Laplander,

I’m hoping You are going to delete ALL OF THE existing pages of posts with all of the speculation and arguing once the Equinox hits the field so that we have a clean slate from which to proceed?

Hopeful,

Rich

Eh, they will just fade away, buried under all the new posts about which frequency works best , advanced notching methodology, air and separation test comparisons, and hopefully lots of cool finds and stories about revisiting well hunted sites with the Equinox..

Sometimes, I revisit the early days of the CTX forum just to reminisce about our first days with it..

I think it will be fun looking back and seeing which posters were spewing out their rear once the Eq comes out and we have real information to discuss.

I think there should be a list of everyone who posted attacks and false claims, and make it a sticky. If people want to be trolls, keep it up for all to see. Trolls dont like the light.

How would you rate the Equinox? I am not only talking price. Is it a top of the line detector with a mid range price? Or is it something that stands all by it's self? I understand it has different technology. I am a little con fussed by the way this one is being marketed. To be honest, I would not run out and buy it until the dust has settled. I have a feeling I would put it between my Safari and my CTX 3030. as far as Minelab goes.

Minelab has been using carbon-fiber shafts for a while now, so I would expect the same on this. I doubt they went backwards to steel, the detector is too light for that, but they have never used plastic.

Only the lower rod is non-metal on the Racer2, like 99% of all detectors. At least get your facts straight before trashing other vendors :rant:

The mid-level pricing for this machine is quite puzzling......... Considerably less than the CTX and ETrac but with similar or better features???

I've never afforded the price tag of the CTX or ETrac which leaves wondering if those 2 machines will still "rule the roost" over the EQ? Is there a comparison chart of the 3 machines features?

Is the EQ price tag aimed to pull current MD'ers over to ML? (I.E - pull over the ATPro people with a better machine at the same price).

I understand ML is very quiet on this machine and little is known about it so I'm guessing the majority of my questions won't be answered till the machine is available, but is there a comparison chart depicting the features of their products?

Yes, somewhere on the ML website they have a feature comparison chart but I don't think its going to answer your question on price.

My guess on that is because this is a hobby niche. Theres not a lot of people who can afford $1500 - $2500 for a hobby item but there are lot who can that $600 - $900 price. It makes perfect business sense to lose X number of sale at $2500 but pick up XXX sale of $900 items.
