Gregg, the APEX and the Viper .... a Terrible Trio.

May 19, 2020 07:18AM avatar
Every time I look at a pic of the Apex, I sure like what I see. If anything, Garrett sure made a nice looking machine, the physical package, the display.........heck that alone makes ya wanna get one.
I sure can't argue with that because I think it lokks pretty darn good myself. I know I aqm going to get one with the Z-Lynk headphones.

Every year I tell myself no more detectors, but I guess 2020 will turn out to be no different than previous years.
Every YEAR!! How about me hearing that on a monthly or weekly or every couple of days basis.

Guess I'll prob get one down the road. Will be fun to have a machine you can shift gears or just go automatic. Will be a fun machine to go up against Monte and his V540.......that can't shift gears and stuck in automatic.
Yes, it might be interesting, but don't forget I also plan to get an APEX in my hands as well. Then I'll know which is the better of the two for a particular task. Also, if Garrett doesn't get a smaller coil out for it, the V-540 has an edge since the Pro Pack comes with a really nice 5X8 DD coil for trashier or brushier sites.

He could try to come at me with the Simplex but he is stuck in 1st gear (12Khz) so I could just take my thumb and click my Apex into high gear (20Khz) and easily stay ahead.
High or Low gear, you'd be shifting an equal distance either way from 12.5 kHz ... and I think George & I would appreciate th 12. kHz design choice of the Simplex +. George? Oh, yes, I'm referring to George Payne the well respected design engineer. He knew a good deal about frequencies and optimum general-purpose choices.

Yes, by "shifting gears" it will be good for your health. It will eliminate those frequent long walks you take in ghosts towns to go back to your pick-up and change detectors ... with different frequencies.smiling smiley

I see some fun times in the future out at Rippville.
Yep, instead of CoRe Vs CoRe it will be APEX vs APEX, then just what modes and frequencies we each pick.

The one thing I really hope for is that the MS 3 wireless Garrett headphones sound bold and put out some good/loud volume.
Hoping so as well. I know the wireless headphones with the XP ORX and Minelab Vanquish 540 fit that description pretty well.

Well, Monte, ya got until some time in July to try and figure out a game plan on how ya might go up against me, the Apex and a Viper.........
Probably by the end of July or start of August we'll each have made a decision and settled on whether we both like the APEX or not. No doubt there will be bragging times for each of us, even using the same outfits. Maybe both of us will end up being our own "Terrible Trio?"
