Why did they Add a 4" Search Coil to the Pioneer 501 Professional?

Bounty Hunter 4 Inch Coil A most outstanding search coil used to find coins in trashy areas where larger search coils simply do not work well. Larger search coils locate multiple trash targets tuning out single treasures. The 4" search coil efficiently separates targets tuning out and eliminating unwanted trash while still indicating most good treasures. Larger search coils find it difficult to be used in tight spots. The 4" search coil can easily slide through plants, shrubbery, roots, and can be used close to metal buildings, under grandstands, and sidewalks. The 4" search coil is outstanding for finding smaller items like thin rings, small gold items, and even gold nuggets.
