I don't know why White's has ignored the 9" Concentric.confused smiley

They use a 9" 'spider' Concentric coil on their budged-priced, made in China Xventure, and the Coinmaster and the TreasureMaster. The home-built 9" 'spider' or open-frame Concentric was a standard coil on the MX-5 (now Discontinued) and it was part of a 2-coil introduction of the 'All' stickered MXT Pro with a 10" D2 DD coil. But that was it. confused smiley

A nicely balanced coil with a 'modern' appearance compared with the old 950 Concentric coil, and it balances better than the 950, works better as a wading search coil, and is just 'better.' A nice looking, nice working newer coil design, but they instead use the old-style, and kind of ugly-looking '950' on their M6, MX-3, and it is offered for the MX-Sport and a standard coil on the new MX-7.

I think they ought to revitalize the 9" Concentric open-frame coil and offer it for the MX-7, MX Sport, and the older models like the V3i, VX3, MXT series, M6, and MX-5. Just don't know why they have stuck with the 950. confused smiley The 9" works much better for wading or Beach Hunting than the floatable 950, too.
