I’m in the market for a new coil for my GPX 5k since the others have seen better days etc.
I’ve seen some good reviews regarding the coiltek elite series and had a couple of questions regarding them.
I detect in the sierras with pretty mild ground for the most part. The gold ranges in size but, generally under 5 grams and pretty rough/prickly. I know the 5k doesn’t handle that kind of gold as well as say the Zed, but my buddy has one of those.
My big question is whether to go with the 14” mono or the 17-11” elliptical. Any advice here would be appreciated as I hope to make this the go to main coil.
And if there is another coil I should be considering as well please share your opinion.

My Order of Coils for the SDC-2300 landed. I'll be shipping Friday and Saturday. Let me know which ones you want and be sure to get a Hardware Kit too.
I look forward to hearing and seeing your Success.
Photo is one of my Field Staff and some of the SDC-2300 gold he found with the stock coil. Just wait until he gets to swing one with the other coils.

As most of you know, I have these new coils on Order and will be getting them in soon.
Many of you have asked to see a video on how to Assemble and here it is.
If you have not contacted me to get your name on the list (not collecting $$ until I have the coils), then please do so.
A recent 4 gram was found at a reported 12". I was and still am pretty excited to see more gres gold discoveries as folks get them and start making posts.

My favorite detector looks to have just gotten a lot better with Coilteks new line of coils for the Minelab SDC 2300. Not sure how it works changing coils yet but I’m excited. Now I just need a 10” coil for the Zed.
Was out today and tried a coiltek elite 14x9 coil and could not get a blip on the nose of the coil.
I had to get it centered and even with the shaft to get good signal.
I have run a gpx5000 for quite a few years and got used to targets ringing out around 1-2 oclock on my mono coils.
Anyone know if this is just the way this coil works vs the 14" round elite I had worked great at the edges?
Thanks , more gold than bottle tops to you all!!
