16" Nuggetfinder Avantage Coil

Recommended Posts

Just wondering has anyone used a 16" round advantage mono coil as of lately and if so what did you think of it? I know many of you have upgraded to the zed, and most of the talk lately has been on the zed but there's still some of us with the gpx. Been silencing my old patches of trash and gold and been thinking of a new coil to get to hit the old patches and hopefully squeeze some nuggets deeper out of range of my Orange 15" Coiltek mono. I am thinking a 16" - to a possible 18" advantage coil max for the areas I hunt.

I firmly believe the Nuggetfinder 16 round is the best coil anywhere. I tested it against the Commander 18 and found the NF better. I think coils can get too big and lose depth and just get coverage.  I bought a couple Coilteks and sold them right away. Take into account my type of soils vs Australian soil. Probably not as mineralized.

I had the 20 " at one time, thankfully I found enough gold to pay for it and than sold it as it was way too large for most of my hunting grounds . I Am thinking the 16" will be as big as I need with enough punch. May just go for it and give it a whirl and see what comes of it...goldwise.

That 16 NF with the GPX is the best combo going if you have some open ground that does not require elliptical. I tried the 14 round and dumped it in favor of the 16

Still the main coil I use on the 5000.

 I use it on purpose when pushing to try and leave some tiddlers for the dryblower, bloody thing does a good job of stealing it all still!

Have you tried/used the 17x11 advantage? I found that to be a great coil on my 4500.

JW,

I have that coil...nice coil but I am finding that I like the round mono coils better do to the fact it just responds better to deeper targets than elliptical. I need a deep punching coil as I have the smaller coils covered...been trying to get the new Detech 15  superdeep coil but it's not  in the U,.S, as of yet. Think Australia has them...but again a 15 compared to a 16 or 18 " coil ...I am thinking 16- 18 coil will get the punch advantage.

      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?

      New toy arrived today.  I’m having the weekend off so will take out to the yank at his remote camp on Monday for a try out.  Have found bits up to 15oz at nearly 1m deep in this spot.

      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.
      From the nugget finder website https://www.nuggetfinder.com.au/products
