Yesterday was the first time I tried my Simplex. It was OK but I was not overly impressed. I normally use my Tesoro Bandido II uMax as my go to machine. The Simplex is much noisier and it does not play well with my Garrett pinpointer. The coil on the Simplex is so large that it does not seem to be suited for trashy areas. I will continue to try it and get used to it but so far I do not see that it is any better than my beep and dig Tesoro machines. Any input?
