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.

Great gold detector
I am extremly pleased with my Goldbug 2. This detector picks up gold so small that its hard to find. It will also pick up all other metals also so be ready to do a lot of digging. If its small gold you want to find I have never seen another detector that will work as good as the Goldbug 2.
