My Racer 2 coil favorites.

The Racer 2 w/'OOR' or 5" DD do not handle the 'tough-test', that I invited Gregg to come check out, as well as the NEL Snake coil. That was just one test, but a real challenge. Personally, not being a fan of aftermarket coils, I prefer, and have good in-the-field results with, both the 'OOR' DD and 5" DD on the Racer 2. However, if I am purposely hunting a site with abundant, densely-located iron nails and other ferrous debris, I much prefer to use either my CoRe w/'OOR' or Relic w/5" DD. I have yet to find any competitive model to match them, and definitely nothing to beat the CoRe on that particular 'Tough Test.'

So, while I have both the smaller coils for the Racer 2 in my Accessory Coil Tote, mounted on lower rods and ready-for-use, I much prefer the Racer 2 to keep the round 7" Concentric coil mounted 'full-time.' This combination make a great set-up for 'scouting' an area, and also work great for urban Coin & Jewelry Hunting tasks or plowed fields or the fringes of old town sites and such that are well away from dense iron contamination.

It balances better than an elliptical mid-size or the standard-size DD coils, too, so that adds to it making a very good 'companion' detector to have along. I take my as assigned to my Coin Hunting team.
