So Dilek, Whatever Happened With The Multi Naming Contest?


Recommended Posts

After seeing a new post from others and NM about some new accessories, I started to ponder the old naming contest about a new multi freq. detector. We all have posted our thoughts and hopes on this new multi and a PI. First question, Did anyone win the contest? The date of start for said contest was September 21, 2018. That's 1014 days since its start. I'm not the smartest, But you would think you had the product developed and ready for the winning name, To give you some time for marketing. Lets say a year for printing, adds and a selling platform. (Frustrated) I know we all have said it just takes TIME, We want to see what the competition puts out first so we can make a better product. Blah, Blah. A lot of people participated in the contest hoping to actually name a new detector. (How cool would that be). It feels like NM left a lot of people hanging with a great marketing idea that just won't happen. I'm hoping this is not the case, I would love to see one of our members name a detector. I love my Kruzer and wouldn't trade it for anything,But after drifting through some of NM's Time lines, I'm wondering how much longer?

September 21, 2018 - Naming Contest                              October 8, 2020 - Missouri service center

February 28, 2019 - Georgia service center                      October 26, 2020 - New thermal thermometer

April 2, 2019 - pulse dive scuba                                          November 26, 2020 - Sand Scoop

July 31, 2019 - Simplex +                                                     January 11, 2021 - back pack and pp holster (no pricing)

July 7, 2020 - mini and midi hoard

I was just wondering out loud here, Has anyone heard any vaguery, innuendo, hints, insinuation, or whisper of any new detector coming from NM? 

To quote Simon (How long is too long) . AFTER 1014 DAYS I think it might be time to give some answers. 

Your thoughts and whispers are welcome to my ears

   I guess we can slap a name on the backpack or leg holster in the interim!🤣 I'll now put that into the same category as waiting for more coils for the Nox! 👍👍

Pointless to make a machine if all the names suck. Why bother spending all that money and try to market something that sounds bad? Just saying....

  • Steve Herschbach changed the title to So Dilek, Whatever Happened With The Multi Naming Contest?

Heck I’ll name it myself.

 Just give me to die for Pulse detector are a VLF beyond anything we have ever seen before.

 Please don’t blow smoke like some have in the past but when you get it it’s just short of a joke.

 I do remember the name I’d picked and that’s Lightning.

Hey, RR, did you mean Lighting or Lightning?

You're certainly free to pick either one, but I would think Lightning might be better.

      When I first got the Anfibio Multi. I read/heard of "D2 mode" of settings being used for Relic Hunting. Term was used on boards across the pond. That I can't fully understand terms being used and, they don't speak red-neck. Slight language barrier 🚧, to say the least but, in past I've gleamed info from. Well, several months later. I still find myself basically using 2 tones, pretty much at basic set-up. I do good with this but, reading the boards again. I'm ready to explore new settings. Can anyone break "D2 Mode" settings down in the simplest terms for me? Has anyone else ran across this discussion before? Point me in right direction at least?

      2 metal detectors under 1000$€£ 
      Both have won many compliments and have been talked a lot  since they were released in the market! Which one would YOU choose...? 🤔

      Had another good day detecting a rather large hay field. I was using the new superfly coil on the MK, and most of my finds were all ammo related. I found 12 keepers which means no plastic. They range in age from 1920's to the 1940's. the best one, which I have never found before was a  Winchester Nublack made from 1905 to 1938. The others were REM UMC 1915 to 1942, Winchester repeater 1896 to 1938, Winchester Leader 1933, Sears unknown 1920's to 1940's, Western Xpert 1914 to 1932. If you ever want to find the head stamp dates (Cartridge-corner.com) is the place to go. I  hit up on some buckshot and a older rifled slug, AKA Pumpkin ball or as my dad would say Punkin ball. The rifled slug was developed by Wilhelm Brenneke in 1898, Karl Foster designed a similar slug in 1937 and patented in 1947. They are the ones you find in most brands today. Of course I found the wonderful 22. This round was developed in 1845 by Louis Nicolas Flobert and introduced in 1887. This was the first rimfire it was in 6mm. Union Metallic Cartridge Co. perfected the 22 in 1884, And "Voila" we have the best selling cartridge in the world. I saved the best for last because they have a great history. Finding three colonial musket balls in one field for me just does not happen. Two of them look fired the other was a drop. That ball is in beautiful shape, you  can clearly see the sprue and the casting marks around the middle. I believe they are for the old and well distributed Brown Bess. It was produced from 1722 to 1838. Over 4,000,000 were made. This gun was used in every major conflict from the American Revolution to the American civil war. So the next time your out and find some boring old ammo, You just might find some cool history in your hand.

      2021 is starting out to be Not to bad (fingers crossed). Yesterday started out kinda cold and damp, but warmed up to around 54 at 11:30am. I told my wife I'd be back by 3 for Sunday roast chicken and mashed potatoes. I decided to hunt a patch of woods that had an early house that was razed in 1973. (second run at this place). The ground here is infested with iron, aluminum and copper flashing. I entered in and saw what seemed to be the skull of the Devil, a little off putting to say the least. It was the oddest deer skull I've ever encountered. Thinking this might be a bad omen I proceeded on. 1 crap target, 2 crap targets, old trap tag (OK). I've always had good luck detecting deer trails, so hit the closest one. The first 5 feet and boom, a solid copper coin tone. First coin a 1896 Indian Head. Good day already accomplished. Fifty yards away I got a weird 47-56 id on the machine, I almost didn't dig it, but it had that good coin tone. At 9 inches I had my doubt's for a coin, But when it popped out at 11, I almost fell over. This turned out to be an 1864, Which would explain the odd ID numbers. The rest of the time was uneventful, but that really didn't matter. I had two old coins in the bag and a great Sunday dinner and the Devil didn't ruin any of it.

      Wow I can't believe I got out yesterday to dig. It seems like work and the stress of things in 2020 took a toll on my detecting experiences for quite a while. I wanted a new coil for the MK and saw a post Kac made about the Nel Superfly, So I said what the heck I'll give it a try. This coil is 6 grams lighter than my 9 inch. I must say this coil is amazing!!! great depth and way better separation. So I went to give it a spin on a site I hunt that has some modern and 18th century history to it. (ball fields and farm fields). I swung for about 5 hours in the 35 degree weather, and found a bunch of coins,(1941 penny, 46 nickle) shot shells, suspender clip, fishing reel, and a fragmented old bell. I wish the bell was whole, because it was about 2'' in dia. The reel perplexes me because of the lack of water in the middle of a 20 acre field. Overall I had a really nice trip out, I was starting to forget how detecting can clear your mind. 
      PS Joe D can you please send some of the Florida warmth up here to PA.

      Can't really decide between the 2 of them!! Could someone with experience or knowledge among these help me? 
      It is going to be the only detector I will own for quite a period of time that's why I am so skeptical about it! Also I am a new member in this exiting hobby! Thanks in advance!
