Understanding the Minelab Equinox “2.0” (F2) Upgrade

A Few Notes on the Minelab Equinox 2.0 Upgrade While the “2.0” upgrade for the Minelab Equinox has great smoothness and rejection of alloys, there are some audio and speed consequences at the higher settings.  It rejects most  bottlecaps when set to “6.”  At “9” there is also rejection of more complex alloys such as […]

Some Gold from the Last Few Years

…quite a few actually.  During that period I used the CZ20, the Dual Field, The Barracuda, the Goldquest, Sovereign, and more recently the CTX3030.   If I had to pick a favorite it would be the Dual Field. Good Luck Detecting! cjc

Some Deep Coin Methods for the Equinox and Anfibio

Its unbelievable what these new super fast machines like the Equinox and Anfibio Multi can do at the old sites.   Anywhere you have old, original ground that’s produced before is worth “having another crack at” with one of these machines.  I’ve had good results with both by doing a couple of things: 1/ If I’m […]

Some Gold: Equinox, CTX and Excalibur / WOT

Still learning with the Equinox but getting better and better results.   About 8 of these are Equinox finds.  The high frequencies in the mix bring up a lot of ground noises and small micro conductors.  It’s a good consistency checker though especially when you learn to use the cross sweep.  Kind of wish that there […]

Securing Your Coils for Travel.

Seeing so many horror stories (and pictures) of damaged coils these day thought I would post this.   Even the trunk of a car can be a dangerous place for a coil with stuff being knocked around.  This is a good way to protect your coil once and for all.  Take a length of pool noodle […]

Some Gold with the Equinox

Not a bad haul–1.9 gr. pendant 14k, 8.3 gr. band 18k 4.2 gr. band 14k, and a 14k men’s ring with a little rock 7 gr.   Using an “undertune” B2 system with 2 tone to search (very lively–almost like a pulse) and 50 tone to confirm some targets.  A tip: I have not tested any […]
