Found some chump change and two more rings with the new 7" coil

With the Nokta Impact running 5Khz and in deep mode using the new 7" concentric search coil, it catches the deeper clad dimes and quarters others have missed at a well hunted school yard. Plucked out two rings, one found was marked being 800 silver and the other just silver plated. Also dug up a beaded bracelet and half of a heart locket.

It's the perfect size for some precision hunting. Works excellent. Dug some 7" plus targets, one being a double ended farm plow blade measuring about 10" long.
Surprised how well it worked with all modes and 5,14 and 20Khz frequencies. Gain could be turned up full bore, settled in hunting at 85%. Pinpointed nicely just like a concentric should.

The Impact with this coil ran like a champ, very smooth operation, felt like you were cruising in a plush Cadillac.

A key word you used, Sven, is 'perfect' and I have to agree. :thumbup:

The impact, like my CoRe and Relic devices, has an excellent circuitry design that lets me find a lot of missed targets where others have searched quite a bit. A combination of very functional depth-of-detection with most search coils for them, and a great ability to respond and recover to nab keepers that have been masked or partially masked from those who searched before me.

The detector's designed performance abilities are now complemented with this excellent 7" Concentric coil. I had some distractions yesterday that kept me from heading off to some ghost towns where iron nails and rusty tin are very dense and challenging. I only got in some successful Coin Hunting working the fringe area of an old park. I still do the bulk of my hunting with the Impact at 14 kHz, but quickly shift to 20 kHz when I get by the Makro Racer users that share the same frequency. I do opt for 20 kHz as desired for certain sites, just like putting 5 kHz to work in the sparse-target open areas when I can chase some missed higher-conductive coins that might be located a bit deeper than most folks can reach.

Usually I have mounted the 5X9½ DD or standard 7X11 DD for such tasks, but this 7" Concentric is behaving exactly like a decent Concentric coil should and I am getting more than satisfactory detection depths in cleaner areas.

Totally agree, and that's partly because it is a Concentric design and provides some if the advantages some of us want over a Double-D designed coil. I knew from the start with using Nokta detectors, I was wanting a smaller-size but effective and efficient size smaller Concentric coil. It could be anywhere in the 5½ to 7" size, and I prefer a 6" to 7" Concentric coil for the bulk of my detecting, and this new 7" Concentric mated to the Impact is just about as 'perfect' as you could want.

A big enough appearance to let you feel confident you're getting enough workable coverage, yet small enough to handle working in and around typical trashy environments in most urban Coin & Jewelry Hunting applications. You get all the audible and visual benefits a decent Concentric coil can provide, such as a better talent for sizing-and-shaping targets, quickly and accurately Pinpointing located objects, the wonderful ability to stand in one place and work the search coil from any direction and get more of a uniform response that a DD coil can't provide. You get the consistent response from a left or right sweep a DD can't do, and when it comes to handling those pesky crown cap type bottle caps, you get the perfect handling we have come to expect from a quality designed Concentric coil.

My saved programs in my Impacts, as well as Relic and CoRe models, have Di3 at '99' Gain at turn-on. I reduce it if it is necessary to gains stability, but most of the time I am hunting away from some of the disturbances found in urban settings and I very, very seldom have to reduce the Gain setting. Most of my other modes are saved with a Gain of '95' at start-up. The 7" Concentric is very stable, and as you mentioned, the 7" Concentric handles all search modes well at any of the three operating frequencies chosen.

Yes in deed! The Impact/7" Concentric team work great. Now I'll click and post this response and I am headed out the door to a couple of old gold mining era ghost towns and work this new 7" Concentric coil in some of the nastiest iron littered sites that abound in square nails of all sizes and rusty tin, from small decayed shards to can-size. Today I'll know how the 7" Concentric works in those sites where I have used all the other Nokta coils on the Impact so far.

No doubt in my mind that this 'perfect' 7" Concentric coil is likely going to handing things quite well.

Good finds there. I'm jealous of your ability to use a concentric coil. It comes in handy at times but alas, the CoRe doesn't have one... I think.



Active detectors: Fisher F5 , Fisher F19 LTD, Nokta Fors CoRe, Makro pointer and way too many coils.
Previous detectors: Bounty Hunter Discovery, Fisher F44, Omega 8000 V6, Minelab X-Terra 705

Unfortunately, today, you are correct. The 7" Concentric is so very impressive on my main-use Impact that it leaves me a but jealous there isn't one available for the FORS series. One for the CoRe and one for the Relic. Maybe, if we are lucky, we could get enough consumer demand/requests for this exact same size and design 7" Concentric wound and calibrated for the two equally excellent FORS series models?

My oldest son stopped by and I showed him the new 7" Con. on my Impact and how well it performs. His main-use detector (he has a couple of lower-end detectors for his kids to use) is the FORS CoRe. I have four friends, including Oregon Gregg, who also have the CoRe as their only Nokta detector, and they would also like to have a similar 7" on the end of their operating rod.

I travel with several detectors on my back seat, including at least one CoRe and one Relic, and I do use them with the coils I keep mounted on them, but lately I have been grabbing the Impact w/7' Con. maybe four out of every five stops I have been making. I am sure part of that is because I am evaluating all I can about the Concentric coil's performance with the Impact, but, it is also because it feels great and works awesome everywhere I have traveled so far.

Try incidetectors, located in Turkey but ilhan provides excellent customer service.

Why isn't the 7" coil here yet? I want one too. Was going to wait till spring but now I want one. I would rather buy it here.
