10 X 12 SEF (Butterfly) Search Coil
Well...I decided I would really put the 10 x 12 SEF coil to the test today. I took it to 3 small parks that I have pounded into submission with other coils...just to see how good it really is. My final impression....It is a deep coin killer.
Each and every coin I found over the next 9 hours was 8" to 10" deep... except for one 11"er ...and many were on edge. While I did have some nice solid signals...well over 50% of them were faint chirps. I believe it was this coil that allowed me to hear those chirps that I decided to further investigate. At these beat up sites...you either go very slow...and pay close attention to these type of signals...or you go home with an empty pouch.
My coin totals for the 9 hour day from 3 pounded to death parks that both my buddy and I have hit numerous times with other coils: 24 Wheaties....1 Roosey...3 Mercs...2 silver washington quarters...1 standing Liberty quarter..and a tiny sterling insignia ring with the letter S on it. What an amazing coil.Bryce-IL
