Gregg, you wouldn't look half so old if you'd brush that sagebrush powder out of your hair! eye rolling smiley

As for Monte and his recoil problems with those so called high HP detectors, I hear they sell recoil pads at the sporting goods store. If that doesn't do it, perhaps if he used a larger, heavier coil out on the end of that thing he wouldn't get so much lift when he went over a good target. winking smiley

Just some thoughts that occurred to me as I was sittin here ponderin going 'tectin.




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.
