A really good overview, UtahRich. ... and mostly correct.

It's not that I don't care for the Equinox 800, and I acknowledge it's a good detector and works for a lot of people and they're satisfied with it. It's more along the lines of I don't NEED the Equinox because I am satisfied with how that company's Vanquish 540 handles most of the same sites I would hunt. And I prefer the feel of the V-540.

And it is true, that I am rather partial to some of the Nokta / Makro models, such as the CoRe and Relic has my Specialty Units for dense iron contaminated sites, and the Racer 2 with 7" Concentric and Simplex + w/5X9 1/2 DD in my Daily-Use Team.

Those are complemented with my V-540, Tesoro Bandido 2 microMAX and Silver Sabre microMAX and the new Garrett Apex. And with all of them, as you suggested to Coinboy, I just try to use them and learn them because I enjoy them. That means I'm having fun and I don't really fuss much about what others use. If they like it, great.

And given time, I believe Coinboy is going to enjoy these AHRPS Forums and the good group of people who frequent here.
