    I had an 800 but sold it after I got an XP Orx. Then I had second thoughts about selling my 800 and bought a 600. I realized I rarely used the 800 out of the default programs so the 600 made sense. Very happy with the Orx and the Nox. Good luck with your 800

    Anyways Im ready for an upgrade. Mostly I detect a large park with woods (spring/fall) and playing fields (summer) There is a river spot that has been calling me for a while now. There was a large swim beach in the 1930s and 1940s. Im ready to get in the water this summer. I've taken my kayak through the swimming area and I say its maybe 4-5 feet at its deepest and ankle deep at the shalowest.

    I've seen a lot of videos of both the Nox and Simplex. I know they are worlds apart in price. Is the Nox worth it? Is the Simplex too good to be true? I like the multi frequency option and I have a single frequency machine now. I like the vibrating handle option. Backlights, Coil options, Waterproof, Mode options all that jazz. Id like to make a purchase I will be happy with AND keep my wife on my good side too I know I'm not going to just hop in the water and find the good stuff. Im ready to learn the new machine and put the hours in. I will proably make a purchace within a few months when the weather is Much better.

    If you have used either machine or both let me know your thoughts. Id like to know what other machines you have used also. Looking forward to hearing from you guys and girls.

    Thanks and happy hunting!

    Personally, between NOX and SIMPLEX, I prefer NOX because it is much more versatile. I have the 2 machines and I use NOX every day and the SIMPLEX I use for backup.

    Thanks lemarquez. Got the nox800 2 weeks ago and it has not disappointed me at all. I've found things the ace has missed and it finds DEEP relics. Once i can post pics again I'll give a round up of my first 10 hours with it �� good luck out there.

    Do your research and the go with your gut. If you don't have a good feeling you will always wonder. Any detector I ever bought that didn't give me butterflies waiting for it to be shipped I wasn't happy with. I took a very reputable vendors advice on one detector I wasn't sold on and in 6 months I was in the market again. For me I have had what I say are 3 fails in detectors I didn't like and 3 wins for detectors I was excited about.

    I don't detect for the stuff I find, I detect for the stuff I haven't found.

    If I didn't find it I hope you did.

    Thanks for the advice Normsel. I went along and got the Nox800. Believe me I had butterflies when it showed up at my door and couldent get it together fast enough. I have about 20 hours on it so far and it has not disappointed me. First silver coin with it was a 1944 Walker 9 inches deep. Lots of other cool relics too that I have missed in the past with my Ace250. Good Luck Happy Hunting and Stay Safe!

    You need to look at it another way. That ACE 250 helped you clean up the top layer of junk so the Equinox 800 could see deeper. There is nothing wrong with using a "weaker" detector that has less depth to clean up before a deeper seeking unit is used over an area. Sort of smart method really. You get double the hunting fun. Unfortunately in this humid heat must admit I'd rather cherry pick.

    I did the same thing with my NOX 800. Had the same issue. I used to think of it as the coin collector. Bought an XP Deus and haven’t looked back. Sold the Equi 3 days later. I’m calling targets to, and doing pretty good.
