I run my equinox in park 2...sens 23...50 tones... you really have to listen to all the noise and pick thought it... the way the tones mix is a trip.... I do dig more nails than with the 3030 and Etrac... it’s just sorta fun to use the equinox...I almost think you have to dig some nails with this one... to get the Deep coins!
When swinging over 10-11 inch coins, while walking in a circle, in my test garden, They sound like iron for about 60% of the circle.
So deep nonferrous targets will sound like ferrous targets at the right angle.
I have also found this to be true while in the field.
As for the 3030, yes I dig more rusted square nails with the equinox by a long shot.
The advantage I have over some is that I mainly hunt farm fields and I can quickly dig and not have to worry about plugs in a yard or park.
And in my experience Park 1 gives a more stable ID than Park 2.
Park 2 seems to have a better audio report but on my 10 inch dime the VDI bounces into the single digits.
While the VDI in Park 1 jumps a little high but is more stable.
I know some will have a different experience but that's mine.
