Thanks for the news, the SDC just appeared on everyone's radar again 🙂

Oh, and isn't that Rick Fishers from Aussie Gold Hunters, he's a good man!  I'm glad he's got to test them out before they hit the market, I hope he did well...

They sell this kit that lets you use the coils on the SDC

Gold Extreme Accessories Pack

This accessories pack has all you need to fit our Gold Extreme coils to your Minelab SDC2300 detector. With a high quality injection moulded shaft attachment, clamp and cover you will only need to purchase this once to fit all your coils!

I was talking to my dealer earlier and he informed me the coils aren't waterproof, which is a bit odd for a waterproof detector.  Minelab has also issued a warning that they will void the warranty of an SDC2300 that fails as a result of using one of these coils which I guess is most likely if it goes in the water.

Very interesting, makes me glad I have the SDC2300 but don’t know if any of those coils would be an improvement for me here in Alaska. I still have yet to break its streak of being skunked...

Sorry to go off topic but out of Interest, how's your Gold Bug Pro treating you in Alaska?

The original coil lead goes up through the shafts and is a curly lead, why does this one get wrapped around the outside of the shafts and where does it go inside the cover to connect????

Maybe the guy in the picture can show us the other side of the detector and explain why the coil lead is wrapped around the outside

It's not a very good picture, but it shows they have a new cover on the left hand side of the detector with a hole in it to get to the coil connection, the new cover is in the kit that you can purchase 😲

cheers dave

While I like the idea of better ground coverage with the larger coils, what you end up giving up is the huge convenience factor that the SDC offers. The time that it takes to go from 0 to Detect will be significantly longer as now you have to put this adaptive assembly together. It kills the grab n' go. I love my SDC, but If I am ever in a situation I need to swing a larger coil there is the GPX. 

I say all this now, but if the 14x9 isn't absurdly expensive, I may give it a shot this summer.

      I saw the prototype of the first coil that will be released for the 2300.  10x5"  The tester really likes it and apparently it is dynamite on the jagged bits.   And the main  thing I wanted in these new coils, it is centre mount .  I will probably start using my 2300 a bit more

      Maybe something to think about. Bearing in mind I am probably going to get these new coils for the 23 and 7 myself, people should at least consider, a lot of people are saying something along the lines of "my detector is out of warranty anyway, so I`m not risking anything fitting these new coils", but, it is Minelabs policy to not repair any modified Minelab detector.    I daresay that if you were to send a out of warrenty 2300 or 7000 back to Minelab for repair and Minelab saw you were running a unsanctioned coil, they wont repair the detector.    You could end up with a 4K or 10K detector that all it`s good for is to fill it with concrete and use it as a anchor.
      Like I said, I am probably going to get the coils myself, but I will be doing it with the idea that if either detector fails I will probably have to throw it away, and that`s on me and no one else.
      I have no reason to suspect the coils are going to cause any damage and I wish Coiltek and davsgold nothing but success with these new coils.

      I would like to start a thread of peoples opinions on what they found between these two machines with various coils.  I love my SDC and have found my biggest and smallest gold with it (8”).  My GPZ has definitely gone deeper for gold (14”).  I am about even on the total count for each, weight a being different story.
      I understand that if you only have one detector then you want coil options, but if you got both I wonder what would be a better bang for your buck?  A 10” Xcoil at $1000 or a 11”Coiltek at $310.  Thats if they compare at depth and sensitivity.
      Norvic I would love for you to state your opinions here, you seem to have the most on thses just based on other posts.

      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. 
      Thanks!

      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.
