  6. It should be obvious that the new Nokta / Makro Kruzer and Anfibio models would end up replacing the older Nokta FORS series. The Anfibio 19 is a direct replacement for the 19 khz FORS Relic. It all started for me back in 2014 with the new to me 15 kHz Nokta FORS Gold. I knew immediately this company was going places and they have not disappointed in the four years since. Pretty amazing really how quickly this company has advanced compared to the competition. The 15 kHz Nokta FORS CoRe was out at the same time as the FORS Gold and is almost the same detector. The FORS Gold was replaced by the 19 kHz Nokta FORS Gold+ The 19 kHz FORS Relic was an offshoot of the Gold+ Anyway, none of this should be a surprise since we knew the FORS models were fading away, but I was just looking at the new official combined Nokta / Makro website and the FORS models are no longer listed as current models. They have been moved to the new Nokta / Makro Discontinued Products Page.
  7. Is one of these any better than the other for nugget hunting or are they about the same? How do they stack up compared to the GMT? Any input appreciated as always. Thanks
  8. 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 Chuck
  9. Thinking i might trade my Fisher Gold Bug for a Nokta Fors Gold. It is the standard Gold Bug digital not the Pro. What do you all think, good idea or not. I have heard the Nokta is a bit better even than the Gold Bug but have no first hand experience with one. Anyone that has used both cares to respond i would appreciate your thoughts. Thanks
  10. i have purchased the above detector from crawfords which had a issue with pinpoint which has been sorted under warranty,it was recently going erratic but not all the time i took it back and they cant find a fault with it but the lug on the coil has a crack on it in the same place the makros go it has only been used on short pasture a handful of times as had to use my backup detector i havent been able to get full enjoyment from it with the faults.i asked craig from crawfords if the coil could be changed under warranty but he wouldnt do it and advised me to email the company and dilek which i have done the last 2 days ps i know there is time difference and its the weekend craig says if u message him dilek he will send u pics of it. the detector has been at the shop nearly 4 weeks and would be greatful if something could be sorted so i can get back out detecting
  11. Hit my oldest coin to date with the Fors Relic this morning. 1896 Barber Dime and the coolest crown cap ever! The Fors Relic is impressive in the trash. Too hot to hit the AZ gold fields. This was some Arizona high country relic hunting. HH Dean
  12. Howdy guys and girls. I live in Australia and would like to know which is the best of the nokta fors range?. I will be chasing gold and general detecting for coins and such. Thanks regards.
  13. Took the new Nokta Fors Relic out for a short (3 hours) hunt yesterday afternoon to a post Civil War era site. Very trashy and we have hit this place with multiple detectors.The easy pickens are pretty much gone. The Fors Relic did not disappoint! Keith and Monte's impressions and assessments regarding this machine are right on. Here is a pic of the more significant finds from yesterday. Two more eagle buttons and a under wear button from a spot that is a carpet of square nails and has been hit hard by various machines. It jumps on copper and lead like these .56 Spencer cases and bullet. It has superior unmasking qualities and the processor is super fast. Nails are not a problem. We (the machine and I) struggled a bit with flat, rusty tin reading as a good target, as all machines do, but I think that will improve as I learn the machine. So far, super impressed! I'll share more about the machine as I put more time on it. HH! Dean
  14. Received my new Fors Relic from Chris at AZO today! Assembly went well. Another well built machine from Nokta. Hopefully, I can get out tomorrow afternoon and give it a go. I'll post my initial impressions after a hunt or two. Dean
  15. Sounds great Steve (Makro Racer display as described here)....if your a computer programmer and like buttons.... :) I am just a simple nuggethunter. It's coming down real soon for me to pick the one vlf out of all these new ones that have been coming out last few years. My ole 4500 is my primary and has served me well, but lately my sites and opportunities to hunt gold have got me endless massive tailings piles stretching miles. I am finding the PI a bit heavy and a need for a vlf to be more effective and speed things up so I am not digging ferrous so much. My two choices as of today.....ForsGold+ or the Makro Racer....I would love some advice from those who like simplicity but a very effective on tailings...if you were to choose which detector would you pick for this specific job ?
