Nice videos, thanks.  The Equinox smashed it, but I bet the F75 was more comfortable :laugh:

That is why I've kept my F75 as a backup:laugh:

Used my buddies 800 the other day for 4 hours. At first it seemed nose heavy and was starting to get to me, then I realized he had the lower rod extended too far. Shortened it up a notch and it made all the difference in the world.  I probably could have went another notch and still had it far enough in front of my feet to work but it would have cut into the swing width too much for my style.

Set the way I had it the balance felt just as good as an F75 with the added benefit of a little lower weight.

I give Minelab kudos for what is IMO a combination of good mechanical design and intuitive operation.

I talked to a friend yesterday who is one of the best Deus users out there. Many people are using his programs and I know of some accomplished Deus users who he has helped to step up their game. He got an equinox a few weeks ago and the other night talking to him I had to ask how the Equinox stacked up against the Deus. He told me he hasn't had enough time on the Equinox yet but he is very happy with it and thinks after more time on it he will find it's better than the Deus.

The fact that Deus users are even seriously asking that question is a real recommendation for the Nox, given how much more the Deus and its (expensive) coils cost.

      Hi , does anyone know what the difference is between Park 1 and Park 2 modes ? 
      I need a mode that i can use on dry beaches away from the salt wet. But i have to put it into frequency 10 khts to match the Terra .
      Its mainly for looking for coinage in shingle and sand beaches . 
      I need depth and sensitivity .
      Thanks

      Am I doing something wrong? I cant get the volume control + or  -- buttons to work on the ML80 phones. The volume works fine on the detector.

      Streamlining
      At the moment I am a quantity clad hunter. Just looking for more efficient ways of operating. Currently I am using the Equinox 600 with wireless low latency headphones.  I use park mode 1 with 50 tones and leave open VDI numbers 13, and 24 to 38.   My method: I mostly bend at the waist with a little knee flex to dig (no kneeling); most coins are less than 5" deep. I use a Lesche 10" hand trowel and a smaller wider trowel for popping near surface coins. I only bend over once per target. I use a pinpointer after initial coil pinpointing leaving the pinpointer on facing away from the target while digging, dig target, pinpoint again as needed, recover target, turn pinpointer off, fill in hole, pick up tools, then straighten back up, pocket finds, holster tools and give the hole a final step on and start sweeping again. I have gone from using the pinpointer holster to using my back pants pocket as this is faster to draw and replace without having to stop and look to holster. Also started using a quicker holster for my larger trowel and keep my small wider trowel in my other back pocket. I use a small tie on hardware apron with a pocket for finds and a pocket for trash.  My 600 is tethered to my belt with an elastic bungee cord so it hangs and moves with me when I bend and straighten up; it never gets laid on the ground.
      Anyone like to share their method of streamlining to increase efficiency and cut down on redundancy.

      Now that we've all had a bit of time to enjoy the Nox whether that be the 600 or 800.
      Which mode do you think is the best and why, more to the point what do you think the benefits are over the other modes. I prefer park 2 as i find with the right sweep speed there is very little falsing compared to the others especially field 2.

      On Youtube i saw from another forum link that a bloke has found another way to check for bad targets on his 600 . I assume its the same for the 800 .
