Tom, I'm waiting to see which coils are coming to do a side-by-side comparison.

A 5X9½ DD is one I will compare on a Simplex + against both my CoRe and Relic what that same size coil. I am really hoping for a 5" DD for the Simplex + to take on the very iron-littered places I like to visit.

I don't have another 11" coil equipped Nokta / Makro unit on-hand, but I did compare my Simplex + w/11" DD against an Equinox 800 w/11" DD coil in a few locations using a single frequency to challenge the Simplex + at 12 kHz. I worked the EQ-800 w/6" DD in a couple of ghost towns against the other models in my Outfit, and then parted with the EQ-800. What I have matched or bettered the performance of the Equinox, and in Multi-IQ that included their own Vanquish 540 w/5X8 DD.

When they get their mid-size 5X9½ and round 8½" DD coils out I'll do some more comparisons, but I really want to have 5" DD for the Simplex +. No, it might not rival the performance we get from a CoRe w/'OOR' or Relic w/5" DD, but from the performance I get out of the Simplex + I have no doubt that it will challenge a lot of the offerings from competitor's models with a smaller coil in dense rash.

It is difficult to compare a lot of detectors out there against others because they work 'differently' from what many brands used to offer. For example, I hope to put as 5X9½ DD on a Simplex + and I have no doubt that it will provide very good performance for general-purpose hunting. But there's no way it will do what my XP ORX will do with the 5X9½ DD HF coil, especially in my 6 User Coin program for hunting in very iron contaminated conditions. That has out-performed all other makes and models with a comparable-size coil. Easily out-performs them in a ferrous challenge test.

I guess that's one reason why some of us enjoy keeping a few detectors we really like in our Regular-Use Detector Outfit to be able to pick-and-choose what we feel might best handle different site conditions.
