  1. It's amazing how quickly one can pay for a dector with shallow water finds. I study The Markets a bit and several Billionares are predicting silver at $100, gold at $3,000 and Bitcoin $220,000 this year! Minelab Excaliburs have always found the most big gold and platinum for me in the sea, in the least time on treasure hunting vacations. But in some conditions the Excal meets it's match (like in black sand) and over the years I have tried every waterproof machine old and new, looking for something to either beat or partner with the Excalibur. The 3030 can't, nor the Equinox, BH TDI or ATX.
  2. Supposedly I was on the list for a Limited, but there must not have been enough machines to go around? At this point I have lost total interest in experimenting with the Limited. However when/if the revised model is released, as a traveling shallow water treasure hunter, I'm all in! For what it's worth: We currently have the Impulse Limited which does have a waitlist. The second revision of this model is scheduled for release in April of this year. That is all the information they’ve provided to me at this point. Regards. ARTURO BARRIENTOS Sales Sup
  3. Hoping I got on the list for an AQ Limited as I inquired with Rick. If not I can wait for the final production. Perhaps some of you PI guys can chime in. Obviously the Impulse depths on gold rings is fantastic and like many here can envision the potential. I do not know how the FCC regulates detectors, but was wondering about the early Whites TDI Pro. I'm told by someone very knowledgeable the TDI Pro hits gold rings 20 inches easy. Whatever the depth it's impressive. I do not know why Whites stopped TDI Pro production- perhaps design Rights? Then Whites produced the SL and later the T
  4. Took a chance and bought these waterproof Equinox headphones off EEEE Bay for a fast approaching Caribbean shallow water hunt. They're from Hungary! I even wondered if I would get them in time as the estimated shipping delivery date was more than 2 weeks! All the ML retailers I contacted keep telling me 4 weeks for ML waterproof phones and it seems it was 4 weeks 4 weeks ago. I'm also told the GG phones will be out soon too. But I needed wp phones for my trip now and to my surprise they were delivered in 2 days! Amazing and I will test them later. At least I can now take an Equinox on m
  5. Well that didn't last long! I would still watch their site as they may get more available/ in. I tried sharing and can't believe I snagged one there!
  6. My dealer friend discovered his allotment of Equinox detectors was far less than he thought and now my 2 800s will be delayed. I still want to take an Equinox on an upcoming Caribbean trip, so started shopping around on the web for one. Especially after Carter (Detector Comparisons- YouTube) and Drayton (ML Blog) demonstrated how good the Equinox is detecting gold/gold chains in saltwater! I have no idea how long this Equinox source will be available for/dry-up, but thought I would share this info for those of you wanting an Equinox now and are not yet on a waiting list. Of all pla
  7. Our Caribbean travel group have 8 units on order! We're hoping the NOX is good enough to replace our Excaliburs. Especially since it seems to behave so well in wet salt sand in the video. I would like to see it performing waist deep in saltwater. But things are sure looking good. I have already designed a customized NOX travel bag for myself to carry 2 detectors and 2 sets of waterproof headphones- Oh speaking of which again, ML told me to order water phones now! Last time I inquired no dealer had a clue about the waterproof headphone availability and why I called ML. Mine are on order
  8. It's good to make a manual available with product availability. Still the nice lady at ML said the manual would be posted on their site, on the release date. Perhaps saying late January does not count as the release date? Oh well, like I said previously I was hoping to take a NOX to Caribbean to test in the sea for 7 days. I wanted to read the manual because it looked like my ML dealer friend might have to pack my NOX to the Caribbean, as there might not be time to first ship it to me for test garden familiarization. I wanted to at least be able to study the manual. I've given up on the i
  9. Really... when one purchases a detector a comprehensive manual should be included- That's Smart. Garrett has printed nice pocket manuals/field guides as not everyone is an expert. But I guess when some businesses have too much business, they can get away with less customer service. Like some Box stores do. Soon there will be no customer service anywhere and the new generation will not even care. One will just have to figure it out on your own. Perhaps not providing a manual is a way to save money and reduce the price of the detector? Or perhaps too many languages are required for pr
  10. Funny, but kind of true. Deliberate or not by ML, brilliant NOX... Ach mein Furher... Ich meine "Equinox" marketing! So many willing to part $ for an unseen product- Brilliant!
  11. Since the NOX battery is built in, serious treasure hunters will be interested in back-up power sources. Lets say a gold nugget hunter spends 2 weeks in the AK Bush... having power options, including possibly Solar could be a real solution for the NOX. How much back-up power will have to be determined. Does one want just emergency power or enough power on reserve for 10 full recharges? Obviously for the casual hobbyist 12 hours detecting time is plenty, unless they forget to charge the unit before heading out, in which case even the hobbyist should be interested in emergency detecting
  12. Steve, in your NOX photo is that the actual NOX magnet connect charging wire? How solid is the magnetic connection? Comes off easy or strong enough to use in the field?
  13. As a shallow water hunter who travels to hunt, I'm finding the NOX 600 attractive. First I travel with 2 machines and will need 2 sets of waterproof headphones... this as back-up. Imagine arriving at your final destination only to discover your machine quit! The price of 2 600s and 2 sets water phones is less than the price of 2 800s. ML says on a wet salt beach the prospecting mode will not work. So do I need it or any of the other 800 extra bells? Perhaps? If the NOX meets my expectations, then for the first time that I can recall, will be able to travel with a great detector (6
