Proof That Multi Iq Obsolete Other Single Freq Vlf ! In An Easy Test !

Recommended Posts

Hello , 

It would be great if the youtubers like calabash and others  who have lot of followers make a video of that to share at maximum .

- Take 12-15 differents coins of your country ( the coins you use all the day ) 

-Make a pile (heap ?) with that coins ,like a little tower 

-Keep this pile beetween your thumb and other finger .

-Swing that in front of the coil , at 3-4 inches , the side of the coins ! 

-Now try that with all the detect mode , not need to change factory presets ( maybe only the accept to 0,1,2 in field 2 ) , you are free to try differents settings later .

-The only and important setting for the moment is to change frequency , try 5,10,15,20,40 and multi in each detect mode . Of course multi in the two beach and 20,40,mutli in gold .

What is happening ?:smile:

I know the results , but i want to know the result of the coins of USA,England, australia ,canada .... So please share your results in comments or video

Make that with different detectors , if you have impact or deus or other who have various frequency , try to switch all frequency . 

You can try that with HF white coil if you have , but ....

 

The conclusion is multi IQ obsolete the others single freq .   It is more or less to say what calabash said in his video .

 

We can debate of that .

I know one thing for sure. The sign of a successful advertising campaign is how long people talk about it. The obsolete thing was intentially provocative for this reason. Many people do not really understand the meaning of the word obsolete, which has helped. The fact that a half a year later people are still discussing the ad would make it an extremely successful ad, no matter what people think of the subject matter. Ironically every time somebody complains about the ad they are actually doing the advertisers bidding! :laugh:

I'm used to the word "obsolete" being thrown around as a complete all things tech nut. In tech parlance it can carry different connotations. It's most often used by users themselves rather than the actual tech companies. It seems to automatically follow from a statement by Apple for example that they will no longer support or issue updates for a certain product or platform. The end user, following the lead of tech bloggers, then calls the product or platform obsolete and it is then avoided like a plague but for some stubborn old timers and cult followers. Minelab was I'm sure very aware of the connotations of their chosen verbiage and how people would run away with it, because as I alluded to, you generally don't hear that word from a company directly, so it hits harder when you do. I understood immediately what it would have to mean for their purposes though. That they had packed into one machine what it would take several single frequency machines to accomplish. General use single frequency machines can no longer stand on their own as proximate competition to their new models. And that is what it has meant in the tech sector too in reality. That the gap in ability has so widened between the new innovative product and the old that disposable capital being equal, no reasonable person would choose the older "outdated" or "obsolete" products, though they will still work at a base level.

I agree with Steve on the advertising and marketing smarts at Minelab. No, the Equinox does not "obsolete" every other metal detector. It does however, offer detectorist's something we have wanted since forever - an Affordable, Waterproof, lightweight, All-Around land and sea, metal detector.

It will eventually kill expensive single-frequency machines, like digital photography killed one-hour-photo shops. Other manufacturers will either catch up, or relegate themselves to making $200.00-$500.00 machines. Would YOU buy a Multi-Kruzer, or a Equinox 600?:ph34r:

I have the Equinox 600 and would not trade it for the Multi-Kruzer, given my favorable experience with the Nox.  But I have not used the Kruzer and would like to hear more about how the Multi-Kruzer does up against the Nox.  Price and feature-wise, they are both targeted to the same niche and if any machine gives the Nox real competition in that market segment it will probably be the Kruzer.

It has been pointed out many times that the word obsolete is nothing more that a marketing ploy and so many people keep spouting it as if it is something special, It is Not !.

Any of the top of the range single frequency machines from the last 10 or 15 year can do just as much as the newer models and in fact some of them have a head start due to the amount of accessory coils that are available, And when it comes to beach detecting nothing on the market to date is going to compete with BBS and FBS machines unless a person uses a PI machine at the cost of discrimination,

The VLF market is being flooded with many different flavours and all the hype about EQ being the all seeing eye has fallen short, The fact is It is a damn good detector but the depth abilities are very much the norm, Where the EQ does excel is it gets the novice up and running as soon as he/she opens the box, We will not see any major improvements in the VLF world until someone makes a VLF version of the GPZ-7000, regardless of what VLF's come out we are just treading water until that VLF-7000 becomes a reality.

Here's two new videos by Calabash Digger that show where the Deus has a leg-up over the Equinox in his type of hunting.

Yep, like I said it's a great machine but they all have their weak points and vice versa.

Good video, thanks for posting.

I have not used the Equinox but I can tell you I am nothing but impressed with the Mult-Kruzer Is it making my single frequency detectors obsolete? absolutely not!

 

 I started to watch the video below and the first thing I seen was a nail board. I'm not bashing anyone, I'm not judging anyone but I personally take nothing from any video comparing detectors air testing on a board. I have proven to myself with several detectors over many years that the information provided by air testing on a board is not a good indication of how a detector will react to targets that have been in the ground for a long period.

I agree but it is not really an air test because the items are on the ground so the machine would take that in to account, It is more of a surface test "ground enabled " I know of quite a few machines that will pick out the targets doing that test, The real problems start when the targets get past a certain depth.

