    Concentric Coil For Equinox 800?

    I am sure you all have seen the Whites double Coil package that comes with the new 24K, a dd elliptical and a concentric. If whites can do it, I am sure minelab could if they desired. There is a lot more than meets the eye about the properties of a concentric on a VLF. Edge sensitivity being number one to me, also spot on pinpointing unlike the long thin coils overlap line of a dd. The first thing my hunting buddies wanted to know about my new detector, does the 6" coil have edge sensitivity, I had to say no.

    Concentric Coil For Equinox 800?

    I have used a GB2 for yrs, with the little 3x6 concentric coil, it beats out any dd in that size range. Due to its success ratio no dd was ever built for the GB2.

    Concentric Coil For Equinox 800?

    I am just not a dd fan. I find a concentric small coil pinpoints much better, and there is added depth over a dd of same size. I can get by with my 6" DD for awhile anyway. Til Steve gets his 6x10 dd.
  4. Will there be a future concentric coil made for the equinox 800? I sure could use one for nugget detecting smaller gold.
  5. I just ordered a Equinox 800 with the 6" and 11" coils from Doc yesterday. This morning I got this new cover on the way too, should keep the control housing in nice shape out in the desert. Headed for Rye Patch Tue for a few days. Am hoping the equinox 800 arrives before tue.

    Finally Got To 100 Bits Today......

    Looks like your doing great! Some of those pieces are not so small! I am sure a pi would pick up more that are beyond the depth of the gm1000, but its doing great for sure. Congrats.

    Mars Coils For Equinox?

    Not too likely any off brand coils will be made for the equinox, there is a pretty good sized circuit board in the coil!!
  8. I would say the 6" is far superior for small nugget hunting, less ground noise than the 11". If its larger deep nuggets you desire its time to get out the PI I would think. I wonder if its possible to order the equinox 800 with just the 6" coil?

    Video - Goldmaster 24K Air Tests

    Wow, impressive this is well within GB2 territory in sensitivity.

    Goldmaster 24k - All Options And Basic Use

    Great video! Great explanation of the machines functions.
  12. Well here we are well into 2018 and no CZX nugget machine yet, I did hear on one forum a few months back its still progressing but several setbacks and advancing slowly, this comment was from Dave J. who is on this project. Whites has even beaten Fisher to the punch with the new GMT 24K VLF, with a new patented ground balance method of some sort, and 50% more power to the coil, I will be at Whites while on vacation this next week for a 2 hour tour, gonna be asking questions about the new 24K. I am in the market for a new VLF nugget machine. The way Fisher originally described the CZX it sounded more like a time domain detector than a VLF. Doubt that would be possible at 1,000 price range.

    Aftermarket Coils For Gm1000??

    I wonder if a little 3x6 concentric would work on a GM1000? Or if any concentric would? I see the new 24K comes with a dd and a concentric. I am partial to concentric coils on VLF machines.
  14. I am with you Mike, I will say this does bother me. You may not get your moneys worth out of a detector with cell phone style technology. Could be it will only have a working life of 5-6 yrs and that is not enough for what we pay for new detectors these days. We are used to buying a well made detector that is repairable down the road if need be and will last us 10-15 yrs or more and then we could even sell it to someone else to use if we aren't using it anymore.

    The Rokon Is Back In The Game

    Very cool, your back in business. I ran a 1986 Honda CT110 for three yrs out at rye patch, it worked well for me, then I decided to upgrade to a 700 efi Rhino. Still getting used to that. I will probably be back out at rye patch this fall.
