    Wood I thought you sold your f75 plus If it was so great why did you sell it? Have you sold all your detectors this week and went back to Tesoro? What flavor is it this week?

    Nope,still got the f75+,,thinking about it tho..took it out to a old cornfield today and got some flat buttons,a buckle and lots of modern lead..Good enough machine but I’m looking hard at the anfibio..I like Tesoro’s cause when I coin hunt silver they’re really quite in parks,I just turn that disc up full blast and I don’t hear a sound till it hits a coin,plus they’re light..best clad stabbed made imo.
    I think we’re gonna see a lot of new releases in the next few months so I’m trying to hold back on buying anything.The orx looks ok but I think I’d get another Deus before the orx,more control with Deus which I just might end up getting for fields with the used market so cheap on them.If Minelab could duplicate the deus ergonomics I think they’d be able to make those comments they made,but until then I’ll hold my breath.lol

    It's the gentlemanly thing to do to say things like each person has to pick what is right for them and that no machine is better than another. There's some validity to some machines clicking better with some people than others. Tones for example seem to be a major selling point or roadblock for some people. I personally love Minelab tones. I don't care for tones you find on most others, but if tomorrow a killer machine were released with fart tones I'd buy it. In any event, I don't find it to be true that there's no best or better machine(s). As much as it is a hobby, it's also a science and objective tests are how we measure performance. When we get right down to the tradition of declaring all machines are created equal and experience is what matters most there are usually 2 elephants in the room or land mines of reality being avoided.

    1. Is budget. Not everyone can afford flagships. Fewer still can afford the flagships among flagships. I've seen the thinly veiled resentments in both directions. Many guys who have the most expensive machines won't accept that anyone spending much less could do comparatively well with something much cheaper. They paid to ensure that shouldn't be the case haha. Conversely, many guys formerly of the AT Pro crowd resented the guys running around with a CTX-3030 or an XP Deus because it was out of their reach and those guys often didn't hide their contempt, peppered with wild dirt fishing tales of 14" coins buried under a pile of bent nails purportedly picked up right behind those multi-thousand dollar machines.

    2. Is cognitive ability and/or willingness to learn. It's a fact of life that some people are quicker studies than others and some people revel in mastering complex interactions and pattern recognition, while others need much more time to become proficient and do better with the KISS method. It has long been an unwritten rule to pretend everyone must spend x hours on a given machine before he has mastered it and can offer legitimate analysis, advice etc. The keepers of this gate are always locked and loaded, insisting that the number of years in the hobby and number of hours on a particular machine are the last word in a detecting issue. This is not true for everyone. There have been many guys who have come along and learned more in a year or two than some have learned over a lifetime. I've seen some guys come along and get so serious about soaking up the fundamentals of the technology itself that they can pick up practically any machine and as soon as they know where the functions are located in the menu structure they are right up to speed. So it's not the quantity of the experience but the quality of the experience coupled with the ability to understand as much as possible about how these machines work.

    I get it though. I understand the motivation behind these traditions. It's a way of being courteous, inclusive, respecting seniority, growing the hobby etc. Ultimately it doesn't really matter what you're swinging if you're finding things and having fun. That's the most important factor. But in a comparison or head to head, it is a competition by its nature and if done correctly, someone or some machine will be objectively better than another, however broad or limited in scope. To some people it will come easier than others and some machines will do things better than others.

    To be clear, I'm not saying anyone is being charitable comparing the F75, F75+, F75 LTD etc. with the Equinox. I don't think they are so far apart that experience couldn't make a difference. The F75 has a clever way of processing its signals and there are many "tells" to learn. In some modes two signals are sent and received through two different circuits simultaneously. One true all metal signal and another through the disc circuit to give an ID as deep as possible even when in all metal mode. The all metal signal of course always punches deeper than the disc circuit signal, but there are ways to tell that a deep object reading lower in conductivity may not be iron or aluminum etc. by the combined data in the audio, depth, and target ID. After some time it becomes second nature. I think it's still a competitive machine and deadly once you learn to harness its full depth. If it were waterproof I'd still be swinging one in some places.
