Just a 'personal opinion' warning to all contenders:

February 29, 2020 08:12AM avatar
Any make ... Any model ... Any price ... Newer or Older design ... Flashy colors or drab ... Multiple-controls or simple ... Multi-Frequency or just one single frequency ... Well balanced or awkward ... it doesn't really matter.

Just mount a smaller-size comparable search coil to an 'OOR' DD or 5" DD and come out hunting and try to duplicate or better the performance of a Nokta FORS CoRe at 15 kHz or FORS Relic at 19 kHz and you'll find it to be very difficult. Take on the challenge of working the Nail Board with both an Indian Head Cent and a silver Half-Dime and, odds are, you're going to fall short on performance.

Are they 'perfect?' No.

Are they deadly in some really challenging Nail and Iron environments? Absolutely, and that's why they are my two primary-use Relic Hunting devices.

Just wanted to share that because I keep getting e-mails asking why I like them so much. They work, and they work well.
