How is it at pinpointing in pinpointing mode?  
 

Do you use wiggle method?   And if so, is center of coil best or at edges were the two Ds intersect?


Thanks for your insights and nice find. It will be interesting to see how much depth is given up over the 11” or sensitivity and unmasking over the 6” and if it proves to be a good all rounder coil. I feel a coil this size could potentially be more versatile as a stock coil on something like the Equinox or Simplex and still provide good results for most.  And perhaps a little lighter making a better balanced detector out of the box : )

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

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 certai

I almost always wiggle off the target unless its a deeper target and them I'll use the pin point to verify the location is where it's supposed to be.

Another silver, a ring and a few wheaties but nothing deep. Somebody else had hunted the old church not long ago as we could see where they had dug. It was nice of them to leave us a few coins. My buddy got a buff and V nickels with a wheatie. He started with the 11" but put his 6" on after a bit. There was lots of iron.

Few more finds today with the 5x10. The buffalo was the deepest...didn't measure it but it was down there. I dug out two nails from the same hole before I got the nickel...was just about to give up but the pin pointer said something a little deeper and there is was. Getting a little more confidence in its ability to sort and still get respectable depth.

Very nice Tom!!  That military button looks to be in great shape!  With a V and a War nickel to boot!  ~Tim.

Glad to see that 10x5 has an affinity for deep nickels, Tom.  Great saves and like that WW2/Post WW2 Army collar insignia.

      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.
