Coiltek WOT 15" ????
« on: November 10, 2014, 20:10 »
Hello Friends,
I plan to buy Coiltek WOT 15" for Minelab Explorer SE, but I do not understand what is the difference between old style WOT 15" and new spider style WOT 15" and how they compare to Detech SEF 12"x15" .

Please give me as many details as possible.

In advance Thank you.
Any comment is much appreciated! :)

On the explorer series, go the SEF, (IMHO). It's as heavy as lead and you will grow muscles in your poop but in my experience it's more stable than the (old) WOT coil and not that much heavier. Cannot comment on the spider for that particular detector, but the spider rocks on the Sovereign elite.

Both styles of Coiltech coils operate the same Treasureman, the Spider is the later model having extra lateral bracing, they are available in 3 frequency's, 3,7.5 and 18.5 kilohertz, which one do you want to compare to the Detech?, I have the original 7.5khz and have had no problems, it is a great all rounder....cheers Colin.

You would be referring to the Xterra compatible WOTS which have the 3 frequencies built in (dodgy move by ML IMO for aftermarket sales), but any how I cant vouch for the Explorer series WOTS as I haven't used one but can vouch for the Platypus 12x8 from coiltek which I recently bought new from Brian...Cracker coil compared to the old original coil and also the X12 coil I was using till now.  Runs better on the beaches (haven't used it on land) and happy to run maximum manual sensitivity up higher away from the water without a murmur till you hit a target and also has much better target separation, and even the noise you get running higher manual sensitivity is more manageable with targets still booming through.

As mentioned, the only difference between the 2 styles is that the extra prongs are for extra support for the outer part of the coil (I call it the Dubai Palm design ....google Dubai Palm Island and you will see why).

I plan to buy this one : http://www.kellycodetectors.com/products/search-coils/1319-C040009/15in-all-terrain-search-
It doesn't say which frequency is it of. It says that it is just for Explorer and E-trac series...
So how would you compare it to Detech SEF 12x15 ?

Nice to here this...
Hope the new WOT would be improved too...

Just can't imagine if there is no improvement in new WOT, why is its price twice as much as the old WOT.

If there is any improvement, What is it?

Depends on what you are going to use it for,the wot coil would be good for the dirt & dry sand,original coil or SEF coil for the wet sand,
I have a 13in detech ultimate coil on the exploder & sov gt, great coil, light & a nice size but use it in the dirt only.
Looking at a NEL hunter coil for the exploder or sov at the moment,had one on a fisher f5 & made it come alive,still get good coverage 12.5x9.5 with great target separation but don't know how they would go on the wet sand.
Just my opinion on a few few coils that I have used 8)

Hi Treasureman, I see what you mean, your detector is a multi frequency machine so that coil you provided a link to would not be a specific frequency as the machine controls that. The coils I  was referring to are a fixed frequency to suit the X terra series, apologies for the confusion, have you compared the price from Coiltech here in Oz, don't forget to include postage......cheers Colin.

Hello,
Thank you for your advice about "Oz", but I did not get what you mean...
Could you clarify?

Oz is Australia Treasureman, I forgot you are not in the country, Coiltech is based in South Australia but has several outlets around the country, Google will be your friend, best of luck and let us know how you go.....cheers Colin.

Thank you guys for all your support and comments.
It seems new spider WOT coil is just untested by general public of metal detectorists, that is why nobody can compare it to similar size (12"x15") SEF coils. This situation is on all over the web, on American and UK forums...
Seems I have to test it first and compare :)
Good luck Friends ! :)

P.S. I'm from one of the former USSR countries.
