Will Nokta get a pi detector this year? The first news I had that nokta would release a new pi detector was on this forum 2 years ago? This week I saw a similar story on a Russian website. Is there any new news that that will happen this year? I am interested in buying from Whites TDI sl after having sold mine 3 years ago so I don't know whether to wait, maybe several years or buy a TDI.

No news.  In fact, Nokta is not really teasing much of anything but accessories these days (scoops, shovels, Simplex coils).  The PI talk has all but dried up and they are being very vague on even a simultaneous multi frequency machine.  No timelines on that multi whatsoever and are only saying it will likely come out in the Simplex housing form factor. 

I would not hold your breath on the PI.  We don't even know whether it would be a targeted-use PI like the Fisher Impulse or general purpose,  waterproof or not, etc.  Plus, this would be Nokta's first PI, so it will likely need further refinements.

I’ve been known to be wrong but I can’t remember when that was!

 A while back it was said by Dilek that the company was expanding in a different field other than making metal detectors. They may have found out it’s more money in the other field that making detectors and we just became step children. Meaning what had been their first priority has just been put on the back burner.

 Dilek if I’m wrong I’ll apologize ahead before you give me a tongue 👅 trashing.. I do want you to know I’ve been saving my pennies to buy that detector whatever it is . Plus my 98 year old mother this past week had been saving change in a piggy bank for me . She made me take it so now I have it to. So please hurry with that detector because money has a bad habit of burning a hole in my pocket.

 The Best To You Dilek!

Can you even find a new TDI of any variety?  (There's a used Pro on Ebay....  That model seems to be the one the purists prefer.  I think RNB makes lithium batteries for it.)

In the USA (with service centers) your choice for a new land based (meaning with ground balance circuitry) PI seems to be down to the heavyweight Garrett ATX and the Minelabs (soon-to-be-released GPX6000, SDC2300, and price-reduced GPX5000).

IMO, if you want/need a PI now, might as well get one.  Used is always an option in my book.  Life is too short to sit around and hope....

Technically speaking Nokta/Makro has produced a PI detector already in the PulseDive.

Yes they have Steve and I have one but due to a sick wife I haven’t got no further than my bathtub with it.


PS They call it your golden years but it’s nothing golden about it.

En los EE. UU. (Con centros de servicio), su elección para un nuevo PI basado en tierra (es decir, con circuitos de balance de tierra) parece depender del peso pesado Garrett ATX y Minelabs (GPX6000, SDC2300 y precio que se lanzarán próximamente) GPX5000 reducido).

En mi opinión, si desea / necesita un PI ahora, también podría obtener uno. Usado es siempre una opción en mi libro. La vida es demasiado corta para sentarse y esperar ...

Yes, it makes no sense to wait for news that does not arrive, the presentation, the launch to the market, delays, several more years may pass.

We must continue to stimulate the economy, there is no other option.

Hello all! OK first off, as Steve said, we have already produced our first PI machine with the PulseDive. 

We are working on other PI machines - for gold prospecting and beach/underwater hunting. These will NOT be released this year though. 

Please understand that engineering, development and manufacturing is not as easy as it sounds (I have learned that myself after joining this company which has changed my whole view as a consumer). In addition, our priority of projects/products change based on market demand as we are a very consumer focused company. 

Btw, our other business HAS NO affect on our projects and/or timelines for our detector business. Detectors is our core business and will stay like that. Quall (our other company) has their own engineering team and they are not even sharing the same building with us.

Hope this helps.... love you all!

      A "new", easier to operate, gold probability scale 61 kHz nugget prospecting detector using the Anfibio platform from Nokta Makro. I did not see this coming......

      So, I really like the Makro Gold Racer. I keep finding more things about it. Recently, I found a really tiny 14k gold chain visually, just lying on the ground.  I had my compadre and it couldnt pick it up. I took the chain home and tried it on my GR. I had the factory settings, 10 on disc, using Disc 2 the deeper one, and tone break at 30. Nothing, I couldn't get it to detect it.
      So, while I was waving this chain in front of the 10" DD coil I started lowering the disc, I realized the ID number was about 3. So, I experimented with going one number at a time all the way to 0. At 1 I could get a somewhat clear signal. At zero it was a nice signal. Even the big coil coild pick it up at about an inch.
      I have been trying to find micro jewelery with no luck. Maybe this is why. I have not used the disc mode in all metal. You see, I really like the clear signal the disc modes give. I have a hard time "reading" the all metal mode. I can really hear the signals in the disc modes. Why is the all metal mode so hard to understand? So very faint target sounds compared to the really obvious ones in disc.
      So, am I searching in all metal when disc is at 0? It sure seems as deep and sensitive as all metal. I get much more audible info than all metal in my opinion. However, I have to state here, I'm not an expert. I know the all metal has a way of indicating a target with thresh hold sounds too, or, the silence of the thresh hold sometimes on tiny targets. But, it's not as easy as this method. I really could hear this tiny chain this way.
      Can I hunt just as effectively like this or should I keep trying to learn the all metal mode? What's your opinions? And, please, lets keep this discussion to the Gold racer and those who have one. 
      I'm actually really glad to have discovered this. I'm fortunate to have this chain to test.

      The ground is mild. 
      I buried a 14k gold ring 3.77 grams at 15", 14" then 13".
      Equinox 800 w/ 11" coil got a nice hit at 14" with coil raised 2". Neither would hit it at 15". Used multi tone Park 2 & Gold 1. Equinox would hit the ring in the single frequencies also. 40 khz was nice. Settings. sensitivity 24, 2 tone, recovery 4, iron bias f2 0.
      Anfibio Multi w/ Mars Discovery 13" would hit the ring at 13". 14" no hit. Setting, 20 khz, Sensitivity 92, Deep mode, 4 tone and 2 tone. Disc 6, tone break 0, isat 0.
      Anfibio w/ Nel Superfly 11x12 would barely hit the 13" ring. 14" no hit.
      I was surprised the Anfibio didn't go as deep as the Equinox on the gold ring.
      So with my test the Equinox is the best gold jewelry hunter over the Anfibio for my lakes by 1"+. Not a great difference.
      I will be hunting this summer in the lakes with the Equinox and the Anfibio will be my backup.
      I would like to know how the Tarsacci would do in this test with both coils. Would it be able to hit a gold ring similar size as the one I used in mild sand at 14"? I hope someone does this test and lets me know.
      A gold ring at 14" in a sandy beach is a tough test for any detector. For the Equinox to pass this test is impressive.

      Curious if it handles the salt at all being such a high frequency.

      Found a rare undetected park this weekend (I'm assuming). It was started in the late 20's. The first day,Saturday was 36 degrees and windy. My buddy  with the nox 800, found around $5.00 in clad and a 37 merc. and a 1940 WL 1/2 dollar. I hit nothing but clad about $4.00. Sunday was way colder, but a way better day for finds. My buddy again hit up on 3 merc's and a small silver ring. I redeemed myself by finding a 1918 merc a 1959 rosevelt and a 1964 Kennedy 1/2. I also found a lone buffie, (my first one in years), game galaxy token, $3.50 in clad and what I believe to be an Oldsmobile key ring ? Not sure of the era on this, but it has a serial # on the back. Seems to be made from brass. Very cool find I think. We stopped digging penny's within the first hour, this place was filthy with them. I'm looking forward to some more good finds here soon, because we only hunted an acre out of about 30.
