Got to agree with ya Dig. I got my Pro shortly after they came out. Hunted in all conditions. A battle ship it is. Now where I roam there's not a whole lot of gold jewelry around, but through the years it has gotten it's share along with Silver. And of course can slaw.Earlier this year I found four 1800's coins and a dozen musket and mini balls plus several other Civil War relics in a nearby field with my At Pro. Someone told me to get a Nox 600 and hunt it again so I did. I hunted that field 4 times and only thing I found was a clad dime. The soil is really loose and I was thinking there would be deeper finds. I was disappointed and have since sold the 600 although I did find 2 gold rings hunting school yards with it.
He was also running 5 and 6 for recovery which are not the best the nox has for looking at deep targets , but do much better unmasking shallower targets,,,, although i did once recover a barber quarter at 14 inches with recovery on 4.I like David a lot (the guy who made the video above). However, I disagree with his commentary. By the numbers that were showing up on the Equinox, 8, 9, 10, and some 13s and 14s, the Equinox identified that target as a deep non-ferrous low to mid conductor. If that had been a dime the tones and numbers would have been much higher using 50 tones. Since he gave the two choices as a nickel or dime he should have been able to call it easily. I don’t know why he didn’t.
The Vista X (me being a Tesoro fan) looks like a great beep and dig detector. I don’t know anything about it but I assume that David had it in some form of threshold based all metal mode which the Equinox simply does not have. I am not surprised that the Vista X gave a cleaner response if it was in All Metal.
2 is 1, 1 is none.Ronstar, I've read the quote about one gun in gun magazines before but I've always felt one gun was probably stuck in a drawer and hardly ever used. I'm wrong on a lot of things so maybe this also. As a multiple owner, blessed wit his own range, I practice a lot.
