Ray, you keep saying this but do you have any proof or is it just "sour grapes" on your part.

no sour grapes here mate-Rohan doesn't sell directly to me for reasons only known to him-but i do sell NF coils, personally I don't give a rats so long as its an improvement and a desired step in the right direction. I never received a TRIAL coil for customers to try--go figure.

what do u call it Robert--catchup-- lol! lol!

when a company brings out a coil and someone else is trying to replicate the same size--spare me will u.

I will give credit were credit is due, NF seem to have a lifetime warrantee, a coil shits itself u simply send it back and they replace it or rectify it-not that I have seen any rectified coz its far cheaper to throw away a $50 coil than have someone try to fixit.

to manufacture a 17 x 13 coil is as good as a 13" coil wouldn't u agree--just a bit easier to whip around the spinny but the vast majority don't have spinny so why would u bother.

I would have thought a 9" round would be the way to go but how many coils can u swing...only one.

if u r patch finding then the 30 x 7 is a very good coil although a bit bulky, and then if u r lucky enough, then out with the 14" to clean up.

Ray,

I have one of those "dark grey" NF 30 by 7 coils but I only ever used it once on a trolley looking for an extension to a patch we found on open, flat ground.

Other than that it's gathering dust. Do you reckon they're any good, other than being a rather large "sticky out" kinda coil? Have you had any reports on 'em?

I know this from personal experience.

to manufacture a 17 x 13 coil is as good as a 13" coil wouldn't u agree No. technically it's equivalent to a 15" round.--just a bit easier to whip around the spinny but the vast majority don't have spinny so why would u bother. If there's no need to bother, why does Trevor make elliptical coils? I wonder if he has a new elliptical in the works?

I would have thought a 9" round would be the way to go but how many coils can u swing...only one.

Since Minelab won't license their chip to anyone then Rohan and Trevor have to stay on top of their game to supply state-of-the-art coils to non-GPZ7000 machines.
I am looking forward to the comparison tests of the two new coils so we can gauge which is better.

NO PROBLEM..

why should minelab licence their chip--theres a lot of prospectors out there who cant get there head around the 14" coil and still carry on about the weight factor.

I am not sure what a bigger coil will do anyhow..go deeper---good luck digging that hole.---then theres the cost factor, say $1650.00 yeah right.

Have I missed something? Is there a new NF coil out?

I am still using the elite on my 5000. I have not taken it off for quite a while to give it a fair test.

I have been picking up gold with it, some very small pieces 0.10 to 0.20 grammers but nothing to brag about yet!
I did dig a nice bullet from 600mm in a creek bed and was happy with the depth but not the target!

The fact that it is picking up these small size targets is cool, but I own a sdc for that type of work. The sdc knocks this thing for 6 on small gold IMO. It is a very sensitive coil though.

I have noticed that if I auto tune the coil just off the ground ( like you are ground balancing )it runs way smoother and is not effected by emi as much. Right or wrong it is making a difference. This technique has turned some frustrating days around for me. It is still picking up these small bits doing this.

My only complaint is the nice sticker is coming off and it wont look good in any photos if I keep rubbing the top of the coil when finding my bits!

I am not going to go into the brand war. For the record I own both.

If there is a new NF coil I want one! If either of you guys can sort me an 11"mono for my sdc then I will be your best friend for life!

Cheers
