I get asked many times a day what is the difference between the Minelab Equinox 600 and the Minelab Equinox 800. Many people just want a good all around metal detector that is great on the pocket book but competes with the big dogs. A lot to ask but the Minelab Equinox delivers with its different models and lineup.
The EQUINOX 600 is limited to 5 kHz, 10 kHz, and 15 kHz single frequencies and leaves out the super cool wireless headphone option. Although you can add the Minelab Equinox wireless headphones set separately that will be available this summer. They both still work the same way and have no noticeable difference in the way they detect or depth. Great price and options for a good light metal detector.
The most in your face and obvious option is the wireless headphones the Equinox
As parents, often times it's difficult to find new and exciting things to do with our kids in this technology age. One of the best things we've heard from our customers is that their kids absolutely love to go out and metal detect with their parents!
Metal detecting is great for the younger generation, you can use it as a tool to teach history, create excitement hunting for treasure, and get some great physical exercise all while spending quality time with your children.
While younger children may not be able to handle full size metal detectors, letting them help with a pinpointer or hand digging tool is a great way to include them in your hobby and let them share the excitement of your finds. we also offer a great selection of cheaper detectors that are really light weight and easy to use for children around 11 and up. The Garrett Ace series would be a fantastic starting point for early teenagers
