Sven, 'Thank You' ... My coil considerations.

October 17, 2022 01:04AM avatar
It's nice to know the coil you used to compare the round 8" Concentric.

I know I pan tro get the Vista-X with the 'standard' Octagon coil, and I also want the round 5.7 DD and the round, solid 8" Concentric coil. I have a tough time trying nto figure out some of the DeepTech website and under the Vista-X section I see it show a "Super-Six" elliptical DD coil that is more rounded and they show the measurement of 8X5.4 which is what I like for a mid-size coil for certain applications.

Personally, like some manufacturers, I like to list or describe coils by their width first and then by their length, and a 5.4X8 compares nicely with the 5X8 on a Vanquish 540, or the 5X9½ish on a Racer 2 or F-19. If tyhat coil is not available for the Vista-X I will get by with the smaller 5.7 DD and 8" Concentric.

I love my two favorite Tesoro's and they are not going anywhere. I've enjoyed the analog Tesoro performance for 39½ years and found the Vista-X I had to compliment my detector team and provide better audio, depth-of-detection, and adjustment features for a low-tone ferrous range. I look forward to getting re-outfitted with a Vista-X package for those places I plan to be hunting in the future.

Keep folks posted on your success with the 'X' and 8" Concentric as we slide into late fall and winter.
