Spring Detecting With The Nokta Fors Relic! (Finds, Photos+)

A fellow detectorist sent us a little review and diggers story, where he has been detecting with the Nokta Fors Relic. He shares his impressions of the detector and he also sent us some pictures of his finds. Once again I am convinced that the Nokta Fors Relic is an excellent detector. I remember how surprised I was when I found out that the company Nokta, which produces metal detectors,...


Review Of The CORS Strike Coil Using The Teknetics Patriot Detector And Finding A Rare Coin! (Finds, Photos+)

The Teknetics Patriot metal detector turned out to be an excellent detector! It has a good depth and it determines the finds pretty good, you can detect with it both in open fields and in trashy areas, it’s a pity that there are no small coils for it yet, but since I dig mostly in the fields, I decided to improve this metal detector with the purchase of an additional...


Is It Possible To Boost The Depth Of The Garrett ACE 400i? (Diggers Tips, Finds+)

It would seem reasonable that an entry-level metal detector could be improved a little, right? Maybe improved in terms of depth, because the Garrett ACE series, although famous among detectorists, sometimes lack a little on the depth factor. There has been quite a lot of discussions about the possibilities of these metal detectors, but nothing is better than going out in practice and finding the answer to this question that no-one...

In fact, it’s very simple, it’s fast and without any problems. To do it, you need to perform the following steps: To start, you need...


Digging War Relics

I think that many detectorists sooner or later have thought about finding relics on battlefields, for example, from the era of World War II. But before starting the digging, I would advise you to remember a few simple rules: It is better to dig with a shovel with a long handle. Otherwise, digging out a trench with a short shovel will take quite a lot of time and energy. For especially...


76.2 mm Regimental Gun M1927 Found In Estonia (Photos+)

The 2018 detecting season has not only begun for the diggers of coins in the fields because war-relic hunters have also started. This year, the members of the Otsing Club (“detecting club”) found a 76.2-mm regimental gun, the 1927 model, in the swamps of Narva. A total of 18,000 such guns were produced, of which only a small number have survived to this day. It’s good that in Estonia, the...

Finds – Russian Coins In England (Photos+)

It so happened that I am subscribed to different pages and communities of various diggers around the world on Facebook, as well as to all the pages of metal detector manufacturers. How can I be without this, otherwise there will be no place to scoop up information about new items and various interesting finds. I am a member in a small, but very cozy community of one manufacturer of analog metal...


Choosing The XP Deus – What Kit Should You Buy? (Diggers Tips+)

Even when I chose my next metal detector for the new season, I stayed on the XP Deus. There are a lot of reasons for this, but there are sites of proven metal detector sellers that sell a large number of sets of this metal detector. At first, when I was still not particularly interested in Deus and its bundles, this fact caused a small headache for me and made...


MI-4 – A New Pinpointer From XP! (New For 2018!)

The company XP Detectors seems to have decided to enter the pinpointer market more fundamentally and have released a simplified version of the MI6 pin-pointer. What is the difference? It’s simple – the MI4 is an ordinary pin-pointer without the ability to connect to the XP Deus detector. Basically, all the same settings, it is still possible with underwater detecting down to 6 meters, 6 search programs, 3 sensitivity levels...
