I've tired the smaller elliptical, think it's called pig something?

Didn't like it, prefer the stock elliptical.

One coil that i have use on both a borrowed Lobo and my Vaquero is the NEL Snake coil 6.5''x3.5'' terrific coil for trashy sites and currently on my 'V' for when the crops come off any week and this will allow me to get in between the stubble,the Snake coil is like a Laser beam in between the trash.

Deus and Nexus MP main everyday detectors

Displays on a Detector are really the equivalent of relying on sub-titles,give me a Analogue machine anyday.

Some of my site specific use machines.
TDI Pro 20'' Mono
Nexus SE dual 9'' coil
Nexus MP 14x13
Fisher TW-5 twin box
Crossbow PI 14x9 Mono
Mirage PI 5'' Mono
DFX 18'' Detech
T2 SEF15x12
IDX Pro 15'' Concentric

Anyone use the 12x10 " coil on the LOBO?,If the lobo & Vaquero have both 4 point coil connectors ,I would think the vaquero would work being a manual ground balance detector ,not to sure about the LOBO:unsure:What say you:shrug:

'original' Lobo that works at 20 kHz, or the current Lobo SuperTRAQ that's been around for quite some time? They don't share the same search coils.


PS: Of these models, all of the Lobo 'series' and the Vaquero, I much prefer the Vaquero with the high tone mod.
