I’ve always been fascinated by metal detectors, but never got around to buying one. So I was thrilled when I received the new Vanquish 540. I live close to Oceanside Beach, so I was excited to test it out. After a couple of uses, I can now call myself a detectorist.
The Vanquish 540 comes chock full of great features, including Multi-IQ technology, audio control, iron-bias control, red LED backlight, and rechargeable batteries. What’s more, it comes with a waterproof 12” coil as standard for greater depth.
What is Multi-IQ? Minelab’s revolutionary Multi-IQ technology combines the power of multiple detectors into one — all working for you at the same time. Simply turn it on and go.
Select one of the four search modes: Coin, Relic, Jewelry, or Custom — then start scanning. Each mode is pre-programmed and optimized to give you the best performance, anytime and anywhere: whether you’re at a park, field, or beach. You can even save your favorite settings to a custom search mode.
The Vanquish 540 handles tough terrain. It dominates at the beach in wet sand and salt water. With the Vanquish 540, 25 discrimination segments deliver ultimate control over what metals you want to accept or reject.
I plan to bring my Vanquish 540 metal detector to the beach every time I go.
