so..... WTF was the purpose of your post? You just felt like coming onto the EQ forum to say you wont buy one.... sounds pretty trollish. Maybe we should all go to every detector sub-forum to say we wont be buying one of those too?

I am going to buy a Deus . :D . Like Hell i am . The Equinox is the one to get , no doubt.

As for not wanting to change from a Safari to an Equinox , thats up to them but it wont match the Equinox for speed in Iron infested site and the weight of the Equinox is much more relaxing .
I know that for sure after using the machines i have below.



Uses = Minelab E.Trac , Minelab Explorer 11 (might sell) , Minelab Explorer XS , Minelab Equinox 800 x 2 (ordered) , Garrett Probes , Gray Ghost/ Nugget Busters

Pointless to you . But if people thought that too much then there wouldn't be any at all and the forum would die.

If you want to see pointless posts read Facebook . The most pointless waste of space on Earth.

Hell for how light they are I figured you'd have the etrac in one hand and the Explorer in the other and hunt double fisted!:lol:

Up to 11 days ago he had his Safari up for sale--and now it's the greatest thing since sliced bread?-----Strange!------I guess everybody is entitled to change their mind---but why post it here on the Equinox forum?

People are getting frustrated at the amount of time that the Equinox is taking to be released.
Maybe Minelab should have launched it nearer the time of release? But then the Russians and Polish and others are doing video's on Youtube and that would have messed it up .
People are just going to have to be patient .

I don't see why they'd be frustrated. This is pretty common for product announcements and releases. The iPhone X won't be available until late October, despite being announced in early September, and that's Apple. Video games get announced years before they are released. Cars get announced a half year before release. The Tesla Model 3, however, has been reserveable for over a year and people won't receive theirs until Mid-2018 at the earliest. The AT Max was announced months before it was available for purchase. This is normal.

Everyone who wants a Nox or is considering purchasing a Nox is anxious to know more about it. I definitely want to try one myself. That's understandable. But what we are seeing is more than just frustration. There's a good number of people that interpret everything negatively, or jump to wild conclusions based on little evidence. That's not frustration, it's something else. Someone taking time out of their day to come to a forum dedicated to the Equinox ONLY to tell us he does not want an Equinox...that just doesn't make sense. What would make sense is if he posed a question, such as "Why should I consider ditching my Safari for the Equinox?", or "What advantages might the Equinox have over my Safari", or even "I'm not convinced the Equinox is better than my Safari, am I wrong?". THOSE are discussions worth having! Those are the posts we should get. Instead, we get really lame troll attempts to invite people. It's pathetic.

For those of you that don't interpret the original post as I'll-intentioned or malicious, I commend you for being more receptive and less cynical than myself. But I'd ask you to look at all the discussions that have popped up about the Equinox, and critically examine some of the posts and the users making them, and you might just see a pattern. And yes, that includes users like me, who seem to only defend the Equinox. We exist too. I'd argue, however, that I'm not defending the Equinox or Minelab as much as I am challenging the people posting nonsense.

Tyberoz : You and I are friends. You've been patient with me, and I've been patient with you. I love your passion for wanting to excel at md'ing, the related tech, and your research for sites. But I must agree with Nuke-em : Think about the tone of how you are responding to various people. Re.: this new machine. Sure you might consider someone's input "lacking". And ... heck ... you may even be right (that's not the point). But ... perhaps you could tone down the subtle pokes at people intellect, intentions, etc.....
