For those of you that are interested in the Nokta Impact Metal Detector.
The Nokta Impact will be available in March 2017, pre-orders can be made with participating stockists. In the UK Spinadisk are taking orders.

It will be able to select one of three frequencies, 5KHz, 14KHz, and 20KHz and also be able to update its firmware via a USB connector.
Nokta have now updated their site with specifications and can be accessed here.
1. Slightly heavier than a Macro Racer about the same as a Fors Core.
2. Quite sturdy, does not fold down as much as a Deus.
3. Requires good quality 2500Mha Rechargeable batteries.
4. Wireless Headphones not available yet which is most annoying.
So far the Impact has not been tested much, for learning it has been configured in a similar manner to the Makro Racer 2, this enables me to evaluate the balance and general feel of the machine and stay within a known comfort zone, all three frequencies have been used and seem to work well. The machine is a lot quiter than the racer even at high gain settings while still obtaining good depth. I will update the details here after more use.
