Yes the Equinox.There are so many videos about the machine so its kind of hard ? Your talking about the Equinox leaking not the Manticore.?
It seems some leak and some may not or may later I hope they solved the problem with the new machineYes the Equinox.
There was a live stream yesterday about the Manticore.
I removed my comments there because of the way I worded the comments.
But I just checked and there are some comments there that are referring to the same statements I heard and didn't like.
I agree, some leak and some don't.It seems some leak and some may not or may later I hope they solved the problem with the new machine
Looks like she had better open up her ears to what the customers are saying!But but but it can't be, surely if this were real Minelab would know about it. And they don't because the Minelab representative said she had never heard of it leaking there.
(Being sarcastic for those that didn't know)
I guess they can't admit but so much. I'll put this in as gentle terms as I can.I had 4 units fail, first was a power button, second was a battery failure and 2 that leaked. The last pod they sent me hasn't leaked yet and I may never take it in the water again because the warranty has expired. I was never told where the problem was.
I saw the video Wednesday when that statement was made. That statement plus another is what reignited the subject. I just hate it when people don't get what they expect when they spend their money. Something should have been done to make this right but it never will. Taking the machines as a trade in on the Manticore would have made things right. I have 2 Equinox 800 that I will try to sell soon.I dont want to raise your blood pressure, any higher than it already is, so I will not post a link to the video....
But there is a new video just released yesterday, where she wont say how many units were sold, but she does say that only .01% were returned due to leakage!
You're an honest man jayhop.I saw the video Wednesday when that statement was made. That statement plus another is what reignited the subject. I just hate it when people don't get what they expect when they spend their money. Something should have been done to make this right but it never will. Taking the machines as a trade in on the Manticore would have made things right. I have 2 Equinox 800 that I will try to sell soon.
When I do sell them I'm definitely going to tell any potential buyers about the flooding problems and the coil ears breaking. So I'm definitely expecting to take a hit on the selling price.
You can always get a legend for $400 less and they don’t leak. Put the $400 you saved towards the manticoreI guess they can't admit but so much. I'll put this in as gentle terms as I can.
Think about it: They have this machine advertised waterproof to 10 feet. THAT IS A BIG SELLING POINT.
I think my opinion that MOST units actually used under water for an extended period of time do leak is very possible. Again, not wading but actually submerged. There are too many reports and videos of individuals having multiple units leak.
So, this machine is not performing as expected in the waterproof department.
So, even though most people will never submerge their detector, they bought a detector that they were expecting to be waterproof to 10 feet.
It would be nice if we could trade in the Equinox 800 for maybe a credit on a machine that hopefully is actually waterproof.
Ok, I'm done
