The Sports Car of Search Coils!

I use to think bigger was better until I used the 5" EXcelerator Search coil for my White's Metal Detector. I hunted an old park in San Francisco and within one hour I had found four silvers, one being a Barber. I also found a lot of clad coins (over two hundred) and a few wheat pennies. I have hunted this park before but with a larger coil. I found the EXcelerator gave me better coverage because it wasn't being masked by unwanted targets.

This little coil saw through and under trash. It read multi-targets, so a lot of holes had more than one coin in it! I had a fun day at the park with this little coil. I feel that sometimes a larger coil misses coins that are being masked by other targets but with this little coil it can steer itself through all the trash like a spots car.
