FORS Relic coil answer and comments.

May 02, 2019 10:54AM avatar
Del, I see Remfire gave you the answer, and OregonGregg told me this morning that he's going to loan out his Relic Concentric coil to evaluate.

I had one and I preferred the enclosed 5½X10 Concentric to the enclosed 5½X10 Double-D. It worked better, for me, in modestly iron littered old sites where iron nails were the main offender.

However, as Remfire mentioned, one of the reasons I liked it was the white color used for the Gold and Gold + search coils. When I have an option I prefer the white coils to a brown or black colored coil, and I keep a white 'OOR' DD on my FORS CoRe and a white 5" DD on my FORS Relic. Unfortunately, the only mid-sized coils I have for these two models is their open-frame 5X9½ DD. They are black, but I like their lighter weight, open-frame design and balance.

I do wish they were white colored because I've preferred a white-colored search coil going back to when I '69-'72 when most manufacturers were making their coils in white and, as Remfire mentioned, I hunt sites with a lot of dense brush and I like tone able to see the coils at work when under sagebrush and other vegetation. Not as easy with a black colored coil.

I look forward to reading your comments after you've hunted a while with the Concentric coils on the Relic.
