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

 

A NEW EVOLUTION IS COMING

The 12"x8" Evolution will be released in August 2018

AMAZING SENSITIVITY COMBINED WITH GOOD GROUND COVERAGE

LIGHTWEIGHT - ONLY 740 Grams

More Details and Pictures soon to be released!

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.

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?

      GPX 4500. Been detecting for a while in the hills in California (Sierras) where I got started in 1970 ish with my White 5000 D I purchased from Jimmy Sierra at his shop in San Rafael. We’re still in touch although he says he doesn’t get out anymore but loves to read about others adventures. 
      then moved to New Mexico. I decided recently I needed to try my hand with Minelab and purchased the GPX 4500. I’m finding it difficult to find reading material on settings or proper videos. I have a friend that suggested a setting for the area I prospect in. I got a mono Commander and a GP Series coil with it. Hopefully I’ll find good info on this site. 😎
      Cheers
      John

      I’ve been hunting a good site using the Deus and Equinox which has nails and small iron mixed in with good targets, some good targets being deep, but near or in the iron. My question is, will a GPX with Iron Discrimination turned up and the smallest DD coil pull out the deeper, non-ferrous items amongst heavy iron? Has anyone had any experience with this? I think for shallow targets the Equinox or Deus works better for shallow targets in this “machine gun iron”, but would like to see what others may have insight on for using the GPX. I’m assuming the fast setting and special soil timing may need to be adjusted as well. Thank you in advance.

      Can I reduce the sensitivity of my GPX 5000 but still keep good depth. 
      I'll show you the problems I'm getting in this video

      I bought this GPX 5000 second-hand and when I first had it it worked fine, but now when I turn it on it doesn't seem to be able to detect any signals. If I wand it over a large piece of metal it just about detects it and if I turned the unit on and off it seems to improve it. Could it be the coil?
      I've made a video :

      Thought I'd do we show and tell these are from summer 2018 mainly bedrock hunting in upper creek heads .. using my gpx4500 and goldmonster 1000 all the fines in the left container were from the monster apart from a couple that were gpx or nox800   the two in the centre are 1.7 and 1.6 grams  still yet to break the 2 gram yet hopfuly this year .. I'll be pulling alot of you tube videos up if you want to follow my channel its nugget hunter new zealand ...
      I have a modded gpx4500 but I also modded the shaft to a 3 piece gold big 2 shaft it makes it very portable and easy to carry into hills
