Hi Guys, my best coil on the extreme is a very old n/f 17/10 fiber glass coil 12 years old mono killer on small or larger nuggets, biggest nugget 7.61ounces smallest 0.01, The 5000 i run a 14x9 n/f or a 12x7n/f, biggest nugget 39.1gran at 15 inches, I have tried bigger coils but it just dont cut it, maybe when i work out the new settings it will be better, I dont get to the gold field enough to work it out, Both detectors well and turley paid for them selves, Ron,

Thanks Peter, We are going bush next thursday let you know how we go,  Ron.
