  1. Most of you think I have all kinds of free time but the actuality of it is that my free time is very limited. Yes I sell detectors for a living and so keeping customers happy and income coming in is a must. As you seen the extra price of fuel makes for more of a challenge to get away and then trying to schedule the Field Training we offer along with testing of new and upcoming gear is challenging. To make things worse, we have had one of the wettest and most cool Springs in history here in Idaho and it seems about the time I plan for more testing a big storm rolls in. Anyway, I was able to put some time aside and run the new CoilTek GOLDHAWK (why do I keep wanting to call it GOLDENHAWK?) coil on my GPX-6000. I selected the 10" Ellip MONO as I knew the site had been pounded with a GPZ-7000 and a good year with the GPX-6000 and 11" MONO coil. I was not expecting much but either way, those are the sites that I want to test, the so called CLEANED OUT patches. It took all of a minute and 3 feet to find my 1st. The 10" Ellip MONO GOLDHAWK coil is lighter so I can hunt for longer periods of time. It's more compact and allows for hunting in tougher terrain and up against boulders and tree roots where nugget like to hide. It's greater sensitivity to smaller bits, certain specimens and or highly collectible wire gold. I won't go into detail of why a couple well known GPZ-7000 users missed this nugget and or how a veteran GPX-6000 user missed this nugget, but will say this. They missed it and I found it with the new compact 10" ELLIP MONO GOLDHAWK coil by CoilTek.
  2. Looks like three sizes for the 6000 coming soon. Not much info but at least they are approved by Minelab. https://mailchi.mp/coiltek.com.au/g2osktoyd3-13772986?e=9ca788132a

  4. Anyone know who might have a CoilTek 10x5 coil in stock? I'd like to give it a try in the bush.
  5. Over the past weekend I was able to get into the back yard and try out my new 10x5 coil. What I have noticed is that the numbers that should be trash is coming up as coins. For example I see and hear a 21-22 and it is a penny, where before it would be 19-20. A 28 is showing up for dimes now, and the quarters are at 32-34. Is the coil showing anyone else the same numbers or is it just mine is my question. Thank you to all who may respond.
  6. Looking good! 👍🏼 Coiltek Search Coils for Minelab Equinox
  7. I"m curious if anyone has tried the Coiltek 15" NOX coil and if so their thoughts on it. This is the coil: https://coiltek.com.au/coils/nox/15-nox-coil/ I used a WOT coil for several years and liked it but ultimately the weight did me in. The coverage area of this new coil intrigues me but I am concerned about the weight. Bill (S. CA)
  8. i am just the messenger, so i have been told the new 10x5 coil has mediocre depth and jumpy id. i have one on order. is the coiltek 10x5 made in batches? any user information would be greatly appreciated. please respond politely i am just asking
  9. Spending a few days at the beach and managed to get out for a few hours to bond with my Coiltek Nox 10x5 coil (really 9.5 x 5). Only have had a chance to hunt two or three times with it. Have now had a couple 2 to 3 hour runs with it. Once in a park and now this beach run. Though no spectacular finds with it so far, it is hitting keeper targets well with decent depth/sensitivity, ID stability, and it pinpoints well. Love the light weight coupled with the tight swing ability and OK swing coverage. I will probably be selling my 6" round because it no longer serves a purpose for me. This coil combined with my Zlobrik telescoping CF shaft forms the basis for my tote anywhere light weight Equinox kit. I'm relic hunter, not a proficient beach hunter, and knowingly did not optimize my probability of success (went out with rising tide, light beach day, hunted primarily the towel line, went with a low[er] coverage coil etc.) because of time restrictions - had other family activities planned. Anyway, nothing spectacular. Plenty of clad, some junk rings and the only thing of perhaps relative value, what appears to be a silver, engraved Toyota key fob or medallion. Weird item, but definitely silver backed and heavy at .8 oz. Trash ratio was pretty good, only fooled in a couple of junk items like the washer, vape, the screw top (natch), a pull tab that rang up a solid 13, the drywall anchor insert, a disposable contact lens foil pak, a freshness seal (great solid 7 target ID but the tone is light vs. a ring) and the rusty tent stake that was falsing off the bend. That silver medallion fooled me too as I thought it was just another clad quarter (hadn't noticed the VDI above 35) and the junk rings sound great too. The other items were iffy probable junk that I dug just to confirm suspicions. Used Beach 1 primarily, though I could have gotten away with just about any other mode because I did relatively little wet/saturated sand swinging (high surf line was really sanded in with minimal cuts and steep slope). The key on the bottlecaps was running iron bias F2 at max 9. They were unmistakable after that. Anyway. I had fun and like my light weight Nox setup.
