    Cool. You got yourself a valentine. I choo-choo-choose you. Mine didn't come with such nice gifts. Hope you can used yours soon. Same with Nes. I got $150 with gift cards from this weekend. Maybe I can think to buy the storm or tornado come late spring once I get to try the sharpshooter out.

    Oh man! Bummer!
    Thats one thing I always fear when ordering things. Hopefully your return go's well.
    Out of curiosity, what coil did they send you?

    I did test mine right away. I do believe since mine was special order that it had less chance of being the wrong item. I did however get a coil cover for my stock 8" that wont fit and I have to return or exchange. I will see how this one works after a few hunts and I might get a tornado or storm and never use my stock 8" again. Good thing they accepted their mistake tho.

    To reopen this topic, I was wondering how everyone has been doing with their NEL coils. I have heard nothing but good things about them other than the occasional griping about falsing by someone obviously ignorant on how to use their machine. As I posted elsewhere, I am purchasing the Attack and Hunter coils for my X-Terra 705, and going with the new all frequency version.

    Any feedback would be terrific!
    Thanks
    Equipment:
    Minelab: CTX 3030, GPX 4800, X-Terra 705.

    The correct way to say it is that they are ignorant how a metal detector works in general. I do believe all machines have their occasional falsing from iron. It's just inherent. Idk how many times I have read a good target over a larger (iron) washer due to it's shape. The manual for my new white's and the manual for the garrett both (completely different manufacturers and no same parent company like Technetiks and Fisher and Bounty Hunter) state about hearing bottle caps even tho the majority of the mineral content is iron.

    I have heard a bit of good things to them as well, both before and after I got the coil. Just yesterday in a FB group I was seeing someone posting about a new NEL sharpshooter they received and the 'veteran' members were saying about it working really well. Air testing with the stock when I first got the FIRST machine I didn't have a problem with iron next to a good target. BUT that was an air test and the iron didn't have a chance to oxidize and halo in the ground near the target. Sure I did pull up a large cent next to iron with the stock CC, I do believe the DD sharpshooter helped out significantly. I too did an air test when the NEL arrived and it was still too cold to go outside and it performed much better. Maybe once I put on the NEL, I was finally able to see the limitations of the machine?? Once I saw a target a foot away from a big iron fence post that was cut at the top of the concrete footing that would only appear when I cut the swing short over the target area, I learned of the machine's limitation on recovery time.

    To get a comparison with the White's10 DD I might have to literally do a side by side comparison. The white's has a faster recovery time (...and I do quite often hear it false off iron in one direction), but it is a round DD. The NEL sharpshooter is more of a butterfly DD shape so the transmit coil and receive coil seem to have a narrower width. This being said, the White's right near a cellar picked out a few lantern pieces within the iron however the reading were unstable but always in the non-ferrous range. I have a few cellars by the side of the road so I may actually do a legitimate side by side comparison at a place I can carry both machines to and do a real test. Maybe it would be YouTube worthy for those interested in DD and coil shape AND NEL coils.

    Overall tho, I will still reiterate that a NEL coil was a good investment. Possibly the same as a SEF coil. I just went with NEL due to needing a push-in connector and they offered it. Plus as you heard as well, the good reviews. The coil does look solidly constructed. The ears for mounting were tight to fit the shaft into. Which reminds me that I lost the damn nut for the new machine somewhere. I have to either buy a 5/16" nylon nut at HD or buy a new set online specifically for an MD. Ugh. I'd laugh if someone questions why the nut needs to be nylon. (NOT Teflon Dan/Dave/Todd. lol).

    Getting my Sharpshooter for my F75 today. Already have one for my E-trac and love it. Hope the F75 will find an epic find today. The best finds I have ever found with the F75 was with the 5 inch coil. Hope this coil goes a little deeper to find some more goodys. Going to a site I have pounded to death. However found a slq and v nickel last time and hope to find some more. THis house is 1840. It is a big mansion type home
