Bought one yesterday.  Already have my tracking number  so hopefully next week I'll have some info. on performance. At least here in SW Mo. soil. My soil isn't the best or worst so the depths I get are in between the extremes.

Hi all. Just reading the comments and I can assure you that the coils are out and performing well. On sale date was 3rd March.  We are working hard to get orders supplied from around the globe. it’s

Tomorrow!

That's Great Tom!, I'm anxious to hear how it performs for you!  ~Tim.

I received an email saying the coils were in stock so I ordered the 5x10" also. Then I received a phone call saying they only received two and they already went out, so I'm still on the waiting list. Anxious to hear how it works for you.

I came back to the forum to try and find out what the point of these coiltek coils are.

They are more expensive than the actual minelab ones, what is the actual advantage of buying them?

People seem to be promoting these Coiltek coils all over facebook but they don't say why you shouldn't just by one made by Minelab.

Coiltek say they are approved by Minelab, why would they approve these? Won't that cost them money?

The narrow 5" width gets your coil into places the Minelab coils can't get to like between rocks while still giving decent coverage with the 10" length.  Separation and coverage, what more could you ask?

The CoilTek coils fill in the specialized situational capability  gaps between the 3 ML coil offerings.  They are not do it all coils like the ML 11” stock coil, but have specific strengths for certain detecting situations (max depth, separation, coverage, water hunting) because they use coil footprints not offered by the ML accessory coil offerings.

As noted by Tom above: the 5x10 provides similar separation and constrained area swing capability to the ML 6” round but with 10” swing coverage so you don’t have to tiptoe around a site to get overlapping swing coverage like you have to with the 6”.

The 15” round provides potentially maximum depth capability than even the largest ML coil which is limited to only 12” width even though it has 15” length.  The downside to this 15” coil is weight and susceptibility to ground noise in mineralized dirt and potentially less sensitivity to very small targets.

The third CoikTek coil is a heavy weighted elliptical coil designed to give more coverage but less hydrodynamic coil drag than the stock coil when water hunting.

Interesting thanks.

I was looking to get a bigger coil for my Equinox 800 to go deeper on beaches, the 15'' coiltek a good option?

Only have the stock coil at the moment.

The large 15" coil might get you an inch or two additional at the beach over the stock 11" coil and perhaps an inch or so over the Minelab 15x12 inch coil.  This is based on my experience of digging nickels and other non-ferrous targets at up to 15" in wet salt sand with the stock 11" coil in wet sand.  Also, you may lose the ability to sense shallower, smaller jewelry targets because of its size.  IMO, if that is the case, I really don't see that advantage (the additional inch or so, if that is actually the case) worth the huge weight penalty you take on the coil.  It is like adding a 12 oz coke can on top of your existing coil because the 15" weighs a half pound more than even the 15x12 coil.  People are talking about using harness to be able to swing the beast.  If you want to eek out perhaps a tad more depth and increase your swing coverage at the beach in we and dry sand, I would recommend the 15x12 inch coil. 

Also, if you are getting into the water, I recommend sticking with the 11" stock coil because the hydrodynamic coil drag on the larger coils is probably overwhelming.  If you are still interested in this 15" coil, then I would just wait now and see what the user reports say on coil performance on depth and small target sensitivity and on a salt beach (if that is what you mean by beach) since the coil just got into peoples' hands this week and then see if it is even worth it for what you want to do.  HTH.

speculative so far, however coiltek has a good rep. there will be disappointment in the 5x10 coil but should improve in performance after some adjustments by coiltek

      My good friend Larry S was proud to share some recent success using his Equinox 800 and the new 10" Ellip NOX coil.

      Notice how small the one just in front of the CoilTek, pretty amazing.

      Nice to see some of what other people find as some folks think me being a dealer, it's setup.  Those who know me, realize it's real and I would never take credit from a customers success anyway.

      If you want to learn more about the benefits of the new NOX 10" Ellip 10x5" coil, watch this video:
      Time to get out there and get you some.
      Thanks again Larry for sharing your Success.

      I keep checking for anyones results with the 10X5 looking for gold & so far have seen hardly anything! Hoping a dealer or other reviewer would have had time to use the coil for gold prospecting and again, had time to do a write up. I have had success with the 6 " DD on the EQ 800 and am wondering how the Coiltek compares?

      Apparently these kinds of interviews have been occurring for a couple months with various detector experts (and dealers) around the world.  Except for a post buried in a thread (credit to Dances with Doves for calling my attention to these), which I didn't figure would reach the full audience, I think this is the first post of these four episodes with Gerry which were uploaded to YouTube on the 18th & 19th of April.  Basically each of the first three episodes covers the one of the new coils separately and sequentially:  5"x10" (~19 minutes), 9"x14" (~22 minutes), 15" round (~44 minutes) and a wrapup segment (~11 minutes).  I'm posting just the first one as each successive one is linked by Trevor at the end of the previous.  E.g. to see part 2 (9"x14" discussion) just move the video's scroll cursor to the end of part 1.  I watched episodes 1,2, and 4 in their entirety and the first 15 minutes of episode 3.  A lot of the general info is second nature to seasoned detectorists.  But there were a couple tidbits and I like being reminded now and then of the basic principles.

      I am impressed with it. It will my main coil this summer lake hunting.
      I like the razors edge tone when detecting. It is fast as it goes over targets. Depth is very impressive in my mild ground.
      I hate to say but my Anfibio Multi is the backup detector to my Equinox 800. Even with the 5x10 coil.
      I look forward to seeing what Minelab has coming.

      Just wanted to update those still looking for the new NOX 15" round coil by Coiltek.
      I just received a shipment of coils and have them in stock ready to ship.
      My 1st hunt with the 15" round was quite silverish with an 8 silver day.
      Nothing extremely deep (Idaho soils) but most coins were in the 8 to 9" range.  I was able to lift the coil a couple inches off the ground and still get a repeatable signal.
      No it is not leaps of 6" inches on a coin size target, but I would think a buckle or cannon ball would be approx 6" deeper.
      Call Gerry's Detectors at 208-345-8898 to get one on its way to you.

      IMPORTANT UPDATE - Coiltek NOX COILS

      Since we launched the new NOX coils just 4 weeks ago on the 3rd of March 2021, we have received 1000’s of orders for the product, and these orders are continuing to grow each day.  We have never before experience such demand for a Coiltek product.

       We are naturally delighted to have such a positive response to the NOX product and we are grateful for your support. However, due to this unprecedented worldwide demand and the various impacts of COVID-19, deliveries are taking longer than usual.

      Be assured, our worldwide distributors and dealers are doing the best they can and we are keeping in close contact with them. They are being updated regularly on availability and stock quantities.
       
       We at Coiltek have a great production team and we are working around the clock to supply. Our commitment to quality and providing you with the best product possible is and will continue to be at the forefront. 

      Current delays can be up to 6-8 weeks. The best way to purchase a NOX coil is to contact your local Coiltek dealer and place an order.
      Again, thank you for your support and patience, we sincerely apologise for these delays.
      New Coil For Minelab Equinox from Coiltek
