Hi,
I have a 5000 and am thinking of getting an 8" coil, just after some feedback from someone using one and which one should i be looking at for small gold with the GPX 5000?

1)Coiltek
2)Minelab
3)Nugget Finder 8x6"

thanks David

G'day Dal1934.

Most the current line of small coils by any of the three major manufacturer's today,will do a good job of cleaning up the smaller and tinier gold below the (1 gram) mark.The thing that you really should be asking yourself here is,what type of environment you mostly intend on prospecting over.Example;If your search is in amongst rocky or shrubby terrain,you'll find that small ellipticals,duck and weave better between obstacles,than any small round coil could do. Elliptical coils also offer better ground coverage than round coils of the same width,and give off a slightly sharper more defined signal on targets and tiny gold,than what round coils do.If your search is strictly on shallow,open,flats (basically obstacle free ground),then an 8 inch round will go deeper on nuggets that start exceeding the gram mark,than say a 10x5 or 8x6 could. No real easy answer to your question.As "horses for courses",so to "coils for soils".

Cheers kon61.

Wise choice Dave.Cant be beaten on the tiniest of nuggies at remarkable depth over shallow ground. As for maneuverability through tight sections of ground,its second to none.
