I Really Like First Texas Product's Coil Selections

Recommended Posts

I may have said this before but I'll say it again. I really like First Texas Product's coil selection. They have one of the best, if not the best, OEM coil offerings on the market today.

7.6 and 7.8 kHz concentric coil offerings include the:

- 4" round concentric
- 7" round concentric
- 8" round concentric
- 9" triangulated concentric
- 10" elliptical concentric
- 11" triangulated concentric

7.6 and 7.8 kHz & 19 kHz DD coil offerings include the:

- 5" DD
- 5.5"x10" DD
- 11" Biaxial DD

13" kHz concentric offerings are:

- 3"x6" elliptical concentric
- 10" elliptical concentric.

13" kHz DD offerings are:

- 5" DD
- 5.5"x10" DD
- 11" Biaxial DD
- 15" round DD.

These are just the OEM offerings. This doesn't include the myriad aftermarket coil manufacturers.

I say kudos to First Texas Products for giving us so many coil options to help us be more successful in our detecting pursuits.

If I could just get a 4" x 18" DD coil out of them for sports fields I'd be a truly happy 1st Texas treasure hunter.

I agree Mike - nothing like a great coil selection to back a great lineup of detectors.

      I will be talking about as I use and test.
      I will be comparing to Etrac wearing  6”coil, Deus wearing elliptical Hf coil and Nokta Impact wearing  4x7” elliptical coil.
      Will compare to stock Equinox 11” coil too.

      Lately, I've been experiencing the coil overload problem. Its hard to say whats causing it but it happens often. Probably not the best thing to do but I tend to slightly lean on the detector as I'm digging a target with the coil firmly against the ground. I've done this for a while with no problems before. It only shows the overload signal or shuts down when the coil is pressed against the ground. I've noticed it happens when using different coils as well. The only thing that has changed recently is the settings I use. I often have the rx gain flat out at 15 (gpx 4500) and other setting quite high also. Is it possible that the more extreme settings (when the coil is in contact with the ground) are the cause or is likely a problem with the machine?

      I have a Garrett ATX and have done some nugget detecting with it. See Gold Nugget Detecting with the Garrett ATX. However, the weight and the stock coil had me wishing for options. I wanted a smaller coil with no openings to hang up that could get into tighter locations. As a past Infinium owner the 10" x 5" DD coil immediately came to mind. See Detecting with the Garrett Infinium in Hawaii and the first picture will tell you what was going through my mind as I hunted gold nuggets.
      So I have some Garrett Infinium coils I am trying on the ATX. The full story and photos are at my new Garrett ATX Accessory page. I will be updating it as I experiment more with the concept. An obvious alternative would be to make an adapter to mate a standard lower rod assembly to the ATX (it has already been done for the Recon) but I wanted to go hip mount for the least weight on my arm possible.
      I want to note here I am advocating nothing and recommending nothing. This is just something I am doing that may answer some questions for some people. If nothing else it will save somebody else making a duplicate effort or wasting the time and money on something that may or may not work out. Bottom line is I just have to know for myself so I will find out and report back as I go along. This thread will be the official question and answer thread for the experiment.

      Any one know if the ctx coils interchange with the equinox beside the mounting on the shaft?

      Does anyone here know what the weight is for the new slimmed down D2 coil.  I know the old one was really heavy.  Is the new one much lighter?

      I own both a Garrett Recon and an ATX, can someone remind me what was found to be best 10 x14 Infinium coil to be used on each? 
      I was thinking someone found the Infinium 10 x 14 mono coil was best for Recon
      and Infinium 10 x 14 DD coil best for use on the ATX
      Is this correct or are all interchangable?
