Eqx 800 First Outing With Monster 15x12” Coil Scores A Ko In First Round 2.5 Minutes In.
A friend and I spent a couple days swinging around a couple junk filled ghost towns. I am very familiar with the Xp deus. I had also brought with the new to me Xp ORX. I spent my time swinging both the deus/ORX with the 9 Hf, 9x5Hf and my LF 11x13 coils. I found some good stuff and was really able to put the new ORX to work. I kept the ORX equipped with the 9x5hf coil. Deus with 9Hf coil. Also have my 11x13 on a straight shaft to easily switch to that. These site have been hit hard over the last few years by me and a ton of other people and have seen 3 to 4 large group hunts. Heres a few pics
Hi guys. Here's some finds made with the Eqx 8000 on monday. Was pretty happy with the outcome. One Chinese coin and the Broach was in some fairly hot ground under some rocks and mineralised clay from an old lead throw out heap. Around 8 or so inches roughly. I like the 800 but it really is screaming out for a 10 inch elliptical or similar. Some type of solid coil.
Took the ole Nox 800 for a spin back in same site I have been hunting for the least week or so. Only ran the Wi stream module with the Walkman style headphones. Field 2 speed 5 all used to detect.
I surprised myself big time.
Pulled a for sure 2 silvers, one a cut reale, the other a whole coin Spanish, and I think I actually dug a hammered silver if you can beleive that. All 3 dug about 15 feet in a triangle from one another.
Not all finds videoded.
The first cut Spanish bit I thought I videoed but file got corrupted somehow. Did turn camera back on though and showed the first.
The rest of the Spanish shown in the video.
Nox rocks, I have spent loads of time where these silvers came from. And never did dig one in the past here. With any detector. Granted I dug a fake bit a few days ago down the hills somewhat from where I was today. But this bit thicker as it come from fake Spanish dollar I think.
The bits and coins today extremely thin.
Loving the Nox with the Wi stream module.
Enjoy the video.
Will post a few pics.
I tried to alter lighting so some detail could be seen on these when using iPad to take pics.
The bit chopped in half 1778.
The coin is 1767.
Look closely at the coin I think younsee see some lettering and numbering. Coin is worn badly.
