    New Minelab Equinox coil Feb1?

    Announcement that is. This is what I heard does anyone know anything else about it? Minelab must be aware of the demand for more coil options- Also heard about
    a possible price increase coming on the 800,600 but can’t confirm.
    Other coil choices would be good news. I’ve long hoped for a mid size coil like an 8”or 9” round or a 10” x 7” elliptical.
    To me it would be logical to offer the vanquish coil lineup adapted to the equinox. The sizes are good, the coil ears beefier, and they are modestly priced. I’d get the 10”x7” yesterday. Whatever they do should also be compatible with the next version of the Nox if there is one coming.

    I also heard of the price increases. I don't know anything about a new coil.

    I've heard rumors about both, with the elliptical coil being a solid bottom and mainly one designed for prospecting. Nothing concrete though........

    I asked them several times for an 8" coil, and others would love to see one also, I hope this is what comes. Almost never take the 8" off my Safari, don't understand why they don't make more coils for the Nox.

    Coiltek= good coils but also = pricey.
    That kills my hope they adapted the vanquish line to work on the Nox which is a good size range and lower possible prices.

    I hope it’s not 10 x 7 and would rather see a 5 x 10 DD. A 10 x 7 I believe would be a mistake.
    A 10 x 7 is just to close to a 11”

    a 5 x 11 would also be great.
    you could get into tight spaces and also cover more ground.

    10x7 (or 7×10, either way its the same coil, you never see "sideways" oriented elliptical coils) is actually closer to the 6 inch not the 11" from a depth perspective. The short width dimension of an elliptical DD coil primarily determines the diameter of the round coil it should be compared to for depth purposes. In this case, a 7 inch round, but with 10 inches of swing sweep coverage for a 3 inch improvement. So it would have slightly better depth than the 6 inch round and 4 inches of additional swing coverage. The 5x10 (or 10x5) would be slightly less or almost the same depth than the 6" round (the 10" length does provide some slight enhancement of the overall magnetic field strength vs. a 5" round) with good 10" coverage. So both the 5x10 and 7x10 coils woud have similar depth performance to the 6" round, with the 7x10 probably getting an additonal inch plus of depth over the 5x10. Both would have the same swing coverage. The only real difference being more ability to swing the 5x10 in tight side-to-side situations vs. the 7x10.

    The 600 will probably stay the same price.

    Looks like they are trying to recoup the money for the broken ears.
    raising it that much will be a game killer. Especially when our country is tanking.

    Doubtful, it will be a game killer. They know exactly what they are doing and what they can get away with without killing Equinox sales which has been really good. They are very business savvy and take meticulous data on sales, regional and worldwide, and warranty repair costs (the drowned control pods are probably more expensive to deal with than the coil ears, but both problems are costing them money - yet at 3 years, they have one of the longest lasting warranties in the business). How do I know? Codan is a publicly-traded company and they have to be pretty transparent with their business performance data some of which is poste online. They are doing quite well from a business perspective. Even though it won't play well with us, the fact is the Equinox is an excellent and popular detector and the price hike will do little to dampen the enthusiasm for those who have yet to buy one. It is a calculated business decision.

    $50 price raise is not even 10% on the 800. Won't mean jack! Also will not even start to pay for their poor engineering.

    Looks like you are going to get your wish Doug>a 5x10 coil is coming as well as a 9x14 and a 15" round
