R.I.F. Ranger coils

Post by keg83 » Sun Nov 30, 2014 12:14 am

Has anyone tried or heard how good the R.I.f Ranger coils are . Available from Russia on ebay for various detectors ( minelab , xp , etc ) They look great and are available in various sizes.... 14 x 10 ...etc (look like the Deus coil) just wondered if they perform as good as they look ? I have a goldmaxx and think it might be a good coil for quiet ground . any help or information would be appreciated on this .

Try Nigel at Regtons, or Pete at Joan Allen; they may be able to spread some light
on the matter. ::g

I've seen them too, they do look good and for a similar known
Make of coil they are around half price. We need a guinea pig
To try buying one and giving it a test to see if its the real deal.
Any takers?

If there are any 'Takers'- remember to pay via credit card in case it's unusable. (that could also produce problems)...........Credit Card + Russia = ??

I appreciate this is a long time since original message, but I have been using a RIF coil, bought online, for over 2 years. It is indistinguishable in performance to a Coiltek of same dimensions...well almost.... I just have a feeling it has the better of the WOT coil by a few millimeters.
Customer service was excellent with great communication.
I would buy from them again today and will be asking if they can make me a one off coil soon.
