Minelab EQX 15 DD coil (compared to EQX 11 DD). Feedback

Minelab call their coils for the Equinox detector as “smart”. However, the manufacturer clearly didn’t expect that hobby enthusiasts would put their neat piece of work first thing in the x-ray machine. I want so much to believe that the word smart is not just defence against manufacturers of aftermarket coils, and not yet another marketing trick in order to slap an extra $300 on top of their coil’s price. By the way, have you seen how much the coils for the Minelab Equinox 600 and Minelab Equinox 800 cost? Check it out and you’ll respect great and mighty Minelab again. Continue reading

Comparison: Nokta Anfibio Multi vs Minelab Equinox. Depth test

Here’s a red hot depth test: the Nokta Anfibio Multi vs Minelab Equinox 800 comparison. These two are the real giants attracting huge interest from metal detector users. And if Fisher doesn’t release its smart machine (at a price tag up to $999) until spring, sure as hell these two only will become the favorites of the upcoming 2019 season. Continue reading

Minelab Pro-Find 35 vs XP MI-6. Depth comparison

On the one hand, it’s a usual comparative test of the Minelab Pro-Find 35, XP MI-6 and Garrett Pro-Pointer AT probes. All three of these units can be submerged in water, are relatively new (fresh models) and have won definite recognition from treasure hunters. Deservedly or not, this is of no interest to us at the moment. It’s the other side of the coin that is of interest. The XP MI-6 is very often called the extra deep device. But it doesn’t fully reflect the actual situation. Yes, the probe is deep enough, but not so deep that you overpay for it. Moreover, you should be aware that even the most expensive (feature packed, recognized, widely promoted etc.) pinpointers can miss targets. Are you surprised? Take a look at this short test – very informative, +25 to any detectorist’s karma guaranteed. Continue reading

Pinpointer of the future (NEW 2018). You’ll be finger searching!

This blog contains some posts about smart metal detectors of the future, and it’s definitely a good thing. But why today is nobody speaking about a smart pinpointer, or at least the one of the future? As it’s an open question which of these two will become smarter first. So, let’s take a look at… I don’t even know how to call it properly. This probe can’t be called smart, but surely nobody will argue that it’s a unit that has come from the future. Just imagine: you put the pinpointer on your finger like a usual ring and turn into a hero – Detectorist-Man. Just look at this interesting and unexpected solution, you certainly haven’t seen such a conceptual idea before: Continue reading
