George, my comments about the ORX and search coils.

May 15, 2021 02:20AM avatar
I owned 3 ORX devices and felt they all performed very consistently and could work well. I had two 'custom' setting in Coin 5 and Coin 6 slots and that's all I needed.

I had the 9" coils and the 5X9½ DD HF coil which is the one I preferred. Very nice performance. So, since I do not have an XP any longer .... Why not?

• I didn't like the cost for the coils.

• I also would like to hav had a round 4½" to 6" coil to fit into are where the 5X9½ didn't fit well.

• I didn't like the high numeric VDI read-out for our US 5¢ coins.

• I also didn't like the multi-component rechargeable system, especially when the search coil seemed to have a relatively short 'run-time' compared with the other components (Controller, Headphones, Mi-6 Pinpointer.)

Just my thoughts and conclusion. The ORX and a good coil make a good detector set-up, but for me, I am satisfied with what I'm using.
