I’m running the 11” elite, using
* B: less than null, Mode 3 around the GT, low (around 30) THS-A, gain 4ish, or
* B: null, mode 3, very high THS-A, gain as high as possible.

They both one the smaller end of medium coils or high end of small coils. Best medium spiral wound coil on qed Elite 14". Best older type nugget finder advantage 14" if ground noisy with spiral.   excited

I suppose do we call a 12" Evo a small or a medium coil.

Anyway I am interested as to how many QED users are detecting with the 12" Evo FW mono as I have been using the 8" Commander on the QED while leaving the 12" Evo on the GPX.

Therefore any advice on what QED settings have worked best for you with the 12" Evo?

Going by the number Read Times so far since I posted I would say the 12" Evo is not a popular coil for the QED.

I think a 14" coil would be mid range Gary.

Yes I would agree sd220d Digger.

Also the FW or Spiral monos are hard to pinpoint small targets with but do have the edge on sensitivity to small targets compared to the standard bundle wound of similar size.

Sd220d Digger do you have a QED for yourself and if so have you a preferred coil for it?

I have a 17 x13 Evo, and don't like it on my QED at all
My go to mid sized coil is the 14" Elite, it's very good.

Thanks Mal.

The CT Elite appears to be a more popular coil for the QED than the NF Evo.

I'm still using a 5000 Gary. My next detector will be the Qed.
The Qed has come a long way and we can thank Howard for the hard work he has put into his baby,  the Qed.

Hi Gary,
I have a 12"Evo but I prefer my own coils on the QED if I have a favorite commercial coil with the QED it would be the 14 x 9 Evo or the 18" Elite.

Thanks SD & IB for your replies.

I am hoping to get out for a detect with the QED & 12" Evo sooner than later.

Has anyone used the COILTEK 6? GOLDSTALKER MONO on the QED? I would think it would be more sensitive than the 8" Commander a lot of people seem to use.  What I am chasing is sensitivity to small gold at depth in mild ground.

Phrunt, the Coiltek 9" Elite is an excellent coil on the QED, although it is quite susceptible to hotrocks and concentrated ground noise. The above and below ground balance adjustment test does eliminate most spurious signals. It has become my coil of choice for scrubby or confined areas.

Hi Reg,

Thanks, the NZ Coiltek dealer doesn't stock that particular coil, I'll look into it, I am guessing the 6" mono is bundle wound and the 9" being flat wound makes it more sensitive than the smaller 6" to small gold, I've found the same with my 14x9 EVO Vs JW's NF Sadie, my EVO destroys his Sadie in it's ability to find shotgun pellets :)

Thanks for the advice,

Simon

Hi Reg.

How deep have you dug for gold with your 9" coil and the QED ?

Have not been out much recently due to the weather and other projects, so have only found a couple of small bits at shallow depths, but the signal was very sharp. Have found lead and other junk at quite impressive depths but never bothered to measure any.

I asked about this coil because I thought that you were a big coil, big gold specialist.   happy face
