  1. F-Pulse Pinpointer Report

    As soon as I get mine, I will let you know how it works for me. Since the F-Pulse frequency can be adjusted, it should work fine. Fingers crossed.
  2. F-Pulse Pinpointer Report

    Mine arrived today. I will post more after I get a chance to put it through it's paces.
  3. Challenge

    I'm in! After I get mine of course. Dollar coins don't pop-up that often here. You might have me there... can I substitute zinc pennies for dollars?
  4. When Will The Second Batch Arrive??

    So true! The acting is better here though. They cry real tears .
  5. When Will The Second Batch Arrive??

    I ordered through BigBoysHobbies.com and was required to pay the full price even though the detector was months out. There is nothing GREEDY, or usual, about paying for an item long before you get it. Back in the day, when you ordered products from a catalog, it could take a month or two to get your order. If you've ever ordered from vendors overseas, it can take months to get your item. Once I ordered a hand made Khukuri from Nepal. That order took 120 days at least to get, and I was required to pay in full beforehand. People today have little patience. It's an instant gratification world we live in. If somebody was clever enough to figure out how to get an Equinox from Cabela's without waiting, then good for them. I'm sure Cabela's received the same quantity as Smellyco. And since Cabala's doesn't take pre-orders, they just sold them first come first served. Seems fair to me. Wish I thought of it!

    # 7 sounds pretty good to a # 14!
  7. Gary Drayton - Equinox For Beach & Water Hunting

    I'm convinced I made the right decision preordering the Equinox.
  8. Equinox Vs Wive's

    I vetted my wife with a 5 mile hike and a visit to the pub afterwards. My wife thinks it looks ridicules but she loves me just the same. Don't let that stop you.
  9. What Is Your Reasoning For A New Equinox?

    My wife supports any purchasing decisions I make, whether it's a new motorcycle, or a new detector. We both work hard, we live and enjoy life. The funny thing is, she would say: "you should get that geiger". Shes calls metal detecting "geigering" and usually laughs when she says it. The reason I like the 800 is because of it's all around capabilities. The ultimate detector to me is one that can do it all. Do it all well, and break down into a size that's easily carried in a backpack. I want a detector I can take on a Sunday ride and not have to worry where I end up, or the conditions I might face. Freedom is what I'm looking for in a "geiger", and that's what the Equinox 800 offers.
