Minelab SDC2300 Coiltek Coils is it a good fit?
We purchased a new Coiltek 14x9 mono coil to use and test on one of our Minelab SDC2300 detectors.
Udo and I have been testing and using it for a few months. Here is a video of that testing
The benefits we see lost are:
"SDC 2300 PRODUCT NOTICE & WARRANTY STATEMENT
Recently, Coiltek has introduced aftermarket coils that can be retrofitted to the SDC 2300. These have been developed independently of Minelab and Minelab has not had any involvement with these coils. Minelab cannot and does not provide any information or support regarding the use of these coils. Minelab does not guarantee the SDC 2300’s performance when used in conjunction with these coils.
The SDC is manufactured by Minelab in a standard configuration designed to be robust and offering easy to use high performance; any changes to the product may alter its performance. Further, such modifications may materially impact the ability of Minelab to support and warrant your SDC 2300. The SDC 2300 is not designed for changing coils nor for use with other coil sizes and specifically any damage which is assessed by Minelab or its Authorised Service Centres (ASCs) as having resulted from such modification will not be covered by the Minelab warranty.
All Minelab detectors are engineered in Australia, manufactured to exacting standards in ISO 9001/2000 quality accredited facilities, and backed by up to defined transferable warranties. Review the full Minelab warranty period, terms and conditions on our website."
We do not believe the Minelab SDC2300 Coiltek Coils are a good investment for people that have purchased the SDC2300 for the purposes it was originally designed.
Here is a link to the Coiltek Page that has the video about how to install the Coiltek coils on the SDC2300 if you want to see the process.
Some love using the new Coiltek Coils on the SDC2300 others hate it?
