"It does make one think, doesn't it?" ... It sure does, and that's why - - -

- - some people who have an Equinox and also have their 6" DD coil like it and prefer it and use it. Sometimes almost exclusively. Matter of fact, if I break down and buy an Equinox 800, and the thought has crossed my mind, I would most likely use the 6" DD coil myself, and probably almost full-time.

I watched the video and read all of the comments / replies, but concluded that while that one test comparison seemed to suggest the 11" DD is better than the 6" DD, I don't think CD or most of the others know why, they had those results in that particular test. Anyone can make a test, compare two coils or two detectors, and make a quick judgment from what they saw. However, to come out ahead in doing any performance comparisons anyone can point to it and say ... "Look! This did better than that."

But to really learn fro any experience afield or in a test scenario is to be able to say ... 'This did better than that because -----" or 'This didn't perform as well as the other because ---' and then be able to fill in the blanks with a logical and knowledgeable answer or reason.

A different detector might have done better with a smaller-size coil than the EQ-800 simply due to different circuitry design.

Walking up on that test scenario from a different approach angle with both coils could have made a difference.

I'd like to see him attend the 12th WTHO this coming June in Nevada and wave his EQ-800 and 11" DD around some choice areas of Tecoma, Toano, Cobre or Metropolis and leave a 6" DD sitting in his vehicle because "it's no good."

Yep! Both are good coils .... for different applications. N/T
