September Winner’s Story
WONDERFUL WOT I have been detecting for a few years now and have always been a bit of a slowcoach. I often go out hunting with a mate and it is usual for him to cover many times more ground than me. Sometimes being slow and thorough is a good thing but for recently dropped modern coin hunting I wanted a faster way to cover more territory and reap the rewards. For these modern coin hunts I use my great old workhorse the Minelab X-TERRA 70 as it’s light, precise and a pleasure to swing.
I was very pleased when I learned that Coiltek had gained the rights (the first ever to do so) from Minelab to develop and market a new, bigger coil for the X-TERRA range of detectors and I got straight on the phone and put my order in. On the release day I was at their doorstep and purchased a new 15” 7.5Khz DD WOT coil.
I soon learned the benefits of this nice addition to my X-TERRA, it was sensitive, light for size and the TID numbers were spot on. Within a fortnight of part-time hunts it had paid for itself in coin finds. At the beach it helped me cover larger areas than I had ever done before in a typical 3 to 4 hour session and being waterproof I had no worries if I wanted to do some shallow wading.
However, I mainly I wanted to tell you about 5 park hunts over a month with this special coil. All were 3 to 4 hours long. The 1st hunt netted $68 in coin, and some silver jewellery. The 2nd was at the same park and I scored $107 and a 5gram 9ct gold ring. The 3rd was at a new park and I bagged $50 odd and a 4.9gram 22 ct gold earring. The 4th and 5th were at the another park and brought home $132 and $258 plus silver jewellery. $258 in coins had my coin bag straining at the straps with the weight but put a big grin on my face.
Coiltek’s Wonderful X-TERRA WOT works for me. NSC
You can find the full line of Coiltek Manufacturing’s Minelab metal detector coils at Radioworld, your authorised Coiltek dealer.
Further details will follow, but you can see the sneak preview here.
It was a pleasure to have some important visitors last week here at Radioworld. Rob Freeman from Minelab Americas, and Jack Summers from Minelab Canada, were at Radioworld for business meetings, and to see the staff here at the store.
Clive Clinyck, author of some of the best books on metal detecting, also came by to meet with Jack and Rob.
We are very excited about the success of Minelab in Canada, and about being recognized as Canada’s #1 Minelab retailer.
