    Minelab Equinox Software Update

    It appears to be the same software update as it said I have the current software installed when I ran it. Probably just a bug fix for the down load itself.
  5. Daniel the cable on the Hungarians I originally had was too short and I'm 5'8". I used a heat gun to stretch out the last 6" or so of coils above the connector. Doesn't have to straighten out completely, just enough heat to relax the coils a bit.

    The Equinox Curse

    It's frustrating at times. I remember hitting and old neighborhood ball field and the first foil target dug was a gold band. 20 some pcs of foil later I hung it up and left. LOL

    Beach Hunting Recovery Speed

    Strictly a fresh water guy but for ocean hunting does threshold play a major part when setting sensitivity and recovery?
  8. Trading in a detector for the Nox was a toss up between the F75 and X-T 705. Both being equally deep in my ground on coins. The 705 stayed only because the control pod is removable and I had invested in a coil cable extension which makes a nice back up detector for my fresh water hunting. Tom

    Battery Reminder

    Thanks for the reminder Ted. Just finished up Tom Thanks for the invite JW that's quite the offer. Snow just starting here so works out fine for me. Ticket purchased just need directions from the airport to your house. 🍸 Tom

    Tesoro Lobo Scores Anglo Saxon Gold

    Probably buried by a robber shortly before he was beheaded. LOL

    Tesoro Lobo Scores Anglo Saxon Gold

    My hunting buddy has a Lobo with the 6" concentric... The depth and separation is top notch.
  12. 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!
  14. 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.
