Any info on a Nokta Golden Sense Metal Detector?
any feedback would be appriciated

they claim to find a US quarter at 32 inches

what hath god wrought
It looks quality, not too many bells and whistles, the price seems reasonable. Two tone ID is okay. The weight seems okay. Should be a good choice for deep sand and water hunting. I would think it a bad choice for regular depth coinshooting at the old park, I would guess the Etrac is much better for that. It should be good for deep nugget hunting at 17.5 khz. I believe it actually should pick up a quarter at 32" with that big coil. I would like to get that machine in some of my freshwater hotspots, better get a bigger scoop. It seems ideal for the deeper ancient goods found in the European spectrum, and it should be a decent choice in any old war camp or battle area. Looks like Notka is trying to satisfy the mainstream detecting market with a more conventional machine. If I had a big fat wallet I would have one in the mail tomorrow.

If you are watching the KellyCo videos - it's showing 32 cm (centermeters) not inches. That is about 12" and nothing special.
The Blisstool BLOWS that depth away - well over 15". Gold rings at 22" in WET salt sand...

I have got to try it in Culpeper Va. From what I have heard about it, it looks pretty promising. If it passes my Culpeper tests in the future, you folks know (whether the manufactures like it or not) I'll be sure to give you the honest feedback. Could be a new hit! They are saying up to 40 hours on the battery too... Stay tuned

I'd be very interested in your findings.... Have never seen any reviews of someone using one in any mid Atlantic states..

Company is based in Turkey. Fairly recent to metal detector manufacture but appear to be well established in electronics. They've been marketing mainly to the European market and I actually got one of the Golden Sense after watching it in action and using it in Spain and have been putting it though its paces here in the US, the past few months. Not the detector you want to take into a park coinshooting for sure but hands down the best at relics and nugget shooting I've used so far. It appears they have sacrificed bells and whistles for straight out power and ferrous vs non-ferrous descrimination and the depth on this thing is incredible. Would love to meet up with Woodland Detectors in Culpepper Virginia for a test hunt. I go to Virginia about 3 times a year to help my parents out and would love a few hours hitting a good Civil War site. So far I have used the Golden Sense in Spain, Florida and westward to Nevada and Montana. Check out the photos from the last trip, Nevada and points northward to parts unknown in Montana. The boot puller was over 2 feet deep in a wash in Nevada. The nuggets were at about 9-10 inches and the silver colored one turned out to be platinum. Am planning on going back to Montana when the weather warms up to try my hand at recovering some more nuggets, both gold and platinum.

If anyone is within a few hundred miles of Panama City I'm up for a road trip about anytime for a day of hunting and testing.
P.S. The gold tooth cap was about 8 inches into the ground.

Hi Ganixle, Thanks for the info re the Nokta. I'm over in New Orleans, but I have access to a site in Spanish Fort, Alabama, where I've recovered many CW relics. As it's not that far from there to Panama City, perhaps we could line up a hunt. I wouldn't mind seeing the depth capabilities of the Nokta. I hunt with a White's Dfx and a Fisher CZ21. Take Care
