Minelab EQX 11 DD

In-line filter for Minelab Equinox coil. A good thing?

The Minelab Equinox owners have come up with a suggestion – to add an in-line filter to the coil cable. This poses two questions at once: how can this filter help you increase the amount of good finds? And, if it really works, why don’t other machines have this thing yet? Dear expert metal detector users, please give us your opinions about the viability of this improvement to help our readers decide – whether or not they should put such dirt-cheap filters on their devices or, the other way around, should avoid wasting time on a fool’s errand.

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.

Minelab Equinox 800 in Ground Depth Test. Is it a revolution?

Here’s testing the ground depth while using the Minelab Equinox 800 with an EQX 11 DD coil. And this machine has no choice but to show revolutionary results – Minelab’s promise given obliges them to stand by their words now. Oh, I am really on tiptoes with eagerness to try the new Equinox 800 and surpass some poor fellow with his miserable Garrett AT Max or third-rate XP Deus! Ain’t that right, Minelab? I will easily make mincemeat of them, won’t I? Continue reading

Comparison: Makro Multi Kruzer vs Minelab Equinox 800. Ground test

Here’s a comparison: Makro Multi Kruzer vs Minelab Equinox 800. Which machine sees deeper and doesn’t read non-ferrous objects as ferrous ones? Is it the Makro Multi Kruzer? Or maybe the Minelab Equinox 800? Or it makes no sense to draw a comparison when there is the great and mighty XP Deus nearby? Let’s see an interesting ground test! Continue reading

Comparison: Minelab Equinox 600 vs Minelab E-Trac. Test

Minelab Equinox 800 vs Minelab E-Trac: which one is better? The manufacturer positions its new machine as the one between the X-Terra 705 and Safari in the product lineup. So the old Minelab E-Trac should be more awesome than the new Minelab Equinox 800. But it’s from a theoretical point of view, let’s see how it works in practice. By the way, which of these two units sees deeper? Continue reading
