  • Was the power level down on all 3 detectors, or just the AT Pro?

    • Good point but the AT Pro is not known to be a deep machine.

      • How deep are most detectors supposed to go?? I live in South Oz and am new to detecting and my AT Pro which I found out after purchase I should have got the At Pro international for the ground mineralization here , but at the beach gets pretty far down… I get coins of the beach at 15 to 18-19 and pulled a old pipe (the wacky kind) ???? out of a hole that was underneath a pretty big rock..big enough I strained to move the rock and the hole had to be in the twenties… how deep would i expect the Equinox to go on the beach???

  • HOCUS POKUS

    Way to many FAKE NEWS videos on this machine. May as well just turn on the TV If I want to watch BS. When will someone take it out and show some real detecting in real world situations and stop creating these videos that try to show how bad the completion is. SHOW ME THE TRUTH. I can make your machine look bad against my 1980 Radioshack detector if I want to also if you like.

  • I knew the AT Pro would not win a depth test. It is an average depth machine at best. Instead of an AT pro you should have used an Nokta Impact or a Makro Kruzer.

    • Or use the AT Gold or AT Max, both of which have a “true” all metal mode and go much deeper. Regardless, put the machine to full power for Pete sake.

      • Yeah, looks like the At Pro is two or three notches down. That’s at least an inch taken off.

  • AT MAX 722.45$
    EQUINOX800 899.00$
    XP DEUS 1.520.00$
    There is a difference in price.
    Exclude xp deus!

  • Here is my issue I use the XP Deus and the AT Pro and I will say the XP Deus runs circles all day around the AT Pro. In these videos I would agree that the ST Pro is substandard to the Equinox 800 at it Pro Zero mode no matter the depth for gold, coins clad or silver, etc….but in these videos he plainly states that the XP Deus is in its standard mode and the Equinox 800 is in Gold mode when testing for gold and another mode when testing for other coins but never adjusts the XP Deus to any other mode? The guy needs to learn how to the XP Deus properly and I am more then sure that he will find that the XP Deus will out perform the Equinox 800 All day long…..

  • Awesome…can someone with a equinox compare the equinox with the millions of people who do not have one? Ya it’s a real problem that mine lab just keep sticking their heads in the sand when confronted. I think they should recall all there equinoxes to add a new feature. They can put a trigger
    When you pull it mode1 find an equinox, mode 2 find a minelab employee who have an actual answer to a question mode 3 well that we can keep a secret for now…
