MAD COWS EAT METAL DETECTORISTS !!!🐂🐂🐂🐂🐂🐂


« on: July 17, 2015, 06:26:29 PM »

Well after waiting a couple a days for the weather to clear up and my mate Andy now finished building his wall we set off to go onto a new field for me to try out my Nokta FORS CoRe.
When we got to the new field,disappointed or what,the field was still uncut!!
So after a few disgruntled expletives,and bearing in mind that we were only going to be out for a couple of hours,it was decided that we would have no other option than go onto a piece of very well detected land!!
this piece of land has been detected with an ACE 250, a EuroAce,a SAFARI an AT-PRO,and even an E-TRAC,so I wasn't expecting much at all.
So not knowing this machine I put it into "factory set" mode,and within a few swings I had my first coin!!and within an hour I had collected another coin and the the other bits as photographs show.
I was feeling very pleased with my self,Andy,was getting some great results,including a Roman broach,and also a couple of coins,all was going well until,well I was digging a signal,plug taken out,pin-pointer!!, AH! Pin-pointer, where's me" FLIPPIN"!!! ******* pin-pointer !!,retrace my steps,then retrace the retraced steps,dispair!!.......SHOUT.....ANDY!!.he comes across from the other side of the field,I explain,he says"where did I have it last"?I replied"can't remember " he looks at me in total astonishment.
We went our separate missions,looking for a little black pin-pointer in notso short grass,having not a clue where in the hell it could be!!
After an hour and a half Andy found it,you know,he just nonchalantly gave it over to me,but the look on his face,he didn't a word,the looksaid it all.
I have now got it tethered to me,lesson learned,I ain't gonna do that one again!!
As for the NOKTA,well its a really great detector,very comfortable, easy to use,very,very light,for me....just perfect.any dislikes? only one,the coil covers are made too brittle and much too thin,come on NOKTA why spoil a great detector.

I know a number of us get some brightly coloured insulation tape to wrap round the pinpointers - certainly made it a lot easier to find when I've lost it!
