The Equinox with the 6" coil. It can be set hot on small gold. Makes the detector very light.

As most know, I enjoy using smaller-size coils and the round 6" For the Equinox is no exception. I like that coil on that model the best because it does get very good depth-of-detection and can be worked in the cluttery areas or in and around dense brush. However, I have and use 5 of my of my 8 current detectors that keep a 6" or smaller coil mounted so the Equinox 800 w/6" was just not a good 'fit' for me and my hunting opportunities these days.

How does the F75 do with the small concentric coil? I have heard it works great on micro jewelry. Even on tiny white gold earrings.

So far it has been working well. Health issues this year have cut in on my detecting so I need to get more field-time with it, but I mainly chose it for the F-75+ mainly for urban Coin & Jewelry Hunting. I need more hunt-time with it but it has hit well on both coins and smaller-size jewelry anjd nis great around heavy trash such as around picnic bowery's and the like.
