I didn't know that either, and I'm glad you told me about the coils AU.
I'm glad I bought this DFX I always wanted one but could never afford one at the time, It was only by chance I was offered it very cheap due to someone been short of money for Christmas and needed quick cash.
I intended on moving it on to make some money but pleased I kept it, there a dam good  machine.
If any of you want a good set up for UK pasture land let me know OK, I spent months tweeking these settings on the standard 9.5cm coil.
And yes it pick up gold lol even bracelet, which I tryed earlier after seeing this post.
I just cant wait to get my hands on the Spectra 3Vi, any of tryed one yet?

All the best

I read that gold is hard to detect in a straight line so to say, but bunched up, it rings a good tone.

Thanks for that advice,
Jim

LOL!  Bracelets are hard items for sure.

NO Discim!

Try to detect them when there bunched up in a pile.   Better , Eaaa?

A ring of the same gold type and weight will be detected with no problems.

I think the individual links of the chains cancel out each other.

I recenty ordered the Whites 1400 Eclipse, which according to the spec should be better in iron infest sights, ive asked Jimmy from Whites whos detected in the uk many times, for his advise on setting differences between that and the standard 950 coil.

I will let you know the outcome

Regards

Dave, The 300ltd coil is deep and on one of my worst site i have seen coins come out at 12" with it,
If your GND reading is above 75 then that may be the 1400 will start coming into it's own.

Not that it can't be done but bracelets and small chains can be a bit of a pain to detect for a number of brands.  I guess ultimately it may boil down to getting a good machine then getting to know what the machine is telling you.  Also especially for the gold you will have to be willing to dig the trash targets likek pulltabs since they also fall into the jewelry range.

Thats right String, The reason i use Whites is because i saw the test done with a Whites on a very very fine 18k chain
and on my sovereign with a little joey coil and then i tried the other 8 coils and it just would'nt see the chain,
the up side about changing brands is i get to hunt all the old sites again. Grin Grin Grin
and now i'm finding stuff again  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

That is a very good point.  Sometimes when a person changes brands it's like breathing new life back into some of those old sites.  2 years ago I hit a hunted site and my whites sniffed out a 28" italian silver chain that the chain was fine enough that I was afraid to put it in my pouch or pocket so since it was intact i just wore it home.

Hi
Not been on the net for ages due to work, Since we last chat i gave the 1400 coil a good testing on the DFX. It has its purposes and in the right conditions its a winner providing you put in different settings and thats my guess why its not been such a hit in popularity like the DFX in general.
Pinpointing is good considering its a DD coil, just lisen out for the second hit which is a more louder positive sound and that where the object lies bang in the middle just where the lead comes out of the coil.
The only draw back is the wight , its upsets the perfectly balanced DFX thats supplied with the factory coil, makes it feel more like a Minelab quattro etc.
So in my opinion its good for past permissions, finds the standard coil missed.
