Nokta/Makro’s new Anfibio metal detector

At Detectival this year Nokta/Makro announced their new Anfibio series of detectors. It comes in multiple frequency 5,14 and 20 KHz, the Anfibio 14 and the Anfibio 19.

If you have read any of my other articles I’ve done on Nokta/Makro or follow the all metal mode podcast you are fully aware that I am a huge fan of the company and their detectors. I probably talk about them too much to be honest but it’s been a lot of years since I’ve truly been excited about a metal detecting company. My opinion is they are the most innovative company out there right now and they care about their customers. I was blown away when they announced at Detectival they are working on a new detector that will run multiple frequencies simultaneously and what the publics input on what features they want to see on the detector. I could go on and on but let me get back on subject.

I do not have an Anfibio yet but I believe I have tracked down every video I can and read everything I could find. Great depth, fast recovery, handling wet sand and from everything I’m seeing, Nokta/Makro has hit another home run! Something I have grown to love about their detectors is how all your programs and settings are right on the screen making it very easy to navigate, I’m happy to see that they haven’t got away from that. I know I’ve already mentioned it but the straight shaft design is a home run in my book, something about a straight shaft to me has always felt easier to swing and better balanced.

Another thing that has impressed me with Nokta/Makro is their coil selection. Most manufacturers seem to only be making a few coils for their detectors while Nokta/Makro usually offers several. The Anfibio is no exception, there are 8 coil options available! Again, if you listen to the podcast you know I am a big fan of concentric coils in heavy iron and they even offer one concentric.

As we see it in the hands of more users I think you will find this will be another homerun from Nokta/Makro, a company I have come to love and respect!

1 thought on “Nokta/Makro’s new Anfibio metal detector

  1. Nokta/Makro brings something new to the hobby, 3 wonderful metal detectors that I have had a chance to field test. Impact, Multi-Kruzer and the latest Anfibio Multi. They have packed a boat load of “use-able” features into each model. I haven’t been much impressed over the years buying an trying many brands and model detectors. Until I first rec’d the Impact and a set of different size coils. It became my go-to detector. The Multi-Kruzer was another winner, a few less features and modes but, what it did have was all I really needed. Then came the Anfibio-Multi, just about everything I was looking for in a detector. Basically an Impact with a few less modes, extra features, cleaner audio and customizable settings, modes to match my just about all my needs. Performance was top notch with the new 11″DD coil and superb with the 7″ concentric coil. On the way is one of the new 9″ concentric coils, can’t wait to try. I base all my testing, performance on real world detecting–in the dirt. It shows me what a detector can really do. I don’t rely on air test, nail board test or bench testing test gardens to tell the whole story. Those type of tests are are a good reference to get to know a new detector before heading out the first time. Anyways, if your looking for a detector made for detectorists and not what the marketing team wants and thinks you need and want, check out the Nokta/Makro models. The new Simplex models are supposed to make their debut sometime in 2019.
