  2. I havent we went relic hunting yesterday up in the Bradshaws a few old mining camps, but no nugget shooting, still trying to get used to the Nox. This test was on a friends claim up in Turkey creek.

  6. Equinox 600 Arrived Today!

    Awesome Terry Welcome to the club
  7. Granted I only got to use about 4-5 of those to hunt here are some thoughts on the detector so far.
  8. Im telling you its not easy making these videos maybe I should just stop and let them wait, while I enjoy learning mine :P lol j/k
  9. A few live digs from last night with the Minelab Equinox 800
  10. I did a little nail test yesterday (5 nails tightly around a silver quarter, very tough) but fully disclosed in video that im still learning and results may vary, a few guys saw the video as i simply ran it in a few default modes Park 1 didnt hit it well, so they got a negative opinion on it due to that one video. I told them dont jump the gun and draw a conclusion of one video of an inexperienced user. That being said I read more and am starting to understand the various settings, I tweaked them and may have some nice results to show you all. After my tweaks I highly recommend the 800 version as you can adjust many other tones and pitches and other stuff to make those hidden targets sing. Im still in my infancy as an owner but I can see the potential now and am completely satisfied with my purchase... maybe I shouldnt hype it though, more goodies for me lol. Gotta use the all the tools Minelab put them there just learn them and you will prosper
  11. Equinox has shipped to Nugget Shooter

    Great detector folks I was fortunate to get first round , can confirm its worth the wait. Someone just did a video of it hitting a gold chain easily in salt water, Excalibur and CTX couldnt hit it.. I have all 3 of those now lol so that was bitter sweet to watch. Im seeing more and more people get them now. so it appears they are catching up a bit.
  12. lol no doubt, ill be ok.. I just cant believe all the negativity out there in all forums im in... and I cant slap them from my desktop :P
  13. Man I sure opened a can of worms with this video lol some extreme minelab fans, paid sponsors, or dealers or whoever sure jumped my case for a statement in this video that was simply my opinion. I stated in the video that the Equinox will definitely not replace the Etrac or CTX, I own a CTX and personally dont see the the variety of tools it has to offer, at least yet.. so the comment was made innocently but they turned it into a lynching pretty much.. Maybe its all the anger they built up waiting months to get theirs I dont know but I was in no way trying to critique the Nox, i love it so far and Im sure after I learn all it has to offer it will be in the top of my collection. Just wanted to clarify this was simply my opinions on it, I never force my opinion on people you take it or leave it, but I try to be honest , sometimes too honest. Bill knows my personality and even cracked a joke about how critical I am at times and to make sure to give it a chance. In all honesty I couldnt find any flaws in the machine. The video was meant to more to show how pleased I was but a few turned it into me attacking it or minelab... I am a very unbiased person. I am hoping to provide a better opinion shortly was just trying to get some info out there quickly for those waiting Currently I feel I got every bit of value out of my money, its a great machine and I already know it will be a keeper for me... CTX will be taking a vacation for now lol
  14. Equinox.....

    I am one of the few lucky ones to have received mine so far, played with it a bit yesterday and very impressed well built in my opinion and lightweight, large crisp accurate target ID, will be trying to share videos and pictures as well as opinions on it as I progress.
  15. Butterfield Trail

    If you ever need a hunting buddy let me know I am quite often up for adventure live in North phoenix currently but travel the valley often
  16. Equinox UPDATE

    Here are my first thoughts... in short I love it so far, and Bill knows Im a tough customer lol I own pretty much all of the top of the line VLF detectors. Spent most of my day experimenting with target ID numbers so didnt get to the fun stuff until it got dark but will surely be out again tomorrow to share what i can with you all. Thanks so much Bill for helping me be one of the first in the world to receive one, Im very fortunate as many are still waiting. i feel the pain so hoping to share lots with everyone waiting to help ease the pain.
  17. Indeed, I purchased one of the magnet sweepers to help tame the ferrous trash.
