Nugget Finder Z Search Coil Release Date 18th December

Conveniently priced below the X Coils, but still very expensive, and too close to the standard coil size for my liking !

Big plus is no adaptor lead.


Unless X Coils become significantly cheaper, there will be no more market share for them, given the benefits that the NF coil will bring.

More is oft times less, so what might work in one ground type will not necessarily work in another. To achieve a universal coil that is acceptable “everywhere” first the coil needs to meet a very high

Every year I find myself buzzing around trying to finish off the year on a high, to lift the gold tally as high as possible before it it gets counted off for the year. This year I came in really stron

Now to see if it will work!  I’m sure I’ll run into someone out in the field for me to give it a couple minutes swinging it!  I’ll save a couple targets for someone out in Rye Patch!

Dec 18th - wasn't that the same date Minelab requested the GPX 6000 documents to be made public on the FCC website originally too and thus the presumed release date of that machine?

If not coincidence then it seems likely this coil was delay might have been related.

"The 12" Round will be the first available size in the Z-Search range." https://www.nuggetfinder.com.au/z-search-coils

Be interesting to see what other sizes/shapes follow.

The 12" won't suit everyone, especially if their stock coil is still working well for them, but for those that need or feel a new coil may be needed (many now out of warranty) it will sell pretty well I reckon.

No adapter lead is a huge plus!

Different sizing options should still keep X Coils a market share if their prices come down? It's a pity they couldn't get the lead chip too for true competition.

The 12 inch ZSearch is definitely more sensitive over standard and has good depth that is on par or slightly better than GPZ14 on nuggets up to 8 grams or so (biggest I found at depth and compared during testing). It really shines in hot variable ground with a lot less saturation signal than the 14, which is impressive because you’d expect a smaller coil to saturate more readily. The Ferrite balance is very good. 

Nuggets a friend got off his old patches last week

OMG! $1300!  I think that I would rather use that money to take a trip to some awesome gold country and then TRY to find enough gold to pay for it 😂.  Looks like I will be at then end of the pack to get one.  I will wait, see what others think, watch some videos, etc...then if I like it, buy a used one for half price. 😂

Agreed, $1300 (Au $ I suppose) is a steep price. I guess our Au friends will have plenty of time to test it in depth and post reviews before it even would become available here in the US. Then we shall see.

      Hello All,
         Had a great time testing the new Nugget Finder "Z Search" Searchcoil today on a wash I haven't hunted in some time.  This small coil for the GPZ 7000 is much lighter, more sensitive and easier to pinpoint small targets with.  I was super impressed with the new coil, wish I had a few dozen in stock.  I also love the fact you don't have to modify anything, just mount and plug in like a stock GPZ coil.  
      I have already had 3 customers burn up their $8000 GPZ 7000 by making some wiring mistakes on adapters for aftermarket coils.  In my opinion, I don't recommend anyone voiding a warranty or sacrificing a $8000 metal detector if you make a mistake.  
      Pictured below are nuggets found today with the new coil here in Arizona.  The coil comes with a lower shaft, mounting hardware and skidplate.

      Hello All,
         Well, here we go all, going to test the new Nugget Finder "Z Search" Searchcoil for the Minelab GPZ 7000 metal detector.  The coil is super light, well built and includes a lower shaft.  This coil will plug right in, no modifications needed.  I will be carrying these coils once they become available from NF.  I don't have a solid MAP price yet and already have a good amount of pre-orders and pre-down payments to hold some of the first ones in the US to be sold to the public.  
      I know this is going to be a solid searchcoil for the GPZ 7000.  I'm super excited to test the new "Z Search" out.  Thanks Nugget Finder!

      Hi everyone.
      I have a Gpx5000, Based your experiences, which coil is the best between the 2 Nuggetfinder 17"x13" coils. The Solid coil or spoked? 
      Thanks in advance for your replies.

      This is a question for anyone in the States or Australia that owns and has had time to give solid, detailed, performance information on NF 25"DD X Coil. I'm interested in knowing coping with the weight since it weighs 4.4 lbs., Stability with ground noise, depth of nuggets you have personally dug using it, not stories you have heard of, have you used it on open hillsides or just on flat ground, size of nuggets you have found with it, what is the smallest you have found with it, does it impress you, how does it do on pinpointing, and any other info you can think of regarding it. And last, do you really really like this coil?
