do you no what the cost of the coils are that you pre ordered?
. Not yet but my dealer is going to give me a package cost once he gets the pricing from Minelab. I just told him what I wanted so that he could work up a price when the pricing becomes available.

I preordered an 800 from my local dealer a few days after the release announcement back in mid-September. I also paid in full at that time. Hopefully, paying up front will increase my chances of getting one of the units in the first batch.

If anybody knows anything about the price or other details on the optional coils, please share!

No, there will always be better prices for the asking.

Not expecting anything.
So far, from what I have read and what I see by it's hardware format, it seems like it will suit some of my other detecting wants.
Having always had the "philosophy" in my adult life of "you can't ride a bicycle by reading a book on the subject". You gotta get on the bicycle and learn to ride it, regardless of what might happen. I treat metal detectors in the same way.
Until it's in MY hand and I use it, it'll mean little.

Minelab has never let me down in the way their product performs and their support for it to date has been outstanding.

Yep. 800. Very interested in this mid-range priced detector and provided it works well and is actually water resistant will compliment my etrac and Racer 2. Will it replace either of those or perhaps both? I have no idea. In the past, I had a pretty narrow area of interest for my metal detecting and kept the detector I thought did that the best. More recently I’ve seen how having detectors with complimentary strengths can find what my single detector missed. Will the Equinox be that detector that can change hats as needed? Will I be able to go back to a single detector and a backup/loaner?

Good questions.

Was told I am number 4 when they are released to the dealers, so maybe I will see the 800 before Christmas. I ordered from another dealer the new Pro Find 35 from a different dealer and was told maybe l may see it later in Nov. This is the only way I will be able to tell if this detector is for me and do what I want it too, just got to have patience like my other Minelabs to learn and understand it.
I also ordered in a second Equinox from a club member that wants to become a Minelab dealer in the spring to fill his first initial order as I feel it is going to be a great detector so my wife will have a second detector too.
