What I *need* and *want*, Joel, is a 4½" Concentric coil.

I know it is a little more difficult for manufacturers these days to make coils that work well, partly due to the 'digital' circuitry design, and augmented by models that are Simultaneous Multi-Frequency or offer Selectable Single-Frequencies .... or, better still, both. I will be in touch wih the good folks at Garrett Metal Detectors again this week just to share how much I really want a smaller size, round-shaped coil, and especially one that is of Concentric design.

Right now the 5" NEL 'Sharp' DD is providing me performance about on-par with a Tesoro Bandido or Silver Sabre or Pantera, or an XP Vista X or Vista Smart or Vista Gain, or White's Classic II or Classic III SL .... and similar makes and models. It works, but .....

I do kind of miss the good old days of analog detector circuitry design, even thou we did have to keep search coils wound to be "in-spec." More on this in a post later this evening here on the Garrett Forum. I'll finish after lunch break and get out for a little more detecting and search coil comparison while it is so very pleasant, then refer to my notes when I post later.

Watch for a heading: "4 Apex devices and 4 different search coils."
