Starting to really like the SEF coil

I wasn't thrilled with the 10x12 SEF coil the first few times I used it. It weighs a ton and wasn't finding much more than I normally find with any coil. The last few times I've been out with this coil it has produced. It is amazing how high I can run the sensitivity on the old XS and it runs smooth. Yesterday I went to a park that I have pounded to death way more times than I can remember. This place is full of rusty nails so you can usually squeak something out. This is from a 3 hour hunt. All the silver had rusty nails in the hole with them except the 1960 rosie which was 8" deep straight on edge. The mercs,both 1918, were about 6" and one had two nails and a rusted nut in the hole.
The barbers were a good 8" down, 1907&1911. One amazed me, it was laying flat at that depth, but had two rusted nails right on top of it. Wish I would have had the camera with for that one. The crosshairs would show iron, but from one direction I could get a pretty good silver warble. Also got the toasted 1885 Indian and 6 wheaties. Probably keep swingin the sef for a while. Enjoy!

Those results make me want to try one. Nice. ANy time you can pick up silver, let alone several silvers I am impressed. I have been tempted by the little SEFP coil. The 8? Right now, I am new to Minelab and only have the Pro coil on my Explorer. Thanks, for sharing. Gives me thoughts of trying something new.

A 6x8 sef is my next purchase, im hoping it will settle my machine down a little. Getting tired of all the sounds that never repeat and i hope that will help atleast a little. Starting to wonder if my soil is highly mineralized or something

Five silvers and an Indian, I'd say thats real good!!N/T

I was thinking about getting a 10x12sef for me SE. I hear many good things about this coil. Does it really feel that much heavier than the pro-coil? I guess I could look it up...

10x12SEF = 1.3 lbs
Pro-Coil = 1.1 lbs

So only a few ounces difference? Not too bad...

Glad you have a good report too.

Great finds! Been using the 10X12 for a couple years, hardly take it off ever...great for trashy spots too, even tho it's a larger coil.



oh yeah

Ive been running two of the SEF coils almost exclusively. the 10x12 for deep open areas and the 8x10 for the real trashy sites (construction, iron bogs, ect.) I realy like the performanc of those coils here in my mineralized soils.
