Equinox 600

I pulled the trigger on the Minelab Equinox 600. I did an air test today and the Equinox is about an inch to an inch a half deeper than the T2+. I know an air test is not really accurate but it is what it is. The T2+ is a great machine so I'm going to hit places with the T2+ and then go back with the Equinox 600 and see if I find more targets.

Just remember, there is no 'perfect' detector and we should, and can, learn more as we go. Therefore, do just the opposite as well. Work a dedicated area with the Equinox 600 first, then spend an equal amount of time, using similar s4ttings and search coils, with the T2+. We can always learn something.

Air test are underrated if a detector can't do it in an air test with no resistance how will it detect better in the ground with resistance?
With air test you have to watch out for EMI it can and will effect the test.

Looks like you have a good tandem going there! I am using the T2+ with 5x10 teamed with a Legend 6 inch DVD for inland jewelry hunting along with a simplex with sp24 coil.The larger 11inch coils don't get much use. I'm waiting for a new 5x9 or 8.5 coil for the legend. Good luck and HH!

What modes did you use? What disc settings? T2 has a huge boost at about 40 or 50 disc. Did you try boost or boost AM on the T2 or did you leave everything at start up default?

I would say it depends on how well it deals with the ground's resistance and EMI in the area..

When I did the air test I had the disc set at 0, are you saying the T2 will get better depth with the disc set at 40-50?

I like your idea.
