Garrett, Minelab and gold pans! (Competing, facts+)

The amount of  “talk” has increased greatly the last ten years (thanks to the internet), and i think the detectorists have noticed it too.

In this blog we only write checked and researched...

The rumor about Minelab

Some bloggers recently wrote that the future of the known company Minelab “is not looking bright”. They wrote that Minelabs “top executive” Gary Schafer left the company to sell “umbrellas, pens and stickers”. Therfore we decided to do a little “research” and find out, are these rumors true? Are these simply rumors created by bloggers who are eager for attention and sensation, and who are trying to convince us this is true? First of all: Yes, Gary Schafer has...

Nel is a top manufacturer in Ukraine?

So recently the guys from Nel had full reason be proud over a new diploma and a great achivement:- “Best company of 2016”.

Metal detecting drone!

So i recently came across an interesting new invention, which uses a very unique method for getting rid of landmines. Around 20 thousand people are each year killed or hurt by landmines that are left after wars.

New Patent by First Texas Products fresh brief of pulse induction technology new for metal detecting 0

New Patent by First Texas Products – a fresh brief of Pulse Induction technology?

Do you know, that there are only two technologies in metal detecting – “Pulse Induction” (PI) and “Very Low Frequency” (VLF). Also Minelab has it own FBS and FBS2, but I don’t know how it works and is it an independent technology or just an improvement of VLF? PI is good for high mineralized grounds and many underwater detectors are working on this technology, VLF is common for almost 80%...

Fisher F2 discontinued RIP 0

R.I.P. Fisher F2 (officially confirmed)

Today I’ve got a confirmation, that Fisher F2 is not in production anymore. Manufacturers and retailers call it “discontinued”, but for us, for diggers, coin and relic hunters and hobby detectorists that means than coming soon we will see Fisher F2 only in museums. Last parties will be sold out and another legend will stay in memories. Was it good detector? Must be, if it has found a space on...
