    This is from my first hunt (besides test garden in my back yard and a quick 1 hr test run) with my new Equinox.
    Initially I was frustrated as it is a lot different than my AT Pro that I have gotten quite adept at. but I decided to dig everything that was repeatable so as to understand what everything sounds like (and displays)
    this target I initially decided to pass up, I hit it with park 1 and 2 and it didn't sound good in park 2 and I don't recall if it picked up in park 1. so I walked away and my gut said to hit it one more time. so I put it in field 2 and it sounded great. it came in a solid repeatable 8. I found it about 6 inches down and the chain was not balled up.

    0 threshold
    8 for ground balance, not for a particular reason but because I didn't know how to adjust it or what the values are for this machine.
    7 for recovery
    20 or 19 for sensitivity

    -Happy hunting

    That's an awesome find. Congrats! Makes my wait for my 800 that much more painful.

    Good job. The inexperienced newbie doesn't dig the iffy targets. The rest of us clean up like nobody's business.

    This machine gives me new hope for my pounded out sites.
    The spot I found it in has been hit by many a detector, with AT Pros, CTX 3030, V3i iv even seen a guy swinging one of those old Garrett GTI 2500. and last month I was over the same spot with my AT Pro

    It should be better than the AT for sure. When I moved to the HF coil on the Deus, it was like I had never been to any of my sites before. I am sincerely glad you're getting it out there and having fun.

    One thing I have noticed about "hunted out" sites. Sometimes its just the angle of attack, the way the coil is tilted (or not) above the ground, ground moisture, little things like that. Frost heaving the soil. Sometimes it's not so much the machine. Things to think on.

    Great find! I walk over the same 10 sites year after year,always find new stuff. Up here in nh, I definitely think frost heaves work in our favor!

    I even dig what I know are Civil War ration cans, iron. They are about $35 each now.

    Bringing home the gold,
    I think the machine probably locked in on the charm.
    That's a sweet find.

    Kind of wish I needed a new machine, but I'm not a believer in closet queens, and have two pretty new beauties at the moment. I'd like to see what the Equinox II will look like when (or if) they take consumer feedback into consideration and will be interesting to see what (or if) accessories like an "S" shaft will be coming along. New toys are fun. It would be an upgrade for a lot of folks if they have the bucks.
