  1. Equinox 800 Is A Nickel Magnet!!!

    After compiling statistics on US coins found to date in 2021 and after entering my latest hunt in my detector log book, I compared my latest statistics (number of coins found in numbers, denomination and percentage of the total number that that denomination comprises. I have found that of the...

  3. Go Wireless With Bluetooth

    Are you tired of being teathered to your metal detector by headphone wires? Ever been hunting in thick brush and suddenly have your headset jerked off your head when the wires between your headset and your detector got caught on a tree or bush branch? Or have you ever put down your detector to...
  4. Converting your wired T2 to Wireless Bluetooth Headphones or earbuds

    Are you tired of being teathered to your metal detector by the headset wires? Ever caught the wires on a bush or tree branch and ruined an expensive pair of headsets? Ever put the detector down to recover a target and forgot about the wire tying you to your detector and off flies the headsets...
  5. What is better for picking through trash and detecting deeper targets?

    I've heard conflicting opinions as to what is most effective in detecting in a trashy area and being able to lock on and detect the deeper good targets... a faster recovery speed or a slower recovery speed. What is your experience on this and why?
  6. Question...Does changing frequency help while hunting?

    While hunting around an old park or an old house using Park 1 setting, I often get mixed signals alerting me that there are possibly multiple deep mixed targets like iron and a coin. My question is, does changing to a low single frequency like 4khz or 5khz help in detecting and verifying a deep...
  7. T2 Classic saves the day

    I was high up on a ladder, drilling and installing a security camera system on the outside of my house when I dropped a stainless steel screw. I heard it hit the aluminum ladder when it fell but I lost sight of it when it landed. My first thoughts were "Oh no, now I'll have to take another screw...
  8. I made an assumption

    I had assumed that because I recently bought a new Equinox 800, that it had the 3.0 software update that added the 4Mhz frequency to it. Just out of curiosity I toggled through the frequencies and discovered that was not the case. So I went to the Minelab site that had the update and followed...
  9. Equinox 800 reading on cast iron

    Took the Equinox 800 for a short outing in a local skateboard park yesterday. Was using the stock 11" coil ... big mistake! There were so many targets in the ground that my mind went into complete overload. Next time I go there, I'll definitely put on the 6" sniper coil. Anyway, I didn't let...
  10. Received My New Equinox 800

    Received my new Equinox 800 earlier this week on Monday. After carefully unpacking it and reading the assembly instructions, I got it all assembled and put the unit, wireless headsets and wireless receiving unit on charge. After everything finished charging I reviewed the quick start guide, set...
  11. Finally Made The Plunge

    I finally decided to make the big plunge and ordered an Equinox 800, the 6" coil with lower rod and a power pack for extra reserve power. Got tired of living with the limitations of single frequency VLF detectors. It just seems like the guys with the Minelab detectors in my Metal detector club...
  12. Going over area I've searched multiple times before

    Today I decided to rehunt my front yard. I started out using my Bounty Hunter Legacy 3500 with a 8" concentric coil, marked the prospective targets with sticks, then used my Teknetics T2SE with the CORS Fortune 5.5x8 1/2"coil to verify and fine pinpoint the prospective targets prior to digging...
  13. Re: Discrimination Settings Boost on T2 Classic & T2SE and Boost Process on T2SE

    Re: Discrimination Settings Boost on T2 Classic & T2SE and Boost Process on T2SE Many of you have probably been wondering as I have about whether or not the T2SE gets a signal boost at discrimination settings above 50 or below 10 like the T2 Classic does. The answer to this question is yes it...
