Coiltek coil depth

Post  staples61 on Fri Mar 30, 2018 6:02 pm

I've got a curly question
Which coil will get more depth.
A 14'' Coiltek elite or a 18'' standard coiltek coil ?
The elite would kill the standard coil on the small stuff, but would it get better depth?
Interested in what you guys & gals think.

G'day Staples

If the smaller 14 Elite is killing the standard 18 inch coil on the smaller stuff, is it not already getting better depth (on the smaller gold that is)?
Rule of thumb & all ground conditions/targets being equal, the smaller coil will, or should go deeper on the smaller gold, whilst the larger coil will, or should go deeper than the smaller diameter coil, as the targets become larger in size. (regardless of the two different type/makes/size of coils). Mind you, there will be other factors/variables, which also play a role towards being able to hear/pickup, a certain size/type bit of gold, found sitting in its natural state/position, at a certain depth, using a certain size/type coil. Some of these factors which influence depth on a certain type/size bit of gold, include ground conditions encountered, degree of mineralization, target size/type, orientation of target, depth of target, detector timings used, etc etc.

Kon.
Thanks for taking the time to answer my query.
I guess it comes down to going over gold producing ground with all your coils and using a variety of settings to maximise your chances.
Thanks

That is correct staples. By using different timings or different size coils, we basically reduce or decrease what we call the detectors "window" effect, increasing the chances of hearing that faint positive target signal response (regardless of ground/target size/type), that would otherwise have been missed, through using only one set of timing/coil combination.
