Thanks for the info. 

Can you be more explicit about what you mean by mediocre depth? Is that compared to the 11" coil or the 6" coil?  

Source of information?  Thanks

Everyone makes mistakes.  It's credibility that matters and that means that potentially controversial performance claims that malign a product or state over the top adulation ideally should be posted with as much explicit detail and cited verified/credible/reliable source information as possible.  That's called information reporting/dissemination vs. simply spreading unverifiable rumors on a forum.   That is also different than speculation where people are simply guessing about features or performance of unreleased gear, which is usually just harmless fun because no products are getting trashed in the process (usually).  If you can't back up such claims with at least some evidence, it is best holding off posting until you can.  It protects you from backlash and the party in question from potentially undeserved bad press. If you are simply trying to help those who are mulling over a purchase, that's fine, but without something to corroborate it usually just causes consternation and confusion.

I can be critical over time ... but in my opinion the 5X10 "coil coil doesn't look bad at all in this test .... and played a really good result against the 6" Equinox coil ..

Anonymous second hand reports don’t help much because we know nothing about the original source of the information. When it comes to reporting on metal detectors, the history and reputation of the reporter is the key item. Without that and context, the information is relatively meaningless. Mediocre depth compared to what, at what settings, in what ground, on what targets? Jumpy id? Some people say that about the Equinox no matter what coil is on it.

The bottom line is you have to take all reports with a grain of salt, and anonymous second hand reports.... may as well just ignore them as noise.

Don't worry about it so much.  Gerry was running around with a pre-release version and showing a bunch of great finds and the videos above at least demonstrate that there is no noticeable performance issues.  It's just a situational coil for specific purposes and should be fine for most.  It's the 15" round that requires more investment and it's performance needs to overcome a significant weight penalty.

      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.

       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.
