There're issues or this machine would have been on the market long ago.

Not true. You walk into the a card game saying you hold a royal flush. You wait and bluff and play your hand when the timing is right. On the one hand, IMO, the had this tech sitting on the shelf waiting for the right moment.

The moment: The timing had to be just right for Minelab. When the sales of their flag ships dipped to a certain level. When the competition caught up to them(XP and Impact maybe a few others). When the EQ looks like it will be surpassed in a few years. When there would be a festival in England that would be the perfect place to showcase. When the price for components was low enough. As well as other factors, this is when they decided to release the EQ.

Lastly, the tech they yet to release is the stuff we are really wishing for..

Where will I be two years from now?

so if all posts are not we love minelab its classed as hatred ? pretty strong word to toss around not sure hate is a word I would use to describe any metal detector company some have better service than others, some have to keep shareholders happy.. etc.. so in turn have to spin some rather largish yarns to get us to reach in and pull it out , but I do have the final say in that matter, so ??

no emergency around here that I need a new detector for so just using what's been working for the last several years and if the urge comes in a year or 2 to buy another detector I may look at this one but probably be a better one by then, don't ya hate that :lmfao:

AJ

AJ,

The downside to your plan is that in a couple years the new technology will still not be good enough and before you know it you're going to be THAT REALLY OLD GUY hunting at the local park with the antique metal detector that the young guys only see on ebay when they search for Vintage Metal Detector

You could avoid all that by STEPPING INTO THE FUTURE today. :clapping:

not sure a updated 705 is going to bust the FBS detectors hump , happy to be wrong but pretty sure I have it covered ATM ...

unless it shoots gold out the end of it , to me its just another detector ....

I don't have an all weather detector. Was looking at some other offerings but I wasn't really stoked about either of them. The equinox checks the boxes for what i need and then some. It's not taking the place of anything I currently have, just filling a void.

I worry that A LOT of people out there appear to be DUMPING really good detectors like they had the plague or something. Buyers market at the moment.

if it works on wet salt and is 90% as good as FBS then people who only want one detector why not buy this new machine,

if it can do something the other machines I have cant then that would be great :biggrin: but no hurry here and prob just pick up a near new one a couple months after release if its smooth sailing and if it isn't wait a bit longer or something like that... no hurry

I don't think you read the first line of my post or else you are just trying to stir the pot. I NEVER said that people not espousing "I love minelab" are haters. I was referring to a phenomena I was witnessing on outside group. There was serious hatred going around. People coming in simply to say how crappy this was going to be. How stupid anyone who pre-orders are, etc. If you want to sit back and wait for reviews to roll in first, theres nothing wrong with that. But if I sat here and said YOU were an idiot for not ordering already or that YOU were stupid for not understanding what the possibilities of the features were, you would come away with the same opinion just from the other side.

I filter out, not even seeing things like that, which is the same thing I do for ads and pop ups on webpages. I could't even tell you what the ad was for or what the post said. I know whose opinions I respect and I read their posts. It is much easier to put your blinders on and focus on what is important. I am even annoyed at myself that I spent a couple minutes looking at this thread.
