The 17 x 11” Elliptical coil has and is proving to be a fantastic all round performing coil. Released to provide a well balanced coil which provides the prospector with good maneuverability in tight areas it continues to be a preferred coil of use for a lot of operators.
With its elliptical shape it provides good coverage over the ground and the ability to search in and around the terrain and is also complemented in having excellent depth and sensitivity capabilities. When nugget hunting it can pick up the sub gram pieces and ensure that pinpointing is made easy with the tip of the coil.
It has a centre mount shaft mounting position with an 8mm nylon nut and bolt for extra strength. Also, being of the solid coil design it can help when grasses are long to push down close to the ground and not be hindered by sticks and the like stopping the swing. This coil is a great choice for excellent overall performance and balance and continues to find gold in many of the world’s gold prospecting regions.
Operation hints & tips:
To say that the AI coils are sleepers is a huge understatement. We have heard that these coils are proving to be a coil of choice in a lot of areas around the world as detecting areas become more susceptible to external interference. This interference comes from Electrical towers, mobile phone towers, electrical storms and other detectors. It is also prevalent around built up areas which are close to detecting sites. It will allow the operator to run with a smooth threshold when a DD or MONO coil is extremely noisy. Its performance ability is only just behind that of a DD PRO however it can sometimes become slightly noisy when the mineralization content increases. These coils are best run on the more mild ground but perform excellently when encountering external noise. These coils were designed for the SALT LAKES of Western Australia but continue to prove their ability in many fields around the world. These coils do not need to run in cancel mode on the newer detectors as the coil is doing the work of cutting out the interference. These are best run in DD mode and will also work well with the discrimination function. Sensitivity is excellent and depth is very good so this coil is a good choice for many hunting areas.
