    Pulled The Trigger Today. Manticore On The Way!

    Took the day off from work today to hit a new site I found and was hoping that I'd avoid the rain as it's rained 15 of the last 20 weekends. Well, no luck avoiding the rain, aarghh!

    My pinpointer died, and my 10" DD Coil was acting funny, so switched over to my 6" DD Elliptical Coil. After many hrs of swinging decided to call it quits and all I had to show for my efforts was a button.

    I love my V but after many hrs of swinging my shoulders are killing me.

    Seeing I had to get a new pinpointer anyhow decided I've waited long enough & called Bart to place my order. When the M8 Coil is available I'll get one.

    Looking forward to a lighter machine as well as newer technology!

    Thanks Bart!

    You're going to lose a pound and a half! Best of luck with it! You folks got lots more rain than we did just 100 miles away. Pretty soon it will be snow

    Yea, I just can't stand having my shoulders killing me after an all day hunt. Just woke up after a long nights sleep with Advil pm. It works great but I hate the groggy feeling from the sleep aid in it.

    I'm so tired of the rain for the last 15 out of the last 20 weekends, but my lawn looks great!

    I hope you enjoy it. I love mine but I think I love the Nox 900 more.

    I am patiently waiting on the M8 coil too. I think it will be great but the Manticore was announced over a year ago and still no coil!
    Detectors I use: Minelab Equinox 900 & Manticore
    Favorite finds I have made:
    1,000+ silver coins
    92pcs of 1700's Trade Era Silver
    Copper Culture Indian Artifacts
    125+ War of 1812 Era buttons and relics
    My wife
    (probably should have started with that one)

    Yea they dropped the ball on that one, you'd think they would know that we like our coil choices.
