  1. have you tried to mount it on etrac instead of the original coil pro? probably can offer it more depth ... let me know
  2. guys for several months I'm using my minelab etrac with white coil of the old explorer xs, incredible but true, the depth has increased compared to the standard pro coil, there is a real increase of about 2 inches! has any of you tried this?

    Bayard, I'm sorry if I try to advise you, you can try it with your etrac, to increase reactivity in trash areas or with metal waste. Work in All-metal with a completely white screen, use "fast" but remove the "deep" mode, set the sensitivity in manual at 20-25 max, the "gain" at 20 max and above all put in 4 tones (not multitone) with treshold pich at 18, brush slowly and separate the sounds .. if the other settings are correct, I think there will be no target left behind for equinox! once you have cleaned in the first 20 cm, try to review the area by increasing the gain from time to time let me know how it will go and what will remain for equinox or other vlf .. of course for surfaces cleaned from metal waste the settings are higher

    actually Steve you're right !! I write too much! I love my etrac and I defend it

    Dear guys, I'm sorry for many that contradict me, but Minelab remains in first place for its performance in medium and high mineralization environments, and I think that the equinox like any product Minelab will have its excellent performance, I have not doubt, Minelab has never made a mistake, especially in recent years!

    Excuse me Steve, maybe you can misunderstand what I want to write .. for me it is difficult to explain with google translator .. I just want to say that many say that equinox is better and sends etrac in the cellar, I do not think .. etrac is part of a different project, the fbs. has given and continues to give excellent results, the vlf technology has reached its peak. I do not know if I explain myself .. sorry if anyone has misunderstood .. the fact remains that many have etrac and still use it badly, here in my areas many have sold it for Makro multikruzer or deus or other models, but I by their side I simply saw that they did not know how to program and use their etrac to the fullest. that's all.

    I can probably be wrong about equinox, as I also read that it has 5 simultaneous frequencies. This can also make a difference on mineralized soils. Unfortunately I had hundreds of metal detectors of the best, but these latest models like Equinox, Makro Multikruzer or Nokta Impact have not had the chance to try them. but the fact remains that if well used etrac can find most of the signals in all conditions. I would never sell my etrac for other vlf.

    the Multitone mode, however, has its advantages compared to the 4 tones for other types of research ... then we want to talk about "Neutral" or "Difficult"? of "Fast" or "Deep" ?? etc ... etc ... many users leave the factory settings or make a program and use it without changing the settings for each type of research, how can you expect to have the best performances ?? this was the biggest mistake made by White's! and keep doing it for many years !! its detectors are too difficult to use and have too many sub-functions, menus, etc. .. but who can ever be able to make the most of it? so it will go like a mid-range detector and is practically useless. The etrac is much faster to program and has few basic parameters, but the ones it has must be rightly set

    a trivial example on etrac ... if you want better sounds and more speed you can switch from Multitone to 4 tones, it gets faster and acquires the sounds of its predecessors explorer, but it stays faster with the processor increased compared to explorer! in fact, many users have complained about the ugly sounds emitted by etrac compared to previous explorer models, in fact many have sold etrac to buy back explorer xs or explorer if, for me the two best models in the explorer series ... but as I wrote just switch from Multi to 4 tones to get back the sounds so loved .. this is an example of the most trivial, but makes the difference, since the metal detector also becomes faster and more responsive than Multitoni! There are few settings on etrac, which must be set according to the type of search, the type of target and especially the type of terrain, this is essential to better appreciate the technology fbs etrac! the equinox already has the largest settings made by the factory, it is more a "turn on and go" and then the most beginners will see an immediate advantage compared to etrac ... but who is using etrac ??

    with what I wrote, I do not want to say that equinox is not a good car, indeed, it is one of the best detectors ever made. It has many advantages over the ETC, such as waterproofing, lower weight, integrated wireless headsets and more responsiveness ... but it will not find more than etrac. except if the user of etrac is not expert in his

    I'm sorry guys, but I think many e-trac users are wrong with the settings. if programmed well in every subfunction the e-trac will reveal every type of target and material. impossible to think that a VLF can beat etrac fbs, especially in medium and highly mineralized soils. now the vlf have reached their peak, e-trac is more than a vlf .. is more similar to Gpx even if not pulse induction. Equinox will be one of the best single-frequency or multiple detectors, but it will never beat e-trac. why the minelab writes: "the equinox beats every single frequency vlf on today's market!" but attention, to "single frequency"! not fbs tecnology! only on the low mineralization grounds equinox will have all the advantages, but as soon as the mineralization rises, things change! even Chales Garrett years ago advertised his Garrett 2500GTI as a single frequency vlf deeper than any FBS or multifrequency, indeed this is true and provable simply in air tests. but in the ground with minerals the situation is reversed above all in disc mode! I had hundreds of metal detectors of all prices and made various tests on my Italian lands, beware, in Italy the land has many more minerals than in America or England. especially in my Italian areas but FBS, if used well, remains at the top of the vlf ranking. obviously the GPX pulse series is a separate category

    Obviously if you already have a CTX, I understand why you want to sell the E-trac. E-trac and CTX are very similar .. sorry for my comments ..

    Brian, no doubt the recovery of your equinox will be better than on etrac, but the recovery does not think it's all. undoubtedly speed is important in some situations, but the penetration of the dacac in all terrains even the most difficult is unsurpassed. if you look at recovery, I think then that a deus or a fisher f19 or a Makro multikruzer is much better than that of equinox. I repeat, I have never tried a nox, but from what they told me various friends and videos on the net, these are mine

    sorry guys, but selling an E-trac for an Equinox 800 seems absurd. I am a happy owner of an E-trac and I have never tried the new Equinox, but I do not think this last model is better than e-trac, even the highest price of etrac should make me understand ... I would never sell the my fantastic E-trac! why E-trac has higher price than Equinox? the minelab knows what it sells ...
