It seems such a long time ago we heard that Nokta would be releasing the entry level detector to beat all entry level detectors! Actually it was only Nov 2018 so really not that long ago but, you know how it is when you are waiting to get your hands on a new machine. Time seems to drag but…the wait is almost over. Apparently the Nokta Simplex will go on sale in the UK at the end of August although of course that date is not set in stone and UK pricing for the Simplex Plus has been confirmed at a very reasonable £299.00 (£399 with wireless headphones).
So a quick recap on what all the fuss is about:
Nokta Simplex Plus Features:
- IP68 Waterproof up to 3m/10ft.
- Wireless Audio Ready.
- Built In Rechargeable Lipo Battery.
- Lightweight (1.3kg / 2.9lbs)
- Iron volume.
- Notch Discrimination.
- Dedicated Beach Mode.
- Frequency Shift.
- Backlit Keypad / LCD & LED Flashlight.
- Online Firmware Updates.
- Retractable Shaft.
- DD Search Coil 28cm / 11″
That is certainly a lot of spec for just £299.00. The Nokta Simplex Plus is the first and as far as I am aware only entry level detector ever to be completely waterproof and fully submersible.
I can easily see these will be out of stock almost as soon as they arrive in stores and if I were the manufacturer of certain other popular entry level detectors right now I would be seriously thinking about upping my game. Nokta have laid down the gauntlet. Who will rise to the challenge?
