Minelab Equinox 600 & Equinox 800 Review

Minelab realized that its deep E-Trac and CTX 3030 slow, bulky, heavy and voracious metal detectors are the last century, modern trends in the search world require metal detectors more flexibility, speed, compactness, convenience. Minelab was an attempt to combine all the best that is in modern devices, as a result of modern challenges released Minelab Equinox 600 and Minelab Equinox 800.

The General in Equinox is a straight three-bar arm with a handle with a built-in battery (with a margin of 10 hours), a large screen with an extended backlight which displays a semicircular scale of discrimination, VDI object, it is possible to work at different frequencies, as well as in multi-frequency mode, implemented manual and automatic ground balance, and also, if you believe the manufacturer just a fantastic balance that makes the search on the beach better than ever, setting the response rate, the threshold tone, sound response, volume, noise. All Minelab Equinox amphibians and can operate both on land and under water at a depth of 3 meters and are equipped with 11 inch DD type coils.

Despite the loud presentation of Minelab Equinox (he came down from the sky in a place with a parachutist, some present say that over the head of the last towered nimbus) the device was not ready, the firmware test, and the armrest with a place for PowerBank is not ready at all, it was necessary to install the armrest X-Terra.

In Minelab metal detectors, the speed of response has always been a problem, the existing settings (for example, Fast in Minelab Explorer SE) in reality have had little effect and the device was simply blind to the iron-stained areas. In Minelab Equinox, this problem is solved by adjusting the recovery rate, which can be from 1 to 8.
