Ive owned a fors core for around 3 months now . I really loved this machine from day one. Ive been detecting for 40+ years and have found lots of coins and artefacts over the years including iron age , roman, medieval and of course plenty of Georgian to modern day finds. I have used mainly minelabs in recent times but saw a number of reviews for the nokta range of machines and decided to give them a go. My first outing with the fors core I found a George III sixpence at a depth of around 8 inches. I was sold because it was amazing how good a signal I received. On further outings I found lots of bits and pieces some so small at good depth I was amazed. I did how ever have a few negatives the main being headphone volume being a little quiet for my ears which I rectified by buying a decent set with a volume control.
I also used the fors in Di2 which on a new site I have permission to search became very noisy !! I read a few reviews and studied field tests and went back to my site and tried Di3. Wow !! what a difference even with sensitivity turned up much better suited to the conditions on that site . Walking across the field I got a belter of a signal and a number 52 on my meter. I dug down approx 5 inches and sitting at the bottom of the hole was a grey disc which I knew from previous finds was a hammered silver coin. This was my first with the fors core and to my amazement it was another first. A saxon penny of king Cnut !!! My first ever saxon coin !!! I was over the moon . I carried on for a few more paces and got another cracking signal again reading 52 on the meter .
I dug down 4 inches and out popped a lovely Edward I farthing , a tiny little coin. I started to head back to the car for a coffee break and I had another cracking signal again 52 on the meter and roughly 3 inches down was a cut half of Henry III. What makes it more amazing is the fact that this field is set aside and the grass and thistles and old stubble means you lose 4 inches before you get to the soil .
If you add that to the depth it proves what a great machine this is . I was so tempted to buy a deus or another Minelab but im so glad I chose Nokta. I cant wait now till mid Feb when this field gets a plough !!!
