If I recall correctly you were very proficient with the Xterra detectors. Is the Equinox an updated version of the Xterra's ???

Xterra different frequency coils single frequency choices Equinox computer controlled frequency .............. Just curious if this is Minelabs improvement of prior Xterra detectors. Thanks.

glad to see a new sub-forum up for this detector. Lets hope it doesnt go the route that the early CTX forum went.

Thanks for the compliment regarding the X-TERRA. I am limited as to what I discuss regarding the Equinox at this point. But what I will say is that the technology behind the Equinox is entirely different than VFLEX technology of the X-TERRA series. I also think it would be fair to say that, as Minelab releases more information regarding the Equinox, it should become increasingly clear to serious detectorists that Minelab engineers have not only been listening to their customer base........ but were willing to think way outside of the box on this one.

You'll never know for sure......unless you dig it! HH "Digger"




After 45-years of detecting, and having owned dozens of different detectors, I've come to the conclusion that maintaining success in the field is largely dependent on three things..... choice of site, acquiring a proper skill set for the detector and the detector itself..... in that order. Research, practice and persistence. There are no substitutes.

Nothing special about it, any minelab dealer can take a pre-order.

I want one of these detectors because they will have good TDI information. I want to know what's down there before I kill myself digging to China.

I just put my money where my mouth is. I pre-ordered and am going to be one of the first to get one. Anyone who waits is just kidding themselves or losing out.

The blurb below this diagram may make some people feel better about the 600...."20 kHz and 40 kHz are not available as single operating frequencies in EQUINOX 600. The Multi-IQ frequency range shown applies to both EQUINOX 600 and 800. This diagram is representative only. Actual sensitivity levels will depend upon target types and sizes, ground conditions and detector settings."
