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.

I think you just have to buy an MX Sport!?

Weighting is a term Minelab used with the Equinox to refer to which multiple frequencies are used and how they are "mixed" together in the modes. Since the MX Sport is a single frequency detector the term does not apply. There are all sorts of reasons a detector might hit a target that another misses, but without having both detectors on hand with quite a bit of time spent over the undug target trying various settings on the machines it is impossible to tell where the difference would be.

Well. Just talking Nox here. You move dirt you may or may not hear a target buried.  Nox is extraordinary detector.  One must think about speed setting, detect mode, sensitivty when detecting.  

A question here.

Can Nox be used in a site using one set of settings and or one detect mode and hunt hard using and deem site dead?

A big fat NO.  User neeeds to hunt more withndiffer t settings and detect modes.  Base this on what targets are possibly in the area, soil mineralization, and how dense iron is on one’s site.

      What kind of batteries ya'll use? I used to buy nothing but Duracell rechargeable, then in the last year I couldn't find any. I just bought some Rayovac with a charger, but they don't seem to hold a charge. I charged them, put them in, they showed full charge as I hunted for about an hour, then the next day only see two dots on the power gauge. I recharged them hoping they needed a break in, but they did the same thing. Now I have used them for 3 days, with only two dots showing, they don't seem to be going any lower, but I don't trust them. I just did a search and found a bunch of Duracells, I might of been looking for the same charger I used to have, that died, and couldn't find it. I hate to go spend more on a different brand...I didn't notice until now, the rechargeable's are 1.2 volt, whereas the regular are 1.5 volt, would that make a difference?
       
       I don't want a battery pack, at least not a NiCad...

      Well I received my December 2017 mag from Lost Treasure today and just on the inside of the first page is the new MX 7. This has to be the same detector that Tom has been swinging around with a orange ring around the face. White's is offering you a look at the detector by way of a video on their site.
      The only thing said is a test was done with a 8.5 gram 14K gold ring at 14 inches saying gonna need a bigger shovel. I guess to find out more we all need to look at White's video on this detector.

      Tom from White’s made a statement that the  color of the MX 7 had to do with the day it would hit the market.
      All know that we see orange everywhere on Halloween. Now with that said will it hold true on the hint that Tom drop.
      Maybe it could be what Halloween is all about and that’s Trick or Treat.
      Intil tomorrow when we’ll all know.
