ever had a great machine you just flat did not like?

First of all the SimplEx is a phenomenal machine i know. innovative state of the art good technology.

The SimplEx is beating me up.

ok operator i know.. i just cant get the hang of it.

i always manage to hit the wrong control pad bumper and really just dont find much with it. I know its me. i just dont seem to work it right. to me... the name SimplEx is misleading. its really simple, I Know, but different from other machines to me. i can really have a ball with my AT Pro, Eldorado, Troy X-2 . the At Pro has a set up routine i really like. the SimplEx seems to get out of mode a lot on me, out of settings. trying to remember what to hit on the controls to change something, increase or decrease, i get it all out of whack. i always hit the wrong one and here we go.

the machine is just not me.... i have the basic no headphones stock coil. i prefer my own phones big coils dont intimidate me. i am just NOT adjusting to using this machine.

trying not to give up but would rather have a basic Fisher f series Whites or old Tesoro, Eurotek, something at this point. it just aint me. and i may get left in the dust, but it just aint me .... my hat off to Notka.. its just not a user friendly machine to me personally but i would recommend the machine to anyone.. sound strange? maybe, but its the old Ford Chevy Dodge--vanilla chocolate strawberry pepsi coke argument. this is not my flavor brand or preference.

May the last hole i dig be my own, and will a fellow detectorist cover me up. And you can have the pulltab!

Yes indeed, but first I tried to make sure it was the detector.
