It's good to hear you're still working with the CoRe.

Well I had another short outing with the CoRe at a school site & hunted with the 7” round Mars DD coil, Di 3 mode, Sens @ 70.

Thanks for the coil and settings information. I always enjoy knowing more details like that. Interesting because I have been using the FORS CoRe since January of 2015 and never had had a need to reduce the Sensitivity below '85' in the Di-3 Three-Tone mode. Always at my saved turn-on setting of '99', but twice I did need to back it down to '90' in a troubling EMI area were I lived before my move to Texas.

No particularly good digs came to light but happily I enjoyed much quieter audio, only chatty while digging with coil pointed away from ground.

Now I have to do some more testing to see if the quiet hunt was location or coil changethinking

It could have been a combination of both the detector/settings as well as the coil change. How does that 7" Mars coil balance and feel after a bit of hunt-time?

A pleasant couple of hours and another $8+ in change, getting a bit better handle on the machine’s language and I believe it’s a keeper.
Now to find a littered site in an old park or school and give the legendary OOR coil a whirl.

For me, the CoRe and Relic are definite 'keepers', and if you get into a challenging location, I think you'll enjoy that little 'OOR' DD coil. That's all I use on my FORS CoRe.

Anyone know a source for lower rods that are compatible with the FORS machines???

The Nokta FORS series and the Makro Racer and Racer 2 models all share the same lower and middle rods. I know I have at least one extra lower rod but I'll do some checking this evening when I get in my Accessory Coil Tote. I might have a couple of them, or maybe even three as I now recall. I sorted rods just a couple of weeks ago and know I have some, just how many I'll have to verify.
