- - - 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?

Monte,

You left off a very important part of the equation; what type of detector is needed? Coin, relic, surf/beach hunting, shallow fresh water, park, ghost town, tot lots, gold prospecting, etc? Each of these has very different needs. eye popping smiley. Is this a custom detector just for me? Or does the manufacturer actually have to try and market this to others?

I'm going to say custom just because we're making things up.

If i was JUST hunting with Gregg at the old ghost town type places for old coins, tokens, and such, i would want the small Nokta OOR and a medium coil that is elliptical 8-9". I'd get the CoRe electronics, add iron audio AND ability to adjust individual audio tones/volume and put it in a Garrett Apex type housing that is weather proof. S Rod. Wide arm cuff. Carbon Fiber rod. Center mounted attach point on the coils. I would have AA batteries (i can use rechargeable batteries if i wish) when way out in the middle of nowhere. I want bone conduction headphones.

Color? I like white coils.

If I have to take something off the shelf for strictly ghost town hunting, I could go with either my 800 with 6" or the D2 with 9". Both are versatile and will find stuff.
