Imagine you are packing for a one-week detecting jaunt, and you only

June 21, 2021 06:14AM avatar
have room to take no more than three metal detectors and no more than three search coils, one for each detector. Only one coil and no extras to travel with you.

Consider your answer for two different types of detecting trips. One that is intended for typical urban Coin Hunting that could includes parks, schools, public areas such as parking strips, sports fields and private yards you have access to. Commonly encountered trash would mostly be modern type debris.

The second trip would be completely opposite because it would include more challenging iron contamination, such as nails, rusty tin and sites with a lot of small shards of decomposed tin, etc. I mean very challenging Relic Hunting types of places.

Even I have a tough time trying to limit my travel units to only three detectors and only three coils. Here are my choices, and I'm curious what yours might be if you had to narrow it to only three detectors and only three coils for each type of a detecting trip.

Coin Hunting:

* Garrett Apex w/'Ripper' 5X8 DD
* Tesoro Bandido II microMAX w/6" Concentric
* Nokta/Makro Simplex + w/5X 9.5 DD


Relic Hunting:

* Nokta FORS Relic w/ 5" DD
* Garrett Apex w/'Ripper' 5X8 DD
* XP ORX w/5X9.5 DD


These are not listed in the particular order that I would use them because I would select the detector and coil I felt would serve me best based upon the particular site I arrived at to hunt. This is just selecting my preferred three detectors and three search coils based on my current Detector Outfit. If you only have one or two detectors at the current time, then consider any of those which you have had, have used, or might be considering acquiring. In my case, I'm leaving my Accessory Coil Tote home as well as other detectors which I own and use and like. I've considered what I would take and narrowed it down to the three detectors and three assigned search coils for the two different types of detector trip I might make

I'm curious, now, what choices everyone else on these forums might make?

j.t., there will be differences in detector or coil selection based on individual interpretation.
