NOKTA/MAKRO ANFIBIO TESTS


Comments

Did not inspire me at all really, fairly average top end detector, in my view not as good as the Nokta inpact

Pros

Well made, all the menus are on the screen instead of having to scroll though menus, excellent depth , better on low conductive targets than high conductive targets

Cons

Passed all the iron tests but not too convincingly , had to be made to find several of them, all the menus are on the screen instead of having to scroll though menus, great if you have good eyesight or detect in glasses ,loads of buttons on the front because of this they are too small and if you have big fingers or wear gloves you will hit several of them at the same time , that is if you can see them!

Like most detectors the readout on the screen disappears after a certain depth, you do not get a readout on deeper targets , so it’s ears only.

Is not able to find very low conductive targets without digging coke.
The bigger coil like on most detectors does not really improve the depth but will of course cover more ground, trade off is the weight.

DEPTH TESTS

The depth tests are set up to gauge the power of the detector, all iron is removed from the hole.

Various size items are buried at good depths

COIL SIZE

11’’ STANDARD

15’’ X 13’’

CAN A CARTWHEEL PENNY BURIED AT 16’’ GIVE A SIGNAL

DISCRIM TESTS

The tests below are to see if the detector is capable of giving a signal on a non ferrous target while iron is placed on top of it and around it at different depths

CAN I GET A SIGNAL FROM A 20 PENCE BURIED AT 8’’

2 NAILS BURIED AT 2’’ DIRECTLY ABOVE IT

NO

YES

CAN I GET A SIGNAL FROM A 20 PENCE BURIED AT 8’’

2 NAILS BURIED AT 5’’ DIRECTLY ABOVE IT

YES

YES

CAN A GET A SIGNAL FROM A 20 PENCE BURIED AT 8’’

2 NAILS SITTING ON TOP OF COIN

YES

YES

CAN I GET A SIGNAL FROM A HAMMERED PENNY 20 NAILS ALL AROUND IT BURIED AT 2’’

YES

YES

CAN I GET A SIGNAL FROM A HAMMERED COIN BURIED AT 2’’

A LARGE/RUSTY IRON HOOK IS BURIED 3’’ BELOW IT

YES

YES

CAN I GET A SIGNAL FROM A HAMMERED PENNY NEXT TO 4’’ BOLT

BURIED AT 2’’

YES

NO

CAN I GET A SIGNAL FROM A 20 PENCE BURIED AT 2’’

2 NAILS ALSO BURIED AT 2’’-NAILS 4’’ APART COIN BETWEEN THEM

YES

YES

CAN I GET A SIGNAL FROM A 20 PENCE BURIED AT 5’’

2 NAILS BURIED AT 2’’ DIRECTLY ABOVE IT-4’’ APART

YES

YES

CAN I GET A SIGNAL FROM A 20 PENCE BURIED AT 8’’

WITH 2 NAILS BURIED AT 2’’ DIRECTLY ABOVE IT 4’’ APART

YES

YES

CAN I GET A SIGNAL FROM A 20 PENCE BURIED AT 6’’

WITH 4 NAILS BURIED AT 5’’ DIRECTLY ABOVE IT

4 NAILS AT 7’’ DIRECTLY BELOW IT AND 4 NAILS ON THE SAME LEVEL

YES

YES

COKE/SENSITIVITY

A few low conductive targets will give the same signal as Coke , so if you are rejecting Coke you may miss them

WILL THE DETECTOR REJECT COKE

YES

YES

CAN IT FIND A GOLD CHAIN WHEN COKE IS REJECTED

NO

YES

CAN IT FIND A LOW CONDUCTIVE CUT ¼ WHEN COKE IS REJECTED

NO

YES

CAN A GOLD CHAIN BE FOUND WHEN COKE IS NOT REJECTED

NO

YES

CAN A LOW COND CUT ¼ BE FOUND WHEN COKE IS

NOT REJECTED

YES

YES

CAN IT FIND A LOW CONDUCTIVE VERY THIN SILVER EARRING BURIED AT 2’’

YES

NO
