    First vid of the equinox in wet salt sands of Hawaii

    Short video and nothing in the water but seems pretty stable in that harsh environment.

    That video was already posted a few days ago. We're waiting for a more comprehensive test and a head to head competition with other machines.

    Magnetic volcanic sand in Hawaii would make it chatter.

    Solid video. Looking at those waves, the water is where the good stuff is hiding. Assume you're in Beach mode and was hoping it would ignore/disc out battle caps. You could grid that small beach in a few hrs. How did ya get one so early?

    Started with a dead battery. Looked like it came right out of the box. I'm guessing that was a 15 minute hunt ... ie: review in exchange for product.

    I agree..... that thing was singing and those digits were bouncing on what seemed to be a shallow target. I know he said he was running hot but ... id got a lot more from this maybe if he had run it stable....... he might of even found something lol. I also got a chuckle when he said he became a CONTRIBUTOR.... with his Go-Pro.

    I have been running the "tank".. CZ21... and it's heavy... but a great machine. Went back to my AT Pro to hunt the dry sand and I gotta say I hated it.. pro mode volume on depth is a stupid feature, and std mode gave so many false targets it was almost unusable.

    AT Pro is up for auction. CZ-21 stays.
    Your AT Pro was falsing in the dry sand?

    Only at one particular stretch of beach where it's loaded with those little iron mineral flakes... they make my machine bounce all over the place.

    I know what you mean...there was one beach that had an area I wouldn't hunt with my AT in the water because it hade flakes of iron...about half the size of a dime and bigger...they would bounce between mid and low tone...my CZ21 doesn't pick them up at all and that's a good thing.
