It's 5" coil day or thee Apex and me.

I do wish Garrett would make their 4½" Concentric for the Apex, or a new smaller Concentric up to 6" in diameter. As it is, for now I have the NEL 'Sharp' 5" DD coil mounted on my 3rd Apex and it needs t0 get busy in my big 2-bay carport. Monte Jr. bought a trailer yesterday for his riding mower, and when he finishes up his 1-acre yard today he's going to park the mower & trailer in my car port. Before he gets here I need to try and recover all the keepers I can in that dirt environment, and due to the vast amount of trash ... especially bottle caps ... smaller coils are always the better way to go.

Most of my detecting is with the Apex and 'Ripper' DD coil so today will be the most I have been able to put in with the NEL 5" DD. Using the 'Ripper' I managed to get 27 or 28 coins out of there last weekend so this will be an interesting 'test' for the NEL 5". I do know this coil reports a slightly off VDI for common coins, but it should be close enough to help me cherry-pick a few of the trashier areas.
