Give them some thought and, if there is any way, try to compare either of them to the FTP 5" coil. I have tried them on some makes & models and they worked well, but on others the detector-maker's 5" was better.

I am not thrilled with the country the MAGIC coil comes from, but the quality and performance are impressive. If comparing another mid-size coil, the Nokta / Makro 5X9.5 works great and I found them to compare well against the Sharpshooter. Otherwise I agree with you and feel the Sharpshooter makes a nice addition for most any make / model. If I didn't have the 5X8 MGC coil I would get a Sharpshooter for my F-75+

I know I prefer to use a mid-size coil than a standard coil like a 7X11 or round 11", etc., and do not have a detector wearing a standard coil.

Too bad you didn't get a MGC 5X8 for the T2.

My only aftermarket coil might see some Outing use.
