I personally prefer the 950 in these conditions because the coil design doesn't allow it to catch or hang up on stuff.If you look at the 12s design theres a lot of coils and supports that will catch a lot of stuff.If you mean detector stability they will be about the same both being concentrics.

With the solid cover, I think the 12 inch would do a great job in the fields.



Bells and whistles are nice, but nothing will substitute for the basic understanding of the hobby.

They are both concentric coils. The 12" has more coverage and might have a slight depth advantage. It will be heavier then the 9.5 and will see more ground under the coil. Therefore if the ground is bad it will have more to contend with then the 9.5.

Since you can get solid covers neither has an advantage with the stubble.

Quite a difference in price here also. The 12" is a coil I don't used, I had one but sold it. My ground requires DD coils.
