Nokta-Makro Racer UK review and basic information by Gary's metal detecting


Information so far
As you can see the Racer has some outlandish looks, will they be accepted by the detectorists...who knows, I guess only time will tell.
From what I can tell there will be two versions
Racer : A coin & relic device and the Gold Racer which is a higher frequency Gold machine.
The Racer will be launched first and the Gold Racer will follow a few months.
The Racer operates on 14KHz, the Gold frequency is yet to be announced.



The display screen has a large clear read out.
As you can see there are plenty of user options including a beach mode.

I like the idea of a mineralisation meter it looks very easy to understand

"Gary's UK Makro Racer Review"

At first I was not over impressed by the Makro Racer, for some reason it just didn't excite me, perhaps I was expecting it to perform way beyond my Fors Core, or the anticipation of someone mastering the dark art of cordless blue tooth headphones. I decided to go out and test the machine straight out of the box, as you will see in video 1 the Makro Racer had no changes made, only to the gain.
Within a very short time the Racer rewarded me with a Roman coin, but there was still no bond there, it didn't react how I wanted neither did it sound how I wanted, although the performance could not be faulted.

My second time out with the Makro Racer the relationship started to flourish....I started to bond with the machine, by adjusting the gain I quickly realised I could make the signal much kinder on the ears and give a much better perception of depth, which is something I insist on with every metal detector that I keep. You will see in video number 2 how flexible the Racer is and by making small changes to the features makes a big change to your overall detecting experience.

I wanted to see how fast the recovery speed was and how it could deal with targets amongst iron, in video number 3 you can see for yourselves how responsive it is on a bad area, and has the ability to pick out small targets amongst iron, especially when lowering the ID filter and Gain.

In video number 4 you can see and hear the machine in action, OK no great targets were found but just look at the depth and hear the signal clarity, at the end I give my full summary and honest opinion after 2 outings with the Makro Racer.
