    Would the Nokta fors handle pickers?

    Still in the market for a good all around land machine, something that can handle relic hunting, coin shooting, and even picker hunting. If such a beast exist? I'm only going to have room for one land machine and a few coils so I need to to get the most bang for my buck. Already got the Excal and various coils for all of my water hunting.

    Here's a link to the machine in question:

    I have been seeing some really awesome results from people with the FORS machine.
    The Garrett ATX Extreme is another machine to consider.

    I have the fors core brother fors gold and it is a great subgrain gold detector. I never ran a core. But i see alot of people that hunt coin and relics in england, europe and back east. That say the core is awesome. I have velox one also and it is a great combo detector. And a great gold finder as well.

    Don't mean to sound like a broken record Bigscoop, but, the Minelab Xterra 705 is a proven performer in ALL the areas you mention, including a dedicated prospecting mode. The ability to change frequencies (3khz, 7.5khz, and 18.75khz) with the change of a coil, makes it a formidable detector at a large variety of tasks.
    The 3khz coils will give you the best detection for silver, copper, coins, etc., with good depth, while the 18.75khz coils will work best for smaller gold. The 7.5khz is a general detecting frequency many of the single freq. detectors use. It has a good selection of coils in both concentric and DD configurations. You really can effectively target most anything with it.
    I see Minelab currently has some promotions going on, and you can probably get a pretty good deal. Give Bart a call at Big Boys Hobbies, if nothing else, he can give you some good information.

    Thanks guys, whittling down the list of possibilities. The 705 is still on the list, for sure. Just checking out and then checking off as many as I can. May end up even going with two machines but I really want to avoid that if I can. Highly mineralized ground and hot rocks are my biggest concern because I just don't know where all I'll be hunting next year. Colorado for sure, Arizona and Nevada are looking very likely right now. California isn't out of the question. Just want to have a machine/coils that can handle most it when I get there, wherever that might be.

    I believe Californiagold says his Fors Gold handles highly mineralized ground very well. Let him chime in...

    Fors gold will handle highly mineralized soil very well. Where i hunt the soil and rocks are the worst around. Can't even think about using any detector in all metal mode. I use boost mode on fors with sensitivity at 85. My velox handles it well too. Either one will snipe gold right out of the mineralization.

    I'm thinking I'm going to have to have a specialty machine in the arsenal at some point.

    If looking for small gold in hot nasty ground I would skip right over the VLF and go to a mid range PI( SDC, ATX or TDI SL) True some gold VLFs run a bit better then others in that stuff but not by much, you still have ground balance constantly and reduce the gain/sensitivity big time no matter what VLF. If I were working those conditions you describe, I would first hit it with my TDI SL / 7.5" mono coil then mop the area over again with the Gold Bug Pro to see what it could do, but thats just me.

    Look at other post of Cal Golds on Notka Fors gold as you'll see the proof that crazy thang works and finds gold that even GB Pro won't find as side by side comparisons made already in numerous conditions. The thang is indeed interesting as Hungary is the EU hotspot for techie advances. Government,EU, spend many 100s a millions there creating a techie industry. John

    I'm leaning that way if I opt for a dedicated machine, which I think is probably likely and well advised. I may just end up getting 2 Notka machines before it's over with, one for general land use and one dedicated machine.

    Not to discredit Californiagold but I would like to see the Nokta Fors Gold tested and reviewed by a handful of testers and get an unbiased review. Even the Nokta forums the only person that has given much on posting of the Nokta Fors Gold is Californisgold and the staff of Nokta. The Youtube videos do nothing to sway me in purchasing the MD and most are in foreign tongue. I have yet to read any reviews by whom I hold to a higher standard to test and review a Nokta MD.

    Nokta is now a supporter of the Treasure Net Forums so its without question they read these forums. Nokta, I and others would like to see the Nokta Fors Gold placed in the hands of Steve Herschbach, Chris Gholson, Steve Gholson, Rob Allison, Ray Mills to give an unbiased review of the Nokta Fors Gold. Let's see the ultimate tests and reviews.
