A perfect CoRe? Your thoughts?

December 06, 2020 01:11PM avatar
The lack of Iron Audio Volume on the Fors Core is the only thing holding it back from getting a "its perfect" certification sticker sad smiley but other than that on the machines I have that offer Iron Audio volume ( and machines that don't) I still set them up the same way I was taught.

I set them up to just barely accept iron nails and listen to it all. That way it gives the machine the best chance to unmask a coin out in all that junk. Turn the iron volume down low, but just enough to just hear it so you have an idea of how much iron etc you are dealing with. But that is with a machine that does " Iron Audio Volume " correctly.

A Perfect CoRe? There's a lot more work than JUST iron audio.

No iron Audio
No adjustable tones or break points
Target ID scale needs better spread
Wider arm cuff for use wearing a coat
No wireless headphones
Settings awkward to adjust due to control housing arrangement. Put the electronics in an Apex or Vanquish housing
Factory price point too high - Pro pack was close to a $1000
Coils are colored black rather than easy to see white.

Runs forever on 4 - AA batteries. Now that's perfect. thumbs up

All that said, the CoRe in the original package is a unique and VERY capable detector out in the ghost towns. It is oftentimes the uniqueness of our equipment that adds character to our detecting.

Oh, I left out 1 other failing, it isn't water resistant (not talking dunking in the shallow water, just the rain). eye popping smiley


It's YOU that makes the difference -

My first metal detector with iron audio is a White's MX5 and it is at a preset level if you wish to hear it all in 2 tone Coin mode.
