Got the equinox and magaged to get out with it a coupe of times, obviously still learning it. Still digging a lot of iron tho as deep iron will come thru clear as a bell as a good signal.
Tried altering the iron mask but still havenít found a way yet on how to discriminate it .
Any advise would help please.
Thanks

Looks like an interesting machine but I donít understand all the hype,itís like the holy grail of detectors and minelab Iíve heard that their costumer service isnít great.

Some iron just will not be ignored, by machine or you, if you donít want to risk loosing a good dig.
I remember our old friend Geoff trying to explain to us mortals why this happened. As far as I can remember is was along the lines of old iron in the ground degrading over time. As that happens the iron oxidises and flakes and the chemical composition changes so you get a different signal. Now I may have turn his explanation inside out, forgive me if I have, but there by the laws of physics is what and why.
I took my Nox 600 to a field Iíve been to many times with other machines. A field Iíve always thought I should find something in but never have and yesterday was no different. I must conclude Iím in the wrong field  Roll Eyes
It was an interesting outing from a learning point of view. The Nox in Field 1 & 2, Park 1 & 2 will still pick up iron. Just for a giggle I thought what about All Metal. Great. A quick press of the button and instantly you get a lovely bass tone so you know whatís there.
The biggest problem to get over, I found, is the numbers that come up. Numbers that with previous Minelabs we would dig on the Nox seem to be mainly junk. Like 18 being iron ! Shocked
Will be interesting to go somewhere else, where I might find a keeper and see how it reacts. Easy to use machine, big learning curve. The Blue Tooth is great by the way. Ear pods much more comfy than bulky ear muffs. The ones with the package look like fair-ground el-cheapos.

Do you find it a nice light machine?

I'm interested in one of these because of the recovery times - I've got one site where most signals are in the top inch - it's to full of iron and black soil that whatever machine I use it pings all the time -although I've had two hammered last year from it, plus some 400 buttons or so. I went there on Sunday (farmer has just ploughed it) and pulled out a piece of iron plate over a foot long - so the Nox's apparent recovery is of interest to me (I'm also using too big a coil on my ETRAC, but I know that!).

It does what it says on the box. Iím well impressed. I set up a test run at home with different coins and a couple of other bits in between, brass, stainless steel etc.
All in a line, like on YouTube, with just a few inches between them.
It was a bit like a magic trick. Ping, ping, ping, pong, ping, ping, pong. John was fascinated and watched in awe. The faster I swung the faster the sounds.
The numbers rolled up and down that fast I couldnít keep up with them. Then I noted the number on the £2 coin and stoped as soon as it came up, pressed the pin point and zeroíd in on it. I was also impressed how it held the number while the pin point was on ignoring the other objects. It did the same in the field yesterday so no fluke.
So far Iím very impressed in general. Except for the ear phones. They really are awfull but Iíd already made up my mind to go wireless before ordered, no transmitter needed. After finding out that the 600 uses all 5 frequencies in auto I wonder why so many are buying the 800 and spending another £200 just so they can detect solely in 2 other frequencies. It isnít as if thereís that much gold lying around !
Go on get one ordered, you know you want to  Grin

I do want to buy one, but I also have to pay for my car Sad - that's in June, so I'm not meant to spend any money until that's paid off Smiley

I did think about the 600, but having found some gold, I'm interested to see if there was any other that I missed - and I've never found a gold (or indeed a silver) ring. Don't really care about the wireless bit......
