His first home-brew custom job was to his Nokta FORS CoRe which he stripped down and painted the upper and middle rods a Caterpillar Yellow. After a while he then painted them a Blue color, close to the powder coated Relic's I have. Then he took it to the powder coating business in Ontario, Oregon and, instead of him painting it, had them strip the two rods down and powder coat them a two-tone silver metallic color (I'm not sure what they call it).

I was going to paint my rods until I saw the powder coating finish, so I then used them for powder coating the 'Edge Red' and 'Edge Blue' finishes on my 2 CoRe and 3 Relic rod sets. I left the arm cups black to complement the looks of the package and blend with the black lower rods. I have done other things in years past where I mixed up rod sets from different detectors to produce a different look, but this was the first time I opted to make a long-lasting, full-time change to my detector battery.

My Nokta and Tesoro models are the detectors that have been and are working the best for me in all the different fields of application a detectorist might want to tale on, and now I can do it with a little 'personal flair' ... and maybe, just maybe ... grab a little attention and discussion about these terrific Nokta detector models.

Oregon Gregg did the same thing with his FORS CoRe, and now he's not only added a new appearance to his Makro Racer's, but enhanced their functional feel and comfort as well.

Are YOU creative with the detector(s) YOU rely on? cool smiley Maybe Gregg will post a photo of his CoRe rod set for folks to see?
