Just curious if anyone has used the coil Whites includes in the MXT pack, looks like a nice coil?

Jerry, if you mean the 13 inch Ultimate, I have used that coil on the DFX. It is very light for it's size and surprisingly sharp in medium trash. It seemed to be deeper than the stock 9.5 inch concentric by about 1.5 inches, but nothing scientific to back that up. I used this exact coil on a MX5 and DFX and it worked much better on the DFX with better stability. I use a SEF 10x12 now and prefer it over the 13 inch Ultimate. I bought mine from Kellyco before Whites started selling them. My only complaint was the white color.

If you are talking about the Ultimate 13, it is a great coil for large areas with no-medium trash. It does not do well in the woods or fields with stubble of any kind. I have 2 DFXs, one with a 6x10 on it and the other has the U13. Bag has the 950s. 6" and 4x6 but they very rarely find their why to a machine. Recently the U13 has been the only coil/machine used to clean up the quarters at a local middle school.

I have used the 13" ultimate coil, mostly on the beach. It covers a lot of ground, is lightweight and seems pretty deep. Still kind of leaning towards the 6X10, but will test the two on the same beach next trip and see how they compare.

I Agree RLOH the 10 x 12 excellorater coil is the way to go on my DFX 300

This spring I will give the white 12 concentric a try on my DFX 300 not fond of it but it is a deep seeker they say.

Never heard anything good about that coil.. have one that came with a used machine and it was shot, would not GB non stop noise and very heavy.. red lots of bad stuff about the 12 concentric. The U13 is very light and probably a better buy if you don't already own the 12"
