Minelab Equinox Coil X-Ray. Is it really the half of machine?

Minelab called their Equinox coils ‘smart’, and basically these ones stand for the half of the detector itself. I need hardly say that such coil will cost a considerable amount, and you shouldn’t be surprised… It’s interesting, of course, what Minelab are saying but the truth can’t be hidden anyway. I just want to ask, “Really, are you serious about that, Minelab?” So let’s take a look at the cool pictures: an x-ray coil for the new Minelab Equinox. Continue reading

Coils under X-Ray. Has somebody run out of tin? ))

Does a coil have a booster inside or not? Only the good old X-ray can give the most accurate answer to this question. How exciting it is to look at these radiographs!

Whether you like it or not, but all of the wireless XP Deus coils come with the same circuit board. It doesn’t matter if it’s a 9-inch or 13-inch coil – electronics is one and the same.

And now think it over: what’s the difference between the XP Deus coils after all? Apart from the housing size and a number of winding turns? You can take such a circuit board, a battery and install them into the lower stem. Next, you’ll have a little left to do… just to make the simplest DD coil. And you’ll never pay $300-400 again for a coil! Here’s a photo report: dismantling of different XP Deus coils. Continue reading
