"The Minelab Equinox is truly in a league of its own. In the short time I've been operating this machine, I've recovered deep coins and artifacts from iron infested sites that other machines simply cannot detect."

I’ve only gotten to use my new Equinox a couple of times since the purchase so far so good. I ordered the package with the Pro-Find 35. The website said it was in stock. After I placed the order, several days later, I received a phone call stating that the Pro-Find 35 had been out of stock for approximately 6 months and was on back order from MineLab. I was asked if I would accept a “better” pointer. I was told it would be a Garrett and if I wasn’t satisfied I could ship it back and then I could wait for a Pro Find 35 to come back into stock. I’ve had the set up for about 30 days. Both work fine but my OCD twitches every time I pull out the Garrett pointer. Would have given 5 stars if the pointer I ordered would have been in stock like the website said it was. And if I would have known the Pro Find wasn’t in stock ahead of my order I would have just bought the Equinox 800 closer to home.
Software Upgrade 3.0
What is new?
A new Single Frequency of 4 kHz has been added to the existing 5, 10, 15, 20 and 40 kHz options. This new 4 kHz frequency enhances the detection of large deep targets, particularly those found in
All other single and multi-frequency settings are unchanged in their performance.
