I recon that would be a killer coil in the wide open spaces of WA :ohmy:

Still got a soft spot for DD coils in difficult ground. Doesn't mention winding configuration. Flat wound?

I am aware that this coil is a DD and mainly aimed for the GPX range of machines,but could be interesting too find out if it would also run on the TDI Pro range of detectors,gut feeling tells me it would.

It would probably run on the TDI but would not be optimized for it. Coiltek does makes a line of coils specifically for the TDI. http://www.coiltek.com.au/coils/whites-tdi/

Steve,you are probably right about that new 22'' coil,what i will say is that the Coiltek 14x9 mono coil that i have that was specifically made for the GPX/GP range does work a treat on my TDI Pro,been using it instead of the 12'' DF coil and never regretted getting it,its a pure joy too use for my site situations which are mainly farm land and deep artifact/hoard hunting.

You are of course correct Rick - many coils made for the Minelabs run great on the TDI. The problem is others do not, and if you buy one and it does not you really can’t complain. A lot of my commentary is aimed more at the general audience than a specific response to a post so I thought it was important to note that the coil may very well run great in a TDI, but people are kind of on their own if they wish to find out.

Thanks for posting this Steve... Its always a nervous time for me when we release a new coil and I am eager to hear some results from the field. we have had this one in the field for a few months and it has been proven to find some deep treasure in Pakistan and the Middle East.

My gut feeling is that it will be great for open fields in the US and UK for treasure too but of course the bigger the coil the more noise it can bring in too!

In regards to the TDI, not sure if they run as well with our DD coils as the MONO coils and our new range of TDI coils have slightly different specs now to match even better plus they are a flat wound mono so even better!

Here is a few pictures of the guys in Pakistan searching for their ancient treasure! Its great to see what they find as it is from any part of the globe!

Any thoughts on this coil re gold hunting? Been out for a while. Is it flat wound? Don't really see anyone mention using one. I liked my 24" dd but it was heavy. Picked up the 22" dd and noticed it was so much lighter. Would like to buy another dd but unsure what to get. Also looking at the commander 18" dd or anything else anyone may recommend.

      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?

      Hi all,
      I've done up a video comparing some of the new coils.
      I'm an agent for Detech coils, but tried to be as unbiased as possible.
      Be interesting to hear your thoughts on the results.

      Just curious how it does on depth and sensitivity. Has anyone tested the Elite with some specimen type gold that the GPX misses but the 7000 screams on? Is anyone even running one over here? Most of the comments I see are in Australia. NF looks to also be coming out with a similar coil. I'm just curious how much and what sorts of improvements they give.

      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

      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?
