Had this Irish Eddie penny type 6 I think but with a blundered reverse legend on some quite rough land with the Deus and Hf coil the other morning, was happy with the result :thumbsup:

Next day, I went out with the new Equinox, been out for just around an hour with it before but had about 3 hours straight and to be honest...........I didnt like it.
Am so used to the lightweight, fast Deus that the Equinox just seemed so cumbersom and slow. Am not going to give up with it though as 10 million people cant be wrong but I was so glad to have a couple of hours with the Deus to finish off.

I did an area of rain compacted sandy soil that I had previously done with the Deus expecting loads of new targets but it didnt happen, had one very deep old foil lid that the Deus would not of got but that was about it, no more targets.

I went on a stubble field next door and was getting more signals but had not gone over this with the Deus and the nox just seemed slow, slow to swing and slow to react, had it on reactivity speed 3 ......,lots more to learn I think, am not getting rid of the Deus yet :lol: :lol: :lol:

Reactivity 3 on the Nox I guess is like 1 on the Deus, a setting of 5 would be much better and still miss nowt. Nice find. :thumbsup:

Phil you turn coat :lol: I’m hearing very strong rumours of a new XP machine in the next 6 months too ;)

Lovely coin! I never seem to get Irish or Scottish hammered coins but would love one. Looking forward to seeing what else you dig up in the next few weeks. The soil conditions are great right now - we just need the rest harvested and the stubble to be harrowed and it’ll be perfect for good finds :thumbsup:
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

You find so much Roman stuff, Phil, that I forget you're pretty nifty at finding hammered too :D

Never having held a Nox I don't know about weight difference but just a few extra ounces will make a difference, especially over a long session. It's probably a case of perseverance and simply getting used to it after so long with the super-light Deus. You have a great combination of machines there and hopefully it'll work out for you :thumbsup:

It will probably be the dogs danglies, and you’ll not get much change out of £2K. I’ll expect to see plenty of second hand Nox machines on the market when the Youtuber’s videos come out showing cut halves being found at a depth of 6 feet :lol: :lol:

Cheers John, it wasnt the weight really, more the general shape and arrangement of the thing, had to modify the way I get a target out a bit, its a lot more cumbersome but I think your right, a bit of perseverance is needed :thumbsup:

Cheers shaggy, they are a good looking coin indeed, just a shame this one is a bit flat in places :thumbsup:
