Interesting to read the website, once translated, it says they are a bunch of amateurs that develop machines for their own use primarily.

On one page it says that the products are commercially unavailable but that may change in the future.

Might be one to watch into the future the machines look pretty damn good.

Thanks for the share Beepn

It certainly looks promising. I wonder where they are up to with the development now as it looks like the last update was Jan2016

There is a bit of info about the detector on an other forum, including depth tests and some indicative price.
There are posts from the designer/inventor of the detector,but last post was on first half of 2016.
I could post a link if that's ok with the forum rules

I'm not so sure that it is a PI machine as it uses Bi-Magnetic-Coil's 
Would have been good if they also had aluminium and silver in the mix
never the less quite impressive and if they get it right to work in our hot soils 
ML might just have some competition on their hands  

Put me down for one as well thanks ;)

Well I guess it sounds good. 
      They have a big coil on that detector. Looks like an 18 inch?
My Sov fitted with the 15 inch wot can find Aussie coin and heavy gold rings at 2 foot in the wet or dry beach sand and give me a good clue as to the target type.

My Gold Bug Pro has pinged 20 cent coins at near on two foot in dry sand and 18 inches in the wet in All Metal mode.

You know it wasnt the depth I was interested in, it was the discrim and how well it worked if indeed from a PI , even ML have never managed to do this to that level from their PI platform
