If you have a TID chart that you developed from your using the EQUINOX, post it as a response to this post.
If you have a question regarding one of these charts or TID's in general, please make a new post and let this be used only for TID charts.
Thanks. HH Randy

After more than 46-years of detecting, and having owned dozens of different detectors, I've come to the conclusion that maintaining success in the field is largely dependent on three things..... choice of site, acquiring a proper skill set for the detector and the detector itself..... in that order. Research, practice and persistence. There are no substitutes.

As we all begin the learning curve with these new Detectors, let’s do something to help us all. Please post your Id numbers with mode and item depth as you begin to make finds. I think this may help us all in the long run. I’ll start with my limited experience so far:
I will add as I get it more. Please feel free to add to it as well!
Zinc cent, 20, Park 1, 3”
Clad dime, 26, Park 1, 4”
Can slaw, 15, Park 1, 3”
Ring style pull tab, 15, Park 1, 3”

In the gold mode if one can modify tones and volumes of say a 5 tone response, that would give spectacular results. At the beach a person usually digs every repeatable tone, every! All in order to find gold. So, I did some buried nuggets and flakes (.3g 3 flakes, .8 g rough surface picker and 1.3 g flat round picker) in zip lock bags at 3-4", plus a long thin gold chain and a smaller bracelet that was heavier gold, lengthwise at the same rough depth. The 800 would not pick them up in any mode or program except gold! And in those two modes hit it loud and clear! I had it on manual sense at 25, 5 tones, 1 reaction, and tried every sweep speed and direction. Nothing from any of the other programs or modes. I could get a hit most of the time on a very small gold ring, about .3 g at 4" in the other modes. They would not hit in beach modes! So, I think the depth is the real issue on small gold chains and if they are balled up or stretched out. Also, seems the smaller the target the lower the number.

If I were to do beach hunting, I think I would just stick it in the gold mode vs beach, and see if i could somehow get rid of the iron targets and dig everything.

The question is, would the Equinox in Gold Mode work on a wet beach??? I think not....but I may be wrong.

I'm going to ask if these (800) charts are very close to what a 600 would register ?
Thanks!

Since both models use the same range of -9 to 40, specific TID numbers should be the same. HH Randy

Very interesting, as I only look for gold jewelry on the beach. I haven't had a chance to do any real gold prospecting yet.
You start out by writing that it would be great if the gold modes had five tones. You don't say why. Then you sort of change subjects. Then you conclude by writing that on the beach, you would prefer to use the gold mode, even tho it does not have five tones.
Kind of confusing. But interesting. I guess the only thing to do would be to use beach mode, see how that works, and then try gold mode on the beach, and see how that works.
You didn't mention if you were running at 20 kHz or 40 kHz in the gold mode. I suspect that you were running at 40 kHz. The beach mode can not run at 40 kHz. This is why you could only pick up your gold targets in gold mode.
I think that Minelab made a mistake by not allowing 40 kHz to run in beach mode.
Park mode does allow you run at 40 kHz. It might be best to try running at 40kHz in Park mode, and just try to deal with the heavy mineralization of beach sand the best that you can. A 15" coil would help with depth. I think that using Park mode on the beach would cause a big reduction in depth. So a 15" coil would be needed if you want to use Park mode on the beach. Just my suspicions...

These TIDs look about right. But remember, TIDs are just estimates.

On my 600, an 1864 two cent piece comes in at a VDI of 22-24.
