We are all passionate about our Minelabs,past present and future! Because they all do work really well we would like to think the one we have is perfect for us! And we very well may be right. There's always time to tinker with the newest model in the future,some will do it right away and some may wait. Either way is just fine.

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?

This isn't directly at anyone in particular But, why make an issue over his post?

You could have just asked why/ how did you come up with that conclusion???

A whole bunch of you are starting to sound "trollish" IMO

What do you think you have to defend anyway. ML makes good detectors.. we all know that. Doesn't mean everyone has to shell out the hard earned bucks to grab every new machine that comes along.

..... I commend you for being more receptive and less cynical than myself. .....

I don't think they're "more receptive" (ie.: believing another's views) or "less cynical" (failing to see , or withholding counter views). They would just address the actual data being discussed. Ie.: the merits, or lack-thereof, of the ACTUAL device, method, topic, etc..... Let me give you an example: I have a bee-in-my-bonnet TH'ing related topic (to a fault) as well : The sillyness of LRL, dowsing . It fascinates me how people believe, and/or how they respond to counter explanations. But I am very careful to keep it at the actual subject. Despite that, yes, I might wonder "is this guy numb-nuts or what?". Ie.: no name calling, but ... just the topic itself. Yes i know that's a fine-line to tread. And yes I know we all get passionate.

.....and you might just see a pattern. .....

It's just a pattern of people being the devils advocate, to elicit conversation. And to the extent that sometimes (invariably) there WILL be "nonsense posts", ok, either skip those posts . Their lack of merit will be evident. Or address just the facts (pro's/con's) themselves of those conversations.

Now let's get back to the business of md'ing. We're already in mid October, so the storm/swell season is coming soon. Heck, we just had a minor NW "bump" that you saw gave the fellow 100 + coins and gold ring. And not mentioned in that post was that his hunt partner had even more coins and a fat gold ring. So .... as you can see, beach action can start erupting even in early October around here. I also just discovered a new ghost town that you and I can work on if you want. So there's too much to pursue, and too little time to get "worked up"

Hey Del how ya been?

Had a bad year and was not able to hunt much. Got zero silver coins, but ended up with some IH's in the poke.

No snow yet, fingers crossed) Cabin fever can be at its worst when there is the promise of something new on the horizon.

This detector may well not be a good fit for everyone. Im looking at it as a salt water/beach machine....... will i keep my Xcals? Them and the CTX are hard to beat. Once they are out...... i too may decide ill keep what i have. BUT..... we have to GET the machine. Then we will separate the fish stories before spending the money....... since i have more than a couple of detectors lol.

I am looking for a good water machine with decent target ID. If the Equinox ends up filling that slot in my detector arsenal, I will probably still keep the Excal, but just as a backup.

For dry land hunting we will see.......

I have gotten used to the Excal tones.
