  1. I haven't used my Treasure Pro in about a year and it has been packed up and hauled around a bit. I turned it on and I get random readings all over of the scale. I followed the directions to reset it with no change. If the coil is not connected it is quiet. Could I have a broken coil? Dan
  2. I was thinking the other day about some of the best metal detectors of the analog age and early digital age. My memory shows concentric searchcoils, the Fisher CZ series being an example. What is the earliest commercial detector that had the commercial option of a DD coil? (As opposed to prototypes, experiements, garage builds, etc., although if you know of any of those it would also be interesting to read about.) Were there analog detectors (and if so, which ones) that worked with DD coils or did those not come around until digital circuitry took over?
  3. What is wrong with the Gold Kruzer? Why doesn't NEL or CORS or Magic or Detech make any coils for the Gold Kruzer? They make full lineups of coils of for the Gold Racer, but not a one for the Gold Kruzer. You can't say its because of the water proof connector, as they make coils for the Kruzer and Anfibio. You can't say its because of the frequency as they make coils for the Gold Racer and the Gold Kruzer is basically a waterproof Gold Racer. So what gives? Why do the aftermarket coil mfg's treat the Gold Kruzer like an ugly step-child? Mike
  4. It may not be the best detector out of the competitors but it sure has the best coils! NEL Coils for Garrett Ace Apex All models of the NEL coils for Garrett Ace Apex metal detectors.

  5. Finally got a Superfly for my Multi Kruzer. It weighs just .01 lbs more than the stock 7x11. Overall it is less chattery and I can kick the gain up much more. Depth wise on a silver dime it at same gain settings it will go between 2"-3" deeper with steadier numbers. Target separation seems to be about the same and in the field I gave it a go for about an hour or so and it was really nice to swing. Though I only found a bit of clad I plan on giving this one some serious hours. Not sure if it is a worthy upgrade for anyone with an Amphibio but if you have one of the Kruzers I highly recomme
  6. I leave you a video in case someone wants to do it. Having two dishes to choose from, I don't know if it's worth it. Although it must be recognized that the plate is much cheaper and larger. The video is in Spanish but the procedure to do it looks pretty good.
  7. I was listening the other day to C-Scope talking about the new Evo-6000. They said they opted for single frequency operation with the coil set for one frequency as it is better as it resonates at it's design frequency, in this case 17khz. They did say there will be option coils to change the frequency higher or lower but this will mean purchasing a new coil to change frequency. Is this truly the best way to achieve the best sensitivity at a given frequency or are they just holding on to old tech. There are other makes of detector that you can change frequency with the same coil (Deus
  8. 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.
  9. Just got bitten by the broken coil ear bug. Have had the Nox for 2 years and thought I was special because mine hadn't broken yet. It is on it's way to PA. Wanted to get one of the stiffener devices to put on the new coil for insurance. I've read a couple of horror stories of both ears breaking off after using one. I was leary of just buying from eaby or amazon. If you use one who did you buy it from and how has it worked?

  11. ⁉️ Which one is better? Has anyone done a comparison test between the two coils for a jewelry hunt in the water? (freshwater or land) Both are able to use the same frequency. 28 kHz is very good for detecting gold. When I hunt in the water it is a very useful feature of target ID normalization. On the of LF coil, this was a big advantage. I set the gold range, so I only dug out the signals that belong to it. The HF 9" coil is great, but when I increase the frequency the VDI changes, getting higher and higher. The upper range will become narrower. This makes it difficult to decid
  12. The coil cable has developed what I think is a discontinuity on one or more wires at or in the molded plug. Plug says: "Amphenol". There are 8 conductors. Does anyone here know the part number for a replacement plug to fit the jack on the rear of the MX Sport control box? 50 years ago I soldered a shortwave radio kit together; I'm quite rusty, but perhaps I could solder a new plug on (doesn't NEED to be waterproof). TIA!
  13. I hope there is some retesting videos of the newer coils on depth, should be much better depth with the larger coils.
  14. Who would like the idea of the 14" coil being made in the open web design like the 19". I wonder if there is any reason why Minelab didnt do this, or if they could/would. It would have to save a bit of weight...wouldnt it?? Cheers. Another question....while l am on here. I have the opportunity to purchase a 2nd hand Zed. Is the warranty transferable from the original purchaser, from new, to me? Thanks. Good luck out there JW :)
  15. I finally got my old 11'' replaced. This new coil is working great and I couldn't be more happy. Thanks to Dilek all my problems have been resolved. Yesterday and today were the first times I have given it a good run. I decided to hunt a farm house yesterday. I usually think the finds are getting low. Well low and behold I was wrong. Yesterday was good and bad as posted on the coin and relic forum. Today was even better!! same farm plus a kids camp. In two hours at the farm I scored a 2 oz. sinker, a bunch of odd lead, 2 wheat pennies, a girl scout pin from the 60's and two fabulous 1952
  16. I just got word today that the new lightweight 15” coils are in production. I have a prototype for the T2 - it weighs 750 grams (26 oz.). MSRP is $149. If anyone wants one, I can get it shipped direct from FTP to you. It looks identical to the previous 15” coil - just made with different epoxy and much lighter.
  17. Hey guys, I've been doing some reading on Mars Lion 7" coils to see how they might compare to NEL or others but coming up a bit dry. Saw something about the MARS coils maybe being more sensitive but noisy. I really like the way the NEL are built, as least externally. Would be great to see the construction too, can only hope.. Looking at the Mars Lion, NEL Sharpshooter / CORS Fortune, and maybe the 7 or 9" Nokta Makro concentric for kind of a smaller coil to user in dense areas with an Anfibio. The primary now is a NEL Hunter 12.5x8.5. Really "digging" that one, so much so that I
  18. Does anyone know how to make coils for GPZ detectors? Or is anyone aware of companies that make coils for minelab detectors???
  19. 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
  20. I have a Sovereign XS2-a Pro and was looking at aftermarket coils. Any of you fellas use one? Does it go deeper than stock 10 inch coil? How's the stability? Any other coils you guys use/recommend?
  21. If you don't want to lose depth and get perfect discrimination in any soil you need custom coil. Here some tests with subs Скачать видео Скачать видео
  22. Been keeping my eyes out for the Nel Super Fly or CORS Butterfly 12w X 11 long coil. Weighs 420g. Seen some for Garrett AT Series and ML Soverign. https://corscoils.com/product/butterfly/ Hopefully more will come over to the states. Looking for a bigger coil for my MK.
  23. 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)
  24. I have a slight issue with my 11'' coil. Almost from day one it does not pin point in the center of the coil. It was about 2'' toward the nose, not that big a deal at the time. Now it hits anywhere on the whole edge, which means I have a 11'' pinpoint spot. This is very hard to find center target now. Also it is becoming knock sensitive on grass and gets a little chattery even on good solid targets. This coil is only about 4 months old. That being said who should I contact first, Nokta or the service center in Georgia? Anyone have any experience sending stuff back?
  25. I was wondering what you serious “Water” hunters use to weigh down your coils. Someone once suggested taking a “tube” sock, filling it with sand, tying it in a circle (like an ankle weight) and sliding in over your lower rod having it lay on the coil. I’ve also seen bandanas (to keep you cool) with Silica Gel sewed in to them. They absorb the water and expand making them heavier than they are dry. I wonder if you had enough in there, would that work also? Thanks! Walt
