FORS CoRe, preferred settings, ...

Listed below. Note the 'simplicity' of the CoRe. Other hand the common shared settings for Volume, Brightness, Vibrate, Depth Measurement and Language the Disc. Modes let you ajust Sensitivity and Disc. Rejection Point. ... Then you just get busy searching which is what you set out to do. smiling smiley

... tips, tricks.

TIPS? Just the routine encouragement to:

** Use the best coil you have for the site environment and challenge.

** Don't get radical with adjustment settings.

** Use as much Sensitivity as you can while remaining stable.

** Use the least amount of Discrimination you can tolerate.

** Work the search coil parallel with the ground and try to maintain a +/- 2" coil height from the ground.

** Work the search coil in a slow and methodical sweep presentatio and remember to overlap.

** Don't ignore recovering those questionable target hits.

TRICKS? Again a routine encouragement to try and find new and potentially good sites to hunt.

I have, and still do, used my Nokia FORS devices for some of my urban Coin & Jewelry Hunting, but I have not used the standard 7X11 DD coil since back in 2015 and early '16. Most of my search time is spent working densely littered old sites, or in-town places that have very ample modern trash. Therefore, all I use are smaller-size search coils, or a mid-size coil in modestly littered places.

Learning a new detector means you need to also remain very patient and rest assured the FORS CoRe is a very capable detector.


What search coils do you have? Out of curiosity, which make & model detector are you going to mainly be comparing it to?
