Hey There Coinboy,

Welcome to Monte's site - and if it is any consolation, Monte doesn't care for the Equinox and has found good success with the Nokta / Makro products, so if you decide to go with the Impact, you'll be in good company. thumbs up

And if you ask me, what I think about all this detector BIAS that is out there, get yourself a quality detector, learn how to use it, hunt with it a lot, make a lot of finds and become expert with it.

There are a lot of flashy distractions out there to turn your attention away from where it should be and make you think the grass is greener on the other side of the fence. Explore, research, talk to folks so you hunt quality sites and be expert with your detector.

Looking forward to your future posts.

Well hi everyone! Thanks for the kind remarks. I'm 13 years old and DARED to not get the almighty Equinox and was constantly harassed by members on that forum. Thanks to Timbertodd for inviting me and Monte for a nice email welcoming me. Unfortunately the deal fell through on the detector I was going to get (Fisher F19) but now I have my eyes on a different machine (Nokta Impact) that seems like a good fit for the kind of hunting I do. I'm sure people will criticize me and say "Oh how could you not get the Equinox, you are going to miss targets" or "Your machine is outdated technology" and that sort of thing. But if suits me, my budget, and what I hunt, so screw the haters! Here is a response I received on the other forum, no names mentioned:
"Sorry Coinboy , but this came off as hilarious to (Insert member name)! The only picture racing through my mind is a house full of 3rd rate , garage sale hand me downs. Appliances , tools , knick-knacks , faulty products , the whole gambit. All because you like to go against the flow. If you can afford it , I highly recommend the website or magazine of "Consumer Reports "

So thanks for welcoming me to a site where that doesn't happen!
