Anyone using a 12.5" NEL or CORS on the Racers?

The perfect coils for my style relic hunting are fairly light 12'-13". I haven't been able to put down the crazy lightweight 13" Detech Coil on my "other machines". I'd much rather be using a faster, more sensitive Racer, but love the 2 more inches ground coverage at same weight. I have the 15" racer coil & it's crazy deep but too heavy for me. So what are any thoughts on these aftermarket coils vs. the 11" stock ones?
Thanks in advance,
Bill

Personally I would look for a good used Fors CoRe and put a 13" Mars Discovery coil on it and make it my "big coil" machine. When using the large coils the CoRe balances so much nicer over the Racer series. It would be very similar to putting a large coil on the Red Racer....as far as setting up and same vdi numbers.

For Mars coils I like the elliptical style of the TIGER better rather than the fully round "Discovery". The Makro 15" coil is just far too heavy & bigger than I need for my sites (& shoulder;) Dilek please make me a prototype 7x13" DD Coil that's thin like the Detech ultimate & works on all the Racers. I will promote the heck out of it & use it in every new video :)

I like the Narrow coils best for relic hunting myself...Rember the Bigfoot for Whites...Something narrow and maybe not so long would work in the woods for me!

Although most of my sites require smaller coils, the Detech Ultimate coil is a killer coil. I'd add one to my kit if they made it, just for beach and the 5% of the time I can use it at turf sites.

If Makro Nokta made a similar coil, they'd sell a ton of them, way more then the 15" coil.

Agree 100% Brian!

I found that the larger coils just do not balance well on the Racer 2 and just didn't seem to add that much more depth. But then again I primarily hunt really trashy areas and large coils aren't helpful.
