My experience was different than yours, my x coil outperformed it and that’s why I’m selling it. Seems no one wants them in Australia I haven’t got any enquires about it. 

Looks like nobody wants the 17x14" X Coil you're selling either?

I'd still give it a week or so yet before declaring nobody wants them but I'd be surprised if one or both don't sell soon?

Some photos to show condition etc. would probably help?

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

Rob, you might have missed all the lengthy discussions on this topic on this forum when X Coils first came out. But X Coils did want to make plug in Minelab approved coils (and I think they still do),

Hey Dave and Phrunt,   I appreciate your comments.  However, my business ethics over the years don't have to be explained, I think all my customers would say I have been upfront, honest and gave

Yeah I have photos of the z search on gumtree. The x coil I’m not fussed if I sell it. I mostly use the 10 inch now. JP it’s not faulty the area has bad emi the minelab struggles to.

It has to be because what you are saying is completely at odds with what mine and many others experiences. I’d send it back to at least get it checked.

Hey Guys,

   My experience was different than yours, my x coil outperformed it and that’s why I’m selling it. Seems no one wants them in Australia I haven’t got any enquires about it. 

MC30 - I find this hard to believe, customers from Australia are calling here and looking for them, as they are out of stock in locations in Australia.  This would only make me think they are selling very well and customers are trying to get them from different regions to supply the demand for them.  

I would have NF check out the coil you have, I think it could be faulty from what you're saying about it.

      Here are a couple things I've run into detecting lately that I figured I could share here for some motivation!
      This first one comes from a patch where the trash is elusive and the hot rocks are warm at the worst.

      This one gram specimen is the first specimen I've ever found at this location. I found it detecting a small gully on a big hill sitting near the top of a cut bank about 2 feet above the surface of the bed of the gully. It was the first gold find on that particular outing and in an area near my main patch which I hadn't yet found gold, let alone detected much at all.
      What's more special about this little guy is that all I had found up to that point detecting new areas was trash (bullets and bits of steel). When I started detecting this gully, all was silent for about 20 minutes until I swung my coil over something that screamed really loud and sharp. After I moved it in one boot scrape into the gully, I knew it was going to be a .22 shell or some nice chunk of a bullet. But I gotta recover it right!? Whether it's just to remove the trash to clean the area up or to find out for sure if it's trash. Well, these finds are the most satisfying type! KNOWING I found trash and then somewhere along with all the nudging around I somehow managed to perform some alchemy and it turned the bullet into a nice little chunk of gold! So dig it all!!!
      Bringing me right into my next reality checker find! Back to a very old patch where there is a lot of old diggings, trash, and black hot-HOT rocks!

      Here I am on this trip, 13 hours of detecting, 0g of gold, 10oz of steel/aluminum/brass, and 50kg of HOT iron nodules kicked and/or tossed behind me until finally, I get back onto some gold missed by who knows how many enterprising prospectors. Now it's about enough to drive me mad and hopeless with that much skunk! Is my detector working? Yes, remember all the small bits of steel found at depth and how well the detector responds to air tests today. Is all the gold gone? No, you're still digging targets no one else has bothered with in old placer diggings that you've found gold in before. Should I stop digging at signals when I can see a hot rock sitting on the surface under my coil? No, what if it's masking a nugget!
      Well, it happened! I moved one of those hot rocks, still a signal... Another hot rock! I'll move it... Still a signal. Another hot rock!? ...finally 8 inches deeper into the hot rock hole and I'm dealing with a steady signal, no visible hot rocks, and not much hope. But out pops a little smooshed nugget! PERSISTENCE!!! 
      Excitement, energy, and conversely, fatigue all culminating in this moment, I must still stick to SOP. Recheck the hole. STILL another steady signal. No way... YUP! Another gold find, same hole! I ask myself, "Can this hole go for three?" The hole responds with... well it doesn't respond... But if I wouldn't have moved those hot rocks, I would have never heard those little nuggets hanging out beneath them! And if I wouldn't have rechecked my hole, I would have left one behind. Could you imagine how it would have made that nugget feel, being unearthed for the first time in it's life and being left behind all alone! Stripped away from it's partner that got taken... Coulda been a shame. BUT IT WASN'T!
      Anyways! I'm looking at ~50 fun hours on my 14x9 Evo and I'm very happy with it! So here's a little Evo motto pic with about 3dwt of gold for everyone to enjoy!

      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?

      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.
