New Viking VK30

Post by Daveruss » Wed Sep 26, 2018 1:31 pm

Well, I’ve gone and bought a brand spanking new VK30 as my first detector. Looked at quite a few before deciding on this one though. Time will tell how I get on with it as there was very little online about them although I found some good reviews on YouTube which swayed me in the end along with the included accessories. Seems like a lot of detector for the money and it’s British made which I like.
:D

Well done

I started off with a s/h VK40, eventually traded up to my current Goldmaxx Power. I sold it on eBay for what I paid. Good solid machine, good luck with it👍
Me - XP Goldmaxx Power v4
My wife - XP Gmaxx2
Divorce if she finds a Saxon or Viking coin before I do :)

Think u may be better off with the 20 or 30 I know they have a beach switch, not sure about the 40 :-/ as to how they perform on wet sand I couldn't really say, I viewed a test on the 40 by Norfolk wolf via you tube depth and recovery and it was awful. try take a look..
I am thinking myself of purchasing a vk30 as an extra detector too keep handy...
Hope u get some one who can give u more info on how they work on wet sand :-/

Hello i have the vk20 its a good enough little machine, and finds coins at respectable depths.
But i think the beach mode is probally a bit ambitous, i think it just cuts iron out, dry sand of course is fine
