Detech Versus Coiltek Elite Coils


Recommended Posts

Thanks for the reply Sniper, I've heard some good things about the Elite coils and some of the posters from Oz are starting to talk about the big Detect coils on other forums. I don't have a PI yet just trying to get a little info. Would probably only want one large coil if I did get a PI.

I have used Detech coils  and still do, I also use Nuggetfinder coils...I have used coiltek but found them a bit to touch sensitive working around rocks and bushes. My most successful coil in Detech is the Elliptical 15x10 Mono.... I have used the Nuggetfinder Evo coils, and prefer the 12" round over the larger ones. The Evo and I am sure the Elite coils are the same, super hot and react to hot spots, you will dig more ground noise or what appears to be real soft deep targets...reducing gain helps. Reality is.....all the major brands are good coils...I have no allegiance to any of them, as long as they squeeze out gold for me I keep them. Detech makes a good coil, built well, and run stable, and are not bump sensitive. Over the years, all others  now have a slight sensitivity to bumping into rocks and such...the Detech not. Don't get to hung up on which brand..just decide on one and buy it....they will all find you gold if you get the coil over a nugget. Good luck........and Happy Hunting.

Detech's largest flat/spiral wound mono is a 14". There is an 18" round and 18" elliptical in the product line-up but these are both a traditional wound coil. I haven't used both side by side, but I'd say the 18' Elite would have more sensitivity to small gold, but the Detech would likely run quieter in high mineralisation (due to less near-coil sensitivity). 

Detech have a new 15" round coming out which will be interesting to see how it compares to the current 14" Ultra, as well as the 15" Evo which is a brilliant coil.

      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?

      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?🙂
