Nokta FORS CoRe

For the Toughest Terrains

FORS CoRe is an all terrain detector that you can easily use on beach, mineralized ground, and rocky areas which are problematic for most detectors. FORS CoRe, thanks to its waterproof search coils and advanced settings, works flawlessly on all terrains without sacrificing its high performance.

Nokta FORS GOLD ground

4 Search Modes

General Search (GEN)
Sometimes referred to as the "All Metal" mode, this is the deepest mode of the device. Different than the other modes, this mode has a constant threshold sound in the background. You can search deeper by listening to the variations in this sound.

Discrimination (DI2)
This is the 2-tone mode and it is the deepest one among the discrimination modes. It minimizes the effects of high mineralization and provides more detection depth.

Discrimination (DI3)
This is the 3-tone discrimination mode. This mode is ideal to use in fields with different types of metals enabling you to search faster with audio discrimination.

Conductive Ground (COG)
This is the special mode of FORS CoRe developed for conductive ground (wet beach sand, alkali soils etc.) What is special about this mode is that it will not respond to ferrous targets and the device will ground balance easily on all types of ground.

Ground Tracking

Nokta FORS CoRe Tracking Along with automatic and manual ground balancing, FORS CoRe also offers ground tracking which tracks the changes in ground and automatically adjusts the ground balance to suit. The visible or invisible changes in ground affects the detection depth as well as the discrimination ability of the device so you can improve the performance of the device by activating this feature on suitable ground.

Digital Target ID and ID Masking

Nokta FORS GOLD Target ID When FORS CoRe detects a target, it displays the target ID on the screen and gives you an idea about what the target may be. ID Masking, on the other hand, enables you to search by ignoring unwanted targets. It provides ease of use by rejecting hot rocks and metals such as iron and foil.

Dual LCD Display & Graphical User Interface

Nokta FORS GOLD LCD Display FORS CoRe has 2 LCD displays - one on the system box and one on the handle. Dual LCD display and graphical user interface let you easily adjust the settings and see all the information you need on the screens. Once you adjust your settings on the LCD panel located on the system box, you can follow most of the information on the display in the front. This way you don't need to go back and check the LCD panel constantly. This provides great comfort during searching.

Electronic Pinpointing and Depth Indicator

Nokta FORS GOLD Depth With FORS CoRe, you can easily pinpoint a target with just the push of a button. As the target is approached in the pinpoint mode, the signal tone will get stronger and change in pitch and at the same time, the depth reading will appear on both screens. Pinpoint feature will save you digging time and enable you to reach your target faster.

Vibration Mode

Nokta FORS GOLD Vibration Mode Designed with the hearing impaired in mind, FORS CoRe achieved a first with the vibration feature. Vibration feature is also ideal for users who do not want to use headphones in outdoor noise such as wind or waves.

Built-In LED Flashlight

Nokta FORS GOLD Flashlight FORS CoRe built-in flashlight offers great convenience by illuminating the scan area when searching at night or in dark. You will not need an external illumination device.

Easy Use and Ergonomic Design

FORS GOLD Ergonomic Design FORS CoRe is impressive not only with its electronics and software, but with its ease of use and ergonomic design as well. With its easy access settings, its widest scan design and its ergonomics which will not exhaust you during prolonged searches, FORS CoRe is an indispensable detector for all detectorists.

Long Battery Life

FORS CoRe works with 4 AA Alkaline batteries that can easily be purchased anywhere and provides approximately 25-30 hours of use. You can also purchase the optional rechargeable batteries and the charger and charge your batteries at home or in your car.

Great Well Balanced Machine!

Review by Michael on November 24, 2015

I really can't say enough about this machine. One would think it would be heavy on looks alone, but the control box is rather light. It is a well balanced machine that with hours of swinging will not make you overly tired. To the dislikes which are minimal. I wish the back light was in night vision red as well as the readout on the handle for evening or night hunting. It would be nice if they could have fed the cable through the tube to give it a sleeker less prone to catch a limb or branch look. I do wish they would include the dust cover as standard equipment. I had to buy it and it is rather costly for plastic and neoprene type material. The machine is easy to ground balance and I have never had a time it was unable on the first try. This machine has 4 pre-installed programs that work great and can be tweaked. I do wish it had the option to put in 3-5 of your own and save to the system/memory. But adjusting is easy enough. Now you will hear complaints in the side display being a pain. It just takes getting used to. It is easy to twist your arm sideways to set parameters and you do get use to this non-heads up display. I paired my Fors with the Killer B Wasp Optima headphones and it has been wonderful. But to each their own there. The tones are great and easily learned for sure. The TID's are usually head on and hardly ever any deviation from the norm, and if so you are talking a point or two at best. The machine also goes pretty deep. I have only mainly used DI2 program so far with some time in DI3. I have yet to use the small coil but that will come soon with an old untouched home site I am going to hunt in the coming weeks. I will let you know and update any issues once I put that coil to work. All in all this unit is well thought out and has a following for sure. I think if someone is wanting an almost turn on and go detector with hardly any learning curve this may be the best option. You have to learn the machine no doubt but coming from the Deus this machine was a breeze to me.
