WM6, if you're referring to the Simplex + ...

November 15, 2020 03:13PM avatar
I own two of them, and I keep the 11-inch on one that I only use for short durations in wide open areas. Also, I work search coils about 12" to 18" ahead of my lead toe and I do not extend the rod way out in front because that causes a lot of nose-heavy unbalance.

On my primary use Simplex + I keep the 5X9.5 DD mounted because I can hunt for a long amount of time without discomfort. At least as long as I can with other lightweight and well-balanced detectors. My declining health and increased immobility have really slowed down the amount of time I can hunt these days. I put in all I can, and to do so I need to have very comfortable detector and coil combinations. This set up with the Simplex + works fine.

I only go to a larger size coil on a rare occasion for a specific site search where I might benefit from the bigger coil. 95% of all my detecting is typically accomplished using a small-size to mid-size search coil.

Yes indeed, but first I tried to make sure it was the detector.
