Hi Steve

I run the 18in SEF DD as my standard coil for treasure hunting in Europe on my GPX4800.

Its a good stable coil that punches deeper than a standard dd, perfect for anything from a single small hammered coin up to large deep items or a cache.

Its been flogged and never developed any touch sensitivity.

Detech is based in Bulgaria so its probably better to buy direct than import from Aus.

The sef were also my go to coils when I used the etrack. 


A mate runs a few of the mono's on the 5k and swears by them.

Good to hear of your positive experience Dale. I have a couple DeTech coils but never used one on my Minelabs. We can certainly use some price competition in accessory coils for the Minelab PI detectors so the more the merrier. We do not hear too much about these because so many dealers are already heavily invested in Nugget Finder or Coiltek.

 I tried out a DD on the 5000. No complaints and from me that is rare. I didn't take the time to do an honest comparison performance wise.

I had a series of Minelab DD failures and the next time one fails I certainly will consider a Detech. I believe Chris Porter is a dealer.

Hi I'm the distributor for Detech in Australia.

We have been having great success with the Detech range of coils.

Australian prospectors have been keen to purchase these competitively priced coils.

And have most certainly given us positive feed back on the build quality and performance.

The range of coils have been extensively tested in the Australian gold fields, all new coils are tested here before we release them.

Most of the feed back is on how sensitive the coils are and how they go about there job so quietly .

These are robust coils 100 percent waterproof and very resistant to bump or touch sensitivity

We've had great customer feed back

The Detech range is still evolving

Hope this helps

Welcome to the forum Stinky Pete and hello again Rege, thanks for chiming in on the thread. Nice for anyone that has any questions to have some contacts.

In case anyone is wondering I am not promoting any particular brand of coils. I am just trying to give some less discussed brands some exposure because many people are not aware of them.

I use the 10x15 Mono E and it's my favorite  coil, I have the Coilteks and Nuggetfinder coils and I have found that Detech coils are super sensitive and no noise when bumped on rocks and bushes. I find all the others fail in that region, its up to par as far as dept and sensitivity but Detech has a profound edge over all the others in the bump test. How many times do you take your coil under bushes and brush reaching as far as you can under them and all you hear is signals from the coil being bumped? With Detech coils i don't experience that, if I hear a signal I know its a target. Tried out the 8 " round and that's the next coil I want to purchase .

Whites Detectors is now offering the Detech Ultimate 13 inch coil on their high end vlf machines, V3i and VX3 at no charge and are also available at an up charge of $79.95 on new MXT All Pros and MXTs.

The coil can also be purchased for $179.95 to previous buyers of these machines.

Its a pity they never made a 14in mono coil for the GPX, I'd have bought one straight away as the 14in is the best all round coil for the 5k.

      I have been lobbying for over 6 years - more like a decade - for somebody to produce a replacement for either the White's Bigfoot, or Tesoro Cleansweep coils. These narrow 18" long coils are superb at scanning large areas for relatively shallow targets, making them excellent for jewelry detecting in large fields, and for vacuuming up recent coin drops. They are so efficient at this that some planted coin hunts prohibit them as an unfair advantage. Also great for beach detecting recent drops, relic/coin hunting huge fields, patch hunting for gold nuggets, even meteorites. See my long thread here for details on the subject.
      The short story is that the Bigfoot was a 3" x 18" figure 8 wound coil, specific to some White's models. This design has advantages, but is very hard to make, pretty much a hand made coil. And to really work best, a detector needs to be optimized for it (see additional post below). Barring some process breakthrough, I expected getting this coil back into production to be difficult at best. I therefore also concentrated on the Tesoro Cleansweep design as an option, as it is simply an elongated DD coil, much easier to produce properly in volume at lower cost, and with no oddball operating characteristics.
      I tried to get Nokta/Makro in particular to make these, as they are generally open to new ideas, and I thought, and still think, a detector sold with this coil as stock would be a unique offering that would attract attention. That came to naught, unfortunately. Then, about a year ago Detech contacted me on another subject. I used that opportunity to once again bring up the elongated coils as an ignored market, and they seemed enthusiastic about pursuing it. But then nothing, silence for a long time. I pretty much gave up hope. I was contacted by another old detectorist on the subject recently, and said just that. I had lost the original contact info from Detech, and was resigned to these coils never happening again. And frankly, I have one, so I'm covered. I just wanted so much for others to be able to get their hands on these coils, especially for machines that never had them as an option.
      Well, miracles happen!! I just was notified that Detech is producing a 4" x 18" DD coil that will be available soon (not sure how soon, but they may chime in on this thread hopefully). I do not know the weight or price, but with Detech I am sure that the price will be reasonable. The best part is that it will be for more than one brand of detector. The list I was just provided with:
      - FISHER'S F75
      - WHITES' DFX / MXT / M6
      And so without further ado, let me give you your first look at a genuinely new product for some detectors, the Detech Arrow! One of my favorite all-time coils is the Detech Ultimate series, so I know they make some great coils. This is a niche coil, but one many people crave. I want to give a very personal thanks to Detech for doing this, as it is something I have tried hard for a long time to get somebody to do, and they have granted this old guys wish finally. Thank you!

      Hi. I'm looking for a smaller than the 6x10 DD coil for my White's detectors. Would like to hear how the 7" Ultimate performs depthwise and how target separation is.

      Hey all,
         I was just wondering if anyone else know's anything about these 3 detectors! The flyers where in my new coil boxes! 👍👍

      I am looking at getting an after market coil for the MXT. Has anyone tried one of the Ultimate or SEF coils by Detech on their unit and if so which model and size did you get and how much of an improvement was it compared to the stock coil??

      After a busy week, doing an effort between heavy rain interruptions, I finally finished this work!
      Thanks for all people involved in this project for their knowledge shared...
      Underwater test next week(I hope)

      Hello to all 2 weeks a go i took the plunge and bought the most suitable coil for my needs......its heavier than my other coil but the aim was :
      How deep can i really dig
      And how much ground can i cover
      So i mounted the beast on my carbon shaft after a few rubber washer adjustment i was all set.Tide was good weather was clear but it s dark after 5pm and the beach has mudflats and alone with limited network i won't take risk of getting stranded.Anyway it heavier and after a few adjustment with the SAT ,the gain  and the delay i was all set.
      This coil is blasting targets really hard i pick up the knife at 50cm and dug a real crater ,not many targets except the silver earing and the find of the day a Silver Long cross penny circa ad 1272-1303 nothing really amazing but i could not  find anything old about this area...........
      Next day went back to try the CTX on the right side on the spot and i pick up lots of fishing weights.
      Can wait to try the coil again maybe next Monday
