Minelab VANQUISH 540 Metal Detector
Until the Minelab Vanquish series arrived on the market, there was no affordably priced Multi IQ metal detector. Astonishingly, the Minelab team came up with the Vanquish series that operates on multiple frequencies to give you more precise target identification, separation, and depth.
Fully Equipped for any metal detecting condition, the Minelab Vanquish has iron bias, iron audio, all-metal mode, and multiple unique search modes, including a custom discrimination mode.
The Minelab Vanquish passed salt water and wet sand beach tests with proper ground balancing and the sensitivity not set too high.
Field tests and air tests proved that the Minelab Vanquish has a slightly slower recovery speed than the Equinox series, but still punches deep, and has excellent target identification.
Minelab Vanquish accessories can be purchased separately and can include carrying bags, rain covers, various sized coils, and aftermarket headphones.
Other amazing features and details of the Minelab Vanquish include lightweight (2.6lbs depending on model), backlight, Bluetooth, wireless option (540 only), rechargeable batteries, and collapsible pack and lock system for easy transportation.For the Minelab Vanquish owners instruction manual go to this LINK.