  16. Hello, I headed back out to same patch as last weekend to try some more detecting. I grided off a spot where I had a patch going last time. I ended up getting 9 small pieces doing that for a few hours. Then I tried the next little ridge across the small creek only about 40 yrds from patch area. I picked up 4 more and a ton of lead. It was getting late in the day and figured it was time to head out. it was a warm day and the flocks of mosquitoes were coming out. I then decided to try a few more minutes and start moving just to get away from mosquitoes. I went around a big manzanita and got a screaming signal. Only 4 inches deep. I figured it was a big lead as I found alot already. i was really surprised to see a nice nugget. I figured it was the perfect time to call it and leave some for next time. I think I will be going back to grid that little ridge next. And its time to hit the whole area with the 5000 and see what lurks deeper. But Fors plus did a wonderful job in all metal again today. It really hits good on even tiny pieces. Well the day ended up with 8.8 dwt and 14 pcs again. Good luck

    Presidents Day Gold

    Hello, I finally got back at it after a few busy weekends with work. Its been like spring for a couple good weeks and it has been killing me missing all those great days to be out detecting. Luckily I had today off to go play at the gold diggins. Last time out was Gold racer so this time was Fors plus's turn to sniff out the gold. It is still very amazing how well both Fors plus and gold racer run a very smooth all metal in tough ground. This diggins is an old river channel deposit with pocket gold on the same hill side. They slid down the hill together and you get a mix of gold finds. There does seem to be alot of small pieces, so next time I will see what the gold racer can do. Fors plus ended the 2 1/2 hunt with 14 pieces and exactly 2 dwt. Good luck
  18. Now if we could get a comparison between the Fors Gold Plus and the the Gold Racer? But maybe we should wait for the new Whites MX machine next month too? -Tom V.
  19. I held off on posting about this one for a bit while I got around to some unfinished business. Since my move from Alaska I have been slow to get another safe deposit box set up. I have always had one for my gold and other important valuables. The problem with posting about this stuff on the internet is it can attract the wrong kind of attention. This is something I would encourage everyone to think about. Now that all my gold and other goodies are residing at Wells Fargo I feel a little more free to post about this. Chris Ralph and I were prospecting in Northern California not too long ago. I was running the Nokta FORS Gold and concentrating on some areas littered with square nails, cable bits, rusted cans, and other ferrous junk. There were places the Nokta running in dual tone DI2 mode sounded like a machine gun from ferrous low tones. I would go along with the detector going "putt - putt - putt - putt - putt - beep - putt" and on hearing that beep, stop to dig a bullet or some other non-ferrous item. The weather was a bit wet but not unpleasant; kind of brings the forest smells out and makes for softer walking. I was afraid we were going to get rained out but it keep just on the edge of really starting up. There was not much sign of detecting, no doubt due to all the trash. Chris was off hitting some bedrock with his detector while I wandered around in the trees and duff overlying the old tailing materials. There was a bit of a mound around the base of a tree and I swept around it getting ferrous tones, when all of the sudden I get a strong non-ferrous beep. I looked down at the target id displayed on the end of the FORS Gold handle and it was showing 82. I thought "That's odd, a coin." I was still not tuned in one what the numbers meant exactly on the Nokta but on a typical 1-100 scale an 82 would be something like a penny or a dime. I have yet to find a really decent old coin since moving south, so I thought I was maybe going to dig some nice silver. I gave a couple digs and was surprised to see nothing pop up. Hmmm... must be bigger, deeper. So I open the hole up and dig deeper, and this dirty gray lump pops out of the ground. My exact thought "you have got to be kidding me!" It was a filthy lump but I knew instantly it was gold. I could not believe my good fortune. I got out my water bottle and washed it off a bit and saw gold and large chunks of white quartz - I had found something really special. After cleaning it ended up as 1.83 ounces of stunning gold and quartz that would do a museum proud. Just a really spectacular specimen, the best I have ever found. I won't claim that only the Nokta would have found it because any good detector would have. Yet I do think this is a case where a good discriminating VLF detector proved to be of benefit in approaching an area that might cause most pulse induction operators to wander off in another direction. I thought this post would be a fine way to wrap up my nugget detecting finds for 2014 in anticipation of the New Year. I want to offer special thanks to Chris Ralph for being my guide and mentor while I learn my way around the Lower 48. I literally could not have done this without him. Thanks Chris! I also wish each and every one of you a fantastic nugget laden 2015. Happy Hunting! This post has been promoted to an article
  20. Hello, Finally got outdoors for some detecting after a very busy holiday season filled with ups and downs. Went to a new place down out in the foothills of Butte county to my cousins buddys prop. He has an a old channel surface diggings at his place with ground sluicing and hydroing. Back in the day they found alot of coarse gold and a few bigger nuggets there. Supposedly no one has ever detected there. So decided we will see what happens. So far not alot just 5 pcs. For .7 dwt. But it is a big area so we will see if it produces after more trys. Did find a few artifacts. A couple old shovels, half a gold pan. Rockerbox grizzly screens. And an old 6" knife. The soil is pretty mild so was able to run Fors gold in all metal. Did try boost mode for a few but I swear on the new plus model that boost or fast is more chattery then all metal on any soil. Quite opposite of last years tester model original Fors gold. It does run very nice on all metal ( general) with sens. 55 threshold 70-80 and even a little isat. I messed with isat and even turned it up to 4 out of 1-5. Still found tiny gold and birdshot. Well till next time good luck to all prospectors this year.
