Whats the best coil you have used on your MXT Pro

Just curious what coils others have used with their MXT Pro. I am thinking it is about time to invest in maybe a coil or two and would appreciate your opinions. I relic hunt and occasionally hit some old home sites where trash is present. I have the 12 in. coil that was supplied when I bought the unit new from Whites. Thanks, Bill

Hi Bill, I personally like the 9.5 stock and then the 5.3 specially where there's a lot of trash. HH, Nancy

Hey Bill, I haven't been out with the All pro yet. But the 950 coil is a good all around relic hunter. I had one on the Mxt and it did great on civil war sites as well on old homesites. If you're looking for one for trashy areas, look at the 6x9 eclipse. I may get that one myself. So many choices. Good luck on whichever coil you choose. Robert

Want to thank everyone who responded. A lot of choices here. I contacted a buddy of mine who who has a few of the ones mentioned here, 6x10, 950 and 5.3, he is bringing them over to let me borrow for a week to try out. He also has the ultimate 13 that he says is pretty good as well. I will keep you posted as I try these different coils, try to do some video as well. Thanks again, I really did not want to take a chance on one till I had your opinions.

You're very fortunate that you've got a friend close by that has the coils for you to try. That 13" is a good coil but I sure wouldn't want to swing that thing often because of the weight. I feel you'll find which coil suits your needs best. Keep us posted as to which coil or coils you'll be getting. The Findmall Classified ads are a good place to purchase used coils. HH, Nancy

Nancy, do you feel like the 13 in. Ultimate is heavier than the stock 12" that came on it? I have been swinging it and I guess I am just used to it now, it does not bother me a bit. I guess I will just try it to see. Thanks for your help. HH, Bill

I liked the 9" spider coil the best overall on the mxt-pro and MX-5. For dome reason I don't like the way the solid 950 coil feels and not seeing through the coil as easy.

Bill, not knowing how heavy the 12" coil is since I do not use one, I would assume that the 13" would be fine for you if you're use to swinging that big coil. Shouldn't be too much of difference. HH, Nancy
