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.

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.
