Fisher Manta to the beach

Post by LE.JAG » Mon Apr 09, 2018 12:34 am

Hello,

result of my last four tides
on the Passover weekend and some news of the upcoming Fisher
to Manta technology. Many targets and one of gold :D

I test the latest version, release scheduled for the end of the year
a high voltage induction pulse / 16 volts /
offering a very high sensitivity on gold
calibrate to 7us (never in large series)

for the moment I find him only one defect
= It requires digging ever deeper

Well it looks like your testing a great beach machine. Impressive haul of items :D

That is a great haul you have there, well done.

Looks like a promising machine, I will be needing another pulse machine soon as my Crossbow is on it's last legs now.

Without a pulse induction machine is the best for wet sand and salt water. Nice scoffs!

Ray, it's the deepest machine for the beach, that I have used to date
the sensitivity on gold is really exceptional ;)

How is the iron ID-exclusion on the Manta doing - does it work to full depth?

Hi,
in iron rejection mode
which is not really a discrimination
rather what I call from double sight ... take gold in iron
the performance is kept at 95% compare to all metals

which will allow him to go get a gold ring in a carpet of nails
and even stronger, take gold in the volcanic sand
what no other detector is able to do so far

still a little patience,
the production phase is for very soon ::g

Thanks,

I do not have information on the price, it's marketing Fisher
who manages this part...
I only do beach tests for Alexandre
who now works for the Fisher group

all I can say is that after using all the Pulsepowers
done by Eric Foster and most of the pi for the beach
I've never had such a deep and powerful machine on gold


in all-metal mode the depth is scary
the 50 cm are easily reached on small targets
the revolutionary currencies in the photo (decimes)
were taken more than 45 cm deep
provide a good gamatte :D

and in iron rejection mode, he will take, low gold and platinum conductors,
where nobody can find them for the moment ;)

Thanks sounds good to me Le Jag ;)

How about the machine is it waterproof or will the new box let it be used underwater.

My only problem is that my Deepstar has been fused to my right arm for so long....

yes it will be waterproof and then a version
special terramanta nugget or gold coin in the land
And that's just the beginning...

I greatly exceed the performance of my Goldscan 5c
who already exceeded the deepstar III

the expected delay on the aquamanta is 7us (never seen at the beach)

Many thanks for the info Le Jag. ::g

Think I need to buy one hopefully the price will not be to high.

Some interesting things in the works will look forward to see what the inland model can do.

How about the depth on rings around 8g can it reach 60 cm and beyond.

not what, 50 cm is possible on a big ring
which is already really deep d;]
with the 12 inches but it is expected later larger coils

There will always be a place for a high powered pulse for those specialist user.

18 inches on large rings and coins in sand can already be achieved with other high end detectors if you know what you are doing. Admitedly the signals aren't very loud. ::g

yes, but they are few
and none sound as smooth as manta ...

I do not use the 15-inch, 12 is already exhausting to Beach
when I say 50 cm it's a value on
will probably be more, I already dig targets more than 50cm
but I did not do a great depth test for two reasons

the first, when we move the sand we never get the sound
of a target naturally in place for years

and second: too lazy to dig 80 cm just to do a test :-*

Depth sounds very good for 12" coil down to 50cm on small targets as well.

Have dug rings deeper than 50cm with the 15" coil on my Deepster you are right it is not always easy to gauge the depth on targets moving after digging but sometimes when clay is in range it is nice to dig a chunk of it of the bottom to find the ring sitting in its resting place. ::g

Looks like a promising machine, I will be needing another pulse machine soon as my Crossbow is on it's last legs now.

Hi Brian, it's getting on for 6yrs old now and the effects of salt and sand are starting to show on the control box. As the box is not waterproof you can not rinse it off after a session so the screws are rusty and suspect the same is happening inside.

For a machine that cost me about £200 new it has rewarded me handsomely so getting time to retire it and move on.
