Brian's favorite coils

Well, I'll play as it relates to specific machines.

For the V3i:
Heavy trash like the ghost towns we hunt - the 6.5" concentric. Good seperation and handles the nail board well.
Typical parks or old sites with limited garbage - 10" DD. Great for finding those smaller coins to ~8" if masking isn't extreme.
I've found for depth i dont gain much w/ the 13" ultimate DD and useless in trash, but it's fine for covering big, open ground in a hurry... until you get tired:-)

For the MX Sport:
For all conditions - 7" DD. Great woodchip machine and i'm going to get it wet this summer and really put it through the paces.
The stock 10 coil is fine for open space, but the 7" goes nearly as deep, is more precise and picks up the small targets well. Pulled an IHC this week amongst nails and foil at 4-5" w/ the 7" coil.

Since i only use it for jewelry surfing or surface coins in grass or sand, the 950 concentric. I like the fast response if i'm looking for shallow targets and not looking for anything deep or old. It is probably the best machine at targeting dimes to 4" - it really locks on. Pinpoint is always dead center.
