 I am glad they took Steve's  advice.Also  that  is one cool looking coil.If they make one for the Nox that would be big  hit  for many.I will get one for my AT gold.

Unfortunately, with Minelab controlling coil sales via embedded chips, this is unlikely, a loss for both Minelab and their customers, in my opinion. I’d buy one for my Equinox in a heartbeat. Oh well, can’t have everything, but at least lots of other detector owners will have the option, including the older BBS and FBS owners.

Too bad Coiltek didn't make this 18x4 for the Equinox instead of the 15" round. It would have been another home run like their 10x5".

Hey Coiltek, how 'bout a 15x5" for the Equinox? Could be another superstar for ya.

That’s wonderful news!  I had the Bigfoot coil for a while and used it on Whites MXT and MX5. Fun to use for parks and recent drops. X marked the target, no need for a pin pointer. The SEF WSS 5x10 coil works similar on the Whites just not as long a pattern. Hope they or Minelab can come up with one for the Nox!

Thanks a lot for the news, Steve. Think I'll get one, too, if available. Think it will fit all of my 3 White's.😉👍

Like Prunt I may have to buy a detector to fit the coil...I'm taking it that it will not work on a CTX...I recently bought a big foot for my TDI pro...it's almost un fair to hunt with it...laser pin pointing with the tip of the coil.

Steve,

We have an Explorer SE Pro that we bought used last year that is almost 'new.'  Will this coil work on that?

The Minelab E-TRAC, Safari, Explorer SE Pro, Explorer SE, Explorer II, Quattro MP, Explorer XS, and Explorer S can all employ the same coils.

Ctx seems to be another chipped detector, I can see it in the coil cable which explains it being ignored. I've never seen a company before that people love their product yet are so discontent with it at the same time.

Would it really kill them to let us have access to coils? Just release a firmware for all the detectors disabling the security checks and make your customers happy. 

It's got to the point we are either buying other brand detectors or older models with no chips to get around the problem to use coils like this Detech that supporters of other brands can just use. Even entry level Ace detectors can just throw one on.  It's just crazy.

      Hi. I'm looking for a smaller than the 6x10 DD coil for my White's detectors. Would like to hear how the 7" Ultimate performs depthwise and how target separation is.

      Hey all,
         I was just wondering if anyone else know's anything about these 3 detectors! The flyers where in my new coil boxes! 👍👍

      I am looking at getting an after market coil for the MXT. Has anyone tried one of the Ultimate or SEF coils by Detech on their unit and if so which model and size did you get and how much of an improvement was it compared to the stock coil??

      After a busy week, doing an effort between heavy rain interruptions, I finally finished this work!
      Thanks for all people involved in this project for their knowledge shared...
      Underwater test next week(I hope)

      Hello to all 2 weeks a go i took the plunge and bought the most suitable coil for my needs......its heavier than my other coil but the aim was :
      How deep can i really dig
      And how much ground can i cover
      So i mounted the beast on my carbon shaft after a few rubber washer adjustment i was all set.Tide was good weather was clear but it s dark after 5pm and the beach has mudflats and alone with limited network i won't take risk of getting stranded.Anyway it heavier and after a few adjustment with the SAT ,the gain  and the delay i was all set.
      This coil is blasting targets really hard i pick up the knife at 50cm and dug a real crater ,not many targets except the silver earing and the find of the day a Silver Long cross penny circa ad 1272-1303 nothing really amazing but i could not  find anything old about this area...........
      Next day went back to try the CTX on the right side on the spot and i pick up lots of fishing weights.
      Can wait to try the coil again maybe next Monday

      Been reading a lot about the new Coiltek, Nugget Finder & now Detech coils of late. I haven't had much to do with any of these but have detected a small area immediately after 2 x GPX4500 with the Coiltek Elite 14" mono attached. Although not an exhaustive or scientific test the end result was I got 8 x subgram nuggets from the area with the SDC & the 4500's nothing. 2 of the subgrammers came from adjacent to their scrapings so they knew something was there but was still iffy enough to walk away from. I keep hearing or reading how these coils are transforming GPX's into SDC's or even GPZ's but this short "test", for want of a better word, put some doubts in my mind.
      I've got no doubt that there is improvement in the new coils in how they enhance the target information or audio response of the detector through better windings etc. but I'm not entirely convinced it's as substantial as some make out. My thoughts are it may be about 10% performance improvement  (every bit does help regardless) & 90% of a placebo effect i.e. you buy a new coil excited by the possibilities of it's performance, you regain some enthusiasm & become more positive in approach even detecting more carefully + with more purpose - then when you find gold of course it's the new coil that done it right? 
      Another thing that has me scratching my head is how excited people are about them finding very small gold. My smallest bit with a GPX5000, fine gold & standard 11" Minelab Commander mono coil was 0.03 of gram (I think about 0.46 of a grain) so they have always been capable of doing it even with an unfashionable coil (but still a good one).
      Like I said I'm not doubting that there are definite performance improvements, much like the introduction of litz wire, but I do believe a lot can also be attributed to a refreshed or reinvigorated enthusiasm too. 
      New detectors could also have a very similar affect on us. What do the experts reckon?
