Yes you could. A fat Man or Woman that needs to stop eating big Mac's LOL

I want lighter machines .

Trust me that if this machine is the replacement for the Terra's it will beat many other machines to a standstill on coin hunting . The Deus users will have to watch out .

Many times i have searched beaches in fact 800 times in 7 years and over that time with the 705 i found far more than others using machines like the CTX and even the ET which i love.

If people have the CTX then why look at this machine ? its not in the same price range but i bet its not far away the same capability though not settings of course.

For me (assuming the excitement pans out with real world results), it would be getting a lighter backup for the sore shoulder days. Also my wife wants a lighter beach hunter. Also, remember that the tech is different from FBS; + being able to force a single frequency and hunt for gold is attractive to me.

That would make a lot of sense to grab the holiday sales.

The sooner the better. Champ said something that really gets me excited about this machine...."the tech is different from FBS". I love "FBS" but it has been around for a while. Seems to me whenever new tech comes out old sites become like new again just because the new tech is "different". I am reading a lot of posts that state they are hoping the multi mode is FBS, BBS, etc. I hope not (Although, fast FBS would be welcomed). I hope it "sees" the ground or targets differently than previous tech. My E-Trac already has FBS and is awesome. I hope that this new multi is different and just as awesome as FBS.

think the puff will die out on this if they are 6 months away from release , lot of things can happen in 6 months be a shame to see minelab get sniped at the post.. reading between the lines they are scared to show us a pre production modal ..

time will tell as they say..

I think ML will get sniped at regardless of what they do. Why would tomorrow be any different than yesterday, so to speak.
Heck, just look at some of the posts on the various forums already sniping at the Equinox. Its just what people do.

Dean, as you know I am one of the ones that has stated that I hope the "multi-frequency" mode is FBS or FBS-like ("Multi-IQ" is what it is being called). YES -- I agree with you in that IF Multi-IQ is "just as awesome" as FBS, then I'm all in. My point is, I don't expect this. I don't think they were trying to "improve upon" the benefits of FBS -- i.e. being unparalleled in offering accurate ID on deep targets in turf-type settings. I just don't think that was the aim of this particular unit. Why do I feel that way? Because if this was their goal -- to make an IMPROVED multi-frequency mode that rivals FBS, then I don't think we'd see it at $649. In other words, I don't think they INTENDED "Multi-IQ" to be an improvement on FBS, and I don't think that's the point of this detector. And so ASSUMING that is true, that's why I'd like to see an Equinox model with FBS tech included (say, a "1000" model). If my assumption is INCORRECT, and Multi-IQ proves to be as good as, or better than, FBS, then I agree with you -- no need for FBS in this unit.
