After today and how the CTX performed I have decided I don’t even need to try the Equinox. Having horseshit like this wasting my time has soured me for the last and final time. Goodbye Equinox and all to do with it.

So it seems that some have come to the end of their rope and must bid goodbye.

Don’t forget about us. Maybe drop into the forum once in a while and poke us with a stick and make sure we’re still alive.

Sorry to hear you give up guys. I can understand the frustration, and as a long time Minelab loyalist, I feel your pain. I guess I'm just not there yet. I'm trying to look at it like this; Minelab is endeavoring to come out with a brand new technology, and at the same time, try to implement the suggestions of their field testers, to make it the best it can be. Surely, they've run into some things which have cost them unexpected time..... Yes, Detectival was most likely unveiling the technology a bit too early in the process, but can you imagine the buzz that they must be experiencing internally when they see just how much better this technology is! f course they were eager to show all of us just how big a change was coming. Perhaps a little too eager.... I for one will forgive the company which has brought me all of my best finds, THROUGH their previous technological advances. Who else could have brought us BBS, FBS, and now Multi-IQ? And how different would recent detecting history be without them.

Nice one Rich :thumbup:
It's good to see some humor amidst all the cyberfustration over a temporarliy unobtainable product that has yet to prove itself. I hope the initial release of the EQX is met with good reports and no software issues. The physical build quality ought to be solid given Minelab's past experiences. If it is everything in the field that is promoted and anticipated then the wait is fine with me. If I have to wait because I didn't preorder that's just fine as there ought to be a good knowledge base formed by the time I can obtain one. My interest in the EQX is because it may allow me the option to carry fewer machines on trips further from home and be fully ready for "whatever" detecting environment I happen upon working with the collection I have and use.
How do we judge sour grapes if we have not yet tasted them?

I usually don't take part in loyalty discussions, but I agree with NOXaholic. I've never owned, used or even seen in person a minelab machine. But, the EQ just checks all the boxes for me. I was looking for a machine to use in water, mostly freshwater, but I do usually go to the beach for vacation and that's where the multi IQ will come in handy. I'm also eager to try the prospecting mode with it's high frequencies because there's supposed to be gold in the streams around where I live in NC. I have no problem waiting a little longer. I mean, isn't that what most of the complaining is about?

I wish everyone who claims to have quit on the Eq before it is even released would actually do so. Go back to whatever machine's forum you are promoting (long timers) or schilling for (johnny come latelys- yes we know what you are doing) and try to be helpful there. Constantly complaining about something you've never actually seen and maybe even never intend to touch strikes me as quite a sad way to live.
Get out and HUNT some treasure and enjoy you life!

I no longer care when it comes out . But it would be nice before my last Equinox !
My ET and Explorers find lots so i will just wait .

But it does tell Minelab 1 thing . They are going to have to get their skates on if they want to keep the loyalty of people that have said they are getting 1 .
Garrett / Macro / XP and others have machines that even though they might be "obsolete" they still find the goods .

Upsetting Dealers and detectorists like they have will or could cost them sales . I say Dealers as i have already been told that in the UK Dealers are finding it hard to sell machines with the pending Equinox release . That isn't fair to the Dealers .
Minelab are very lucky that there isn't another machine that can do what the Equinox is reported to be capable of . For its price range that is.



Uses = Minelab E.Trac , Minelab Equinox 800 , Macro Multi Kruzer , Minelab X.Terra 705 , Garrett Probes , Gray Ghost/ Nugget Busters

I wish idiotic posts regarding the supposed release of this or that would quit so we can (you can) concentrate on real facts. Oh yeah,hey Champ! I found 3 silver coins yesterday,digging through absolutely rock hard tundra in Wisconsin! You know WHY? Because I’m freaking DIE HARD brother! I hunt EVERY second I can! Even if it appears to be insurmountable!
This absolute garbage bait click stupidity isn’t doing anything for me man! Whaddaya think I hunt 5 times a year? In fact,I’m going out in the snow...RIGHT NOW!:smile:

Minelab has about a month and I'm cancelling my order and buying a deus. Just the facts. They released the info too early on the machine and now we have waited too long the excitement is turning into anger and frustration, and I am a die hard minelab user. If they can't get it together ill just jump on the xp train.

By the time it comes out the new technology will be old technology :P
