The-Bone said:i personally would not be without my double d coil now....the biggest advantage is the ability to cover a long yet narrow rectangular area. by doing so you get awesome target seperation which prevents adjoining targets from altering the value of the target you just went over....best $$$ i spent for an accessory
Yeah, I'm starting to use the wiggle method more and more.....its faster and just as accurate.Sandman said:Actually I find pinpointing very easy with the DD coils by doing the "Minelab wiggle." I too believe in using a probe to locate the coin by touch and popping it out.
Frankn said:Nice picture but it is BS. The concentric has 2 windings in the coil. One at the extreme outside edge and one in the inside edge. It is constantly transmitting and receiving. If that picture were true, I would not pick up at 2' which I do. The concentrate goes deeper than the DD for the same size coil. The concentric pinpoints better. I can exactly locate a quarter, then push my scribe in the ground and touch it every time. The DD does have a wider pattern, but since I scan side to side it makes little difference. The DD has 2 coil sets sitting side by side to get the wider pattern. That means it has two sweet spots, one in the center of each coil set. This hinders pinpointing rather than help it. As far as target separation, I have no problem, I merely move my detector slightly and can read either target. I am using a Whites XLT that is 10 years old with the original stock coil. The new Whites top dog has switched back to concentric on the latest version. I personally think the DD is icing on the cake for the sales dept. I have no trouble finding things like ruby rings and gold chains, and with a 10 year old detector, it's all profit. Why waste money on cake icing. Frank
Frankn said:Gleaner 1 , What would be your considerations for a better coil?
I only ask 2 things from my detector. Go down deep and tell me where it is. All the other info it gives me is icing on the cake. Frank
