First day out with the Nox

Post by Mac91 » Thu Mar 14, 2019 12:22 am

So recently I jumped on the Nox bandwagon after buying a second hand 800. Having tried one at a rally the weight of it alone compared to the CTX almost had me won over, so when one appeared at a good price I couldn't refuse.

Have to say I'm chuffed to bits with it, I was impressed with the depth it was pulling out small targets and even managed a hammy on my first trip with it! A Lizzie sixpence bent almost in half, which also gave me my fist chance to attempt to straighten a hammy. I was a bit dubious to start with seeing as I haven't found an awful amount of hammered to risk breaking one, but as the coin seemed sound enough I thought I'd give it a try. Also bagged a Russian 15 kopeks which was an unexpected turn up.

If it keeps it up it might even sideline the CTX for me completely!

I just love the Nox. Does everything I could ask of it.

Must say though, Fred set it up (thanks again Fred) I’m finding the smallest of things deep. It’s down to me now to learn the tones and numbers. Experience I know.

Since Fred set the Nox up and gave me massively great advice, I’ve been finding a lot more that I ever did with the more expensive Excalibur 2.

Good hunting.

Fred, I’d happily give you the coins and crap I found today for the musket ball you showed me earlier.

I Might find things, but you find quality stuff !!

Thanks all

I haven't even got round to tweaking the settings yet, just looking at a few videos tonight before I try and get a few hours with it tomorrow. I was using the settings put on by the previous owner who assured me they were good (no idea exactly what they are), but they seem to be doing the trick for me anyway!
