  1. Someone could have at least bought the brand and kept it going. Look at Fisher,,,,,,,,hardly any of the originals are still in production. Maybe the gold bug 2 and the CZ21.......CZ3d if it is still around. But the rest had a "Face Lift" of sorts and were completely new models while the 1225 and 1236 types first TX let them die off.
  2. What coil are you using?? Ok so the 3 tone is supposed to be faster in trash,,,,,,,,,but with an 11" coil shouldn't it still hit a dime at 7" without issue? especially without having to crank the gain up above 90 for correct ID? See that is the part that was a little disappointing upon first test with this set up with the 11 inch coil and 3 tone which is what I normally would have searched in under normal conditions.
  3. It is a shame. Sounds like they are trying to sell off everything to pay off something or get out of debt who knows. It would have been way better if they sold their company to a competitor instead of just jumping ship.
  4. I agree with the above and that is how I came to my conclusions. I would have never have known the 3 tone delima if I did not have a test garden.
  5. I have not used the snowshoe style stock coil much.......I put the 9.5x5 coil on for the past couple of outings. X5 So I am gonna just avoid 3 tone myself probably from now on for areas that had potential deep good targets. However for normal park hunting and around old houses and all I am sure 3 tone is good I have noticed that above 90 on sensitivity it does tend to do something to the circuit that allows for better ID on deeper coins. But this other stuff about 3 tone and 89 sensitivity being able to pick stuff out better as far as I am concerned is just a total waste
  6. Received my AF28 coil in and put it on my kruzer. I started out in 3 tone because that is what I would have normally ran anyway but, that was before I tried it out. No more 3 tone for me. I have the Fe tone set at 2 and sensitivity set to 85 and in the standard 15khz freq for starters. Separation is very good with this machine with set up of the settings with this coil. I am very satisfied with it. It has about the same ability to separate as the smaller 9.5x5 DD coil. Very impressed. But moving on with the 11 inch coil, I discovered a quirk when running the coil o
  7. well it does not look like they are going anywhere anytime soon. They just posted on their face book page the new Andy Sabish Nokta Simplex hot to book. Which I think is a little extreme but what do I know. I do not necessarily think it would be a problem with Nokta as a company whole but maybe the one who is over the repair center here. Some times electronics act weird on one machine and work perfect on another.
  8. What has nokta done recently....I am not clear on the matter with your disappointment in them.
  9. Well there is a thing as bad coils. I have one coming this saturday but it would be a couple of days before I could give you any test results on performance. I am very please with the Kruzer so far. I saw on youtube a fellow say that the 11 anfibio coil put on the Kruzer was a deeper combo than the anfibio with the 11 coil on it. Has anyone heard this? I no longer have an anfibio. The anfibio is a great unit but the shaft is just way too heavy. I love the weight of the kruzer and it has enough settings to keep me happy. I have the 9.5x5 elliptical on th
  10. Interesting....I have not saw anything like that. I do know that the covid b.s. has caused a lot of stuff being imported in to the country is taking longer due to that. What was the coil doing that was so bad??
  11. I appreciate all of the tips and advice but this machine is just way too slow. And people out there think a Deus is hard to set up.....those same folks need to get one of these. I took another 2 hours yesterday changing settings and adjusting settings and going over targets next to trash trying to pick out good targets next to iron. I am afraid the processor is just way too slow for the task. In hunt relics this time of year and the ability to pick out a button or bullet next to a piece of iron is very important. It will hardly bleep on a wheat penny next to iron as well.
  12. It looks like you know the V3i inside and out. I like how the mixed mode acts but I am going to have to tweak a lot of settings on it. Yes I have a pretty good test garden. That is what lead me to start asking questions on the V3i here on the forum. I could not get the V3i to hit a copper coin about 1-1/2" inches from a piece of iron in the ground with the D2 coil and the 6x10DD coil. But it will hit the coin next to iron with the 13" DD ultimate coil without much parameter adjusting. I wanted it to be as fast on recovery speed as the MXT is however I do not think it will be pos
  13. What I have noticed is the programming throughout the different programs are different internally. It does not seem to carry the same parameters across the board. There are many more choices in mixed mode pro to adjust than in coin mode. I found that out today. So it looks like the ultimate find everything mode is mixed mode pro I think it is called.
