    That's the vid I was looking for. Will be trying the Nel Attack that I purchased recently on my AT, and if it doesn't perform, I'm afraid the EQ800 is in my near future

    Thanks for posting Truth!

    It is a pretty good video. Same thing needs to be done by 1) discovering a nail pit and putting a target down in said pit and testing the machines and 2) the horrid red Virginia dirt test.

    From this video, I would not buy one since I already have a Deus and a new Tesoro Vaqeuro. I don't see an advantage to spending another thousand.
    Both of my current machines do well in the VA dirt and nail pits if you set them correctly. Too many machines in the closet just doesn't work for me.

    I hope someone will take one out to a horrid site and let us know. I'll do that test in March, you never know, cats do change their minds from time to time.

    It is a good video. One thing I believe can be confirmed, the VDI #'s on most machines can be a OK reference point to look at, but it's the sound that I really try to pay attention to.

    You are correct sprailroad, and if unsure, dig it. I found one of my gold coins and one of the gold rings on "iffy" signals.

    Right back at you Smokey, I just cannot pass them up, to many "pleasant" surprises.

    Thank you for the review, it looks like you spent a lot of time on it. I’m looking forwards to receiving my 800 and taking it out with my Safari and Vaquero and seeing how they compare. Dave

    If I pull the trigger on the EQ, I'll be happy with the AT as a backup.

    Exactly. The equinox looks like a great detector but the at pro is no slouch especially for the price. I have found a lot of good finds with 5x8 coil in trashy parks. The larger coils allow for comparable depth to any detector on the market. Until the equinox came along there was no better detector than the at pro as far as "best bang for your buck".

    There will be plenty of each type available used by the end of the summer digging season. I for one have a hard time waiting for anything, however, I may wait a bit. I know the smaller coil for the AT Pro will punch down through nail pits and get to the good stuff.
