My 10th hunt yesterday (3/16) with the Equinox gave me $3.37 in clad... and the slower style hunting pays off again! A large gorilla zoo token the size of a silver dollar, A silver stamped 925 pendant that says its a girl on one side and a hand with a small pink/purple stone on the other also with a 925 stamp.

New user notes... the ring and the pendant are both stamped and they came in right around 23... I found them almost back to back right after lowering the sensitivity to 17... and they came in with nice clear tones....

Well done on the silvers, it sucks when the arms start giving a person pain.
I've read where these machines are hard on some folks arms, something to do with the shaft or the weight balance of the machine.

Thanks trying to find just enough clad to in case I do not find anything else... and I already use a harness too... Getting more used to the Equinox... just I think I overdue it sometimes... Going super slow... trying to learn all the tones... the readings...not reliable way to much cross over...

Excellent finds! It's going to keep getting better as you become even more familiar with the Nox- wishing you continued success!
