6x8 S.E.F. Search Coil with Minelab E-Trac
Got my new SEF 6x8 coil yesterday and put it to the test right away. My buddy and I hit a Boy Scout camp which shutdown in 1968 and is now private property which his buddy owns.
We hit it for 3 hours and the Etrac with the small sef pulled out 15 wheats, 2 mercs, 1 rosie, 1 quarter, 2 jeffersons, 1 V nickel, boy scout necker slider and a WWII medal. A lot of these coins had nails, crown caps and just plain junk soil type stuff mixed in. Very hot impressive coil with good depth! Most coins were in the 4 to 6 inch depth range. Gotta love the E-trac and this small coil setup!!
JW, this coil was most impressive for a first hunt with it! I had my buddy check numerous targets I new were good and mixed with iron and his DFX with the D2 coil on it would not give him a good signal. He would say junk and not dig. This coil rocks! Hoping to get out today if the damn rain lets up. Sunday is looking to be nice so may get in a morning hunt before I head to work at 3. Thanks again and will get more pics. I left right from work to detect and cameras in vehicles at the Mill are just as bad having a handgun.
