    There has to be a reason ?

    I'm just getting back into detecting and have watched a LOT of You Tube videos to bring me back up to speed. Most of them seem to be using Minelab Equinox detectors (coin and relic and beach). I'm just wondering why. Are they some of the overall best machines around ? Just curious. Be safe and healthy all !

    Yeah it doesn't look like they are power on and go machines for sure. The multi frequency thing looks like an advantage, probably why so many peeps use them on You Tube videos. Thanks for the reply.

    It depends on what type of hunting you are doing.

    Civil war relics - XP Deus or Equinox
    deep coin hunting - CTX 3030
    Ocean beach (wet hunting) - a good PI machine or Equinox 800
    Desert gold machine - Equinox 800 or some higher end gold detector.

    Sometimes a PI machine will work best on Civil War sites, depending on the ground mineralization.
    The good old Sovereign, Explorer, and Etrac are also good on deep coins, as well as many of the Fisher machines.
    I would add the CTX, Excalibur, and CZ21 to your beach machine list.
    Also, there are many good gold nugget machines in all price ranges. One of the best tiny and shallow nugget machines is still the Gold Bug. Deeper stuff would need a better machine though, like the Gold Monster1000 or the real high end stuff that are multi-thousands of dollars.

    Because the kind of people vain enough to video themselves are lured by the marketing and design of Minelab? ;-)

    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    I really find it funny when they are SO sure that the detector THEY use is the best that they make videos on it running down other machines, but then turn off commenting because they are cowardly sheep.

    If I see a channel with commenting turned off they don't even get a second look. Only cowards have something to hide.

    Best finds have been found by entry level detectors....... it's usually the presistance of the detectorist that makes the difference.

    I do fine with what i got and follow guys with minelabs new and old models all the time
    https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC9z...hkEv_fdD_Gglsg

    Equinox is the flavor of the month
    guys used to say their Excals were the best in the world
    then 3030s came out and they said those were best in the world
    then garrett ATX and AT PRO and everyone was buying them
    i got friends that have 8 or more machines that are top of the line by every company out there
    I dont get out as much as i used to but i trudge along with what i got and usually get a few good keepers every time i get out still
    and i follow guys with every new model out there

    You must have missed their marketing blitz, they boldly claimed for months that the nox would obsolete all other detectors, and many bought into the hype. It is a very good detector to be sure but I think right now it is more trendy than anything, and I am guessing that sales of their top of the line units fell to rock bottom with the nox success.
    Most guy are gadget fiends face it, we want the latest and greatest. Fact is, the best detector out there, the best and greatest that will ever be, is the one you use the most - And that doesn't have to be the latest deep seeking monster with bluetooth and gps.

    I have one btw, got it late last summer and haven't used it yet so I still reserve my impression of it. I got the simplex and have been using that alot ,, Will more than likely get an Apex when they hit the market, looks promising and I am a big fan of the Ace line.

    True. I am using a couple of home made machines, have one yet to be boxed and intend to build another one (i have to keep pace with the market lol); i a have found so much trash over the years i coud open a private City dump - so they still must be top of the line, i guess. Or maybe there is no such thing as the best detector - just go out and use whatever you have, as often as you can.

    Welcome to T-Net, some like Fords some like Chevy's. The NOX seems to be the bell of the ball right now. I like Garretts but that doesn't make me right or wrong. Find what you like, then learn it inside and out. HH & GL
