- - - and you were asked to describe the following to the manufacturer and design engineers,

Q #1: What size, shape and type of search coil would you want to be 'standard'?

Q #2: If you could suggest only two accessory search coils, what size, shape and type would they be?

Q #3: What color would you want the search coils to be?

A #1: For a standard coil I'd want a round, 9" Concentric coil. I really like the White's 9" 'spider' coil and the XP 9" X35 or HF coils as I feel 9" is a very versatile, general-purpose size. But I would want a Concentric design.

A #2: Something in a round-shape, 5" to 6", no bigger. Again, my preference would be a Concentric type coil. A 2nd accessory coil I would like a mid-size. Maybe something like a 5X9½ open-frame, but I would especially favor a 5X8 open-frame Double-D design.

A #3: White !!!

My preferences. If anyone wanted a larger-size coil, there are quite a few after-market coil makers who offer both bigger sizes and Double-D designs.
