Look how the Chinese are spamming and trolling Minelab. News

Hybrid spam and hybrid trolling. It’s when they take a hot topic and turn it into the desired direction. For instance, a treasure hunter made a super find with Minelab’s machine. Then immediately appears a comment kinda “but if he had used coil N, he would have picked up a total of two, or even three, such coins”. This hybrid technology is universal and can be applied to any topic. Let’s say, Minelab released the new detectors with revolutionary technology. “Can it be true that this novelty will be better than detector X?”, could be a comment. Or, supposing DiCaprio’s wife left him. “This loser was told to replace his old machine with a new X one a long time ago – just do it and as good as new will be your wife’s love for you…” The only thing that matters is the topic to be as hot as possible.

Can you believe in the Minelab X-Terra 250, Garrett ACE 305, or Garrett ACE 705 devices? It’s not the done thing among large metal detector manufacturers to ‘borrow’ digits from the already existing model. And it’s only the Chinese who can afford it, with their MD 6150, MD 6250, MD 6350, MD 6300, MD 6400 (the latter two are just expected to come forward).

Quest Metal Detectors, the manufacturer who leaves ‘large Chinese footprints’ behind, has rolled out two new products – the Quest Q20 and Quest Q40 metal detectors. As a matter of fact, Minelab has already released the models, Go-Find 20 and Go-Find 40, with such digits.

Besides, Minelab is going to reveal its new machines to the world on September 16, 2017. The event, Detectival 2017, will occur in the UK. They are promising sensation and super new technologies that can change the metal detecting world. Does it sound interesting? Of course it does! The topic is hot, very hot.

Minelab announces sensation! NEW 2017

And what a coincidence… A week after Minelab’s announcement, Quest Metal Detectors announces its participation in Detectival 2017, too – furthermore they, too, will reveal their new products.

Quest Metal Detectors’ history isn’t good enough as it is. Previous brand Deteknix was sued in the USA for jacking technology, due to this, it has been recently rebranded. In 2015 they passed a coil from another manufacturer off as their own new product (under the brand Deteknix) at a metal detecting show. And to add insult to injury, Minelab is within their reach… Or don’t you agree? Do Quest Metal Detectors have the right to position themselves alongside Minelab?

  • The statement that “Quest Metal Detectors’ history isn’t good enough as it is. Previous brand Deteknix was sued in the USA for jacking technology, due to this, it has been recently rebranded” is not correct. The suit was based on the similarity of the name Teknetics and Deteknix which is why they agreed to change their name to reflect the detectors that were already in production. There was no issue of using First Texas technology in the suit which your article states as factual.

      To all Fisher and Teknetics Sales Agents, First Texas Products has dismissed its lawsuit against Deteknix after the two companies entered into a Confidential Settlement Agreement

      Deteknix acknowledges that FTP owns the T2 software and agrees to the validity and enforceability of First Texas copyrights in its software code.

      Deteknix has agreed not to infringe any First Texas copyrighted software code in current and future products.

      Deteknix will take reasonable steps to ensure that their agents, servants, officers, directors, employees, successors, and attorneys do not violate the terms of our agreement.

      This is great news that we were able to come to such terms. And, after a quick perusal of the Deteknix website it appears they have abandoned the Deteknix name brand.

      In light of this, we will soon be rewriting our distributor agreement. This agreement will take a dim view of counterfeit reselling, and include strong deterrents against infringers. We ask that each of you look closely at your product offering and make sure that you are not selling any company’s products that infringe the copyrights of any metal detector manufacturer.

      Best Regards,
