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.

Easiest to learn
I have used virtually every gold detector manufactured in the last fifteen years and the GMT is the easiest to learn. The "AutoTrac" makes it easy to ground balance even in highly mineralized ground. Or for people like me that prefer more hands on adjustments there is the key pad to make manual ground balance easy, the "GRAB" button makes this process very fast. The "IRON ID' on the GMT is second to none and I tend to use it in the "AUDIO BOOST" mode.
