Default Vanquish and Simplex

Nice silver for the Vanquish, and showing how well the iron bias works vs the Simplex if you want to avoid digging big iron.

Seems the 340 would be the direct competitor to the Simplex. ($199) Be very interesting to see these 2 compared.

Coil connections look the same on the Vanquish to the Equinox, both run multi iq. Would the 8 in. coil be interchangeable with the Equinox and likewise conversely.

The coils are not interchangeable according to Minelab due to different chips in the coils and different frequency weighting.
