My feelings about the Relic & CoRe.

You just can't beat that Fors Relic (with 5" coil mounted) in the iron Monte(IMO)!-----------Del
That's what I was saying about the FORS CoRe when I got it in my hands 4 years ago, then the Relic 3 years ago, and the more detectors I evaluate as the years go by, for performance in various tough iron challenged conditions, I haven't found any make or model to do what the Relic can do. And the CoRe is a very, very close 2nd but the Relic gets the 'edge' in contaminated ferrous debris due to:

• It's 19 kHz frequency
• The Iron Audio Volume Control
• The expanded non-ferrous VDI range

I've been praising the Relic ever since I got the prototype in hand and started working with it, and that was before Dilek asked Keith Southern & I what we thought about a new name for release ... the FORS Relic. ... Keiththumbs up and Montethumbs up

I keep telling folks who enjoy nail and other ferrous littered relic type sites that they really need a Relic w/5" DD to best tackle the conditions, and I have two specific Nail-based tough challenges I use in evaluations to compare other makes and models against the Relic as well as the CoRe. Even yesterday, on one of those challenging test, there was only one detector I have or that I borrowed to try, that could give me 4-out-of-4 hits like the Relic & CoRe. I'm going to give it the tougher settings to match in about an hour and I'll be surprised if it can keep up. As it is, the audio response in 2-Tone isn't as clean and clear as the Relic & CoRe.

This past year I have kept a watch for very clean 'as-new' Relics to come available and I snap them up to have on-hand to sell serious shoppers ..... and they don't hang around very long! Matter-of-fact, I have another I recently nabbed that is a 3-coil package and is in excellent condition. It has the standard 7X11 DD and 5" DD, plus it also has an unused FR26, the 5½X10 DD coil. I was going to list it today in the Buy / Sell / Trade but a fellow hasn't contacted me. He's trying to get the OK from his better (more stubborn ?) half regarding finances. If I don't hear from him today I'll add it to my ad tomorrow.

While I know there is no 'perfect' detector and I enjoy my other models for various applications, especially urban Coin Hunting, the Relic & CoRe are my two 'Must Have' detectors when things get serious afield.

Todd, I think your Relic coil choice is perfect.

Some obvious signs about manufacturing metal detectors.
