We’ve been asking for a closed loop elliptical coil like the GM1000 6" x 10" coil since the Equinox and it’s coils were announced.

Minelab make it happen!  Not only would I be the first one in line to order it, but I can pretty much guarantee it’ll be your most ordered optional Equinox coil.  Relic hunters and prospectors alike will have to have this coil.  Just ensure it’s as deep, with equal or better separation capabilities as the stock 11” DD coil.

I think they would also see quite a few people hop off the fence and purchase an equinox if they were to make a 6 x 10 coil, I am one of those people, i have no doubt that the equinox is a great machine and that it can find gold without the "gold" style/spec coil however i am in no hurry to buy anything and am waiting to see if they will release it before jumping into the equinox. 

I cant see it doing any bad things to the GM sales as it is an entirely different prospect and sits at a completely different price point, if anything it will be better for minelab as it will be easier to walk people up the range from the GM ($1k) to a higher value detector in the equinox + extra coil (1.5k) - for an extra $500 you get a high spec coin/relic machine + a high spec Gold VLF. No brainer!

I like the size and shape of a 6"x10" less eccentric than the 5x10 and keep more depth. All I can say is the equinox is worthy of a large assortment of coils, and that includes a 10" concentric. In my opinion they will all sell good, and ultimately there will be a very large number of equinoxes out there so a good business move by Minelab to offer such an assortment.

I would buy a 6x10 for sure..  Ultimately I would like to see a very thin epoxy filled solid elliptical for the Equinox. The hollow ones kind of bug me.. Just a personal pet peeve..  Either way, no elliptical for the Equinox at all would be a crime..

not interested in the 6 or big coil.....I'll buy the 6x10 as soon as it's available!

I will second that exact thought :biggrin:

Relic and nugget hunters would buy that coil in a heartbeat- me included.

Closed design would make the coil defintily more user friendly overall.

Minelab should make pronto.  A no-brainer.

Besides I think the Equinox platform is not getting a fair shake by some- due to coil sizes offered.

I ordered a 6 "coil, but the 6X9-10" coil is the best compromise of the excellent sensitivity of very good depth,better separation and weight coil ...

It's a no-brainer indeed, I'd much rather have it then the 6" coil any day of the week.

      Every 3rd Friday of the month the metal detecting club I belong to allows us to display our 'finds of the month' as a competition.  The categories are listed on the white board below my display.  This month my display number was 19.  I had an entry for each category this month.  All of the items were found with the 800 using the 11" coil.  (You can see the club info and pictures of past finds here: http://prospectorsclub.org/  )
      I've put in a few hours over the last week because conditions were good.  What I didn't show were the coins that I found which was about $50.  So I dug a lot of holes when you add in the trash!
      About 3 nights ago I went out on a low tide and was not finding much on my first beach.  I was getting ready to go and I found a piece of micro jewelry.  I didn't really want to leave so I began a SLOW grid of the area.  Just about every target started out as a negative number.  I kept gridding and found another micro piece as one of the studs, nothing very exciting but a target.  I locked into the slow pattern at the 'bottom of the hill' which is the end of the steep part of a beach slant.  I ended up with 5-6 small pieces and was satisfied with that.
      Sometimes after I grid I look at the holes I've dug and consider the depth of the targets and extend that line or cross over where I've been before.  One of these times I extended the grid and came back to the pattern and I heard a 17.  Well, the Nox does 13, 20,21,30,31 and 15s quite often so 17 was a digger in all metal.  I took my normal couple of scoops and the target was still there.  This was the deepest target in the grid.  I looked in the scoop after about 9 inches and a 10k 6g ring was shinning at me in the moonlight.  This was a shock.  It was out of place and it didn't sound like that type of target.
      The ring is pretty solid.  I could not tell from the sound.  One of my criticisms of the 800 is that it doesn't make heavier, more massive items louder.  Larger items like aluminium cans detect over a much larger area but I don't get a sense of 'density' from the audio target signal.
      So, I guess the 17 is because the gold has more copper or silver to make it the 10k.  It is a nice class ring.  I'm still trying to find the owner.
      The other items in the picture all have a story too including the two silver dimes and two silver chains.  I'll try to remember them if you ask me.

      Hello all..... some of you guys have been asking for 9'' and 13'' coils for the Kruzer...it is done.... we have developed these and will start shipping them at the same time with the Anfibio series.
      Both coils are compatible with the Anfibio and Kruzers. 
      Thank you!

      I was ground balancing in single frequencies with my Nox 800 the other day and as you would expect the ground balance numbers change depending on the frequncy used so i wonder if we can alter the the 'weighting' of a program by doing a ground balance in the opposite frequency to the 'weighting' preset eg Field 2 is 'weighted' towards the higher frequencies so if we did a ground balance in 5kHz and then switched to multi would the 'weighting' have changed to any degree? would the Field 2 program now favour a wider range of conductors? would doing this offer any benefits ? i dont know but i will be trying to find out this weekend any thoughts on this ?

      Last night after work i went to the beach for 9pm . It was dark and difficult to see much but i could tell that the normal areas i search were to built up to find much so i went East and saw that it was a lot better . though still built up. My Nox was updated last week and i wanted to see what it was like .There was no WIFI or EMI about and the machine was stable .
      I didn't expect much and the Summer crowds have gone , but if the beach had ripped a bit that might produce some older stuff . 
      From the start i started to find coinage and for the entire "almost" 1.5 miles i found coinage till 2am when i finished to get the Bus home .
      There were no rings about as i was on the dry and quite high up the beach , though below high tide mark. None of the targets were very deep , at most 6 inches . But the targets were more stable and clearer . 
      By the time i finished the hunt i had found exactly £72.00p in spendable coinage and a few foreign coins and 7 fishing weights . 
      My next hunt will be Saturday night for high tide till 5am when out .
      I think the Nox is working better but when i put my phone on and searched late in the night i found it still suffers WIFI interference , i turned it off and it cleared . I dont use the boxed headphones but use Gray Ghosts with an adapter plugged into the WM08 .
      The second picture is the coinage straight out of the finds pouch.

      The first tests of the fitting rooms are already being published. I'm looking forward to it going on sale
