Finally I had the chance to complete my tests of the last Detech machine, the RELIC STRIKER.
Even though a new, top of the line model has been announced, the Detech CHASER, Relic Striker is still on top of the list of Detech’s “deep-seeking” catalog. This two word expression, in the treasure hunting jargon is related to specialized metal detectors, for hunting not so small and very deep targets, usually larger than a coin. In other words, these machines are biased toward big targets (e.g. militaria and caches) at great depth.
Detech Relic Striker is a single-frequency VLF/IB running at 4,8 kHz with a “monster” SEF (Symmetric Electromagnetic Field) 18”x15” coil. These simple informations, read by an experienced hunter, will be immediately recognized as a evident clue of a deep-seeking detector, high conductivity target oriented (copper, bronze, silver etc), great for not-so-tiny, very deep buried things and especially in highly mineralized soils.
