Yawn. What a bunch of complaining over nothing. If you are so impatient, go buy another detector. I'll be happy to tell how good the equinox is when they finally come out.

You said this already. As for complaining over nothing, I disagree. Some people have $900 invested. If you can call that "nothing", then good for you. To me this is a huge amount of money. So I have a right and a reason to be impatient.

Anyone who put down $900 for a detector on blind faith is lacking in critical thinking skills. Only a thief of a company would require payment for something they cant even order yet. If you put down $$$ and its bothering you, get a refund.

I would be very careful calling one of the paid sponsors on here "a Thief".

This right here is why I'm afraid to start a thread......seems it turns in to this....maybe I don't understand what this forum is about...probly get nailed just for putting this on..

Hey man be like me, I could care less what some of these “cyber tough guys” say think or do. I have a right to voice my thoughts on a Detecting forum about a detector so I do so fearlessly. They don’t bother me at all, don’t let them bother you.

Seems to me some folks are just uptight and if you say anything against the view they hold it's time to attack. It's actually stupid. Opinion and discuss is what makes progress. I see it this way if minelab can pay someone to jump out of plane and launch preorders on the same day plus put out videos on the brains behind this new tech. Launch a video introducing the machine make a blog, website, fliers etc then they sure as hell can give an update on delivery. It's not complaining to simple say hey what's the deal tells us something. Lots of us have a machine or funds tied up in the pre-order process. So, if that makes some yawn or others feel need to say for 8 millionth time " I will wait till it's out before I get one" I say please do just do it quietly cause I am sick of reading it. I think a release date is reasonable request 3 months in.

Has the disease of ME! RIGHT NOW! ME! that inflicts so many younger folks now caught a foothold in the older generations? Too many people live to complain when their every want isn't immediately met.
(and that's an observation not a complaint! :detecting:)

Take your time ML, get it Right before release. I'd like to have it now, but I'd rather have it Right.

Umm, if I had posted this October 1st, then maybe here would be some validity to your reply. 3 months is not “right now”. That’s a quarter of a year. Plenty long enough time to announce a release date. “Right now” c’mon really?

The field testers likely found an issue that is taking longer than expected to fix and get into production. Also the pre-orders have been larger than expected and I heard that they are manufacturer more machines than originally planned for so that pre-orderers don't have to wait a long time after the first units ship out to dealers.

Minelab has been very open about sharing info about the Equinox which they could only do once they announce the detector. When they announced it, they provided the best estimate they could but it was only an estimate not an iron clad guarantee. I would much rather that they take their time and ship a detector that is everything they want it to be with all known issues addressed than getting one by some arbitrary ship date that ,might have problems with it. Of course the folks clamoring for it to ship right away are often times the ones that complain the loudest if the machine has bugs in it.

This same thing happened to First Texas when they announced the T2 and then took the time to make sure it was right before shipping. They took all kinds of heat about a vaporware detector and now they are very tight lipped about any new machines and we are the losers because we don't find out anything about their new machines until after they ship.

This sort of whining is going to cause Minelab to start doing the same thing.

Minelab only exists with sales and you only get sales with customers. If Minelab is going to be angered about "whining" then they picked the wrong business to be in. They've likely spent 3-5 years working on the Equinox, 6 months to a year to plan how they were going to launch it at Detectival in September and then they go stealth on a release date. That's not going to get them a JD powers customer service award.

For a lot of us the Equinox release is becoming like trying to find escobars millions. ML isn't perfect but they could handle this a whole lot better.

This is actually quite a funny post! Have you actually read through your own words? As was just stated above, this is a forum. This is a place to discuss various viewpoints, especially opposing views. So while you claim your "right" to air an opposing view, you complain about anyone who opposes YOUR point of view.

You are correct, saying "hey, tell us something" isn't a complaint. People saying "tell us a date OR ELSE". or saying "Sell us the detector NOW or I'm going to buy another brand", and the many other similar statements is much more than complaining. It's the typical passive-aggressive threats employed by the weak.

FYI - nobody has a RIGHT to post anything here. The US Constitutional amendment of freedom of speech is a freedom from governmental reproach to your statement. Private industry is free to restrict any and all speech they want. Findmall is a private business. It's owner or appointed persons can delete anything they want, or they can delete anybody's account if they don't like what any of us have to say.

We all have the option to preorder or not. I used PayPal 6 months interest free for this so I would not be out anything just in case the release is dragged out. If after 5+ months there is still no Equinox, I will just cancel my order and be out nothing. I just wanted a spot in line so I could get the detector ASAP after release. I don't feel Minelab has to provide a date of release until they are ready to. Eventually it will be out for us all to use, until then, I will check the forums and Minelab for information and use my CTX for hunting.

“Snowflakes” I’m 46 years old there sport. I’m far from a snowflake. I started this thread, all I am saying is people have money and Detectors tied up in preorders and trades and what not an some information would be nice. A guy jumping from a plane doesn’t mean squat to me at all, like I said, give us a date whether it be 2 weeks or 2 months just let us know. And tools like you and your hero “Jason” are why fewer and fewer people come to these forums. Always some people like you too “trying” to be condescending, neither of you or your opinions mean squat to me, but lots of people shy away because of you tools. So good job, keep it up and you will have no forum to spread all of your “knowledge” lmao

Thank for the Constitution update but all I said was I am sick of the whinny bs like I will wait till they are out b4 I get one Everytime someone post anything good or bad. With the statement only fools rush out and buy them or my XYZ is better then this etc. Secondly, the one who seems to have issue with this post is you with your insulting jabs "yawn" followed by a slam that's not an opnion that's being rude. I have no objection to a difference of opinion and I never once said do this or else so maybe you should read that again. You can make a point even have a difference of opinion but insults and trying look superior by qouting a weak statement mascrading as Constitutional law coupled with threats of being banned is actually the joke.

you feel that "yawn" is insulting? wow. First of all, its not an "insult" its a statement of boredom and exasperation of yet another "I'm so tired of waiting" thread. Please show where "slammed" anyone. Please also show where I said YOU STATED. You seem to feel that every post is always directed AT you? There was a poplar song from 1972 about that. Masquerading as constitutional law? THAT is funny! Correcting people who throw out that they have "rights" to do this or that, rightly deserve a lesson. Lastly, where do you find threats of banning? You are seriously reaching there. The factual statement that ANY OF US can be removed for any reason or no reason isn't a threat, it's just the facts of life on an internet forum.

What else would you like to debate?

LOL, you prove my point again! You incorrectly call people people posting alternate viewpoints as condescending, yet calling those members "tools" is actually being condescending. So thank you for proving (again) that you are exactly the thing you are complaining about.

Well Jason first you quoted me so you directed your reply toward me. Maybe slam was the wrong word. You quote me then in that post go on and on and on about people's threats to by another machine and I have seen you post for along time and in many cases agreed with you and even added to your point. In this case I think you assumed the intent by the poster was whinny. However it was imo making a fair point. Then you weakly reference the Constitution which btw had zero to do with this thread. Thanks for stating the obvious about getting banned no one knew that nobody but you was smart enough to know the difference between private and public. I am not offended not at all. I am not a snowflake I am 44 not a liberal either in fact the polar opposite which btw also has NOTHING TO DO WITH THIS THREAD!!!. So, if your bored with as you say complaining which in some cases you are correct then don't read the forum. I choose to read the forum and will call out any one I want. If I get banned I don't care it's a forum and I have in no way violated the rules. So you good luck I for one know the nox will be great was 4th on my vendors list.
