Well Gregg------Seeins as how you are so hell bent on the Vanquish----I'd say 'go for it"------It doesn't have the performance nor is it up to the busted tin hunting capabilities of the E800 (with 6" coil)-----But why be concerned about a little thing like that when it is such a purdy red color!!!--------You better get a Vanquish--you aren't going to be able to live with yourself till you do. smiling smiley
why would I need the 800 or 600 when the vanquish does so much. See enclosed pic of vanquish brochure.

It states the Vanquish:Is Turn On And Go, In Seconds Vanquish Auto-Selects The Best Settings For Your Soil-No Need To Choose Frequencies Or Ground Balance.

It would appear the Vanquish is pretty confident in its abilities.

Whereas the 800& 600 offers a single freq selection....why ?? If Minelab SMF Multi IQ was going to obsolete all other machines, then why did they offer that, single freq. selection. I always wondered about that......and more importantly, and it gets me excited all over again as when the Red Racer came out. Red is good and I might be due for another red machine... maybe smileys with diet Dr. Pepper float

LOL Del ya know me good enough to not take me too serious cool smiley

OK, the serious answer to your question of why I don't get the 800. For starters, OregonGregg and Minelab generally don't go together in the same sentence. I like the Apex as well, but generally speaking it kinda has the same DNA as my other machines.............. The Vanquish is a bit different. Saying all that, the reason for the Vanquish is that it gives me a chance to try a Minelab and try Multi IQ etc. If I go the Nox 800 route with a stock and 6" coil I'm looking at around the $1000 mark. The Vanquish gives me an inexpensive way to give a Minelab SMF machine a try. I realize it is not a Minelab flagship, but I feel it offers enough to get a good taste/get my feet wet with a Minelab machine smiling smiley

Monte: I agree with you in that manufacturers in some instances have put "strange" names/figures on their coils--------but-----
