Here in the UK the Nautilus comes with the 10" as the stock coil. What is the most popular coil being used in the US?

I have found the 15" coil is not so good for coin size objects but it is much better on larger targets.

The 10 inch best any Relic Hunting. The 15 coil had depth in few inches. First,. If hunt real Sandy-Loam Soil with low trash you can hit button, bullets and plates deeper then 10 inch Coil. If hunt ground that is hot soil ,clay, or such house sites the 15 Inch coil may not best choice. I found super deep Hut, Trash Pits in camp other site been claimed " Hunted Out" with 15 coil and even a 1851 One Dollar Gold Coin in camp missed 10 Coil . If have old site that picked clean or hunted out you should try 15 coil, you be surprised how target are left in site and my be killer find. Chuck

I guess I'm in the minority,But I mostly used the 8'' coil on my Nautilus IIba I had.I'm an old coin hunter mostly so some of my sites are a little trashier than a relic hunters.

I use the 8 inch most of the time.N/T

8" in iron infested colonial sites. 10" for field hunting.

6 inch most of the time on the 2Ba, very good on button-sized targets and smaller. For years the 10 inch came standard (and in the early years-MF and LF- the only sized coil available for the detector). The 10 inch was favored by relic hunters in Virginia as a good all around coil, giving good results on small items like bullets and larger ones like projectiles. As sites got vacuumcleaned many hunters switched to the 15 inch, which gives outstanding depth on buttons, projectiles, and trash pits. Of course this larger coil limits field time, unless you're Popeye. I used an 8 inch on my DMC and was pleased with it and still use one sometimes on my early 2B, but mostly keep the 10 inch on that unit.
