New To This Forum And Just Received My Simplex +


Recommended Posts

I have just purchase and received the Simplex +. This detector is a upgrade addition to my already collection of detectors.

Thanks to all for the ID information that has been posted here. This will help me a lot. I have never had a detector with a DD coil before so I am trying to get use to how it react to coins. 

To all that has purchase the Simplex + has anyone notice the screen icons flicking or has a heylo look on the screen?  I notice this two days ago when I was out detecting.

I have already been blessed on my first outing with the Simplex and found a 1943 Walking Liberty Half Dollar. My first ever. I was just shocked.

That's all for now.  Everyone have a MERRY CHRISTMAS and stay safe...

Never heard of flickering on the screen, you have a video of that? Nokta opened up a 2nd service center. You may want to contact them. Congrats on the walking liberty!

The Simplex+ is certainly offers a lot of bang for your buck, really enjoying mine.  Are you talking about the auto backlighting coming on when over a target, or the actual icons?

That's my favorite coin design of all time but I've yet to find one while detecting (nor any other silver half).  That's a trophy case find for sure thanks to help from your Simplex.  How about posting a photo of it here or better yet on the Coins and Relics sub-forum?

Just had a thought that the "halo" effect on the screen is actually from the clear protective screen cover from when new - noticed it on mine.

Thanks for your comment. I will try to attach a photo.

I am wondering if you mean the TID reading bouncing on objects buried that give a mixed reading as I noticed the screen will do sort of a flash as you say.  But I believe it comes from the bouncing TID numerical bouncing around because when I get a hard hit with a object and the TID is constant, the screen does not have the slightest of flickering as you state.

      Just ran across this video. It blew my mind. Didn't know this was even possible. It only works for coins. My Nox and Vanquish struggle with this because they tend to pinpoint on the outside edge of the coils. The SP24 coil works better than the SP28. Wonder if the Deus or other detectors work the same?

      Greetings All,
      Has anyone switched to a carbon fiber lower shaft for their Simplex? I've read a few posts about people switching over to them, but do they make that much of a difference?

      I see a lot of comparisons between the Simplex and other mid price/mid level machines out there like the F75, AT Pro, etc. 
       
      These days it may be possible to find a used F75, AT Pro, etc for the price of a new Simplex or close. Maybe even with an extra small coil. Like a 5” DD or a 5x8. Throw in buying an extra coil for the Simplex and maybe even price. Simplex I think only 2 year warranty, so that will be gone eventually , non user/field replaceable battery. There are tons of arguments either way, more coil availability, supporting a US company (although buying second hand), Garrett and Fisher get back to you quickly and service pretty darn good even if you bought used. 
       
      I’m not a fan of my ACE300. It works. Just tones and buttons, display, not for me. So guessing the AT Pro would not be for me either. I love my F22 however. Guessing a bit different from the F75 but perhaps tones, VDI, etc is similar. I hear good things about how well balanced it is, was a benchmark in its day. I already have a 600 multi and Seahunter pulse and most of my hunting is in midwest parks and homesites so waterproof/salt not necessary. Although weatherproof is nice for rain!
       
      Would you get the used F75 or the Simplex?  Better yet, would you trade a Simplex for an F75 if the right deal came along? (I have a Simplex already but waiting for warm weather). Would anyone even make that trade?
      Thanks for your thoughts.

      Hello I have a simplex + that's almost a yr old I love it but recently it's giving me a hard time when charging it.. Seems to be a short in the adapter that has prongs on it. Has anyone else had issues with this? I'm so frustrated...
