Sodbuster, just some afternoon thoughts.

Thank you for the feedback. Using the minelab 6" coil is sorta like sweeping the gym with a toothbrush, and takes more patience than I have in larger areas.... I usually give up after awhile.

Larger-size areas that are more open and with a sparse amount of metal targets are often best hunting with a mid-size to larger-size (standard-size by today's model offerings) search coil. The smaller-size coils are at their best in dense brush, very heavy trash, or other places with confined space to work and a lot of debris to maneuver around. Since the summer of '68 I have used smaller-size coils at least 95%-98% of the time, and continue to do so today. However, I hunt the more littered and challenging sites most of the time to those coil sizes are right-at-home..

Also got the 5 x 10 ordered as well, and have some trashy spots to test it out on.
No personal experience working ghost town environments for me yet. I'll look forward to hearing about how
the coiltek works for you. H.H. thumbs up

The 5X8, 5X9½, 5X10, 5½X10 and 6X10 or 6X11 are what I consider to be a "mid-size" search coil and I use them in modestly littered to cleaner areas. In the toughest challenges I take on, I favor a smaller-size coil. My personal preference is a 4½-6½" Concentric coil, or a ±5" Double-D coil. Over 5½ decades of very avid detecting has proven these coil sizes and types ... in harmony with a very good-working detector they are attached to ... to be the top performers and produce the best all-around results.
