  1. I have a former neighbor from my childhood ask my advice on a detector. He lives in Daytona Beach. He decided on the Simplex but as hard as I tried, didn't want to spend the extra money for the package with wireless headphones which my distributor has in stock and can dropship. They're out of the model without HPs until the next container comes in. He's only about an hour from Kellyco so I had him contact them. They told him he needed a dedicated beach and surf machine. The biggest problem with most multi-purpose detectors is they cancel out the salt but if there's heavy black sand deposits like after a storm, a single frequency VLF won't work without lowering the sensitivity and raising the coil. Even that's not guaranteed. I used to live in Southern California and under those conditions, you need a Multi-frequency or PI unit otherwise, you ain't hunting! It's always been my understanding that Florida beaches don't have the mineralization that we do on the West coast. Why wouldn't he be able to use the Simplex there? TIA! Walt
  2. The Anfibio 14 and 19 kHz have been discontinued. They are keeping the Multi-frequency model but it is not simultaneous MF like the Legend. I don't know why they didn't just modify the Anfibio rather than develop a whole new machine that closely resembles the Equinox. Walt
  3. I received this from my Distributor recently: “Dear Valued Distributors and Dealers, As planned, we have sent the test samples to many people around the world earlier this month and got some great feedbacks. We are currently in the process of updating the unit based on these feedbacks. We, just like you, would love to get it out sooner than later. However, we also know that putting the best product possible in the user’s hands MUST be the priority for all of us. We are hoping to start shipping in January with no confirmed date at this point. As I get more info from the team, I will keep you updated. Thank you for your understanding. HAVE A LEGENDARY 2022! Dilek Gonulay Director, Sales & Marketing” I remember asking them a couple of weeks ago why Nokta Makro didn’t make a pile of detectors and then do the announcement. Their reply was “to alert those considering a new machine, of their latest offering”. From what I remember, they ALL do this. However, if the only difference is going to be in the software, based on testing out in the field, then they could have released the Legend and then had an update shortly afterward. Just saying. Would it look good? Maybe not. You’d probably have people complaining that they should have waited until the Field Tests were done. You can’t please everyone! I just hope it arrives before my trip to Southern California at the end of January. I’d like to try it on the beach. Thanks! Walt
  4. I'm hoping to take it to Northern & Southern California towards the end of next month for a test run. I'll post my thoughts afterward. Thanks! Walt
  5. If their goal was to be better than the competition, I would have expected it to be water-proof to 16' like the Kruzer and Amfibio. Just saying! Thanks! Walt
  6. Does anyone have the Sierra Madre Program for the XLT? Thanks! Walt
  7. I received this a few days ago from my Distributor: KRUZER & MULTI KRUZER WILL COME TO END OF LIFE AS OF DECEMBER 31st! GOLD KRUZER WILL STAY IN THE LINE UP!!! ANFIBIO 14 AND 19 WILL ALSO BE DISCONTINUED AS OF DECEMBER 31st BUT ANFIBIO MULTI WILL STAY IN THE PRODUCT LINE-UP. Thanks! Walt
  8. I believe Dilek mentioned 2 for Beach mode in the Launch video. Walt
  9. No I don't. I mean, they were when I started selling detectors back in 2005. What I should have said was, "You're not including Fisher are you?" 😄 Thanks! Walt
  10. Are you including Fisher and the CX-21? Did they come out with something I'm not aware of? Thanks! Walt
  11. She did mention it in the broadcast. Something to the effect of, "You'll have to use wired headphones for diving as wireless doesn't work well underwater". Walt
  12. Dilek said during the Q&A at the end of the broadcast that there will be a 13" DD also. Walt
  13. Thanks, Steve. That's what I suspected. I know they're REALLY loud above water. I figured that was so you could hear sufficiently under water. I have a pair of Garrett headphones with volume control for land use. Walt
