Video on the Impact with some different settings and how it picks up a coin with a square cut nail and a 3 ringer bullet with the nail.

If he turned the nail so it is parallel to the floor if it would still pick up the coin?

The video does a great job demonstrating the two modes but there are those that make purchase selections based on air tests which I have always felt were unrealistic. There are several detectors that can do some impressive things in air yet fail in the ground. The Impact does offer the user a wide range of options to dial it into a specific site but it is not perfect . . . still waiting for that perfect detector to be built - works great in all areas and for all targets:lol:

I try to have people try a specific detector they are interested in buying in their area or at least get feedback from someone as close to them as possible to see how it performs for their type of hunting and in their type of ground.

A detector that would have been ideal for relic hunting in the red clay of Tennessee where we lived would not be the detector of choice here in SE Michigan for someone that was planning on coin hunting in urban parks. If people view the air test / targets laying on the ground as a demo of the function rather than performance, they serve their purpose well.

Nice job on the video though . . . thanks for the information.

I found out fast, air testing with the Impact will give different target ID numbers and audio than if under a large plastic box filled with local dirt.
So I did all my testing with the targets under the box after ground balancing to it, this gave me a better idea what to expect when detecting for real.



Deteknix Quest Pro, Teknetics Mark 1, Nokta Impact
Self built Mirage Pi's --- they work great in trashy areas!!

That is true, but I can compare it to XP Deus. I have both. And I prefere Impact. Soft, nice audio line if you compare to more digital sounds of Deus. You can longer work with it. Better ID, and finally depth. This is my subjective opinion and you can agree or not.

But I feel more comfortable with Impact. Ofcourse Deus is very good tool.

Impact is very easy to learn and also has very simple menu. I like this fast, turn and go setup.
