Minelab Manticore

The Minelab Manticore has finally arrived, and below you will find all my instructional videos on this beast of a machine!

If you're thinking of buying this wonderful machine, then please do so via this link.  This will take you to the Joan Allen website, who are the managed partner for Minelab, so you are in good hands RE after sales care etc.

Video 1 - This is the first pre-release video, where we got to look at the manticore behind the scenes at the Joan Allen Rally

Video 2 -  This is the second time I had the opportunity to have a look at the machine, and ask some questions

Video 3 - No messing around.  The Minelab Manticore is an expensive machine, and here are my first thoughts on build quality, the menus, potential, etc.

Video 4 - Minelab Manticore depth tests.  Multiple items at multiple depths.  No faff.  Just the real deal.

Video 5 - Minelab Manticore 2D mapping, explained.

Video 6 - The I.D numbers to some very common finds.  Commit them to your memory (or even better, write them down!)

MANTICORE with Multi-IQ+ is the most powerful, fastest, and precise metal detector in Minelab’s history. The heart of MANTICORE is its super-charged Simultaneous Multi-Frequency (MULTI-IQ+) engine. This feat of innovation generates an incredible 50% power increase over the best-selling detector series of all time: EQUINOX. When combined with advanced 2D Target Identification (ID) and rich audio options, the detectorist has every bit of vital information arriving at their eyes and ears. MANTICORE is an unrivalled detecting experience that pushes the boundaries of detecting to deliver more power, more depth, and more finds.

Multi-IQ+ is the newest generation Simultaneous Multi-Frequency engine from Minelab, building on the success of the original Multi-IQ. Multi-IQ+ transmits more power through the coil at a wider range of operating frequencies, to light up more targets in the ground. It has completely revamped signal processing providing enhanced discrimination, greater Target ID resolution, improved target separation, and gives you a greater ability to tune discrimination and audio to suit your detecting conditions.

Exceeding expectations with every swing, MANTICORE delivers improved Target ID stability and close target separation. With customisable Ferrous Limits you have unprecedented control to accept ferrous coins, reject complex ferrous targets, or dial in maximum target unmasking in iron.
