    Good day at the Fort using the 15”

    I had a good day today beautiful weather and some finds. First I wanna say how much I like the 15” coil. I was expecting heavier my ATP with the Storm and Tornado was so much heavier I was always complaining about my arm a shoulder. I swung for 4 hours no problem and it hits deep and surprisingly good separation. It reminded me exactly of the 11 inch except it was bigger and went deeper that’s it. So anyway I found a round ball, a button, a 1898 IHP which is very rare for me for some odd reason, all six that I do have are always roached and a mystery Cent. Thanks for looking.

    Nice!
    I was going to get one of the big coils last year but everyone talked me out of it saying I wouldn't really get much more depth.

    Cool finds and thanks for the update on the 15" , so far I have heard some really good things about it. I wont be able to get to any good areas until the spring so it would be pointless for me to get it now (even though I want to) , they should be readily available by then too. I think this is gonna help in some of the areas I have to cover miles of ground.

    I used it at the park, separation was great....it’s the same as the 11”, little heavier, wider spread and deeper. It’s not just for fields in my opinion. I really like it I’m not just saying it because I have it.

    Sweet hunt truth I remember my at with the storm coil. Those coils go deep you lose some depth on small targets but for bullets relics larger silver they are great just don't want to use in trashy areas. Hey my friend are you going to post your 2018 finds at the end of the year I know you've been killin it.

    Oh well I can say I had 2 of them for my ATP the Storm which killed my arm so I bought the Tornado which wasn’t much better I mean my arm was hurting bad I’m serious. This one’s light compared to all the other 15” coils I’ve tried. The CTX 3030 with a big coil will break you arm off.
