The release of Coiltek coils for Whites (facts, proof, and nothing but the truth +)

So, among us diggers there has been a news story for quite some time already (perhaps a month) that Coiltek suddenly started to produce a series of coils for Whites Detectors (mostly metal detectors for gold). It was interesting to watch the reaction of many sensations lovers, but this post is not about that. I decided to dig deeper and find out what is the whole point of why suddenly the manufacturer...

First impressions of the Fisher F75 (photos+)

I finally got the brand new F75 Detector by Fisher! And just as i got it, there is not the slightest possibility to test the new detector because of the damned frost and snow. To be honest, it did not expect to have so much winter at the beginning of November, but i can’t do anything about it. But in the meantime, I will slowly study the manual of this detector. First...

An unusual detector – Teknetics G2 + (review of the kit, photos+)

Recently a somewhat unusual dettector caught my eye, I could not pass by and not take pictures, and i am that guy who easily fall for such unusual devices. But what did i find unusual with this detector? Probably the fact that i have never seen it sell here and I have not seen it on so many forums. Why? Good question! Let’s first see what’s inside the box itself,...

Field detecting with the Garrett ACE 300i and the Nel Attack coil

Every day, the temperature is slowly creeping down, and the winter is getting closer. In the forest, a thick layer of leaves has covered the ground, and in the fields, farmers have already harvested their crop. As long as the ground is not covered by ice, i decided to go out detecting. This time i decided not to go too far, but rather to a nearby field. The farmer plowed...

Medieval gold coin! (photos +)

Noble – this is the name of the first mass-produced English gold coin. This huge coin contains over 90% gold!? The medieval system counted one noble to be just as much worth as six shillings and eight pence or 80 pence, or 1/3 pound. This magnificent coin appeared in the 1344-1346, the years of the reign of King Edward III and later kings used this coin for over a hundred years. The inscriptions on the early...

Did XP Detectors steal technology from Minelab? (facts, proof+)

The detecting season ends not only for diggers, but also manufacturers of metal detectors. For them it is time to roll out new products, start improving previous detectors and develop new technologies and systems. But they also are aware about stealing technology, which were spent big sums of money on developing, especially if we are talking about the company Minelab, the famous manufacturer of metal detectors. And we have already heard about Chinese copying...

Destroying detectors worth $ 9 million? Minelab destroys fake devices (photo+)

China is ahead of the rest. It seems like they love to take and copy something expensive, and they are pretty good at it too! But one thing will remain the same: the quality will be very low and very far from the original. But maybe there is no differences between the same phones that are manufactured in China, but highly professional instruments like metal detectors, the Chinese still do not know how...

Looking for a new place for coins hunting with ACE 400i (photos+)

I decided to spend my Sunday morning looking for a new place for coin hunting. According to this idea I went through the really old alleys near the former estate. Now this place looking abandoned. It’s golden time gone away many years ago, but there were some visitors walking around and watching me with an interest while I was jumping from side to side over the road waving my ACE...
