Topics and Posts by Brand/Company as of 12 Midnight 7/18/'19

Just an interesting look at numbers of Topics posted and individual Posts broken down by Manufacturer listed here on AHRPS. Keep in mid, too, that I started the individual Brand listing with Fisher/Teknetics --- Garrett --- Nokta-Makro --- Tesoro --- White's. Later I added Minelab, and then much more recently I added XP. Normally any long-time detector user would guess the two more popular detector makers, Garrett and White's, would command the top spots for brand use and Forum activity. That sure isn't how it looks.

Here are the percentages of Topics posted and individual Posts in order by Brand from most contributed to least as of midnight, Mountain Time where I live:

Total of 305 Topics on the listed Brands:

24.9% ... White's

19.4% ... ea. for both Nokta-Makro and Tesoro

16.1% ... XP

9.1% ... Minelab

7.9% ... Fisher & Teknetics

3.3% ... Garrett


Total of 2118 Posts on the listed Brands:

27.1% ... White's

19.6% ... XP

17.8% ... Nokta-Makro

15.3% ... Tesoro

12.5% ... Minelab

6.4% ... Fisher & Teknetics

1.4% ... Garrett


Make of it as you will, but it is interesting to me in several ways. White's is in the top spot, at this time, likely because they have been around a long time and once were very popular. But rounding out the 2nd thru 4th positions are Nokta-Makro, Tesoro and XP. Tesoro's have been very popular for 36 years, since July of '83, but both Nokta-Makro and XP are newcomers in just the last few years. At dead last, and I mean very dead, is Garrett, once one of the most popular brands world-wide.

Just some bits of info to kick around.
