Hi all, can anyone advise if the Coil cable attachment to the SDC is the same as GPX 5 pin standard? I noticed that Coiltec have a accessory pack to adapt to the SDC 2300 shaft then use a Coiltec coil instead of the supplied unit. 

I have old coils that I would like to try out. 

Wondering what effect using another manufacturers coil would do to the product warranty also, cheers sturt

No it is a bit different to the standard 5 pin plug on the gpx5000 coils, you would need to make up a small adapter to run the coils, they may or may not work well, even though the both type of detectors are Pulse Induction machines.

Thanks David. It seems to me that a few sweetheart deals have been struck between Minelab, Coiltek and NF.

NF get to supply alternative coils for the 7000 with the chip in the lead and not Coiltek. But Coiltek get to design and supply alternative coils for the 2300 with the different plug and the existing NF coil range cannot connect to the 2300 without a plug change.  Your thoughts? 

Makes me think that Minelab had no intention of introducing alternative coils for the 7000 all along. Let someone else do all the expensive R&D for the now aging models but keep things under control. Cheers sturt

      I haven't used my Treasure Pro in about a year and it has been packed up and hauled around a bit. I turned it on and I get random readings all over of the scale.  I followed the directions to reset it with no change.  If the coil is not connected it is quiet.   Could I have a broken coil?

      I was thinking the other day about some of the best metal detectors of the analog age and early digital age.  My memory shows concentric searchcoils, the Fisher CZ series being an example.
      What is the earliest commercial detector that had the commercial option of a DD coil?  (As opposed to prototypes, experiements, garage builds, etc., although if you know of any of those it would also be interesting to read about.)  Were there analog detectors (and if so, which ones) that worked with DD coils or did those not come around until digital circuitry took over?

      Finally got a Superfly for my Multi Kruzer. It weighs just .01 lbs more than the stock 7x11. Overall it is less chattery and I can kick the gain up much more. Depth wise on a silver dime it at same gain settings it will go between 2"-3" deeper with steadier numbers. Target separation seems to be about the same and in the field I gave it a go for about an hour or so and it was really nice to swing. Though I only found a bit of clad I plan on giving this one some serious hours.
      Not sure if it is a worthy upgrade for anyone with an Amphibio but if you have one of the Kruzers I highly recommend it.

      I leave you a video in case someone wants to do it. Having two dishes to choose from, I don't know if it's worth it. Although it must be recognized that the plate is much cheaper and larger. The video is in Spanish but the procedure to do it looks pretty good.

      What is wrong with the Gold Kruzer?   
      Why doesn't NEL or CORS or Magic or Detech make any coils for the Gold Kruzer?    
      They make full lineups of coils of for the Gold Racer, but not a one for the Gold Kruzer.   
      You can't say its because of the water proof connector, as they make coils for the Kruzer and Anfibio.
      You can't say its because of the frequency as they make coils for the Gold Racer and the Gold Kruzer is basically a waterproof Gold Racer.
      So what gives?  Why do the aftermarket coil mfg's treat the Gold Kruzer like an ugly step-child?

      I was listening the other day to C-Scope talking about the new Evo-6000. They said they opted for single frequency operation with the coil set for one frequency as it is better as it resonates at it's design frequency, in this case 17khz. They did say there will be option coils to change the frequency higher or lower but this will mean purchasing a new coil to change frequency.
      Is this truly the best way to achieve the best sensitivity at a given frequency or are they just holding on to old tech.
      There are other makes of detector that you can change frequency with the same coil (Deus, ORX, Kruzer, Anfibio, Nox etc) do these machines have a set resonate frequency matched to the coil which offers best performance and do they lose sensitivity if you change frequency? Or is there a way of making the coil sensitive to a range of frequencies.
      Just wondering why they chose to go a different route to others on the frequency selection?
