  1. My Equinox " Coming Out " Statement

    When the time is right I am sure the host here will reveal even more concerning the Equinox. Actually if folks will remember the MX Sport, the host here got one of those and was quick to point out something wasn't right in its operation. So in saying this, I am glad Steve has at least used the Equinox some- gotten a feel for it. If the detector passes muster with him = is a very good start IMO.
  2. Saw where a gent had received one of these. http://www.garrett.com/hobbysite/2222600_6halfx9_at_pro_searchcoil_en.aspx https://metaldetectingforum.com/showthread.php?t=254748 Btw here is complete list of Garrett coils available for AT series detectors. http://www.garrett.com/hobbysite/hbby_at_searchcoils_en.aspx

    I haven't tried using. Generallly no cell phone service in my area.
  4. Deus Elliptical And Round HF Coil Feedback

    IMO if money is a concern and you don't nugget hunt, get the HF elliptical. The elliptical coil is what I call a stand out coil. Can venture using it into a site, especially loaded with iron and nails and pulls some finds.

    Alright thanks. Guess I'm not keeping up. Lol

    So Steve, even using single frequency, Equinox has no true all metal??
  7. Alright, Some time spent with Detech Chaser unit. Overall feel, weight, ergonomics units feels pretty darn good. This detector, I don't recommend for a beginner detectorist. It is a hot one. Detector seems is certainly not above average when it comes to coping with emi, satisfactory at best IMO. The way the unit is layed out, makes more difficult to use in the field. Change tones and you have to go back and redial in settings. For the life of me, don't know why they designed like this. Unit is a 14khz unit, but a person using based on how small of nonferrous it will strike would think unit is running higher frequency. Running gain on high, hold on you are in for a ride, at least I was.lol Have run unit in a few sites. Will not go into more detail just yet. Will say right now, I see more I dislike as far as operation than I like. More later.

    Did you look down under tracking history tab? This is where they put the " out for delivery" comment on a package I recently received.
  10. My Equinox " Coming Out " Statement

    What you say here may be true. But not in the strictest sense. Why? A few questions need to be answered first. Are the Equinox coils set up like CTX, meaning contain electronics making them proprietary? What I am sayin is, the biggest weakness for Equinox may be lack of coil selection (size). But yes as far as the detector electronics, Equinox may indeed "obsolete" the 2 detectors you mention here with equivalent sized coils, even slightly bigger, or even slightly smaller. Only time will tell. Also, besides soil mineral handling, emi handling too, may come into play making Equinox superior on average vs the others.

    It worked. Meaning I was teased. Lol I have some 5 bars ground to try when I finally get one.
  12. Hello Everyone

    Nice looking coin. Congrats and thanks for sharing.
  14. Why Is The Equinox Sent Out For Testing Now?

    Your use of the word NOW. Sounds like the Equinox has been in testing phase for a while. Don't know exactly when the host here received unit. But all possessors of Equinox I'm sure are providing feedback to Minelab as necessary. Be patient. Lots of moving pieces here, including logistics.
