Equinox 800 vs CTX 3030

Just wanted to share my latest video with everyone here. Nothing ground breaking but I have lots of live digs where I compared the targets using my ctx and equinox 800. I give some thoughts on both at the end of video.

After using both machines side by side for a few months I think that the equinox is a very good value for the price. The ctx does provide more info on targets in my opinion but the equinox will alert you to every target the ctx does. Maybe more in iron infested sites. The target trace on ctx is a huge plus and helps minimize trash targets. GPS function on ctx is very helpful in certain types of hunts as well. The equinox is much lighter and easier to swing for long hunts. The equinox is like a swiss army knife and does a lot if things well but isnt the best at any of them in my opinion. Overall I love both machines and plan on keeping them until something better comes along which could be a long time.

I plan to do some more side by side comparisons in different types of hunts like beach, heavy iron, and gold prospecting in the future so stay tuned!

Great video. Like the "real-targets" flagged tests. Thanx for taking the time to put that together. Also like the guitar intro music !

Thanks Tom!

I like to keep things as real as possible. I dig a lot of iffy targets with all my machines just to be safe. I also learn a lot about what the machines are telling me that way. Although it is hard to focus on the targets when recording so my instincts often go out the window while doing videos lol.
