32" Detech Concentric Coil

JR that is no doubt true.

However, the tone of the statement seems to indicate a much better discrimination than the stock coils....

It could be that I have become very cynical of much advertising, I would rather get the truth from users.

inquiring minds want to know, ya know

Fred: I've used the 32" Detech coil and it blanks out iron like a DD on the 5000.

This feature isn't available with the QED as it doesn't have discrimination.

Oh ... that is part of what I was wondering.  How would it be controlled.  So, I still have a 5000 and could use that feature.

Will you be able to use the discrimination on the QED?

You set the "iron reject" level of your choice on the GPX's for the CC coils, just like you do with a DD.

As I said, no discrimination available on the "Kwed".

Do they make a coil without that discrimination that would work better on the Kwed?

Thanks JR;

I don't mean to be obtuse or beat a dead horse...

I have read that  the Detech DD works very well to discriminate iron...

Does it really work that well?  I have had several MINELAB PI's including the 5000 and would not trust the discrimination on a bad bet!

Minelad's dd coils could not be relied at all in that respect...in my very, very,

un-humble opinion

PS: Howard has made a simple modification to the internal electronics of the "Kwed" to enable it to run these coils.

Hey JR, haven't you made a spelling mistake there? Shouldn't that be "Kiwied"? 😂🤣:laugh:

Best of luck out there

Fred and MN:

Discrimination is not a feature I have much use for. Because I work on "new" ground I rarely encounter junk at depth. It's too easy to get locked into relying on discrimination. I've lost count of the number of times Jimmy, Reg or myself have dug good gold under an old bolt or such on previously detected ground. Moral of the story, don't rely heavily on discriminators when prospecting.

All I can say in relation to the CC coils is that the iron reject function works, as to whether or not it is as good or better than a DD then you'll have to ask someone who cares!

I second that JR 👍 I dig everything.

Hey JR...Do you follow the rugby? All Blacks play your Aussie Wallabies tonight in Perth. First Bledisloe Cup match. Should be a good trans tasman hit up. Your guys Wallabies are showing some improvement. So should make a game of it. 😜

Here is a pre match Haka, War challenge, from the All Blacks Game 3 of last years Bledisloe cup game.

Gotta be honest Kiwi, if there's one thing I care about less than discrimination it's "thugby" 👎 

Anyway, you Kiwi's always win!

      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.

      Detech dd coils say they can give good discrimination with Minelab PI machines,
      can anyone give a forum or reference discussing this

      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.
