NEXUS MP 41”(104cm) vs NEXUS ULTIMA 20” dual

Post by toni » Sat Jul 22, 2017 4:00 pm

The “New for 2017, Carbon Fiber coils with Nexus MP” has arrived.
I was thrilled to receive the parcel with the Nexus MP detector with 1m coil. Unpacking it, I was worried about something having been damaged in transport. It is a very nice detector, as if assembled by hand with great care. Since I also had the option of ordering certain additional functions, it seems to be the Rolls-Royce in detectors. It is such an elegant detector, I feel that I should be searching in the field in a suit and tie.
So much for my first impression of the Nexus MP with 1m coil. We know that great appearance is not sufficient. I am sometimes asked to come and look for a treasure according to a family legend. People expect me to bring a modern sci-fi detector, which finds the treasure in 5 minutes, shows it on display and digs it out too. A deep searching detector I often bring along with my other tools looks as if it were put together by a carpenter and an amateur plumber. I even feel a little embarrassed because I can see the disappointment in the eyes of the people who hired me. What can I do? What the detector knows and how much precise information it provides is the most important.
I will compare Nexus MP 1m against one of the best detectors, or possibly the best detector for searching for treasures – Nexus Ultima and I will be tough in my comparison.
I may not even publish my opinion so that my neighbor doesn’t buy himself the Nexus MP with 1m Carbon Fiber coils too. (Joking)

Hi, I'm new to this NEXUS forum. I present my respect to all the fans.

I'm very interested in getting a 41 "plate, but as I deduce from your opinion, it does not seem like a good idea, is it?

I own Nexus Standard and Nexus Ultimate, you say it's better Last than MP, sorry if I misunderstood, but I'm a little confused.

A greeting.

Hello PELUMITO
Congratulations to the Nexus Ultima.
But according to me Nexus MP with 1m Is more useful. Better. And very light. He has a deeper discriminator. More precise discriminator.Etc.
My experiences at the end of the week.

Uffff !!!!
I feel a great relief for his clarification, I am saving to have the services of a 41 "and after his answer I try to speed up to fill my piggy bank.

HI,
I don’t quite feel confident to write about the settings of the NEXUS detector. I have only known this device for a short period of time. There are others for this, such as Nexus, Filternozzle, Mega B and others.
I almost feel embarrassed to admit that I made a huge mistake at the beginning. I misunderstood the Google translation of the manual. I assumed blue color was to indicate metals other than iron and red to indicate iron. However, I thought it strange that iron would produce a high-pitched sound and other metals low-pitched sound. The resulting confusion was disappointing. Nexus put it straight for me in a matter of hours and I was immediately holding a quite different detector in my hands – in terms of soil balance, reach, as well as discrimination.
I live on a riverbank on a hill about 100m high. You can barely strike the soil with a hoe without finding some fragments, sometimes as far back as the bronze age. Full of fragments. I don’t grow anything here, only cut the grass with a mower. The size of the garden is about half of a ¼ football field. About 15 years ago, I turned this garden into testing grounds for deep-search detectors. I buried various types of metal here at various depths up to 2m (7 feet). I have tested many detectors here. I was not the only one, well-known hunters from neighboring countries also tested detectors here. I won’t mention any brands but you would be surprised! With each of my new detectors and with the expensive detectors my acquaintances brought, I hoped that we would find “something else” besides my buried targets. I could not believe how nothing old could be found in a garden full of fragments. It all changed now with the Nexus MP 41” (1m) coil…………
Why am I writing this? I bought the drone Phantom 2 vision + about three years ago. I wanted to search for new locations because all of the familiar locations have been searched through 1000 times. I now no need to search for new pieces of land. I am anticipating the new adventures with the Nexus MP 41” (1m) at these well searched locations with great pleasure. The detector is light and I can search with it for hours. I search with a straight elbow. I will have plenty of locations for searching for years. Naturally, until many others buy this machine because it is not expensive at all for all the things it can do. I am alone so far, years ahead of my colleagues!

@toni,have you had a chance and try the new 41'' coil out yet on the Nexus MP ?? really looking forward on your reviews on this coil and the depth that i will achieve.

Should be phenomenally deep even more so that the dual 20'' coil on the Ultima,keep us in the loop as they say =))

Will be out with my MP trying out the new 24khz Concentric coil on trashy permission,subject to the weather improving that is,but i still cannot get over how ultra light weight this 11.5'' coil is.

