Well, I thought it was a remarkably honest video coming as it does straight from the manufacturer. Some people don’t like the nail board test for various reasons but it does at least provide a standardized test where few exist. Anyway, I thought Tom did an excellent job with no attempt to sugar coat - well done.

I agree. has anyone done any videos of other detectors using the monte board? Do you ever use the monte board?

There are videos using different detectors using Monte's nail board test (calabash digger, Keith Southern to name of couple) on Youtube.

I use Monte's nail board trying different size and types of coils and how the coils separate iron from a good target. It also gives you an idea of what type of response to expect or listen for when using different detectors, customize programs and settings and coils in a iron infested site. You can use other targets ( buttons, jewelry, bullets etc.) to see how your detector and coil setup responds to those targets.

As Steve H. said it provides a standardized test not 100% full proof (different types of nails, trash, mineralization etc.) that you may encounter out in the field that will mask targets.

.For the 2D nailboard test, the size of the coil has a significant effect on the results ... 11 "I have bad results in the 2D nailbord test" Coils 9 ", and I have less than good results in this test ... In my the 3D-deep separation test, coils Under 9" they have bad results and on the other hand coils 9" and more have good and excellent results in the 3D test .., - here is also the height of the coil above the nails, most of the detectors work well from 0-15,20 cm above the nails, except is Tecnetics G2- 13 "ultimate - the 0-20cm does not produce a positive signal signal, it starts to pass such a 3D test and at a height of 20-25cm above the nails with a very high separation is good for detection in winter ... when it's snow-...Detectors in my 2D naiboard test and 3D test: Whites SpectraV3 -4x6" ,6x9"eclipse,8x6 "sef, 10"dd whites,12x10"sef,6x10" mars sniper coil,,...Teknetics G2 - 3.5x 6.5" nel snake ,11"dd ,13"ultimate coil,..Golden mask coin killer 15khz-5"spider,9"spider coil,.... Rutus Optima- V.2-16 khz DD23CM, DD29cm coil, rutus Argo V.3 6.6khz..- DD29 cm coil,....                                                            If you are testing the detectors in the nailbord test, you will notice that almost all detectors have the problem of passing 4th in coin position number 2 ... detectors with fast reset recovery delay do not keep, Whites Spectra V3 with recovery delay setting 45 or more it goes very all right.

      As said I like both the Sport and the Nox face . The great thing about them as you hunt you can really look at the face of each and know what you have notched out . What makes the Nox even better over the Sport is you can notch out one number at a time .
       Oh I know the Nox has so many fine qualities over the Sport it will never have but like the Nox it has a pretty face .
       I don’t know why but a pretty face always tugs at my heart strings and a detector is no different.

      I am very impressed with the High trash setting, and am trying to figure out how it is weighted
      you would think it had low sensitivity and high discrimination therefore would lead to less dept and more iron masking in thick iron areas at homesites
      but it actually performs to the contrary of my expectations.
      it goes very deep up to 12 inches and the discrimation level dose not interfere with separating iron from small non ferrous items
      I was using my equinox in all metal mode and my friend had his MX Sport high trash mode, we  where at a colonial homesite, he has getting mixed signal of iron and a high tone and number
      he dug 5 big hand made square nails up to 6", and was still getting the good signal , when i cam over with the equinox in multi frequency  all I was getting was iron, minus signals, with a flash of 11
      but no enough to want to dig, and I predicted it was probably a false from a bent nail
      he kept going and eventually t 10" deep amongst more nails he pulled a penny
      My equinox never sensed this coin, yet high trash on single frequency spotted it at the onset and stuck to it like glue until it was finally retrieved.
      I would love to know the set up and weighting behind this mode some i could apply some to my equinox.

      This specification comparison chart is derived from the White's MX7 Owner's Manual and the White's MX Sport Owner's Manual. Everything is pretty straight forward. The asterisks note that the MX7 weight with batteries is derived from the manual. The MX Sport manual is unclear on whether batteries are included in the weight and my personally weighing the MX Sport with batteries suggests the answer is no. The MX Sport with batteries weighs 4.23 lbs. as weighed on my postal scales. I can't vouch for the MX7 weight as listed in the manual. Current internet price for MX Sport is $749.00 and MX7 $549.00
      I think it is fair to say looking at the specifications that this is a MX Sport in a lighter weight, better balanced and less expensive package. The only real operational difference is the MX Sport comes with a 10" round DD epoxy filled coil and the MX7 a 9.5" round lightweight concentric. This would make the MX Sport out of the box better configured for water hunting and severe mineralization. The MX7 is better configured for park and other dry land detecting in mild to moderate mineralization. Both units can use the same coils.

      Both the MX Sport and the Equinox 800 are waterproof and that’s about where the two are alike ends.
       Now if we want to put the detectors that have the option to run in different frequencies then how would you place them in price? I speaking about the ones that have other frequencies but still run only one at a time .
       Now remember the Equinox is at the top with a price of 899.00 and a true multi frequency.
        Would you want to slip it in between the Sport and the Equinox in price? Maybe we could lower the price of the Sport and place the ones we’ve been talking about in it’s spot..
       Just thinking out loud but everyone has their own opinion.
