Hello, I am new to the forum but not new to prospecting and mining. Have prospected a lot of places around the state.. Has anyone worked with SDC 2300 before??? I'd love to know your experience. Thanks

Fantastic machine, sniffs out the little ones, turn on and go. Compact, easy to use. Perfect for the smaller places. Shock proof and waterproof. First day I had mine I fell off a small ledge and flung the machine 10 feet on to rocks. ? Picked it up, rebooted and kept on detecting. Love it?

There is more information on this forum about the SDC 2300 than any other out there. Here is a quick link to SDC related threads.

The SDC-2300 is one of the most popular PI Units I sell.  Many of my clients enjoy it more than their 4500's and 5000s.  If you want to go into details of Pros/Cons of the machine, contact me direct as I have not the time to type that much info.

Looking forward to seeing you on this fine forum more often too.

      Anyone have any ideas why an SDC2300  may not be powering up??
      We have used 2 different sets of batteries that work fine in another unit.
      Not much to troubleshoot except the batteries and off/on switch.        {{{SOLVED}}}}}}}
      Was working fine when it was last used. 
      Hate to send it to Minelab---they may be tiring of me….. 😏

      So I have had two very experienced older prospectors tell me that they don't like the 2300 because the threshold warbles. In other words it is not stable. It does not really matter which setting you use it still has a slight warble to it. Since I am new to prospecting I just kinda figured this was normal for the Minelab PI's They tell me that their 4500 and 5000 have a nice stable threshold which allows them to hear the faint signal's better. Therefore they don't have to use as much gray matter trying to figure out a target.  I have sometimes wondered  if I am missing small pieces of gold because of this. But then again I have found some very small pieces with the 2300. So my question is....is this normal for the SDC 2300 or is something wrong with both of my machines?   I'm guessing normal.  A few nuggets found during the last couple weeks. Biggest is .52 grams

      I just got a screaming deal on a SDC 2300. So just inquiring if anyone has any more experiences with the aftermarket coiltek coils? I'm seriously thinking about getting some to make the SDC a patch hunting machine.

      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

      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.

      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.
