  1. I am doing well! The Equinox does work good here in the wet sand and the ocean.
  2. Steve, you are so right. Right now I have readjusted my setting due to the latest update. And I can now get a little more depth detecting in the ocean water here in Hawaii.
  3. LE.JAG, will both coils be available to buy when the AQua starts shipping later this year? In my case, I do want both sizes. I have an area that is very rocky that has produce my biggest diamond rings. And the 8 inch coil would be best coil for this area.
  4. The Gold Monster does not work on wet sand.
  5. I have a bad hearing problem and I have tried 5 different brand waterproof headphones made for the Equinox. Tony's headphones are the best by far. If you buy another headphones that are not made by Tony you are just wasting time and money. Set the Equinox in the 5 tones mode and adjust the tone to 13 for the most volume.
  6. You have to remember that Eric Foster was the person that invented the PI technology. Ones something is invented, other people will find ways to make it better. Having use the Aquastar for a number of years. I can not wait to have a Manta to use.
  7. Different people can have different types of hearing lost. I have tried almost every waterproof headphones available for the Equinox. Tony Eisenhower's head phones are the best for my use. They have more volume then the other headphones. I just ordered a 2nd set so I have a set of Tony Eisenhower's head phones on both of my Equinoxes.
  8. Steve, can you tell us now the total weight your complete shaft and lower rod? And compare that weight to the stock complete shaft and lower rod? Mahalo, Terry
  9. Steve, When you get ready to start selling your Equinox Complete Carbon-Fiber Shaft. Please put my name on your list of buyers. Terry
  10. I have used my big 15 inch coil twice now and this coil will remain on my Equinox 800 from now on. Minelab finally has figured out how to make a big lite weight coil. It hits targets harder then the 11 inch coil does. Therefore targets are deeper then I expect them to be. So far in 6 hours of hunting, I have 4 rings but the only good one is a thin silver toe ring. I so miss the days when you could dig 10 rings over a period of a time and 9 would be either gold or platinum.
  11. I wish we could chose the audio output tones for people like me that have a bad hearing problem in the two Gold modes.
  12. My dealer received my 15x12 inch coil yesterday in Hawaii.
  13. I live in Hawaii and my local dealer received an e-mail yesterday that Minelab is shipping my 15x12 inch coil today!
  14. On my newest Equinox, I had no problems installing the update. But on my original Equinox, it kept saying that it did not recognize it. I then used a rubber eraser to clean the 4 contacts on the control pod. Problem solved. I did a little air testing and my newest unit is now more stable with possible more depth too.
  15. Tboykin, you are right that PI coils need to be hard wired directly to the circuit board to reduce the total resistance. So that you get greater depth. Gold does not float in the ocean.
