Picked up an old Nokta Red Racer off Ebay for a good price .
The detector works very well and can be used on salt water wet sand beaches.
It has all of the necessary adjustments required by coin, relic and jewellery hunters. Very easy to use and detects as deep as most mid to high range metal detectors today..
My only gripes are that the pinpoint mode is a bit wishy washy and the TID function requires a strong signal to provide an accurate TID. It also groups a lot of good non ferrous targets in the 82 to 84 TID range. Other than that it is a nice well constructed metal detector. Yes it will detect small gold chain.

Yes it did take a while Ivanll.
I think it was around 2015 when my gold bug was stolen and I thought about getting the Racer. I did eventually obtain another GB Pro.
Anyhoo, the Racer is performing very well and I think at the very least matches my Gold Bug...So yeah, better late than never. Very Happy

Red Racer and Racer 2 are both underrated.
Red Racer, Fors Gold and AU Gold finder all VLF detectors are all finding gold in WA, they do it in an environment that is often hostile to PI detectors. Exclamation

I can believe that Ivanll.
This little detector seems to be able to handle fairly tough iron minerals and salt....Not common for single frequency VLFs and at 14 khz is quite sensitive to small gold.
