Hello From Yorkshire, UK

Recommended Posts

Hi all.

Been lurking a while now, and thought it was about time I Joined up.

Tend not to post a great deal on forums, as having read threads of interest to me, I realise how much time has passed, and get back to work :ohmy:

Using my trusty T2 (version 6.0) on mainly arable and pasture. Generally fly solo, but occaisionally join up with a local Facebook group for the odd dig.

Many thanks to Steve for sorting my account.

Jerry.

Welcome Jerry!

Good to have you here.

Out of interest, what's your favourite T2 coil? 🙂

Welcome to the forefront, Jerry!  Sounds like you've got some promising hunting ground and a more than capable detector.  Life is good; go for the gusto!

My favourite coil for general use, would be my Cors Scout. I find it a good compromise (?) of coverage, weight, balance, sensitivity & accuracy in pinpointing.  

Other coils in my collection are Teknetics 5", great in hard stubble & trashy sites, 8x6 SEF, good in softer stubble & taller grass etc, Cors Cannon, a tad on the heavy side, but for cruising pasture land, ideal. Kinda hit & miss on pinpointing though.

Had a Detech Ultimate 13" for a while, but it gradually "faded away", as in it lost it's effectivenes over a period of time. I didn't realise there was a problem until one frosty day.  I used the Ultimate in the morning, didn't dig much, then swapped to the 8x6 SEF at lunchtime.  Immediately the field came to life. Walked over the same patch as I'd walked earlier, and within a few minutes I'd dug a couple of musket balls and a Bullhead Sixpence.  Later checked the screw connector for loose/broken wires, but couldn't find any faults there, so assumed i must be an issue within the coil itself. Great coil I thought, but the reliability concerned me.  No one seemed willing to attempt a repair, so it got binned. Replaced with the Cannon.

Bought the T2 used, and found it rather noisy........................... Turned out the stock coil was goosed. That was when I got the Ultimate.

Thanks for the detailed reply.  I am quite the fan of the Ultimate coil, fortunately mine has yet to fail.  I believe the early ones weren't waterproof so maybe you had one of them and it got wet?

I have a number of Nel/Cors coils but I don't have the Scout.  I haven't heard much about it so it's good to hear a positive report.

My T2 was terribly noisy with the stock coil, the Mars Tiger calmed it right down, a different machine.  I really didn't like the stock coil on the T2, the 5" is pretty good though.

Good to hear about that coil -- I've always wondered.  After reading Phrunt's positive experience with his Detech 13" Ultimate I picked up a used one (I assume the new model -- it's black) for my Fisher F75 and so far have been really pleased with it.  Amazingly lightweight for such a large coil.

While we're on the aftermarket coil subject, anyone like the Nel Sharpshooter (Cors Fortune) 5.5" x 9.5"?

I have a Nel Sharpshooter for my GBP,  I also have the Fisher 10x5" for it, I'd take the Fisher coil in this instance over the Nel, it has a hotter nose than the Sharpshooter which is handy for prospecting.  Both seem to have the same depth, sensitivity and stability.  The Fisher is also a closed design which I prefer.  The Nel is slighter better for EMI but in saying that the Bug is pretty immune anyway.

      I'm new to the site and I'm from southeastern PA, In the heart of colonial america. I just wanted to say thanks for helping me on some of my questions. It's nice to be on a site that doesn't beat you up for questions that may be old. I was always taught to pass information on to help people become better at what they do, This site is in line with my thinking and I look forward to many more positive interactions.

      Hello all, I’m new to detecting, but didn’t want to buy a detector that was limited in its capabilities. Chose the Equinox 800, along with a Profind 35 pointer. It’s winter here, which means 2’ of snow, so my detecting area is limited to a walk up and down the driveway for now. (Found nothing except Magnetite gravel)
      Hope to setup a practice garden when spring comes but it’s tough just sitting here waiting!
      For all you detectorists that are able to get “out and about” this time of year, enjoy!

      Hi All from Pokeno,  New Zealand. Introducing myself first.Retired and rather reclusive, I hunt mainly beaches, relic, dirt and mud, and a little water hunting. We live rural and I use a Tarsacci MDT8000 95% time and an XP Deus  Still have AT Pro and and XTerra 705 for friends, visitors and the odd swing. Sold all other detectors I have had over the years. Steve has grown a great forum which I have followed on and off over the years and gotten to know, so I hope to contribute to our mutual hobby as well in a small way. 
      I changed my avataar to a NZ Womens Service badge to honour the following; 
      During World War II women worked at 'men's' work to free up over 200,000 men to serve in the armed forces. They were encouraged to "do their bit" for the war effort - from manufacturing uniforms, equipment and weaponry; to working in factories and on farms, trams and the railways. They also served in the Air Force, Army and Navy in Europe and the Pacific. Whereas in September 1939 the female labour force was estimated at 180,000, by December 1943 there were 228,000 women employed at the homefront and 8000 in the armed forces.  (See NZETC: No easy victory)
