The best all around coil I use is the 8 x 6 SEF followed by the 6 1/2" Eclipse (5.3) , 5" DD Detech and the 4 x 6 Eclipse Shooter. I also have the 13" Ultimate, 9" Spider, 10" D2, 950 Eclipse and 12" 300 Concentric. Coils are like golf clubs and fishing lures you change for the conditions encountered.

If you go from the 12" Coil to the 13 you will loose depth because the 12 is a concentric and the 13 is a DD, and the fact is Concentrics are more sensitive and have better Discrimination.

Here is a link to the Keith Southern video comparing the S.E.F. 8x6 butterfly coil to the Whites 6x10 DD coil that was mentioned on page 1 of this thread. https://youtu.be/pBT5idh8_Kk

The hottest coil for the MXT is the 5.3, It is the most sensitive by far, the 4x6 is no different in sensitivity to the 6x10 but all of them are better than the SEF coils, because they are more sensitive and the search pattern is more uniform,

Yeah it's good, I bought them all, but for tiny nuggets the 5.3 is the coil to beat,

Another vote for the SEF 8x6 coil, it stays on my MXT.



To many detectors, not enough places to hunt.....

Yeah they are good for coins and relics but not sensitive enough for tiny nuggets

The mounting point on the SEF has to be one of the best out there.

3 Coils that i use regular on the MXT/DFX range are the SEF8x6,5.3 and for deep pasture work the 12''Hotshot coil,for a 12'' Concentric coil its not only deep but also very very light for its size,i guess its because the coil case is foam filled rather than resin as in some coils.

The 10x6 coil was my favourite for many years till the small SEF came out,only coil that i have never used or bought is the 4x6 one not sure why it looks very small and cannot see a use for it on my detecting sites,the worst coil that i own and it is a Whites coil is the 1400DD its possibly deeper but has one major downside and that is the weight,its not the best coil too swing all day long.

I've been using the little 8" Detech SEF butterfly coil and loving it for separation in the trashy areas and have pulled out a few nice items. The more I use the butterfly coil, the more I'm liking it. I always like my standby stock 9.5 coil also.
