We are still waiting for something new in the detector market from FTP

and what do we get? A new search coil.sad smiley

Minelab is doing well selling their over-promoted Equinox models. XP has two Selectable-Frequency units that sell in the USA, and they are doing well, and there is talk about them bringing out s Simultaneous Multi-Frequency (SMF) model in the near future. A lot of folks have been holding their breath, and savings, for aa new SMF from Nokta / Makro, but it appears there is a delay in its release. Garrett, the oldest detector maker who hasn't closed or been bought out brought out a really nice, mid-priced SMF last year, and they also acquired White's 'smarts' when they went under and have now released the former White's Gold Nugget Hunting model, the Goldmaster 24K.

When they introduced their SMF Apex, it was soon followed by the 'Ripper' and 'Raider' search coils, and now they added an even bigger coil, the 'Reaper' ... and the new coils were not only for the new Apex model.

And what do we get from FTP? A new coil for their long-time product line.

Oh well, it makes me wonder when they will come out with some serious detector model designs and product line changes?

Videos of FTP's 12DD coil, and brief comments on the new AQ.

What size type of coil Monte? N/T

True, but being 'waterproof' isn't such a bad thing.
