I took the Simplex out for a walk earlier this week and other than after glow aches and pains it felt good. Good to be out in the fresh air and good to be thinking about fun things for a change. Found a few clad but refrained from digging anything over three or four inches. Temps are wicked right now and the ground didn’t want to budge.
I’m seriously worried about the coming summer months and ERCOT (Electric Reliability council of Texas). Nothing at all has changed since February 2021, and if we’re having high 90’s in May what will July and August be like?
Loud and proud tends to win out over common sense here in the Lone Star.
Had heard rumors that Garrett was about to release a new model but if the Jase Robertson signature models are it I’m disappointed.
I have a rough idea of who Mr. Robertson is but merely putting his name on two existing products and using camouflage to color them doesn’t intrigue me in the least.
Best I can tell the Robertson Apex model is exactly the same as the standard Apex (with 8.5 inch and 11 inch DD coils) but you’re paying $71 more for the camo and the label. But wait, there’s more!! You also get a free duck call w/lanyard. Yup, because they attract relics?
Same for the AT Max. Robertson signature edition retails for $941.12 and the standard $894.06, a difference of 47. (a duck call also included).
And while I’m pissing and moaning what’s with the pricing? $941.12, $894.06? What happened to rounding up or down, as in $945.00 and 895.00?
Also, Fisher. Teknetics – Hello? What’s up? YO?

So tired of seeing and reading all the BS concerning the above. Don’t let one or two individuals persuade or dissuade you from buying any detector. Just way too many variables to get caught up in this hoopla – a lot of nitpicking, trolling for “views” and a whole lot of axes to grind.
Read the reviews/specs, know what your goals are, know your locale, your bank account, then buy and go have fun. Doesn’t matter what you’re using, if you don’t walk over it you won’t find it.
