  1. Some Finds From Hunts

    Nice finds Daniel, glad the Nox is working for you.
  2. Equinox 800 At My House!!!

    It didn't hit great but good enough to make me dig it. Glad I did!
  3. Equinox 800 At My House!!!

    It happened, four hunts a little over 3 hours total. All together 9 wheaties and yesterday the rosey. I played ball here when I was a kid 55 years ago. Pk1 with the recovery 6, volume down to 1 iron, 5 next two segments, 25 on the last two. I'm only looking for high conductors.

    That's awesome Tim!! I'm very happy for you. I think we're all having fun!!
  5. Equinox 800 At My House!!!

    I went back out to the ball fields this morning for an hour. I got 5 wheaties. Two of which I could just say man and shake my head. There's been a discussion about getting outside of what you've learned in the past about repeatable signals. 2 of the wheaties were such targets. I was shocked I got 5 wheaties but amazed at 2 of them. I just couldn't hardly believe it when I saw them.

    Thanks Chase! I would suspect probably a colored glass center piece. It was kinda cool but not expensive.
  7. Equinox= True Dirt Fishing

    I ran mine in auto Trac for a while at first and experienced exactly what you said about the target disappearing. I said to myself YIKES!! I won't be doing that anymore. Tim what Skate said about doing the circle around the target and finding the sweet spot that says dig me is good advise. We all have our little sayings as to what we call things. I will tell myself "better circle the wagons on this one" lol. Thanks for sharing Skate!

    Way to go skate! Now you're going to have me listening for that nonrepeatable signal that says better dig me.. Lol.. Hey, I believe you man!! You know for what we had to pay we got one heck of a machine!! Fun and Equinox just go together. Crap, I'm sitting here right now thinking in my head about the sound I'll be listening for.๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜
  9. Equinox 800 - My Take, Commentary, And Testing

    Tim, that's awesome! I've noticed the numbers will jump more sometimes but they're the right numbers. I think maybe it has to do with what's around the target. But, jumpy or not when the sounds right better dig. Lol I've been going to a hunted out ball park in the morning and letting my dog exercise. I didn't want to disc out anything so I turned the volume down in the first three segments so I can just hear them. Anything 21 and up still full volume. I just swing and listen to the soft chatter of pull tabs ect. till a high tone jumps out. The dreaded 21(zinc) I ignore and wait for at least a copper. I pulled two wheaties out last week and hope for a silver soon. But the wheaties were the first older coins I had found out there for quite some time. I'm having a blast playing with noxy... oh, or should I say finding coins others have missed๐Ÿ˜
  10. Equinox 800 - My Take, Commentary, And Testing

    I'm with you on the "hunch to dig" and the coil wiggle all the way. I might add slow to the mix. I'll circle a lot of targets just listening to the machine to give me the better dig me sign or "hunch to dig". I've watched a lot of guys hunt and their finds would go up if they would learn to wiggle that coil... Lol You said it to, even the bigger coil separates really well. I'm looking forward to trying out the 6" when it's available.

    Hit a yard this afternoon. Still pk1
  12. Equinox 800 At My House!!!

    Thanks GB! Yep, it's 1867 and pretty clear under the glass. Pk1 has been very good to me. I think the default setting of 5 on recovery and my swing speed work well together. I tend to go a lot slower than most of the guys I hunt with and the 5 tone I like better than 50 tone. That's just personal preference but works for me.
  13. Equinox 800 At My House!!!

    It seems the older or perhaps worn nickels hit a little lower. I've dug nickels from 10's popping in a little with 11's&12's. 12,13 alternating with your wiggles is a good sign. Solid 13 good but also 1/2 tab number. 12's,13's with a 14 popping in.. bad sign. War nickels hit 13&14...But some will hit higher from what I've read. I've only found 2 our 3 with noxy. If I remember right the 13, 14 with mostly 14's was a good sign on them. The deepest was the shield I got today ... Solid 6"... doubt it was really any deeper. It had a10 pop in a little. Oh, forgot there was an iron grunt with the signal. I dig one of those little nuts that are like pressed into shape and thread onto a screw like bolt. The 10 may have left after I got it out of the way... sorry I don't remember but know the nickel signal cleared up and my first shield nickel showed up. From 10 to 13 I'm gonna dig it thinking it Could be a nickel. Hope that helps some. Good luck and HH!! Tom

    Oh, I got two jefferson, a buffalo,"v", and shield nickel today. If only I could have squeaked a war nickel in there it would have been a clean sweep!
  15. Equinox 800 At My House!!!

    Got to get out today and hit a couple yards. The shield nickel came from a "hunted out" park. I've been hunting in pk1 for about the last month. I've got two more wheaties form a hunted out ball park. The last one was on edge at 5". I only got numbers part time but they were the right ones and the sound was soft but very repeatable. For what ever reason it didn't hit at all in pk2. and repeatable only in one spot in pk1. I was a little off on my plug and when I put the pin pointer in the hole I located the wheatie. I first thought I pushed it straight up and down until I removed it and saw the nice halo behind it. I do sometimes play with segment volumes and do disc out certain things at times. I also have played with the tone break settings. But for the most part its just the stock setting in pk1. I love it!!
