  1. So, the great news is Nokta are working on a Pulse Induction Gold prospecting detector, it was delayed a bit due to other projects, I can only assume the Legend but it's back in development now and to be honest I'm quite excited about it. The market has long needed a good quality low cost relatively high performance PI option. While I don't expect them to match the performance of the GPX 6000 or GPZ 7000 that's not overly necessary, they're likely going to put their detector in a very competitive price bracket to enable a larger number of people to take up prospecting with a PI detector. I would not be surprised if the performance exceeds my expectations though, Nokta never ceases to amaze people with the products they come out with for the price they sell them. I figured it's time to start a thread on it so Nokta can get a bit of feedback from various detector prospectors as to what they'd want in a new PI detector. I'll kick it off with something that I would like, for me I would love the detector to support existing GPX coils, not GPX 6000 coils obviously, the earlier GPX coils. People have a bunch of these things, manufacturers have started long running businesses solely around making coils for the GPX series of Detectors, there are literally hundreds of coils available for the GPX detectors, this would give the Nokta machine a big head start and a also attract a lot of buyers to it knowing they can use their existing coils. There are a range of coils available for the GPX to suit just about any environment with DD, Mono, Concentric, Anti Interferance and so on, a coil for every occasion in every size you can imagine. It would just really make sense for Nokta to take advantage of that if at all possible. Other detectors are running GPX coils fine so technically and legally it's not a problem, it is more so if there detector is designed to suit them. They could even do what Fisher were intending to do and do a Land (gold) and Sea (beach) version of the detector to get more out of their R&D. I could go on for ages on the features I would want it to have and I'll do that in time if others don't chime in with the same requests. So, what would you want in the new Nokta Makro PI Gold machine?
  3. As a recent owner of a Pulse Dive I can see one issue with it that I'd like corrected, it's basically just hand held even though it has great coil options, it is good enough to be used as an underwater detector in replacement for full featured detectors, it really is but the one thing it's lacking is a longer shaft which would make it even suitable for land use as a standard detector. Nokta's R&D department (Research and Duplicate) has been great with the Legend, a perfect Nox Knock 🙂 off, some even say it's better and maybe it is, so perhaps that same R&D department should get a bit of payback and duplicate a really great idea that's come from the Chinese metal detector manufacturers. I would absolutely love this shaft for my Pulse Dive.... Please consider something like it, it would be a great addition to an already good underwater detector. If the vibration is strong enough it should resonate right up the shaft.
  4. Hi, I have a broken 8pin cable from the handle motherboard to the coil for the Nokta Invenio detector. Can anyone help me with the cable diagram please? Tx
  5. Over the summer I had snagged the 5x9.5 dd coil and been using the MK for my high trash and smaller target hunting. I had used it water hunting at 19khz and noticed it would start overloading then would quiet down. At first I thought it was something large under the sand and thought not much about it. Later I put my 12" super fly on for a beach hunt and the performance was horrible, less than half the depth it usually does but the beach I was hunting is loaded with hot rocks and black sand. I did notice some fogging behind the display. Later when I got home I opened it up, dried it out, resealed the gasket and noticed the rubber boot on the control box where the headphones/charger cable connect wasn't very tight so I resealed that. Couple days ago did some more water hunting and the machine started to overload again. When I got home I tried a factory reset and no matter what coil I put on the machine overlaods in all modes except beach mode and 5khz. Reinstalled the last update but that doesn't fix it. Has anyone else run into this? Is the machine toast? Emailed Nokta but haven't heard back.
  6. Just got a email from Nokta/Makro telling about two new detectors for kids that is waterproof. One is the Mini Hoard for 99.95 and the Midi Hoard for 119.95. For the money and being waterproof too has got to be another great buy like the Simplex. Chuck
  7. So it has been a year now since the Gold Finder 2000 by Nokta has come out. The advertising on the box talks it up pretty well and the price point is within most other VLF gold detectors. What I find interesting is the lack of success posts, photos and or stories. There is a pretty good Promo on it right now, but maybe that's because sales of said unti are not doing well? Also, this detector could be region related. As with the GM-1000, it was never intended for the US, but we wanted "turn on and go". Maybe it's just a matter of someone asking to see pics of your GF-2000 success so please let us know. Yes I am a dealer of said product, but I also have my favorites and already know them. With limited time it's tough to get my hands on all the new detectors coming out and giving them real hands on. In times past some of the manufactures and their hype was just that...hype. Anyone want to shed some light on your experiences (good and bad) of this detector. Thanks in advance.
  8. Curious if anyone has the standard or the pro? I have the standard. Just figured out how to use it after practicing a lot with it.
  9. I'm new to the hobby so go gentle with me in other words dumb it down for me. My question is to ignore iron targets what are the best settings to use. I'm currently using 3 tone gain at 88 Disc. 3 notch 4 Fe Vol N2 tone break 4-70 tone 50-70 isat-1 Freq. 14
  10. I have 10k white gold earring that many detector will not hit. The Gold Kruzer hits it great in micro mode with disc 0 and tone break 22. The 5x9.5 coil hits it good. The 4x7.5 hits it even better. My Xp Orx w/ 9" hf coil the earring has to be touching the coil to get a hit. I tried my T2se with Nel Sharpshooter and it couldn't hit the earring.
