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.

Thanks, I've been waiting for reports on it from a trusted source rather than a random Youtube video.   I've been thinking of getting one for my one of my T2's, one has the Mars Tiger which I'm happy with, the other still only has the stock coil... :wacko:  The other option is just getting a Simplex and a Nel coil and retiring the second older T2 all together.

I like hearing steadier ID numbers! The key factor for me.  I was hoping to get a GPZ coil for Christmas but that doesn't look like it will happen, now I may have to change that wish to a Simplex and Nel coil.

I initially got an 11" Nokta coil but it had some problems and I sent it back. I never heard what was wrong with it so I was hesitant to get another in case there was some bad batch, it could have been an isolated incident but didn't know. My other option was to go slightly bigger to the 13" coil but that happened to be out of stock and they just got a batch of the SuperFly's in so I snagged one. Jeff Mclendon had picked one up for his AT Gold hand had good comments about it.

Compared to other Nel coils the SF is thinner and lighter and is still very sturdy. I do like how well the target can pp off the center. I took it to a spot I had picked up quite a few civ war era coins and artifacts that has been heavily pounded by many people in the area and it did really well with separation so I was able to pick out a bunch of clad nickels, a dime and few copper pennies. Nothing to really brag about in terms of finds other than many consider the place picked clean. There are nearby power lines that made the 7x11 a little fluttery and this doesn't seem to be a major issue with this coil. I have some really grueling spots that suffer major power lines and some nice thick bog iron I can swing it through but have to play off the tides. Will try to hit the beach with it this weekend too.

Anyways it's a safe buy nice performer.

Ken, I am really glad the Nel Super Fly is helping to stabilize your Multi Kruzer. The MK really is an outstanding detector even when it is handicapped with the stock coil. 

Simon, the Simplex with a Nel coil and carbon fiber lower shaft sounds like a great way to celebrate Christmas.

I am all over the Nel Super Fly that is on my Garrett AT Gold. The whole setup is still a little heavy but the Super Fly weighs less and detects way better than the Garrett 8.5"X11" coil with very steady numbers and excellent target separation. It's a keeper.

I wonder why these aftermarket coil manufacturers always seem to make better coils than the genuine article.   Thanks for all the information on it.  Sounds great.

That would be a great topic Simon. I would sure like to know the answer.

By the way, the Nel Super Fly I purchased for my AT Gold says AT Gold right on the coil and not just on some dinky peel off label either. It does not say AT Series, Pro or Max.

Probably because NEL has spent more time on the coil design and testing than the genuine manufacturer...

Maybe they fine tune the coil to the particular machine and not necessrily for the whole line? To me that would explain why they would work better than a stock coil. Also stock coils seem to be for general hunting for the particular machine in many cases and when we buy a 3rd party coil the size is chosen more for our particular needs. Do have to say that having the Nel Big and now the Superfly I see how Nel has progressed in their designs.

Got a couple more hours in on the MK with the SF this afternoon. Not much to brag about but considering how this place has bee picked through I am impressed. Most of these targets are mixed in and below iron bits so the separation on the SF is pretty impressive. Used 3 tone, 14khz with gain at 95. If I tried that with the stock 7x11 it doesn't have the depth on many of these and would be too sparky to hear anything. Perhaps the 7x11 is just too sensitive never the less the sf seems to have a better balance on depth and detection sensivity and proving to be a nice relic coil for me.

Old button and a musket ball is still better than a pull tab, I'm happy :)

I hit that area and will again because it is tough hunting. I found quite a few late 1700's-mid 1800's coins in that area despite all the competition. I haven't found any $1 or $5 gold coins but suspect there has to be some there. Good news is they fall in the foil and aluminum range so that should keep others discouraged enough to leave them for me :)

      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?

      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?

      So I have the Green headphones and have them currently paired to the Multi Kruzer but it seem that if I pair the pin pointer to the same headphones then the headphones won't be paired to the detector? Either or and not both? If that is the case it is kind of a bummer but not that big a deal. Audio on it isn't super loud with the waterproof cover on.

      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?
