Monte-----I didn't know you had an Equinox 800.----You are really coming over to the "dark side"! (now having both the Vanquish & Equinox)------Do you feel at some point these has a chance at replacing your CoRe & Relic?--------Del

I bought the EQ-800 a week ago today with the 6" DD coil as it is likely the only coils I would want to use much for where I hunt. I was going to give it a week to convince me to like it, but I was busy packing and moving things so I'm giving it 10 days, through this coming Sunday, to get mny attention and make it a working part of my detector group.

Replace my Nokta CoRe's or a Relic? Not a chance. It first has to handle the Nail Board in 2-Tone and 5-Tone to match or better the performance I get from a CoRe, Relic, Impact, ORX, Bandido II µMAX and Silver Sabre µMAX and even the Simplex +. And to be a 'scouting unit' or good tool for the fringe areas of the different ghost towns I work from the gold mining era or ranging and farming locations, it needs to work better for me than the Vanquish 540, Impact and ORX.

I've owned and used different Minelab models going back to some of my favorite Sovereigns, and I also had some of the first X-Terra's in this country plus owned a half-dozen FBS models. Just didn't like their weight or poor balance or some irritating performance behavior of some of them. I held off trying the Equinox 800 but now with two Vanquish 540's and a good outfit for my needs I figured I'd do a buy-and-try to see if it might be welcome in my detector group. I'll know by sundown this Sunday and, if not, it will be up for sale.
