Have to agree AND disagree with you on that one Gregg.-----Over hyped--oh yeah--they did that all right---the b.s. was just ah flyin!-----Ghost towns full of iron & rusted/busted tin & fallin on it's ass yah say?smiling smiley-----I don't see that happening--not hardly.------It's nothing overly special in the iron---but---it's the best rusted./busted tin "worker" I've ever seen WITH THE 6" COIL (and I've tried a bunch).----Having said all that---they can loose that 11" coil for it--have no use for it.-----IMO, it's something of a quirky noisy running little buggar & I can see some people not liking it.----But--it can be very effective if used "right".---Myself---the only use I have for it is with the 6" coil in ghost townsy areas (mainly for working the tin--(to a lesser extent iron).------As to park hunting---I wouldn't use it for that---that's when I get ahold of my CTX or Etrac (which whips its butt in that scenario).-----To me the E800 is a specialty use detector & for use ONLY with the 6" coil & that's the ONLY reason I keep it.-----So yeah---I agree---and---disagree with you my friend.smiling smiley---------Del-------

I'm currently taking the time to learn the Equinox 800 and find out just how 'special' it really is.

I think you will find its not that special in ghost towns......all the freq it throws out will not come close to unmasking coins etc that a nokta makro single freq machine will do. Upon release they also released a whole bunch of hype ...or in my town we would say a whole bunch of B...S.... Like a minelab machine it will find the deep silver in the parks.....prob better than any other machine.......put it in a ghost town and it falls on it ass. its really that simple. It might be full of magic......but throw it in a ghost town full of iron and rusted tin.....you will find no magic in that machine.
