Staying with the T2+

A friend of mine just bought a Mindlab Eqinox 600, he brought it over for me to check out and I wasn't impressed. I'm sure it's a good machine but he said it didn't even come with a manual so he had no clue how to operate it. I think he was hoping I could help him out with it but I was no help. I'm 56 and too old to be trying to figure out a new detector. The T2+ has found me lots of relics and I know how to use it so this was the icing on the cake for me I'm not stressing anymore about buying a new machine I staying with what I have.

Why would 56 be too old to figure out a new detector, if you can use a smart phone detectors are a cake walk.. While I liked my Nox 800 the build quality left a lot to be desired but as long as you dont throw them around or abuse them they hold up pretty well.
I just aquired to XP Orx machines one for me one for girlfriend and can say they are very impressive machines while not multi-freq I prefer them to the 800.

For just general coin hunting I prefer my Teknetics 8000 v6 or v4.
Im 61 next month so age is not a barrier to figuring out machines in imho.

Anyone can buy a new detector and find goodies. Not many "figure them out". I don't think using a smart phone is in any way comparable to all the "nuances" of using a detector. Will a new one find everything the old one will and more? Maybe a few experts might benefit but for most, I doubt it.

I owned 3 Vanquish 540 Pro Packs and an Equinox 800 with both the 11" and 6" coils.. They are OK detectors for for some applications, and if anyone likes them and uses them and enjoy them, that's fine with me. But mine are all gone and I don't plan on getting another Bing another.

I'll be 73 in less than 2 weeks, and I don't mind learning a detector if it is something that appeals to me, but I also know that the detectors in my outfit do a do a terrific job for their application choice be it coin hunting an urban area or real accounting an old site that has a lot of iron debris. I've had probably 6 of the different T2 models since they came out in 2006, comma but I let my last one go, a T2+, and the guy only wanted it with a 5" Double D coil so I so I still have a brand new NEL superfly in the box that's new that I need to part with

[QUOTE="Dig-a-holic":]I have had 2 Nox 600's and there won't be a third...lol. I rather hunt with my At Pro or G2+.[/QUOTE]
The mind lab equinox models are good good, they're just not good for me so, like you, there won't be another. I enjoy using my current primary models which include an F75+, Apex, XLT, Silver Sabre microMAX, Racer, FORS CoRe, FORS Relic and Bandido II microMAX.

I am about to turn 73 and do not mind learning a new detector IF it appears to match or better what I use.

Smart phones? I am using mine right now but do not understand all of what they can do. Besides. They are not so smart or educated. You push the microphone button and talk into them into them and they don't hear everything you say because they type incorrect words, or they miss spell words, or they will type a word or a whole sentence 2 times even though you only say it once.

I got a Teknegics Omega 8000 version 4 in April of 2010. Until the fall of of 2015, it was my favorite urban coin hunter to grab. They messed up the Dis. on the Ver. 5 & 6 and I had to track down another V.4 that I enjoyed with the round 7" Concentric coil.

There are a lot of very good detectors out there for most of us that can perform well and many 'newer' offerings are not really better for our needs.

I'm with you Bill. I can find anything the new machines can with my T2 and Detech Ultimate coil.
