Rich, my next detector acquisition will be ....

June 02, 2022 09:38PM avatar
an Equinox 800, naturally with the 6" coil.

Do I need the EQ-800? No, not necessiarily with the outfit I now have.

Do I want the EQ-800? Yes and I have thought this through the past eight to twelve months.

The big question is why? The answer is simple. I read and listen and follow comments from you, Utahmike, and several others as I have tried to settle on a good outfit of detectors for the hunting I plan to do. I have gathered up a range of detectors I like that work well, and for some applications I feel the 800 is what I need.

I'll just work at improving my mobility and health then spend more time detecting.

How many feel the EQ-800 has benefitted their Coin Hunting?

I've never found most of the dirt in Utah to be all that challenging.

VDI at depth

I've never been a big proponent for 'depth'.
