I agree. Most times it's not that the small coil doesn't see it but improper swinging overlap. The chance is higher that you never had the coil over it.
I think that's the idea behind the gridding idea.
But more open areas I usually step up to my 5.5x10 DD.
10" coverage but separation of the 5" or close to it.
It's my favorite all purpose coil.
Now if kellyco would only stock the 5.5x10 concentric that I can put on my Ford relic l

Small coil is ideal for detecting between rocks and in gullies on my local beach. I only use 11" coil on open areas of the beach.

Slick is right on about the beach BUT if there is a volleyball court or other small jewelry area the small coil may get you some items you'd possibly miss otherwise. Also if there are swings or chain link fences you can get closer with the little guy. Depth and coverage go big, high EMI, environmental challenges or small gold go small. If you can only do one coil go with the stock 11. IMHO
