Any Word On Shipment Of Coiltek 10 X 5 Coils?


Recommended Posts

My 15” came in a bag packed in a box with lots of bubble wrap. Serious Detecting. Sadly it is to heavy for my shoulder and after two hours I have to stop. Old age and arthritis sux. Guess I might be selling it. Sorry you guys got what I would call pitiful service. Anything to make a buck.

While I wait for availability of the 10x5 Coiltek, I decided to make myself feel better by constructing an interim solution.   Good ergonomics, runs quiet and stable, great depth and separation. 

You can just buy it from the NZ Dealer, he ships overseas.   These are what is left from his second batch, I got one from his first batch. https://www.dredgenz.co.nz/product/10x5-equinox-coil/

I think the 10x5 is going to be worth the wait, so hang in there relicmeister.  Hopefully, I'll have a few hundred swings with it under my belt come this time next week and I can report on it.

 That’s the only trouble with a big coil but what I do is run it just as near to your feet as can.

 Even when I was young starting out detecting I went with a small coil. Then I could hunt all day and day after day yet never get tired.

 The trouble now is all my youth went south and I don’t mean South America.

 The Best To You and never give up are give in.

Carolina, how about a detector support strap and as Ridge Runner suggested?

Thanks but I feel being tethered to the machine uncomfortable as well. As age crept up on me my CTX became an issue so I bought a set up for it. After awhile that became bothersome so I put the CTX down as well. I probably should sell it as well. Thanks for all the tips though.

Thanks Chuck but this is more of a balance issue. I have no issues with a 18” coil on my straight stick behind the shoulder Excalibur or even my new Impusle  with a 12 1/2” coil as they are well balanced. Yes running the coil close to your feet helps. I think that using a slightly more expensive lightweight potting material and or daming off the coil spokes or supports would have been nice. Thanks again for your input.

Good ergonomics, runs quiet and stable, great depth and separation.  Almost like it was designed in cooperation with the Equinox for optimal operation.

I haven't heard of anyone receiving their preorder in a while. The seller that I preodered from in February recently sent a notice that they expected to see orders to begin arriving in June.

I have a 5" x 10" on order for many weeks... have not heard of anyone getting one lately.   Thought I'd gotten one last month from "Serious", and put it in my cart and paid  for it, only to have the order cancelled.   Too many buyers and not enough coils.

      Would like some help please on a specific coil for my TDI Pro,i have the option of buying this brand new Coiltek 6'' Mono coil which was of course specifically designed for the GPX range of detector,the GPX Mono coils do work very well on my TDI Pro as i own and use most of them on the TDI.
      Has anyone specifically used this small 6'' Mono coil i am looking at using it most of the time because i am using smaller coils more and more due to the problems that i am hving with a broken wrist that i had from a bike accident decades ago,does anyone have any thoughts on this combination please.

      Spending a few days at the beach and managed to get out for a few hours to bond with my Coiltek Nox 10x5 coil (really 9.5 x 5).  Only have had a chance to hunt two or three times with it.  Have now had a couple 2 to 3 hour runs with it.  Once in a park and now this beach run.  Though no spectacular finds with it so far, it is hitting keeper targets well with decent depth/sensitivity, ID stability, and it pinpoints well.  Love the light weight coupled with the tight swing ability and OK swing coverage.  I will probably be selling my 6" round because it no longer serves a purpose for me.  This coil combined with my Zlobrik telescoping CF shaft forms the basis for my tote anywhere light weight Equinox kit.
      I'm relic hunter, not a proficient beach hunter, and knowingly did not optimize my probability of success (went out with rising tide, light beach day, hunted primarily the towel line, went with a low[er] coverage coil etc.) because of time restrictions - had other family activities planned.  Anyway, nothing spectacular. Plenty of clad, some junk rings and the only thing of perhaps relative value, what appears to be a silver, engraved Toyota key fob or medallion. Weird item, but definitely silver backed and heavy at .8 oz.  Trash ratio was pretty good, only fooled in a couple of junk items like the washer, vape, the screw top (natch), a pull tab that rang up a solid 13, the drywall anchor insert, a disposable contact lens foil pak, a freshness seal (great solid 7 target ID but the tone is light vs. a ring)   and the rusty tent stake that was falsing off the bend. That silver medallion fooled me too as I thought it was just another clad quarter (hadn't noticed the VDI above 35) and the junk rings sound great too. The other items were iffy probable junk that I dug just to confirm suspicions.  Used Beach 1 primarily, though I could have gotten away with just about any other mode because I did relatively little wet/saturated sand swinging (high surf line was really sanded in with minimal cuts and steep slope).  The key on the bottlecaps was running iron bias F2 at max 9.  They were unmistakable after that.
      Anyway.  I had fun and like my light weight Nox setup.

      I documented a recent 3-hour beach run in this post.  It focused on my thoughts on the 10x5 coil.  Bottom line: I like it.  I covered mainly the dry sand towel line, got into one pocket spill and found a silver engraved medallion or key fob from a local car dealership.  I did well to avoid trash and relied on high F2 iron bias to eliminate bottlecaps.   Today I managed to hit the tide line and to literally get my feet wet with the Nox 10x5 in the wet sand and surf wash.   What struck me was the stability of the coil in the wash in Beach 1 at the relatively high sensitivity setting of 23.  The other eye opener was the sensitivity to micro targets under those conditions at up to 6-inches in saturated sand and moving salt water.  Again nothing spectacular, a very tiny brass rosary centerpiece displaying a miniature "Our Lady of Guadalupe" relief image, two tiny pendants or charms of unknown composition a pineapple charm, and a small decorative loop that broke in my pouch (it was heavily corroded), a small portion of stainless chain, and a couple coins.  I struck silver again on the return trip through the towel line with a freshly dropped silver and turquoise watch with SS back and band (primarily an eyeball find after it blasted my headphones on the coil sweep and yes, the time was set accurately and ticking away just fine, lol).  Trash was similar to yesterday (you can see it in the bag in the background) with some tiny falsing ferrous wire and nails that were too iffy not to scoop. Some bottlecaps just to periodically confirm the ID (even with full IB, you can get a 10 to 15 ID chirp off the edge but it is dominated by a ferrous grunt).  Couple of pristine "13er" pull tabs, freshness seal, and misc small aluminum bits.  An aluminum liquor bottle neck wrap light green object). Overall, a lot fewer targets overall but attrubute that to half the run being in the tide line/surf wash during rising tide (again tge timing didn't work out for me to hunt while following the tide out).
      All in all, another enjoyable 3-hour run with this coil.  I could swing this coil all day long.   Love it's stability, sensitivity, depth, separation, coverage, and, of course, it's weight.  Shame Coiltek felt the need to weigh down it's bigger brother elliptical to favor water hunting over terrestrial use, otherwise I would be considering that coil as well based on the 10x5 performance.  Equinox finally has a winner smaller coil with adequate swing coverage now.

      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?
