  1. Many pages back it was referred to as a "recreational" detector. My suspicion at the time was it would be below the Equinox in price aimed at a wider mass market. An obvious and smart move on ML's part.
  2. Welcome ! Are you the same Dino that used to post on US forums a few years back? Tom
  3. What a beauty, congratulations on an outstanding find Strick.
  4. 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.
  6. 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
  7. 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
  9. 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
  10. Probably buried by a robber shortly before he was beheaded. LOL
  11. 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.
  13. 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.
  15. Way cool. Lunk needs a new nick name "Wildcat" Loved the old Riviera's https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=12&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwjvhLG3nMbeAhXK6YMKHfeTA1gQFjALegQICRAB&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.hemmings.com%2Fcars-for-sale%2Fbuick%2Friviera%2F1973&usg=AOvVaw3gCX4RGnQz5J4tw1W-OcoL
  16. Great story Steve and congratulations on your amazing gold finds. Re: MIndy's find.. what can I say.. stunningly beautiful! Tom
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. I have left several 15's (axe heads) leaning against the base of trees at the lumber camp I have been hunting.
  21. 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
