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?
Here is a recent video of a couple of dudes testing out their massive range of Nugget Finder coils against the GPZ 7000 on targets they've dug into the ground in Western Australia's red dirt. I found it quite an interesting video and shows how close a lot of coils are in performance.
I notice he doesn't appear to scrub the GPZ on the ground as much as the others, not sure the reason for that, maybe he doesn't want to damage such an expensive coil ?
By the time he's got to the GPZ all the ground scrubbing has probably made it a shallower target.

Hi guys I was wondering if anyone out there could tell me what ones best of these two coils I've herd alot of good things about the 12 round nugget finger coil but like the eleptical coils as can get them in places the round won't go and I know the 12x8 is fairly new .but thought I'd ask if anyone has any experiance with it compared to the 12 round ..on depth and sensitivity?
A few months ago when talking to the guys at nugget finder about coil options they hinted at a new small coil coming out soon, here is the news i was waiting for.
Some exciting news for GPX users, a super sensitive coil with good ground coverage in the evolution windings, will be interesting to see its performance especially compare to the new coiltek 9" and also the SDC.
