Thanks Mal.

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

Gary.
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.

Regards, Ian. happy face


Ian I have had a chance to compare the sensitivity between my 12" Evo and a friends 14" x 9" Evo on 3 different sized nuggets a  0.19g, 2.35g and a 23g and for me the 12" Evo got the nod slightly on the smaller and larger one and of course ground coverage going to the elliptical Evo.

The Russian X-Coils appear to be finding a place in the aftermarket coils for the GPX & QED.

I am hoping for a coil comparison video over an un-dug targets to display any advantage to the mono X-Coils.

The NZ fella "phrunt" is maybe our best chance for a video with a GPX and now that he has a QED.
Although his ground in NZ, from what he has been saying, is mild and not as mineralised as our Aussie ground.

Ian is there a certain size from your own built coils a favorite on your QED?

Hi Gary,

I concur, I find that my 11” elite is a magic coil, small enough to be great on small stuff, yet able to pick out big ones at depth.

It is the coil that spends the most time on the end of my QED.

Thanks for your opinion Goldman.

I also had an opportunity to compare a round 14” Elite (camo colour one) against my round 12” Evo using the same nuggets and the 12” got the best on the 2 smaller ones and matched the 14" on the largest one.

And it is my opinion that the Evo build wise is a stronger & more solid coil than the Elite.

Hi Gary,

I also use my 15” round spoked EVO, which I used almost exclusively in WA this time last year. Over there the 15” provided more ground coverage so I left it on most of the time. I have used a 8” commander in both WA and here in the GT and it is a really great coil, however as I said, my 11” elite is my fav at the moment.

Thanks again Goldman.

I think we get attached to and feel confident with a certain size coil whether it round or elliptical as it is producing the most gold.

I am a bit obsessed with keeping a diary of all trips, all finds and with what coils on the detectors that I have owned over the years.

Therefore the 11”DD had the most use and finds in my SD days, NF 18” mono in my GP days and 12” Adv & 12" Evo with the GPX and so far my Commander 8” mono with the QED.

Hi Gary,
Sorry for the delayed response have just got back from W.A. family trip no detecting though to answer your question yes the prototype 12 x 4  spends most of its time connected to the QED.

Okay thanks Ian,

Interesting to me is that the ratio dimensions of your 12 x 4 prototype as I recall Eric Foster mentioned that a long time ago.

Back in my early days of detecting using my modified SD2000GPM by I.Jones from WA, I recall another idea in regards to coil construction by another SD2000 modifier who produced some coils with straight sides and rounded ends, which at the time I thought was a good idea.

Gary that was me I have been playing with the design since then just the wind style has changed and the exact ratio refined Howard seems to like it.
