Yes the new one, I ordered it as soon as I heard they were to be released.
I too am looking forward to seeing how it performs

First of all let me say what fantastic service from LP (leisure promotions) less than 24 hours from order, to delivery, with email tracking update from courier.

So my new coil is here, it is so much smaller than the standard coil, in fact it is a little smaller than stated, coming in at 9.5" inches, by 5 1/8", but I think they probably weigh near the same. Coiltek coils are well known for their build quality and weight.

The supplied coiltek bolt is a bit of a let down, and could really use a couple of washers to spread the load, I have used my Nox bolt instead.

Pictures to follow, and a field test if I can find somewhere to go.

Glad the coil has arrived safely...Is that coil supposed to compete with the standard Nox coil or the 6" version?

With the Standard Nox 800 coil being an 11-inch round Double-D coil and the small coil a 6-inch round Double-D coil, with this Coiltek being 9.5" inches by 5 1/8", although only 1 1/2" shorter it is significantly narrower so it actually fits in nicely between the standard and small coil. So could be handy where due to limited space or trash you wanted a smaller coil then the standard coil but did not want to use the 6" coil due to the limited ground coverage - interesting.

I look forward to hearing how it performs in the field.

In theory it should give only marginally less ground coverage than the standard coil but provide better target separation. How depth compares is yet to be seen though?

On the FB page for one group I sometimes go with a member posted a photo of the 15" Coiltek coil he had just got for the Nox and in response there were a couple of replies saying how good they were. One user I know fairly well and knows his stuff said it was unlikely that he would put on the original Minelab coil again.

Sounds promising.

I see a few videos are appearing now showing these new coils, and from what I see the results look promising to say the least 👍

The results do seem to be encouraging, but one comment I have seen more than once is that the coil lugs appear to be no thicker than the standard ML ones? These were in reference to the 15" coil though..

Given the issues with the ML lugs, what are your thoughts on this?

"Given the issues with the ML lugs, what are your thoughts on this?"

Considering the fact that my Nox is now over three years old, and nothing has broken in all that time, I see no reason to worry myself over this supposed issue, I still have the opinion that this fault is user related in some way.
I personally have never seen a broken nox coil up close, but I suspect the damage is caused by over tightening the coil bolt.

Also you have to remember that these are Coiltek coils, and not Minelab, so why would anybody think that they would be the same?

Just my opinion of course, others may have a different view.🤔😁