  11. I am test driving a Deus I . I had been enjoying the Full Tone audio in a couple of different scenarios but It wound up on the Detector Unable to Participate (DUP) list over the weekend. So I broke out the Anfibio with the KR 19 sniper coil and hit up the sites that had been planned for the Deus 9” and decided to give Anfibio 99 Tone a crack at them. I am glad I did. At my last site I applied notching and subsequent notch volume to make for a successful authentically dynamic coin program, easily dialed up on the fly. At this site I was searching for coins in plenty of small iron and moderate to heavy trash with a tone volume of 4 and notch volume of 1. Discriminating 1-10, notching 11 to 65 and 97-99, using 5 khz everything else stock. It easily located coins, even with the small coil I reached down into 1969 twice. The 9” concentric is next batter up at this site, with this set up. I have to admit prior to this I had not given 99 Tone a thorough opportunity to show me what it could do I have a new appreciation for the machines capabilities, and dynamic full tone audio is a great corner to occupy in my opinion.
  12. A couple of Deus 2/Multi Kruzer comparison videos in English on Swiss hillside pasture. Very fair comparisons by an experienced Multi Kruzer user. Both videos are fairly long but are live relic/coin digs with tones and target ID numbers.
  13. 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...... https://www.noktadetectors.com/metal-detector/gold-finder-2000/
  14. Hello guys and girls. I am a pretty new detectorist. I have bought the nokta makro multi kruzer and it's working really well so far I think. In comparison to my old bounty hunter 2200 haha. I have been detecting at my in laws 1880s property and have pulled out a ton of stuff. 3 large cents Canadian. 1896 being the oldest. A 1800s pewter tea cup, the outer housing of a golf gilted pocket watch. A whole bunch of knights of the maccabees medallions. The only thing is I've been getting silver tones of 98. A solid 98 , I'll dig down and it's a large piece of rust iron? It this just because the target is so big that I'm getting the 98. I get so excited thinking its pre 1950 silver haha I'm just getting used to the vdi. Does anyone know what aluminium and zinc/galvanized would show up as? Just looking for some people to speak with and any tips and advice would be great. I appreciate you all.
  15. Why do in feel like Nokta Makro copy other manufacturers? This new one has alot of similarities of the equinox. The simplex I feel had alot of similarities to the deus, Fast mode (park 2) deep (park 1) pitch mode (field) same shape shaft. The lower rod on the simplex fits in the deus and it's an odd shape. No other manufacturers use that shape for the shaft as far as I know. So I'm guessing they copy electronics also which is why they can get new detectors to market faster. Change some cosmetics, copy electronics and bam new detector. The first ones were alot like Fisher, now nox with deus in between. Lol. Am I wrong?
  16. A friend invested in a Nokta Invenio Pro a few months ago, I refuse to add that Makro bit on the end, it's a mouthful 🙂 He uploaded a video today showing it's use, I hadn't really seen much on it prior to this, he's always said it's pretty cool and now I see why. It shows perhaps where technology is heading, maybe one day we'll be laughing at Target ID's thinking they're old school and have a detector with an image of the target on the screen and this detector seems a first step towards that. It's really worth the watch as it's quite interesting, I personally think it's got a long way to go before I'd be interested in one especially for the price of the thing but it's a great start and shows Nokta is starting to really take shape as a leading detector company and likely to leave some others in the dust in the near future. If they continue developing this technology we have a pretty exciting future for detectors. For me if they could incorporate this into the detector not needing the computer/screen unit and making it handle smaller targets like coins and rings better it'd be pretty cool. Perhaps VLF's haven't been taken to the limits yet, manufacturers just need to think outside of the box.
  17. The 24k was relatively short lived by comparison of other US made detectors that seem to hang about on the market for 10 to 25 years, being a US detector it was a bit difficult for me to ever get my hands on one and I guess I was just too slow at making the move on one. So I'm considering an alternative. I like my Gold Monster but it is a bit simplified and I prefer more options so I just use it as a pinpointer, at the moment my primary prospecting VLF is the Equinox, I rarely use anything else. I have a Gold Bug 2 but find it a bit primitive especially with features and I'd prefer a detector with Target ID's and the tiny gold improvement over the Nox I find is very minimal, the Nox has a great range of features and does a pretty good job but I'm wondering If I'd get a bit more out of a dedicated prospecting VLF with a higher frequency. Am I losing much not using a 24k and sticking with my Equinox? The Nokta Gold Kruzer seems a viable choice, it's extremely cheap and sitting in stock at my local dealer, it has Nel coil support which I absolutely think is a major bonus, the Nel snake coil is made for it, and to me this seems the ultimate prospecting coil. I have it for my Fisher Gold Bug Pro but that detector just doesn't cut it for depth on small gold for me as I live in a place with a majority of the gold being very small. I need a the best VLF for hot rocks possible. Why is it that Nokta detectors just aren't as popular, they seem to make a great range. The Gold Kruzer and Gold Racer are what people have wanted in VLF prospecting detectors, aftermarket coil support, features dripping off them, quality builds and water proof and so on yet you don't see them as detectors people are using. Why is this? Steve H had a Gold Kruzer, Gold Monster etc, etc.... yet ended up settling on the 24k instead. Is the 24k that much better than the Nokta? What made the 24k the keeper and the Nokta the one to go. Would I be better off waiting to see what Garrett come out with, with any luck Nel will make coils for Garrett's version of a 24k. I've never owned a Notka, I am a bit puzzled why they make such feature packed and on paper great looking detectors yet people aren't using them.
