Have not used the 17 in. yet, has any one noticed much increase in depth or just better coverage. Got some crop field relics spots I may re-visit, if the depth difference is worth the extra weight....sling or no sling:laughing7:

The only depth I noticed with the 17" coil was the depth of the pain in my elbow & shoulder. I went back to the stock coil I could swing all day long.

Maybe an inch extra in depth at the most. The added coverage is worth it to me. Use a sling if needed......I do.

It’s not just about ultimate depth- but the width of the deep part gets wider as well. You have more chance of finding something deeper in the same swing.
