None, have a Racer 2 and Fors Core. They will do everything I need them to do now and in the future. If Makro comes out with a waterproof machine, I prob will get that. Have some places I could play around in on those hot July/Aug summer days.

I don't have an all weather detector to use in inclement weather so I am picking up an equinox 800 to add to my Racer 2 and etrac. The Racer 2 and etrac are very capable for what I use them for and hopefully the equinox, as a weather resistant all purpose detector, will be a solid complement to these other two.

The nice thing is that when I'm out ghost towning with Gregg and Monte and the rest of the crew going to the WTHO's, I know there is a car load of spare detectors and coils between everybody to use in an emergency.

Definitely the Equinox. I have been waiting sooo long for something that is truly new tech not a rehash of VLF. Based on the features alone this thing pretty much has it all.

The equinox 800 is completely waterproof it will replace my etrac because it is waterproof and a lot lighter! and im keeping my Deus!

Please let us know how well the Equinox does especially in trashy areas. I too have been looking at that detector but will wait for reports to come in.

Huh? :shrug:
I'm curious why you went from a V3i to a VX3? Is it because the VX3 is less complicated?
What are the primary differences?
I just got a V3i and have found it to be an awesome machine! I've been going over this small area of a park with
my Deus (which is a fantastic detector by the way) and my E-trac, and Detech Chaser and then with my V3i.
The V3i finds goodies that the others don't. Now one caveat: It is **possible** I just didn't get my coil over the goods
with the other detectors prior to going over them with the V3i. The best test would be to do a comparison with each
target with each machine. Sometimes I will take both the E-trac and V3i or Detech and V3i out and compare targets.
The Detech is awesomely DEEP even with the 9" coil! But the V3i is also very deep and very good in trash with the stock D2 10" coil.

Put your detector on a remote controlled toy that can travel in sand and have your headphones be wireless. When the coil gets over the object, remotely stop the toy, get up, dig the gold,
sit back down and start again.

You hit the Nail right on the head. I wanted a new Detector so I traded my V3i for the ETRAC. Loved the ETRAC but started seeing I had not increased my finds and I really missed that wonderful screen. I really did not want another complicated V3i with all those filters, correlate mode, boost, and all the other adjustments that had me confused quite often. I wanted the V3i back without the complications, thus VX3. Still waiting on it but I think I will enjoy it. I still have an ETRAC by the way.

I just got my next and last detector this past summer, I got the E-trac and even as a beginner my silver coin count has went way up. So I may get another coil or two but I am staying with the E-trac.

I am glad I tried the E-trac.
