LOL Monte that is my video. The reason you don't know the settings is because I posted the information and review about the video on Detector Prospector. Simplex was in Park 2. There isn't any mode/setting on the Apex that is going to improve it enough to compare with the Simplex on separation. The problem is the Simplex wearing the 11" coil still outdoes the Apex in separation and is pretty good on depth too.

I just did another video that I will post on Detector Prospector with the NBT and Apex with iron audio off. I will admit it does do better but not enough to make it useful in a trashy spot. I run iron audio on and zero disc with most all my machines and non of them have the issues Garrett has with their iron audio. The problem with Garret is their performance in iron has always been subpar and the Apex is no different. Iron next to a good target pulls the ID so far down even a high conductor barely makes it into the iron/very low conductor range most of the time. Hopefully a 5 x 8 coil will make it better but I doubt by much. The Apex has OK depth but it still is no match for the Equinox 6" coil and I suspect the Vanquish with the 5 x 8 will probably out perform it as well.

I will admit the Apex is fun to use, looks good, feels good and has some great features. I will probably actually hang onto it just for the ergonomics alone. I have nothing against Garrett, I've owned many of their machines. But in this day and age they really need to up their game in the performance department. If they bring out a AT Apex and the only difference is waterproof, they will be disappointing a lot of people.

How about an Apex Iron Audio and Iron Volume answer?

Andrew, just to clear up the Apex and video discussion.

Should be some rusty tin down there, and I'll bring the NB.
