Georgia Button Found 8" Deep with White's MXT & 6x8 SEF Coil

Today was my first time out to go detecting in quite awhile. I have had the 6X8 SEF coil for my MXT from JW at Kellyco for several months and really have been itching to give it a try. I have played around in my home doing air test and it would hit a dime at 9"-the same as the stock coil! Today was the first day I felt like getting in the woods in quite awhile. I went back to one of my old spots and found this Georgia button at about 8" deep. The 6X8 has good separation and depth in real ground. I haven't tried the larger SEF, but for getting in the woods and bushes I think this is the best one. Now I can't wait to go back
