    His and hers detectors

    Husband and wife both looking to purchase two Minelab 800ís as we see numerous mutual benefits. We are beginners here and understand the learning curve may be a tad steep but we both would rather grow into a machine as to grow out of one. However, are we missing something ...is there any wisdom to having different machines say a low cost/high cost or different makers ...specialties, capabilities. Appreciate any thought and suggestions.

    Tarcher...

    I completely agree with your line of thinking! Grow into it instead of out of it.

    If it were me...I'd get the 800 and another Similar Unit...Sometimes one picks up what another misses.

    First, Welcome to Tnet! Next, what type of detecting do you do? As in, what do you hunt for? Where? Land? Water? Ocean? Prospecting? Etc.....

    Well we live in rural west Tennessee so farm land and old homes would be our most immediate activity we also vacation along the east coast so the beach and shallow water a real possibility. I grew up in a beach area so familiar with beach combing using a homemade manual sifter ...donít see them any more.

    The Equinox detectors should meet those needs quite well. In fact, I can't think of a better machine for that combination of uses. A Deus might be a bit better in heavy iron, but, it's not waterproof or near as good at a salt water beach. A CTX would be a good choice too, but, it's a lot heavier (albeit better balanced), it costs a LOT more, and it has a slower processor.

    The Garrett AT series are not good salt water beach machines. The Equinox goes deeper with better I.D. and is better in iron than the AT's also. For the relatively similar price, there is no reason to buy an AT over an Equinox.

    The Equinox has several hunting modes, each sounds and works like different detectors. You could run Park1 and your wife run Field2 and hit the same area to cover most potential targets. The Equinox is usable by beginners, but can easily be overwhelming. If you had someone go out with you the first time, it would be very helpful. Then post in the Brands forum to Minelab Equinox any questions and issues you encounter, we will help. Good luck and have fun!

So, you might consider jumping over to Sub-Forum: Select Your Area.... and selecting location information (i.e., clubs, hunts, finds, legends, maps, etc.) directly related to your state (or country). You might also consider adding your state (or country) to your displayed profile (SETTINGS -> EDIT PROFILE).

    Not sure if it's an issue with the nox series but having two detectors of the same frequencies could cause issues. The tesoro vaquero has a .2 shift so if two are nearby one can switch and continue without problem.

    That isn't an issue with an Equinox. You just fire up both machines and hit the noise cancel on each one while they're close to each other.
