NEW TREASURE HUNTER
“This is a metal detector, we are detectorists" is the catchline of Toby Jones’ character Lance Stater from the wonderful BBC4 series Detectorists. In the first two series, Lance uses a Minelab metal detector. In the third and final series, due by the end of 2017, maybe Lance will be using the new Minelab EQUINOX Metal Detector. The Australian company have just announced their latest all-terrain, multi-purpose detector designed for the serious coin and treasure hunter. There are two models, the EQUINOX 600 has three detect modes (Park, Field, Beach) and features Minelab's Multi-IQ simultaneous multi-frequency technology with four frequency options (5kHz, 10kHz, 15kHz, Multi) and wired headphones. The high end model, EQUINOX 800, has four detect modes (Park, Field, Beach, Gold), six frequency options (5kHz, 10kHz, 15kHz, 20kHz, 40kHz, Multi), and comes with a bluetooth headphones setup.
