Any News On The 15 Inch Noxy Coils?

Recommended Posts

Anyone got the low down on the estimated availability?

Thanks,

Andy.

Well, Andy asked for the low down, which I take to mean somebody that really knows. I don’t, but my guess is before the end of the year.

If minelab say end of year, which they told me in an email, then prob' means Feb/March 2019..lol

BUT, they pdated the nox firmware, so I can't cry....too much 😉

Geesh, despite being on multiple dealer wait lists,  I can't even get a 6" coil.  

Best of luck on the 15 incher 😉

The 15 inch is high on my wanted list.  I don't think it will be as in demand as the 6 inch coil was/is.  But I could be wrong.  I didn't have to look for a 6" too hard...it sort of found me.

I like how everyone is calling it a 15-incher - It's a 12x15 elliptical, so don't get too excited if you are hoping for it to be much deeper than the stock .  Great 15" coverage but at 12" wide, it is only going to be marginally deeper than the 11" round perhaps by an inch or two max.(i.e., slightly deeper than a 12" round) and it will be heavy for that marginal depth increase.  If its swing coverage you want without the weight of a full on 15" round coil, then you will be happy.  Just call me Debbie Downer.  Lol.

That's how I've always described an elliptical coil; via the larger number.  A 6x10 DD coil has always been a "10 inch elliptical" to me.  The 12x15 should be roughly the equiv to a 13 inch round coil, and if it offers up to 2 inches more depth, that is huge to a lot of us.  

The way it stands now, in my soil, the Nox is probably the most accurate IDing VLF machine I have ever ran.  BUT...the catch there is that in my soil, it is almost unheard of for a VLF to be able to ID anything accurately beyond 5 to 6 inches or so.  In my case, the Nox can give consistent coin numbers and tone on a dime buried at 10 inches.  Most all other VLFs will read that dime as iron.  10 inches is about as far as it can do that...you might squeeze another half inch out of it if your coil control is perfect and the coin centered of the coil, and even at 10 inches, it requires good coil control.  I have been blown away at the multitude of stuff that has been coming out of the ground with this machine as it is now....adding just 2 more inches to that might open up a whole new world for me.  The past couple weeks, I have been playing with the 6 inch coil and comparing it to the 7 inch concentric coil on the Multi Kruzer.  That 6 inch coil packs quite a punch too.

Anyone got feeback on the Kruzer?  It looks an attractive package, but im thinking the nox would be hard to beat.

      The Nox was impressive on my local beach with the 15 inch coil. No great finds in this short 3 min video.

      I have gotten out a total of 6 times this year, this hunt made 7.  A new friend of mine and long time 3030 hunter challenged me to go to a football field that he has hunted for years with the 3030 and the 17".  He said he would be shocked if I pulled a silver as they are all 8" or deeper and the ground is difficult.  I too swung the 3030 for years, but feel the technology in the 800 is superior and would alert me to any keepers that were under the coil.   I went in the rain/snow and played in the mud for 3 hours looking for keepers in his football field.  Results and settings below.
      Park 2, Fe Bias 3, Recov. 5, Sens. 16-18 depending on Fe noise density, Ground Balance pumped out to 16, Volume 20 (want to know more or if I left something out just ask)
      WARNING:   There is some cussing in the videos, I was excited as I went in there having zero expectations.

      Decided to mod the 800 rod by switching out the straight middle rod to the White's S rod. I know a lot of folks like a straight rod but by switching it out, it eliminates the detector's handgrip from wanting to twist at the end of each swing. In a side by side comparison, both myself and a buddy with an 800 both like the feel of the modified version. The mod requires the middle rod from a White's DFX, or MXT. The rod needs to be drilled on the upper top end for the spring plunger and again adjustment holes need to be drilled on the bottom for length adjustment. The Lower rod from a Makro Racer or Kruzer is used as the lower rod from the Nox is larger in diameter. The top of the S rod also needs to be shimmed about .040" in diameter to fit snug into the Nox upper rod. Now it swings about as close to an F75 as you can get.

      I was looking for an option to do away with the 3 piece Minelab system. I came across the rods Doc makes for the gold hunters.  I might be the first one shipped to use on the Nox. I like the stuff gold guys have, they swing big coils and are in tough conditions.
      This is a good price point on this 2 piece system. Also great for tall persons. I am splitting with someone but for $230  we received two fiberglass lowers and a carbon fiber upper each for a unit cost of $115.  Be aware this is for the rods  only.  I have added pictures   and in the pictures you can see I have added my own Minelab two piece alum. cuff with neoprene covering [i think one of the best cuffs made].  I have also added a separate hand hold and will not use the detector itself to swing the rod. There are no holes for the Nox arm cuff or control unit you will need to drill for these.  Dave
