Available late 2017/early 2018, according to the GoldSearch website. I'm surprised that it's taken so long, especially since the SDC has been so successful in the marketplace.

I'm astonished if the 10 x 5 size is correct, as it seems too close to the SDC's 8" to me. I'd have thought a 12-14 x 7 or thereabouts would have been the most logical size to offer as a step-up. GoldSearch also says "Search Coils" though, so hopefully there's going to be a range of sizes coming.

Very amateur release of these coils. All the hype about the coils and the accessory pieces to fit coil, no where is there any mention or display how to connect coil to machine.
Is there a hidden extra cost involved?

Thanks for the update Mike, Trevors explanation was as clear as a windscreen on a a WA goldfields dirt road after a thunder storm. (What are the rosary beads for?)
Something isn't sitting right here, time will tell?

G’day Peter,

“Rosary beads”.     Q25    Q35

I had to blow the picture up and the ball chain does look like rosary beads.  

Cheers.  

Mike.

Hi Nightjar.
The release of the coils and accessory pack is going as planned. More information being posted each day/week leading up to the on sale date.
The coils will fit via a custom made shaft attachment which was designed by us to ensure once fitted it was easy to change between our coils

Why not reveal upfront how your coils are fitted, how difficult and how complicated changing back to original Minelab coil/setup?
Will the warranty still be valid?
How many would go out and buy a new car before finding out if it has an engine?
Seems like you want the sales first then drop performance etc bombshell, come on lift your game?

Thanks for your reply Nightjar - certainly some probing insights there.
More information is being released daily/weekly so just keep an eye out for it - Its entirely up to you how you wish to interpret the release but do you not think we have done our due diligence for the coils to work and fit.

Here is a post i placed on another forum:

Feel free to ask questions as the more you know the better you can make your own decision whether you think the new GOLD EXTREME coils are for you.

from this thread the main queries are:

Why aren't the new coils water-proof? We thought long and hard about this and decided to not epoxy fill the 10x5" coil due to extra time and weight from this and essentially if you wish to keep the unit water-proof then keep the 8" coil on or revert back to this. (time and more materials mean more $$$) For those that hunt the water this (8") is all you need. But you never know what the future holds...

Warranty - is it voided? the short answer is no but as Gerry stated in a previous reply as long as there is no misuse or damage made during the conversion. Like any product under warranty - if it is deemed a fault of the user then it will not be covered. our coils come with a 2 year warranty - if you have an issue with our product we deal with that separately - if you have a warranty issue with the SDC unit itself revert the unit back to standard and send it back to Minelab - simple.

Does the conversion require any hard modification to the unit? NO. there is no cutting, slicing, cracking or any type of firm modification required. Just undo two hex screws, undo two flat head screws, help the plug around the corner in the shaft and drop the coil away - then attach our shaft piece using the clamp and screws we supply, wrap the cable around the shaft like a GPX unit or any other treasure detector, plug in and screw up the plug collar, install the Coiltek cover over this area and use the hex screws you took out before to tighten up the cover over the plug area. turn on and go!

Why does the cable wrap around the shaft and not go in the middle? We didn't want to complicate the install. I am sure even Minelab would say that getting the cable up the shaft and around the elbow of the unit is tricky and requires a cap and ball chain to pull it around. We supply a cap and ball chain in our attachment kit so you can get the unit back to standard whenever you want. Essentially we didn't want to have a user make the cable go up the shaft every time they want to change a coil, its far easier to interchange coils like we have made it.

How does the shaft work? It has been designed to fit straight in to the carbon shaft once the standard coil is removed. the holes line up and the clamp we supply fits to help keep it in place. one of the main benefits of this shaft attachment is it now makes the unit around 4-5 inches longer so if you are 6'2" or there abouts the unit is now extended and when I hunt with it I no longer feel like i am stooping or at risk of stepping on the coil (figure of speech!) We will have a full attachment video coming out soon which will help guide you through the fitment process.

So in short we have thought long and hard about this set up and certainly spent a lot of effort creating the right shaft attachment. Of course no one is forcing anyone to buy the coils and if you think they are not for you then this is perfectly fine. Coiltek is all about providing more options for the Minelab Detectors as this is what we do and I for one am excited to see these coils get out into the market and start to provide the user with more coverage, more depth, more opportunity and hopefully more gold!

Fair enough, that now finally explains where you are coming from. Wasn't difficult! Very Happy
