The new detector is finally known! Well, on Saturday, September 16, Minelab opened the veil of secrecy. They announced a new detector on one of the world’s largest rally – Detectival. You were not there? And that’s right, it’s more of a local British gathering, and there are a lot of diggers in Great Britain, the benefit of the hobby is developed both in legislation and society is positive about...

Medallion Form The Kievan Rus! (Diggers Story, Photos+)

Every detectorist has a story where he has detected on land which he thought was empty, but still found a good find. It is always pleasant – a find among the earlier finds. But I’m not interested in the very fact of the pleasant find, but rather the answer to the question: how did it get there? How could you miss a valuable object? The answers to this question can...

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...

Garrett AT MAX Is Already Showing Sellers – What’s New? (Videos+)

The new metal detector Garrett AT Max is already in full swing among sellers, but, so far only in the US. In the same place, this detector has already been in in the spotlight of different bloggers on YouTube – and this is good, because the detector must go through the detection of potential problems, so that the mass produced model is reliable and stable. Previously, we wrote about the...

Finding Horse Decorations! (Identifying Finds, Photos +)

“Buttons from Gulliver’s pants” – this is the name that unexperienced detectorists sometimes call these finds, but of course they are wrong. Before you on this picture you can see a brass decoration buckle from a horse harness, or as we diggers like to call them, “horse buckles”. Such decorations were an invariable attribute from every farmer in the distant and not very distant past, and these days it is a...

The Court Of Minelab And XP Detectors – What Has Happened? It Seems Someone Is Uncomfortable! (Heat!)

It seems that someone has a very uneasy start in the new season. Minelab is quietly suing XP Detectors and it looks like they have some success in this matter. I recently found a document in which a judge from one of the US states passes a small resolution – XP Detectors filed an appeal against Minelab’s applications for using their patented technology, but the court refused them. Link to...

Testing The Depth On The Nokta Impact! (Photos, Results+)

Hello friends, fellow detectorists and fans of our hobby! I recently went into the woods to test a new detector – the metal detector Nokta Impact from the Turkish company Nokta Detectors. For depth tests, I’m generally very cautious, because so many people try to wind up the result in one way or another, to sell more detectors. I stand a little away from this, I’m more interested in the...

What Will Minelab Show In September 2017 In The UK? (New Detector 2018!)

In September, a great rally will take place in Great Britain, and in our opinion a “meeting” of diggers from all over the place. For sellers, this is a great chance to show themselves and advertise their store, for diggers – this is a chance to spend a pleasant time and buy detecting items cheaper than usual, and for manufacturers this is a great chance to show their public new...

Finding Roman Silver With The Fisher F44! (Find, Photos+)

There is a field near my city, on which many ceramic parts from the Chernyakhov culture (2 -5 c. AD) can be found for many centuries. This ancient settlement wass from the times of the Roman Empire, and it was huge (several square kilometers), so it’s not at all surprising that there are different kinds of stories about this place among diggers, I even know some of them. Story number 1....
