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.

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!"

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 used mine one time and that wasn't for very long.  It was so heavy at the end of the rod that it almost caused me to hyperextend my arm.  I had to swing it so slow to keep it from whipping that it took away any "coverage" advantage that the size might have given.  When I sold my F75 a few years later, that coil was in "pristine" condition.  The coil connector still had the cardboard protector on it. LOL

The original 15'' was possibly the worst coil that i have ever used,only used it for maybe a few hours and still in pristine condition,once again could not see any advantage depth wise but ground coverage was of course its biggest advantage in theory.

But the killer and massive design flaw for this coil was its humongous weight and for no real advantage,cannot see the logic really about spending time and money redesigning this coil,i found that my NEL Storm and SEF 15x12 coil do exactly what i wanted originally both depth and ground coverage but in a much lighter package.

I highly doubt that i will get the 'newer version boat anchor' for my T2,of course if folks start offloading them again at a cheap price because they are not much better then i may be interested in buying a almost new one for peanuts.

We wait and see and hope this coil does not turn out as bad as the original one,best time to launch this coil would be just after christmas buying a one off price heavy coil is cheaper than a years Gym membership if you are looking for keeping fit 🤣

      I have an F22 with the stock 9” elliptical concentric coil that I like taking out every now and then. Mainly playgrounds and parks. I probably get most things within 6”. I’ve dug some good deeper signals occasionally but most good signals are within that 6” range which is adequate. I do use the iron audio occasionally, tot lots with mulch I did everything above the weed barrier. 
      I’ve been wondering about the Fisher alternative coils like the 4”  concentric for some really trashy areas around shelter.  I’ve also seen come across some posts where folks refer to a 5” DD coil but unclear which one. The F5 and F75 have that option but it is not on the charts as compatible with the F22. I’ve also seen aftermarket 5” DDs and other options.  I figure depth loss should be minimal with better separation.  
      Looking for insight from others that have used alternative coils on these detectors.

      Wow I can't believe I got out yesterday to dig. It seems like work and the stress of things in 2020 took a toll on my detecting experiences for quite a while. I wanted a new coil for the MK and saw a post Kac made about the Nel Superfly, So I said what the heck I'll give it a try. This coil is 6 grams lighter than my 9 inch. I must say this coil is amazing!!! great depth and way better separation. So I went to give it a spin on a site I hunt that has some modern and 18th century history to it. (ball fields and farm fields). I swung for about 5 hours in the 35 degree weather, and found a bunch of coins,(1941 penny, 46 nickle) shot shells, suspender clip, fishing reel, and a fragmented old bell. I wish the bell was whole, because it was about 2'' in dia. The reel perplexes me because of the lack of water in the middle of a 20 acre field. Overall I had a really nice trip out, I was starting to forget how detecting can clear your mind. 
      PS Joe D can you please send some of the Florida warmth up here to PA.

      Hi i have one question . Its possible change coil conector ? ( fits AKA coil to Garrett? )
    • By James Ryan
      I've always wrapped the coil wire around the shaft a few inches up from the coil.  But then I saw in a some people mentioning they run the wire straight up the lower shaft then start coiling the wire above that.  Someone mentioned the reason he does this is because of the magnetic field and possible interference wrapping it shortly above the coil.  I have only been detecting about 7 years and always trying to learn more.  Any advise/suggestions ect. on this would be great and thanks in advance.

      I’ve been dithering on the 15 inch coil for my Noxy 600.... I mostly do beaches here in So Calif..... I’ve been doing ok with the 11 inch that came with, but am not sure if the 15 in her would be an advantage..... what are your thoughts? ? ?

      The Fisher CZ-21 is one of the best VLF underwater detectors on the market and can double as a good dry land detector. Waterproof to 250 feet, it is the real deal when it comes to diving and built like a tank. It is the only serious competition to the Minelab Excalibur with the main difference between the two the basic physical design and control layout. Performance is too close to call. I personally prefer the CZ-21 due to the easy hip mount capability, more distinct tone scheme, and true all metal mode. You can get it in 8" or 10.5" coil sizes but the coil is hardwired so be sure and get what you want. Big coils are better on the beach but if you are also thinking parks and such on dry land the 8" is the better option.
      There is a huge price increase coming that will put what you see it currently for sale at as not too far over the new dealer cost! I literally almost just bought one myself just now but veered away before hitting the buy button because - well, you know it - I have too many detectors already anyway. Still, it is almost an investment at this price as used prices are going to take a big jump also.
      Anyway, just a head's up for forum members in case anyone was on the fence about the CZ-21.
