Test Makro Racer 2 With Nel Tornado, More Than Half A Meter On A Coin! (Test, Video+)
If you have a metal detector with a basic coil, which you want to change to another, then before buying it, you will have to answer the difficult question: which one to buy?
In most cases, the base sensor on the metal detector is to be changed to increase the depth of detection. But to be sure that the new thing will add depth of at least a few centimeters – tests are needed. In this case, the easiest way will be an air test, which will demonstrate the capabilities of the coil.
What do you need to do to evaluate the superiority of a specific search coil? For this it is necessary to find an air test of the coil of interest and compare it with your own. Based on the results obtained, make a conclusion and decide whether to buy or not to buy it.
I sometimes do air tests for detection range to help with choosing a new coil. And just recently I had the opportunity to test the Nel Tornado 12×13″ on the metal detector Makro Racer 2 – I picked a bunch of finds and proceeded to the test.
Nel Tornado for the Racer.
Before I tell you about the Racer’s test with the Tornado coil, I want to stop on it a bit.
What will the digger get by purchasing a brand new coil from NEL?
In the kit with this coil there will be a warranty card, a mounting bolt, a pair of sealing rings under the ears, a strap and a cap on the connector. I’ve always liked this kit, because to install the coil on the metal detector and for its normal work there, nothing else needs to be bought.
Reasonably, this question may come up: is the coil from NEL suitable for the first and second Makro Racer? The answer is given on the nameplate:
Quickly installing the new Tornado on Racer 2 and turning on the metal detector, immediately noticed that the detector works more stable. This is a big plus for the Tornado, but why is it so? As the diameter of the sensor increases, the stability of the detector decreases. This is understandable – the coil is affected by more interference. Therefore, it would be normal for Macro Racer to be a little bit noisier with the Tornado than with a regular coil. But, it turned out the other way around.
The location of my test is not affected by third-party electrical interference, so I set the level of sensitivity to 90.
The mode, of course, I set to “deep” I do not think there is any comment on this.
During the test I do not know how far away the object is from the coil, since there is no ruler. I hear the last clear two-way signals and put a target on the ground. And only after the test items run out, I take the ruler and see the test results. The viewer, of course, will not wait for the measurement, but can in real time see the result for a specific purpose.
I decided to bring the test table Tornado to Racer 2 for those who do not want or can not watch the video.
|Target||Distance in cm|
|Silver Solidus Coin||31|
|5 Pfennig 1925||35|
|50 Pfennig 1935||37|
|“Chestak” Coin 1625||44|
|5 Kopeks 1765||59|
Here are the results of the work of Nel Tornado on a Turkish metal detector.
Personally, my opinion: I’m shocked. This is a huge performance for a 12 x 13-inch coil. I have already found big rusty buckets one meter deep with my other detector, and then i wonder how this one will do? No thanks, I’m for adequate depths, but anyone who wants to dig into the ground till the waist should get NEL coils on his Makro Racer 😉
