  1. I was wondering if the aftermarket coils were that much better than the Minelab, i.e Coiltek. I'm very hesitant to go Coiltek because the GPX was designed to use only Minelab coils? My fear is i don't want to hurt my GPX 5000 in the long term by putting a coil on it that Minelab doesn't like? It seems like everyone with a GPX is using a aftermarket coil. I especially like the Coiltek 9" Elite I'f you were me would you get a Coiltek coil?
  2. Has anyone had any experience with the Coiltek Anti Interference coils? Interference is the thing I like the least about my GPX and these are said to work right under power lines. I realize I can use a DD and Cancel mode and so on, but was wondering if these are even better? Goldhunting Anti-Interference Series The Anti-Interference series is unique to Coiltek. These four coils are used in regions around the world where there is high interference from power lines, salt lakes and other environments that cause electro‑magnetic interference. There are options in the series which are lightweight and easy to manoeuvre with good pinpointing ability. Another option is a large, unique drag style coil for the ultimate in coverage and performance for gold and treasure hunting. This combination of good sensitivity and depth coupled with good ground coverage and low noise from external influences opens up greater possibilities in many gold and treasure fields around the world. https://www.coiltek.com.au/coils/goldhunting-anti-interference/
  3. So this Saturday im heading back out to the property that produced 4 nuggets with the GPX 4800 last time, using the 11 inch coiltec elite. The area we will be focusing on has mainly been known for producing larger nuggets in excess of 5 grams. My question is, is there any advantage to use the 11 inch coil vs the 15x12. The 15x12 obviously gets more ground coverage but would think the two would be about equal on depth to larger nuggets. The 15x12 is probably less responsive to smaller nuggets compared to the 11 inch. Which would you use on ground that was just clear cut with targets that will generally be on the order of 5 grams or larger? Thanks for the help
  4. My favorite detector looks to have just gotten a lot better with Coilteks new line of coils for the Minelab SDC 2300. Not sure how it works changing coils yet but I’m excited. Now I just need a 10” coil for the Zed. https://www.coiltek.com.au/coils/gold-extreme/
  5. I’m in the market for a new coil for my GPX 5k since the others have seen better days etc. I’ve seen some good reviews regarding the coiltek elite series and had a couple of questions regarding them. I detect in the sierras with pretty mild ground for the most part. The gold ranges in size but, generally under 5 grams and pretty rough/prickly. I know the 5k doesn’t handle that kind of gold as well as say the Zed, but my buddy has one of those. My big question is whether to go with the 14” mono or the 17-11” elliptical. Any advice here would be appreciated as I hope to make this the go to main coil. And if there is another coil I should be considering as well please share your opinion. Thanks!
  6. 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. Gerry's Metal Detectors
  7. Maybe something to think about. Bearing in mind I am probably going to get these new coils for the 23 and 7 myself, people should at least consider, a lot of people are saying something along the lines of "my detector is out of warranty anyway, so I`m not risking anything fitting these new coils", but, it is Minelabs policy to not repair any modified Minelab detector. I daresay that if you were to send a out of warrenty 2300 or 7000 back to Minelab for repair and Minelab saw you were running a unsanctioned coil, they wont repair the detector. You could end up with a 4K or 10K detector that all it`s good for is to fill it with concrete and use it as a anchor. Like I said, I am probably going to get the coils myself, but I will be doing it with the idea that if either detector fails I will probably have to throw it away, and that`s on me and no one else. I have no reason to suspect the coils are going to cause any damage and I wish Coiltek and davsgold nothing but success with these new coils.
  8. As most of you know, I have these new coils on Order and will be getting them in soon. Many of you have asked to see a video on how to Assemble and here it is. If you have not contacted me to get your name on the list (not collecting $$ until I have the coils), then please do so. A recent 4 gram was found at a reported 12". I was and still am pretty excited to see more gres gold discoveries as folks get them and start making posts. Gerry's Metal Detectors in Boise, Idaho at www.gerrysdetectors to get on the list. Or just call/email me.
  9. Pretty cool news for sdc 2300 owners, three new coils. https://www.coiltek.com.au/coils/gold-extreme/
  10. 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

  12. Was out today and tried a coiltek elite 14x9 coil and could not get a blip on the nose of the coil. I had to get it centered and even with the shaft to get good signal. I have run a gpx5000 for quite a few years and got used to targets ringing out around 1-2 oclock on my mono coils. Anyone know if this is just the way this coil works vs the 14" round elite I had worked great at the edges? Thanks , more gold than bottle tops to you all!!
  13. I have found tons of good info on the 14" round but have found none on the 14x9 elliptical. Anyone swinging this? The 14 round sounds amazing, its just the elliptical fits my detecting better. Steep narrow gullies.
