Just curious if anyone knows how many Equinox's have been sold since it's inception and if there is a breakdown of how many 600's vs 800's respectively have been purchased? I also wonder how it ranks as one of the best selling detectors? Anyway, just being curious....

Minelab is the only one who knows the number of sales and the breakdown.

Figured that the number of sales were probably not listed anywhere but was just curious none the less. Ya never know unless you ask. By the way, love your avatar!!! My stepson is in the Marine Corps and stationed at Camp Le Jejune, NC.

I remember reading a post where someone talked to customer service and asked that question and the rep stated that they are selling more now then they were when it came out 2017- 20 18. Of course this is third or fourth had info so who knows? But it would kind of make sense. I have notices a lot of early thread comments in late 2017 and 2018 a lot of people were really bashing the Equinox saying it could not possibly be as good as their current model of detector. Funny, I remember a lot of the users names of those early Equinox bashers and look at their profiles and see they own a 600 or 800.

Part of the problem especially with the 800 was that people (like me) would buy one and not really know how to set it up. And more often than not my either copied settings or what I thought were good settings were not for the sites I was hunting. I was essentially using a badly tuned 800 through ignorance and thus was not having very much success with the 800 comparted to my trusty AT Pro.

Some people advised you should just noise cancel, ground balance and pick one of the standard modes. Back then, I thought that is for total beginners and I had been detecting for many, many years. Wrong!!!! The 800 is a very fine detector in the standard modes. It takes a while to learn to master the 800 for some (like me). Wasted 3 months or more trying to tweak advanced settings and really screwing things up.

So yes, I can see now it still selling well as people report their successes on the various metal detecting forums and on their youtube metal detecting videos.

AGREED! The Equinox 600 and Equinox 800 are outstanding in the presets. Very easy to use and learn.

When I worked for Minelab I could get the info but that ended 3 years ago, and stopped working for Kellyco 2 years ago. Equinox is or was their most popular detector sold at that time. Bart is better position to say if he sells more Equinox than other Minelab models.
