I have used a Hunter coil on a T2,it was 'ok' i guess,but could not see a great amount of advantage between this coil and the stock coil,they are basically very similar in size,was lucky that i sold it for the same price i paid for it,cannot personally see any advantage in spending out money for a similar a similar size coil that performs the same really.Of course if your stock coil has developed a problem and is faulty then the Hunter coil could be a good move.

Must admit i really like NEL coils and the build quality is top notch and work very well for a aftermarket coil,but replacing a like for like size wise coil i cannot see any major advantage if any,only advantage that i can see is if you have a specific use for either a larger or smaller than stock coil then that does make alot of sense.

Mega, I don't have the 11" DD for my Omega, just the 10" concentric and now need a DD and want it a bit larger. Thanks for your input. HH jim tn

Jim it seems more people opt for the Tornado coil and seem to like it and do pretty well with it.

Thanks, wyohunter. Will check it as well. Over all with my other Omega's I've done well with the Omega 11" DD coil, but since I only have been using the 10" concentric and want to add a larger coil I thought of even going slightly bigger then the 11". HH jim tn

Jim, I had an Omega and an F5. If you want just a tad bigger than stock 11 DD, you might want to consider the Mars Tiger coil (if you can find it). I liked it on my F5 and like it even more on my F19. It is slightly deeper than the 11 DD and the weight is very similar. To me it is the ideal compromise between really big and just bigger than stock. I really like my Detech Ultimate as well but that's a much bigger coil than stock and comparable to the Tornado.



Active detectors: Fisher F19 LTD, Nokta Fors CoRe, Makro pointer and way too many coils.
Previous detectors: Bounty Hunter Discovery, Fisher F44, Omega 8000 V6, Minelab X-Terra 705, Fisher F5

Thanks dfmike, I guess what I am hoping for is light weight and 4" more depth. LOL. HH jim tn
