Detector Outfit is now trimmed ... Started a list for the next detectors I will add.

June 03, 2022 08:27AM avatar
Over the past year I have spent some unexpected 'down-time' that let me reflect on the detectors I own, those I would like, and the different applications I have for them, knowing that I need to keep working on my part to get strength and mobility back. Most of my future detecting is going to be urban Coin Hunting with just a little old-site searching now and then when able. I have watched a lot of videos, read many Forum posts, and both called and e-mailed several people regarding the detectors I now own and those I still plan to get.

The next detector I am going to spend money on is a brand new Equinox 800 with the 6" coil. As with any detector, there are things I do and don't like about it, however I happen to like the audio response, and I like to rely on the audio more than a visual ID. But, for many applications, the VDI of the Equinox has a bit of an edge over most of the competition. It probably will not be my primary-use detector, but it will be put to work in the locations where it ought to provide some better performance.

Now, I did mention more than one and after the Equinox it will be either a Bounty Hunter, Teknetics or Fisher detector, and my selection would be in that order. They are all the same detector circuitry, and those are the 19 kHz Time Ranger Pro, G2+ or F19. My reasons, in order, are looks and color, rod/grip configuration, or just the left-over. I already have the 5" DD coil and would only want a mid-size.

I considered all the detectors out there, including the two newest from XP and Nokta / Makro, but thought things through and am comfortable with my plans. It's always good to have plans for the future and those are mine for detectors. I am completely outfitted and only plan to add the above, in that order.

PS: That also means I have no intention of parting with the 8 I have, even if it included adding a favorite back in that I had sold or traded off. My 'Signature' will be up-to-date after I post this.
