That's a very well done review sir!

I have been using the MultiKruzer for a few months now, and am thoroughly impressed with the platform.  With the depth it'll detect lead BB pellets,shotgun pellets, 22 bullets and shell casings I'm sure the 61khz platform will be a great prospecting and jewelry machine.

I tried to focus on differences between the Gold Racer and Gold Kruzer pointing out features unique to the Gold Kruzer, plus mentioning possible concerns like coil ears, which were an issue in the past. If I forget some key thing, just ask. Except for any "take an hour and go test this for me" stuff - I am up to my eyebrows in alligators right now.

To reiterate, here are the package contents so far as what actually comes in the box with the Gold Kruzer for the current internet price in the U.S. of $749

Pretty much everything you need. Key accessory items to consider would be the waterproof port to 1/4" adapter for anyone wanting to plug standard headphones into the Gold Kruzer. There is the external AA battery pack for "just in case" or off grid use. The waterproof headphones for those wanting to stick the detector underwater, and the one accessory coil available at this time (5" x 9.5" DD).

And finally, if you need spare parts, here is the current list of available parts....

Thanks for the review Steve. The Makro Gold Kruzer appears to be a VERY well thought out design.

I want to highlight that Makro made a big decision in deciding to go with a concentric coil as a stock coil instead of the DD, although the smaller included coil is a DD design. This goes against the recent trend to DD coils and indicates that Makro understands that concentric coils have advantages when it comes to discerning ferrous from non-ferrous targets. Concentric coils also tend to have simplified responses on small shallow targets which also aids when working with very small surface targets.

I still have an early optional concentric coil for my Gold Racer (DD was stock on the Gold Racer). The early coils had issues with coil ears breaking and so I want to try and show here just how much beefier these new coil ears are. My old coil has an off white plastic that makes it obvious in the photo - the new Kruzer coils are closer to pure white. Also, as noted in the review, 1/4 inch has been shaved from the coil thickness, so the new coil is 0.75 inch thick where the old one was 1.0 inch thick. Due to the extra coil ear plastic etc. the coil did not lose a lot of weight, but is a few grams lighter at 384 grams new versus 390 grams for the older coil.

Good points - helps understand why the Gold Bug 2 only has concentrics.

Its a pity that the Gold mode here wasn't added to the Multi Kruzer. That would have saved having 2 machines and given us all an all rounder . It would have been like an Equinox without simultaneous Multi frequency .

As soon as i get my adaptor for my Gray Ghosts i will find a nice beach to test my M K .

There's a Rally at the end of August , along with my Nox i will take the Kruzer too .

      I was just wondering why someone would choose a detector with only 3 selectable frequencies over a machine that has more than 3 selectable frequencies and can operate in multi frequency?

      I’ve been watching one video after another on the MMK and hearing lots of chatter emitting from it. Well tonight I found a video that a guy covered this problem that shows up when in 4 tones . He showed if you switch to 3 tones the problem goes away but said you lose depth.
      I was thinking about giving the MMK a try but just that alone I say no.
      I would like to hear from people on here that’s been around the block more than one time with it.

      Folks.
      I have plenty of hours on MMK now, but have a beach vacation coming up shortly.  For those of you who have put time in on the salt water wet sand and shallow water, can you give settings with experiences?  freq, mode(if not beach) etc.

      I’m sure it was location as much as machine, never less the MMK helped shorten the old bucketlist in the last month.  The walker wasn’t very deep but the V nickel was a good 8-9” and still a clean ID of 29-30.  Land or water I am really loving this machine!
