Testing the Nokta Impact on chain (gold & salt beach)

Back in my days, the only test performed with a metal detector was the one on depth, and everything was clear after the first sweeps with a search coil. A modern approach to a detector is not as simple, including a wide variety: a recovery speed test, a test of how a unit emits false responses, a test on brick and gold, a salt water/beach test, a gold chain test, etc. You want to buy the device that really yields finds, don’t you? Or will any rod that makes a beeping sound and costs $25 be enough for you? Here’s an illustrative test showing how the Nokta Impact works on salt beach: how the machine reacts to a gold chain and whether or not it’s possible to miss such a find. Continue reading

Fisher F-Pulse Depth Test. Most powerful pinpointer

No matter you want it or not, but pinpointers have increasingly greater depth capabilities. The joke about the probe that can surpass some low-cost metal detector equipped with a 7-8 inch coil is not a joke anymore, but a reality. And above all, when they tried to increase the pinpointer’s detection depth before, it resulted in lots of false signals, hence turning the device from a helpful tool into the one that is a pain. But now, some metal detector manufacturers have got an increased depth and stable operation provided at the same time. Here’s a Fisher F-Pulse depth test. Do you find this depth good?

Comparison: Garrett AT MAX vs Teknetics Patriot

The Garrett AT MAX is being smacked down. They don’t beat it against a lamppost just yet, however, no one, except bloggers and dealers acting as brand ambassadors, praises the new machine. But if its price is around $400, the Garrett AT MAX will immediately become different (really different). Do you have doubts? Time will show. Until then, here’s a comparative nail board test: Garrett AT MAX vs Teknetics Patriot. Continue reading