  21. Hello, Its been raining alot here lately, but had a little break in the weather today. Before it turns bad again, I went out today for a bit, after a few outside things to get done. I went to a diggings that I first went to couple years ago. Back then I was using a gb 2. Then later I took the original Fors gold there to find it's first gold. I detected there with new Fors plus today for it's first. It has been pretty wiped out there for finding much gold anymore. But you never get all of it. I grided the place real good before, so everytime I go there now, which hasnt been much, I try to think if there is a spot that I might have missed. Ironically, the road I drive in goes right thru the original workings. But I never really detected the road right next to the truck. Today I parked in a different spot cause I didnt want to make ruts on my friends road. So I decided to try the spot where I usually park. Surprisingly there was gold there. Under the truck all those other days. The diggings there had alot of rich shallow small pockets of gold. I found 2 small pockets before in the begging with gb 2. The biggest had just over 1 oz of pieces Today I pulled .63 oz out of the same hole. Almost 12 dwt. I lost track counting somewhere around 50 pieces in all the excitement. But while extracting and later cleaning them, some of them broke into more pieces. The gold is really porous and crystalline so it doesnt weigh as much as it looks. After I pulled those out I detected some more , but only got some junk. Some of the pieces from the pocket were really small, but they sounded off on the Fors plus real good. It definitely was a good present Fors plus found for me. Nothing like finding a pocket of gold, right where it was born. Now back to rainy days ahead. Happy holidays!
  22. Just a set of photos of the FORS Gold+ and some accessories. For a field report for use relic hunting see http://www.detectorprospector.com/forum/topic/1414-dankowski-report-on-fors-gold-plus/ There are lots of posts on finding gold with the FORS Gold models at http://www.detectorprospector.com/forum/tags/forums/nokta%2Bfors%2Bgold/
  23. Highlights: "Fors Gold+ unmasks identical to XP GMP (with both low & high conductors in multi-co-locate with iron)" "the 10" concentric coil lends itself with a slight edge (over all other coils/options) as a slightly better micro-jewelry hunter" "10" elliptical concentric coil unmasks approx 11% better than the 10" elliptical DD coil. 10" elliptical coil also unmasks better than 5" DD coil" Full details at http://www.dankowskidetectors.com/discussions/read.php?2,95264
  24. I just got my Nokta gold plus detector today and ran into trouble . The screen on the handle will light up but can't get a number display on it. I've check the pins and plug with both looking good. I plug it back in and still have the trouble. The detector was double box and it didn't have any damage to either one. I hope someone has had the same problem with a quick fix. I really don't want to have to send it in before I can use it. Chuck Anders

    A Plus Day With Fors

    Hello, Woke up this morning and the skies were clouding up and was suppose to rain late today. I was going to hike in a long distance to a spot I found last year on one side of the river. But didnt sound like I had all day because of rain. So I hiked in a closer spot on the opposite side of the river above redding. There is alot of old pocket diggins in the area. Some have decent gold. I hit this older diggings that I havent been to since detecting with a gb 2. Found some good pieces there before, but I think Fors plus operated better there because of bad mineralization. The high powered detectors have trouble at these spots unless you dumb them down a bit. I still ran Fors in boost mode and 80-85 sens. It was pretty smooth for hot ground. Dug a few pieces again right at the edge of the detection field. They were a repeatable whisper. But had a good day with 7 pcs for 3.4 dwt. Ill have to hit the other side of the river when the rains go away for a day. So far my Fors Gold plus is holding together with no issues.
