Coils for the Equinox?

They mentioned coils for the Equinox in one of the videos but it isn't clear if the Equinox is going to have its own specific coils or are going to be able to use another model coils. Any word on this?

I hope they release the manual for download once the machine gets closer to production. I had been hoping for a multi-frequency waterproof X-Terra but this seems to be a pleasant compromise.

I took it as 3 dedicated coils for the Equinox, did not sound like interchangeable coils from other machines. 6" 11" 12" x 15"

Being the unit itself is priced as very reasonable, I wonder what the coils will cost?

It sure would be nice if they were interchangeable but I doubt it. Probably 6 and the 15 will equal about the price for CTX..

I would bet in the office pool, proprietary coils and $200 to $250 per coil so you are still $1k below a CTX.

Another video I saw appeared to clarify they are specific coils for the Nox.

IIRC it took Minelab a while to release the larger/smaller coils after they introduced the CTX. I hope they have the other coils available for sale when the EQ is released.

I hope it's a 12x15, not 15x12.. If it's only one inch wider then the 11"stock you won't gain anything but ground coverage.
For Deep coin hunting In parks I like the wider coils like the Tornado or WOT for a noticeable depth increase..
