Nice, but a "couple of weeks" puts us into mid-June and time is flying by. Most folks have shopped or are shopping now for something new and trying to get the best use during the heights of a typical detecting season.According to a NJ blog site, Dilek from Nokta Makro is supposed to be on their show in a couple of weeks and should make a more definitive announcement at that time. Hoping it happens.
Monte, I don't disagree with what you are saying. All I was trying to do was provide information which may "or may not" answer some of the questions about intro of the new machine for those that asked and are interested. I am not affiliated with N-M nor do I have one of their machines. Like others I am waiting impatiently for any positive news when it comes to introduction of a Nox competitor or any info about its abilities. I posted about my dismay with N-M's year+ delay in introducing the SMF machine and the affect it may ultimately have on consumer sales a month or two ago.Nice, but a "couple of weeks" puts us into mid-June and time is flying by.

Have a feeling you may get your wish. Makro may use a 8 or 9" as the basic coil for the SMF. I would like a 6' optional coil also available from the get go. They have been working on this machine for a long while so the 6" could be a done deal also. Just my 2 cents. Hopefully we will know all the answers in a few weeks.Please consider a 8 “or 9”coil for us serious coin hunters !!!! 6” is too small , 11” is too big !!!! This is the very reason I don’t have a Nox is coil limitations !!
In the water hunting is conducive to smaller coils more so than wide open beach areas are. For a while now I've felt a 9 inch coil with a fairly thin side profile was a good compromise at the beach to do both in the water and sand sweeping.Ya, I hope the standard coil is NOT an 8 or 9 inch coil. Beach hunting is not conducive to small coils. SMF shines on beaches and hunting with that small of a coil would be frustrating.
