Drew, you are probably right, but it is just a personal thing, decision wise.

A dealer I know has a great price on the 5.75" concentric, but I don't know how much that coil would add to the machine for the intended purpose, not much difference between it and the 7".
The 6" Concentric coil is my favorite for everything from urban Tot-Lots to out-of-the-way Relic Hunting in ghost towns, homesteads, encampments sites, and you name it. As I stated before, I used the 7" Concentric coil almost exclusively from '83 on most Tesoro's I owned, until the 6" Concentric came out.

I happen to like the looks and feel of that coil as well as reduced nose-end weight. So far as performance afield, however, I would guess they are going to be very, very similar.

By the way I think I have only used the 9x8" coil once for a try out run, other than that the 7" has lived on the detector since.
Thoughts on 5.75"?
I like the 8X9 Concentric for some applications, and I sort of prefer the round, 'donut' 8" Concentric over the newer 8X9 design, but overall I seldom use either of those coils because the 7" Concentric, and now the 6" Concentric, has provided me all the performance I need when I am mainly hunting in brushier and trashier environments.

Since you have the 7" smaller coil and 8X9 standard coil, you are probably good-to-go. However, if you have the opportunity to work a 6" Concentric coil for a little while, I would be eager to hear your thoughts on it compared with the 7".
