The good thing about the Vanquish 540.

October 03, 2022 10:52AM avatar
You're right, I seen so much positive feedback on the Vanquish 540 being a really high value detector in a very pleasant to use package.


I especially refer to the Pro Pack that provides two excellent coils for most Coin Hunting applications. I have the mid-dize coil now as well, but keep the 5X8 mounted most of the time for most typical hunting conditions. I do go with a different make/model with a smaller 5" to 6" coil in the very dense debris, especially were there might bee 'pocket-spills' or other coin clusters. But average areas see the 5X8 used.

I had a few of the V-540 Pro Packs before and found it to be a very good unit using the 9X12 DD for hunting open fields or large grassy parks with minimal shallower masking trash. That unit and coil combo showed very good VDI read-out on the mid-depth to deeper coins. It reminded me of the performance I used to get with my Explorer II's.

Better balanced and lighter weight and also better for working trashier areas and for hitting on the Nickel range targets. A nice complement to add back in my detector team, especially now that I am moving back to 85% urban Coin Hunting.

'Simple' is good but I have used 'top-end' models.

Rich your response was better than you may have imagined.
