  1. Yup, and field 2 is a real corker in or out of the water. I can run iron at 0 and sens 24 in almost all lakes and it runs smooth as silk. The big lake can be a problem however due to the rollers creating larger ripples farther apart.

    Continues To Impress Me

    Sweet! Diamonds are a rare find for me and that's a nice one!
  3. One of these days, maybe in the spring when the snow is gone, I will try the single freq modes. At present all I have used is Multi and between the audio response and TID that's all I need. Most of the hours I have on the 800 are fresh water wading and about the only thing I pass on is the obvious non-rusty caps and if things are slow I dig em anyway and why not. LOL The only complaint I have is under water ripples in the sand creating positive responses in the audio necessitating raising the iron zone to 1 or at times even 2. Field 2 helps on that but I'd prefer to use park 2 at all times. I have seen this with other detectors but the Nox in Park 2 is much more prone to this than other VLF's.

    Great story Steve and congratulations on your amazing gold finds. Re: MIndy's find.. what can I say.. stunningly beautiful! Tom
  9. I've had the same epiphany after the update and made a comment to the effect the other day. Whether it's the detector, me or a combination of both it's rather nice.

    I'm using field 2 as well at the camps but have switched to using park 2 primarily at most other sites. I might give park 2 a try there next time I'm out that way. I'm fighting a cold and the northern Mich weather at the moment however.

    Not sure of the answer or that I can confirm if the upgrade has anything to do with it either. What I do know is that it is running smoother and with less falseing overall so IMO the upgrade made a positive difference. Coin shooting at old fair grounds and one room school sites in the area is a pleasure, meaning it has pretty much taken ferrous out of the equation compared to when I first got the machine but that could also have to do with use and being more familiar with the detector as well.

    I have left several 15's (axe heads) leaning against the base of trees at the lumber camp I have been hunting.
  13. It would be really sweet if Mars could adapt their 6x10 sniper coil for the Equinox. I have tried many other aftermarket coils but for me Mars coils are it for performance, light weight and a wide variety of available sizes. I have an X-Terra 705 and the only reason it is staying in the arsenal is the increase in overall performance it has shown using Mars coils. Tom
