Could you tell us about the 12x6" X-Coil prototype ?  thanks

Sure, It's a combination of flat wound and bundle wound litz wire, it's thicker than an EVO coil because of this.  I've only taken it out twice since getting it but both times I've got gold in heavily flogged ground.  It handles hot rocks a lot better than the Nugget Finder EVO 14x9 I usually run.  I am looking forward to my QED arriving, I think it will be a good combination for our mild soils and small gold in NZ.  I'm not sure if I'm allowed to link to posts on another forum but I've done a report on both my outings with it that you'll be able to read if you google it.

and here is a video of it on a .4 gram nugget still in the ground before I was sure it was a Nugget

Hi everyone,

I have split the ‘JP review” post as I believe the xcoil discussion has moved away from the original intent of the post and that I believe the discussion re the xcoils deserves a thread in its own right.

Cheers Goldman

Good idea Goldman and then even placed into the Board name "Detector Technology and Electronics and new detectors" under Detector Coils.

Thanks phrunt for the pics and video.

Any chance of a comparison video between your 14x9 Evo and the 12x6 X-Coil on your GPX using the same settings?

Gary.

I've been meaning to do that but haven't got around to it yet, the weather has been a bit wild here so I got my X-coil so I've not been out with it as much as I'd hoped.  I've got a QED on it's way soon so I'll do a comparison with that and the X-coil vs EVO too.  The best thing I'm finding with the X-coil is its ability to handle our hot rocks better than the EVO, how that will translate to Australia I don't know, perhaps work better in hot ground than EVO's.  Possibly due to it being a hybrid of the two windings.

Welcome aboard Phrunt (Simon)

It will be interesting to hear from you about how the Kwed operates in NZ, and what you think of it.

Cheers!  smile

with your "12x6" X-Coil prototype"

is it actually a prototype and not a full production model ?
I wonder what made them try a flat wind and bundle wound combination.

NO GPX video tests of the X-Coil being compared to other brands of flat wound coils of same size so there is NO advantage to the X-coil.

mylab WRONG!!!!! I can can tell you for sure that the X coils are superior to all others I have tried, and that's a lot. I currently have 3 X coils. 12" x 6"   10" and 15". Making the claim that you have simply makes you appear silly to those that have tried or own X coils.
May I suggest you at least try an X coil before canning them.

Hello 6666,
Thanks for your question so NO.
However, I did watch these two videos comparing a 12” X-Coil to a NF 12” EVO.

  
  

Then for me I would stick with an EVO.

You must hear how much quieter the X-coil is running, sure both hit the target about the same in this instance but the Evo is much noisier.  If you're looking for tiny nuggets having a quiet coil is a real benefit.

Mylab, NO, you haven't tested an X coil, so your information is not personal, whereas Phrunt and I both have X coils, as well as Coiltek and Nuggetfinder. Do yourself, and us a favour by testing an X coil yourself before venturing an opinion.

No the 12" X-coil is mono spiral/flat wound, not concentric type at all

I have Detech, ML Commander, Coiltek and Nugget Finder coils for my GPX/QED, I also have a big range of X-coils for them, I much prefer the X-coils.
