    If you set up an AT pro or AT max correctly, they do pretty good in the wet sand, I haven’t tried mine under salt water yet

    Another thing that pushed me towards the AT line was the interchangeable coils that are very reasonably priced. I have a 15’, 13’, 11” and a 5.5” and I plan on getting the 8.5” this spring

    The Equinox does everything an AT will do, and do it better IMO. For sure there is no contest in salt water. 3 coils are now available for the Nox also.

    You could have a 2" coil on the AT series and the EQ with the 11" will out seperate it. My F75 is a faster machine than the AT stuff and the Equinox will dust the Fisher.

    Those must be some fast machines. Does this mean you can sweep or swing very fast and still get a good hit on something like a screw through a dime? I can hear a coin literally touching iron with my at pro but I have to go slow.

    I really don't believe you will regret buying the Equinox 600. It's a very good machine.

    I've hunted right next to AT pros with my 800 and there is no comparison. You can't put the older platform machines up against the new stuff. They don't compete.

    That being said, you still have to get the coil over the target and know what your machine is telling you. Don't discount blind, stupid luck either! I've seen some amazing finds made by newbies with the cheapest POS out there.
