Coil comparison question.. ?? ..

February 01, 2021 05:56PM avatar
Todd, you have the 5X8 'Ripper' but do you also have the 8½X11 'Raider' coil from Garrett?

My three Apex devices are outfitted with the 'Ripper' for general-purpose daily use. The 'Raider' is on Apex #2 for any hunts I might make on a beach, wide-open grassy park, a plowed field, etc. My 3rd Apex currently has the NEL 5" 'Sharp' coil for fitting into tight spots and / or trashier conditions. All three coils work quite well, and right now I am still holding out hope that Garrett will make a 4½" Concentric for the Apex which might replace the NEL coil.

But I am wondering about the Super-Fly performance? I worked a Super-Fly coil on a T2+ and on another model to compare weight and balance. That part was impressive. Just wondering if you have the 'Raider' coil to do any in-the-field comparison against the NEL Super-Fly?

Have you had a chance to get out again this past two weeks?

Nice to hear your report on the NEL Super-Fly coil.

I also hope the reports are incorrect. I'll be working up a very salty concoction this weekend to test the Sharp. N/T
