My First Run With The Coiltek 14×9 On My Equinox 800


Recommended Posts

Hope y'all doing great! Guys, I'm on my way to bed and catch some sleep... So i copied the text from my original post.

Hey wassup guys!😀 Hope y'all doing great!🙏 Here it is, yesterday's result with my brand new Coiltek coil for the Minelab Equinox! (14x9) Before anything else, let me say that i could had found way more stuff (another patch at around 500m away from where I've been yesterday), but i was determined to try this coil on a area where i have searched many times before. (I have some old footage here, it's same area where i used my GPX 5000 with the 14" DD Goldstalker), and no, I'm not saying that the Equinox is better than the GPX 5000! 2 different worlds! I simply didn't walk over these with the Gpx 5000. The GPX will not produce any signal coming from mineralized pottery. ( I have to say this because my post will be shared on some other groups ) Most of these Medieval coins didn't have a solid ID, because they were either deep or amongst mineralized pottery fragments... mostly +30cm deep. Had one on edge at around 23cm if i remember correctly... The only coins that i had a solid ID were: Little silver hammered coin at +-20cm that was surrounded by few bits of iron (when it locked, i had a ID 13-14), and that little hammered coin with a short cross (while heading back home i came across a ID 4). I also took the Minelab's 15" Coil with me to compare some signals, it seemed like there was little to no difference regarding depth (to me that's a good thing) but, i noticed a much greater separation on the Coiltek 14x9! The thing is, some coins were amongst mineralized pottery fragments (produces negative signals/ID ), so the 14x9 could separate better, therefore i would get a much better response.👍 I'm guessing this coil will work excellent at the beach. This time i had to include some of the trash that i found... all those little bits that you see on the right side!😀 Excellent sensitivity!!!!!!😀👌 Another 2 things that i really need to mention... It's a heavy coil, so if you are a skinny person, well, use a bungee or a harness. I didn't need to use my bungee, but at the end of the day i was knackered!😂 Do i mind? Definitely not, as long it does the job, that's what matters. 👍 I've noticed that some people are worried about the coil ears... Well, i don't think you should worry about that... although this is a new coil for the Minelab Equinox, these coils have been around for several years on some other Minelab detectors!😉 Ctx 3030, Etrac, Safari and the list goes on... I'm very pleased with my coil!😀👌 I even bought a nice red dress for my "Coilteka"😂 a protection called Flexbump (made of PETG) that absorbs any impact against rocks at the forest and beach! EDIT I was using mainly the Field 2. 0 F3 & F2. 6 Recovery Speed. I did use a little bit the Field 1 and Beach 1, but i was having a better result using the Field 2 on that area. Thank you Trevor Coiltek and Coiltek Team for this amazing coil!👍😎 Best regards!

You "Euros" have such great history to find. 🙂 That's quite a haul! Guess that coil is quite a beast. Congratulations!

Those are some really great pictures of your finds.  The story isn’t bad either..

   Thanks for the test drive report! And what an awesome group of finds!

   I have seen several people state on the forum that this particular coil is heavier due to it being made more for water hunting! But I'm sure Coiltek, and others, have the ability to use lighter resin fillings, as they become available!👍👍

Good looking coil to go with all those finds! I find the slightly narrower coils can do better in bad ground than the wider coils.

Someone told me exactly the same! The 15 round is lighter...

      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.
