Hi just wondering if anyone has used the 10 x 5 commander coil against the coiltek, if so is there any difference between depth and sensitivity? Also on a 3000 would a mono or dd be better around Vic goldfield?

Haven't used the Commander 10x5 but had quite good results with the Coiltek 10x5 Mono on my 3000 when I had one. I also used the DD occasionally if the ground was hot or there was a lot of rubbish but in most instances, I found the mono to be great on that machine, esp for picking up the smaller gold around workings and in tight situations etc. For larger coils I'd probably tend toward DD but, in that size, the mono was fine.

No worries thanks for that I was tossing up between a mono or dd but all the feedback I have been getting is saying a small mono so might go with that.. I have a 14' dd that I run in mono mode and it works like a treat, finding a lot of gold with it but just s touch big for some workings and in heavy scrub.

The coiltek joey mono was my favourite coil on my GP 3000 in the old workings were the oldtimers had sluiced off the overburden & exposed the bed rock. The minelab commander 10 x 5 is a DD they dont make a mono version.

Good luck out there

G'day Auzcritgold.

You'll be splitting hairs to tell the difference in performance between the 10x5 Commander dd or Coiltek dd,whereas the Coiltek mono will give you about 20% better sensitivity over either dds in low to medium mineralized ground.Being a small mono though you will encounter higher levels of ground noise on a 3000 as compared to the GPX series,when working over the hotter grounds.Brilliant for when working exposed,bare bummed,slaty/rocky areas such as that in gullies,surfaced flats or creeks,but if you intend working over very hot shallow ground conditions,you can't beat the 10x5dds for quietness,sensitivity and penetrating depth.

Cheers kon61.

no worries iv used a 14 x 9 mono nuggetfinder and it worked fine on the machine so I'm tossing up between the coiltek 10x 5 mono or a 8commander mono, the ground I have been working has been pretty good

Hi there, Go the coiltek 10 X 5. It will get into tighter spots & the elliptical coils have a more sensitive heel & toe area due to the windings of the coil pinching tighter at those points. Great for poking its nose into cracks & crevices & uner rocks & bushes.

Good luck out there
