  1. Not much anyone can do about, many counties its not an issue importing fakes. They are mainly marketed towards to those in the goldfields of Africa and the like. If they set up shop in the USA, then Garrett can go to town like Fisher did.
  2. Recovery is fast so you should hear separate low and a high tone. I found the smaller than stock coils work better for me.
  3. I am sure it will be a nice trendy name, that will easily be remembered and stick in your brain.
  4. Wayback when...I had a GTi1500 with the Imaging coil. Had a blast with it. Think it was my first digital type detector with an LCD screen. Finding coins left and right. Eventually gave it to my wife, she loved it.... At that point, picked up a Gti2500. Didn't find it any deeper than the GTi1500 but, like the threshold based all metal mode and the depth it provided. After about two weeks, it had to go. Push buttons were getting stuck, the weight was effecting my elbow and getting tiring to swing. After that, bought a White's MXT. Never looked back at getting a newer Garrett again. Have to admit, over the years had the urge to try another GTi2500, never acted on it. Just too many other brand detectors with better performance and search coil choices, at lower prices. Had many Garretts up to the ADS7 since the 1970's, really liked them for our hunting locations. The GTi2500 was the last straw. Would have been nice if they made a smaller Imaging coil.
  5. I was a field tester for a number of models. She said that in a personal email when we approached her to make a smaller concentric for the Simplex. Instead they gave us smaller DD coils. We also tried rallying the Simplex owners to drum up the interest in a smaller concentric. Lots of interest!! Be happy you are able to purchase a smaller DD coil.
  6. She mentioned there will be no concentric coils made for the Simplex. The circuitry hardware and software programming is designed around DD search coils. It cannot be changed to accept concentric coils. So if you want concentric coils, pick up a Kruzer, Anfibio or an Impact.
  7. Tejon 3 3/4 turn 50K, which Tesoro uses are---- Very hard to find!!! You may come across the 100K with the help of a resistor you can change the value to 50K.
  8. WE missed a lot of gold back in the 70's, we set the disc. high. So we could weed thru the trash looking for silver coins, leaving the gold for others. Big mistake!!
  9. Compass Forum was recovered and has been migrated to another website host's server. It is now up and running. New web address of the Compass Forum. http://www.compassforums.org/
  10. There is something in the works right now. Nabble has reduced the server size. So forums were given the axe unless orig. owner responded to Nabbles email.
  11. Found out Nabble. Forums the host of the Compass Forum was downsizing servers. The Compass Forum and others using Nabble as the host , will not re-activate the forum unless the original owner of the Compass Forum responds to their email. The orig. owner about 5 years ago quit and moved onto other hobbies and gave Joe full Admin rights to keep it going. When Joe stepped down, I took over. Ownership of the Compass Forum was never transfered to Joe. So we have no way of keeping it going. So the Compass Forum as it stands is no more.
  12. It's been down for a number of days. Haven't a clue why it has disappeared. http://compass-metal-detector-forum.548136.n2.nabble.com/
  13. Recycle, rebury for the next generation of detectorists. Besides, Dirt Fishing Regulation book should be checked to see if's a violation the rebury in your neighbors yard. Might be a non-native species and it's ecosystem being evasive.......................
  14. Yes good to hear some companies still care about their customers, will personal attention....
