Merry Christmas To Me, There's RINGS in the Scoop!

So I got a NOX for Christmas. OH MY is this the most fun I have had in a long time. We are stationed in Okinawa, Japan and I have been out detecting EVERY DAY since. My hands are killing me. The machine isn't heavy, I haven't received my graphite handle for my sand scoop so I have to use a hand trowel and a plastic hand scoop. I laugh out loud when I find the tiniest of metal junk. I have picked up so many pull tabs, old and new style, bottle caps and can slaw. Grommets, screws, and washers. Aluminum foil and cans. I have thrown away ten pounds of trash, easy. Now to the good stuff. I have found so many coins and rings. A couple of American coins, about $30 in Japanese Yen, a Euro, Thai and Korean coins. I have found seven rings, four of them sterling silver and one of them 14k white gold. The rest are bling. I have also found several bling earrings and one sterling silver bangle bracelet with a pretty stone in it. I have quite the toy car collection now. Sunday I was detecting on a popular tourist beach and a family from Taiwan asked me about my detecting. I found a bobby pin while they were right there with me. Then I found a 100Yen coin and the little boy (10-12) was very interested. He walked with me and I let him try. He couldn't do it for too long so I took over the swinging and let him do the digging. We found a car and he was Over the Moon. Can you tell I am enjoying my new hobby? I highly recommend the Minelab Equinox 800. The technology of metal detecting is new to me so learning how to fine toon my machine is difficult for me. I feel like the user manual assumes the user 'gets it'. I will figure it out, right now I am just having fun chasing shiny objects. I will eventually make videos so you can find me at MermaidTreasure Hunter!

Great Product and an awesome price!!!

This is one awesome detector, it lives up to all the reviews that I read about it... took it out for the first time tonight after work and was able to find numerous items in the short time I got to try it....now I didn't find gold or silver, but it is very sensitive, and unfortunately a storm blew in and I was in work cloths and had to leave the beach and get back to my car. Can't wait for my first day off and a full day on the beach!!! Well got my first day off and spent a whole day out. Very accurate in defining targets. A quarter gives a solid 30, a 10K gold and diamond ring a solid 17. One tip, if you get a fluttering signal, check it anyway. A ring or round coin will give a solid strong signal, while a chain has a fluttering signal because of the irregular shape. This thing soon pay for itself!!!! Love my Nox 800!!!!

Great detector!

I definitely recommend this thing! Found numerous civil war relics, coins, and cannonballs! A little on the hard side to figure out...but once you?ve got it down pat, your good to go! Tells me exactly what I?m about to dig. I also recommend NOT getting the ?minelab pinpointer? but instead, for the same price, get the ?Garrett pro-pointer AT?. They seem to make a great pair!
Overall a great detector!

This thing is a BEAST

This thing is a Beast in the Iron! The recovery speeds are amazing. I find more relics in those "hunted out" colonial foundations that are infested with cut nails and other iron. Not only is it good in that arena but just about any where you use it. In one of the photos I posted you can see a 1st year Merc Dime 1916 in the hole. That coin was DEEP. At about 10 inches on edge that machine banged it. Not only that but I had been over that yard 3 or 4 times with my AT Pro and went back with the NOX 800 and found that Merc....The 1870 Indian Head Penny.....2 flat buttons....and a cpl other clad coins that the AT totally missed. Love this machine. Was easy to learn with time and the menus are easy to navigate. Multifrequency is sick! Love this machine. Just do yourself a favor and buy it!

Large Learning Curve Ahead

*update August 2020: I have overcome the learning curve and am accustomed to the machine now. It probably took about 20 hours of digging everything to understand what it was telling me before I felt comfortable enough to skip targets. However, you should never skip targets at the beach! I am using the stock coil and it loves the shallow water. I have pulled 4 rings in one day by not skipping any signal and each one was different target ID. The below review still applies, so just be patient with it. Turn on and learn.

If I could describe it in short, I would say it has the software power of the e-trac, and the hardware of the x-terra lineup.

I used to use both of those detectors and this one suffices just fine. It is a good value for the money especially when compared to the ctx3030. I have read reviews where the water has gotten through the seals but have never experienced it myself. As far as performance, it has a very large learning curve. Like I mentioned, I used the e-trac before and for whatever reason this one seems to be more difficult. I just put it in whatever mode I am hunting in and go.

If you're anywhere near powerlines, it will not function correctly. It refuses to work whatsoever.

I will most likely use mine for the beach or large fields since it is way too sensitive to use in trashy parks unless you have serious patience. For those applications I would consider buying the small coil sold separately.
