Nice detector pickthumbs up, and answered my question.

I saw your Signature yesterday had an XLT in it and that got me wondering. I was going to e-mail but you've now satisfied that question plus one other. The other was that you didn't mention the Nokta CoRe in an earlier post of which detectors you are parting with.

I take it you're hanging onto the Minelab Equinox 800. Interesting, to me, that you are one of six people I personally know who bought the EQ-800. All of them are people I know who hunt older places like the iron littered RR ghost towns and other similar really challenging sites, and a couple of them are also avid Coin Hunters as well. Six people who bought a Minelab Equinox. And you are the Only one of the six I know who decided to keep the EQ-800.

The others sold or traded them, replacing them with a different brand detectors. The Nokta CoRe, and the Relic for denser iron contamination, are still my favorite models to grab in the more challenging sites I enjoy. The toughest iron filled places my Relic gets grabbed first, but in what some might consider to be 'average' ferrous litter I never hesitate to grab the Nokta CoRe. Both models are very, very tough to beat out in the real relic oriented world.

I am pleased to see you added an XLT into your detector outfit and bet that with a 6½" Concentric coil it will be a delight for you to use in some of your permission sites. Even the stock 950 might be OK for you in some yards and other open grassy sites. Simply due to weight and balance and the difficulties I'm having with my neck/shoulder/arm I've been trimming my outfit and am down to only two White's models. A modified Classic ID w/5½" Concentric, and the MX-7 with a three-coil set-up to help take on most any need I might have come my way.

By the way, the MX-7, or any of the White's products made today or in the past, can come close to the performance of the CoRe and Relic on some of the toughest nail and non-ferrous sample that I use, but they can not match the CoRe or Relic can do. No perfect detector so, with all that I favor, I pick them for the best performance they provide for various applications they excel at.
