Notice the lingo has changed.

Using unequal performance seems like vs  obsoletes.

What they should have done to begin with, Imo.

But me a lonely peasant with no engineering degree. Lol

I actually thought their line about "obsoletes all other single frequency" detectors was a good one.  Actually a fair chance that it is 100% true.

"Unequalled performance in all conditions".  Somebody needs to have a word with marketing about this one.  I'm sure they're referring to 'in comparison with other multi frequency machines' but this is just too general.  Leaves themselves wide open for more bad sentiment.

Better than a GPZ on a 1 ounce nugget at 30 inches?   Better than an SDC on a 0.05 gm nugget in WA mineral hell (maybe it is - wouldn't that be cool :ohmy:)?  I know I am not comparing apples with apples but that's the problem with the statement - it is not directly comparing anything either. 

Obsoletes all other single frequency detectors - at least we knew where the comparison was. 

Really, I don't care if they say that it is the best or the worst, I'm happy with what the testers have to say.  But the internet is going to have a field day :sad:

Took me a second to figure out what those round-ish things were.  They look like fancy-shmancy pillar candles.  Maybe it is supposed to be detector porn. :laugh:

“Without Equal” is not necessarily a good thing if you are on the wrong side of the “less than” sign.  Gotta love the marketing department, precision is not their strong suit.

Chase buddy,

I would truly like to meet you.  I would enjoy debating you too.  Would prove interesting.  So is the glass half empty or half full??

Please don't answer question.

I will answer this - would like to road trip it to your neck of the woods some time and hit some TN sites with you so we could do some real detector test nerd damage together and find some cool relics in the process.  And then I could show you some nasty hot trash ridden VA spots that just have to be hiding some buttons and plates that I think the EQ might just sniff out.  Excited to get this sucker and compare notes.

      First two pics are from previous hunts at a fresh water beach with the ID Edge.
      Found an area where the sand moved out a bit and made some older finds.  The 2 large rings had been in the water quite a while the small one is a newer drop probably from last year all marked 925.

      and today's very first finds with the Nox.  Small Sterling Silver bracelet and the usual stuff.  The melted car looks a bit like a Delorean that perhaps did too many time travels and the large metal ball.. I have no idea what that's from. Perhaps a weight from a fishing net?

      Well for me at least 😀 So another 2 hour hunt at the pounded out early 1700's Hole, abandoned prob around 1850 or 1860. I Kept circling in the general vicinity of the home site and found a few more buttons and lead bullets. I had a faint but audible signal which read 13/14 and from a good depth out came the little Georgian strap buckle. The buttons were reading at 9/10 in Field 2. The little buckle might not be a silver coin but I'm totally happy that I found it. I've never found one so small or seen one to be honest! I think the conical button might be militia issue as I've had them before with militia insignia on the front. I like that button because the shank is Wayyy off centre! I guess that one was made on a Friday 😁 I thought I might be out this weekend but its rain/thunderstorms both friggin days 😢 Good Luck to all who get out! I'm really starting to think this Nox 800 is going to be one heck of a ride!
      Oh, penny in there for scale.

      I got my new equinox 600 in and noticed the armrest strap is too short to make it back to the velcro.   Basically it hits the velcro but only maybe a 1/2 inch.  Anyone else with this issue and what did you do?

      Had a great club hunt last Saturday - found some type of ID tag.  Been researching all week but nothing yet... This was close to a foot deep ..

      Even though the Equinox handles the old school yards where they have discarded the coal waste for decades, it still struggles when the ground is saturated.  I went hunting Sunday and the machine was very hard to hunt with, continuous ground chatter.  Tried each preset program with both GB 0, manual GB and tracking and all displayed issues with this ground. Finally, I opened up the screen and the results were astonishing, continuous iron audio reports from the waste.  Decreased sensitivity to 15 and increased the recovery to 8 and finally started finding non-ferrous items mixed in the cinder waste.  Amazing just how fast this machine can recover amongst all the cinder.  The ground really needs to be bone dry to hunt with a VLF machine of any kind but the Equinox did okay.  My PI machine is still the raining champ when it comes to this type of ground conditions.
      Still waiting on 1st Texas and their new PI and I’m hoping it has some sort of discrimination feature.

      I had about 90 minutes around lunchtime on Sunday, while my wife and son were out shopping, to hit a couple of the vacant military family housing units within walking distance of our house.  THese houses are scheduled for demolition this year, and were built between 1958-1964. Two small front yards on Park 1, NC, GB Auto, 20 sens, APTX LL phones, Ferrous 1, 50 tones, 3 recovery.  
      I actually ignored what were likely pennies after the first half hour. Looking for better.
      Ended up after 90 minutes with one Silver 1951 Quarter, 2 wheaties, four clad quarters, six clad dimes, one nickel, and six copper pennies.  The unusual was a 1940's-1950's US Air Force button, and a Fleur de Lise (sp?) Large button from the front yards.  Happy to have hit silver again within 3 minutes walk from our house, and a military bottle opener as a final bonus!  Lovin this 600, and can't wait for the 800 I still have on order!  10 days to go before we move from this base in Florida to Oklahoma. Hopefully, virgin ground on base there as well!