  10. I was talking to Rob yesterday about something I wanted to order from him and the subject of the 10X5 plus the above coil came up. I was just wondering if anyone here has ever used it? He made the statement that he has two of them. I’m like so many with their money down on the 10X5 and not knowing if are when we’ll get it. Chuck
  11. Hi All, what you tell about that? Check your coils 10x5, do you have such a problem? This is my video from Russia, the titles may not be clear to you, but I think that everything is clear in the video
  12. this update is about the 5x10 depth. I was running prk1, 5 recovery and finally found a place that had deep coins. I ended up with a rosey, merc and 5 wheaties. The merc and one wheatie were a solid 9 inches and maybe a little over. I was really happy with the results of the 5x10. I think that's getting right on the edge of max depth for a dime size coin in the soil around here. It was nice finding a place like that to really test out the 5x10. I'm giving it a b+ on depth. Still not as deep as the 11 inch but very respectable.👍
  13. A lot of you are gonna get the Coiltek 10x5 coil, and some of you are going to be irritated like I am that the Equinox falls over when you set it down. Went on Amazon and found the cheapest/ lightest rifle bipod I could find: https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B01M0A1RB5 It would be terrible for a rifle, but it's great for the Equinox. The legs fold out, and while they can get in the way when swinging the detector, I find I'm pretty comfortable using them open. It only weighs about 8 ounces. The best part of it is the clamp, it can be used universally, even on my new carbon fiber shaft. The legs are removable from the clamp block via a thumbscrew. Another benefit it seems to provide is enough counterweight to relive trigger finger, I've been having a lot of problems with my right ring finger locking up at night. It's a lot better now. The clamp is probably steel, so don't tighten it too much and hit it with WD-40 now and again to keep it from rusting.
  14. Where I preordered anticipated ship date is March 28. Has anyone’s been shipped yet?, Does anyone have reliable information? I’m only impatient when I’m waiting for something, lol
  15. Finally got my hands on one of these coils and am grateful. I was also lucky. Very lucky. First thing I was pleased about was that my Equinox coil bolt worked, it was a little tight but went right through. Did a system reset and re-paired my headphones. Next I noticed the coil cover is kinda sloppy, so I grabbed a couple of black zip ties, problem solved. I have an ear stiffener on my large coil with zip ties so this is no big deal to me. It will be easier to get off than the Minelab cover which was tough to get on, let alone off. It was kinda late in the day, so I set up my usual settings, Field 2, sensitivity 23, F2=3. This is what I used last weekend at the campground to score over 200 coins, although I had to switch to 10kHz a few times to cancel EMI. I went out in the back yard to a spot where there are hundreds of bullet shells of all sizes and metals, some steel, others varying brass, and a lot of lead. I wanted to see how the coil performed in a very dense metal environment. I noise cancelled, and then ground balanced in a spot with no metal. The first thing that struck me was how easily this coil goes silent when pumping it, I almost never get a perfect reading with the 11" coil, so I just go with it. This coil went silent after a few pumps no matter where I balanced, either turf, soil, or the dreaded "gravel test" in my driveway. If you've ever hunted in gravel, you know what I mean. The silence after about 5 pumps was shocking, and then every real target appeared with no false sounds. Wow! I tried it in a bit of field, thinking what a bonus it will be this fall because they planted corn this year. Real easy to maneuver. In turf it "falsed" a bit when it hit tall grass or stiff weeds, but not nearly as bad as the 11". Another thing I noticed was how "tight" the target IDs were. steel shells were 9 -11, brass 13-15. It almost seems like the coil has laser precision identifying targets. Can't wait to see how accurate pinpointing is! I didn't dig anything because I just got my lawn looking good, but I plan to take it to an area where there is a ton of trash, and see what I'm missing. It picked up targets at max depth, so the proof will be in the diggin'. Just a first impression, more to come.
  16. I documented a recent 3-hour beach run in this post. It focused on my thoughts on the 10x5 coil. Bottom line: I like it. I covered mainly the dry sand towel line, got into one pocket spill and found a silver engraved medallion or key fob from a local car dealership. I did well to avoid trash and relied on high F2 iron bias to eliminate bottlecaps. Today I managed to hit the tide line and to literally get my feet wet with the Nox 10x5 in the wet sand and surf wash. What struck me was the stability of the coil in the wash in Beach 1 at the relatively high sensitivity setting of 23. The other eye opener was the sensitivity to micro targets under those conditions at up to 6-inches in saturated sand and moving salt water. Again nothing spectacular, a very tiny brass rosary centerpiece displaying a miniature "Our Lady of Guadalupe" relief image, two tiny pendants or charms of unknown composition a pineapple charm, and a small decorative loop that broke in my pouch (it was heavily corroded), a small portion of stainless chain, and a couple coins. I struck silver again on the return trip through the towel line with a freshly dropped silver and turquoise watch with SS back and band (primarily an eyeball find after it blasted my headphones on the coil sweep and yes, the time was set accurately and ticking away just fine, lol). Trash was similar to yesterday (you can see it in the bag in the background) with some tiny falsing ferrous wire and nails that were too iffy not to scoop. Some bottlecaps just to periodically confirm the ID (even with full IB, you can get a 10 to 15 ID chirp off the edge but it is dominated by a ferrous grunt). Couple of pristine "13er" pull tabs, freshness seal, and misc small aluminum bits. An aluminum liquor bottle neck wrap light green object). Overall, a lot fewer targets overall but attrubute that to half the run being in the tide line/surf wash during rising tide (again tge timing didn't work out for me to hunt while following the tide out). All in all, another enjoyable 3-hour run with this coil. I could swing this coil all day long. Love it's stability, sensitivity, depth, separation, coverage, and, of course, it's weight. Shame Coiltek felt the need to weigh down it's bigger brother elliptical to favor water hunting over terrestrial use, otherwise I would be considering that coil as well based on the 10x5 performance. Equinox finally has a winner smaller coil with adequate swing coverage now.
