The new beast Minelab Manticore detector and my first impressions. The price knocks you off your feet, but let’s leave it for now and start with the ML 105 wireless headphones. The build quality itself is top shelf. It can be discussed whether such closed and thickly upholstered headphones are a good choice. It’s a matter of taste and season.
Everything is complemented by a spiral cable with jack plugs for connecting headphones via a waterproof connector in the panel. Different sound quality and a nice option. Although I would not enter the water with such a set … it will fall and there is no topic.
The armrest is another example of how you can approach it in a practical way. Adjustment with a simple latch instead of a problematic screw. Way to go.
The soft design of the plastics and the strap with the logo complete the whole. It convinces me, all beautifully set on a carbon fiber seatpost with quick-release locks. In the back part, a plug for rinsing the whole after wading in sandy water. Plus.
The handle with a rubberized grip and a good angle, as well as the undercut for the index finger for weight transfer are another plus.
The panel looks sensational and here the performance of the detector is also not surprising. Buttons, display all in place and finished with the highest quality materials.

The whole is well-balanced and compact, you can’t ask for more. No more flooding electronics like in the old Equinox model and no more breaking probe ears. Now the mount has been moved to the lower element of the frame and even if it breaks, it is not the cost of the entire probe. The 11-inch probe has additional reinforcements and does not stand out from the whole.
