New From Germany - DRS Ground Exper

Recommended Posts

Anybody seen the latest in metal detectors from DRS Electronics, their new  Ground expert machine is just  awesome. If it can do what they claim it can it might be a real game changer for metal detecting.

OKM in Germany makes something similar may even be the same company with a different name. I have never heard anything good about these units.

If this is anything more than snake oil I would be real surprised.

I'm not going to be the guy to drop $6500 to find out it ain't so!

Iv'e seen these pop up used on E-bay and sell for only $700-800...my guess is that it's mostly a gimmick.

My advice is not specific to this brand but to all metal detectors. Beware any device that claims to detect more than a few feet or discern one metal from another. There will always be a catch.

I watched the vid.... interesting but there was some serious lag when he passed the targets over the loop...

I own one and if you are looking to hunt for gold nuggets smaller than a 1/3 oz. hold off getting this just yet. I'm testing this machine and still in process. I'll be doing an entire gold video on this in the next week or  so. My thought is that you'll want to hunt for 1oz and larger with this machine.

      It looks like the F19 - what I evaluate very positively ... Is there any closer information? Link to the leak.

      For the small people in your life!  One of the few detectors I have seen that is designed for kids without being an insult to kids intelligence. And waterproof - amazing!

      I've been out of commission for the last couple of months with a broken ankle. While I was laid up, I did a couple of mods to a couple of Explorer's I bought last month. I stole the idea from Kevin(IDX Monster), thanks again!  I finally healed up enough to hobble down by a lake near my house and do some digging. I ran it with gain set at 7...16 manual sens...variability set at 10...conductive tone...fast recovery....no disc..... manual noise cancel at 1...Minelab 8" coil.
        One thing I did find out real quick was how fast it is to get out of shape. Anyway, set out to dig it all and relearn the Explorer and test out the equipment. I've running the Nox 800 for the last 2 years. The chestmount setup works like a charm with no hiccups to speak of. I'm running wireless earbuds that are APTX LL and the transmitter is also APTX LL, no noticeable lag. The battery is mounted on the back of the housing and is a 12v 3000 mah power bank. I tested it and it ran for about 15 hours with the back light on, full threshold, full sensitivity, in the garage with 11"coil mounted.
      I'm very pleased with how smooth the set-up works and was able to dig a couple of keepers while testing it out. The finds are from 2 outings, I found a silver ring and a silver bead the first time out and 2 more of the silver beads and another silver ring , along with the other items today. I'm thinking the silver beads were part of a bracelet or necklace as they were spread out from where I found the first one. One of them rang at 2/30 the first one 5/28, I was surprised at how hard the Explorer hit such small items. Feels good to be swinging a coil again, gonna take the monster old coin hunting tomorrow.

      I recently ran across one of these fisher gold strike gold detectors not sure of the history of these other than fisher didnt makem for long whatever there reasons were it seems to perform very good depth and sensitivity wise, my buddy and I tested against his gold bug 2 and they seem very similar, it is a pain to adjust but it is what it is I have one and wondering if anyone knew if fisher made a coil other than the little 6" it came with that's avail or if any of the other model coils are compatible I'm trying to find a bigger coil for it. Thanx
