    I ended up going with the Minelab Equinox 800 today. It’s on its way to me so hopefully I will be able to update how I am making out by the end of this weekend if it shows up on time this Friday.

    My buddy just got the 800 and he whipped my butt on our last hunt. But, in my defense I found out today that my X35 coil may be defective. I have one more thing to try tomorrow before I send it back. I liked the 800 but it is a little coil heavy just like my White's DFX. That is why I went with the Deus.
    My wife does all the driving, I just hold the steering wheel.

    Welcome to TN! Itís a nice place with nice people.

    Congrats on your decision. I bought the Nox 600 previously owned for an excellent price, thinking I would be able to sell it and upgrade to the 800 down the road. Itís been 200+ hours of swinging and I see no need for the other bells and whistles that make the 600 into an 800. Both have identical performance specs, with both operating all five frequencies in Multi-IQ. I have yet to find a need to go into single frequency, so isolating 20 & 40 kHz is a non issue, and thereís no gold prospecting in this boys future.

    If you havenít found her already, Relic Dirtyhands YouTube channel has excellent, brief tutorials on the Equinox. Each 2-3 minute video helps to understand each area of the owners manual, without simply reading the manual.

    Be sure to download the manual an go through it. I have it on my iPhone as a reference if needed to understand a feature.

    Happy Hunting

    Hereís a little cheat sheet to get you started. FYI, pull tabs show up 13-16, along with the gold. Thatís a sick trick to get you to dig pull tabs.

    Thank you for this sheet that will help out for sure at least for getting started. I got a chance to mess with it a little yesterday for the first time, but the weather around here has not been to good. Hoping I can get out tomorrow for a while and see how it goes.

    Thank You
    Brian
