14K Gold Medallion Found!

I just want to tell you that the verdict is in on the 8" DD Excelerator search coil you sent me. It is an excellent search coil and I highly recommend it to White's MXT and DFX users. It is what you would expect from a top of the line search coil. This coil is an excellent choice for open field hunting and even in high trash areas. I have only used it for about 6 or 7 hours but in that time I found that I was able to detect deep targets as I dug several targets that were in the 8 to 9 inch range. I feel that the coil is capable of getting down deeper. Pinpointing with this coil is a snap. You can pinpoint off the front of the coil or the back and when you dig your target you know exactly where it is.

I found that my detector's VDI numbers were accurate on the targets that I dug and recovered and I was able to run my detector's gain higher with out enduring a lot of noisy chatter which was nice because I could search out those deeper targets. I want to thank you JW for recommending this coil to me because I really like using it and I want to thank Kellyco for providing quality Excelerator search coils for White's detectors. Have a good one and stay in touch. Dennis in, Idaho.

PS: I have sent you a photo of a 14K Gold religious medallion that I recovered today. VDI numbers were 14-16, down about 4 inches. Ya gotta love this hobby.
