In my personal opinion, the #1 coil to own for the Classic III Plus, Classic III SL, Classic ID, Classic IDX and the IDX Pro is the 6½" 'Blue Max' series coil. That could be the Blue Max 600, or the 5.3 Black Max, or the 5.3 BullsEye. All the same coils in the same housing that measures about 6½" in diameter and all are Concentric types. My 2nd favorite for the IDX Pro is tone of the thin-profile 8" Concentric coil, and my personal favorite is the Burgundy-colored. The 3rd pick, for taking on some of the trashiest locations, would be the Blue Max 350.

I used to keep a modified Classic ID or IDX Pro w/6½" Concentric coil mounted on-hand all the time. It was about the only detector/coil combination that came vey close to matching the performance of a good Tesoro model, and that made them rank very high in my book of detectors that were affordable and handily took on the dense Iron Nail challenges of the ghost towns and other places I love to hunt.

Like Gregg said, if you get your hands on a good, clean specimen, you might want to hang onto it to complement the other detectors you favor. They use the same search coils as White's XLT, XL Pro / 6000 Pro XL, and other models using the Blue Max series of coils and operate at 6.6 kHz.

Stick with the Blue Max coils. Prizm, Coinmaster, Treasure Master or Treasure Pro coils will not work. N/T
