Delivery Update: A new XP ORX is hoped to arrive by Friday the 31st.

May 28, 2019 08:21PM avatar
I'll e-mail Dilek at Nokta / Makro this evening and try to get a guestimate of when the Simplex will be released and, hopefully an idea of which Accessory Coils will be available for it. I was told yesterday that rumor was the Simplex will be dependent on it's own set of coils and it won't be compatible with those for the Kruzer or Anfibio shared coils. That was the more recent rumor so I hope to get some confirmation of the coils to shop from for the Simplex.

As I stated in my original post, I wasn't on the evaluation team for this model so I set enough aside to purchase one, and I'm hoping I can snag one before I head off for the WTHO in Nevada. The Simplex is an "entry-level waterproof detector" and my travel route will let be get some saltwater hunting time in for a day or two, then the Outing will let me test this new device in known sites than have low, moderate, and extremely dense areas of iron contamination.

Naturally I plan to have a few of my other detectors along to put-to-the-test, especially my very tried-and-proven Nokta FORS Relic for the ugliest challenges, and Nokta FORS CoRe for any 'average' trash contaminated places. We're cutting it close because I need to head out for the Outing by about the 8th or 9th. It will be a good start to get a good feel for any newer product on the market, and if the XP ORX arrives on the 31st or even the 1st (this Friday or Saturday) that will let me get a little 'familiarization time' in with the unit before serious in-the-field evaluation time with a unit unfamiliar to me.

If any readers have acquired a new ORX or plan to get the coming-soon Simplex, I would welcome any comments you have, including programs or settings and type of sites you hunt. Just e-mail them to me at monte@ahrps.org and, in the meantime, I wish everyone the best of success with any detector they grab and put to work.
