Most helpful review for Nokta FORS Gold

No gold
I have had this detector Fors Gold+ for a year now, I use it at least 3 days out of a month. So far no gold, plenty of bullets, shell casings, old cans and even horse shoes, but no gold. I've tried every setting, changing my sensitivity from a 10 up to an 80, the higher the sensitivity the more chatter.

The machine has 3 modes, BSt, FSt and gen. I've spent equal amount of time in each setting, still no gold. No I am not hunting in parks, I am in known gold bearing areas, when I get frustrated hunting with the detector, I switch to the drywasher and usually come home with something. Do yourself a favor buy a different machine.

Eureka gold
After reading the manual and using all the settings in mineralised soil, and some of my own settings,it picked up a lot of hot rocks and iron and did not punch through the soil like the ads state or reject hot rocks, nor did it pick up gold that I ran across the coil, this detector needs a lot of improvements to really make it a usable unit tone ID would be a nice feature to start with, for the price you could buy a lot better detector from another manufacturer. This unit was a total waste of money, minelab got me to buy once but never again!!!!!!!
