I was #2 on my dealers list and he is only getting one with about a month wait.
I am getting my deposit back and see how this detector pans out now so I will just keep using my CTX.
I wish you guys all luck.

My dealer said the same thing today.. We may have the same dealer. lol

I'm gonna stay in the queue for mine, another month is not a big deal at this point.



To many detectors, not enough places to hunt.....

My distributor said that Minelab was hoping to get most of the orders filled this month.
Too, on my list, I have a few prepaid but I tell everyone if they can get one before I have one available for them, to get it and just let me know. That way there is no money for me or the customer to worry about. Richard .

Thanks Richard. You made it pretty clear that Minelab is expected to have most of the pre-orders filled by the end of the month; I am amazed that here we are, with machines "on the move," and people are STILL so mad that they are "cancelling." This is NOT the time to cancel, of ALL times...but who am I to judge?

I would just urge folks to be level-headed, and don't act hastily, on emotion, or you may end up regretting it, later...

Just my opinion. To each his own. I'll be happy whenever mine shows up...

Sounds like a dealer that wants to keep what he gets and sell for higher profit on ebay.
I assume it is a dealer you cant mention on here or you
would post who it is so everyone who ordered from them would know the same as you.
I am number 2 on my dealer list and my buddy is number 1
and we both paid upfront at our option not required.
I was afraid I would blow my money before it got here.
My dealer has not said anything about only 1 detector or exactly when he is getting them
and minelab as a company needs to get on here and clarify if dealers are only getting 1 or not.
We need facts not rumors.

]I guess you didn't read my second post,I didn't make the call and reconsidered after I realised how unfair that would be,im sure quite a few dealers would take me up on that if i was to stoop that low! but forturnely i came to my senses,I could afford to pay A LOT more to secure it on day one IF i really wanted it that bad..but I considered other people who are ahead of me.. after the initial disappointment on the allotment of machines went away and the reality of what I said sunk in i retracted my statement,I'm pretty disappointed with myself for even thinking about it,I'm number 4 on the list with my guy and I can live with that.just so you know money is no object to me but morality is priceless!

Orders . . .
Posted by: Andy Sabisch

Minelab had hoped to have the Equinox out months ago and one thing led to another until we are in February with units starting to trickle out of Malaysia. With dealers being notified that they can expect 1 - 3 units depending on what had been pre-ordered, that leaves a large void of what people want versus what p[people will be able to get in the near term.

It is great that Minelab HOPES to have the pre-orders cleared by the end of the month but realistically, there is a large number of units that need to be built and shipped to meet that demand.

We all hope that they are caught up by the end of the month but time will tell as days are ticking by and the first shipment has not hit the dealers hands let alone the customers hands yet

Monday I am going to check where I am in the pecking order for delivery. I have waited this long. A couple more weeks will not make or break me. I would like to see more videos from the beta testers now that the Nox is actually shipping. If they have more video available to post that is.
