Euroace coil (28cmx22cm) on an Ace 250?

Post by Frenchieboy » Wed Mar 20, 2019 8:53 am

This may sound like a silly and very basic question but here goes anyhow.
My wife has a nearly new (She's only used it once so far from new) Garrett Ace 250 which she is very happy with and will be getting a new set of wireless detecting headphones to go with the machine for her birthday on Saturday. I currently use an old but reliable CS5MX which I am thinking of changing for a much newer Garret Euroace with a standard 28cm X 22cm coil. I am also thinking of buying a Nel Tornado 12" X 13" coil to go with the Euroace. This will leave the standard 28cm X 22cm coil doing nothing so could I (If the wife wanted me to) take the standard 9" X 6"(ish) coil off her Ace 250 and replace it with the 28cm X 22cm coil from the Euroace without doing any damage to the Ace 250 or coil please?
Your thoughts and words of wisdom (as always) are most welcome.

hello, i am sure the ACE range of coils are interchangeable so you would be able to put a euro ace DD on the 250, fitting a nel on the euro ace makes it slightly out of balance but many on here have, why change the 5 MX ?

I am thinking of getting a newer machine as my old CS5MX is just a little bit dated even though it still works very well. If I get a "more modern" machine I would almost certainly keep the CS5MX as a back-up machine.

hello, that would be my thoughts to in keeping the 5 MX, i am sure the DD coil on the euro fits the 250 but to confirm you could contact Regtons, the DD would be better than the stock coil, as for the Nel on a euro ace plenty of good videos and reviews, good luck

Think will have to check. The ace 250 is 6.5khz and the Euroace is 8.25khz so not sure .

Just checked with Regtons and according to them all coils designed specifically for the Ace range of detectors are interchangeable from one "Ace" to another "Ace". Therefore they have confirmed that the original (28cm 22cm) coil from the Euroace will go straight on to the Ace 250 without any problems.
If all goes well and I get a Euroace and a Tornado coil it will be interesting to see how the Ace 250 performs when fitted with the 28cm X 22cm coil from the Euroace compared to the original (9.5" x 7") coil from the Ace 250, and maybe even see how things go with the Tornado coil fitted on the Ace 250 - (As long as SWMBO doesn't get too attached to the Tornado coil)

hello, a Nel coil will out perform the DD coil but you will be digging deeper holes, also the difference in Khz should not realy matter, good luck

Thanks for the post garrettoldboy, that's near enough what Regtons told me. I am picking the Euroace up tonight and have already ordered the Tornado coil so now I'm now sat here like a little kid waiting for Christmas. (The wife is also looking forward to finding how the 28cm x 22cm coil from the Euroace feels and works on her Ace250 - Could have won myself a few Brownie Points here so it looks like "Happy Days" all round! ::g )