  18. 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.
  19. Figured I would post my base settings for anyone that cares. Good stable starting point for the Multi Kruzer and Kruzer. Probably work find on Amphibio series too. First off the filtered modes work best with gain no higher than 89 so I use that as a baseline. I also use normalized scaling on the Multi so any tone breaks are the same when changing frequencies. Most of the hunting is done in 3 tone, 2 tone works fine for general relic hunting, Gen is nice in lower trash areas and checking on size of faint targets. 4 tone I use in heavy trash where notch audio keeps much of the noise minimal and any loud targets I investigate. This saves me from constantly screen checking as I can just slow sweep over an area and pick out much of the good stuff ie, gold chains, average gold rings, all USA coins including trimes, half dimes, eagle nickels etc etc. Beach I found the notch audio better so I can tell iron from non iron easier where the stock setting the targets would be choppy in many cases. Last is the Deep Mode which is ok for checking for deep or fringe targets but still tough to follow so I don't generally hunt in that mode. Keeping the iSat on 0 (except Gen Mode) and gains within a reasonable range you can use tracking on ground that varies a lot. If anyone has some better setting be nice to see them. Gen Mode: Gain 89 Tone 33 Threshlold 40 iSat 6 2 Tone: Gain 79 Disc 0 Fe Vol 1 Tone Break 12 Tone 15/40 iSat 0 3 Tone: Gain 89 Disc 0 Fe vol 2 Tone Break 18/66 Tone 15/32/64 iSat 0 4 Tone: Gain 79 Disc 0 Notch breaks: 0-18, 25-27, 33-37, 45-63, 71-75, 81-85, 93-99 Fe Vol n1 Tone Breaks 15/30/66 Tone 15/33/45/64 iSat 0 Beach: Gain 89 Disc 2 Notch 3-15 Fe Vol n2 Tone 15/30 iSat 0 Deep: Gain 89 Disc 4 Notch 5-18 Fe Vol n1 Tone Break 10 Tone 15/45
  20. The rubber boot cover for the trigger on my Gold Racer fell off somewhere. Are they sold separately?
  21. 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. Rick
  22. 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.
  23. When I first got the Anfibio Multi. I read/heard of "D2 mode" of settings being used for Relic Hunting. Term was used on boards across the pond. That I can't fully understand terms being used and, they don't speak red-neck. Slight language barrier 🚧, to say the least but, in past I've gleamed info from. Well, several months later. I still find myself basically using 2 tones, pretty much at basic set-up. I do good with this but, reading the boards again. I'm ready to explore new settings. Can anyone break "D2 Mode" settings down in the simplest terms for me? Has anyone else ran across this discussion before? Point me in right direction at least?
  24. Curious if it handles the salt at all being such a high frequency.
  25. Had another good day detecting a rather large hay field. I was using the new superfly coil on the MK, and most of my finds were all ammo related. I found 12 keepers which means no plastic. They range in age from 1920's to the 1940's. the best one, which I have never found before was a Winchester Nublack made from 1905 to 1938. The others were REM UMC 1915 to 1942, Winchester repeater 1896 to 1938, Winchester Leader 1933, Sears unknown 1920's to 1940's, Western Xpert 1914 to 1932. If you ever want to find the head stamp dates (Cartridge-corner.com) is the place to go. I hit up on some buckshot and a older rifled slug, AKA Pumpkin ball or as my dad would say Punkin ball. The rifled slug was developed by Wilhelm Brenneke in 1898, Karl Foster designed a similar slug in 1937 and patented in 1947. They are the ones you find in most brands today. Of course I found the wonderful 22. This round was developed in 1845 by Louis Nicolas Flobert and introduced in 1887. This was the first rimfire it was in 6mm. Union Metallic Cartridge Co. perfected the 22 in 1884, And "Voila" we have the best selling cartridge in the world. I saved the best for last because they have a great history. Finding three colonial musket balls in one field for me just does not happen. Two of them look fired the other was a drop. That ball is in beautiful shape, you can clearly see the sprue and the casting marks around the middle. I believe they are for the old and well distributed Brown Bess. It was produced from 1722 to 1838. Over 4,000,000 were made. This gun was used in every major conflict from the American Revolution to the American civil war. So the next time your out and find some boring old ammo, You just might find some cool history in your hand.
