We now have four coils for the White's Goldmaster 24K and GMX Sport. The two models have coils with different labels, but they are all compatible between the two models. White's GMT and MX Sport coils ARE NOT compatible with the GMT 24K or GMX Sport.
8" x 14" DD
6" x 10" DD
6" (actually closer to 6.5") round concentric
4" x 6" DD
This is not perfect but it gives you a pretty good look at the relative size of these coils. Click for larger version.

White’s new 8″ x 14″ DD Coil for the Goldmaster 24K and GMX Sport is now showing up at some dealers for $249.95 (internet price $229.95), part number 624-0614. Scuff cover /skip plate sold separately, part 501-4101, $9.95. Great for ground coverage, but for those with a GMX Sport do note this coil will float like a cork.

White's Goldmaster 24K with 8" x 14" DD coil
I recently purchased the Goldmaster 24k. In preparation for my first outing I made a test bed of different materials in my back yard. I also printed of the Conductive Order of Metals which was set up based on the Whites Spectrum XLT.
So my test bed consisted of a nail, pulltab, penny, nickle, dime, quarter, gold ring. After setting up my detector based on Whites quick start guide I did my testing. Here are the visual target id results. I wanted to compare them to the Conductive Order of Metals
GMT 24k reading. nail 39 pulltab 91 penny 95 nickle 89 dime 97. quarter 98 gold wedding ring 94
Conductive Order of Metals nail 0 pulltab 35 penny 56 nickle 28 dime 70 quarter 82 gold wedding ring 40
As you can not even close. So am I wrong in thinking the GMT 24k should follow the Conductive Order of Metals listing? Is there some other listing I should be looking at or is there no corelation at all? Thanks for any help.
White's have lost the plot, first they up the price of the 24k making it far less competitive with other options which to me made it no longer a viable option when it wasn't a good seller in the first place. They then they come out with a waterproof version in the form of a rehash. Why not leave the price of the 24k where it was and make the waterproof option the new 24k price point?
Perhaps they should have just made the 24k waterproof in the first place, it's the way detectors are heading anyway. I'm new to detecting and I've already lost patience with all this rehash rubbish, I feel sorry for you folks that have been in the game for a long time, at least they went beyond a paint job I guess If I was a 24k buyer I'd be angry now.
