Manticore with 11 , or Equinox with the 15 , I love the coverage of the 15 , even though the Manticore goes deep , Love the NOX set up , since it didn't sell , the Nox & 15 is still an option , question for other members in the wet sand , what way would you go Manticore & 11 , or Nox & 15 :?::shrug: decision time this weekend :drums: TBB , not picky , it's a short season here July & August , Minelab is late , as usual :mad:
No brainer. Cmon bro. Nox 15. You are going after the crowds and fresh drops. No need to worry about deep targets. You need coverage to beat out the other suckers out there. Unless you go late , then that sucker is you. 🤣

Earl, I have taken off, BY MYSELF, for FOUR summer hikes of about 6 weeks each over here in Europe. Who's in control? 🤔
You stuck it in... now finish it off and twist it

How is he going to hunt with his dog? Are dogs allowed on the beach with people? Up here they are not.. .

Ahhh..ok , that's cool. Jam as much as you can seeing the sites. Consider that a "scouting" trip. I wouldn't lug that around either then. I'm sure you guys had a great time. How's the food ?
Not a big fan of their food. Bacalao (cod) is their main staple and is not something I care for. But this is the best for me here!

Back to the serious part, is anyone literally testing an optional coil on the Manticore yet? My 11" factory coil is exceptional on the MC, far better than any other Minelab factory coil on their other machines. I have bought about every one for other ML units. TIA

Bacalao can be a bit too salty, requiring lots of cervezas to counteract the salt overdose.:yes:
That dish looks like Polvo a la Lagareiro, a traditional Portugese octopus dish. Have no fear Craig, it is olive oil. :D

Felix, if you get tired of eting octopus, try Portugese porco preto, it will blow your mind. This celebrated Portuguese black pork is unique to Southeastern Portugal and will simply melt in your mouth.
, I like Tako. But that yellow stuff. Butter ?
I'm with you KOB, I prefer takoyaki. Also like saki ika with my beer.

Below is excerpt from the above link concerning M8 Manticore coil. Folks have witnessed pretty good ops on smaller gold with stocker 11”. So the M8 seems extraordinary if you ask me.

Well , I guess you don't know about the upgrade Kob , because you don't have one , the new upgrade will help with iron , better than the EQ800 , I usually hunt 30 blocks down & back , so coverage you take with a grain of salt , maybe because your beaches are slim , don't know , I can tell you East coast is much different than the West coast , happy hunting !

I feel the same UNTIL I can hear actual users running any coils besides the factory 11" coil. Let's get honest.
Actually I only posted this thread , to see if anyone new when the extra coils were coming out , since TNSS has super clue on his lips :razz: Every thing is so top secret , flaunting his freebee coils nobody else has , they will be available Mid-- to end of July , cheers .