  17. I took the 10x5" for another spin for a couple of hours at a small park that I pounded for six mounths last year and hadn't returned to. I drive by this park almost daily and was curious about it because I never see anyone there except a few dog walkers and wondered if there was anything still there. I had cleaned out most of the upper layers of modern trash and clad but there's still tons of iron so I decided to dig any non-ferrous targets just to see what's there. I ran the stock Park 2 program with Horseshoe on, iron volume reduced, sensitivity 16-18 depending on EMI, FE2 6, and Speed 6. For the first hour I mainly just got iron targets. Then I got a larger signal bouncing from about 12-32 with lots of iron grunt and figured it was a large iron bolt falsing, but the 30s kept popping through fairly consistantly so I decided to dig. At about 6 inches down in a 2 inch diameter hole (we can't dig plugs in parks here) were 7 coins dating from 1968 to 1999. In fact everything I dug was yesterday was at 5 inches or deeper, most of which had iron targets nearby. I'm sure I had hit most of these targets with the 11" coil in the past but didn't dig because of the iron sounds and probable masking. I did get quite few nice sounding squeakers at below 8 inches, but couldn't dig them because of park restrictions, so the 10x5 does go deeper than I thought it would. Near the end of my time there I was in a heavy iron patch near and got a pretty clear high 20s tone. I thought it was probably a bottle cap but I was digging all non-ferrous so I went for it. At about 7 inches I found this ladies locket watch. I have no idea how old it is, but it was an interesting surprize. Below are shots of the "Hoard", all dug targets, and a close up of the watch.
  18. Would like some help please on a specific coil for my TDI Pro,i have the option of buying this brand new Coiltek 6'' Mono coil which was of course specifically designed for the GPX range of detector,the GPX Mono coils do work very well on my TDI Pro as i own and use most of them on the TDI. Has anyone specifically used this small 6'' Mono coil i am looking at using it most of the time because i am using smaller coils more and more due to the problems that i am hving with a broken wrist that i had from a bike accident decades ago,does anyone have any thoughts on this combination please.
  19. Apparently these kinds of interviews have been occurring for a couple months with various detector experts (and dealers) around the world. Except for a post buried in a thread (credit to Dances with Doves for calling my attention to these), which I didn't figure would reach the full audience, I think this is the first post of these four episodes with Gerry which were uploaded to YouTube on the 18th & 19th of April. Basically each of the first three episodes covers the one of the new coils separately and sequentially: 5"x10" (~19 minutes), 9"x14" (~22 minutes), 15" round (~44 minutes) and a wrapup segment (~11 minutes). I'm posting just the first one as each successive one is linked by Trevor at the end of the previous. E.g. to see part 2 (9"x14" discussion) just move the video's scroll cursor to the end of part 1. I watched episodes 1,2, and 4 in their entirety and the first 15 minutes of episode 3. A lot of the general info is second nature to seasoned detectorists. But there were a couple tidbits and I like being reminded now and then of the basic principles.
  20. My good friend Larry S was proud to share some recent success using his Equinox 800 and the new 10" Ellip NOX coil. Notice how small the one just in front of the CoilTek, pretty amazing. Nice to see some of what other people find as some folks think me being a dealer, it's setup. Those who know me, realize it's real and I would never take credit from a customers success anyway. If you want to learn more about the benefits of the new NOX 10" Ellip 10x5" coil, watch this video: Time to get out there and get you some. Thanks again Larry for sharing your Success.
  21. I am impressed with it. It will my main coil this summer lake hunting. I like the razors edge tone when detecting. It is fast as it goes over targets. Depth is very impressive in my mild ground. I hate to say but my Anfibio Multi is the backup detector to my Equinox 800. Even with the 5x10 coil. I look forward to seeing what Minelab has coming.
  22. I keep checking for anyones results with the 10X5 looking for gold & so far have seen hardly anything! Hoping a dealer or other reviewer would have had time to use the coil for gold prospecting and again, had time to do a write up. I have had success with the 6 " DD on the EQ 800 and am wondering how the Coiltek compares?
  23. Just wanted to update those still looking for the new NOX 15" round coil by Coiltek. I just received a shipment of coils and have them in stock ready to ship. My 1st hunt with the 15" round was quite silverish with an 8 silver day. Nothing extremely deep (Idaho soils) but most coins were in the 8 to 9" range. I was able to lift the coil a couple inches off the ground and still get a repeatable signal. No it is not leaps of 6" inches on a coin size target, but I would think a buckle or cannon ball would be approx 6" deeper. Call Gerry's Detectors at 208-345-8898 to get one on its way to you.
