I'd really like to know as well.



Active detectors: Fisher F19 LTD, Nokta Fors CoRe, Makro pointer and way too many coils.
Previous detectors: Bounty Hunter Discovery, Fisher F44, Omega 8000 V6, Minelab X-Terra 705, Fisher F5

In inert sand soil (inland, not beach) with the Mars 10x13 Tiger coil the 8500 hits a fresh buried dime at 9" easily in all modes. Even D0 which is the fast mode hit with good audio The rest were strong loud hits. Was just a quick test and didn't try anything deeper.

Some old air tests I posted years ago. They have fixed the High conductor (1.00 silver dollar) sensitivity issue.

G2 Sens 100 disc 0 -/- Omega Sens 80 disc 0. Same 11" DD coil used on both

Lg Cent.............. 11 1/4"............13 1/2"

Jim, should have it next week. Will wring it out. You know, looking back, seems I sold My first 8500 because of being very noisy. Hopefully it's a better machine than the originals. I have a bad habit of buying detectors immediately when they come out. Not to wise but then again, my wife had the family common sense.

Yeah, mine was a early one as well. Will be anxiously awaiting your report and hope to hear it run quiet and will hit your 11" buried dime.:big grin: HH jim tn

Hi Guys,

Teknetics recent price changes persuaded into buying the Omega 8500 instead of the Nokta ForsRelic. I'm getting it Thursday and just came across this conversation. I am curious as well with woodys comparison between the old 8500 and the current batches.

Thanks

I was looking through the classifieds yesterday. Looks to me like woody may have sold his 8500 back on March 16. I've read almost nothing really good about the 8500. Guess I'll run my 8000 until it dies.

Re: Hey dedvw, keep us abreast of what you think of your 8500 when you get it. Thanks,N/T

Will do Jim! It will be my first Teknetics detector and I don't have an 8000 to compare it against, but I have some sweet relic sites and beaches in Maine that I am going to try it on very soon.

Give it a good workout with an open mind. The Omega platform is a good one and really loves coins. Good hunting! HH jim tn
