Dusted off the Explorer XS

I have not posted here in a long time. Well I dusted off the XS last weekend and found 11 Wheaties and a 1880 Indian. I was finding a lot of clad 5 inches deep. I knew there had to be some silver in this area but it might be just out of reach of the stock coil. I ordered a SEF 10 X 12 and it came in this weekend. 26 degrees this morning and the ground was frozen solid so I went fishing till noon. The temps warmed up a little so I got out and and gave the new coil a try. I was able to run the detector manual 27 with the new coil. The stock coil I had to run at 21. I focused only on deeper targets today and came home with 20 Wheaties, 2 Mercs, 1 Washington, and a small silver ring. I'm happy with this new coil and can't wait to get back out.

Great hunting, and great job with the new coil. Sounds like that 10x12 is more stable of a coil, at higher sensitivity levels...

Yes the coil is definitely a lot smoother I can't wait till Friday to get out again.

Thanks. I just found out 3 other people were hunting the same spot this past weekend. I wonder if they did as well as I did. Maybe I will have some company this coming weekend.
