    Nokta simplex

    Does anyone know how good these work ? I had a Tesoro Cibola I used for years and found a lot with it but it recently has crashed on me was thinking about the simplex but I wasn’t sure if it was about the same as the Cibola ?

    Great question! I have swung the Cibola and others for a long time. The cibola was hard to beat for response speed, love the super accurate pinpoint, depth was great, run for days on one nine volt battery. And the fact it is super light! The Cibola was always my go to detector for hunting civil war related farm fields for bullets and coins.
    Then along came the Simplex. How it can sniff out a nice button with 5 rusted square nails in the same hole is beyond me. It has done so many times. Depth is great, tones and numbers are good.
    My only complaint is how hard the pinpoint button is to push and keep depressed while pinpointing. After using the Cibola, this will be a big change. But the pinpoint button is in the same spot! The simplex does weigh more. But the simplex is waterproof and comes with wireless headphones.
    For the money, the simplex is great. But if you need another Cibola instead. Send me a PM.

    Hope this helps!

    Thanks yes I’m waiting on my Cibola to get back from mail I had it stopped from being sent back to the factory for repair. Do you know what would cause the chattering ? I may attempt to fix it by myself befor I pay for the simplex lol. I just put a new coil on it and it didn’t fix the problem

    I bough a Simplex + and had the opportunity to try it out today. It's a great machine for the money. Fast recovery, good depth and multiple tones.The only issue I had was the pinpoint function. The button is hard to push with gloves on and I missed a lot because I'm not used to it. Also, If you use the Nokta pinpointer with it you will get interference. You can't leave the poinpointer on and swing. Wasn't an issue for me because I turn off my pinpointer anyway.

    On the pinpoint issue, that rubber button is hard to press and keep pressed while pinpointing.

    My solution has been working well for me. I had a partial sheet of round, hard felt cushions/bumpers like you would put on a cabinet door to keep it from banging. This one happens to be an off white, it is about 1/8 inch thick, and a little over 3/8 inch diameter with a self adhesive backing. I cleaned the rubber button, the put on the peel and stick felt bumper. Makes pinpointing much easier. Has been on for about 26 actual hunting hours in the last 8 days. Still stuck in place good.
