Yeah I see Big Boys has them discounted. I wonder if that’s a mistake as with Nokta/Makro the MSRP is usually the lowest allowable advertised price. It may be right but I won’t be surprised to see it go up to $299. I guess we will find out soon. If so some people get an extra good deal. And if it really is going out the door for $254 well that’s a double wow! That’s only $2 more than a Garrett Ace 250.

Yeah, I’m set for detectors personally so much as I like the looks of this I’m still cleaning house of excess units!

No it is not a mistake... let me tell you shortly what is going on in the most honest way I can. In the past, we had the distributor control the pricing in the USA. Our  list prices (MSRPs) were advertised as the MAP price  and higher MSRPs was advertised for our products . As of early this year, we have implemented a new distribution and MAP policy which allows dealers to discount the product 15% off our MSRPs. Many customers think that we have lowered our prices in the USA which is not the case actually. As the manufacturer and the owner of the brand, we just took control of the pricing in the USA (as it is supposed to be) to make our products more competitive and affordable for users in the market. Hope it is clear now. So, yes the Simplex+ USA MAP Price is $254.15. Thank you!

What size/type do you prefer for water hunting?

A 9" would be perfect.  That size shouldn't need the large ribs that cause most of the resistance when swinging.

Edited by Jackpine
The X-Terra 9" concentric is one of the easiest to swing coils ever for water use.

Simply amazing. Thanks for the clarification Dilek. It’s nice at least one company answers questions directly with no fuss. You set the “Gold Standard” in that regard!

This is exactly what I was saying about Minelab being weird to me. A company rep having an online presence and answering questions and helping customers is the norm in online poker and is what I'm used to.

Unfortunately just the opposite in metal detector land and certainly not just Minelab. There have been some engineers mainly sort of take it on themselves to comment at times. Minelab did have one service person post on Findmall a few times but it was more an anomaly. The truth is very few people at metal detector companies actually metal detect and very few know as much as their customers about metal detecting or even their own products. Those that do may have no people skills. Throw in some fear at management level about what may be said and it's easy for a company to just issue a blanket gag policy. Easy, but rather a poor choice in this day and age in my opinion. Dilek has done more for her company than lots of dollars spent on ads by simply showing up now and then with sensible answers. I really respect her and the company for making that effort where others offer a cold shoulder.

Yeah, in the poker world the companies just hire players with good people skills. No idea why the detector companies don't do the same. It wouldn't cost much to hire a well respected detectorist as company rep. The benefit far out weighs the cost imho. And for the cost they also get someone sitting in on the planning stages letting them know what is important to their customers.

I do want to upgrade my Racer 2 for a machine I can take into the lakes and rivers, this may be the one.  

Most importantly, thank you Dilek for being a contributor and a voice for you company.  It certainly means a lot to me.

Brian.

Interesting that nobody has noticed the Simplex EZ Wander Wireless Module shown in the Simplex accessories page on the Nokta site.

Appears to be something along the lines of the WM08 module included with the EQ800 to allow the use of any corded headphone to be used wirelessly.

Hadn’t looked at the website yet but that is very interesting.   Wonder if it might work with the MKruzer???

The Green wireless headphones with with the MMK Anfibio and Simplex, so I bet these would as well. 

Perhaps if Dilek is reading this she could verify that?

      14 September 2019 (Europe, Africa, North and South America timezones) may be a noteworthy day in metal detecting history.  Both Nokta/Makro (at Detectival) and Minelab (on their own site as well as the sites of some partners) have given us details and hypberbole on their soon-to-be-released detectors -- Nokta/Makro Simpex and Minelab Vanquish.  There certainly are a lot of differences, as well as commonalities.  I look forward to others posting the details.  (But I'm sure I'll add my own after some more contemplation.)  "Competition is good" has been a mantra here for months if not years.  We have it now, at least in the near entry-level detector zone.

      I got a email the other day from the company telling me how great this new detector called Simplex is . I’ve already been reading about the Simplex on the forum here but I had to go over all that’s offered on it again.
       I don’t know where they ever came up with the name Simplex. Oh don’t get me wrong it looks as if a bird brain like me could run it  .What I want is how they can sell it at such a low price with all this Simplex has other than just detect ?
       I’ve had different businesses over the years and when I seen the price of the Simplex . I was thinking maybe they haven’t heard the words of profit/loss.
       I see it now, everybody and their brother plus their sister with her kids will be out there swinging this so called Simplex.
       I guess we could start a rumor that your hair will fall out if you use one . That wouldn’t do me any good half of mine is gone already.
       Dilek I wish you the very best on the sale of the Simplex. A guy like me with nine grandkids and my two youngest just got married I need a less expensive detector.
       The Best!

      Looks like the Simplex will be out before October. The Simplex will be featured as a raffle item at the October 5-6 Pound The Ground (Adirondack) Hunt

      Has there been anymore information on when/IF the Simplex will be released?
      Seems like it would be a decent detector to throw in the vehicle for flash hunts, or lunch hour detecting. Looks interesting, and seemed to be priced right to sell. Wonder what the holdup is on getting it released?
