Sometimes, Little Things Can Totally Brighten Your Day!

Recommended Posts

Big Brown Truck made my day yesterday.  Much earlier than expected delivery from my dealer!

Silly how some little things can make what was a trying day turn into dancing in the living room!  😆

Going out this afternoon to deflower the coil!

Woohoo...!

I love the larger coil. Feels fairly lightweight. Good luck with it!

Happy dancing is what one would expect from an elf...

I said I would not but I might have to get a big coil...

good luck

Fred since I have put on the big coil, I have not even thought about taking it off. It works.

I might go back to the stock coil if I was gold detecting, but for everything else, the 15" coil is excellent.

fwiw...

thanks, Flak

your opinion could make me a buyer rather than a thinker.

Flakmagnet is right, the big coil has barely left my Nox since I got it other than when I go prospecting although it's not too shabby on small gold either, not too far behind the 11" which again isn't too far behind the 6"

For nostalgia's sake I put the 11" back on my Nox yesterday and went for a walk to the river behind my house before the heat of the day kicked in with some morning fog and went for a hunt in an area where finds are very few and far between, a very unpopulated area along the riverside and pulled up a very old NZ penny, it's in too bad condition to make out it's date but I was very surprised to find a coin here as so rarely do people go here that the chances of losing one are so slim.  I can only guess it was a fly fisherman lost it long before I was born.

I am certain you'll love your coil and hope my pictures inspire you go out and get some great finds with it to break it in 🙂

Take it to the beach and scoop up a nice 1/3 oz gold ring.  We can dream right..  Have fun with it.

      Hi Folks
      I have been busy making quite a few finds recently. After more than a year with the Equinox, it continues to impress me with it's capabilities.
      Some of my recent finds include some early 1630's Kettle Points and Turtle Effigy, Spanish Silver, KG's and more. I even have had it scuba diving. Unfortunately I wasn't impressed with the volume with the Grey Ghost headphones. I have a new pair of Tony Eisenhower headphones ready to try out with the hopes that the volume is better. We shall see.
      HH Everyone...

      In a previous post of mine, I made the case for using 3 tones based on Low, Medium and High conductive targets; a system I routinely use in hunting our Florida beaches.  It's simple, effective and gives me the information I really need.
      The videos below however, make a strong case for 2 tones and the "Dig it All" approach when using the Equinox series detectors.   Why?  As you'll see in those videos, the tested targets span the VDI spectrum based on metallurgical composition, shape and size. Granted, these are nothing more than air tests which aren't affected by depth, moisture or ground mineralization but they at least provide some indication as to how a variety of targets range the VDI scale based on their individual characteristics.
      If using 2 tones, I would personally set the tone breaks at -9 to 0 using tone pitch 1 indicating probable junk and the second tone break at 1 thru 40 using tone pitch 25.
      If I were interested only in a more detailed target description, I would lean heavily toward the CTX 3030.  However, in the type of beach hunting I do, I favor the Multi IQ, faster processor, enhanced sensitivity and weight of the EQX over the CTX...just my personal preference or as I always say, "Just the view from my foxhole."

      Need help. My equinox 600 doesn't change discrimination patterns when I switch detect modes. I am always in all metal mode. My boyfriend has the same machine and his changes with each mode...he doesn't know why mine does not. I can't figure it out...help please.

      I was having a relatively slow morning detecting at La Jolla Shores Beach in San Diego today, about $1 in clad and a euro coin when a young woman came up asking for help finding a ring. She was frantic and her husband was second guessing, saying it must be at home and asking when was the last time she saw it? She kept insisting it was here right here, next to the seawall. With just a couple swipes of my Equinox 800/15" coil I had it in the scoop. She was ecstatic and gave me a big hug. I've always dreamt of finding a big expensive engagement ring whilst detecting. I've gotten a few gold bands but nothing like this! I obviously didn't get to keep it, but it seemed to bring some good karma to the day and I found two large silver rings shortly afterward. She insisted on getting my info and address so I might be getting a reward or thank you letter later. Here's a couple pics of the expensive ring, the happy owner and the two silvers I got afterward.

      Been out awhile end of year at school has kept me busy. 
      Thought it would be interesting to hear everyone’s favorite go to.
      I primarily hit coal mining ghost towns and run 
      Nox 600 
      Field 1 and 2 all metal 50 tone
      sens 16-20
      recovery 3 
      IB-0
      I try new setups but end up back to where I started, some days are better than others.
      hope everyone is getting out and enjoying!
