Re: RickUK, that is the Nokta 5" DD coil he's using.

That's the size on my primary-use Relic as well. Handles confined spaces well, works terrific in ferrous and non-ferrous trash, and the Relic w/5" DD still gets very impressive depth of detection when called upon to do so.thumbs up


Monte,thanks for the reply,i guess it was a small coil thought it may have been more like say a 7'' rather than a 5'',i fully grasp when too use a 5'' or a similar size coil in a really trashy environments,but the ground coverage would be not its best asset,i do use a 5'' coil on my T2 and a few other machines but for say more open terrain that is still littered then i would in my case use say a 8x6 or 7'' coil as that would still give you a reasonable amount of ground coverage but also preform reasonably well in the trash.

Have just put my 5'' coil back on the T2 as i am finding a big problem with swinging a detector with a stock or slightly larger coil on,so hence the reason everyone of my detecting arsenal have had much smaller coils put on.The big problem is with my right wrist that has sustained 2 bike accidents back in the 70s and 80s and the injury is finally starting to haunt me,how ever hard i try and swing with my left arm the coordination just does not happen,so i even have too use a harness depending on the weight of the machine either a small harness or a full one even for when i use my Deus.

Been out today with the T2 and Sharpshooter coil and after just 5 hours my wrist is in total pain,but i must admit i did not have a harness on for half of that time,but suffering for it this evening.

Some of the tools of the trade that i use for different site situations here in the UK.

Equinox 600,Deusx2,T2,TDI Pro,Nexus MP,Nexus SE,Fisher TW-5 twin box,Mirage PI,Crossbow PI,Arado 120b,DFX and others.

RickUK, that is the Nokta 5" DD coil he's using.

Roger, both the detector coil choices you made are good.
