I'll Try Asking Again...

I'm wondering how the Wader with 10 inch coil behaves in the salt? This is my thinking... 10 inch coil would cover more ground for fresh drops in shallow saltwater. I realize the Wader may not go as deep as my Excaliburs, but the Wader looks great for Caribbean travel and with 10 inch coil perhaps good for fresh drops? From past experience with a Diver and 8 inch coil, for depth one has to run sensitivity hot. My concern is that with the 10 inch coil I might have to reduce sensitivity even more than with the 8 in saltwater?

So, has anybody used the 10 inch coil in the salt?

Sorry never used the 10" on my Wader as mine has the 8" hardwired.
If you can't get an answer here to your question, your best bet is to call Gary at Detectorpro or
PM Mr. Bill.

The Wader to me was similar to the Fisher 1280X in operation. Therefore I would guess that the use of the larger coil would have you turning the sensitivity down a bit. My 1280X would go nuts with a 11" coil around salt...but the 8" worked fine.

I use the wader down on the Florida coast with no problem with the ten inch coil. I am no expert but have found several rings with the wader. I run the discrimination at around two and back the sensitivity down barely to stop the chatter very close to ten.
