I just hope they pay attention to search Coil design.

Make sure the search coils are rugged and even pay attention to appearance ugly coils are just that. Ugly. The most important thing is to position the Rod Mount ears close to center and not have them way back towards the rear.

My small 'OOR' and 5" DD coils for the CoRe and Relic I love with, but they should have had the 'ears' closer to center. They made two accessory coils for the Simplex + and the elliptical 5X9.5 is great, but that round 8" is heavy and uncomfortable with the 'ears' too far towards the rear.

They did fine with their round 11" coils so if the new unit comes with an 11" and a 6" optional with 'ears' in the proper location then they'll balance well and enhance the comfortable feel.

I also hope the balance isn't messed up with whatever design they're going to use for a user replaceable battery.

Using the Simplex physical package design is fine and I also trust they'll use push buttons that are a little easier to push than there first Simplex models.

And finally, we need to have an SMF that will handle the really tough iron conditions like their other good-working devices do. Then we'll have a much more competitive model on the market.
