dixiedigger57, quick comments about coils.

August 24, 2020 01:18PM avatar
In the Garrett line, I also like the 5X8 coil on the AT series. I also like the 5X8 DD on the Minelab Vanquish and th 5X9½ DD coils on the Nokta / Makro devices, and have one mounted on one of my Simplex + units. I can do OK in average Bottle Cap environments with the standard 11" DD coils, but when the amount of those pesky caps gets to be annoying, the Simplex + I use the most has the 5X9½ DD coil mounted. I still look forward to a smaller-size coil to better deal with those very littered site challenges.

DD coils love rusty beer bottle caps, your Tesoro with a concentric coil would be better thumbs up N/T
