Collapsed Length With Coil On

Recommended Posts

Want to know if it will fit inside my camo duffle backpack and don’t want to have to fit the coil on  at the site of use. Could somebody measure this?

thanks

This is with the 9” round coin and the ORX. What you see measured 24 1/2 inch from end to end .

 Hope this will answer your question.

The coil will also fold back flat against the shaft.  This gives a more compact profile but you add the distance between the shaft attachment point to the BOTTOM edged of the coil in overall length (a few more inches).  Plus the coil and lower shaft can be easily slid off the main stem and oriented however you want for packing.  It is all pretty compact.  I have fit the whole thing into a carry on for flight no problem with out disassembly other than sliding the lower shaft and coil off the stem so I can pack each separately in my bag as convenient.  In the field, I externally strap it onto my day pack until I reach my destination.

Thank you Chase and Chuck, this is the information I wanted. The backpack I want to use will fit about 28” with no trouble. If I still don’t want to take the lower shaft out, I’ll have to fold down and rotate the coil shaft like me Chase said. Or I can separate them as it looks simple to do. What kind of lower rod clamp does the ORX have?  Durable?

You’re going have a hard time rotating the shaft being it’s square.

 The locks on the shaft is not twist lock being the shaft is not round but a tab you push to lock on a flat surface.

Lol,  that’s funny, Chuck. Yeah, you have a point, so either I can handle the 9” coil sitting perpendicular to the shaft inside the backpack, or I just carry it sepetate and clamp it on at my site.  Really looking forward to running the detector, seeing some really good reports.

The first picture I’m posting is with the locking tab unlocked and the other you can see a little is in lock position.

Pretty sure I can fit the full collapsed ORX in my backpack and just leave the coil outside-just zipper the bag up to the coil which will lie flat along the side. If I don’t like it, then I’ll just take the lower shaft/coil off like Chase does- simply not that big a deal   

 

Expecting delivery tomorrow- so excited

      Since early August, XP have started selling the ORX with the 9" and 11" X35 coils as a stock option for less than $700. The package deal comes with the wired back headphones. Some online dealers that have these in stock are selling this bundle for substantially less than the lowest advertised price or adding in incentives if you ask. Personally, I never enjoyed using the ORX wireless back phones. I have a really big head and those headphones hurt enough to distract me after about 45 minutes no matter what I did. If you are looking at an ORX and the great all purpose frequencies provided on the X35 coils now would be a good time to investigate these deals.

      I’m a Relic hunting for coins and thinking about getting the HF Elliptical coil to hunt with. I have the ORX with the the HF 9” round coil but thinking about trying the elliptical one .
      Like to hear from anyone who may have used it for coin hunting..
       Thanks ahead of time.

      I’ve been a long time lover of small coils hunting a new location for the first time. 
       I’m wondering why none are being made . It could be I’m the first that ask for one . I don’t look to find it at my door anytime soon.
       All the relic hunters and one coin hunter in the bunch I can see why I’m sucking hind teat.

      I decided to hit a hammered colonial site where the last several times there with the Nox 800 no significant non-ferrous items were found. Every couple trips I might find a cuff button. So was running the ORX with 9” round hf coin in coin fast 28khz, but switching to coin deep at 54 kHz., reactivity 3, sensitivity 94. Found 1792-1812 period American  naval button ( undetermined variety as yet). With 13 5-pointed stars and Philadelphia back mark.Also found cuff link, outside of large 2-pc ball button. 
      Thesewere all found within 45 minutes, and other targets were going to be found for sure. 
      I’m totally impressed with the machine. So much so that last night I  ordered a 9” XP X35 coil, because folks? The XP ORX is a keeper with a long future. Deepest target ( squarenail ) at 1 1/2. Punpointer lengths. (15”-16”)
