Diggerman, you're quite correct about search coils.

it is not always us or the detector circuitry that needs to fit the task, it is the search coil. I am quite fond of smaller-size search coils and have favored them for most of the places I hunt since 1968. The Vista X units I had worked quite well with their 5.7" DD and when I reacquire a Vista X that will be my primary-use coil. Then I will need a good mid-size coil for most of my less-littered areas, something in the 5X8 range that is open design. For urban Coin Hunting here in the USA, the new 8" Concentric ought to be just the right selection.

SvenS, another mid-size coil to try.
