Well said Todd. We remember the silver very well. The other stuff...not so much. I’ve had some kick ass audio and screen indications on my Explorer that I was SURE were silver coins which certainly weren’t silver, or even coins at all.There's no such thing as a silver tone. The tones are what you set them as. Yes your high tone may at times be a silver item but it will just as often be something else. Yes the Nox makes a happy tone over a good round target but it certainly doesn't mean its silver. The last Minelab unit that you could tell that you had a silver coin with was the Etrac and that wasn't a tone that was with the display as a silver coin would overhang the top right edge with a blue indicator. Now go ahead and argue with me, I will bring a handful of cash and we will bet on your silver tones. Get out there
Those are all excellent machines and really the only advantages to the Equinox over the ones you’ve mentioned are the multiple frequencies and the speed, these are both very big advantages. Adjacent targets are where it’s at. Advantage goes strongly to the Nox.I'm still on the fence, reservations, whatever you want to call it on the Nox. I am strictly a relic hunter and the Nox has not performed really any better than my X-Terras 70 or 705. I'll give it a few hunts more and carry both to compare. Nice thing is I will not loose much
money if I decide to ditch it. I'm picking up another X-Terra 70 on the cheap next week to add to my collection. I will have enough to have every size/type coil on it, plus have extras for when one goes south on me.
CT Todd..... But wouldn't you agree that running 50 tones would give an edge over just running 5 tones. You are a well-respected member on this forum so I'm just throwing this out there.You would like to claim that you can hear a difference but you can't. A tone is a tone plain and simple. The tone corresponds to a target ID number be that has been assigned by you in 2bins 5bins or 50 tones. Yes a clean coin signal sounds better but that doesn't signify Silver and if you've detected long enough you know it could still be a perfectly folded piece of something.
No magic here. No better headphones than the other guys no better ear for it. It's not a preference of a way to think except you like to fool yourself. Sometimes it will be gold, silver, copper or brass and mostly it will be crap. We are stuck digging it all. It's just part of the game.
Let's all hope for the machine that can tell us what's there. For now we will have to do with hey something is there.
