    You have to wait because none of that info has been released to Minelab America yet. You can call Australia and ask them.

    Digging up the past
    After guiding disabled vets for the last couple years with all the major machine like the AT-Pro, Deus and CTX 3030 I am fully interested in the new equinox for a couple reasons. its weight, waterproof and speed with depth. From all the video I have seen thus far this machine is bliningly fast compared to the Deus, it discrimintaes as well as the 3030 and it priced affordable akin to to the AT-pro category. I will be buying 8 of them right out of the gate to use full time on our guided hunts since the machines lend themselves well to the new user or first time detectorist. Since brandon niece is using it as his go-to machine from now on I have to side with his judgement at this point. I wont sell our other machines because they will still have a use and I am still fond of the 3030 and deus for certiain types of hunting but I am really stoked on all I have read and watched.

    I said he could call, didn't say they would say anything. Minelab is always very tight lip on new releases, not even letting employees know until just before the release.

    Like every other new release I'd wait and see how it actually performs and the user feedback starts hitting the forums, etc. Per example, when the CTX came out guys rushed to buy them only to experience disappointing leak issues, etc. So for me anyway, time will tell the true story on the machine, not the manufacturer. But if it pans out it should be a good one.

    Agreed but rather than hang it up, lower the prices big time on what is available now. It will be hard to sell F-75s,T2s (for example) at the current price if this new Minelab performs. This is great for the consumer. Minelab may have just re-invented the wheel and with a killer price tag.

    wake me up when they make one with an in-line probe ability.

    I know a lot of guys who refused to part with their Explorers, Etrac's etc... when the CTX came out. Because they dislike having to lug around a hand-held probe. The in-line probe is addictive.

    Yes I must say, they only allow a hand full of people the ability to pre test new Detectors
    in the field across the U.s. .
    I won't name names but when your on that list, you certainly don't want to upset the manufacturer,
    plus one persons go to list of Checks is different then others.
    One may be more into "will it pick up gold ? ",
    while another may be into "comfort"
    and another "quality". but what is comfortable to one for instance,
    may be a nightmare to the other. but will they say so ? or fear they won't get any more to test ?

    I do like to hear from the Buyers.
    Even the Constant Complainers give an idea of whats real about minor issues.

    On a tangent, can anyone tell me what boxes the Garret green machines currently tick?

    Nothing, I believe this machine is going to give the Deus and Garrett a run for their money.. just wait.. Its light weight, water proof and easy to use. Minelab does their homework...
    I was going to get the XP Deus, or the AT Maxx.... not so much anymore. I am so glad I waited, I will be watching this one closely..

    Interesting where does it state on the literature that it can tell the difference between the two? Very curious about this.

    maybe in a Video ?

    if I think about it seriously though, considering all the Size , and shape differences & Karat differences
    there must be Hundreds if not Thousands of differences when it comes to gold Rings & other gold Jewelry.
    and I would believe gold can come in at all parts of the Spectrum.
    so actually You can already block out most Aluminum & find Gold.
    But the Gold must be 10 K or Less & Large .
    I say that because I did Find a large Class ring once that I would have Found with Full discrimination
    on my sovereign sounded like a quarter or can.
    and I found a Keepsake diamond Engagement ring Once (18k white gold) that I could have sworn was a Nail. & in fact was under a Nail. (More Issues to consider )

    then ya Got aluminum Differences From Can to Can tab to Can tab Ring to Can tab Tongue
    to Can tab Tongue rolled up or Flat, or on edge, old style, new style,
    Hippy Style etc, Aluminum Tokens,
    antique car Coins, you name it . all with their own large and slight signature differences.

    Now ad in Ground & age Differences

    I am not jumping on the band wagon. Lots of people do. That's ok. Minelab has produced some machines which are very good for what they do, but some are just to freaking heavy for me. And unwieldy. I have seen people with very expensive top notch machines RUNNNNNNNNN through a field looking for the golden jackpot. I did better that day going slow and methodical. It will all depend on the hype versus reality, and the end user and their needs. Will take a look at it but won't buy another machine of any kind before I have one in my hands to use first. Most dealers have test gardens....If I am not mistaken their Gofind, wasn't so hot. Anybody get one of those?
