#1→→ Evaluation Scores w/Detectors and Coils ... plus the 100% performer.

November 01, 2020 09:38AM avatar
Here you go, a really quick list of the various detectors and coils I evaluated, including the 10 Brand New Models you can buy, and some of the older or discontinued detectors I use, some 'seminar-use' detectors, and those OregonGregg stopped by to test. Enjoy!

I highlighted the 10 New Models using different coils in Blue. Remember, there '42' points possible and I listed results in descending order based on their score.

42 Points:
Compass Electronics Yukon Coin Hustler TR w/6" DD coil (A simple, straight TR w/o Discrimination. More to follow.)

'41' Points:
Tesoro Silver Sabre µMAX (microMAX) w/6" Concentric coil (Note: This detector is in my Daily-Use Team.)

'39' Points:
Tesoro Bandido II µMAX w/6" Concentric coil (Note: This detector is in my Special-Use Team.)
Nokta / Makro Simplex + w/5X9½ DD coil (Note: This detector is in my Daily-Use Team.)
Makro Racer 2 w/5" DD Coil (Note: This detector is in my Daily-Use Team.

'38' Points:
Fisher F5 w/7" Concentric coil

'37' Points:
Garrett Apex w/6X11 DD coil (Note: This detector is in my Daily-Use Team.)
Nokta FORS CoRe w/'OOR' 4.7X5.2 DD coil (Note: This detector is in my Special-Use Team.)
Nokta FORS Relic w/5" DD coil (Note: This detector is in my Special-Use Team.)

'35' Points:

Teknetics T2+ w/5" DD coil
White's M6 w/4X6½ DD coil

'33' Points:
Fisher F5 w/10" Concentric elliptical coil
Teknetics T2+ w/11" BiAxial coil

'32' Points:
Nokta / Makro Midi Hoard w/7" Concentric coil (fixed)

'25' Points:

'19' Points:

I will follow up later on the 3rd, #2→→, with personal comments about every model evaluated.

Follow-Up #3→→ will have interesting information on Ground Balance comparisons for all of these models. That also gets interesting to know when trying to compare what posters state their GB setting was for wherever they are and whatever it is they are using .... both detector and coil.

And #4→→ will explain the '42' Point performer as shown above. It is the "entry-level" model I have in my Seminar-Use older detectors, to help show attendees what we used to have, how they had to be operated, what they were capable of doing .... and what we have gained, or lost, to get to where we are today.
