Yeah, my Sharpshooter took 13 days.. And the tracking upon delivery said it had yet to leave Ukraine lol..  ohwell,  well priced, awesome coils. i'm not complaining.

Hey LT..lets know how the Hunter goes on the ATGold...where did u get it from?  Want to get a larger coil for mine.

I've had all my NEL coils delivered within 3 weeks from date of order.
Keep in mind our/their holidays are not always the same and they can have extreme weather with winter snow that closes air ports.

Today it's Cairns "show day" there will be no mail delivery......nor tomorrow Saturday or Sunday.........not even if you could track it to your local mail sorting centre just down the street.

Hopefully..... fingers crossed there will never be a monopoly/sole Importer of NEL coils in Australia........the price will go up........and I might get the blame "again"  ???.........an incident with FTP Fisher detectors come to mind. :)

I have never had trouble communicating with NEL, they accept PayPal.....$25 freight for one coil, cheaper if more are purchased in one go........and 3 week delivery........totally acceptable by me.......what more they also forward date the purchase date, so there is no loss of warranty period.

They have their logo on the box, even on some nifty reusable/wearable packing material. :D much appreciated.

I have no problem waiting, they're quality coils...   If we get a dealer in Aus. Fair enough, I would still rather buy from the source..

I bought mine direct from the dealer, and i leave my Hunter on the AT Pro, its found my oldest coin so far  ;D love the coil, may as well sell the 11" Garrett coil, its out of my hunting kit now, but then again its always a backup  :-\

Had no problem at all with communication, the coil was well packaged and posted very quickly.

I may buy a bigger one, maybe a Tornado, then again i have an itch for a Tesoro of some sort so i may wait until i have scratched it before making anymore decisions  ::)

I hunt the lot, not much interest in hunting for spendables though.

I might just get the larger CTX 17"x13" coil for the beach, the CTX is the best beach hunter out of all i have. The SD2200 i have the 11" and 14" for that, so that will do that one for now, and the AT Pro has the 12" NEL,  the stock 8.5 x11 i dont use now and the a 5x8 for heavy trash and working tight scrub areas.

So it looks like i might get a Tesoro next and see what all the fuss is about and pick a NEL to suit that.

I have no problems with my hunter in the amongst the Mullock heaps.

I prefer the AT Pro with the Hunter to the CTX in the hot ground.

does the hunter punch deeper than the stock coil i have the sharp shooter but tossing up between hunter or tornado  and im guessing the tornado would punch deeper again any info or comparisons between stock vs those to ie how much more depth you can get

It does punch a bit deeper, the pinpoint is out a little and you numbers change by about 2 points, you soon get used to it.

Spot on I have the Hunter 7.5khz on my new xterra n holy dooley awesome sensitivity n alrounder great. I also have a Ctx 3030 with a couple of coils but still enjoy the xterra with nel .
Pinpointing I find I use a different method by centering the target then dragging coil back till only just reads on screen then I know the target is about one inch in front of coil.
This coil should be a standard issue LOL.

I just drag the coil back until there is no sound then do the same forward then side to side, gets in bang on everytime.

Just ordered and received my first Nel coil from Ukraine. It's the 3 kHz 15 in Attack coil. I intend to use it for beaches. Does anyone have any experience with it? Not a hugely deep coil for very small objects but great area coverage.

Yep for the 705 : ) Here are some air-test results against the stock coil.  Interestingly, I asked Nel what they recommended for the beach, and this was their suggestion.  I had asked about the Tornado or the Big coils, but they said this would be better.  I guess it is better for High conductivity targets, and larger deeper targets.  It is however, not an especially deep coil, and it is more for surface area coverage.  I think it would also be good on land areas with very little trash - and I may end up using it more in this type of environment.  The below air tests were indoors with a fair bit of interference, so I would expect another couple of inches in a low EMI environment where I can crank the sensitivity up a bit more (beyond a setting of 20).  I did go to the beach briefly, and found that near buildings and lights I couldn't lift the sensitivity above 20 (out of the 0-30 scale), but further down the beach away from buildings it was stable at 24, and I felt it could go higher.  Bearing in mind concentric coils tend to go deeper than DD coils and the comparator here is a medium frequency coil, so I think this is a reasonable result.  There is a video of the 15 inch 3 kHz coiltek coil on youtube which gives another 1.5-2 inches on similar targets, but it is an outdoor test and they don't provide the sensitivity.  I would guess there is not much between them.  One tip I noticed with this large coil is that it might help to keep the batteries freshly charged.

Wos
Unusual frequency choice for beach work. Unless there is a high number of high conductivity targets IE silver and copper coins.
I have used my Coiltek 3khz on salt sands before but I can tell you now the 15.75khz would be a better choice.
The higher frequency hits better on the goldies (modern coins) and on gold rings which are in the low conductivity scale. The higher frequency also handles mineralization better which allows better sensitivity in wet sand. The higher frequency also sends more info to the machine on targets which can fool the lower frequency. You can pick screwcaps by the warble tone off the edge of the target and pulltabs by the multiple tone as the higher frequency picks out the holes in the tab. As for depth difference the 3khz will punch deeper in the dry, that's what that frequency does do well but the tradeoff is you dig way more crap which you cant discriminate out as you will lose gold and many coins.
You will find the 3khz deadly as a relic/predec coil in parks and bush, don't get near power sources though as it will send the coil nuts.
If you are going to have a serious crack at the salt, better invest in a 15.75 coiltek WOT, play with sensitivity and ground balance a little positive and you will have a really good beach outfit.
ps if you are not in delta pitch (99 tones) you are not listening to the machine, with 3khz the numbers will fool you so you will have to rely a lot on tone. and especially check targets from multi angles as you will be surprised on the difference.

Thanks mate that is very useful information. I do tend to hunt silvers rather than gold (I'm more of a dry sand detectorist) but I was leaning towards using this coil in parks. And your thoughts certainly make me think more of that option. Most of my time is spent in parks, but as you can imagine Sydney has some pretty trashy parks!  And I try and cut small holes so I don't leave a trace. The big coil will need some getting used to with pin pointing.
Thanks for the tip on the tones as well, I have been fixated on 4 tones since I bought it.
The learning curve is very interesting with coils. I reckon I am still learning with the stock coil after 8 months, I go back to parks done a few months ago and turn up much more stuff. A lifetime of learning with each coil.
