Minelab release date....

Who else is sick of all the hype over this machine.I will admit i was sucked into the frenzy early on when it was first released in UK. But then it took too long with out a firm release date and blah blah blah. I and few others that I know got sick of waiting and hearing about this or that,,,, I got a Whites MX Sport for a sweet price due to the owner selling to buy a EQ.

Pure speculation but why release info on the new machine then so long to actual release of machine, something wrong with it? Is not living up to the hype? I am not bashing just frustrated and maybe little concerned with the long wait.

I don't pay much attention to the release date hype. If they came out today, I would not be able to use it regularly for three or four months because of weather. I do believe there will be some outrageous deals on used detectors in the next couple of months.

With all the features I'm looking for in the EQ, I have no issue with the time frame or the wait.. I have a CTX that's doing just fine, so I'm not really missing out at this point. I seriously doubt that there's anything wrong with the machine, I think it's just part of the process to fine tune it before turning it loose. Good luck with the MX , I hear it's a fine machine.

even if the hw/sw is 'Golden Master' now they will be smart waiting until actual production line versions are very well tested and the
production lines run smoothly, etc.

the demand built up for the EQ is unprecedented and production needs to be optimal to keep up.

they need to closely match the way Apple does it...

I'm ok waiting, and will be able to test the unit once I finally get one but not dig anything till March/April, lol

I intend to 'pre-find' some good targets for later.

I'm also very pleased Minelab can dole out a SW update or 2 if required for internet based updating. Very nice insurance...

cheers

Why would you let your Blood Pressure get high over the release date of a Metal Detector?
It is the Holidays go enjoy them with Family.
Go take a walk it is a great time to get out in the wilderness.
Your old Detectors still find stuff go take them outside and have some fun.
Only HYPE I am sick of is the threads complaining about the HYPE.

Yup I agree with all of you. Got a great deal on a 16.5 inch Detech coil for the Explorer 2 to cover more ground on the beach. I am done waiting.

I am happy with what i know so far and there is an announcement on or about the end of the week i have been told . Maybe the release date ? I reckon New Years day . If so then the machine is in production and maybe the first batches might well be on the ships to their dealers. We'll see.
The Equinox will work in all areas i want to search and my order stays .
I certainly wouldn't buy a machine that wouldn't match it and it seems some will or have .
This machine will be as close to top end as you can get without paying top end prices .

People who have been calling ML asking for the release date have recently been told "something will be made public this week", I would expect the release date info coming very shortly

I have high hope for this detector and when ever it show up it will be like a second Christmas for many of us. Some people remind me of the kids at Christmas always wanting things right now and when they get them they are not happy with what they have.



Merry Christmas to all and may all have a wonderful Christmas with your family
