Garrett ATX And Recon Coil Options

Recommended Posts

I own both a Garrett Recon and an ATX, can someone remind me what was found to be best 10 x14 Infinium coil to be used on each? 

I was thinking someone found the Infinium 10 x 14 mono coil was best for Recon

and Infinium 10 x 14 DD coil best for use on the ATX

Is this correct or are all interchangable?

There a bunch of threads on coils down in the "Garrett metal detectors" section (where your question will probably be moved to)

Too many to list.

Garrett does not approve the use of Infinium mono coils on the ATX - use at your own risk. Infinium DD coils are safe to use in ATX.

From this thread on same subject...

The answer I got specifically direct from Garrett:

"The ATX can be operated with Infinium DD coils. Performance with Infinium DD coils should be normal but is not guaranteed. The ATX cannot be operated with Infinium mono coils or any other Garrett coil other than ATX coils and Infinium DD coils. Recon Pro coils will not work on the ATX. The Recon Pro is not the same machine electronically, even though it looks similar. Use of any coil other than ATX coils and Infinium DD coils, including the use of 3rd party coils, will void the warranty."

      Does anyone here know what the weight is for the new slimmed down D2 coil.  I know the old one was really heavy.  Is the new one much lighter?

      This is a little premature perhaps since we are still waiting to see any accessory coils at all for the Equinox detectors. First up will be the 6" round DD followed by the 12" x 15" DD coil.
      What next? I think the Equinox has genuine potential as a gold nugget detector, but that the open spoke coil designs slated so far are not optimal for that purpose. Plus, some relic hunters etc. want something narrower than the stock 11" coil but do not want to give up the ground coverage as much as the 6" round coil does.
      Minelab has a couple molds for elliptical coils. There is the 5" x 10" DD coil for the X-Terra but that coil is not fully waterproof and too buoyant for water use even if it was. The better option in my opinion is the newer 6" x 10" coil made for the Gold Monster. The Minelab Gold Monster uses the exact same lower rod/yoke size as the Equinox, meaning the coil, coil bolt, and even the coil connector are already the proper size to fit perfectly to the Equinox.
      Here is my Gold Monster 6" x 10" DD coil mounted to my Equinox 800. As I said, a perfect fit. The Equinox version might weigh more due to more windings required for Multi-IQ but the coil as is weighs less than the 11" coil. My Equinox with this coil mounted weighs 2 lbs 13 oz or 2.81 lbs, slightly less than the 2.96 lbs with 11" coil. It does make for a little better balance.
      For nugget detecting in particular a solid bottom coil helps prevent snagging on rocks and stubble. I imagine the farm field hunters would love the coil for similar reasons.
      Anyway, I have no hints that this will happen but I am going to be referring to this thread over and over until it does. With a mold in hand half the work is done, and with the extreme popularity of Equinox no good excuse for this not happening. I personally think it is a requirement for Equinox to be all it can be as a prospecting detector and for many other uses also.
      Nope, not going to turn it on to see what happens!! 
      Anyone who thinks this is a good idea and wants to aid in the lobbying effort has my express permission to use these photos in posts on other forums, etc. The direct link to  the first photo is http://www.detectorprospector.com/forum/uploads/monthly_2018_04/minelab-equinox-with-6-x-10-dd-coil.thumb.jpg.07f2d166da68ca4c6e39bf21759c7c4f.jpg

      I just bought on eBay this coil minelab "super goldsearch 18". I bought it as a project for the tdi.
      I showed it to a friend with many years in the hobby, he told me that he had seen it many years ago and that he remembers it for the "beautiful design". It looks like the lid of a garbage can.
      According to when it was manufactured, it was a very expensive coil, designeg for the SD,  but it has no more information.
      Does anyone know anything about this coil?

      Saw this listing.
      The prices for all Equinox coils was set at zero until recently but seems now a price is reflected on the smaller coil.
      Don't know how much stock to put in this here, but thought I would share.

      guys for several months I'm using my minelab etrac with white coil of the old explorer xs, incredible but true, the depth has increased compared to the standard pro coil, there is a real increase of about 2 inches!
      has any of you tried this?
