I just got word today that the new lightweight 15” coils are in production. I have a prototype for the T2 - it weighs 750 grams (26 oz.). MSRP is $149. If anyone wants one, I can get it shipped direct from FTP to you. 

It looks identical to the previous 15” coil - just made with different epoxy and much lighter.

Yes it's the same resin inside the IMPULSE AQ search coil. :tongue:

Industrial manufacture and home-made know-how, tailor-made process for the searchcoils.

Searchcoil density close to 0.4 !!!

For reference & comparison, I have a NEL Attack (15" DD) coil for my Fisher Gold Bug Pro and (with cover) it comes in at 819 g.  (The breakdown is 692 g for the coil alone and 127 g for the cover.)  Simon measured his Teknetics T2 15" coil (pretty sure also included cover) at 848 g.

Does the 750 g. you quote include the cover?

And for more reference, the original 15” coil weighed 908 grams and sold for $249 (MSRP $299) when it was introduced. Ironically this coil was billed as lightweight when it was released at "only two pounds!"

Probably about 10 years too late, I'd imagine anyone who still uses those detectors and had a requirement for a large coil already bought a Nel years ago.  I was thinking of putting plastic wheels on my 15" T2 coil to roll it along the grass 🙂 It's the only coil I've bought and only used once, not only was it heavy it was barely any deeper than the stock coil.  I felt my Mars Tiger 13x12" was just as deep, the 15" just doesn't perform well.   On the plus side I thought my T2 looked really cool with the 15" on it 🙂

The T2 with the 15" was an EMI magnet though so that could explain my trouble with depth when I tried it.

Spending $149 USD on that detector now is throwing money away in my opinion with what is happening in detector world with retail pricing of new models and I'm sure it's going to heat up more yet.

At least the Epoxy is in the toolbox for any new detectors coils like the Impulse Gold *hint hint*

Lots of folks are very happy with their T2 and F75 and I suspect that first Texas will sell a fair number of these coils. I already have an order for one.

I may own an F75 SE soon, try it out compared to my T2, some guy tried to sell one barely used on our local Auction site for $425 USD but it didn't sell which is no surprise.  I'm offering him $325 USD for it and see how I go.

Here was his listing.

This is why I was eluding to spending $149 USD on a coil for it is up there, as the detectors only worth about double that second hand.  I think he'll take my offer, they just don't sell, another ones been on there about a year trying to sell it and the guy just keeps relisting, hes trying to get too much.

      ⁉️ Which one is better? Has anyone done a comparison test between the two coils for a jewelry hunt in the water? (freshwater or land)
        Both are able to use the same frequency. 28 kHz is very good for detecting gold. When I hunt in the water it is a very useful feature of target ID normalization. On the of LF coil, this was a big advantage. I set the gold range, so I only dug out the signals that belong to it. The HF 9" coil is great, but when I increase the frequency the VDI changes, getting higher and higher. The upper range will become narrower. This makes it difficult to decide whether to dig or not.
      Let's look at an example. A 1.5 g 14K wedding ring is the test object. HF 9 "coil at 14 kHz = ID 50, 28 kHz = ID 65, 56 kHz = ID 79. X35 11 "coil 11.3 kHz = ID 54, 16.4 kHz = ID 54, 25.4 kHz = ID 54! If I use frequency offset these numbers will change a bit.

      The general opinion of many people is that the HF coil is the best. I'm not so sure about that. I looked at this idea in terms of the gold jewelry hunt.

      Wanting to Take Bee for her maiden spin .....my mom’s nurse called and needed more supplies...Covid thing has been hard I have not seen her since it started .....But they tell me she is fine ....poor dear has dementia ....I am just Blessed I have a mom I can still see.....

      I Remember driving to Atlanta for the dealer seminar when they introduced the Fisher 1266x and the CZ 6 .  Like most of the dealers that attended we could not wait to get our hands on these two new units ........to say the least they were way ahead of their time ......depth and versatility unlike any unit on the planet made by the oldest Proudest Name in The Metal Detecting World ....... little did I know that that these units like my 1265X  would become  My new girls Betty and Nadine .....Betty the 1266X and Nadine the CZ6.......Booth were Mean and Dirty....but when they whisper that sweet Roundness in your Ear you knew you were in love and there would be no turning back.
            Yes the girls humbled many a proud hunter finding rare coins and jewelry at depths that  others could not see at all .....nada nothing .....right behind them under their footprints....the girls had a way of  teaching My friends a new art of Deep retrieval.
      To this Day I do not know how many detectors I have . And I really always have room for one or two more as long as they have the Right Stuff......some where lost along the Trail to the shores of Eldorado...Nadine ran off a couple times ....Well now she is Back with a New Name of fondness I will pour a smidge of Rum oN her coil and Christen her Aunt Bee.......let me tell you of Bee she is a Los Banos CZ6A from a little Lady From Tupelo Mississippi that only took her out to play once a year after the church supper on the grounds ......So she has Religion......Bee of coarse ......Need to go thru storage containers for more coils....
      Happy Trails

      I finally got my old 11'' replaced. This new coil is working great and I couldn't be more happy. Thanks to Dilek all my problems have been resolved. Yesterday and today were the first times I have given it a good run. 
      I decided to hunt a farm house yesterday. I usually think the finds are getting low. Well low and behold I was wrong. Yesterday was good and bad as posted on the coin and relic forum. Today was even better!! same farm plus a kids camp. In two hours at the farm I scored a 2 oz. sinker, a bunch of odd lead, 2 wheat pennies, a girl scout pin from the 60's and two fabulous 1952 and 1957 roosevelt dimes. Around 1:30pm I decided to hit the camp. In another two hours I scored $1.05 in clad (not much) and a very awesome 1810 to 1830's button. inscribed on the back is Treble gilt Standard colour. seems to be a british button. Most of the clad from the 60's and 70's were at 6 to 7 inches deep. this button was around 3''. I did dig a bunch of deep trash always looking for the gold rings. The only thing is the id numbers are a little off, they are a couple of points off, but that was an easy learn. I'm thinking the old coil was bad from day one and today just proved it. I can't wait to hit some more of my sites and see what I missed with the old coil. The MK has yet to let me down and has been a great machine in the short time that I have owned it.

      Hey guys, I've been doing some reading on Mars Lion 7" coils to see how they might compare to NEL or others but coming up a bit dry.
      Saw something about the MARS coils maybe being more sensitive but noisy.  I really like the way the NEL are built, as least externally.  Would be great to see the construction too, can only hope..
      Looking at the Mars Lion, NEL Sharpshooter / CORS Fortune, and maybe the 7 or 9" Nokta Makro concentric for kind of a smaller coil to user in dense areas with an Anfibio.  The primary now is a NEL Hunter 12.5x8.5.  Really "digging" that one, so much so that I got one for my E-Trac and Anfibio both.
      Doesn't have to be for the Anfibio but if anyone has experience with these makes with other units it could be helpful in hearing how they run and any pros/cons.
      Thanks and HH!

      Hey there peops, i have a Nokta Fors CoRe with  13x11web coil ,9x5web coil and a 4x4 coil, and i also have a pinpointer.
      I haven't found any gold with this machine,, but on a test nugget it does register/ give a signal.
      My question i ask is , can i fit other coils to the machine that will be better for finding small nuggets ??
