I always 'hope' for the best, but I also rely on 'field-time' validation.

That said, I hope you & Patsy like the EQ-800 package for feel, stability in physical packaging, and in functional performance and comfort. As expected after the big deal pre-introduction announcement 11+ months ago at Detectival, there was a big surge of "I want it!" folks eager to get one of the two new models and it seemed to take a long, long time before they started to eeek out to consumers. That was followed with another long-delay in getting a smaller-than-stock coil out for the Equinox series..

We've heard reports of loose-fitting units; displays that go blank and don't work; and other issues which can occur with any newly-released product. Certainly we have read some reports about nice finds being made, but I can guarantee anyone that the majority of those finds could have also been made when using a different detector. The individual just happened to sweep over the target, and they might have been using less Discrimination or more curiosity while learning the newer detector model.

One thing I have noticed, in a greater percentage than hat usually would have been anticipated, are the increased number of Equinox models being put up for sale or trade on so many Classifieds Forums. Usually before they are sold there are no or very limited negative comments.. But I like to contact people after they got rid of a unit to find out the real reason(s) they let them go. So far those I have contacted didn't like the audio, didn't like the feel/balance/durability, didn't think nit outperformed other makes and models they had, or just plain and simple ... they didn't like it.

So I hope that in your case you will come to enjoy it and the end performance you two get from the EQ's will feel it to be a worthy investment.
