Recommended Posts

Ok Steve you really know something about new machines at 2017 ;) I was hear about new AT PRO 2 from Garrett but what more?

First Texas (Bounty Hunter, Fisher, Teknetics) - The Fisher CZX was targeted for 2016 but is running late, maybe late 2017 or 2018?


Garrett - New coils/versions of ATX are running late, and new machine (AT Pro 2?) announced for 2017.

Edit May 2017 - this has now happened as expected - Garrett AT Max


Minelab - From Codan 2016 Annual Report, page 9: "In response to customer demand, two new products are planned for release in FY17. A larger coil for the GPZ 7000® will give a significant depth increase over the standard coil. In addition to this, an entry-level gold detector will be released to the African market at the end of 2016. This product has been specifically designed for the African market to fill a gap in our product range, and is expected to quickly take market share from competitors."

Edit April 2017 - this has now happened as expected - Minelab Gold Monster 1000


Nokta/Makro - New selectable frequency Nokta Impact announcement due by year end and available in 2017.

Edit February 2017 - this has now happened as expected - Nokta Impact


XP - DEUS V4 and new high frequency coils announced and to be available in 2017

Edit February 2017 - this has now happened as expected - Deus V4


White's - Lots of talk this year about exciting product in pipeline but that is about it. Obvious to me anyway is that any old black metal box designs are on the chopping block with replacement models in the works leveraging the MX Sport housing.

Lots to look forward to.  I suspect the new Minelab will be Africa only - like the deus variant distributed there.

Likewise, I suspect the new Fisher machine - CZX - will be aimed squarely at Africa and gold, but apparently will emphasize ease of use and good depth in any soil, no matter the mineralization ....

we'll see when we see it.

Its very nice seeing all the latest top machines from the top players in the detecting arena and of course the very clever 'slick' marketing,but for me i will be sitting on the sideline as usual,for me i use a tried and tested 12 month time duration before i even think about buying a new machine,this i feel gives me enough time to see if any design faults or glitches start appearing,and of course in recent years we have seen a few.

Of course this is only how i make a buying decision on any new product and thus far its worked well for me,good luck for all those folks who are in the market for a new machine and may 2017 be the year you strike it lucky,if you dont strike it lucky just carry on enjoying detecting like we all do :wink:

"I'm excited about a New MInelab coin machine due out next spring?

 

Maybe they're finally introducing the GPX2600 to the African market?"

With all the new detectors coming on the market in 2017 will be more excitement than one can stand. I think I should have said more than I can buy.

I think all detectors companies have something cooking in their oven for 2017. Like a car dealer they all want your money and this may help keep the price down.

At one time here in Texas we had lots of Treasure Shows but due to the low turnout it went by the wayside. I don't know if we have less swingers out there are people are doing other things than coin hunt. You just didn't hear about nugget hunting and nothing about PI detectors. It was all coin or nothing back when.

I'm sure others have found there is life after coin and for some the color comes up gold.

Best too all on whatever trail you take !

Minelab original quote regarding its 6th Partner Conference, in Las Vegas, January 2017.

We held various training sessions, workshops and announced the introduction of several new Minelab products which will be available later in 2017! The first of this being the GOLD MONSTER 1000.

In my interpretation more than a new CPZ coil and the Monster.

Cheers, Zampano

      Things have been very quiet at Tesoro the last few years. There was a lot of talk about a new model, the Cazador, that finally just faded away. We did finally see the Tesoro Mojave introduction, and while it is a great little detector certainly not anything cutting edge. Delays are nothing new in the industry and it is certainly possible the Cazador will still appear. The lack of communication however leaves one feeling like Tesoro is just coasting along at this point. It did not help that Tesoro apparently declined to keep sponsoring the Tesoro Findmall Forum, and so it was renamed the Beep & Dig Detecting Forum. That being the case I decided when I revamped the forums recently that perhaps a new Tesoro Forum was in order for those who felt abandoned elsewhere. And so with that, welcome to the new Tesoro Forum at DetectorProspector.com!

