But Why?

November 26, 2020 08:19AM avatar
if I chose it would be the V440 as an economical model ... or the EQ 600 as a high class ..

Went with Vanquish 440, poor ol' OregonGregg is low class smiling smiley


In this terrain, the Vanquish 340 simply didn't work properly anymore. The other Top Detectors - EQ 800, Vision, Alter71 and ORX, could be set up to work well enough.

Isn't the Multi IQ in the Vanquish the same Multi IQ that's in the EQ 800 ?? What makes the EQ 800 so much better. Does having more settings to tinker with make it better. Or did you actually run the EQ 800 in a single freq. to make it work better in the tougher soil conditions ?


it's not just the price limit that separates some detectors from others ... these detectors must really be technologically higher than the middle and low-class detectors, which work quite well in less demanding conditions.

So what makes the EQ 800 " technologically higher" over the Vanquish series. I guess I need to study up on Minelab machines. Does the EQ 800 offer more frequencies in its Multi IQ arrangement over the Vanquish series? I just figured Minelab Multi IQ was just Minelab Multi IQ.

Will I not get the whole Minelab Multi IQ experience like you , UtahRich and Del get with your EQ 800's? I also want Golden Forest, Unicorns, Rainbows and Fairy Dust......if not, that certainly will be a bummer............. grinning smiley
