    Anyone using a NEL coil on thier AT Pro?

    Looking to get some unbiased reviews of anyone who has ran a NEL coil on their AT Pro. Also anyone who has ran a NEL on ANY machine that can tell me anything about the quality, service, performance of their coil. Does it change the VID numbers? Tones? Pin pointing?
    I am looking specifically at the "Big" coil but welcome any info on any of their coils.
    Up until my AT Pro purchase I NEVER even spent $240 on a detector let alone a coil!
    Thanks
    Steve

    Steve I to am looking at the NEL coils for my CM GT. Do a Youtube search for "NEL Coil AT Pro" or similar, there are a bunch of videos of people with the NEL. They seem like a good product at a nice price. For my machine there is only one sniper coil from whites, but NEL has a complete line (or so the site says) Seem like the best bet for me, but I think you have more options of other Aftermarket manufactures for the ATP.

    I would go with the 5x8 for the ATP, you can only get so much from a machine and I don't think you can do better than the 5x8 coil for an ATP. The 5x8 will pay for itself over and over. Not sure about a nel coil.

    I have a nel hunter for my at pro. Today was its second hunt. I have the stock coil and 5x8 by the way.
    Oh and snow sucks! Most targets were under 3-6 inches of packed ice and snow. Then another few inches in the ground. I was hunting a sledding hill. Hacking away I dug many targets. mostly pennies and the hopefull ring/pulltab. Yeah pulltab...
    What I learned was more important than the finds though. The coil performs excellent. Seems to take the subtle sounds of the at and takes them up a notch. For Instance... today I dug a few bottlecaps. Double checking the iron audio. It was correct every time. Even on a flattened cap it gave a soft grunt. Very subtle but it was there. I also had a solid penny hit with a grunt. Turned out to be a bottle cap one inch above a penny! I also did some air tests and noticed a few more inches in depth.
    The build seems solid as well.
    So all I can say is I can't wait for the spring....

    How is the separation of the hunter compared to the 5x8 or the sniper if you have used that at all

    Just got my nel storm in the mail today. Surprisingly lighter than I thought it would be. I'm going to get it out and test it tonight.

    I have only had two hunts with the coil. Separation seems to be like the stock coil. As the hunter is the same width, just a little longer. I do have the 5x8 which is a fantastic coil. It is Close enough to the stock coils depth, so i usually would use it all the time. Enter the nel hunter... In my opinion the nel widens the gap on performance, compared to the stock or 5x8 coil. Giving the user a noticeable advantage in depth and performance. So both now have there place. Nel for depth and 5x8 for trashy spots. Although I have a feeling, the nel is going to grow on me.

    Ok so it's snowing so not much field testing yet but here is some info.

    You can max the sensitivity without falsing away from EMI. I had no falsing away from my house. But when I tried messing with it in my house the wifi router made my machine go crazy until I stepped outside and knocked the Sen. Down two notches. After that it was fine. I did some air tests in the garage and here is what I got. I tested the storm in my garage away from my router but I still had to go one notch from maximum sensitivity.

    I recorded the results where I got 100% consistency with each pass and solid ID

    Stock coil. ___ Storm.
    Max Sen. ____ One notch from max.

    Clad penny.
    8" ___ 9.5"

    Copper penny.
    8" ___ 10.5"

    Nickel.
    7" ___ 11"

    Dime.
    6.5" ___ 10"

    Quarter.
    9.5" ___ 11.5"

    Results on my garrett ace 250
    Let me know what other info you want.

    It never ceases to amaze me that there is so much hipe spread about alternate coils.
    I have several detectors with stock coils that have found just about everything you can find with a detector.
    Most detectorist would be far better off upgrading there detector. Just my view from the 70's till now .
    Look at it this way, the brains are in the box and the coil is just a winding of wire. Frank...-

    I would be willing to bet some of those places you would have found more going back over with a small coil.

    It amazes me too...

    I have also been detecting since the 70's...I have a Bounty Hunter Raider from back then that still is a great detector...
    What amazes me is that some dont understand how more advanced a detector is today. The coils do matter. You need to use the right coil for the right application.
    Most people dont take the nessassary time to truly learn their machine... And I mean really learn ever single sound. I remember a time in approx 1980 that me and a friend started on a football feild and a woman came over to us to tell us we were wasting our time because two other guys had been there the last week detecting. They just cleaned all the new stuff off of the field. It was great for us because we spent the next month plus gridding it off and pull over 100 silver dimes off the field plus all of the other coins and jewelry.
    Take the time to learn your machine!
    And now how do you get the edge over everyone else... Get every single inch out of the ground you can. Good detector...right coil..."the coil matters"
    I currently us a Garrett ATPRO
