I sell both, so from a retail perspective, I can say the Quest is still the better seller, but only just. 

P.S. I like the song he used in the intro, Metallica!! kind of appropriate for metal detectors haha

Is that due to price? The Quest is a bit cheaper... I like the design of the Nokta, as always they are innovative.

Wow I'm surprised to see that. I've heard that air-testing pulse detectors is no't always reliable. I've also seen other comparison videos that show the pulse dive picking things up in the ground that the quest does not. People rave that the pulse dive is better. I have never used either so I can't speak from experience yet. I'd still rather have the pulse dive based on the fact that it doubles as a pin pointer as well.

It's about $40 difference, but with the 2-in-1 you get the hard case and extra probe tip so you can use it as a normal pin-pointer. I just think it's a case that the Scuba Tector has been around longer, so more know about it.

They are now basically the same price in the U.S. and a big difference for some people may be the ability to use the Nokta/Makro wireless headphones with the Pulse Dive. That and the Pulse Dive being convertible to a regular pinpointer. As far as which is the better performer I have no idea. Out of context air tests mean little to me, especially for saltwater use, so I like the first video more as it tries to at least do the tests on the beach.

      According to this thread.Link deleted since Findmall Forum update broke all old links
      I have looked at Xp's site, no update posted, still Feb 2017 version.
      This link here may be related to the why behind update.

      It may be the only thing Xp needs to do is change the date of the manual on their sites.
      I could be wrong though.

      Hi there, is it normal that on air and on the ground my nokta pulse dive can't find my 18k wedding ring???

      This little thing actually kills it!
      My cousin and I have been using the pulse dive in salt water exclusively and although it has a small coil, the ability to swing this thing like mad hugely make up for that fact!
      So far I’ve found the design/ quality of the PulseDive to be very ideal for salt water hunting.  The machine simply beeps and buzzes in your hand, is easily audible  through the water and there is practically no maintenance other than just cleaning the rubber seal/gasket every now and then but there is no knobs, cables, headphones or anything that I can see deteriorating on this detector.
      Depth is definitely surprising when digging targets but still decent in air tests with a nickel/10c Aussie coin hitting at 4” air test and depending on minerals in the sand it’ll hit deeper 5-6” even due to its non-motion nature.
      Anyone who wants to try water detecting I highly recommend trying the PulseDive, the small size and lack of headphones make it ridiculously convenient and even stealthy if you want to be discrete or are a bit shy! 
      This isn’t really a review but just a quick mention of what I think is important to know about the machine 👍
      Here is the gold we’ve found on the last few outings 👊👊👊

      I am trying to decide on my first PP. Its between a Garrett AT Pro, Minelab 35, or Pulse Dive. The primary use is probably on land with some use at the beach as well. Maybe a 70/30 split between the 2. I like the Pulse Dive bc I also scuba and having that ability is a plus. The Garrett being US based was my first choice as it appears to be the most common in use these days. Any help or advice is greatly appreciated. If it makes any difference I am using a Minelab 600.

      I just sent two of my orange Pro-Pointers in because they were falsing badly. I had taken one apart and was unable to make it work. In fact, I really messed it up to the point it was a hopeless cause. The capacitor was bad on that one, and I assume it was the same thing for the other one as well. Garrett took care of me and gave me a new outside and inside (they both look new, so I'm not sure if the guts are new or fixed. Anyway, for the repair and shipping back to me, it was $80 total. Great customer service!
