whos in vic been around the longest. I feel Coiltek Maryborough been there since day dot together with Bendigo gold world shop then now been taken over by miners den. Miners den is the biggest they are like the kmarts. Coiltek are great service and they know their stuff.
Coiltek mb first detecting shop in the gold fields as far as I know they go back to the early 1980's.
What are people opinion on the retailers we have in vic.
Are there anyone better then others.

Sorry yellow mellow, but there were many detecting shops before Coiltek. They are 'Johnny come lately' compared to many of the early ones. Finders in Dunolly, and there was one in Wedderburn even earlier than Barry Johnson. There was even one in Geelong before Coiltek. Aussie Disposals were selling and hiring Whites detectors in the late 1970s.

Yes we bought detectors C.O.D from Barry always had good dealings with him as well as Rowan bought many of his coils over the years.Shame Dean closed up Dunolly but still see him from time to time.
Lately bought detectors and gear from Coiltek as its basically closer and they are happy to negotiate deals or price match.To be honest buying online is actually more expensive at times than dealing direct with the shops.

Got most of my stuff from Luckystrike in Geelong. Always answer my enquiries, unlike most others & great service as well.

As the saying goes, vote with your feet.

For me its the lads at Coiltek maryborough are best also helps the gold fields are in their backyard too. It makes it handy if you need something if you are detecting in the areas. Other notable mention is Darren and Lee Anne at Lucky Strike now in Geelong formerly Gold and relics in Clunes too very good service and very good knowledge with the gear too very friendly.
