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.

Lobo Super Traq
Best all around coin, relic, machine I have ever owned. No nuggets yet, or at least not gold ones, found a couple pounds of lead/galena nuggets up in Wisconsin, at least 50 pieces of gold and silver jewelry, several chains, and over 500 bucks in clad and pennies.

Best all around coil is the 9x8, pinpoints extremely well and detector has VCO pinpoint and auto ground tracking in all metal mode. THe only misgivings I have with it are that it hates water. I have had to return it 4 times now for retuning and they always accuse me of water damage.

I bought a Headhunter Diver last year and it is the best for ring hunting in water. The LST is a keeper. I have 4 coils for mine, hope to use the new Tejon 10x12 coil with it when it comes back from retuning. I always get my LST tuned to the 9x8 coil in disc mode for max depth, like a foot on gold rings.

This is the only detector I have ever owned that will go deeper on gold jewelry, by 3-4 inches, than on, say a silver quarter, about 8 inch on the quarter and 12 inch on a heavy gold ring, AFTER the retune.

It comes stock with a 5 x 10 elliptical which is harder to pinpoint with. Gimme that 9x8 anyday. I guess the 5x10 is what is preferred for nugget hunting but I still say the 9x8 is the best coil for this unit.
