That's basically an air test with the coin oh-so-carefully placed sticking out from the dirt and the coil also hanging partially past the edge of the hole. Why are they being so deceptive?

Wow if it's hitting a tiny piece of coin that deep ...I'm impressed.....that would be air testing something smaller than a dime. ....just my thoughts ...pretty good trick I guess..

My thoughts as well. But, didn't you see! The operator was sticking his tongue out...which acts like an antenna! His left foot was forward... which grounds him better! And...and ...he was facing in to the wind..and....and... everyone is trying to steal all of my money!!! DECEPTION! I tell you!! DECEPTION!

I was hoping it would be a good water machine. Good enough to replace my old Excal 1000.

It speaks volumes that the "ancient" Excal 1000 is still such a popular water detector, especially when veteran users go to such great length to modify them and keep them working.

That says a lot.

I will keep the Excal, of course, but will probably pick up an Equinox whenever they come out and give it a good working out next spring.

When it comes down to it, isn't that pretty much what we all do when a new, shiny, fascinating detector comes out? :drinking:

Reminds me of the episode on "Big Bang Theory" where Leonard, Walowitz, and Koothrapalli are at the comic book store and Stuart cons all three of them into purchasing the same fantasy card game.

Stuart said it was like, "shooting nerds in a barrel." :biggrin:

Hey Dew,
Shoulda had my coffee first ,huh. No, I didn't pre order. I do intend on getting one, though. Just getting a bit worn out by all of the silliness that's surrounding this detector's launch. I don't recall this happening with any other detector launch.

Well, i intend too buy one (NOX) also but don't have enough coin saved up yet! But heard some potentially bad news yesterday from a reliable source!! Only 600 will be available from the first run!
Looks like i won't be getting one until way after the first of the year. HH Good luck to those Pre-Order guys....

I like the concept of the EQ, so that is why I put in a pre-order early on. I hope that "news" isnt true. Garrett pulled that same crap when they released their carrot pinpointer. It took months to get mine after I made a release day order. I still love that pinpointer but I've been mad at garretts handling of the release.

haha, "fake news" to rile the troops up even more? I won't even need one till April so I'm hoping after the dirt flies a bit and things settle down I'll be able to order one
with a Pro-Find 35 incentive....

I'm really curious just how close it will come to beating the etac/ctx at their own game.....besides the obvious weight advantage....

the flurry of posts by the first adapters should be momumental! can't wait (for the posts anyway, lol)

I figured as much. Most conspiracy theories ( "He's trying to fool us"!) turn out to be nothing of the sort. I'm glad you came to your senses.
