As I figured it was the smaller coil and 3-Tone mode.

I do like some Minelab's, and use to use both BBS and FBS units. I do like the Equinox 800, but I prefer the XP ORX. If I dedicated myself to more yard hunting and such, I'd likely use an Eq-800 w/6" coil, but for a lot of the places I still hunt the ORX serves the needs. And the Garrett Apex devices are also working very well for me as a regular-use model, and for sure my two favorite Tesoro's also get put to work frequently.

However, when it comes to tackling some of those really challenging ghost town type environments, while my ORX, Apex and Bandido II µMAX can do well, I also agree with you again --- "... that the Nokta/Makro machines with small coils are formidable." That's why my Nokta FORS CoRe and FORS Relic are important selections on my Detector Team.thumbs up
