    Yup. The Nox is a dig-all machine. I've dug silver I would have sworn was just a bent nail. Odd blips and blurps with high tones and VDI going from 12 -> 31. Cycling through the different frequencies and swinging over the target can sometimes help identify if it's truly junk or a potential good target. But, honestly, dig everything.
    You need more time on the Equinox. Dig it all, huh? Lol. You guys crack me up.

    That quarter was probably a 10" deep target. Any machine on the market would behave the same.....or worse! Simply because of the big chunk of Ferrous sleeping with Lady Liberty.

    My thoughts exactly. If it was on-edge, which is distinct possibility, it is actually an impressive performance by Equinox given that 2x2 ferrous chunk in the hole and the other ferrous that was pulled out in the process. But I give most of the credit to PA DIRT for not giving up on the target after all that iron was coming out of the hole. Persistence pays off and it also pays to play those hunches. Plenty of iffy signals by Equinox have given my just that one blip that says, keep digging and find out what this is and it has paid off more often than not.

    And you know how much time I have on my Nox how? haha Not being rude, but I've probably well over 300 hours on the thing. Don't get me wrong, I love my Nox, but it is a dig-all machine. You never know what's going to come out of the ground with it. Different soil types, moisture levels, etc. all yield different tones and VDI readings with pretty much any detector. But the Nox is very rarely VDI accurate if the soil types are different. IHPs will register 19-20 in sand/dark soil, but 23-24 like a wheatie in red clay. Just an example. South GA goes from sand to organic-rich dark soil to stick-to-your-everything red clay. I've experience in it all and can tell you now that if you don't dig it all, you'll miss good targets.

    What machine doesn't produce sporadic VDI's on an IHP? They ring up all over the place. The 800 is easily the most efficient cherry picker I've used so far.

    Same for me too. I'm hunting a 220 acre park that I've hunted for 35 years. I've been hunting in Park 1/50 tones, and can tell 90%+ of the time if it's a crown cap or even an aluminum wine cap now. 50 tones enables me to hear the "warbles" and "whoop-de-doos" given by the junk targets that plague the park, even at depth. I am thoroughly impressed by the Equinox 800. I've only had mine since January and have dug 11 silver dimes, 4 buffs, and a quite a large handful of wheat cents. The difference? Excellent discrimination at depth. I'm finding coins deeper than my Tesoro Sidewinder, or AT Pro with 5x8 coil could even go. The 800 TRULY has opened up the park again for me, with the deeper targets. They said the AT Pro would do that, not so much for me. Hunting with the 8-1/2 x 11 coil on the ATP was practically impossible for all the junk in this park. I found some stuff with it, but the 800 puts it to shame, no comparison. It's one hell of a cherry picker. I love it, and am happy as all get out that I bought it.

    It was just an example. Another is a silver washington that rang up as a 16 in red clay at 5 inches. 16. Never over. I thought it was a shotgun shell head stamp. Point is - dig it all. Can't refute that. People who think the Nox is a perfect machine on tones and VDI are missing a lot of stuff.

    I learned the 800 by digging everything. Then I quickly learned that I didnít really need to dig everything. Yeah I suppose I will miss a few things. My knees and my back simply couldnít take digging every single target on every hunt. Getting old sucks sometimes. Iíll keep cherry picking as long as the picking is good.

    Digging in the dirt & scooping in the water!
    I've still not read my EQ800 manual, and likely never will = as that would probably confuse me, my brain isn't what it used to be.

    I just listen to the sounds. That's all I do with my CTX as well. I look at the numbers, but really don't pay attention to them. It's the sounds for me, solid repeaters.

    But I must say, I'd have probably missed your find.
