About the New Release

The Nokta FINDX and FINDX Pro metal detectors are lightweight single-frequency detectors, very user-friendly, affordable, and yet sufficiently effective for historical and beach searching.

The name FindX is composed of two parts – Find and X (often used to denote something unknown, it’s a marker on maps). The series includes 2 models – the junior Nokta Findx and the senior Nokta Findx PRO. The higher-end model, FINDX Pro, allows submersion underwater and comes with additional search programs.

Nokta FINDX


The metal detector operates at a frequency of 15 kHz, functioning as a single-frequency device. It offers three search programs: Field, Park, and Beach. It lacks waterproof protection, hence suitable solely for dry land use. However, its coil is waterproof and submersible underwater. The standard coil, Nokta FX28, is circular and of DD type.

Discrimination is adjustable with VDI ranging from 0 to 99, offering five sensitivity levels. Frequency shift capability is included for compensating electrical interference. Manual and Automatic Ground Balance features are available. The All Metals mode provides a threshold signal.

Volume adjustment ranges from 0 to 5. The mono LCD screen ensures high contrast, even in direct sunlight. Both the screen and keypad have backlighting. Power is supplied by a built-in battery, providing approximately 12 hours of autonomous operation. The shaft material comprises aluminum and plastic, with an adjustable length from 63 to 132 centimeters. The total weight, including the assembled unit and FX28 coil, is 1200 grams.

  • For a long time, I couldn’t believe that the Turks could make good metal detectors. But after the release of the Simplex, I changed my mind. Today, this player confidently ranks among the top3 manufacturers in the world (* This is just my opinion, of course; no such rankings are officially made).
