AFTER MARKET SEARCHCOILS….ARE THEY REALLY BETTER?
Being the ‘Johnny-come-lately’ that I am, I just recently became aware of all the heightened interest in ‘after market’ searchcoils….most of them made overseas. My question? Are they actually better than what the manufacturer offers or are they just “hotter” (as in chatty and overly sensitive) or better because at such a high price they have to be? After perusing forums, websites and blogs it seems the jury is still out.
I know that when I worked for a major manufacturer years ago we made and sold searchcoils to a retailer so that he could put his label on them and promote them as “deeper” when in fact they were basically the same coil that we sold as stock (I am pretty certain as well the other detector manufacturers were doing the same thing). I guess you could call it Marketing 101 or the power of positive thinking (which incidentally I firmly believe in).
Anyway I would love to hear from those of you who purchased any of these after market coils, about your experiences and whether or not you’ve found them to be as advertised. Thanks…
2012…A GREAT YEAR FOR THE PAS
Have been chatting with the man who runs the Malamute Saloon about Stout Standards and we’ve decided that we will continue to do what it is we do, and that those who find our comments old, boring, depressing, trivial, insulting and of no significance, have absolutely no appreciation for intellect, brilliance, genius, good taste nor insulting and crude humor. You lose. We are who we are… c’est la vie!

Well no one has gone to jail yet, but the Indians are starting to circle the wagons. Be careful what you throw out there…..
AND YOU WONDER WHY….
