Makro Racer vs Makro Racer 2


The main difference between the Makro Racer 2 and simply the Makro Racer lies in: improved discrimination with Notch Filter feature (the scale can be ‘cut’ by notch windows), Iron Audio, iSAT feature (Intelligent Self-Adjusting Threshold), and Deep search mode. And… it seems like the Makro Racer 2 has learned to remember the settings!

Makro Racer 2 PRO


These are two packages: the standard Makro Racer 2 and Makro Racer 2 PRO. The standard Racer 2 package includes a metal detector with an 11 DD coil, headphones and power supply (4 AA batteries). The Racer 2 PRO package is additionally supplied with the second sniper 5 DD coil (RC13), rechargeable batteries with a charger (220V / 12V), a carrying bag, and… the second lower shaft (extended rod). The latter surprised me.

Makro Racer 2 price – $749 (Std Package, Excl. VAT price)
Makro Racer 2 PRO price – $949 (Pro Package, Excl. VAT price)


All about the 2016 new Makro Racer 2 will be collected here. I am wondering, what is really new in this machine?
