    Equinox Ergonomics - The Challenge

    Most if not all of my criticisms of the equinox, including the ergos, really are more related to my obsessive nature, and not errors of design. After I added the folding modification, I for a time used it with the shaft in a "6:35"position, which mimicks to an extent the ergonomics of an s-shaft. I did conclude the swing felt a little better than straight, but not that much so, and I'm back to the regular straight position.( however, if I find myself wearing certain hiking boots with metal eyelets, I will use the "6:35" position to keep from falsing on my shoes with the closer in swing of the straight shaft. If I do get tired I have the simple bungee /hook setup shown to give an essentially weightless swing.

    6"x10" Coil For Minelab Equinox

    I like the size and shape of a 6"x10" less eccentric than the 5x10 and keep more depth. All I can say is the equinox is worthy of a large assortment of coils, and that includes a 10" concentric. In my opinion they will all sell good, and ultimately there will be a very large number of equinoxes out there so a good business move by Minelab to offer such an assortment.
  3. About my expectation at $179. And I bet the 15" will cost $279. Any guess how much the wm08 costs?
  4. Given the number of equinoxes out there and that it's been some time now, it says something that this thread has so few posts. A pretty good roll out record I'd say. Well done, Minelab

    800 Repaired And 600 On It's Way

    Good news, Norm. And welcome to the dual equinox owners club. I've been alternating between the 600 and 800 but as I branch out I'll likely favor the 800 when doing woods, fields and more challenging spots that the advanced settings would be useful with, and the 600 for parks and unplanned detecting spots. Later I'll keep the 600 with the 6" coil on

    Wm 08 Headphone Modification

    With the module velcroed to the earpiece it's not the size but the weight of it feels like the headphones move a little when I move around , and I just have to get used to it because they are secure. However, I tried it with the Minelab wires phones and because they are already loose on my head, the module makes it feel very unstable.

    Loose Rods, Wobbly Rods, Rod Flex

    I have a 600 and an 800 and neither one has any looseness, wobble or flex.

    Equinox Sound Latency

    As of yet, I haven't noticed any latency, even the few times I had the recovery all the way up to 8. If I ever do notice lag it will be in recovery speed of 7 or 8.
  9. Nice finds do you feel you are digging less iron and trash? I think I am
  10. I made mine using clear, flexible vinyl from fabric section of Walmart ( used for table covers ) It attaches with Velcro and I can make new ones as needed.

    Anderson Shafts Available Soon For Equinox

    Sticking with the stock coil but good for those that prefer these. Will they offer an s-shaft ?

    Wm 08 Headphone Modification

    I soon realized that it has to be removable in order to charge the module. (doh!) i did exactly that used self adhesive Velcro so it stays in use and comes off for recharge.

    Wm 08 Headphone Modification

    The headphones are Amazon basic. They are on ear not over ear and they sound great at 32 ohm. They're only $16 black blue or white, 1/8" jack so no adapter needed to use wm08. I redid with zip ties so I'm good to go- wirelesss
