    “The Minelab Equinox: “From Beginner to Advanced”

    “The Minelab Equinox: “From Beginner to Advanced”
    Clive James Clynick is the author of some 20 previous detector “how-to” manuals, numerous articles and product reviews. In this detailed and informative book he explains the Minelab Equinox’s ground breaking technology and how it can help you to find treasure. Topics include:

    • Customizing the Equinox for your Conditions and Targets Sought.
    • “Multi IQ” and High Gain Detector Operating Characteristics.
    • Understanding and Applying the Equinox’s Features.
    • Audio, Meter and Coil Control “Skill Building.”
    • Beach, Shallow Water and “In-Iron” Skill Building with the Equinox.
    • The Equinox as a Gold Jewellery-Hunting Machine.
    • “Reverse” Hunting with the Equinox.
    • Bottlecaps and Other Problem Targets.

    …and much more…

    Reading a manual can make you look real smart
    Not reading a manual...can just make you look not so smart.
    Telling people you can't read on a forum....just makes you look stupid.

    Relic Hunting
    I have mentioned this 111 page book titled "The Minelab Equinox Series - From Beginner to Advanced" in some replies to other Equinox related posts. Here I will give you my take on the book.

    First about me. I have used the great AT Pro for about three years and have been metal detecting since 1988 off and on starting with hunting gold in north GA using a Fisher Gold bug. But being an off and on detectorist does not put me in the same ranks of the pros on these forums that hunt often on a monthly basis or more.

    I considered myself an average hobbyist going out about once a week looking for coins and relics in suburban Atlanta area (not an area rich with old coins).

    The AT Pro was probably one of the best mid price range detector ever manufactured. Now it is the Equinox's turn.

    Now to the book. I was overwhelmed the first couple of weeks trying to learn my Equinox 800. At first I really thought my 800 was defective because it was so, so very chatty since I hunted trashy parks and was where I practiced. I saw on the forums many people having problems learning the Equinox detectors and yet at the same time the more experienced hunters were having good successes with the machines.

    I saw a few posts about Clynick's book and decided that was the book for me. And it was. It is not another general 101 detecting book with just a few pages devoted to the Equinox detectors. It is all about the 600 and 800. With that being said the 800 users will find the coverage of the 800's advanced features and settings a bonus.

    Even still there are parts of his book you will have to read several times, at least I did.

    The author has written quite a few books on metal detecting so he was able to crank this good book out in record time via self publishing.

    I won't take the time to go over each chapter, that is why you should buy the book if you are still perplexed or don't feel comfortable with you 600 or even more so with your 800.

    If you are a coming from using other Minelab detectors you may not need this book.

    The book is no substitute for not putting in the hours hunting with your machine, but it does make those hours more productive in terms of learning the machine. Also I have filled in my 800 learning gaps with carefully reading as many posts here and on other MD forums devoted to the 600 and 800. And to a lesser extent some youtube videos made by people using the Equinox.

    And no I am not affiliated with Clynick in any manner. I do own and operate multiple, very technical book review web sites but won't post those links or names, because that is not the purpose of this post. The purpose of this post is to help newbies and others learn these remarkable detectors.



    HH with your 600 or 800.

    Reader Feedback “The Minelab Equinox: From Beginner to Advanced” by Clive James Clynick (2018)

    Received the book. Excellent information within! Great for beginning with the Nox, as well as advanced settings and techniques for experienced users.

    CG
    Great reference that I will refer to often. Very in-depth on the capabilities and functions of the Equinox line. Pleased with this purchase!! Recommended for all Equinox users, and potential buyers.

    Brilliant book well worth getting it gives you a better understanding of the machine than the manual alone.
    PS

    Clive, enjoying the hell out of your book. It is a must have for any Equinox hunter. $ well spent, thank you Sir.
    RL

    Very informative. I would highly recommend.

    Clive! Received the book. That was quick shipping thanks. Excellent read and informative. This will truly help.
    Best of luck!

    RG
    Clive, I have you’re manual & I read it over & over & learn more each time. Nicely done sir.
    JJ
    After reading your book I concentrated much more on the sound quality of targets. I very quickly started to understand which sounds to dig. Have found several ancient coins already.

    Digging in the dirt & scooping in the water!
    I've mentioned this book before here several times. This is the 5th book of Clive's I've purchased. And my confidence in purchasing came from my readings of his previous books.

    And I was NOT disappointed. His book is readable and doesn't put me to sleep like reading the manuals does. Someone in another thread compared his books to the manuals and stated that manuals are written to be translated in many languages - which makes them boring and kind of non-specific to the detector user's needs. Clive writes his books from an experienced detectorist viewpoint - far, far more understandable.

    Thanks Clive!

    Hi Clive! Received an e-mail today from Kellyco = my 800 arrives day after tomorrow - Friday

    I stood by Kellyco through all the negativity against them. My view of the world is to stick with good people, and have patience when it is needed! Stay safe!
