Whites 4x6 coil in trash

I hunted a trashy park with my 4x6 attached to my MXT pro and was getting a lot of mixed signals thinking that the coil would cut through and unmask some silver coins. I was getting nothing but iron and clad coins all day. Depth was at max 5 inches on all signals. Meanwhile my friend using his Minelab with a 6 in DD coil was wiping me off with all the silvers including a King George large cent. Should I change to a concentric to get better results?

Try the Eclipse 5.3, it actually measures 6½"in diameter, it's a great little concentric coil...it separates well and is deep. I say this because it is all I ever use on my MX5 and has nabbed 8" deep silver dimes in my mild Kansas soil.



" If in doubt, dig it out"

I use various analog detectors, knobs and switches rule.

The 5.3 coil would also get my vote as well,i use one on my DFX on really trashy sites,pinpoints well,nice and light and just a very good all round coil,also use on on my IDX Pro.

I'm trying to trade my 4x6 to get a 5.3.

Was he beating you on depth or separation? I can't imagine it would be separation.