      Is Kellyco the only Nokta dealer????? I'm trying to locate one closer to me ...California area...
    • By nugget65
      I have never had a company treat me with so much respect and lightning fast response like Nokta has...
      A lot of companies could really use a schooling from Nokta on how customer relations should be conducted...
      I was contacted this morning by Dilek @ Nokta by message from this forum ..submitted my address and phone # ... NO PROBLEM!!!!
      just made my day over something as small as a piece of plastic...
      I'm still waiting on Fisher 4 mths now for a response to my repeated emails and phone calls... SMH
      thank you Dilek for ur excellent customer relations and service...

      Saw this somewhere, a quote from Dave Johnson, currently Chief Designer at First Texas. Here's the quote.
      _____________________________
      We’re not a company who stands still. Over the last several years we have introduced a whole series of new products on several new hardware platforms, and have constantly advanced the science of target signal processing. In the future we plan to introduce new processes which, although they may “feel” like a member of the T2 process family, will operate on different principles and will produce results of a kind which are not attained by any metal detector presently available. -Dave Johnson
      Dave is dead serious.
      When he says "...will operate on different principles and will produce results of a kind which are not attained by any metal detector presently available" - i believe that he is saying that it is NOT a traditional Induction Balance or Pulse Induction plaatform, but something else.
      Can he do it? We don't know. But before we assume that this new platform will be the answer to everyones wish list, here's another quote from Dave - from March of this year.
      __________________
      "The good news is that I'm designing the perfect detector. The bad news is that almost nobody will like it."
      Now that's a quote to ponder. Hopefully it's Dave's way of saying that it will not be a detector which the average detector enthusiast will like, perhaps because it will be tightly focused on a particular "job to be done"? If that's the case, hopefully the job it is focused on doing is the job this forum is about.

      Last July (July 2014) Tim Mallory of First Texas made a post on a Facebook page. First Texas is the parent company of Fisher, the well known detector manufacturer. Fisher used to make a pulse induction diving detector, the Impulse, but it has been discontinued. Fisher stands out as a company with strong VLF prospecting detectors but also as the only "Big 5" manufacturer without a PI detector of any sort in the lineup.
      Fisher was also a leader in multi frequency detectors with the CZ series but has rested on the laurels ever since, with no digital version of the old CZ3D offered to date. It has been common knowledge for some time that Fisher has at least been working on a new PI and a new multi frequency models.
      Facebook post by Tim Mallory of Fisher (excerpts):
      Tim Mallory - I'm new to your group. I'm head of sales and marketing at first texas products, which owns fisher, teknetics, bounty hunter and two night vision companies, night owl and nivisys. We've got a lot of exciting new products coming down the pipe, starting with the f19, introducing right now, then an upgrade for the f75, in the fall, and then new super weather resistant machines on the mid to low range, in the spring.... Lots coming....
      Joe Trino - Is the water resistant machine dual feq?
      Tim Mallory - Joe, no. They are replacements for f2 and f4. They'll be a lot of machine for the money...but not multifrequency. We have a mf in the hopper and it has recently moved from research to development, but it takes a long time to innovate a new machine of this caliber.
      Joe Trino - Tim I love my cz21 I have dug a lot of gold and silver with it my only complaint would be the shaft is flimsy and could beef up the coil wires and headphones I feel confident I can keep up with any mine lab machine about time for a new fisher pi unit.
      Tim Mallory - Joe, we have 15 seasoned engineers. Still it takes 3 to 5 years to get a new platform to the intro stage. Let me just say, a PI is in the works.
      Dusty Willis - So I was wondering.... When is fisher going to get into the pulse induction business and come out with a pi machine for gold to compete with minelab?
      Tim Mallory - Dusty, it's on the bench. But still in research...arguably close to development stage...someday we will have a kick ass PI.
      I notice Fisher getting grief on some forums for "being late" with the new machines. The fact is however there has never been any hint of a production timeframe from Fisher. Units are always under development, and many never see the light of day. Anything under development can stop or go at any time for any reason. There simply is no reason to expect a new pulse induction or multi frequency machine from Fisher until they make an official announcement that a release date is near. Still, one can always hope, and I hope we see something one of these days. I would certainly welcome a lightweight affordable PI alternative to what is currently available. The CZ was always one of my favorite detectors, and a more compact lighter CZ would also be welcome.
      But I am not holding my breath!
