    Minelab Equinox 800 comes out swinging with 15x12 coil installed

    First outing with the bigger 15”x12” coil for Equinox. At first today not as windy but as the day progressed super duper windy. Hunting same site basically where the 3 silver bits/coins were found this past Friday. I used the coil for aprox 2.5 hours. Not a bad feel using this coil on Equinox. A minesweeper for sure. Only run in field 2 speed 5 iron bias 0. Sens at 23 and detector was very stable. I think it helps to have some Nox time under your belt land hunting using stock before one embarks using this monster coil. Second target of the day about 2.5 minutes into actual detecting sweeping time another BINGO. Another Spanish cut bit real small. Even smaller than the one I found with Deus Hf elliptical coil some time ago about 500 yards from where I was today. Buried undisturbed it read 14/15 on sweeps. When plug was dug and inverted signal jumped to 20. My friend got target out of plug and sure enough another bit. Scott is a member here. Goes by forum name Curbdog.

    I apologize for the wind. But figured these bits don’t come easy. Had to show some video.
    On a side note.
    I changed to stock coil and the wind got real stiff. Like 30 plus and even higher gusts. I couldn’t hear very well using my wi stream module and Walkman style headphones. Remember now I have quite a few hours of hunting using Wi stream in this site. So I turned on the Bluetooth and proceeded. I instantly could tell/hear the delay. After 10 minutes they went back in the truck and I again put wi stream setup back on and kept going.

    Not all finds shown in this short video today.
    Will post a few pics.
    Also I talk iin this video. The detector used to try and see if it can hear the bit before dug was actually a Kruzer 14 detector with 11” dd coil of off my Anfibio multi. I said in video in one spot it was a Anfibio multi. Not true.

    This big Coil seems can strike small targets.


    Here is pic of bit. Quite a bit thinner than US clad dime. Clad dime in pic for scale.

    Rest of finds. Nails at top. The rest nonferrous.
