Hi Guys,

I have a simple question. What would you guys consider the most all-round (and I use the term loosley) coil as the unit we're buying comes with the 11" DD searchcoil. Being in Ballarat, I can expect heavy mineralisation in the area and am trying to get my head around all the info about the different coils.

I guess the question is what do you guys use most around these parts and in short, why?

Cheers,

Nature Pete. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

The coiltek 14"DD pro was an excellent match to this detector,notably quiet with good depth.

G'day Pete.

Here goes my opinion.I found that the tan 14 inch round Coiltek Elite Pro DD coil is a good match to the Gp series machines as is the Commander 15x12 DD (as standard general purpose coils) especially if your going to be working in Hot ground.

Cheers kon61.

I am using GP extreme, and my go-to coil is an 11 inch commander mono.

but i also used 14 DD pro "elite". On a test patch it performed beter in a mono mode than in native DD, so i mostly don't use it anymore.

Anyway, consider using a medium mono. My pick would be 14" NFA or 15x12 Commander from Minelab.

If you really must have a DD i would go with 15x12 Minelab DD.

Thats right, i only figured that out after i got the 14" coiltek one.
