Kellyco seems to be selling the Simplex with Green wireless headphones and Pulsedive PP for $340. I just got one of the Pulsedives for my Nokta machines and have to say it is incredibly stable. Not as sensitive to tiny stuff like micro gold or foil bits but overall an awesome pointer. They work very well with the wireless headphones. Thought I would pass this on, I'm sure other dealers will probably have the same/similar offer.
I see NEL will be releasing a full coil range for the Simplex in December, should make it an even more versatile detector than it already is.
Also noticed that Detect-Ed is now making carbon fibre lower shafts for the SImplex, resolving the issue of lower shaft flex.
I notice that RNB now has a lithium battery pack for the Vanquish priced around $60.
I have been using RNB battery packs in my Etrac for years and probably will buy one of these Vanquish batteries, if there are no bugs needing to be worked out. I intend to keep the Vanquish in my car trunk and will only use it sporadically. Regular rechargeables don't seem to hold a charge if they are not used for a long time. In contrast, the RNB batteries seem to hold a charge indefinitely. I want to be confident that the detector is going to work even if it has been sitting unused in the car trunk for months.

I was thinking about getting another coil for my Simplex and I was just wondering if any of you have tried either one?
Kellyco has both for a little over a hundred but show a coil cover for them is 12 dollars . The only thing it said about the coils that they were DD coils.
I’m more into coin hunting with this detector so I’m thinking 8.5 but like to hear from anyone that has one are the other.
Heck post your opinion even if you don’t have any.

It may not be the best detector out of the competitors but it sure has the best coils!

So now, Garrett is back in the game and the Apex is suddenly interesting again. It's quite funny, it's not what Garrett did that makes the Apex now the best Multi Frequency entry level detector for coil selection, it's what they didn't do. By making it possible for aftermarket coil manufacturers they've dramatically improved their detectors desirability without doing anything themselves.
