    Just registered but have been browsing these forums for quite a while and it has helped me a lot. Only started detecting a year ago with a Garrett Euroace and I've really enjoyed my new hobby. Just recently decided to upgrade and I've ordered an Equinox 800. I'm looking forward to it arriving and then putting into practice what I've learned here. Many thanks for all the helpful information that you've all took the time to post.

    Hi all, I'm Ray in California. Just got interested in doing prospecting for recreation and enjoying the great outdoors. Not expecting to get rich, just thought it would be really cool for my wife and i to find some gold nuggets while we are camping anywhere near possible gold country. Looks like i found the right place with like minded folks that know a lot more than i do about it. I bought a starter pan kit and practiced a little on our last trip to Sequoia. Still have to master that, but i started thinking my chances would be better using a detector to narrow my digging areas. Happy Hunting!

    Hi From Australia

    Hi steve and other members. I just joined this forum and would like to introduce myself. My name is Dale I live and prospect in Australia. I have been prospecting for 16 years and have been a full time prospector for the last 6 years. I also love treasure hunting and go to europe every second year to look for ancient coins and treasure, and also enjoy searching for treasure in Australia although there are no pre euopean settlement metallic artifacts. I look forward to sharing my experience's with the members of this forum. Best regards Gold Hound Dale

    Hello From Austria

    Hello, i am from Austria (Europe) my name is Siegfried and i am 42 years old (sorry form y English) . Since 4 weeks i own the Equinox800 an 600, i hunt together wiht my son he ist 14 years old. We love the Equinox it is a first rate detector for us, we hunt mainly for coins. Findings from last week. Steve it is a great forum! Regards Siegfried
  8. My first post after reading this fine forum's Nox thread a while.I've been an FBS user for over a decade with an Explorer II and a CTX,but at 68 I had to find a lighter unit for my shoulders sake.Got my 600 on Sat.,charged it and paired up my new avantree wireless and Sun. I went out to NYC park that has been a silver mine.I have found 569 silver coins here and my buds hundreds more since we have stumbled on to this park in 2009 however the silver has been drying up and my last 5 hunts have been skunks.I kept 600 settings in default park 1,only changing to 50 tone.My initial impression is it's a pleasure to swing such a light machine and i could go all day with no pain.It is really fast and being familiar with how numbers can bounce on Minelabs,I was able to call every coin before I dug it as a penny,dime,quarter.No deepies that I had missed before but I took it to the trashiest sites there( and NYC parks are the worst),I spot that I have pounded even with my 6" CTX coil,I managed to pop out a 47 Rosie(this a very eroded spot) at 1" and 08 Barber dime at 4"So far so good with the Nox.I will try other pounded parks in future hunts and see how it does but for $600 this thing seems like a real bargain.HH
  9. New to this site and like what I've read and how folks respond to one another. Bought my first machine at 13 in 1973 from Roy Lagal with steer sale money. It was a Garrett Ghostowner beep and dig with a strength & battery test meter. I found enough silver to buy my second machine in 81', a Garrett Deepseeker ADS, I still own the Ghostowner. Didn't detect from 83' to 2013 and boy don't I regret it. Fewer restrictions and I was East of the Mississippi 8+ of those yrs from 83-91. In 2008, after 26yrs in the Army & Coast Guard, I retired and 5 yrs later opened a box containing my Ghostowner. The new technology after 40 yrs and this thing called a pinpointer is amazing. It's been a blast rediscovering our hobby for the past 4+ yrs. I met Tiftaaft at a club hunt last year and even though we live a few hours away from each other we try to hunt together a couple times per month. Look fwd to learning my newest Minelab (800) which should be here Monday or Tues. May you find time to enjoy our hobby and dig or scoop a little silver and gold along the way.

    I have been detecting for over 30 years. Started out with a Whites 3000-D & after using multiple Whites products, I steered towards Minelab & they has been in my arsenal ever since. I have been a long time Minelab user, from the Explorer, E-Trac, CTX & soon to be the Equinox, just waiting for my order to be shipped). It will be real enjoyable not to have to use a harness like I did with the CTX. I noticed when I was looking for a more detailed explanation/answer about a detectors settings, how, what, where, when, why, or just general knowledge, I always seemed to end up on this site. Don't know why it took so long to join, but here I am & I hope I can contribute in the future. Happy Hunting Don

    New To Forum

    New to the site! Like what I see and read. Hope to get out more with my Nox which replaced my X-Terra 705. Being a California transplant to Oregon recently will require loads more outings to get a handle on all the new for me reg's and permits these Oregon coastal and inland counties require for hunting. Only have about six hours on my Nox now so haven't tried to do much fiddling with the settings as of now. Still learning the basics with this new monster. Just an awesome site here Steve!

    Newbie From Australia

    G'day fellas and ladies. Glad to join another informative group. I'm from Victoria and have been detecting since October 2017. Still clueless really. I have decided recently that I need to expand mu hunt for the elusive yellow metal. I want to learn to chase the gold by panning and trace it to a lead or source. Just detecting isn't cutting the mustard. I've had a dry spell now since Australia Day. In total since Ive began I have found just shy of half an ounce. But last 6 or 7 trips up to the GT have yielded nada. Thanks for letting me in to this group. Good luck in ya hunts and may the gold gods shine favourably upon you

    Glad To Be Here

    Hi everyone, I'm glad to be here and happy to see a forum where people are as excited about the Equinox as I am. I'm mainly a Minelab guy, and inching closer to detecting 50 years. Not quite there yet Mine is on order and I have plans for an exciting spring season with it. Looking forward to seeing what others think of the machine, when theirs arrives. HH

  18. I know I have said so on the tail end of a few posts. But just like to be a bit more official. I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas & a prosperous New Year & 2018 sees you getting your share of the precious yellow metal.

    New Guy From Canada

    So. This Equinox business might finally be the machine I’ve been waiting for :). Our Canadian coins actually seem to struggle with many machines due to the materials they are made of. And most water machines are geared for salt. The Equinox might be the nice combo for a Tigetshark and whatever land machine I have at the time. Glad to have found this forum. I really only lurk one other decent site that is helpful and full of objectivity. I love water hunting. And off the beaten path hunting. I’m kind of excited about this machine. I’ve also come to realize Steve is a smart guy. There are a few out there and Steve, you’re one. Do I smell a book on the horizon? Some people even had CTX boot camps. I might travel for an Equinox boot camp. :). Thanks.