  14. I have my 22 inch mono coiltek golstalker bobbin I want to replace it with 18 inch mono elite coiltek
  15. Last few years I have been working a nice stretch of land with many small creeks and tribs feeding them. The primary large ones apparently are the ones that the early miners worked and the ones I have focused on. I would work the banks, tailing piles and pretty much clear any targets out of the way. Over the years I have cleared sections of trash and gold that stretch up to a half a mile long along the creeks. I have basically cleaned it up pretty good. I still have miles of creeks to clean up downstream of these creeks that are littered with tailing piles. But before i do that I wanted to purchase a larger coil to hit some spots that I cleaned up. Thanks to Luke I am now a proud owner of the 18" Elite that I am taking out his morning to hit some of those areas I cleaned up. Hopefully there are some deep ones lurking ... Friday Morning : Today was the day....was working a bench way above the present creek and after an hour in a spot I been with other coils multiple times , the 18" elite groaned with a nice sharp deep tone...digging down about 15 inches out came this nice little 4.27 gram placer nugget. Outside of it being a bit heavy...the coil is extremely stable in medium ground, I was running it hot 14 gain, stab 8, enhanced mode, the 4500 purrred like a kitty. I've dug some deep targets ...the key with these large coils is to go very, very slow and use a bungee support system...found I could swing this 5 hours without to much discomfort. Overall I am very happy with the Elite! Thanks again Luke!
  16. Hello to all at Detector Prospector! Just started on this forum so wanted to say hi and say I have enjoyed reading the topics. I hope to post up some finds too when i do get a chance to have a swing... and also contribute in a beneficial way on topics (i hope!!!:)) Have a great day all! Trevor @ Coiltek.
  17. Hello I made it back out again today but with a different strategy. Use a gpx 5000 armed with 2 new high tech coils from Coiltek instead of a vlf detector. Actually most of the area has already been grided with the vlf detectors. So it was time to see what the Coiltek coils could find. I already have been running the Coiltek mono elite 14" since last spring with great success. but now I have the 18" mono elite to add some more to the 5000 arsenal I tried the new 18" first today. It was a particularly bad emi day to start. so I ran the 5000 in finegold mode with some minor adjustments. Despite the emi, The 18" did a good job finding deeper targets. Managed to find 3 pieces of yellow with it. It gets amazing depth and once the emi settled down it ran very smooth in sens xtra. For a big coil it handles the mineralization very well. the smallest that I found was .3 gram. which seems to be on target with some results from Oz. It is only 10 grams heavier then the 14" mono elite. But you cant even notice. it is well balanced and is not nose heavy. And this is without a harness and running a gold screamer in the side pouch of box cover. All in all a great coil for sheer depth on smaller and bigger targets. Next was the 14" mono elite to see what it could get in the same grid. it is very good at finding tiny targets deep. I ran it in sens xtra with some tweaking. I managed to pull up 3 more with it. The smallest was .1 gram. the 14" is amazing aswell on how deep that it finds small targets. Both coils together brought in 1.5 dwt for the trip. I have tried other coils on the 5000 from Coiltek blitz coils to nuggetfinder 14" and 16". But it is very easy to see in person that something is going on inside the new Elite series that is making a real difference. Not just smoke and mirrors. It will interesting to revisit some patches from the past that produced muti ounces, to see what the new 18" elite can dig up. I will be heading to them soon. Good luck and Happy easter I did a couple videos that I will post aswell. Only bad thing was I didnt bring my speaker with me. Only had the phones. So you cant really hear the detecting. Just faintly from my headphones.
  18. Hi all just moved into new house and found coiltek coil 1271 number on top of coil any ideas what this coil fits 15 inch.
  19. Yes it is so. You can read all about it on the MD-Hunter Blog. The coils will be for the series of TDI detectors. Coiltek makes great coils but again I'm left out in the cold with my MX Sport. Chuck
  20. Been reading a lot about the new Coiltek, Nugget Finder & now Detech coils of late. I haven't had much to do with any of these but have detected a small area immediately after 2 x GPX4500 with the Coiltek Elite 14" mono attached. Although not an exhaustive or scientific test the end result was I got 8 x subgram nuggets from the area with the SDC & the 4500's nothing. 2 of the subgrammers came from adjacent to their scrapings so they knew something was there but was still iffy enough to walk away from. I keep hearing or reading how these coils are transforming GPX's into SDC's or even GPZ's but this short "test", for want of a better word, put some doubts in my mind. I've got no doubt that there is improvement in the new coils in how they enhance the target information or audio response of the detector through better windings etc. but I'm not entirely convinced it's as substantial as some make out. My thoughts are it may be about 10% performance improvement (every bit does help regardless) & 90% of a placebo effect i.e. you buy a new coil excited by the possibilities of it's performance, you regain some enthusiasm & become more positive in approach even detecting more carefully + with more purpose - then when you find gold of course it's the new coil that done it right? Another thing that has me scratching my head is how excited people are about them finding very small gold. My smallest bit with a GPX5000, fine gold & standard 11" Minelab Commander mono coil was 0.03 of gram (I think about 0.46 of a grain) so they have always been capable of doing it even with an unfashionable coil (but still a good one). Like I said I'm not doubting that there are definite performance improvements, much like the introduction of litz wire, but I do believe a lot can also be attributed to a refreshed or reinvigorated enthusiasm too. New detectors could also have a very similar affect on us. What do the experts reckon?
