I think that the EQUINOX 600 is being somewhat overlooked because it’s not the “top model” but, in my opinion, it is incredible value for a remarkably low price. I hope this blog will clear up any confusion and, in the process, show why I think the EQUINOX 600 deserves a second look by some people…The most obvious difference is what comes in the box.

“It’s really hard to explain the feeling,” said Mark as he watched the 17-year-old pace a playground with a metal detector in his hand. “Getting somebody else involved in the hobby, it just brings a smile to your face. This is awesome.” Dylan Ciesla has autism. He stumbled across Pettit’s Facebook photos of items he’d dug up using his metal detector.

Steve Styles walks along the surf line, sweeping the round coil of a Garrett ACE 300 metal detector back and forth across the sand. He listens for the telling beep-beep-beep in his earphones that will alert him to the possibility that he’s discovered something, perhaps of value.
