'Thank You' for answering my question about detector and coil use.

September 06, 2018 12:36AM avatar
Most folks who know me always expect to see a search coil affixed to one of my Regular-Use Detectors that is 5", 6", 6½" or 7" round shaped or perhaps a mid-sized 5X9½ open-frame elliptical. Very, very seldom would you catch me using a bigger search coil, however this past month three models in my living room or den have a round 11" Double-D coil mounted.eye popping smiley

I was working on some evaluations before my neck / spine surgery when I could drive to various sites to search, but this past two weeks with the neck brace I have been restricted to working evaluations here and in my test area or bumming a ride from my oldest son. This will give me an excuse to have them and grandkids around for a picnic and barbecue on Saturday while we put in a little hunt time. He needs a break from work, I'm sure. smiling smiley

I have extra coils for one of the units in my living room which I am selling, and need to acquire smaller coils for the other two devices so I can get them into the more typical trashy locations I prefer to hunt. But this four week episode of working with different models using 11" DD coils has been interesting. One device I am especially impressed with and plan to take it to a silver coin potential site this weekend when we drop back down out of the 90° range.

I wish you the best of success with the smaller 6" coil on your Equinox 800 in the coming months, and trust you'll have enjoyable weather to get out. I'll be ordering two or three smaller-size coils for two of the units I'm working with and know they will help in the more littered sites I'll be hunting. I will have an 'back-up' model I used to enjoy back in my arsenal by Friday and I'll be getting three or four new search coils to start working with next week. A 5" and 7" for one device I have now, a 4X6 DD for another, and a 7" for the model I'll have by Friday.

Learning the abilities and weak point of different search coils can be as fun as learning the metal detector they are mounted to. Who knows, maybe that 6" equipped EQ-800 will find the 1877 Indian Head Cent for you before the year comes to a close. We can always hope.

Monte

PS: I'll update the particular models I am working with in a week or so.
