I just wanted to say Hi and introduce myself.
I live in Southern Calif with my awesome wife of 45 years and love to metal detect the local beaches. Currently, I'm using the Minelab Equinox 800 along with the XP Deus.
My first outing with the Equinox, I found my gold wedding ring that had been lost in the backyard for several years. My first time out on the beach with the Deus, I found a beautiful Silver Academy ring.
So I like both detectors and will keep them both in the stable.
Whether you're a nugget hunter, relic hunter or a coin shooter, best of luck out there to everyone.
