This machine really clicks with me.
Any brand, and any model, should be something that 'clicks' with the user because if a detector provides a feel and balance, adjustment features and audio response that a user is comfortable with, they will be more inclined to learn it and be more comfortable and relaxed when using it. That can let them feel more at ease and concentrate on listening for target responses rather than having their mind busy pondering what to tinker with in adjustments or wondering if the detector is working right or well enough for the site challenges they face.

Not to mention this thing is amazing in the heavy iron relic sites. Machine audio reminds me of the tesoro audio, except with 5 tones like the Tesoros should be ha ha ha.
To me, and for the types of sites I typically hunt that have a lot of iron debris and rusty tin, I want a detector in my personal arsenal to be able to handle iron, and work as well in iron or come very, very close to the performance we can get from a proven Tesoro model.

There are some very good Coin Hunting detectors out there for nice and proper city lawns, but they fall flat on their face when anyone tries to work them in a really nasty, dense iron debris area. There's no doubt in my mind the Equinox ought to be working better than typical Minelab models for the types of locations we hunt because that has been a weak spot for Minelab for a long, long time.

The BBS and FBS models have had their strengths, to be sure, but hunting in really dense nail and iron contaminated sites hasn't been one of them. They've needed something new and different and I think they finally figured out something to compete. It doesn't knock the CTX 3030, E-Track, Explorer II and other FBS units out of the market because they definitely have their strong points even over the Equinox, but this new model is going to be a shot in their arm to cure their illness of being allergic to those old railroad and similar ghost towns that abound in a dense iron contamination.

Do you only have the standard 11" DD coil? Plan on getting the 6" coil for your Equinox?

Hope to see you soon on the 7th WTHO which will be wrapping up just 4 weeks from today.
