AM and a New Fors Gold+
« on: March 30, 2016, 22:58 »
Get 3 pins in my L/Wrist in a weeks time... So only a few days to play with the New Fors Gold+.

A: Arrived in Quick time - Thanks Au Post and Nenad (Phase Technical)

B: Well packed and wrapped to ensure no damage AND nothing to get the contractors thinking it could be worth loosing.

***************************
1: Standard Headphones work BUT no curly cord and the connector and adapter are not ideal. (Minor but needs to be identified)
2: Nice Manual - But RTFM only after I can not work it out myself
3: The Led light is rather impressive
4: Cable clips nice AND the Leaver on the Coil Lock is a BONUS.
5: Got a couple extra in the package. Nice touch (Could get used else where smile emoticon )
6: Powered up and a quick swing and coin check... So different to the CTX303 - Time to relearn a few things.
7: A stack of new Numbers to learn and know AND depth.
8: TBA -

Further feedback and comments to come.  Much will be from the view of a total GOLD newbie and thus any number of features/functions may confuse/frustrate me for a while.

Have become quite attached to the CTX and understand a few of it's little quirks and have developed some habits of my own; that I will have to unlearn.  

Number 1:   The Screen and all buttons are not up top  like most that I have used  :-)

I used a Fors a couple of times but the owner sold it fairly quickly before i had time to find gold with it. It had the screen on the side of the body, this would be ok if it hinged out like a video camera.

Fors Gold OR Gold Plus

My main requirement is to cherry pick a few places and focus on some particular targets and try for some Gold up this way..

CTX3030 may well remain my main machine, but this is to complement it; and cheaper than a SDC2300
