    New Metal Detector Design Requirement Wish List

    Around October - November time line I will be seriously looking at several BRAND NEW designs for a new detector that I will design and bring to market. I am looking for any input as to requirements, a wish list. Please only reasonable requests / ideas if you don't mind. I am doing this for YOU as my prospecting parameters are already met bar a few bells and whistles in the new designs. There will be at least 2 -3 designs based on similar technology but I want to make the main design with YOUR input in mind.

    You can see my post about patent concerns here Enough with the single frequency vlf machines. although this is just a reply to another member and does not go into great detail concerning my understanding of patents and the ability to work around same.

    As long as your wish is reasonable then no request will be considered stupid. All requests will be documented and considered.

    Fire at will.....

    We already have some pretty good models available to us right now. Rather than list all the features I would like to see, I'll mention a detector already built and what I would do to improve it. How about a waterproof Deus XP with multiple frequencies that can handle salt water? Or maybe an Equinox with expanded target I.D. numbers and the ferrous/conduct system like the CTX/Etrac and a better EMI rejection system. Maybe a PI detector with true target I.D. and iron discrimination ala the proposed Aquamanta? All detectors should be light weight, and have several coil and headphone options.

    I expect XP is already working on their saltwater capabilities.

    Lightweight, WATERPROOF for real, narrow loop to get between corn rows.

    I can’t wait to see what XP comes up with for their next high end machine!

    BTW, I misspoke. I was out of action most of the summer due to surgery. The 5.20 upgrade has fixed the salt water detecting issues. It now does salt water very nicely! I hadn't been able to try it until about a week ago.
