    Christmas came early. Equinox 800!

    My wife took me to the local detecting shop today and bought me an Equinox 800. Ive been using a T2 plus which i have nothing but good things to say about but i think im gonna love this machine. So many more options! I cant wait to take it out and start using it. Any tips or advice would be appreciated. I mostly relic hunt in woods and somewhat trashy areas.

    Yes, send it over to me so I can inspect it, and get it all set up for you.

    Wow, what a wife. Mine was a little different. When I had ordered a Minelab Safari one year, I kept waiting for it to arrive, (early December), well....my wife intercepted it and wrapped it up as a Christmas present from her to me. Now, what's wrong with that picture. Again BenVa, Wow, what a wife. I guess I'll add that, following her lead, the next year, I did buy an AT Pro as a Christmas present for HER, (she does not detect), and the most recent was a EQ 800, buying it as a new toy for the dog. (He does not detect either). Yup, I'm a generous kind of guy.

    Congrats on getting a new, hot machine! I suggest going to Minelab's site (you need to go there to register it for warranty anyways) and go to their manual page and download the full manual for your Nox. Just choose the one with the EN (for English) suffix. I think it is one of the best manuals yet put out by Minelab and it is a must read. I have a printed out copy and am still learning my machine.

    Check out the Minelab tab in the Metal Detecting Forum under "Brands". Lots of user related info for the 800.

    My wife saw the price tag and just laughed at me.
