Coiltek 15-inch ALL TERRAIN coil for the X-TERRA Series – Part 2

July 27, 2011 03:39pm

In Part 1 of my blog post concerning Coiltek’s new 15-inch ALL TERRAIN 7.5 kHz coil for the X-TERRA, I described the physical differences between it and two other 7.5 kHz coils available for the X-TERRA. In this portion of my blog, I will discuss the performance of the Coiltek coil in places I typically hunt for old coins.

Coiltek 15-inch ALL TERRAIN coil for the X-TERRA Series – Part 1

July 21, 2011 05:31pm

Coiltek Manufacturing recently invited me to help field test a new 15-inch ALL TERRAIN 7.5 kHz coil for the X-TERRA Series. Having been involved in field testing the first series of the X-TERRA Series for Minelab, and recognizing the number of X-TERRA users who had expressed their interest in a large Double-D coil, I welcomed the opportunity. I’m familiar with Coiltek products, having used several models on various detectors. So when I opened the box and saw the large, round, 15-inch Double-D coil designed for the X-TERRA, the orange color did not surprise me. Instead...

Large X-TERRA coil - The wait is over!

For several years I have been receiving regular emails from X-TERRA users asking, “When will Coiltek release a coil to suit my detector?”. We have listened to these requests and I am now pleased to announce that the wait is over!

In a collaborative effort with Minelab, we have produced a 15-inch ‘All Terrain’ X-TERRA 7.5 kHz (medium frequency) Double-D coil that is fully compatible with Minelab’s VFLEX technology.

Come on you harvest!!!

July 12, 2011 09:35am

With a really hot (English) April and May and then a damp June, and so far July, the cereal crops in many areas are somewhat stunted. Fields that should be full of golden waving corn are more emerald green in colour. So it looks like it`s going to be a late harvest for 2011. However, we detectorists often have a “Thin period” when crops are seeded until they are cut. Fortunately we have several kind land owners who own great swathes of ancient pasture, rough-land and pheasant coverts.

Finding Civil War camps and other military sites - Part 1

July 08, 2011 09:54am

Finding civil war camps and sites is the only reason I picked up my first metal detector. Digging old coins, artifacts and treasure is cool, but as a child, my favorite toys were the Marx set of civil war soldiers. I spent thousands of hours setting them up and playing with them. It was in the 1980s that I became a civil war reenactor. My first event found me staring at a frame full of relics and from that day I became obsessed with...
