Rich----I've been using the E800 in ghost town sites, old mining camps and some town parks.----(IMO), it doesn't do as well in iron as the Fors Relic---but---it does better in that lousy busted tin in those old sites than either the Relic--or CTX/Etrac for that matter (I'm talking busted tin here, not iron).----I don't like the balance of it (Equinox) swith the 11" stock coil--the weight/balance with the 6" is great.---My friend Steve is working on a shaft that helpfully will alleviated this situation.-----As to performance--in the last few months it has found me one Seated Liberty half & various other silver coins---whereas---the CTX going over basically the same areas & in the same time frame has found me two Seated Liberty halves, one Seated quarter & a couple of Seated dimes (one a 1850-0).-----They were found with the CTX & 6" coil.-----So you can take that for what it's worth---but so far I haven't gotten the performance out of the equinox I hoped for (yet).------But to be fair, I have thousands of hours behind the FBS detectors and the Equinox is a different "animal".------I'm not insinuating the FBS units are good in iron because they aren't--the Equinox does better in that regard---but---I have yet to find a detector that does better in iron than the Fors Relic.----I said iron, not tin---the Equinox does much better than the Relic in that regard.----------Del

You are not alone Rich!!!! (eyes looking side to side)smiling smiley------Patsy & I each still have one (E800).----It's a nice detector but to be perfectly honest---I'm still waiting for the "wow" moment.----We're giving it the rest of the winter before we make a decision to keep them or not.-----There's things about it I like & things about it I don't like (don't get me started).smiling smiley---------Pssst, don't tell anybody but I think ole Gregg is just jealous of us because we even have 'em!!!!!!!!!!!-----Don't tell anybody I told you that.winking smiley---------------Del

Hey Del,

I'm glad that I'm not alone here. I assumed you were one of the 'previous owners' Monte referred to that had sold off their Equinox in favor of something else.

What types of places are your using your 800? I believe you have a solid assortment of detector choices. How does your 800 compare to other detectors you use in the places you like to hunt? (likes & dislikes)

Do you think there are other 'better' choices out there?

Interested to read your response.
