 Rick has said that he wants to use a large mono for prospecting in WA which is why he chose the NF 17x11 mono when he did the  detector comparison test.
If he wants to go this way then  he should borrow a 18"NF advantage  or the 25" NF  3 spoked mono  to try which QED.users report work well with the QED.Some coils don't work well with the QED  but their are many others that do.

It would be handy to find out what coils dont work well ?

Or list the ones that do work well  happy face

All mono's I've tried work on the QED, just that some seem to work better than others.

Some I didn't like were for a number of subtle reasons, and these coils may well suit other people. 

So here are the one's I have found to work well

Commander 8"
Commander 11"
Coiltek Elite 14" (Outstanding Coil)
NF/Advantage 18"

Reg Wilson says the NF/Advantage 25" also works well

I see that Rick has reproduced this post on PA but lacks the courtesy to link to it here!Poor show Rick! If this practice continues then the topic will become  visible to registered  members only.

I think that all ML compatible mono's will work on the QED but as you say some will work better than others which has always been the situation  to some extent with other *detectors as well. The front end of the QED is very different to any ML or  other Pi so this may explain  why some coils perform better than others?

 It might be worth while for Stinky Pete to send BW some of the largest Detech mono's to try on the QED or if Stinky  Pete has time to try them himself.
Just a thought,

Hi Gary,

All the standard ones and my test unit also has the Beach Mode.

I am over this shoulder recovery time projects to do and still another 4 weeks of not doing anything VERY boring indeed I am sick of watching DVD's.

Good thanks Ian.

I have now received my QED back after having the latest update including the Beach Mode.

Now look forward to testing it out on my goldfield over same ground comparing it to previous settings with my 8" mono.

Also plan at some stage to test further my QED with my larger coil arsenal, NF25", 24"x12" Advantage round monos and a couple of NF18" monos, one a 3 spoke round 18" Advantage and the other a lightweight 18" round 4 spoke fibreglass prototype I purchased off NF that was designed to match the SD2100 18" Kevlar mono. Back when I purchased this 18" round prototype I had an opportunity to test it up against an 18" round Kevlar and the proto came out on top as far as I was concerned. I have used it on my QED and it operated without any problems and boy is it lightweight weighing 691 grams compared to the 18" Advantage at 834 grams, the 24"x12" Advantage at 803 grams & the 25" Advantage at 1030 grams.

Btw all of these larger coils have previously operated well on my QED.

Gary.

In regards to Nuggetfinder Evolution coils I only have a 12" Evo which works fine on my QED although trying to pinpoint the exact position of smaller targets under this type of coil can be a nuisance.

From reading posts by other operators with the QED the Coiltek Elite and Detech coils, also of the same type of Flat Wound windings as the Nuggetfinder Evolutions, then they appear to work fine as well.

The QED is being sold with a Detech 11" Flat Wound for its standard coil.

I expect I am only repeating what the majority here already know.

As mentioned above in my last two previous posts in regards to my arsenal of large mono coils for use on the QED and the flat wound monos and the difficulty of pinpointing the exact position of small targets with my 12" Evo then I had forgotten about a Coiltek Probe that I had received in a deal when I purchased a 2nd hand GP several years ago which I had kept after parting with the GP.

Therefore I was curious now how the probe might work on the QED so I setup another in-house in-air test using several different sized and composition targets. The 22cm long 2.5cm diameter probe had no issues at all operating on the QED with sensitivity to all targets depth wise out from its end and out at the same depth to all targets sideways along half of its length.

Since I viewed a video of BW unplugging a coil and its lead from the QED and plugging another coil and lead into the QED without having to switch off the detector then I would be able to use the same procedure with this type of pinpointer probe while out on the goldfield, especially after opening up a deep hole using a large coil.

A pin pointer saves a lot of time when it comes to finding small targets once out of the hole as does not having to switch the detector off then on again.
