    Made the leap

    Iím fairly new to the metal detector world. Iíve been going for about a month now and decided itís something I want to continue doing regularly since I enjoy it so much. Iíve been using an ace 300, and Iíve been pretty happy with it. Not a bad machine for the money, but I ordered the nox 800, and it should be here on Friday. Iíve been reading as much as I can about it, and it looks like it may take some getting used to. Either way, Iíll have fun tweaking it and hunting. Iím sure Iíll have some questions along the way, so I just wanted to ďintroduceĒ myself to the equinox forum.

    Welcome to both of you guys! Yea, I read up on these machines. Clive has a couple real informative books. I bought both of his books. Also, read these posts from the nox users. These guys have a lot of experience on this forum. I have a notebook so I can make notes and make an excel spreadsheet like I did for the CTX 3030. It just kinda helps me remember so when I get out there and start digging stuff up, I have my notes from these guys as well so it can sink in a little more. Enjoy that new machine!

    I am new to this hobby also and I am sure everyone here is sick of my questions.

    However, I have found everyone here to be very nice and helpful with anything I ask and for offering advice.

    you will be happy with it, just make sure that you get the correct protective film that is English for the face. save the others to cut and replace the upper portion of the film later. awesome machine, I up graded an AT GOLD for the 600 and am very happy.
    at some point, we all have questions. congrats

    Congrats! Try to focus on the very subtle (but noticable) differences in the signals you get from all different targets. Try digging most signals until you get a decent grasp on that. The Vdi is compressed but very accurate considering. Using the audio, pinpoint strength+signal area and depth gauge.....then visual readout you should have a pretty good idea of what's under the coil in no time.

    Welcome to the hobby, the forum, and to Equinox. Now that you have decided metal detecting is for you by cutting your teeth on the capable Ace 300, you have made a great choice on selecting a detector that will accommodate you as you grow in skill and experience and is versatile enough to use under a variety of conditions and metal detecting adventures from beach to parks to mountains to deserts, coin shooting, relic hunting, and prospecting. Hang on to that Ace as backup or to help introduce a friend or family member to the hobby.
