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

Minelab Go-Find coil cover made from rubber hot-water bottle

It’s a problem to find a cover for the Minelab Go-Find coil as it isn’t supplied with the latter. The solution can be found only if you do a coil cover yourself. And so every enthusiast chooses his own option. For instance, making a coil cover from his granny’s rubber hot-water bottle. Looks good but what is to be done with its weight? 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?

GTX3030: Chinese-made fake Minelab CTX 3030. Did it really happen?

A GTX3030 metal detector appeared on Chinese websites. It’s strange but this one looks a bit similar to the already existing Minelab CTX 3030. Don’t pay attention, it’s just a coincidence.

I wonder whether Chinese could really fake the Minelab CTX 3030? Or they are selling e-waste in the likeness of a detector? Continue reading
