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."

      Hello to all 2 weeks a go i took the plunge and bought the most suitable coil for my needs......its heavier than my other coil but the aim was :
      How deep can i really dig
      And how much ground can i cover
      So i mounted the beast on my carbon shaft after a few rubber washer adjustment i was all set.Tide was good weather was clear but it s dark after 5pm and the beach has mudflats and alone with limited network i won't take risk of getting stranded.Anyway it heavier and after a few adjustment with the SAT ,the gain  and the delay i was all set.
      This coil is blasting targets really hard i pick up the knife at 50cm and dug a real crater ,not many targets except the silver earing and the find of the day a Silver Long cross penny circa ad 1272-1303 nothing really amazing but i could not  find anything old about this area...........
      Next day went back to try the CTX on the right side on the spot and i pick up lots of fishing weights.
      Can wait to try the coil again maybe next Monday

      Been reading a lot about the new Coiltek, Nugget Finder & now Detech coils of late. I haven't had much to do with any of these but have detected a small area immediately after 2 x GPX4500 with the Coiltek Elite 14" mono attached. Although not an exhaustive or scientific test the end result was I got 8 x subgram nuggets from the area with the SDC & the 4500's nothing. 2 of the subgrammers came from adjacent to their scrapings so they knew something was there but was still iffy enough to walk away from. I keep hearing or reading how these coils are transforming GPX's into SDC's or even GPZ's but this short "test", for want of a better word, put some doubts in my mind.
      I've got no doubt that there is improvement in the new coils in how they enhance the target information or audio response of the detector through better windings etc. but I'm not entirely convinced it's as substantial as some make out. My thoughts are it may be about 10% performance improvement  (every bit does help regardless) & 90% of a placebo effect i.e. you buy a new coil excited by the possibilities of it's performance, you regain some enthusiasm & become more positive in approach even detecting more carefully + with more purpose - then when you find gold of course it's the new coil that done it right? 
      Another thing that has me scratching my head is how excited people are about them finding very small gold. My smallest bit with a GPX5000, fine gold & standard 11" Minelab Commander mono coil was 0.03 of gram (I think about 0.46 of a grain) so they have always been capable of doing it even with an unfashionable coil (but still a good one).
      Like I said I'm not doubting that there are definite performance improvements, much like the introduction of litz wire, but I do believe a lot can also be attributed to a refreshed or reinvigorated enthusiasm too. 
      New detectors could also have a very similar affect on us. What do the experts reckon?

      Hi all,
      I've done up a video comparing some of the new coils.
      I'm an agent for Detech coils, but tried to be as unbiased as possible.
      Be interesting to hear your thoughts on the results.

      Detech has introduced two new coils for the Minelab GPX, GP, SD series of Gold Detectors. They are listing them as "New Technology".
      They are currently being tested in the Australian Outback.  I will have pricing, availability and more information as I get it from Detech.
       
      Please pm me if interested.
       
      Thanks,

      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.
