Re: Equinox users of both the 800 and 900. Questions ??

I do like the compressed VDI setup with the 800. If they had given an option to change between the 2, the 900 would be the perfect machine. But I can live with the expanded range. That said my 800 isn't going anywhere. All the many great finds I've made with that machine have paid for it 5 times over.

Of the tone options available on the 900 I like all tones.

Strange they would get rid of the Manticore and take the 900 instead. But if budget is the concern I would probably do the same thing. I personally feel the 900 is a more well rounded easier to.learn machine. The Manticore has too many quirky things going on with iron targets that will take many hours of use to learn IMO. That said I like all the metal detectors I have and enjoy using them.

Yes, for him and others, budget is limiting.
