Minelab Equinox 800 Gold Chain Test (+ XP Deus)

A chain is a very difficult target for any metal detector. The point is that the machine sees each chain link separately. And if your device can’t detect chains, it simply hasn’t enough sensitivity. But if on top of all this a chain is made of gold, your detector’s essential capabilities – accurate discrimination and sensitivity to super-tiny targets – should come into play. Here’s an illustrative test of how the Minelab Equinox 800 is seeing a gold chain. Plus, the similar test: comparison with an XP Deus. Continue reading

Comparison: Minelab Equinox 800 vs XP Deus vs Minelab CTX 3030

It’s time to know the whole truth about the new Minelab Equinox 800. Are you ready for it? Won’t you fall down in a faint, call a doctor, and all that stuff?

Fisher F-Pulse Secrets. A pricey pinpointer

I don’t know how good a new Minelab PRO-Find 35 is, it hasn’t reached my hands yet (I have already ordered and am waiting for it to arrive). But one thing I can say for sure: the latest new probes are obviously better than the previous ones. This is in reference to the XP MI-6, Minelab PRO-Find 15, Minelab PRO-Find 35, Teknetics Tek-Point, and Fisher F-Pulse. And each of them comes not without secret. Continue reading

Fisher F-Pulse Review in practice (+ opinions)

It’s really a shame that the MD-Hunter blog didn’t exist in the ’60s. We would have known for certain who and when was the first to make (and set to launch for sale) a pinpointer. As now it is anybody’s guess… Garrett, Fisher, or White’s? Today, any serious MD manufacturer has at least one probe in its lineup. Interestingly, it is not so simple to make a pinpointer. For instance, Nel promised to manufacture a super probe but failed. XP has managed to produce its pinpointer just now. Besides, this year (2017) we have seen 5 new devices at once: the XP MI-6, Minelab PRO-Find 35 / 15, Tenetics Tek-Point, and Fisher F-Pulse. Do you know what unites them? Great depth and ability to withstand submersion. Continue reading

Fisher F-Pulse Photo Review and my first impression

I took the Fisher F-Pulse (same as the Teknetics Tek-Point) in my hands, and… at max sensitivity it turned out to be a real ‘Sword of the Jedi’. This device can definitely stand comparison with some inexpensive metal detector. Do you have a Garrett ACE 250 with a stock coil? I am going to you then and rip you to shreds, in terms of depth )) Continue reading
