    Since I can’t posts link here.
    Here’s is a copy of what was stated.

    Lots of respect for Tom, but I'm with Terry. New company, new detector, time span could be several years in the future if at all.


    I know Minelab has new patent for detector and it's not the Equinox so something is in works there too.

    Gotta love the kiss mentality. Keep it simple, Stupid.

    Excited to see what my money can not buy as I'm broke, but be neat to see what they run like how they look, where it advances over popularized machines of current day and age.

    Thanks for the write up.
