    I was already locked into 50 tones since coming from a Minelab Safari. Same tones as Etrac and Explorer too. I just lower volume on iron in the horseshoe mode so the non-ferrous sounds come in loud. I couldn't hunt in any other tone setting except 50.

    Im another that cannot take 50 tones. But I came from a Tesoro, so I have a good excuse. Also since switching to Field 2 Ive done much better on coins.

    50 tones was natural to me coming from Deus but I also use 5 tones and even 2 tones under done circumstances. 50 tones is definitely an acquired taste and not for everyone and also not necessary to be successful with Equinox.

    ...And regardless if you have it set up for 2, 3, 5 or 50 tones, the important thing to learn is tone quality. Tone Pitch roughly tells you ferrous vs. non-ferrous, low conductor, mid conductor, high conductor like visual target ID number. But tone quality and the nuances associated with it such as breaking/distorted tone, hollow tone, sharp tone, long tone are the clues that tell you more about the nature of the target and the probability of whether you are swinging over a button, coin, nail, can, or irregularly shaped piece of junk. More important to learn than trying to force yourself to use 50 tones.

    Purchased a Nox 600 today and so looking forward to getting it out as soon as this broken leg heals. Have about a dozen hunting spots to hit right away.
