    I thought it to be a good video. All VDI numbers can bounce around on any machine I believe, depending on a number of factors, and the numbers are good as a reference point, but "sound" is the key, and I think many rely on that to a greater degree. Some will bash any new machine no matter what, for whatever their reasons might be. I find it hard to criticize anything I have never used, be it a Garrett Ace 150, or up to a Minelab 30-30. If a person insist that "Their" machine can do everything the "EQ" can do, so why waste your money, simple answer? don't buy one. There is no "Perfect" detector, a "Perfect" detector for me would be one that could show me a picture of what's in the ground, and then with a press of a button, suck the target out of the ground and stick to the coil. Speaking for myself only, I do have a great interest in the EQ 800, it could replace my X-Terra 70, Garrett AT Pro, and the Minelab Safari, kind of like having all three rolled into one. Enough then from me.

    Yeah your right, numbers can bounce around....I don't use a screen to determine whether to dig or not, I dig everything except iron...but I do like the numbers to give me a good idea what Im scooping...I know if it is a zincoln, penny, dime or quarter...of course it could be anything but 90% of the time its what you think it is...no one detector does it all but they are getting closer to making one with every new detector...Equinox may not do it all but its going to do a lot... 3 pound waterproof multi freq with screen and you don't open it for batteries....wake me up Im dreaming.

    Just like the car you bought 4 years ago cannot do what the car you bought this year can do...it's called progress...

    Yes Casper. This machine brings some unique aspects the others may not. Its ability to find smaller gold IN the water. It may not out perform them depth wise and recent drops are just a matter of getting the coil over the target. Finally, a light weight water machine from ML with the ability to switch to single freq on the dry sand that are more favorable to small gold. You have to admit....... the price is a big draw too. $500 less than the Xcal without doing some needed mods. On the up side Casper...... Fisher is working on a PI that MAY make it out by the end of the year.... that maybe a game changer.

    Fisher’s PI is based on the AquaManta - developed in France by Alexandre Tartar, who is now a Fisher employee.

    Beach PI with iron ID/reject. Short pulse delay for tiny gold.

    Available ?? Fisher says it is complete electronically, just needs the mechanical package designed and produced, plus development testing and field testing - this year - maybe not.

    Here’s a French language video where Alexandre and his pals show off the prototype

    Now as far as the 600...

    It is a 4 Frequency- (Multi, 5kHz, 10kHz, 15kHz)

    Excal 2 = is BBS with 17 freqs... (1.5kHz – 25.5kHz)... with an RCB.

    Now.. the 800 has a 6 Frequency (Multi, 5kHz, 10kHz, 15kHz, 20kHz, 40kHz)

    And not sure if either of the Equinox's have an RCB.

    As far as I can tell... the main things that are the "draw" on the EQ's...

    Finding tiny chains
    Cost... relatively cheap.
    lighter and more compact.

    But...

    Where are the "sacrifices" made ?
    Overall and long term.

    I wanna see RING tests BURIED.
    Various karats... various depths.

    Screw tiny chains IMO. :P

    I might add...

    Far more rings are lost than any other jewelry IMO.
