Most helpful review for Nokta Velox One

Nokta 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.

DeLeon/Tesoro Rules!!
I bought my DeLeon used as this is the first Tesoro I have ever owned and was unsure of the brand. This was the best detector purchase I have ever made as it turns out! I have been metal detecting for 20 years and have owned Whites 5900, Eagle2 SL, Fisher CZ-7, CZ3D, Coinstrike, Garrett 2500 and Nautilus2BA.

I was unsure about the single tone and pre-set GB on the DeLeon but I quickly got used to the variances of the single tone and what it is telling me. I have had no problems with the pre-set GB in my neck of the woods. The TID is very accurate, the machine is lite to swing and batteries are lasting forever. No problems at all with the battery doors. I have used the DeLeon 3 times for roughly a total of 12 hours and today I found a gold class ring at 6 inches down in a park! I have never fell in love with a detector so fast as I have this DeLeon. No frills, bells or whistles, the detector does what it was designed to do and does it much better than most other high dollar units. Tesoro for me from now on!!
