Larger coils have their place and certainly ground conditions dictate how big you can go as mineralization and emi goes higher the depth difference is much lower so is it worth swinging a 17" coil with only an inch gain if your lucky?

In the North East here grounds vary but in general open areas you can do well with a >13" coil. Get into higher trash then certainly the little coils will pick make isolating targets easier. High iron areas I fall back to the concentrics though the 2 I have are same size, 8x9 on the Tesoro and 9 on the Kruzer, both do the job and won't mask out on me. Other than that I typically use a DD.

I often thought what if I take my PI out to some these places I hunt and I toss My Kruzer into Gen Mode and just listen to all the bits and say no thanks, not digging all that!

Today I hit a field that was just cut. Buddy mine did very well last year there and found some nice old coppers and some v nickels. Place has been hit hard, lots of old iron bits and chunks of coal as back in the day they used steam powered tractors in the fields.

Weather we had a chance of showers so I used the Kruzer with 12" coil (similar depth as the Nox 800 which my buddy uses). Hunted in Gen Mode (all metal) and just listened to any obvious rises in threshold and payed attention to the size of the sound then checked id's. Often I would get a 4 (iron) and sometimes just a - - so I would flick to 2 tone and squeeze out a number. I won't hunt in 2 tone as it is tough on the ears and not nearly as informative to the target as Gen or 3 tone). Long story short I managed to pick out a nice little turn of the century button, thought it was a bell button but it turned out to be just a small button, piece of a harmonica, little brass clasp of some sorts and the pendant that is gold plated.

Back of the pendant refers to the a carriage company that lasted a couple years. Not sure how old the pendent is but definately not a common find. Sometimes not finding coins and coming across something old and unique is just as fun for me. Weather depending may take my Tesoro out there and see what I can sniff out and yes it will be with the bigger coil smiling smiley
