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.

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.
