Well there it is Strick!

The elusive flux generator in the 14” ZED coil

Good to see all that tuition money for school wasn’t wasted 🤣🙈

That's one of the top ten coolest posts I've seen on gold forums! Thanks for sharing.

Thanks stick, I'd love to see inside my X-coil, and the other GPZ X-coils! Looks like a ferrite choke inside the GPZ 14" stock coil too but the wires go into it tightly bunched and come out loose.  Somethings going on in there 🙂

Very cool post!

Animal name :laugh:

I now know why Mars backed out of making Gold Monster coils, look at that chip in there.

Is the Gold Bug 2 coil the one with fireworks going off inside it?

On ya Strick, spooky lookin mob of animals you mustered up there. I think I`ll stick to a juicy thick tee bone, lightly scorched grilled on a rarin fire. That`ll get Nurse Paul goin, Trent`ll get no sense out of him today.

I agree - it's rare to see something really different on the forums and this is one of those posts for sure!

We've had a ferrite inside our coil all along it looks like. :tongue:

It's not in the photo you posted of the coil being tested in the Minelab bench, wonder if it's just an FCC compliance thing as some mentioned in earlier threads. It seems to be covering a wire junction or solder point in the middle.

Anyone know what that square thing in the GB2 coil is?

Also, I hope my Deus coil goes bad at some point just so I can take it apart without worry about breaking it and figure out how they crammed a whole detector into that tiny amount of circuitry. There must be more shielded in that tube thing.

I doubt it is there for FCC compliance as there is also one on the coil cables input going into the GPZ housing, very interesting development though...  I've seen an X-ray before of a GPZ coil somewhere I think on a Russian site but didn't notice the ferrite on it.  Maybe it was a cut off image.  One of the coolest posts in a long time strick!

      A Minelab dealer down Geelong way put up the below post about an Aussie company starting to make GPZ coils.
      Interesting timing, wonder if the Russian guys have forced Minelabs hand to allow a local 3rd party to make coils.
      Here is the link to the facebook page https://www.facebook.com/luckystrikegold/
      Not looking to start a shit fight here, just sharing info. I don't care what coils everyone wants to run lol

        Brand new GPZ coil coming soon! 🤩
      There is a rumour in the wind that an Australian company will soon be making GPZ 7000 coils.
      At present there are only Russian made after market coils being made, so hold off and bag yourself a genuine Aussie made one. They will be cheaper than the Russian coils and, as always, very well made.

      Clearly, with the huge amount of interest that is being shown in the after market coils for 7000, it`s obvious that there is a market out there for coils other than 14'' and 19".       I don`t take the 19" out much because I have had very little success with it and with my bad wrists it`s just too damn heavy, but Minelab did tell us in the early days of marketing the 7000 that they would be releasing a 11" coil down the track, and now there is another company that nobody has ever heard of making a huge range of coils that are lighter and have so far been very well received by the public.
      What`s going on Minelab?

      I have a Vaquero with the stock 8"x9" concentric coil.  I'm wondering if I should get a DD.  There are quite a few out there, for example the Tesoro 5"x10" (stock on the Lobo SuperTraq) and similar size (open structure, though) by Mars and also Cors/Nel.  I'm only interested in coin hunting with this detector.  Anyone out there with experience care to comment whether or not I'll see (hear!) much difference if I get one of the DD's?

      G’day Guys,
      Can anyone say if this coil is a mono or DD please? It was supplied by the seller with the QED.
      Thanks.

      I have had a Garrett ACE 250 for several years and just bought a very slightly used Garrett AT Pro a week ago.  A couple of times I did not get any sound when first turned on but after wiggling the coil cable it started giving tones again.  On occasion it has suddenly started chattering with almost no movement and I have done a reset and it corrected the problem.  My main issue right now is that if I bump the coil cable close to the connector I get a tone every time.  I have removed and re-inserted the connector twice making sure it is fully inserted but still get the tones.  I have made sure its not the connector itself.  I don't have another coil for the AT Pro to swap out.  I texted the previous owner to find out when he purchased it hoping it was less than the 24 month warranty that Garrett has.  Wondering how strict Garrett is on fixing issues like this or replacing a coil with a bad cable if I was not the original purchaser.  Any suggestions are appreciated.

      This is not about detector versus detector. It is just a video questioning if small coils are always better in trash, and whether concentrics are always better than DD coils at handling ferrous targets. Too bad about the wind noise. Good stuff though illustrating there are no magic answers.
