Sorry for the delay, but for me it is excellent!

It is the lightest and best-balanced detector in my outfit. I have one with the 5X9½ DD HF coil mounted, and the other ORX sports the round 9" X35 DD coil. These two detectors, and now the Vanquish 540 Pro, are my "General Purpose" detectors, and with my mobility limitations I've had to trim my outfit to meet my needs.

My Nokta CoRe and Relic are also well balanced and a surprise to many when they feel home comfortable they are, but they are always hard-at-work with their smaller 'OOR or 5" DD coils. My Tesoro Bandido II µMAX and Silver Sabre µMAX both are quite light and handy and I only use the 6" Concentric on them. Another light-feeling and balanced unit is my Fisher F44 w/7" Concentric, and while I use it from time-to-time, it mainly serves as a 'loaner-unit.' 'My Nokta / Makro Simplex is also going to be a 'general-purpose' detector once they get smaller coils out for it, but even with the 11" DD coil it is still quite comfortable to use.

But for open-area searches and most of my urban grassy areas are easily handled by my two ORX models and the Vanquish. Too bad MInelab didn't come up with the Vanquish physical package first and put the Equinox series in that design.
