Iron/Trash Coil for Garrett AT Pro

June 07, 2017 12:06PM avatar
I just bought my first detector—an AT Pro with 8.5” x 11” DD coil and submersible headphones for kayak trips. It’s not a matter of if but when one next tips over. I also bought my wife an easy to use ACE 300 with 7” x 10” concentric coil. I got her the optional 5” x 8” DD ACE coil for lower weight and reputation for good separation in trash. Our location is southwest Ohio and we plan to attend the next Dayton Diggers meeting.

So the question is, what do you think I should buy myself, if anything, for hunting in iron/nail infested areas? I can sweep behind her with the big DD to find deeper targets one of her small coils missed. I can use her ACE when she isn’t using it. I can buy the 5” x 8” DD AT coil like hers that’s very popular with AT users, but I'd sorta like to have something different. I can get a 6.5” x 9” concentric or 4.5" concentric sniper coil. Or… I can afford a Tesoro Compadre with 5.75” or 8” concentric… or maybe even a Mojave with its 7” concentric... forgoing the ATP capabilities and familiarity but not having to deal with changing coils.

My inclination is to buy nothing for now and learn as much about the AT Pro as I can with its included big DD, using her small coil ACE when I get the chance. Whatcha think? Thanks!
