I must be getting old.



But so am I and that's why I keep a few simple to operate, yet high-performance/h.p. machines ( Core, Relic & Racers) I just never seen an advantage to having a machine that has 1623 separate adjustments....................

Back in very early 2015 Monte just received the Fors CoRe and he called me. ( this was back when he was still in Arlington) So I loaded the dogs up one early morning and made the drive over to see this new machine.

So Monte set up a few tests to give the CoRe a try. It certainly met one of his criteria.....simple to operate/set up and it provided performance. But even then I don't think he was ready for the raw performance/h.p. that this machine could crank out.

In picture #1 he was getting to run thru a test on the Nail Board.

Even after 5 decades of detecting he wasn't prepared for the raw power of the CoRe. I told him to go easy and start slow, but he cranked'r up to almost full power ( 95 on the gain) with that much power emminating outta the machine, he was quite unprepared for the re-coil that followed when he swept over that highly conductive coin ( see Picture #2) I thought for a second the machine was gonna get away from him.

Since that time, I was sold and there has been a Nokta and Makro machine in my arsenal ever since cool smiley

I just like sticking to the "Keep It Simple" method.
