If it’s equal, then it’s better due to price and features. If it’s better, wow that will be a step in a positive direction for all detectorists. Pushing manufacturers to provide more for less. If it’s bottom of the list…. I’d like to think that nokta wouldn’t allow that, seeing as they really are customer driven, and that would seriously hurt the reputation that they are building.
But who knows?

I’m expecting the ferrous meter to operate similar to the iron probability meter that’s on the Orx. My expectation is the performance will not exceed the Equinox, but overall it will be a better machine, so a net plus. This is bc of the much improved build quality, and added features like ferrous meter and others. My only wish , well two would have been mid size coil option and s-shaft to aid balance. On my now sold equinox I modded it to have an s-shaft and it was for sure a nicer swing.
The s-shaft is not modern and outdated if you look at all the new detectors that came out the last 3 years but i really like this old shaft. My MultKruzer with s-shaft is much better in balance and swinging then my Simplex or Nox with modern shaft.

Dilek from Nokta Makro just released a press statement on youtube that the warranty on the Legend will be 3 years instead of 2 years.

I disagree. The machine offers more than the Equinox 800, at the price of the Equinox 600. Waterproof; Vibration; underwater light; Two-Simultaneous Multi frequency settings; Five - Single freq settings; I think it will blow the Minelab Equinox out of the water. :skullflag::skullflag::skullflag::skullflag:

PS - I'm expecting mine around December 12-15.
Be interested to see a head to head test in the field with two experienced users on the same targets in the wild with the Nox and the Legend.
I wouldn't bet on either.

I am waiting for some reviews. Call me skeptical, but heard the same thing about the APEX, although the Apex was presented as a lower scale detector. Time will tell.

Time will tell but untill now i never had a Nokta Makro detector that was bad. I did a hard test drive with maybe 15 different detectors the last 4 years and sold 11 from them after testing. 2 of them i kept were from Nokta Makro.

I had a fors for gold for about 2 years. I hated it.
1st it was only 20khz and would not find the small stuff that the GM1000,deus,orx or whites24k will find.
2nd it had a tiny screen @ the handle, and if you needed to make adjustments, you had to flip the detector on its side to turn knobs.
it was a pain in the keister to use.

I'll wait for reviews also before making the plunge.

Not in the market for another IB machine but Nokta makes some well built high performing machines. Swung a Gold Racer for a bit and not parting with my Multi Kruzer. Doubt people will be disappointed.

Can it due all this? I waited a year before getting the Knox, it actually was the deepest detector I ever used. Now that I’ve had it for years it goes even deeper than I ever expected. When the Simplex came out it was also hyped as just as good as the Knox for half the price. Now they claim it’s as good as the Knox or better cheaper. From what I’ve seen it only runs 2 multi frequencies at thr same time. Only 6 tones, love the 50 tones. No definite release date yet. All I can say is prove everything they claim

I don't think that Nokta Makro would be so bold as to lead with their 'chin' if the new Legend detector was just a 'me too' machine. The stakes are high. Just my .02, we shall see.

The Legend has tone options of 1, 2, 6, and 60.

It also has user adjustable tone volume, user adjustable tone breaks, user adjustable tone frequency (pitch of the tone). The Legend also has vibration.

Whites DFX, Notka Makro Simplex. Folks the price don’t mean everything, the question is are you willing to put in the time to learn the machine, experience will pay off I guarantee it.

That Multi Kruzer is a beast for con shooting. Locks so good on coins. I always take 2 detectors on my hunts but my Deus or Equinox 800 stays almost everytime in my car. I get better results with my Multi Kruzer.

Hard to miss any targets in 3 tone with the MK. Much of my hunting is either Gen Mode or 3 tone unless I am in some really heavy trashy areas where I use 4 tone. On the 4 tone I use notch audio on low, blocked out almost the entire range leaving only known target types including all coins from large cents, flying eagles, trimes etc etc. as well as common gold rings. This works incredibly well in old camping areas that have a ton of can slag from fire pits and very trashy parks. I don't think most Kruzer and Amphibio users really use notch audio.

I've had good results, ... only 2 hick-cups in over a year
My Simplex came with a PulseDive - and it "paired" fine, just that I couldn't physically use the probe..., so I'm using my trusty Nokta Pointer easily enough.
