NEL Hunter 12.5x8.5" Search Coil (Garrett AT Pro)

The Hunter Coil is designed to search on land heavily littered with iron such as habitation sites, beaches and parks. The coil is unusually light for its size at only 490 grams, which makes it easy to search for a whole day! The coil has excellent maneuverability and sensitivity to large, medium and small targets. This coil is superior to standard coils in depth by 5% - 30% (depending on metal detector model) and in ground coverage between 25% - 50% (depending on metal detector model). It is recommended as a replacement for standard coils.

The Hunter Coil is fully submersible, body is filled with epoxy resin and additionally has a black protective coating that is used for the protection of marine boats, and it makes it possible to use the coil without a coil cover. The coil copes excellently with high and medium soil salinity. Recommended for professionals and amateurs!

    • ★★★★★ NEL Hunter - Changed Everything for Me, in a Great Way! What a Fantastic Coil

    Review by Gerold on August 15, 2016

    Two weeks ago, I ordered the NEL Hunter coil (12.5" x 8.5"). This was a replacement coil for my stock AT Pro DD Proformance 8.5x11" coil. I've now got a good 10+ hours on the coil, and feel confident in the review. My time includes both land and water experiences.

    First off, when I unpackaged the coil, I was quickly reminded of how cool it was to get a coil cover WITH the coil instead of having to purchase it separately. Second, when I connected up the coil, I noted there seems to be a bit more length to the cable. For folks who are tall or have a longer than normal detecting rod, this might be of use to you. Once connected, I went outside and threw an assortment of coins, gold rings, silver rings, and other rings on the ground. I immediately was satisfied that the response time wasn't altered any, and liked how hard the coil seemed to hit on the quarters especially. Quarters on edge with the stock AT Pro coil often were just a blip. This coil seemed to result in a bit strong signal. The signal strength / depth became apparent in the parks I usually hit. Very quickly, I realized I had to notch down the sensitivity by one notch. I simply was going too deep for what I usually prefer (just the top few inches in the modern parks, to avoid the trash in the fill dirt). This was the first noticeable difference. It's definitely got more sensitivity and goes a bit deeper than the stock coil.

    Next I realized my stride was PERFECT. I constantly felt with the AT Pro's 11" stock coil that I was stutter-shuffling along. I always felt I was having to slow down to match my swing coverage with my small shuffles. The extra length on this coil completely solved this problem. Swinging never felt more comfortable! The extra coverage also was noticeable. I definitely was covering more area in less time. In a two hour period, I'm usually able to cover a specific amount of lawn at these parks. I not only covered more, I recovered more targets. I was astonished how clear the coins were coming through ($8.50+ in 2 hours with $6 in quarters); the wiggle method works better with the NEL coil than it did with the AT Pro's stock Proformance coil. The coins were always exactly at the tip of the coil, never slightly under it when under ground. This resulted in faster recoveries.

    I felt like I was literally ON FIRE finding things and making great detecting coverage. As a result of the extra time I had when I completed the final stretch of what I normally do, I spent another 10 minutes in a final area. I pulled a wedding ring set. Greater coverage = more targets. Couldn't be happier with this purchase. Even underwater, the signals were loud and clear. I also didn't find any appreciable difference in the swinging underwater compared to the AT Pro's stock coil.

    Buy with confidence.

Questions and Answers

    Q: Is this coil more accurate or easier to use than the snake coil?

    A: This NEL coil is a great coil. Since it is bigger than the Snake coil, it will go deeper. It is easy to use and is pretty accurate.
