Uh Oh ! Must have been an oversight Del, That is THE detector that began the big change to Monte's detector inventory not that many years ago.

Rich, you are very correct. Less than a month makes 5 years I've been enjoying the performance of the Nokta FORS CoRe. I received my CoRe Pro Pack and extras on the afternoon of January 8th, 2015. I remember it well as the UPS driver arrived, and soon I unwrapped and unboxed the CoRe.

Because I hunt dense iron littered sites the most, I mounted the smaller DD coil that measures 4.7X5.2. Like I had done back when Tesoro went to the 8X9 Concentric, this little coil was just slightly 'Out-Of-Round' so I called it an 'OOR' coil ... and that seems to have stuck in Forum discussions and new terminology.

Within an hour or two that late afternoon and evening I checked out the CoRe and put it to the test against every detector I had on had at the time, mainly using my Nail Board Performance Test and a few other iron nail scenarios. The next day, after those many side-by-side comparisons, I headed off to some farm and country sites where I could hunt barns and out buildings that have a lot of nails and other metal debris to deal with. I also worked a section of some very bad ground with modern trash locally.

Within 24 to 48 hours, the CoRe had impressed me so well, and out-performed so many detectors with comparable coils in sample tests at hunting some dense iron contaminated sites, that I started selling off most of what I had. That doesn't mean all the other detectors were terrible, but as a whole a lot of those detectors just fell short on performance .... as they still do.

All the other detectors I am retaining in my Detector Outfit have their place and serve me well. But even with newer models I have checked out or even added to my Outfit, none of them, none, can handle all of the tough iron nail test comparisons as well as the CoRe.
