Monte;

I left off the + sign in my original message. I run it at +2 or +2.5.

That makes a big difference and helps explain your 'overload' issue.

The 12" came with the detector when I bought it.

The MXT 300, using their 'mm' lingo, was simply their big 12" coil. I had one on an MXT 300 I got in a trade and checked it out for fun. Sure enough, it was never going to be a search coil i would use due to he thick brush, very dense ferrous debris, and trying to work around building rubble at most of the places I hunted. If I remember, I think I traded it straight across for another 6½" Concentric coil (White's called them a 5.3 Eclipse but I know how to use a ruler).

Today I took off the coil cover and cleaned all dirt out. Then went to a park. The overload came on above +1.5. I changed the coil to an Eclipse 5.3 and hunted for 2.5 hours with no overload, running it a +2.5 and +3.0. Does this sound like a cable issue?

The smaller cols, with smaller-size EMFs, are going to be less likely to have a noisy behavior because the the bigger coil's EMF is see so much mineralized ground. There can likely be trouble with a higher Sensitivity / Gain setting for some coils because the ground signal is too strong, and that can lead to an 'overload' issue or 'back-reading'. Smaller-size coils can have less issues due to a smaller-size EMF. It can also hep to work the bigger-size cl slightly higher from the ground. Usually about 2" to 3" can handle most bad-ground challenges.

Detector is registering coins correctly. Happy that it's not the detector.

I have had success with the 12" for the areas I am able to hunt. This is from last week.

Good for you. But I can tell you it won't be a good coil choice for the densey littered plces I go.

Whites 9" Spider Eclipse Waterproof Coil MX5, M6, MXT, DFX, VX3, V3i 801-3249-1

Is this the open end 9" you were referring to?

Yes, that's the coil, and if I had an MXT Pro again I'd have that 9" coil and the 6½" Concentric as they would be all I'd need.
