Actually, when weather allows us to get out again, Gregg is going ...

... to spend a little hunt time with one of my ORX devices. He stopped by the other day and I had a line-up of units in my living room and some test samples when he came to check out the Nokta / Makro Simplex +. I used a few interesting model comparisons and he had the chance to feel how light the ORX is with the 5X9½ HF coil and the performance sweeping over some of the samples.

Now, he may not be convinced it is a 'must-have' model for his detector inventory .... but at least he's interested in checking one out afield to see what it might do. You never know???

Also, when it gets huntable again to go back to Lone Tree, Lonesome Arch, Lost or Switchback ... or maybe even just Rippville, we are going to each use our modified IDX Pro's w/6½" coils and have a little duplicate model hunting fun. I had mine out for some comparisons when he visited and for those who think older models can't match some of the newer stuff ... well, thy haven't used some good older models.

Back to the XP offerings. I know I really like the ORX, especially with the 5X9½ HF coil for my wants and needs, and I think it might be something that, over time, Gregg could come to like for some sites. But Gregg mainly hunts only those old, iron littered sites, and any detector he tries is going up against a CoRe and Relic which are very proven and tough competition for any rival.

Gregg does NOT need any XP Juice. He's a faster learner than most people I have known who get into this great sport. However, it might not hurt to serve up a swig of Patience Juice. It works better than a brand-flavored beverage.winking smiley

Maybe, but don't cut those other two too short.
