Super trashy lots of low blips!
I'm really liking the Equinox and it pinpoints very well and id's great!
Thanks Metal, I'll try making a few adjustments too as I get more familiar with the machine.

Agreed! I like them too!

Thanks C, Not sure if Romy took a picture- I sure didn't do any selfies.

Thanks DD, Well, I think it is a good machine. Too early to say if it is great although I like a lot about it already.

Thanks Z, I ventured out a little in the salt water but not much since the tide wasn't great and neither was the weather. Just getting over being sick for a week!

Thanks brncofan, I do like the Nox. The target ID numbers are something new for me and add a new dimension to detecting. I'd like to find some small gold with it to prove that I know how to use it right.

Since I don't have any other land machine the Nox will definitely fill a void for me. Not sure I remember how to be a dirt hunter!

Thanks Slim, I know about your ability to get the most out of your Sovereigns. I kind of feel that way about my Dual Field but I've got to figure out how to get the most out of the Nox!
