Help with nel coils
« on: June 20, 2014, 20:24 »
Hi everyone.
I see in another thread some people are happy with their nel coils. I wish to get more out of my AT Pro so I'm looking at a new coil.
I was wondering how much better people have found their nel hunter compared to the standard garret coil. Also why they feel it's better.
I also wondered what peoples thoughts are on the larger nel tornado coil. Which would be the better option, hunter or tornado.
All views are welcome and appreciated.
Thanks.

Mine is on the AT Gold, but i found the hunter coil great, I wouldn't say its better than the stock 11x8...  Just different.. 

Thats my experience anyway, the Sharpshooter on the other hand was far better than the stock 8x5"..

Thanks LazyTrommel. Do you think you'd try the bigger coil if you were to buy another or happy with the hunter.

I like the hunter because generally where i hunt its overgrown bushland (old house sites etc) But that bigger coil Tornado? i believe, would give some nice coverage and i would imagine depth..

Either way, NEL make (in my opinion) the best after market coils for the AT machines.. hell .. for most detectors... I own a couple for my Gold bug pro, and Teknetics T2.. they're much better than the stock coils.
They're worth the money..  I ordered mine directly from NEL took about 3 weeks to arrive....

+2 on the NEL coils, they come with coil bolt and skid plate, and very well priced for such good quality.  I had the Sharpshooter on the Vaquero, and it was an excellent small DD coil, and achieved excellent depth considering the size of the coil.  Bought mine off ebay, it wasn't listed, I just asked NEL to change the coil type and pricing at the checkout (costs a wee bit more vs buying direct from NEL).

Thanks guys. I would love to upgrade to a totally different detector to see how I go,  funds unfortunately aren't there. I can however afford a new coil and if that improves the pro I'll be happy with that. 
Not that there's any thing wrong with the pro, I just want more.
Will have to toss a coin to see which nel I go for.

Wonder how one of the Nell coils would go on a Tesoro Cortes?

Hi Gazza. Never actually got around to buying one. When ever I thought about it the money was never available so it's gone on the back burner for now. Sorry I'm not much help to you.
