A little update on my current Detector Outfit.

I only have these models:

Fisher F5

Garrett Apex

Minelab Vanquish 540 (Pro Pack)

Nokta / Makro Simplex +

Tesoro Silver Sabre µMAX

Tesoro Bandido II µMAX


Six different models from five manufacturers. I keep and use only the 7" Concentric on the F5, and only the 5X9½ DD on the Simplex +, and only the 6" Concentric on all the Tesoro's. If I plan to work a wide-open are where I want a larger-size coil, I might swap to the 9X12 on the V-540, but otherwise it always has the 5X8 DD mounted.

While I have 6 models, I do have duplicates of some. I have two of the Silver Sabre µMAX and two of the Bandido II µMAX, but still each of them sports the 6" Concentric coil ONLY.

Additionally, I have duplicate of the Garrett Apex, and plan to get a 3rd new Apex. Why? My primary-use Apex wears the 5X8 DD 'Ripper' coil which is a near perfect general-purpose coil for me and places I hunt. My 2nd Apex keeps their new 8½X11 DD 'Raider' coil mounted full-time. This is what I grab for larger, more open areas with limited targets, for beach, hitting a plowed field or pasture, etc.,etc. The new 3rd Apex will keep the new NEL 5" DD mounted or taking on brushier, rocky, debris-littered sites.

So, today I use 6 models, but the total count is 9 in number thanks to duplicates. Someone e-mailed and asked.
