Had 3 people test an Equinox 800 and 2 people test the Legend.

All had their 6" DD coils mounted and I asked them to start them up the way they would hunt a ghost town. I had three different 'tests' for them to use that showed Recovery Speed, a stack of 45 US Quartets, and my Nail Board.

For comparison I used my two Tesoro's w/6" and 8" Concentric coils. I need my mobility to improve before I buy my next detector and, as I had stated, it will be an Equinox 800 from the results I saw.

Two of the folks were here on our Outing and one stayed the night traveling through. His results were like those from our group. One other traveller decided he needed / wanted a metal detector that was affordable for old townsites and similar places. He left here with a brand new Fisher F19 Ltd. Another will get a hold of me later about a Tesoro. His Legend was not able to match the Tesoro performance.

I already decided on an EQ-800 but today helped comfort that decision.
