Most helpful review for Nokta Velox OneNokta velox one
I have found the Velox One to be just what I was looking for in a metal detector. I find it well balanced and a pleasure to swing. It performs well, looks good and simple to set up the controls. Ground balancing is easy, after a few seconds of switching on I have it running silent.
The signals are good and clear, its easy to distinguish between the low iron grunt and the good signal of a possible good find. The Velox does have three tones but I only listen for the iron grunt, any signal but that low iron grunt I dig it.
Depth wise, well, some Velox videos show tremendous depths, I haven't found this. Bearing in mind when a company selling their detectors they set up perfect ground conditions to show depths, so, in perfect ground conditions I think it would find those depths. Most depth I've been finding goodies is around 10 inches. Maybe I'm not walking over anything deeper as I have dug iron over a foot deep. Around 10 inches is a good depth. There again, it all depends on the ground conditions.
Weight, its a tiny bit heavier than what I have been used to, but I can go 8 hours without any discomfort, if I'm feeling weak I always have my detecting harness. The recovery speed is how they advertise it, very fast indeed, no problem detecting iron contaminated areas.
The battery life is as they say. I have been detecting two 8 hour day sessions with no need to recharge the battery. The settings I mostly use if ground conditions allow are: Sensitivity 9. Iron Disc FS. Ground Balance 6. Iron OFF. Signal Audio 2.
My honest opinion, in my experience using the Velox One, everything I had seen and read about it is true. I find it a great machine. As I said above, I've yet to get those great depths they talk about, but it is deep enough to be up amongst all the other machines for the price and most important for me its not complicated. Really its an easy switch on and go machine. I'm enjoying it and have no plans to get rid of it.

OK, where to start. First the Fisher CZ-6 really works exceptionally over ANY single frequency detector. I get both very deep large(up to 12-16 inches depending on the soil) and wonderful on shallow small targets with the 5KHz and 15Khz operating frequencies. A buddy has a Whites DFX and we have compared target responses on our machines with sort of similar results, though the CZ ID's solid targets at medium depths where his are sometimes questionable.
The funny, or should I say sad part is, he paid $1200 plus for his Whites DFX. I paid about 600. Do that math, then think what you would do with the cash difference. I enjoyed family outings myself. The savings has been grand and unit continues to find stuff where ever this CZ-6 goes
The best part is that it real easy to use and does not have problems with sun glare, needed covers, dust, or getting water splashed on it. The box is sealed. Though it is not submersible, I do not have to run and hide when it begins to rain.
