    Re: 6X10DD coil on my MXT and my first day coinshooting with it

    Thanks to all for the info, and to Ankh for the pic and part number, although it does not match the one on the Kelly page, they have the # as 8013216, do you think it is different or did they just change part numbers on it?, also head to head so to speak what are the differences between the 6x10 and the D2? has any one worked with both, and if so did one do better under certain conditions then the other? please let me know, and again thanks for the info.

    Chuck.

    Sounds like I may have to get a 6X10. I think I would like that more than the D2 I have. Anyone interested in a trade?

    Re: 6X10DD coil on my MXT and my first day coinshooting with it

    Hi Tim ,

    First of all let me apologize for forgetting to congratulate you on your great finds in my last post .
    Congratulations on your great finds !! I am really liking the M-6 a lot .The controls are simple but they really do a lot . It has a discrimination button , a sensitivity button which turns it on does the battery check and of course sets the sensitivity ,a toggle switch which controls a beach trac setting and puts your regular auto trac feature on or off . Then forward of the box and just in front of the ID meter there is a trigger switch that when pushed all the way forward allows you to hunt in the 7 tones , when the button is set to the center position it is just uses one tone and when you pull it all the way back toward you to get a numeric depth reading as it also pinpoints with a series of square bars that tell you how well you are pinpointing by the number of bars going across the bottom of the screen ( all the bars showing means you are pinpointing perfectly) .

    I like to keep the discrimination low ( right in the middle of the lower settings before you hit the Nickel area ) and crank up the sensitivity as high as conditions allow while leaving it in the 7 tone mode .

    The more you use the M-6 the more you will learn how to deal with being fooled by flat bottle caps and pull tabs .If your vdi is between 18 and 20 it is usually a nickel ( I have gotten some at 16 ) .
    but then the ground in your area may give you slightly different readings .

    Use your vdi and all the info on the decal below your screen it does help .It is also a good idea to dig everything when you are first getting to know your machine .

    Hey thanks Dirt Doctor!!!! I have always wondered about the M6. I run my MXT just like you do on your settings..........I have found one way to ID iron in the single tone mode and that is if the VDI locks on to say penny 70-74 I take and slightly move the coil off center of the target and then it usually will let me know by staying locked on or if it is iron it will say it is, then I do not dig, Tim

    The 5.3 is the small concentric coil........Totally different from the 6X10DD style...You can get any of these coils from a Whites dealer but, the SEF coil is made by another company........I am not too sure about those(SEF).....I know alot of minelab users have them but I have not seen too many people talk about them for Whites users, Tim

    Got my 6X10 on the say. Now hopefully the snow will melt and hold off just a little longer. Got a couple inches here the other day.

    Re: 6X10DD coil on my MXT and my first day coinshooting with it

    Im interested to see what you think of the 6x10 compared to the D2 (which I currently use) I was having problems with bottle caps the last time I was out, kept showing penny vdi.....wish I would have read this thread to try and move it off center a bit to see if it stays consistent. Will have to try that next time.

    Re: 6X10DD coil on my MXT and my first day coinshooting with it

    Hey there Mighty_Mace, what is your overall impression of the D2 so far? I have heard that it is a bottle cap magnet also, although as it is right now with the 950 Eclipse i dig a fair amount of those anyway, what do you think as far as depth gained over the 950?, let me know and thanks.

    Chuck.
