Picking and choosing, and a need for some extra $$$.

November 29, 2020 09:55PM avatar
Honestly, I have come very close to ordering a Quest Pro and / or Q40. I only wonder how different it might perform compared with the 13 kHz Teknetics T2. If it's too much of a copy, then it wouldn't give me anything different in performance. However, if the Q40 works better than T2 series with a 5" DD, then I would wonder how it might compare against the FORS CoRe or FORS Relic. If it can match what the CoRe or Relic can do in a dense iron nail contaminated site with a 5" DD coil, it might just find a permanent home.

As for a 5" DD coil,I have a lot of trust in the NEL product like, and I wonder how the Russian-made MGC 5" coil would do? They both do the right things of putting the rod-mount ears at or very close to center. I wish detector manufacturers would get away from positioning the rod-mount closer to the back edge of a coil. I noted the CORS 5" DD for the Quest has the rod-mount toward the rear. Nokta / Makro 5" on my Relic is toward the rear as is the Racer II's. That can cause coil flop or being easily bumped out of position whereas a center-mount position is best.

Thanks for the inks.
