Equinox Vs Tarsacci. Does This Equal More Nuggets?

Recommended Posts

Chuck, respectfully I feel the need to say that your theory does not hold water. Take for instance the cost of a CTX at North of $2000. It's pretty much acknowledged the Equinox gets more depth than the CTX. Are you saying that all the people that bought one of those machines got  screwed? And as my esteemed colleague Klunker has pointed out it only takes one good find to blow your math all to hell. But I do admire you for having the balls to post an alternate theory. Good day to you sir!

  I’m said nothing about anyone getting screwed. If the seller is happy and the buyer is happy then all is well.

 All the math I put down was just what it is and that’s bull sh__.

 The thing is the Tar cost 600.00 more than Nox . On that alone the Tar should do better.

 You say the Nox gets more depth than the CTX . If that’s what you say I’d say that’s great. Just tell me how the CTX got in this test when it was between the Nox and Tar.

When we go buy a computer within a short time it’s outdated. Could it be the CTX is outdated by the Nox?

 Goldbrick by me saying that about the CTX I’ve open a can of worms that I may never get the lid back on .

 Goldbrick I wish you the best  and never stop questioning anything I say . I’m a old fart and been detecting for a long time but that don’t always make me right.haha

Redneck, can you post a link? I can not find this conversation.

Redneck, thanks for the link. I appreciate it. While Daniel recommends using a GPX or TDI in hot soil that is not what I am trying to accomplish. I already own both of those machines and will not run them in many areas due to the amount of trash dug because of their lack of discrimination.

Goldbrick,  Daniel has a nox 600 and in his red dirt, the 600 does the best of all the vlf machines he has ever used . Daniel knows his stuff, been detecting for a long time and tells it like it is.

Tarsacci MDT 8000  specifically targeted for wet sand/beach detecting/artifact hunting in bad soil, made by a company specializing in underwater detectors, does not sound like a multiple frequency machine from what I could find: here's a link

Sounds like a highly specialized detector designed for a specific niche purpose, interesting . . .

All the best,

Lanny

This is not one of "those" forums. The goal here is to inform, not paranoia about people defecting to other forums. Post links at will - please - to relevant subjects. A significant amount of my time is spent chasing down and editing posts to provide the links people are not making themselves.

Tarsacci added to the Detector Database....

Thanks for the clarification Steve, much appreciated, as is your open mind to links provided for informational purposes only.

You do a wonderful job of running a fine, welcoming forum.

All the best,

Lanny

      I purchased my Tarsacci in February of 2019. It is # 000029 R1. Does anyone else care to share their information? If you are a salt water hunter I recommend this detector to all. It’s negative side for me is no additional coils are available and the 8” x 11” just seems small out of the water. This is only my opinion.

      I figured I should post this here as I posted the information elsewhere on the forum that's less relevant than here.
      Our extremely innovative Russian friends have managed to make a range of aftermarket coils for the Equinox, they remove the security chip out of your coil, reseal your coil and give you an adapter which then allows you to run aftermarket coils.  They make a range of sizes too.   My pick of the bunch would be the 9.5x5.5!

      That's the range of sizes and pricing in Russian currency.
      You can find out more about it here on these Russian forums, you'll have to use Google translate or something similar to read it.

      And videos from them about the coils
      and lucky last 🙂
      When nobody can do it, the Russians do and they do it well.

      Hi everyone,
      I want make me sure if my program on my Detector is properly set or..
      I own Equinox for 4 weeks and walked lot of km with it (90% of time on field). But I am still little confused about my settings to forest. I tryied with settings: field 1, 5 tone, disc -9 to 0, Rs 4 and iron bias 2. Our woods is pretty clear, so I can get more depth. (I am coin hunter)
      What I read or what I heard is that park 2 is more to depth than field 1..
      But park 2 is more for dirty locations..
      I'm from central Europe and local old silver coins are differently conductive because of their age and and size.
      what would you recommend? Park or field settings?
      I'm still trying to understand it and I'm still learning. I will be glad for your advice, I have not read anything about the forest anywhere in the topic.
      PS: sorry for my english I'm not native speaker 
       
      Thank you

      Which do you think will hit deeper on wet sand?  I'd prefer a TDIBH over a DF but I'm budget limited.

      I share an image of today.
      It is a beach, at low tide, and the sand is not too mineralized.
      I have always used the Beach1 mode, but I have doubts about using Beach2 (or other custom)
      Yes, I know that it is best to test - error, but some of you have a lot of experience, and that is why I would like to hear your comments and why. And if it's another way, I'm all ears.
      Thank you so much guys!
