Folks Desiring Accessories For Equinox

Recommended Posts

A little tid bit here.

Folks desiring accessories for Equinox, should consider getting with dealer and letting them know. If not already done.
It is possible the accessories could be limited in quantities at first like the detector models are currently.  So get in head of line is what I am saying.

Cheers.

High desire for detector models likely= high desire for accessories.

That was one of the first thing I said to my dealer but most know about that as much as I do.Right now I’d be happy just to get the detector. I’d be running over with joy if Minelab would include the 6” coil with my Equinox.

Minelab if you read this I’d eat humble pie if you could do this for me.

I understand.

One reason for my posting what I did.

Folks have eyes on eye candy (detector).  And forget about accessories they need.

How does this sound.  Could it be possible for a person to get accessories before they get detector?? Far fetched ?  Don't think so.

Did that with my dealer already.  Let him know that I wanted to be on the 6” coil and WP headphones “waiting list”.  The whole accessory issue is the next firestorm on the horizon.  While I don’t think ML underestimated demand for the EQ itself, I am thinking they may be underestimating demand for the accessories and that could well turn into something that makes the EQ detector roll out seem like a walk in a coin and jewelry infested park. Hope I am dead wrong.

How does a dealer take orders for items that have no prices and no projected availability dates?

he/she cant per se but if you have a good relationship with your dealer you can tell them I want the first 6",15" coils with 2 extra lower rods as soon as they are available.

He don’t but it’s just wishful thinking!

Thanks for the insight. That’s about all it is right now, but at least my dealer knows it and can throw me a bone when it finally becomes reality.

I’m not knocking you in any way. I know myself I wanted that small coil the same time I got my Equinox but that’s not to be.

Just like I wish I’d been born rich instead of so good looking but that’s life. You got to live with what you’re handed. 

That’s not even funny!

The Best

      After a bit of a drought of finding cool coins with the Equinox, I found another V nickel detecting in the neighbors parking strip in between thunderstorms.  It was pretty worn and pitted, and not of any numismatic value, so I cleaned it up a bit.

      I find myself waiting again for something new they call Apex .
       I had been thinking about buying the Vanquish 540 pro pack but about the time I was going to pull the trigger on it another toy pops up. The trouble is I can’t have it today and not even tomorrow. Just like always I find myself in line waiting on something or someone.
       Well I’m not standing in line for nothing anymore.
       I’ve had a Nox 800 but sold it and I’m still kicking my butt for doing that . I had a detector that out shined all others and like said stupid sold it.
       Enough is enough so I called Rob and ordered a Nox 800 , 6” coil with a extra lower shaft and a MI 6 XP Pinpointer for my ORX .
       I ordered this just this past Monday and by 6 the next morning the check was in the mail. 
      I wish all of you the best that’s waiting on the Apex. Just mark me off that waiting list . Chuck

      I was hunting at the beach yesterday and did my usual "dial it in" routine...adjusting F2, Recovery and Sensitivity using my test sticks to optimize my EQX 800 performance for that particular beach.

      As I hunted, I got a strong tone of a high conductor and started to dig and dig and dig. I couldn't see or find the target but I knew it was still there...somewhere...the EQX said it was!

      I finally narrowed it down to a certain pile of sand from the ever growing hole. Still couldn't see it but it was there among the brown sand...somewhere. Finally resorted to my Pro-Find 35 pinpointer. It rang up nicely but I still couldn't see this high conductor! I started to test small hand fulls at a time and finally...finally I saw a minuscule piece of wire on the edge of my hand. Could this be what all the fuss was about? YES. I measured the depth of the hole with the Pro- Find 35 and saw that it was approximately 8 inches!

      I brought the wire home specifically to post this story about the importance of adjusting your detector to meet the conditions. When we change beaches, I "dialed in" my EQX again for that new beach and had to change the settings from that first beach where my EQX sniffed out that piece of wire. Conditions change and so must your settings....one size DOES NOT FIT ALL.

      Wanted to see who was using the Equinox for prospecting and if you are, woudl you be willing to share settings and some find photos for the new Equinox Handbook that is getting ready to ship to the printer . . . will send a copy of the book when they come in if we can use them in the book.
      Send prospecting find photos or settings to asabisch@att.net
      Thanks in advance,,

      Definitely copper, and in pretty good shape.  About 5 inches down, showed strong 24 -26 in all sweep directions. Nox 800.  Pretty stoked!
