The New Coils For The 2300

Recommended Posts

I saw the prototype of the first coil that will be released for the 2300.  10x5"  The tester really likes it and apparently it is dynamite on the jagged bits.   And the main  thing I wanted in these new coils, it is centre mount .  I will probably start using my 2300 a bit more :smile:

I wondered if this was the new coil for the sdc being tested, but it sounds more like a gpx is being used.

Okay, I can’t be the only one who sees the elephant in the room here...?

Hey Lunk.   Sorry mate, I have no clue what you are talking about here.  Are you saying I didn`t see the prototype coil?

Oh goody....a 10x5 coil. Sweet.:wub: Where do I stand in line? Just need a smaller coil for the Zed now.

hey JW.   I don`t think I need a smaller coil than the 14" for the 7000. I got all these pieces with the 14" coil. But the 2300 with greater ground coverage plus centre mount. I gotta have that coil :smile::smile::smile: cheers Dave

Hi Dave, I know what you mean about not needing a smaller coil for the Zed than the 14 as it finds small gold in it own right. But I would like a smaller coil more for places I know there is gold but I just can't get that 14" coil into. Cheers

Yeah exactly. Also for me, small coil equals less EMI, equals greater sensitivity levels and/or less Smoothing required

Minelab or aftermarket? If not Minelab, what about warranty? I know the coil can be replaced but it sure is not designed for that to be a user option. Will taking the detector apart and replacing the Minelab coil with an aftermarket coil affect the warranty?

      So this Saturday im heading back out to the property that produced 4 nuggets with the GPX 4800 last time, using the 11 inch coiltec elite.  
      The area we will be focusing on has mainly been known for producing larger nuggets in excess of 5 grams.  My question is, is there any advantage to use the 11 inch coil vs the 15x12.  
      The 15x12 obviously gets more ground coverage but  would think the two would be about equal on depth to larger nuggets.  The 15x12 is probably less responsive to smaller nuggets compared to the 11 inch.  
      Which would you use on ground that was just clear cut with targets that will generally be on the order of 5 grams or larger?  
       
      Thanks for the help

      Anyone have any ideas why an SDC2300  may not be powering up??
      We have used 2 different sets of batteries that work fine in another unit.
      Not much to troubleshoot except the batteries and off/on switch.        {{{SOLVED}}}}}}}
      Was working fine when it was last used. 
      Hate to send it to Minelab---they may be tiring of me….. 😏

      So I have had two very experienced older prospectors tell me that they don't like the 2300 because the threshold warbles. In other words it is not stable. It does not really matter which setting you use it still has a slight warble to it. Since I am new to prospecting I just kinda figured this was normal for the Minelab PI's They tell me that their 4500 and 5000 have a nice stable threshold which allows them to hear the faint signal's better. Therefore they don't have to use as much gray matter trying to figure out a target.  I have sometimes wondered  if I am missing small pieces of gold because of this. But then again I have found some very small pieces with the 2300. So my question is....is this normal for the SDC 2300 or is something wrong with both of my machines?   I'm guessing normal.  A few nuggets found during the last couple weeks. Biggest is .52 grams

      I just got a screaming deal on a SDC 2300. So just inquiring if anyone has any more experiences with the aftermarket coiltek coils? I'm seriously thinking about getting some to make the SDC a patch hunting machine. 
    • By garikfox
      I was wondering if the aftermarket coils were that much better than the Minelab, i.e Coiltek.
      I'm very hesitant to go Coiltek because the GPX was designed to use only Minelab coils?
      My fear is i don't want to hurt my GPX 5000 in the long term by putting a coil on it that Minelab doesn't like?
      It seems like everyone with a GPX is using a aftermarket coil. I especially like the Coiltek 9" Elite
      I'f you were me would you get a Coiltek coil?

      Maybe something to think about. Bearing in mind I am probably going to get these new coils for the 23 and 7 myself, people should at least consider, a lot of people are saying something along the lines of "my detector is out of warranty anyway, so I`m not risking anything fitting these new coils", but, it is Minelabs policy to not repair any modified Minelab detector.    I daresay that if you were to send a out of warrenty 2300 or 7000 back to Minelab for repair and Minelab saw you were running a unsanctioned coil, they wont repair the detector.    You could end up with a 4K or 10K detector that all it`s good for is to fill it with concrete and use it as a anchor.
      Like I said, I am probably going to get the coils myself, but I will be doing it with the idea that if either detector fails I will probably have to throw it away, and that`s on me and no one else.
      I have no reason to suspect the coils are going to cause any damage and I wish Coiltek and davsgold nothing but success with these new coils.
