Awesome machine!

I have an equinox 800 which I loved till I got this machine. This can do everything and I love that it breaks down to 18 inches my arm does not hit the box anymore. The noise clarity is awesome I can’t say enough about this machine I just love it

Great upgrade from the Equinox 800

Love the 2D display and Solid Construction

Still learning the machine, but its already found 3 silver rings at the beach! Gotta a way to go, but I am impressed so far.

Lots to love

I received the Manticore in about a week, much quicker than I expected. Going from the MineLab 540 to the Manticore has been a huge learning curve which is why I subtracted a star. My muscle memory, both hand & brain, are still learning all the new options. I definitely enjoy the use of the USB to charge the machine and find the headphones pair much better. I also like the compact size, providing an opportunity to carry it easier. I’m looking forward to the availability of a smaller coil, hopefully coming soon. Once I learn all the bells and whistles I will be set for life.

David S.

I like this machine. I have used it about 9 or 10 times. I have found around $20 dollars an five rings so far. Just have to figure it out a little better. So far I like the manicore.
