Nope, but an offer from NuggetFinder Christmas Special, but don't know if its only available to customers who have purchased a Coil off them/dealer in the last 12 months. Came with the details of their Big new 25" coil. Of course you can only ask......

They look really good, don't think it will be too long that personalised coils are fairly common. Interesting what the members would have on their own coil???

Coiltek are great performing coils.

I guess I should shoulder the blame for this.  Circa September 2011.

Never seen a control box with any design on it, I guess it never took off

So long as it does not add to the price of the coil...I mean it won't work any better aye?
Would make it easier to ID if it got pinched.
Then again if I wanted to make a coil or detector look pretty I would have done it myself by now.

It's only an opinion....but if the focus is put on marketing instead of product development then it's a slippery slope. Please note I said "if".

Really, what next. Agree with tony p, develop better coils, not pretty gay ones. I can see the wannabees thinking the colours will make them find gold faster and deeper. Not.

I've used Commander coils Coiltek coils Nugget Finder coils and the only difference i've found is the weight, that's why i use a much lighter spoked Nugget Finder.

It doesn't matter what brand you use.  A pro detector operator once said to me... You're only going to hear what your detector is putting out.

WISE WORDS.

Always keep an open mind as past experience is not an indicator of new design.I'm currently testing a Detech coil.Even though my 14" Elite has been glued to the shaft for the last 3 years and served me well my main coils are nugget finder.
Each coil has its purpose depending on the ground type and area and no one coil gets it all.
Today we are back to an 8"mono commander for a particular job.

G'day Deutran,
Just wondering if you've had any experience with the Detech 8" Mono? If so how would you compare it to the Minelab 8" Commander?

I do like that the Detech has a strong looking shaft mount compared to the Commander coil,but performance wise,what do you think?

Cheers...Dave

Very good little 8 inch mono coil sharkbait, especially for chasing the gram/sub gram gold.  Have a look through coil section & see the write up on the 8 inch Detech mono coil, under the Detech coils thread.

Hey Kon,that is a great write up,just what I was after T25

Could be a Detech 8" mono heading my way,methinks T06  Q32

  G'day Sharkbait  ,M8 I've no doubt the 8'' mono would be a great coil , but so is the 8'' DD Detech coil , I swear by it .Mainly for its accuracy in iron reject and for its depth capability .The other day I worked it around old reef workings ,and had been flogged by other detectors ,with the 5k in s/ extra and tone at 60 ,trying to target sub/ grammers ,and even with the iron reject set on MAX  , and dozing the coil ,the response on even those '' GOT TO DIG SIGNALS  '' that the 5 k '' WOULDN'T REJECT , things like shot pellets ,half worn away boot tacks ,those curly end bits of horse shoe nails  ETC , still get the odd flaky tin of course ,which I don't mind digging up for those targets , '' even if I reckon there still junk '' as it reiterates my faith and confidence  in these detectors and DD mode  .Smile

G'day Hugh,
Damn,i went and ordered a 8" Detech Mono from Nenad at PhaseTechnical,as soon as i'd read that review from Kon V41

I Don't think i'll regret my purchase somehow..coupled to my 4500 it will be put to work.
Thanks for your post about the 8" DD coil,it certainly gives me more food for thought  T06

In reality sharkbait, both mono & dd each have their place & serve a purpose. I have never needed to use a small DD on a Minelab PI detector, for discrimination purposes (not that discrimination with a small DD don't serve a purpose), but I have never had the need of using one, specifically for that  purpose when chasing gold.
Where a dd instead of mono configuration comes to play (as I do believe & have encountered in the past) or serves a better purpose, is on/over ground, high in mineralization or variably changing highly mineralized soil. Neither do I believe using half a DD winding as a mono coil, when I have full mono wound coils at hand.
Keep in mind, a mono coil over/in low to average ground mineralization, will almost always, defeat a similar in size DD counterpart, over the same size target at depth. More a fitness for purpose thing.

G'day Kon,
Bloody hell,my post sounds like i'm blaming you for rushing in to a mono coil..i apologise,that was totally not my intention Shocked
I've always been a mono user,and I suppose my naivety is showing,having not experimented seriously with a DD.

Like you say,they both have their purpose,and maybe I need to chuck on a DD now and again just to see the difference.

Cheers....Dave

I know you weren't blaming me Dave, for you were after the performance characteristics/workings of a certain size/type mono coil.  I just thought I'd add on to what Hugh were saying about the DD part through my own experiences.
BTW, the smaller a coil is in DD winding configuration, the better its discriminating capabilities will be. This applies to both a pulse induction unit, or on a single frequency VLF for that matter.
