NOMADS USA Application FormMEET THE NOMADS TEAM Darnell Williams TexasNokta/Makro detectors is all I’ve used for the past 5 years on my metal detecting career.Ever since I been on YouTube I just used Nokta/Makro detectors from the Red Racer to the Impact to Multi Kruzer and to the Anfibio.I love these detectors ever since I purchased the Red Racer…I love the build of the detectors, very easy to learn… just amazing detectors and that’s why I consistently used the Nokta/Makro detectors.I’m known on YouTube and forums as the Nokta/Makro Man…there’s no doubt if the question was asked here in America who is the most well-known Nokta/Makro user…hands down my name would be said…HELLO WORLD Dwight Colon FloridaDwight Colon is a true land historian and treasure hunter based out of Orlando, Florida.His 13 years as a detectorist has focused mainly on detecting beaches to include diving; however, he also searches the occasional home site and other land for good measure. Driven by his love for unearthing history and detecting with friends, he enjoys finding all kinds of treasure and sharing it with the world.Dwight is the founder of the New Age Goonies metal detecting group on Facebook, which has grown from a small, grass roots club into a complete movement; made up of likeminded individual sharing in their love of the hobby. He comes to Nokta Makro after having first tested their products and developing a respect for the brand.With a focus on incorporating the most advanced technology into their detectors, Dwight believes they are building the detectors of the future — the best on the market. Because of this, he feels Nokta Makro is a company he can truly stand behind. Rise and Grind it’s Metal Detecting Time! Jason Rabito MassachussetsI have been metal detecting for thirty plus years. Throughout the years I have come to understand and respect the importance of practicing good metal detecting ethics as well applying the best tools I can obtain that enables one to find what other machines have left behind.Nokta/Makro is the only metal detector manufacture that offers me top notch build quality and performance right out of the box without modifications. Nokta/Makro is also one of the only manufacture of metal detectors that has indeed discovered the pulse of what detectorists want in a machine by communicating with customers on a direct basis and then applying what is asked for. I am humbled and proud to be a member of the Nokta/Makro Nomad USA team. Matthew Pfeil CaliforniaI have been actively detecting since 2012. I started with an older machine from eBay, an old Whites detector built in 1978. After six months I decided that I enjoyed the hobby and wanted to advance and invest in a new machine.In 2013, friends of mine on social media suggested that I start a YouTube channel to help document my journey in this hobby. I dabbled in media production while in school and found that I enjoyed putting myself out there, sharing with friends and family this hobby!Since then, I have used several other brands and styles of machines. Every machine I’ve used had its strengths and weaknesses. Comparing one machine to another resembles comparing broccoli to bananas. Both are food and are healthy, but each its own purpose.My favorite style of metal detecting I enjoy the most is relic hunting. I enjoy connecting with the past. Bringing to light an object that dropped hundreds of years ago is always a real treat. Good ambassadorship for the hobby is paramount. Clean as you go, hunt where you have permission. Follow all local laws and regulations. Fill your holes and don’t leave any trash. Be kind and respectful to others. But most of all, remember that this is a hobby and a way to have fun and relax.I am thankful to have the opportunity to represent Nokta Makro. I feel we share the same values in the hobby. I am looking forward to this new journey as a member of the NOMADS.

Scott Troeckler IlinoisMy name is Scott Troeckler and I live in Illinois, with my wife and 2 sons.I’ve been metal detecting for over 3 years now.

The group has since expanded to include members from all over the world.Nokta-Makro is leading the industry with its high quality detectors and gear. I personally enjoy swinging the Anfibio Multi.