      Has anyone had any experience with these things? 

      Electromagnetic and magnetic interferences could be extremely annoying when you are looking for that hard to find gold nugget. Most of the noise is picked up by the search coil but a significant level of noise is being picked up as well by the sensitive electronics inside the control box.
      The control box is made of aluminium therefore the magnetic field easily penetrates it.
      To prove that, approach a magnet to the right side of your detector when switched on. 
      Millions of less obvious noise signals are interfering with your detector.  
      We have developed this Shield from the best quality material primarily used in sensitive 
      medical and scientific electronics. After years of studying and testing different materials we have found this one ticks all the boxes. 
      I have revisited the places where I've previously cleaned up and found more gold after installing the shield.
      It is 0.35 mm thick, held firmly around your control box by the armrest and  the new improved version with dual layer shielding on the right side is only 175 g!
      We have tested it on the GPX 5000 with amazing results such as quieter threshold, better GB, resulting in slightly increased depth.
      The shield allows you to increase the Rx gain by a notch or two without compromising the threshold. Use Inverted Response when hunting for big deep nuggets. 
      https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/MAGNETIC-INTERFERENCE-REDUCER-SHIELD-FOR-MINELAB-GOLD-DETECTORS/232594646908?hash=item3627b8a77c:g:8lEAAOSwYGFU0bvu
      I noticed it on Ebay today while I was looking for a cover for my GPX.
      I have noticed I've been able to quieten down my GPX by opening the control box up and scraping some paint away where the shielding touches the casing, on one end they had scraped away paint from one screw point during production, and the other end had no paint scraped away at all by the factory so it's sheilding was basically useless.  By scraping paint away from a few areas on each end of the detector I was able to give the GPX a bit of a noticable quieten down.  I am sure on later models Minelab would of scraped away more paint but as mine is a very early model made in Australia version this wasn't done.

      We just went through a few years on constant releases of new prospecting detectors. And now the flood has subsided, with almost nothing on the horizon.
      There is the “any moment now” Makro Gold Kruzer, running at 61 kHz and waterproof to 15 feet. After that however it gets pretty thin.
      First Texas has new detectors in the works, but nothing rumored that is aimed specifically at prospecting this year, but maybe later. Right now a PI beach detector appears to be up next. Garrett - maybe they are working on it but personally I have given up waiting on a lighter weight ATX. Tesoro - nothing going to happen there obviously.
      Minelab still “owes” us GPZ owners a smaller coil but with Equinox occupying all their efforts....?
      Nok/Mak outside of the Gold Kruzer has been working on a PI for years, but absolutely no hints on it getting any closer to market.
      XP I thought might bring a version of the low cost DPR 600 to first world markets but no sign of it happening.
      And White’s? Who knows. Maybe we will see a repackaged GMT but the shine has worn off of repackaged detectors these days.
      Long story short is it often takes new detectors to stir up activity on forums. For now at least the future is looking pretty quiet. The good news is we can just focus on using what we already have to best effect without being tempted or distracted by new shiny toys!

      Hi Steve:
      Just re-read your "Steve's Guide to Threshold, Autotune..."  It helped a lot.  Thanks.  
      I do have a question though.  I understand V/SAT.  It's about how fast autotune re-adjusts the threshold after encountering some disturbance like a target.  However, I'm unclear on how that relates to Ground Balancing and Tracking.  It sounds like they are the same.  Would you please explain that?
      Thanks

      What are some of the least expensive pi machines? Can used ones be found?

      Squeezed in a few hours this afternoon to complete a neat Pi project, the Pistol Probe. 

      Also want to take the time to thank Gary Storm of Detector Pro for creating the Pistol Probe, Thank you Gary the pistol probe is one powerful pi. 

      And Finnfoto for encouraging me to finish the neat gadget, thanks finnfoto! 

      Well, Here it is the Pistol Probe converted into a pi detector. Yet, Retains the probe usage with adding back the Probe portion.... Was trying to retain the cool Pistol Probe appearance yet be able to shorten it up a little, hacked off the original Probe portion and added a connector. Using a Uniprobe probe stem allowed the project to work, just remove the Probe and connect the 10" 15us pi coil for pi detection.

      Was comparing this project with my HH Pi, both air tested the same and with the GrayGhost headset audio bangs out loud and clear. Only portion I hated was using an 1/8" headphone plug, had too no room for a regular size plug. None the less it may be the perfect solution, small yet effective allowing the GrayGhost headset to plug in. 

      Three ways to use this, mounted on the S-handle, or hip mount inside a pouch or auctally it's small enough to fasten to the outer headset band if one wants to wade deep in water. 

      Tomorrow, Sometime in the afternoon will hit a dry river bed. Should do well since both the Pistol Probe and HH Pi share the same 15us circuitry. 

      Could have chopped it up into a smaller version, but that would destroy the neat Pistol Probe appearance. This was important, Maintain the neat stock appearance. 

      I'll share tomorrows finds, thanks for taking a peek. 

      Paul
