Nokta Anfibio recovery speed test (depth, salt). NEW 2018

Just look at this coil! The French XP ORX machine wasn’t the only novelty introduced at Detectival 2018, the UK metal detecting rally. Nokta, the Turkish manufacturer, have revealed their own new device – Nokta Anfibio. In sober fact, some of the units were distributed among the bloggers before, and by now, on the day of the presentation itself, we already have several video reviews and tests. Well, how do you like the Turkish idea of getting the bloggers onboard? So, here comes a new product – a Nokta Anfibio metal detector. Please share your thoughts on this device in the comments below. Feel free to write about your own experiences and ideas. Continue reading

Minelab Pro-Find 35 vs XP MI-6. Depth comparison

On the one hand, it’s a usual comparative test of the Minelab Pro-Find 35, XP MI-6 and Garrett Pro-Pointer AT probes. All three of these units can be submerged in water, are relatively new (fresh models) and have won definite recognition from treasure hunters. Deservedly or not, this is of no interest to us at the moment. It’s the other side of the coin that is of interest. The XP MI-6 is very often called the extra deep device. But it doesn’t fully reflect the actual situation. Yes, the probe is deep enough, but not so deep that you overpay for it. Moreover, you should be aware that even the most expensive (feature packed, recognized, widely promoted etc.) pinpointers can miss targets. Are you surprised? Take a look at this short test – very informative, +25 to any detectorist’s karma guaranteed. Continue reading

Minelab Equinox: underwater wireless signal test

Do you believe in miracles? Not many deteсtorists know that all wireless technologies are up against difficulties when working underwater. By way of example, in order to transmit a signal from your heel to your head a submersible XP Deus unit should be used with an antenna that has the same length as the shaft itself. However, this doesn’t mean that the signal will be successfully transmitted, especially through the salt water. And how about the Minelab Equinox? This machine has a new-generation Bluetooth function, capable of reaching up to 100 meters. Won’t it also be able to break through the half-your-height water column? Or it will? Here’s a test of the Minelab Equinox’s wireless connectivity that can be achieved underwater. It’s really interesting! Continue reading
