  1. trying to decide , 11inch coil x35 or the 11x13 x35 anyone have experience with both
  2. I have an easy and maybe stupid question to present now... Observing my TDI Bh, with both of the coils I own (the original 12" and the aftermarket Detech 8"), I can clearly see way too long wire around the shaft and I'm forced to make several loops up to the control box near the handle. Supposing to measure the right lenght for the maximum extended shaft, and to cut away the hipmount mile long cable.....Am I doing a disaster or not? I actually can't remember the technical cable's specs in the amazing pdf Steve posted time ago, but if I'm correct it talked about to reduce some cu
  3. Why do the 11” and 15” coils have a small arrow pointed toward you at the top of the coil?
  4. Good morning, just looking for some feedback on the CoilTek 18X12 Goldstalker Mono Elliptical coil. Anyone had any experience with it? If so, what are your opinions on its abilities please. On a different note, how about the Minelab Commander 15X12 semi-ellipitical mono? I realize there are newer, probably much better coils for the GPX, but I'd really like some information on either of these coils by anyone that's used them. Any feedback on either coil is much appreciated, including which one you think might be better than the other . . . (I've never used either one, but have a
  5. Hi guys so the “new to me” atx arrived - mint condition which is great. I have several older ATX coils with various cable faults and wanted to rewire one onto a straight cable. (Do I need a 4 wire and screen cable?) I wonder if anyone has a wiring diagram at all, or failing that - the original cable has 4 wires and a unshielded screen on the DD coil. Is the screen Actually connected to any of the 4 wires? I can’t seem to get the “iron check” feature to work on my salvaged coil and guess this may be due to the screen cable? i know the windings are circa 9ohms and 1.3 o
  6. Fisher contacted me for a purchase of an AQ and was offering the 8" coil. I passed on the AQ since I already have two. Anyone purchased the 8" and what is your opinion?
  7. Is it just my imagination or is the Tarsacci MDT 8000 a different machine with the 12 inch coil on it?? Just seems to be more stable to me, I ran the machine yesterday with the stock coil, same settings basically in a farm field, just didn’t seem to be the same as a few days ago with the 12 inch.
  8. Hello all. I’m new to this forum and am seeking advice on my detector. I recently acquired my dads gpx5000. It’s a big step up from my ML xterra 705. He gave me 2 commander coils. An 11” mono and an 11” DD as well as a coiltek 12x18 goldstalker mono. Previous to this, I was interested in the GM1000 because of its ability with smaller gold. My question is can I make this gpx as good or better for small gold as the GM1000 by using a smaller coil. As you can tell I’m relatively new to this. Lol Thank you Steve
  9. Since I put the 15 inch coil on my 800, I’ve noticed the balance is now NOSE HEAVY....is there a fix to balance it out...ie not be so NOSE HEAVY....??
  10. Something I've been wanting to do for a while now..I got another x ray generator couple weeks ago and wanted to try it out on my DR System.. Heres most but not all of the coils I have. 1. CTX 6" 2. TDI Pro 12" double mono 3. CTX 17' 4. XP Deus 9" 5. Miner John 8x12" mono 6. x cal 8" 7. Gold Monster 6" 8. Fisher Gold Bug two 6" 9. Nox 6" 10. Nox 11" 11-14 GPZ 7000 stock coil
  11. For anyone interested in seeing how a Dual Field is put together, I recently did a video on making one after reading a lengthy thread on the Geotech Forum. Cheers
  12. I wish I had found this forum earlier. Just signed up today. This is best detector forum I have ever seen. I have an old GTAX 1000. Bought it new back in 2000. The factory coil (Crossfire Supreme Deepseeker) was destroyed in a car accident. The control head and top tube section were not touched. I home brewed a bottom tube and it works fine. I called Kellyco asking for a replacement coil. The sales person said they only had one coil that would work with a GTAX 1000. A week later I received from Kellyco a Garrett Pro Performance Elliptical search coil. I called Garrett to make sure the coi
  13. I’ve been dithering on the 15 inch coil for my Noxy 600.... I mostly do beaches here in So Calif..... I’ve been doing ok with the 11 inch that came with, but am not sure if the 15 in her would be an advantage..... what are your thoughts? ? ?
  14. Hi all ! and cheers for the add ! I have had the Nox for nearly 3 years now and have finally bitten the bullet and grabbed a Monster 😁 also this morning Eyyyyhaaa ! Now for the stupid first question (I've had a read and could not find anything in a post on it 😔) Has anyone here tried a Nox 15 inch coil on the Gold Monster. The Nox can run at 40mHz and the Monster runs 45mHz so pretty close there and I have read (not confirmed) elsewhere that the coils have proprietry chips in them to stop interchangeability. They both fit each others coils though even though some said the plugs w
  15. Saw this while looking for something else. Seems like a good price? Thought I would share here. Maybe it is not a favored coil as I’ve read it is heavy and not much deeper than 11” on the F75. The F75 coil full price is $150 however.... so maybe not.
  16. I am looking for some guidance on what coil size to use when I go into an area for the first time. I am using a White's Goldmaster 24k and have a complete set of coil sizes. I would be working in either Nevada or Arizona. When I enter an area for the first time I do not know if it has been worked previously or is virgin ground. Does this information affect my coil size choice? Should I plan to make just one pass over an area or two passes using a large coil first and then a smaller coil? I don't want to miss a larger deep target and I would also like to find the smaller near surface targ
  17. What is the best aftermarket coil for the Bounty Hunter Time Ranger Pro, Teknetics G2+, Fisher F-19 and Fisher Goldbug Pro (they are all more or less the same detector)? NEL, CORS, MARS or Detech are the choices.
  18. VLF detectors can come with DD or concentric coils. This is similar to but not quite the same thing as DD versus mono on a pulse induction detector. There are three basic coil types in wide use, Concentric, Double D (DD) and Mono. A VLY detector transmits and receives simultaneously and so there must be both a transmit coil and a receive coil. A pulse induction (PI) detector can alternate between transmit and receive and so one coil can be employed as both transmit and receive in an alternating fashion. There is confusion on this but simply put VLF (induction balance or continuous wave) detect
  19. Hey all, I just found my coil connection sheared off at the control housing. (oops, and bad timing as I was just headed out!) Luckily no damage to the control housing connection but the other end was bent and broken right off... I sent some photos to minelab to asses if they will fix it or not but still waiting. I was wondering if anyone knows if its possible to buy this connector anywhere? If minelab wont fix it then I will end up splicing one on myself and hope for the best (minus the water tightness of course) . Any help would be so appreciated!
  20. This is a Garrett forum for people who like Garrett detectors, so they can learn about how to get the best out of them. If you want to compare brands, or just state your negative opinion of Garrett or it's products, please use the appropriate forums, like the Advice & Comparisons Forum. Thanks.

  22. Does anyone know whether Miner John has been successful in rebuilding his manufacturing facility after it burned in the fire? I am entertaining the idea of buying one of his coils if and when they once again become available, and am just curious. I certainly wish him the best.
  23. For those folks who have used both the 9” round HF coil and 5” x 9” elliptical HF coil, if you could have only one, which would it be and why? Thanks in advance for any responses. 22.5cm (9”) Round DD coil: 13 to 15.7kHz, 26 to 31kHz, 50 to 59kHz 24 x 13cm Elliptical DD coil: 13 to 15.7kHz, 26 to 31kHz, 68 to 81kHz
