Sodbuster, you asked: "when hunting in grass." I take it you mean Coin Hunting.

Monte, how do you rate the Impact in relation to your other go-to detectors when hunting in grass, either in parks with trash, or on private yards and lawns?

That's the impression I get from your inquiry, more of a Coin & Jewelry Hunter's approach for the Impact, and that's a lot of what I sort the Impact out for in my personal detector group. EVERY make and model in my Regular-Use Detector Team has proven their abilities to me for ALL metal detecting applications I normally take on, the two most desirous being Relic Hunting then Coin & Jewelry Hunting.

To be very honest, even though it is tough to pick-and-choose from the favorites I keep read-to-go, of all my Target ID / Tone ID detectors, I'll usually grab a quick-and-simple Tesoro, such as the Mojave or Silver Sabre microMAX for quick-hit tot-lot hunting. But for working groomed parks, schools, and private yards, my Impact will usually be the 1st unit I grab at a Coin Hunting site.

Like I said, any of my detectors can do just fine, but I do tend to favor the Impact because it offers ample yet functional adjustment features, the benefit of three operating frequencies, and it is well balanced and keeps my favorite search coil mounted for ready use.

Yes, as of today I consider my Nokta Impact to be my currant Coin & Relic Hunting favorite detector, and I believe it is a versatile detector that can do the same service for any avid detectorist who sets out to learn and use their own Impact. Naturally, we need to also match the search coil used for the particular sites challenges, and they offer a nice array of accessory search coils.
