New multi frequency machine

The N-M multi frequency machine is already 2 years late. If it comes out in September, it is too late for folks closer to the northern border to use during the fall and winter season. Then again, I don't want it if it isn't 100% ready to use. And I wouldn't want one to take to a Caribbean island and have it break down. If they don't get a move on, a Nox 800 or its next iteration may be on the Christmas list for many people.

Let's not forget the Nox has a camlock shaft system which is outdated and the coils are notorious for their ears breaking, something you think they would have learned with the Xterra series. Minelab just doesn't listen to their customers like Nokta Makro does. You would think they would upgrade the Nox shaft to a similar system like their Vanquish series but instead they just keep making them with an outdated shaft system so if you want a decent shaft you have to buy an aftermarket one. Nokta Makro listened to their customers even after they had already sold thousands of Simplex's and offered updates to keep customers happy. I can't wait to see this Multi frequency machine, then we will see what Minelab does when they have a serious competitor.

I know what Minelab will do- introduce a next gen.upgrade to the Equinox that will be technically superior, with build quality improvements in shaft, coil ears, ergonomics and waterproofing. This won’t happen until N/M sales have a noticeable effect on Equinox sales. Not sure if pricing will be as competitive. I’ll bet it’s well into its design phase now.

I’m wondering if the N/M SMF in test stage now is going to have a full TID range (0-100)or compressed TID range (-9-40) like equinox. If it is full range 0-100, and that would be my guess, it will be all the more appealing.
