History and Good Times are Waiting to be Discovered in the Outdoors

New VANQUISH Series metal detectors from Minelab offer uncompromising performance and accessibility to all

Chicago, IL (June 18, 2020) – History is where you find it. Most of us learn about it in schools, libraries, museums, television and other forms of media. Some are more hands-on, preferring to discover history for themselves by searching for tangible, touchable treasures from the past and unearthing them from the land and beneath the seas. Discoveries range from contemporary finds of recently lost jewelry, to Civil War-era relics, to hoards of forgotten gold and silver coins. Each exciting find tells a story from our common past – a past that extends into our own backyards. You may be surprised by what’s waiting to be discovered in yours.

This is the allure of metal detecting, an exciting and rewarding outdoor pastime that’s quickly growing in popularity, thanks to an explosion in eco-recreation… and detecting equipment that’s rapidly increasing in technology and decreasing in price. 

Enter the new VANQUISH Series of metal detectors from Minelab, the world leader in metal-detecting technology. These advanced and easy-to-use detectors offer uncompromising performance that won’t break the bank. Simple yet powerful, VANQUISH is the smart choice for anyone starting out or stepping up their detecting game. Featuring powerful Multi-IQ technology, multiple Find Modes, a lightweight and collapsible design and much more, VANQUISH detectors deliver more fun and more results, regardless of experience. 

The new VANQUISH Series is powered by Minelab’s Multi-IQ engine – the same technology professionals love about the industry’s best-selling detector, the Minelab EQUINOX. With Multi-IQ Simultaneous Frequency Technology, detectorists enjoy a full range of frequencies that scan and work at the same time. That means they can find all metals in all soils, all of the time. With VANQUISH and Multi-IQ, nothing goes undetected.

Beginning and novice users will find more treasure and less trash with VANQUISH’s Iron Bias feature. For advanced user who want even greater control, the Low Iron Bias setting provides optimum precision.

VANQUISH was born to hunt in all conditions. Turning it on will automatically engage the Noise Cancel feature, which puts a stop to any electrical interference – from thunderstorms to power lines – that stands between you and your treasure. A red LED backlight on the Control Pod improves visibility in low-light conditions, while a water-resistant control pod with included rain cover and a waterproof coil means detectorists can take VANQUISH into the rain or surf. Using proven and finely-tuned algorithms from Minelab’s popular EQUINOX Series, VANQUISH outperforms other detectors in wet sand and salt water.

Featuring a unique snap-lock system that collapses overall length to just 30 inches, the 2.8-pound VANQUISH is easy to pack and go. Its lightweight, sleek design affords hours of comfortable detecting without fatigue.

VANQUISH is feature-packed, giving users the freedom to detect their way, including Multi-IQ Technology, Beach Advantage, Pinpoint Mode, Adjustable Volume, Bluetooth Wireless Audio, and four Find Modes (Coin, Relic, Jewelry and Custom). Sound complicated? It’s not; VANQUISH employs these features and technologies to make detecting easier and more fun than ever.

More coils equal greater flexibility. That’s why VANQUISH is available in 8-, 10- or 12-inch coil sizes, allowing users to detect deeper, more precisely, or in tighter spaces. VANQUISH coils are also available separately and are fast and easy to swap out in the field. Starting at an MSRP of just $199.99, VANQUISH comes in for variants – VANQUISH 340, VANQUISH 440, VANQUISH 540, and the VANQUISH 540 Pro-Pack. So, whether you’re searching for the best starter detector or the ultimate treasure packout, there’s a VANQUISH just for you.

History, excitement and good times are out there just begging to be discovered. What are you waiting for?