Hi Mega B!
Nexus MP is definitely better than Nexus Ultima. This is precisely why I ordered a 20”DD coil also for the MP. Having the option of buying different sizes of coils (9” to 41” !!) and various kHz for your detector is a great advantage. The manufacturer has chosen a good direction until the pulse detector improves.
I have read somewhere that once pulse detectors improve to match VLF detectors, we can throw out all other types and use exclusively pulse detectors! I am curious.
Until then, various manufacturers will try to get our attention with various innovations. I doubt that detectors that flash or retract here and there or have extra-terrestrial design will help anyone while searching in the field.
As a matter of interest, I will illustrate the quality of Nexus MP with the 41” coil. I have been focusing mainly on deep searching for more than 20 years. I have had various deep-search detectors. I have seen several ploughed cemeteries. While it is true I never specialised in this, I have never found a Celtic or bronze-age cemetery with detectors for non-ferrous metals. This has changed. This is what I see as the only disadvantage. does not warns Beware of the grave,tomb!
Hello Nexus,
until me translation came to me, the coil 20"also came. well thank you.
Coil 20 "is very, very good!
It is true- “This search coil is capable to find both hammered silver coins, hoards of coins, medium and large targets at extreme depth”.
will be even bigger DD?

@toni,Toni,must admit i am tempted in getting the 20'' coil as well,just bought a 11.5'' Concentric coil and that over night has become my favourite coil on the MP,running at 24khz and about as good as it gets on the discrimination as well.

Always carry the 7'' and 14'' coil with me as well,makes the machine much more versatile in my opinion,christmas is coming up fast and the 20'' coil is on the shopping list.

I currently use the TDI Pro(pulse) with a 20'' Mono on,of course for ground coverage and not depth i will clarify that before anyone kicks off,the advantage of this setup is that by running it in low conductivity settings,rather than all or high you can still get the low conductive targets but also nearly eliminate digging iron,this is the amazing part of using the TDI Pro or GPX being pulse machines they do give you depth and also advantages in high mineral ground content but also they do have some iron reject infact better than alot of folks are aware of.Not saying they are perfect in any way or use them as a everyday machine,but in the right scenario not alot will touch a well setup Pulse machine.

Like anything,no one detector/coil setup can or will do it all ::g

I don't think so. A bigger DD coil will be quite heavy and very difficult to keep stable. The bigger sizes will be all concentric as these coils are far easier to keep stable and they also can be much lighter than DD. The next big concentric coil to come is 30". Expected weight 800 grams.

I have read somewhere that deep searching is the pinnacle of this hobby or even a proper craft (craft in terms of experience and knowledge, not as a wage-earning activity!!). However, even a beginner can use Ultima with some explanation by an experienced searcher.

In my previous post, I wanted to initiate discussion among NEXUS detector users when I wrote that MP Nexus with a 41” coil is better than Nexus Ultima. This is not true. It is not better but deeper. This is not the same. There are situations when I would choose Nexus Ultima for searching and in other cases I would opt for MP 41”. Or the universal 20” DD coil, which is a very good product by Nexus. I still have at least 4 deep search detectors. Not one of them is better than the others. They are simply specific to various conditions, various objectives, etc.

I am not interested in tourist-style surface search and do not plan to buy a smaller Nexus coil. However, as the experience with Nexus shows, there are as many detectors as there are coils, and even a smaller coil would be a pleasant surprise.

Yes, redwulf500!
Everyone who has deep search equipment from Nexus will find something. But it needs to be used, not left in a corner at home while daydreaming.
The ground, soil is an excellent vault. This is why so many things for the last 3000 years or so remain buried, hidden and undiscovered. We need a good-quality detector and coil to uncover them. A large coil is needed for buried treasures. A small coil is sufficient for small, lost or ploughed up coins and rings. I have put my bet on Nexus and I have not regretted it. I don’t believe that anyone regret for example Ultima, 20”DD and 41” Nexus coils. It is only a shame for Nexus that none of can boast about a 10-thousand USD find or a find worth tens of thousands. We can see on detector forums that we show off small items, coins, rings, etc., but there are no treasures. This is why Nexus deep search sets are in this situation like the anaesthesiologist, the doctor that puts the patient to sleep. In my opinion, the most important doctor but few people know about him.
I will keep buying each new issue of the deep search coils from Nexus. I am secretly waiting for the Nexus two-box coil that would determine deep item and shallow item. This would be wonderful. Or what we need to know the most is whether the location is deep or not (up to 30 cm). This is more important information than ferrous or non-ferrous.

Hi toni,i agree with you,plan on taking both my SE dual 9'' coil and MP 14x13'' out this weekend on a local permission,the new 11.5'' Concentric coil is great but you cannot beat a large coil,of course just for ground coverage,would never dream of going down below the plough line.

The new Concentric coils running @24khz are pretty amazing on silver hammered coins including very small cut halves etc,20'' coil will be on the christmas wish list.

Surely the whole point of a large round coil is to obtain DEPTH, ground coverage is very much a secondary benefit......
