    Excaliburs

    Has everyone except OBN and me abandoned their Excals for Noxes?
    Yes the nox is lighter and maybe deeper, But NOT as good in the water in my opinion.
    Opinions anyone? Tks Gayle

    I still have and will use the Excal whenever I venture into the surf beyond knee level depth. I simply have more faith in its waterproof housing. Do I prefer the EQX processor speed, weight and sensitivity? YES. Will I use it in the surf beyond knee level depth? NO.

    Just the view from my foxhole...

    Although I am curious... I have not pulled the trigger on a EQ yet.

    Yes... I call them EQ's... not "Nox".

    I think they may hit on smaller items is the only advantage... which would be cool to find for sure...

    AT LEAST this i what i gather from posts here.

    I have both the EQX and the excal. Each has its best uses. Although I am tempted to sell my excal because it gets little use. If I was planning on another long beach trip I could always buy another.

    I just find it hard to believe that the EQ can hit depth of an X2 in PP mode and set right.

    Just cant see it... sorry.

    I have both but when I use the equinox and as I am leaving, I feel like I am missing targets so I end up using my Excalibur 90% of the time. Freshwater most of the time. As a matter of fact Iím gonna buy a new one this spring. Good luck.

    Excal gets more depth, I have both Equinox 800 and several excals, Nox is no where as deep as my excals, the Nox advantage is it is a good land and beach detector, excal is heavy on land and Nox hits on gold chains excal will rarely hit on a gold chain unless it has large clasp, curled in ball or holding charm.

    My wife bought me a Equinox 600 for Christmas, I have used twice so far and like it as another tool. I used in deeper water and showing signs of water penetration on the back screen. only visible if I use backlight. still works, all functions.
    Making my wife happy for now but will be taking the Excalibur back out and using in deeper water. I like the Excalibur more maybe just because I know it wont leak and OBN has proven to me it is a ring finder...Congratulation OBN on a good start of the
    year. Hope to display my finds with the Excalibur soon...do wish the Excalibur would pick up small gold chains...oh well. Happy Hunting to all.

    I may be crazy but I have not jumped on the nox yet either, although I have been tempted. I still find stuff with the excal and bought me a tdi beach hunter for a depth advantage. Tdi already scored me a small womenís 10k with diamonds at around 13-14 inches. I like knobs and detectors that go beep.
