Nexus vs rest of the world

The race is on for the best, free flashlights, vibrations, water resistance, 50% more power, 2D, 3D, and 6D graphs … thousands of slogans and advertisements attack us from every side. What do we get in return?! Often the same thing just in a slightly different package. Do you know this feeling? In a good restaurant, the old proven pork chop served with mun mushrooms and mars fern moss looks like an exotic and unknown dish. After the first bite, reality returns…

In all this, Nexus Detectors seems like a relic of the past. Old, but well-made knob detectors remind us of the years that are behind us. Nothing could be more wrong, because inside there is electronics that is light years ahead of everything we know!!

Advertisement?! You’ll find out soon, some people will pick up their jaw from the floor or buy hemorrhoid ointment, such burning can’t be endured without anesthesia!!!

Ok, relax, the working time on ten batteries is not overwhelming, but you can always change them in the field, the weight, depending on the probe, is survivable, because the balance is great. Yes, it is not equipment for beginners, although they will master it with a little patience.

Why am I so excited like a pedophile in a toy store?! The reason is simple – a performance that other manufacturers can only dream of. Depth and stability of work are unattainable by any other device! I write this with full responsibility! There is a video at the end of this article that shows it all in detail, but it’s nothing compared to full EMI immunity and virtually no iron masking! No other device has such capabilities and it is not a minimal difference, it is a gap that the leading manufacturers have not been able to overcome for years and do not even come close to a meter.

What will we see in the movie? A very interesting test of a small coin close to the nail, so interesting that it cannot be repeated on any other device. The minted silver coin, however, is a low conductor and lies close to the iron on the conductivity axis, but is not masked by it!

Another test is a mass of aluminum tear-offs from cans and a coin also without a problem. Tests did not in the air but on the ground full of iron in the so-called. 3D configuration. Total shock, it looks like a completely impossible thing to do on another, even the latest metal detector!!! Yes, it’s a single operating frequency in addition.

Be sure to follow this blog regularly! We have such a detector and we are not afraid to use it! Price and availability? Only on request, and with these performances, the price is justified, which cannot be said about other manufacturers!

Wasp nest

Someone put a stick in a wasp’s nest, and this time it could turn out great for us Detectives. Meryll accused Minelab of fraud in the form of an unfulfilled promise in the form of 50% more power generated on the probe winding, admitted that he would verify this data in confrontation with the manufacturer, this is not only his opinion but also a few other users. As I wrote in the previous article, it does not matter to me, because the depth is just one element of the entire detector and it is not the only one, besides it does not have to work in the form of standards limiting devices and it is possible that the manufacturer circumvented it in a different way… well, unless it does not meet these standards … it’s even better for us!

Fortunately, Minelab reacted and decided to clarify all the disputed information in the next video on the channel of our colleague from the USA. Well done to chief engineer Mark Lawrie. It promises to be an interesting discussion, maybe for the first time we will get some interesting information about the technology of this leading Australian manufacturer.

Has Minelab lied to its users?

One American YouTuber started a war claiming that Minelab lied to users by claiming 50% more power in the Manticor, which does not comply with the FCC standards listed with the device. To be more precise, the point is that the data declared by the manufacturer does not show that the device is stronger than the upper limit of the standard, i.e. 30 dBm, and this also applies to the previous Equinox model and many others from the Australian offer.

Without going into details, it doesn’t necessarily work the way it’s presented. Electromagnetic field, radio waves, who cares? In fact, the equipment has to be efficient, effective, and within financial reach.

Finally, the mania of depth. What matters to me is separation and working in an area overburdened with iron and garbage. You know too strong lights in the fog and we are blinded. Then there’s the ease of learning, handling, manufacturer support, and price.

Will we get a much better device for almost PLN 10,000?! No, and absolutely not, it’s not a revolution, it’s a well-made metal detector, unfortunately at a price unaffordable for most Seekers!

Why no YT channel seriously mentions this is hard to say. It’s like comparing the Manticore to other cheaper devices. Does it beat them in every way? No!

Weight and ergonomics are much cheaper. Performance? They are similar, often the difference is 2-3 cm, and the price is 150% higher.

So who should spend this money and why? Geeks and experienced users who want to set up the equipment only after themselves and the conditions prevailing at the search site. They are the recipient of such detectors. Let’s remember that in Poland legally investing in equipment does not translate into profits … anyway, the difference is made by a good place, experience, and equipment at the very end. In reverse, it doesn’t make sense!

Here is FCC data for Minelab Manticore (click!)
