Detech dd coils say they can give good discrimination with Minelab PI machines,

can anyone give a forum or reference discussing this

I have a 15” Fred.... seems like it will do what it says it should...I only had it on once around camp and it would blank out trash well. 

I haven’t used a DD since my Turdy-500 days.... I used to like it around the lake near Lucky’s.

If you have a trashy area to check may as well spend some of that mouldy drywall money and see what you think ??

I have the 12.5" round and a larger SEF Detech coil and GPX iron reject works as expected with them.  If there is a difference, it is not discernable and iron reject is probably about 75 percent reliable in the first place.  FWIW Iron reject is not really true iron discrimination because you can still get false breaking of non-ferrous targets with either a 3rd party or the ML Commander coils - but that's just the nature of iron reject as implemented on PI detectors vs. Disc on vlf induction balance machines.

I was just curious...a friend told me he read a post on another forum that indicated excellent discrimination with the 5000 and a Detech-dd coil....

If true that would be great for many people...

not me, I have a 7000 and 800 sitting around, lonely and blue.

Ah ok Fred...

A note on how we are doing Fred..

we were out test running the dry blower yesterday... Trent has installed new triple phase electric motors that with a beautiful wiring job that one of our mates installed.   We found the shaker deck was running a little too slow so we came in to town and got a different sized pulley to speed it up....

which it did, almost to the point of implosion....But the fail safe belt flew off first?

Looks like  we have the day off while we’re waiting on parts ...which is good because both of us have a cold that is going around.? aaarg...

Good news is we got about a gram and a half for a one hour effort yesterday... when we get that baby tuned in I will post a video of it in action.

And the support trailer is another beauty along with the 21kw genny .

Be good Fred!

This is part of a post by Daniel in Tennessee from Dan Kankowski forum....if This infringes on someone's rights, please delete. Good news for gpx users...

For the effective depth of the iron discrimination part...I have found this actually varies quite a bit in your overall settings AND coil used. I ditched the stock Commander coils and bought all DeTech coils for my GPX. I found a new site back in the spring while hunting with the 15 inch Spiral DD coil and it had a little more iron mixed in with the site than what I liked. I could hear the iron and know it was iron. Didn't dig a single nail or anything with the 15 inch coil. On a return visit, I opted to put the 11 inch DD coil on there because I have to use a harness system with the 15 inch due to the weight. I wanted to be as light as I could, because it had started getting into the 80s in the temps and that harness is hot. I got to my little spot and started rehunting in the iron. I bet I dug 50 nails in the first 2 hours of hunting. They all sounded like deep bullets to me. I went back to the truck and put the 15 inch coil on. I didn't dig a single nail the rest of the day and all I found were bullets, camp lead, buttons, j hooks, etc. All good stuff except the occasional shotgun shell. So coil size and how it is wound does impact the iron disc range and sound nuances. I have since bought a new DeTech 11 inch coil to replace the 11 inch Commander. I've yet to find time to use it but my hope is that it has the same effect as its big 15 inch brother on the sounds, and will help me get away from that harness.

Could be to do with a Detech coil patent Fred although not sure which coils incorporate it:

"Detech Ltd is the first company in the world, producing searchcoils with built in magnetic sensors in the middle sector.  This allowed perfect discrimination of the ferrous objects by the PI detectors."

      Is $67 USD a good price for a Detech 15x8" GPX Coil brand new, still in box from a reputable seller?  I thought it was so I bought it.  It had the feature I love about my 12x6" X-coil. good ground coverage with sensitivity to small gold.  It's why my X-coil has barely left my GPX since getting it but I'd prefer to have a coil I can leave on each detector, saves me time and effort in changing coils too often
      I believe this is an old style bundle wound coil....
      Has anyone had experience with this coil?
      I ended up buying it today as the price just seemed too good to refuse and hope to use it on my QED.
      I can't find out much about it, only one person I know has had one and wasn't overly impressed but I do know coils behave differently in different environments. The manufacturers promo text makes it sound good.

       
      15 x 8" Monoloop Closed Design Elliptical  800g
      For Minelab GPX, GP and SD series detectors
      This closed design coil has been designed to go deeper than standard coils.  You can search a large area quite fast, due to the easy size and weight, without losing any depth!
      Made to locate Gold!  Very stable, no false signals, able to work in heavy mineralisation.  Add this coil to your detector and go over ground you previously searched and you will be pleased with the added GOLD you will find. 
      Every GOLD prospector's wishlist item.
      15 x 8" MONO coil is sensitive to smaller gold and still very stable over the ground locating gold nuggets not only in new undetected ground, but gold has been found in many areas that have been searched with detectors and said to have no more gold to find.  MONO type search coils and larger size SEF coils have become the coils of choice for most professional and serious gold hunters throughout the world.  Better sensitivity, more accurate, able to locate both large and small gold nuggets that other coils miss.  Closed or solid design makes searching rubble strewn ground a breeze without snagging.

      Wondering if anyone uses the Detech brand of coils on their Minelabs and how do you think they compare with coiltek and NF.

      It was my understanding that Nokta mentioned a while ago that the NOKTA IMPACT would be a unit built for Kellyco only, as a more or less exact copy of the original Racer, only on an ergonomic shaft as opposed to the terrible Racer shafts.

      As far as performance on the Goldfields go, both the CoRe, Fors Gold and Racer are left wanting badly. The Gold Racer I haven't used yet but will very soon, and even with it's new 'intelligent vsat, I don't hold much hope for it due to such a high frequency, limiting it to surface and just a few inches depth on smallish gold.

      The most interesting units are one that a lot of guys aren't picking up on yet, that is the release of the new Detech Chaser's in a few weeks.
      I guess Detech didn't get involved in all the cash for comments the other brands chose to push their units with.
      Even judging by the now discontinued analogue Detech units as the Winner and Plus and finally Reacher ....these early models absolutely kill Nokta/Makro units on both quiet and hot ground. So the new digital Chaser's are looking pretty good.
      The first one will be in 14kHz, then another in 28kHz, and the third in 4.8kHz like the Detech Relic Striker that puts an enormous amount of gain out of it's very large stock SEF coil.
      The Chaser will have a full coil selection to boot.

      Their SEF and Ultimate coils are legendary, as are some of their gold coils, but saw that now their making coils for the Makro Racers too:
      The Ultimate coil might do well on the Racers if you have a need for a large coil.
