Flat rusty iron is problematic to every detector, rusted nails are no problem to most makes and models. I use a RACER for just such places you mention, and out of all the makes and models i own and use, the RACER is by far the simplest, and fastest of retrieving the goodies in among the trash in my opinion.
However i can be seen as being a little bias towards them, as i do sell them and im involved with the company who makes them. Yet long before that, i was and still am, a prospector and detectorist of many makes and models in which i still use.
Whilst i use it mostly for relic hunting, it can pull out of iron infested gold fields a little bling now and then.

Ask those who use them how good they are at unmasking in the heaviest of iron infestations.

Thanks for your input, debating do i spend the same amount on a little known or on an established brand. ?????

Well that is the big question that only you can decide on....take a look at the yank forums and have a read of their findings with the RACER compared to some of the better known brands their using for comparison....you may find it interesting.

Good luck with your decision.

Both these manufacturers have ben established since the mid 1980, others have been around much longer.....................  like some of us that are using them. ;)


Minelab Metal Detectors.....1985

Makro Metal Detectors....1986

I'll make use of detectors that are best suited for the purpose and in the area I intend to use them at.

A good point with Nokta/Makro, there is no restriction from where you can make a purchase, offshore or over here the price is the same, better still a choice of two dealers in Oz.

My preference is to shop with a dealer that have stock and a reliable pleasant attitude/service.
