  1. I got all that as well, they even said my item has shipped, The hen late yesterday I get another email from them that said it was back ordered until March 31 - what a joke!
  2. As Steve pointed out, if another company one up'd minelabs technology, say a company that consistently listens to their customers, regularly communicates with them, and has excellent customer service, many would jump ship. There may be one such company with the ability that pull it off.
  3. Thanks for the report. I may have missed it, but what search mode/settings were you using? I'm very curious to see how it runs in the gold prospecting mode for relic hunting, I'm thinking it might be killer in mineralized nasty soil with nails and iron. HH, Brian
  4. Cabelas Has Equinox In Stock Sold Out

    Thank you for your order for EQUINOX 800 METAL DETECTOR. The vendor has advised us that the item is currently out of stock and has been backordered. They are expecting to ship approximately the end of March. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused & thank you for your patience. I've been buying electronics since I was a kid, I have never in my life seen such a cluster muck as this.
  5. Thanks Steve for posting this! Are they downloadable to listen to while traveling?
  6. I once dug an Asian 24K gold mens signet ring that read right at zinc penny on my F75 LTD, and the only reason I dug it was because I was at an old site and thought it might be an IHP. It was a pleasant surprise
  7. Cabelas Has Equinox In Stock Sold Out

    That makes sense Steve. I never thought it was anything cynical, but it certainly created an interesting situation, and for those that pre-ordered in September, cast a shadow of doubt on ML, but I suspect you're right, it's likely a benign contractual obligation.
  8. Fun In The Sun

    That's a nice hot rock all right
  9. Nokta Impact And Iron Volume

    I wouldn't buy another detector that DID NOT have adjustable iron audio. I was first introduced to it on my Racer 2, and there's no doubt it's a valuable tool, particularly for those of us that relic hunt iron infested environs. HH, Cal
  10. Cabelas Has Equinox In Stock Sold Out

    Wondering if you had the same idea I did....I still plan to honor my dealer order....and someone will likely get a great deal on a "slightly used" EQ800 in the "Bargain Cave"....just sayin'......shame that ML takes care of their regular dealers the way we've observed, not to mention those of us that had pre-orders in with our dealers since September.
  11. Cabelas Has Equinox In Stock Sold Out

    I pulled the trigger on an EQ800 yesterday AM when they showed up, and the status now shows as shipped. Not sure how much time I'll have to play around with it for a while BUT the nice thing is Cabela's has a 90 day return policy (even includes a postpaid return shipping label) so you get 90 days to bond with it. AFAIK that's something no dealer on the planet offers.
  12. 1st Hunt With Equinox 600

    Nice job JP, that's the kind of vids I'd enjoy seeing until I get mine! Are you in San Diego? I'm in NorCal, so am looking forward to hitting HMB, Santa Cruz, etc., to see how it does. This winter has sucked for beach erosion though
  13. Follow along as I hunt the Spanish Trail and find OLD SILVER, a RARE BUTTON, interesting relics and more using the new Makro Multi Kruzer !!
  14. When Will The Second Batch Arrive??

    There are still a few, very few, metal detecting manufactures that form a good relationship with their customers, definitely not what I'm seeing from Minelab.
  15. Equinox Too Noisy?

    I've found that the 5kHz frequency on both the Nokta Impact and Makro multi Kruzer is unusable at 8 out of 10 sites that I detect. 5 kHz seems to be a very noise susceptible frequency.
