New-Minelab-Manticore -The-Beast -Metal-Detector

New Minelab Manticore

Well, what a nice surprise. Minelab has come out with the BEAST. The new Manticore metal detector. This should be another big hit for Minelalb. Does it improve on the Minelab Equinox 800 or the CTX 3030? Our feeling is that it is the MInelab 800 on steroids. We love to keep you up to date on anything new and this looks like the Minelab announcement has generated a lot of activity in the metal detecting world. Here is what we know about the Manticore. We will continue to post here with any news about the detector.

Minelab is currently receiving and shipping small orders to Minelab dealers. Orders will be shipped as soon as our allocation has been received. We are taking PRE-ORDERS - Cancel anytime.
