Fisher F-70 Difference Between Nel & Cors Search Coils?


Recommended Posts

I am 80 and having problems trying to figure out the difference between COR'S coils and Nel coils.Looking at a 9.5" x 5" d.d. coil for my F-70,seems the Nel coils are harder to find ,but the Cor's are easy to find.Rumor says two brothers own both coils companies is this right?🙂

Yes, Cors and Nel are the same company, the US tends to get Cors branded coils, and the rest of the world Nel.  Not sure why they've done that.  Both coil types perform exactly the same and are made at the same factory in Ukraine.  I was buying direct from Nel and I was able to choose Cors branded or Nel branded.

I'm a big fan of Nel/Cors coils but I found the Sharpshooter 9.5x5.5 to be no better than the Fisher 10x5", in fact I found the Fisher coil to be better. 

While my experience is with the Fisher Gold Bug Pro rather than the F75, I don't know if there would be much of a difference.  It's very unlike me not to recommend a Nel over a stock coil, but in this case I think it's probably a good move to go stock.  The Fisher coil was more sensitive (to small gold), both had similar if not the same depth on coins and I preferred the solid design of the Fisher, neither perform noticeably better than the other in EMI either.  In a coin hunting scenario where needing the hotter tip of the Fisher coil isn't as necessary as gold prospecting it probably doesn't matter so I'd just buy which ever was cheapest.  As for build quality, I'd likely give that to the Nel... the Fisher ears scare me being thin but so far I've had no problems, they just look like they'd break easily.  The Nel is just tough.

I have the NELS 9.5X5 Sharpshooter for my Fisher F5 and it is excellent.

IMO this second point is the clincher in dry land detecting.  In water, open coils tend to be better.  Mars makes a similar size open DD coil which is also excellent but trying to distinguish performance between the three may be an impossible task.

Both NEL and CORS can be found in the USA.  Something I read is that NEL granted exclusive sales rights to one or a few companies and regretted it later on.  Using the CORS label allowed them to skirt this constraint.  Makes sense but I have no idea as to the veracity of this claim.

      I sold an essentially new 9” hf coil to a guy who tells me after first use that it won’t stay connected to the remote. Does anyone know what the problem could be? He also says it should have come with a charger but I’ve bought several XP coils and they don’t come with a charger. I’m going to suggest he re-enter the coil serial number and give the coil a full charge. Coil was perfect for me.

      I have been detecting an old home site. I started out with my ORX and the x35 9" coil it found alot of targets, and then kinda went quite, so i grabbed the Tarsacci, with its 12" coal and the ground let up again , and in the one spot the east yard it to went silent, but what gagged me was i was digging down 14 inchesand doing what i call a frontabout 3ft wide and just detecting the dirt i was throwing out of the hole and using a magnet to pull out the iron and going over the dirt again but now i was using the Mackro racer with the 5" coil to do this and it was pulling out lots of non iron targets this way but what caught me off gard was when i went out side of the hole and just for the heck of it started scanning the surface the other two detectors had gone over , i started getting hits, pulling up more shotgun shells and other non iron targets , so the 5" Racer coil was doing somthing the other two could not do . it was getting in between the metal and at a good 6 "  , this took me back because i figured  no way it would do so well but it did and is ,

      I’m looking for an after market COIL SUPPORT for a COILTEK 10X5 EQUINOX coil…. I just finally bit the bullet and found one…. I’d like to put a coil support on this coil to hopefully not break the tabs too soon on it…. Does anyone know where a coil support for this coil can be obtained ? ? ?………thanks …..Al

      as I already put in another post, I just bought a second-hand gpx 5000.  It comes with the comander 11 DD and 11Mono coils.  I would like if it is possible for a colleague to recommend a coil to complement the ones it brings.  Its use would be to search for coins.  I've been looking at the detech 15 inch DD ultra sensing.  If anyone has used it, what can you tell me about it?

      After reading all items available I am confused.  It's probably just me so I apologize if this is a dumb question.  In soil that has low mineralization which coil will go deeper and is more suitable, a DD coil or a mono coil of equal size?  Or in low mineralization does it not matter if you use a DD or a mono coil?
