Today, my dealer said the first batch will be shipped out by Minelab at the end of the month, probably not in time for Christmas. Then Minelab will send out subsequent batches 2 weeks apart until they catch up with all the preorders.

I preordered mine the weekend of release back in mid-September *and* paid in full upfront at that time, so I should be in the first batch. Fingers crossed the wait is almost over...

Speaking out of turn here and with some anger.

That is very disappointing news. If they can create a brand new car/phone in a year, EVERY year, there is no reason why this detector should be delayed even one more day. Call my expectations unrealistic if you will, but we all know deep down that if the right motivation is there, it can be done. QUICKLY.

And as for the argument that they need time to make it right, they had YEARS.

I wouldn't get too angry, disappointed or anything else over something I read on the forum that didn't come directly from Minelab. I'm sure different dealers will have different delivery dates, especially those in different parts of the world. I'm not saying the post is hearsay or untrue but I would hesitate betting on such information at this time being hard, set in stone facts. No use getting angry, happy or anything else until something actually happens, doesn't happen or Minelab makes an official statement.

Thank you for your input it is appreciated. Sometimes I let my anger get the better of me. In the beginning, there were several Minelab related sources saying an earlier December release. They should of provided info by now. My ground is not frozen yet but in a week or two it will be. I just wanted to get out BEFORE the deep freeze.

The fact that in a few short weeks, half the US will be in the frozen tundra. If they release anytime during the winter,
they may loose sales based on only the southern state reviews. Why wait til the middle of winter to release a new, hyped up machine ????

Thankfully I live on the east coast and can hunt almost year round.

Come on Minelab !!!!!

Truthfully, its only the upper middle 1/4 and the new england states that freezes up. Pretty much everything south of the mason dixon stays thawed except for a few weeks. The south, southwest and west coast open year round.

They can only release it when it's ready and winter or not a jillion are spoken for

Well...............they can release it whenever they want to release it , there were no official dates given other than early 2018 and..................................... " possibly " end of Dec. but that always did sound like wishful thinking. Its not as if they keep moving out the release date , as of yet they are still on track. Kick back , relax ,......do some detecting if you can.....or read a good book , before you know it they will be shipping out the equinox.

Because not everything is about the NorthEast USA.
There are other parts of the world out there.
