No, not 'perfect' but close ... and I believe in white coils.

December 06, 2020 08:43PM avatar
I started with a red wooden search coil on my first factory-produced detector, and for decades since then have usually had to pick between a black coil or white coil. Of the two, I prefer to be looking down at a white-colored coil, especially for Relic Hunting in dirt and getting it in and around and under building rubble and dense brush.

I ONLY use a small ±5" coil on my CoRe and Relic, and both of them are a white coil. Both of my Tesoro's sport a 6" white coil, and I have a white 6½" coil on my XLT. Unfortunately, I am limited to a black-colored coil on my F5, Simplex's, Apex's and Vanquish's ... Just as you are with the 6" or `11" coils on your Equinox 800.

The only problem with white-colored coils, and perhaps more of an issue with older-style white material used, is that in time they slowly discolor to a faded white and then to a yellowish color. Especially if exposed to a lot of sun or simply time.

But my CoRe and OregonGregg's CoRe sport the more attractive white-colored 'OOR' coils, and my Relic wears the white 5".thumbs up

My first metal detector with iron audio is a White's MX5 and it is at a preset level if you wish to hear it all in 2 tone Coin mode.
