  1. I got thinking that maybe the pic is just the top part to the coil, based on how thin it is. I sure hope for this one that we don’t have to cut apart the 14 inch coil cover LOL. Maybe you have to buy two coils to get one ?
  2. Sensitivity with the Z is not really sensitivity. It just increases amplification. That is why you will notice that you will have a signal wether you are running at high or low. It’s best to have everything smooth then you will be able to here the faint stuff stand out.
  3. So is the book coming? I am getting to the point where if i don't request a refund from PayPal that I lose the buyer protection they offer. If you don’t think you are going to make your print goal maybe you can at least send a secured PDF to the current buyers. Honestly that is the way I like to read my books so I can keep them all on my iPad and high light them all up with out being permanent if i change my mind.
  4. This is where I hope Coiltek is listening. They only went after one niche. These have huge potential for creek and beach detecting, if only they were water proof. Matter of fact the whole machine could still be!
  5. I would love to hear more on the coils too! If you get one or two let us know how well they work. I dip mine in the water a lot so I haven’t made the jump.
  6. Like phrunt this this name I have always used for everything internet since the day it started. Started with the internet room in college and never looked back. It was a completely random choice of name. Funny thing is it is never taken where ever I have to use a login or username ? I still like some anomitity on the net but when I PM folks I state my real name. I am almost certain that it has “freaked” people out to to have conversation with ?
  7. Damn phrunt good on you! Congrats on getting out of the rat race early!
  8. I must have the best SDC on the planet! I love it! My first piece ever found was a 1/4ozT nugget about 14” deep! I knew I loved this machine even more when I went to Gold basin Arizona and found a 2.5 g piece of moss “sponge” gold and my two buddies running 4500’s wouldn’t even register on it (at depth and out of the hole). I found 5 pieces that day to their 0. I have dug pieces at 2” that don’t register on the scale to multi-gramers at depths of 8”. This is my go to machine first, before the Zed. I have actually found more gold with it than the Z. Now granted if I was in wide open spaces down in the Nevada or Arizona desert I would use the Z. Most of the time the targets will blast your ear off but like Jasong, sometimes there’s just a faint repeatable that you just have to “imagine” into a nugget and dig. Now granted i bought my SDC years before my Z, and almost sold it it to pay for the Z. I’m really glad I didn’t! I’m actually contemplating selling the Z now cause of lack of use and end up buying Coilteks for the desert. The Z is just a little too big for the woods, now a 10” might change my mind or just delay the inevitable. Time will tell.
  9. Well if they are like Floridians here, that is cold! They put winter coats on, stay inside and crank up the heat! ??
  10. Its probably cause its winter down there so they can’t get out to prospect. Cabin fever stuck inside ??
  11. I just want the personal attacks to stop. Stop being a tuff guy on a keyboard type crap. I enjoy seeing people doing good with them. I like hearing what people say against them. Vice versa. Them being the object itself not attacking the person posting it. If you do good thats great! If you destroyed your machine please tell us that too. This is a homemade brand coil, there are no guarantees. Buyer should be aware, but informed as well based on other opinions and facts of use.
  12. Well comparing the two pics I can see what JP was saying about the wires “touching” or having no space as compared to the GPZ14. Interesting. Definitely can tell its hand made too, nothing wrong with that, just observing.
  13. Thanks Rick. That is interesting. And very different looking
  14. Mark, When you did that in the mushy sand any idea how far it sank? And in the hard pack how much did it move around? Couple inches, feet, etc? Thanks!
  15. Jin, I think it would be better to show an Xcoil opened up. The soldier point might not be related at all to the GPZ14 soldier point. I am surprised someone has not opened an Xcoil up yet, most people on here like to see how things tick. Stoke Stoke ?
  16. Ah wasn’t thinking temps Andyy. Its been in the 90s here still too hot but better than snow for me. Yeah on a cool day and if your buddy would too. Even though its an 8” to 10” and different tech I’m still curious. If I was closer I’d help out with mine.
  17. Andyy you mentioned your friend has an SDC. Any way you two could do a comparison on targets? Maybe video it?
  18. Possibly made by NuggetFinder! Lets hope these ones are waterproof.
  19. Do only 2 people own these new Coiltek coils? Even if you don’t have an Xcoil lets hear or see some reviews on these Coiltek ones.
