Thanks for this initial 'bench test' report.

Did some bench testing Friday night and compared it to the similar size XS DD coil. On the bench, characteristics are similar.

Are you referring to the small Vista-X 5.7 DD round coil?

I did set my disc controls to what I like which is reverse from what most people will use them.
Geewhiz, I forgot how nice the Vista X audio was on targets passed across the coil.

I caught the reference before how you use the Disc. and Alt. Disc. 'backwards' from normal. Yes, the Vista-X audio is a very clear and sharp response that is pleasantly hearable.

One thing that was noticed, the 8" concentric sees a target a number of inches from the coils edge.
On the bench, it changes the tone of a bottle cap lying flat from a high to a low tone.

Typically a Concentric might have a bit more response out from the coil's edge compared with a similar-z DD, but often it is different from one, side or the other of the DD coil due to the wiring layout.

Bottle caps can be a problem, but I noticed the same benefit using a round 7" Concentric on a Makro Racer, Racer 2 and Nokta Impact. One of the things I like about most detectors using a Concentric coil.
