    Sovereign coils

    Yes, got those thanks. I replied with Photos. NB: it's a BBS 800 coil- not a Tornado The 'Tornado' was a thinner 10" coil. (I came up with the name for it!)

    You Could Win A Brand New Garrett Apex Metal Detector!

    Has anyone bought the xp deus back pack and find pouch
