Nice one Filthphil, what weight and depth if you don't mind me asking

The 12 inch Evolution attached to my 4500 has converted it to one mean machine (some minor setting changes) for both size and depth.
There is one downside, that being digging those very small pieces of junk. Results speak for the them self.
Whether it is checking out crevices, heaps or gullies, the sensitivity is amazing and worth the dollars.
The evolution coils seem perfectly matched electronically to the GPX series at least. Be prepared to take time finding those very small targets. Listen carefully to your own detector for those subtle threshold changes.

I think among my prospecting mates there is one coil used way more than any other ....the Nugget Finder 12 × 7 solid. I have found over 1000 nuggets with it and never go prosecting without two of them and a couple of spare skid plates.

So I find it incredible that Nugget Finder have chosen not to make this model in the new Evolution Series.

From reports the 14" x 9" is more sensitive than the previous Advantage ellipticals so it probably negates the need for smaller sizes? The Advantage 14"x9" & 14"x7" were also popular sizes. I preferred the 14" x 7" while a mate of mine preferred the 14" x 9".
Whatever size they made someone would want something different.

Sounds like you have had some success. Can you share your setting? Mine appears to be not playing the game and very unstable in Golden Triangle.
Tried loads of different setting but does not run quiet.

Cheers


Love metal detecting.

Just got back from the Whipstick and I can run the Mono minelab 12" and 12' DD minelab very quiet but the NF evo 12" coil still is very noisy.

Odd.

What settings are you using?
You typically need to wind back gain and stabilizer when using the new flat wind coils.

Drop your Rx until it is stable. 9 is still 1 above factory preset which is too high for a lot of areas.

I just got back from running the gpx4500 and NuggetFinder Evolution 14x9 for a few days on some very flogged ground at Rye Patch Nevada, got this .55 gm at 8" deep. Was very happy with this, its a porous nugget so a hard find to start with. As for small stuff I picked up a #9 birdshot at 1.5" also, was amazed at the coils sensitivity, I have a hard time using anything else of my machines since putting the NF Evo 14x9 on. There is no need for the Sadie this coil leaves near nothing behind from grain to gram sizes. 1497455887_rye_patch_nugget_front.jpg

On bad days I drop my gain as low as 7 and stab on 10. Still ping tiny bits, .1,s

Also try "DEEP" on the front end, when I did this, I could up the gain a bit more.

My max depth on my 14x9 evo is 9 inches on a 2.5 gram nug is that deep or does that suck

Every nugget is different.
Just because someone gets a 1g nugget at say 8" doesn't mean all 1g nuggets will be picked up at 8". Some might only murmer when scraped across the coil, yet others if flat and solid enough and sitting right might come in a 10"

It all comes down to the size/shape and folds/features of the nugget.

And then you have your timings being used and the ground it is being used on, so what depth one user gets will vary to what another user gets, and then there is that users experience. An experienced detectorist will hear things that a newbie would not pick up on such as the faintest variation in the threshold. This will cause them to "get more depth"

That being said, 9" on a 2.5g with the 14x9 evo seems pertty good to me. The evo coils are the best out there, very well made and made to work on your detector. The bloke who builds them really knows what he is doing and has been at the top of the coil game for a long time now.
