If there’s anything obvious about Minelab, it’s that they have a consistent pattern of releasing new detectors…and that those new detectors invariably improve the hobby in some way. Initial reports from users say that the Manticore is a step up from the current Minelab detectors considered “kings of the hill”…the CTX 3030 and Equinox 800.
