    I still don't ununderstand why they wouldn't have it out on shelves before Christmas?

    Thanks for the notice! I think I might bite. Any idea how long it will be to get one if you did not pre-order?

    A long time. BUT, watch the classifieds, getting a lightly used one might save a lot of time and money. Some people just buy, try, and sell.

    I'm not ready to sell the Deus yet , but I will be looking forward to Equinox field reports from the good folks on this forum. If it's a game changer with regards to iron masking, then I will jump on that bandwagon quickly.

    Joe Dirt has the right idea. Like any new toy, some people just got to have it, even if they have no real use for it. There maybe good deals to be found on hardly used units even before spring arrives.
    Oldest find: 5,000 year old copper spearhead
    Oldest coin: 1699 William III halfpenny
    Purdiest coin: 1832 Capped Bust quarter
    Coolest find: USA button with blue threads still on shank

    I sold my 3030 and have the Equinox pre-ordered with all 3 coils. Hopefully the coils are released at the same time.

    I doubt I'll sell my two Deus setups even if I like the Equinox.

    Bart, from bigboyshobbies, just told me, "Minelab keeps pushing back the date. Not at jan 31st. Rumor is they are having major issues."

    I pre-ordered an 800 the day after it was released, and am #1 on my Dealers list. Considering my ground is completely frozen, I really don't care how long it takes.
