Contribution to global warming by Australia. Australia has one of the highest per capita emissions of carbon dioxide in the world, with 0.3% of the world's population it produces 1.4% and rising(not the .08% the  finders forum dope "Inhere" claims!) of the world's greenhouse gases. Australia also has the highest per capita emissions in the OECD, with 26 tonnes of greenhouse gasses being emitted per person every year.
Australia's C02 emissions rise for the 4th year in a row.

Here is the new addition to the Nexus range of aftermarket search coils for the Minelab, QED and other gold prospecting metal detectors.
The 21"CC is equipped with the same dual cable and Mode switch box to enable the coil to cover every possible performance offered by Mono, DD and Concentric coils simultaneously.

To mylab; Here it is.
This video was ready yesterday, but had no chance to get it uploaded.
Same targets on the same day just after the 30"CC was tested. Got the two coils together for this test.

Yes thanks and was interesting viewing as you do go about your testing regime in a very thorough manner including all of your other GPX test videos. And your latest in ground test using those Roman coins with the 21” and 30” CC coils on the GPX. Also of particular interest was that the 30” CC coil was capable of a response on the tiny 0.5g Australian gold nugget buried at 6” depth and with the coil then raised above the ground a further 3” which is impressive for such a large coil on such a tiny target.

I also got electric interference test coming for both 21" and 30" coils and air test with 50 cent Australian near the 50kV power lines where I made the video.
The two coils are already in Australia. There will be new vids from there soon.

Don't bs Me, seriously you need to check your price. Carbon is not expensive even in small qty , i cant imagine the carbon would cost more then $100USD per coil. I by this stuff all the time , and kevlar in small qty.

Also , freight should not be ~$450 - Box them up and send 10 at a time and that should drop five fold at least. I got a an overflowing pallet of car fenders from the UK for $1600au. you can fit a lot of coils on a pallet....

In another forum you said this was the cause of the high price... please refer to your own name .

you might sell some coils around the 1K-1.6K mark. good luck anywhere higher. I believe a major will pickup the design and beat you to the punch.

At 4 K, YOu would have a coil/detector that goes deep but needs a really open area to operate... For the money investment as this coil,  potential buyers WOULD SELL THEIR GPX AND BUY A GPZ! THIS IS THE KEY POINT!

Also , please note this message is intended to express my opinion on the commercial reality of this coil as a detectorist and buyer of detector bits.This  is not an attack on the coil or it's developer. i sincerely wish you the best Dontbsme.

Make one, come forward and compare to my results and then demonstrate how things should run. Unless you do this there is nothing further to discuss.

Dontbsme All i was saying is the commercial reality. the comparison to gpz price wise is FACT.

The other commercial reality is this: when other manufacturers see the performance and price they will come to same conclusion... they can sell them at half the price of yours and still make good margins.

I run and have run businesses at profit for private equity, stock market listed and now my own business. I understand basic economics along with sales and commercial management /analysis. I have chosen my business to run, why would i setup to build coils. why would i waste my time.

As i said , my message was not an attack . you can continue trying to sell coils at these prices and maybe sell 15 a year. or drop the price , scale your manufacturing and sell hundreds at a reasonable price and margin. your call, good luck

Well put Eski.

This has been my exact thinking with the likes of the X-coils which some have gotten their noses out of joint over, why i do not know.

From my understanding they start at around the $1,000 mark. We have a few choices of aftermarket coils and as an example there are coils in the 14/15” range for roughly $400. Is there anything physical about the X-coil that warrants to be priced two to three times the price of other aftermarket coils? From the reading they are portrayed as being superior to what else is available but to the point of such a large price difference?

I totally agree with your thinking of being priced right against units sold. That just makes good economic sense.

Once again, ill state that i for one i dont judge others for their purchases. There are purchases ive made with other hobbies some could question!

Detech have been trying to undercut every other company's prices for 20 years now, but all those other companies are still in business and still in lead.
That's the commercial reality of cheap products - they are also low quality.

Dontbstme, Having tested the Dtech coil that you have called 'low quality', I can assure you and others that it is very well made, and you rubbishing a respected brand says something less than positive about yourself. You have been far from convincing about your coil, and elusive on pricing.

Hi Dontbsme, I was not referring to Detech. Whilst they are making a concentric coil they may not be the only players looking at this.

It makes sense for ALL companies that make coils to make these coils. and when they do , they will need to make sales . to do this they will price to what the market will accept.

perfect example is spiral coils. NF did the 12 inch in the advantage range, then coiltec then detech then NF released their range. guess what will happen with concentrics? i'll wait for the NF version.

If you don't accept this that is fine, i have nothing more to say.

I will pull you up on one thing though. Please explain why you think Detech are low quality with comparisons to coiltec , nf and minelab coils. This is the least you could do as a coil manufacturer.  your don't see the brands i have mentioned saying the others are low quality.

I have tested Detech against NF and ML and they are not as good IMO. I also examined the construction of Detech against NFand NF designs are superior in every way.
Detech use a DD coil cable that is a poor quality copy of the Minelab DD cables and they use that same cable for their Mono coils as well. A dedicated Mono coil cable is something Detech do not use in any of their coils. That's another step down.

I am not rubbishing the Detech brand as stated by Reg Willson, this is within his expertise to rubbish people and products.

I am only stating the construction facts and the results from them.

When any product is cheap there is a very good reason for this and the mentioned above facts are self evident.

Detech are good products, but only to their price level and not comparable to NF, Coiltek and ML. From the 3 leading brands I like NF the most for their very original way of building coils.

The price for 30"CC is 2495 Euros and for the 21"CC os 895 Euros shipping included. It is well stated on my web site if you bother to read.
I also have demonstrated with high accuracy what my coils and detectors can do and if they don't then folks can get their money back.
I am yet to see a single proper video test of any Detech product for 20 years now. If this is what you call convincing...............

I would like to see Detech or any other brand for that matter to communicate with this level of detail, rather than using manipulative and propaganda tacktics.

NF use the same screen as everyone else, a Graphite paint. What I like about their designs is the way they put the coils together. Really simple and effective. They also use this very flexible and yet very durable plastic in their coil designs, making it super resilient to harsh conditions. I am willing to bid that NF coils would be the least to fail from all other brands offering plastic based designs.
NF coils are also the lowest weight IMO from all plastic coils on the market.

Candigger, the exchange rate for the Euro to Aus dollar is currently 1.62, which means your 30" coil is AU$4608 plus freight while the smaller coil is AU$1450  plus freight. When I stated that your larger coil was more than twice the price of the Detech version, you denied it. Well, it is considerately more than twice the price.
You come poncing over here, treating us Aussies like mugs, calling me vulgar and threatening me with legal action, and think you can convince us to buy your product by using 'giggling' Matt, the 'radar' man to promote your over priced coil, and then rubbish the opposition product.
Well, guess what? No one buys your detectors here, and very few will likely buy your coils.
PS Get a haircut.

On my web site is clearly stated that all Nexus products are delivered free of charge.

2495 Euros is 4041.90 Australian if your rate is correct. Also 1450 Australian for the 21"CC is the final price including everything. I deal with import/ export duties, the customer cares about nothing else other than paying the retail price.
