This is my dilemma, simplex + or vanquish 540, I would like to know the opinion of those who have tested both and their opinion is very important especially for the depth. The difference for or against I know (waterproofing, multi iq, etc. ...) what matters to me is the depth because my playgrounds arescanned and rescanned with the x-terra and even winning 5cm would change the game. I have an x-terra 705 with many disks of different sizes and frequencies, so I haven't been detecting a beginner for almost 10 years. Equinox too expensive for me

You won't personally know which is better for "you" and "your" soil conditions, unless you actually try either one for a week.
So do a buy and try like many of us. Buying used will generally see most of your money returned, if you decide a detector is not for you and resell it.


I had a Simplex+ and a Vanquish 540 . I kept the 540. The Simplex was well built but the audio and the pinpointing was not a fit for me. The Vanquish is very close to my Nox 800 on performance.
