Coiltek Nox 15" Round Coils In Stock And How Did The 1st Hunt Come Out? 8 Silvers Baby


Recommended Posts


Great hunt with a 15” coil in the turf!! 👍🏼 Years ago in my area, that output would be my norm on a given hunt, along with 30-40 wheat pennies.  I never used a 15” coil for turf hunting in my neck of the woods, but I had a 13” coil I used for a couple of years on my Explorer SE that performed beautifully in the high trash parks I typically hunt.

Great finds in my book any day, but lets be honest here.

I only counted 7 silvers and 1 nickel which is not silver, so where is the other silver coin.

you know I am just kidding of course because the color can fool some people.

Be calling you soon.

Can't tell if you were just busting Gerry's chops, but the nickel IS silver - a 1945 War Nickel from the pic. 

Nice finds Gerry.  Probably more a function of the site than the coil, but it shows the coil has what it takes to get the job done. I figure the 15" is going to give you probably on the order of 2" additional depth under good soil conditions for coin sized targets.

I was surprised at the decent depth I was getting in sandy, mild soil with the 10x5. No spectacular finds but recovered coins and buttons as deep as 7 to 8" , which is not too shabby for a coil that is an inch narrower than the 6" round.  So I get as good or slightly better depth than the 6" and similar separation, with decent swing coverage.  Happy with my Coiltek so far.

Nice Gerry,  I haven't had that kind of success with my 15" yet - but that is about me... and not the coil.  Looking forward to giving it mine a good workout on some fertile soil.  Though, I don't expect to have a day like you did... awesome collection of silver!  

I'm also looking forward to getting my  10x5 when they are available, especially reading Chase's notes above.  ~Tim.

Good looking pile of silver !

Guess there will be some ML coils gathering dust now..... 

Doubt it will be too dramatic a transition.  IMO the 15" is a tad too heavy for what it brings to the table as an every day coil (might be good for water hunters, though, or max depth power coil in mild soil).  Great haul by Gerry, but the 11" and 12x15" ML coils would have likely gotten those coins also - Gerry got onto a hot spot as best as I can tell.  The 10x5 will probably steal away a lot of 6" round coil fans because it has more utility with its decent swing coverage without giving up much in terms of separation and weight vs. the 6" round.  So yeah some 6" coils will be looking for new homes.  But overall, the Coiltek coils simply fill some situational gaps left open by the limited choice of ML accessory coils rather than outright replacing them.

Thank you for correcting me as I did not know that.

To be honest, VL, I didn’t notice it was a nickel until you pointed it out so that made me take a closer look to verify it was a war nickel.

   I thing Gerry's skills are the "magic silver sauce"! Not the coil! But good to see, just the same!!👍👍

      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?
