  1. Father's day beach hunt Treasure Island

    I moved away from this area and drove back this weekend to visit family for my birthday (and father's day) and figured I'd hunt some of my old favorite spots with a friend of mine. Swore up and down to my buddy that I regularly found rings in one particular spot here but he didn't seem...
  2. TI sat morning gold

    Hit TI (west fl) this morning and was rewarded with silence. Sand piled high, high tide, and sandy soft sand bars. Found a small section of hard ground at the first drop and pulled this up.
  3. Equinox vs CZ-21 test

    I was given a bag of around 75 pieces of jewelry to sort thru to test for a friend. I decided to first hit them with the metal detectors to see how they rang up. I removed any items that would stick to a magnet before testing. What I found was the following: MID TONE items on the CZ-21 rang...
  4. Equinox owners? CZ-21 or EQ800?

    I've been beach hunting with a CZ-21 for a couple years and I found all kinds of great stuff. I got an equinox thinking it would be great for dry sand AND water hunting. I sold my CZ-21 after using the equinox for awhile. Well, it is pretty good, I can identify most targets (pennies!) before...
  5. Saint Augustine, FL?

    Hi, I've finally moved from the gulf coast to the east coast, and am in the Saint Augustine area. Been here for almost a year now but haven't been able to detect because I broke my foot and had to get screws and a plate installed. I am finally reaching the point where I can start detecting...
  6. Saint Augustine trip

    Disregard ... just found Treasure Hunter's post
  7. Finally some erosion

    West coast of FL has been sanded in for ages now... yesterday my prediction came true.. I arrived to find some nice erosion and a fairly steep bank. Followed a fantastic coin line loaded with high and medium density targets (sinkers and quarters). Found one small toe ring before I had to...
  8. Single Freq gold numbers Dry Sand?

    I see gold rings all over the place with the equinox...between 9 and 21. My AT Pro was not as crazy with gold numbers which makes me think this is a result of mutlifreq processing. I may have missed it, but has anyone done a test along a series of gold rings, on each of the single frequencies...
  9. How to make waterproof headphones for Equinox

    These will work on the Equinox and are very loud. For those of you who can solder, enjoy! Can be built for $20 - $40 depending on how much you get the connector and wire for.
  10. Orlando credit card fraud?

    If you have had recently suffered from credit card fraud from Orlando purchases, please PM me. My you find gold in your scoop, Thanks
  11. Nice silver ring today...

    Found this with my EQ800... I was the only one of us three water hunters to have any luck today. This one will likely be a return...
  12. Fear Not the Overload Indicator

    Tonight I intentionally overloaded my machine to get the overload indicator in beach 2 mode. Then I air tested maximum depth with the indicator on and the indicator off. I FOUND NO DIFFERENCE AT ALL! Seems to me this is simply an indicator that an overload occurred... no reduction of depth...
  13. Stiffen lower shaft CZ-20/21?

    I don't use my CZ as much as I used to now that I have the EQ800, but when I do I find the lower shaft flex absolutely horrid. I've been thinking about epoxying a smaller diameter carbon shaft into the hole in the lower shaft to try to stiffen it up. Heck a wooden dowel and epoxy would even be...
  14. surprising air test findings

    So I've had a few tough hunts today ... and I found myself questioning whether the EQ800 really had the depth or if I was giving in to the hype. So I pulled out my CZ-21 and did a few air tests... the results were really surprising! What I found was the following: Auto tune on CZ-21 was FAR...
  15. Small gold missed by the pros

    Went water hunting yesterday, showed up a little late to see another guy hunting in the water. No big deal, he's beat us to it, we over slept. I elect not to bother him with useless chit chat, but when he gets out he begins lecturing my buddy about how he covered every single inch of bottom...
  16. Lets talk small ladies rings.

    I've tested a few small thin rings. 1) Small PT950 (95% platinum) diamond engagement ring: 3 inches, 4-5 2) Small 18K, thin band: 3 inches, 4-5 3) Small 10% IRID Platinum Diamond Engagement Ring (90% platinum): NOTHING. Tested repeatedly. One or two random hits on the edge of the coil. ?! I...
  17. Piezo vs waterproof speaker

    I have a set of waterproof headphones which were custom made in Europe for my Equinox. Problem is, when they are dry they extremely base heavy... almost ear splitting. The resonant frequency is a very uncomfortable mid tone, and terribly lacking in treble. When wet, they are high in treble...
  18. Been on the fence water hunting with the EQ800... but I found this video...

    ... which sort of made up my mind ... equinox not always as deep, but definitely picks up smaller rings and chains. Today I went back to my old CZ-21 to see how it would compare. It was honestly one of the worst hunts I've had since I started with the EQ800. I found zero ... the machine was...
  19. Found ring #2 in my front yard.

    Yesterday I spent some time playing with the 10khz verification method. I decided to dig anything which was repeatable in 10khz. This was my third hole... ring #2 for the equinox in the front yard. Its a junk ring but still impressed. Also found a 1943-P war nickel.
