Nugget Finder 12 X 8 Evolution Coil For GPX In August 2018

Recommended Posts

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

Awesome, I will be getting one! 

They were previously saying 14x9 was the smallest size flat wound coil they could make, I guess they've found a way.

 ? I thought you would be all over that,

I had been asking them if they had plans to do a replacement for the sadie in the EVO windings and they had mentioned that they had a new coil coming that was performing excellently and was smaller than what was currently available in the flat/evo windings so i knew it would just be a matter of times, the sadie will still be good for getting in the really tight spots but the 12 x 8 will cover so much more ground whilst still be maneuverable in vegetation and rough ground.

with the performance of the 14 x 9 on small gold I am super keen to see what the 12 x 8 can do.

video on one in action

They'll be in stock in NZ in 4 weeks! 

This guy knows how to beat a coil around, chopping down a tree with it ?

Lots of info on it appearing here

It's looking a lot like a GPX 4500/5000 running it is very close to an SDC2300 in performance to small gold but with more depth.

Hmmm looks like a good coil. If not log splitting might be possible.

After seeing KiwiJW's Sadie coil I was thinking that coil maybe for me, it's a solid little thing and at 8x6 it can go places nobody else would be swinging their PI's or Zeds.

So I sent the dude who makes them an email just to see what he thinks about the Sadie Vs the 12x8 EVO.  This was his response.

"The 12x8 Evo is more sensitive than the 8x6 Advantage on small gold, however the 8x6 isn’t far behind.  The 8x6 is more tolerant of noisy ground when compared to the 12x8 Evo, it’s also lighter, easier to pinpoint with and great for getting into tight spots.    The 12x8 will have better depth than the 8x6 and this depth advantage will increase significantly as the target size increases."

Tough decision as when I got my 14x9 before the 12x8 came out I was told its as sensitive as the Sadie, possibly more so and a lot deeper.

These new generation coils are sure bringing PI's back in the game after the Zed's release, just imagine how good the Zed would be in manufacturers like Nugget Finder were able to make coils for it.

Is that a mono coil or DD? Indestructible little devil isn't it? :laugh:

Hi Phrunt, how is the (12x6 x coil) going for you?

Hi Joe, Sorry I missed this post, it's going very well thanks 🙂  It's probably my favorite coil at the moment.  Tough one between it and the 15x10" X-coil as to which I like best.

Also, in case people haven't noticed Nugget Finder are giving away a free Sadie coil to anyone who buys a EVO coil in December, not sure if this offer is just for coils purchased in Australia, I guess you could talk to your local friendly dealer to find out.

      Xp deus shaft docs gold screamer and a few different wireless options! Finally got all the peices. Of course I got a bum connector peices for the aptx blue tooth so that will have to wait. I did test it but I had to keep my fingers on the connection while I used it. I must say sounded perfect, there was no lag as far as I could tell. Ready to stuff it in the pack and go find some gold!

      Purchased a GPX- 4500 package and an additional 12" round NF Evolution coil from Chris at AZO and took it for it's maiden run today. It was toasty in Central AZ today but I just had to give the new set up a go for a few hours. Not a bad first run... scored three little nugs.
       
      Totally HOT set up.

      If you own a GPX I'm sure if you don't already have a battery back up you are probably wanting to get one.  Well, that's where I am at.  Problem is buying a 2nd battery is some 400 dollars or more.  I know Doc's has the Screamer kit with the amp and a couple smaller batteries etc which don't sound bad but it's still over 400 dollars for the complete set up.  There may be some other similar set ups as well, I don't know.  I could see the option of buying the Screamer amp for 135, the little pouch that goes around the detector for 50 and another 50 for one battery cutting the cost a bit.  But then you need a different charger for this battery so probably another 20 or so bucks.  So with shipping your probably better than 250 for the set up.  
      Some say the screamer amp is plastic and can get cracks in it easily?  I'm assuming too the screamer has a built in regulator but I don't know.   
      Anyone have experience with using the stock minelab set up VS the aftermarket one's?

      Although no gold, I really enjoyed playing with my new GPX 5000 for a couple of hours. Not belonging to a club yet, I went to Lynx Creek just to get familiar with it in hot ground. Tried the Double D 11" coil to play with the discrimination feature. Set it at 3 and then 5 and still got a few rusty iron pieces but not many (Lynx creek is a very trashy area). I feel the discrimination worked really well for a PI. Had a great time, I am addicted to this machine and cant wait to join a club to go out in a more remote area. Here are a couple of photos of what I found. Many were just whispers when I began so I am sure the detector is working perfect just need to get it over some gold!

      I was searching today for something online and came across this Utube video and thought this was a pretty smart way to put your Deep seeking PI detector to good use.  In the video they use it to locate deep targets, mark them and go back over with an etrac to determine whether to dig or not.
