There have appeared clones of the original coils on a massive scale… Across different manufacturers: Garrett, Minelab, Detech, XP, Fisher, White’s. See the photos: cloned housings of branded coils.

  • I have touched base with some manufacturers (there are several of them) of these housings. According to them, they are producing just housings that are similar to original coils. Their similarity is justified by the fact that original product manufacturers didn’t patent the external appearance of their coils.

    The clones’ manufacturers argue that they are producing these housings exclusively for people who make homemade metal detectors and coils.

    But if someone is making a coil housing that is very similar to the original… There will also be those who will start making fake coils (there are already ones).

    In my opinion, it’s very bad, but I understand that if there is a successful product, the emergence of its fakes is only a question of time.

  • In the Netherlands Original coils and detectors are extremly expensive.
    That’s why many Dutch hunters…. have to buy on Ebay or on china websites.
    In the USA Original detectors are afordable, so I would buy ..orignial fisher or BH.
    In Europe in my md-club, some chinese detectors became backups because they are very good.
    So there is a different market in Europe.

    • In the Russia “original coils” are even more expensive!
      But we have very good supply of Detech, NEL, Mars coils
      the quality of these coils is very high and the price affordable!

    • I was going to say the same but use Amazon. This one even says CORS STRIKE on it. Fake or legit? Since they could very well be made in China?

      Anyway Check out the fake or whatever CORS coil for the Chinese rebranded Ace 250’s and 350’s the MD 6250 and MD 6350. I have found them unbranded for as low as $69 and tax delivered. In the link below it has the CORS sticker on it, but is about $110 even at that still almost half the reel coil price.