In that time I have met alot of great people and made many friends.I have used alot of machines from alot of brands. Nokta Makro came on scene and I got an Anfibio Multi and havent looked back!I really like the brand, from the technology that goes into the detectors to the outstanding customer service. I am proud to be associated with Nokta Makro, and very proud to be a member of the NOMAD Team. Many great adventures to come. Daniel O’Beirnes United KingdomHi..my name is Daniel O’Beirnes. I’ve been detecting for 44 years. When I first started, I made a wishlist.It took me 27 years to do it. If Nokta Nokta Makro were around in those days, it would have probably taken me half the time! Federico Cini ItalyI started a long time ago with metal detecting trying to always use more performing and complex equipment in use, I opened a YouTube channel later, to explain the use of such equipment and any tricks of the trade …. one day a dealer makes me try a metal detector that just came out, the Makro Racer… nice metal detector I liked immediately for the precision and speed in detecting the target but a little less for the depth of detection which I was looking for desperately in that period. With the arrival of the Racer 2, the performance changed and my feeling of having a performing metal detector in my hands was fulfilled.A new world opened up at the arrival of the Nokta Force Relic: super-performing metal detector with precision on small objects and a good depth of detection… hence a love for these metals … the Impact came out I took it on the fly for testing and I still have it, excellent stability and precision… very good depth on my land … the only disadvantage is the weight but still well balanced; now I also own the Anfibio Multi of the Nokta Makro home …. I have already established a great feeling strengths are the depth and precision but all added are my favourite metal detectors … I always hope for new releases to see what this house will pull out of the hat… another point that I want to mention is the professionalism and speed with which this brand solves any issues or possible defects… an extremely attentive brand to the needs of the detectorist… Günter Ehlen GermanyI am Günter and I come from near Cologne in the west of Germany. I am a passionate seeker / hunter and my finds are mostly Celtic, Roman and medieval.It is the most beautiful hobby, you are in nature and always discover a piece of history. With the detectors of the company Nokta-Makro immediately notices the dedication of the manufacturer and the proximity to viewfinders / hunters.The performance and equipment of the devices leaves nothing to be desired and prove in all situations that it is a high end product. Luke Merriman United KingdomI have been metal detecting for 6/7 years and start YouTube channel just over 2 years ago where I joined my creative nature with my passion for metal detecting.I have used NOKTA MAKRO ever since using the back then MAKRO RACER 2 which I had many successful hunts with including my first ancient 2000-year-old gold! From then I upgraded to the MAKRO MULTI KRUZER which again had many many successful hunts with and I still use occasionally today and hold great love for this machine!Now use the NOKTA MAKRO ANFIBIO as my daily go to machine that over the past year has given me my best year detecting yet yielding an extremely impressive haul of gold and silver a further 2 ancient gold coins and another gold coin from over 300 years ago along with uncountable amount of amazing artefacts and silver!As a company I have seen NOKTA MAKRO grow from strength to strength and the machines getting increasingly more and more impressive with the easy interface along with performance and build quality that is truly unmatched. It’s been a great pleasure to represent the fastest growing metal detecting company on the market! Mike Silver France43 years old from France. Goldsmith and detectorist since twenty years. Diver in apnoea, descent up to 15 meters. Specialist beaches and lakes. Perfectionist and self-taught.I am constantly in surpassing and performance. Nokta Makro knows how to listen to the detectorists and has his detectors evolve. The detectorists are very demanding and they have met their expectations both power and design. Sebastiaan Hoogenberg NetherlandsHey! I’m Sebastiaan Hoogenberg from the Netherlands, I’m 41 years old and just married with my beautiful wife Marieke known here as “The Makro Lady” and we have both a daughter (both 11 years). I have been searching with the Metal Detector for almost 5 years now.I search a lot on salt beach, water … and if I’m not there then in a park, grass, field etc. My first time I came in contact with a Nokta Makro machine was the Makro Racer 2….great machine! After that I had a different brand of metal detector for 7 months, but always kept the Racer 2 there … but I still grabbed more and more towards the Racer 2. Then I sold the other machine and bought a Nokta Impact instead… in the meantime I had started a YouTube Channel “The Dutch Metal Hunters” to record the hunts. During this period, I was also approached by Kooistra Metaaldetectors and because of them my channel got a huge boost (and still).Then I used the Multi Kruzer, Anfibio and recently also the Gold Kruzer (I am currently using the last 3 and I really love these machines!) The reason why I love the Nokta Makro machines so much? These metal detectors speak my language …. I understand what they want to say. I have already made beautiful finds with the Nokta Makro machines. And now I was asked if I wanted to join team Nomads for the Netherlands. What an honor! Simone Riccardini ItalyHello everyone…my passion for metal detecting was born about 25 years ago. Since then, it has grown more and more and now it is nearly a lifestyle to me. I am the chairperson of an historical research association in our area, and during these years I have organized and yet helped to organize several Metal Detecting events in Italy. I have owned different brands and models of metal detectors, which I have chosen on the basis of performance and ease of use.During the last three years, I started to evaluate these properties even in Nokta Makro devices, but I don’t deny that initially I was very uncertain about the purchase, and my choice was driven by the good value for money. Today I can say for certain that I found what I was really looking for in Nokta Makro products: the simplicity of the menu combined with the performance and innovative design contribute to make these devices the best ones on the market.Today I am glad to own three devices that I always use and bring with me: an Impact, an Anfibio and a PulseDive Pointer. I have accepted with much pleasure the invitation to join the new European Nomads Team, also because I admire a lot the Nokta Makro company and I have great confidence in its new and future products. Greg Drope CanadaI fell in love with metal detecting after stumbling across some detecting videos online 5 years ago.I’ve always had a big interest in history and detecting provides a great link to the past. I enjoy using Nokta | Makro equipment as it is built tough & packs a punch out in the field! I was very fortunate to be selected to be a NOMAD and happy to represent THE GREAT WHITE NORTH!
