Nokta New Relic Detector

Recommended Posts

On MD-Blog it shows a shadow of a detector that looks like the Nokta fors gold. It's being called Nokta fors relic for 2016.

The Nokta and Makro detectors  are coming out of nowhere. You just say what you need and they will make it for you. That detector don't come out as a after thought but as a top notch machine.

Nokta as I get older I need one with a digging arm.Haha

The Best Nokta

I am finding this guy likes to "enhance the facts" especially in the photo department. He picked up on my post about the new GPZ coil and then felt free to post a picture of it at http://md-hunter.com/minelab-20-gpz-coil-new-2016/#comment-24592

The problem is that the coil prototype was not shown at the show, so he just found a show picture somewhere and faked it up so he could pretend to have nabbed a picture of it.

Similarly the FORS outline is just that - something he tossed in that may have no connection to reality.

He gets the general idea right though when it comes to rumors on new machines so maybe new Nokta based on Racer 2 circuit? All I am saying is do not pay much attention to shadows and outlines as being anything more than something to illustrate the posts.

Makro/Nokta are turning out some really great machines, no doubt about that. My main concern however at this time about Makro/Nokta is quality control. In the rush to get as many new machines to market as quickly as possible loose edges are showing in the form of defective product. There was the breaking bolt issue and breaking coil ear issue, and I hear about machines being dead on arrival more than I would like. I know you had that control handle issue yourself Chuck.

Now all new detectors by all manufacturers suffer from this to one degree or another, especially on new models, and Makro/Nokta have been superb at following up and making things right eventually for the concerned customers. But it is an issue they need to stamp out quickly because it feeds into the concerns people always have with new names, especially if from overseas.

People should never forget that any GOOD dealer should be happy to test and verify a detector works well before shipping it. If the say they can't or won't, find a new dealer. I understand the appeal of new in box and being first person to take it out of the box, but that honestly can be shooting yourself in the foot. It is a service you are paying for when you buy from a stocking dealer.

Good "been dere done dat" advice from a guy who has probably sold more detectors than I have eaten pizzas ( and I worked at Shakeys for a year while I was in college)!

A young new detector company that comes to the US to get American dollars don't need anything negative. The trouble with negative it will hang in the air longer than whatever positive can be said about their product.

Yes I did have trouble with my Nokta fors gold plus out of the box and the problem was in the control box. The service from Nokta was outstanding and they didn't stop until it was corrected.

The Best to Makro and Nokta

Got a question. How many iron numbers are on the adjustable tone break, is it 10, 40 or something else.

Conductive ground mode is new.  Is it more than just being able to balance to salt?

Thanks

Tom

Obviously Nokta picked up on the 19 khz FORS Gold Plus getting great reviews from relic hunters. Now we have a 19 kHz machine aimed directly at the relic hunter, as opposed to 15 kHz on the FORS CoRe.

The iron range on the Nokta FORS Relic is 0-20 ferrous and 21-99 as non ferrous so a change from previous FORS models, which are 0-40 ferrous. Conductive Ground mode is same as on FORS CoRe - a saltwater or alkali flat mode.

Nokta FORS Relic Search Modes

General Search (GEN) Also referred to as the ''All Metal'' mode, this is the deepest mode of the device. In this mode, the device detects all targets and provides a single target tone with no discrimination.

Discrimination 2 (DI2) It is the 2-tone discrimination mode. It provides good results especially in clean fields without much trash.

Discrimination (DI3) This is the 3-tone discrimination mode designed for coin hunting.

Deep Mode (DEP) Recommended especially for relic hunting, this mode is the deepest among discrimination modes and requires a slower sweep speed.

Swift Mode (SWT) It is the 2-tone discrimination mode designed for trashy areas. It is recommended especially for coin hunting. It offers slightly less depth but faster target detection and recovery speed in trashy sites.

Conductive Ground (COG) This is the special mode of FORS Relic developed for conductive ground (wet beach sand, alkali soils etc.) In this mode, the device will not respond to ferrous targets and it will ground balance easily on all types of ground.

      How to get the overload off comes on at start up and doesn't go away.

      Hello,
      It is good friday unless you had to go to the dentist like me. My appointment wasn't till early afternoon,  so I had a couple hours to go walking up a canyon near the old channel workings. I seen pocket gold geology as soon as I made it up the canyon a short ways. there is areas out there where the old timers found a few pockets and once in a while you can still find a pocket. but apparently they didnt know I was coming with my detector 140 years later because they took all the good ones. I did find some scraps they forgot. 6 pieces in 3 small areas. 2.8 dwt before my dentist appointment. luckily at the dentist everything was good.  I took along the Fors plus as my bird dog to sniff out those golden birds. Fors plus did a good job and really does well in that kinda geology.  Happy Easter

      Hello
      Well it looked like there was a small window of opportunity to get outside today and get on some gold. Headed back to previous detecting site for some swingin. Moved down range 50 yards from last time to see what was there. Hit a good patch of small stuff that was mostly stuck in bedrock left behind by our historic miners. Only bad thing is I think they had a trap shoot there at one time. I never found so many birdshot bb's in such a small area. Only lasted a few hours then it started clouding up and started to sprinkle. It was fun while it lasted. Once again Fors plus operated great in all metal with "dd" coil. Have to not forget concentric for a try next time. Can't wait till next time. 23 pcs. For 2.5 dwt. Nothing big but the color is nice
      Good luck
      I have a few videos that I will post a link for here shortly

      After a very busy summer and fall, I had a chance to get out for a couple hours between the rain showers. Went to an old spot that I havent been to in awhile. We hit the place pretty hard before, but fors gold always finds a little more just a little deeper. Found 7 more for 2 dwts. Going to be switching to a new detector this season. So it was fun detecting with Fors Gold one last time. It was a good year and a half with the Fors. But it will have to be the backup now.
      Hopefully it rains alot more. The ground is still as hard as concrete.

      Took my Nokta to an old creek.... Well I gave the machine a few swings along the bank and found 1 piece so I put the coil in the 6" deep water and sweeped the ground ...not one target ...hit another spot in the water about 5ft away and the machine went nuts... The water was about a ft deep so I pulled out my trusty Keene A52 ...my shovel and classifier and got busy... The pic shows my results 2.8 dwt in an hr and a half...I will be back at that spot over the weekend...for a full day....

      Hello,.
      Just got back from my mini vacation to Tahoe. Had 1 day left before work again and it wasn't too hot. Only in 90's. So figured better get out before our coming heat wave. Went to my cousins property, where we have found some nice gold in the past. And there is no hobos and garbage for once. Just bears. Manzanita berries are ripe and the bears come down to lay around and fill up. I can deal with bears. We have detected there in the past with our gb pros and have grided the place pretty well. But I wanted to try Fors Gold on this ground. And my partner wanted to try her gpx with camo coiltek coil. The ground is one of the worst mineralization around here. It is a contact zone with 3 bedrock types. Most the gold was created in clay seams and is shallow. The old timers had dug shallow seams and some very deep pocket concentrations up to about 15 feet aswell. The biggest gold we found in the past was 1.7 oz with gb pros. So I set my Fors up in boost mode 85 sens for start. Was able to find a nice 1.4 dwt piece of gold right off. Where we allready detected with past detectors. Then another smaller one after another 1/2 hour. Then after a few more deeper leads found a good target mixed in with iron junk. Ended up getting another 1.1 dwt piece and a small one out of same hole. Both dwt pieces were at the 7" mark. All together ended with 2.8 dwt.
      Fors gold did very well finding more targets
      In previously detected ground. My partner did very well with her gpx also finding 6 more pieces.
      Good luck!
