8" Ferret Hot Head Concentric Coil- Only A Myth To Me Until I Found This Picture & Post About It!
Posted by: Critterhunter
Date: July 24, 2012 04:11PM
Once again an ultra rare coil for the Sovereign reveals it's self. Up until today I'd already confirmed there was a 5" Ferret Hot Head for the Sovereign, but had only seen vague references to perhaps there being an 8" Ferret Hot Head Coil as well. Among those tiny obscure blurbs that hinted to it's existing, only a sliver of mention about it perhaps being a concentric.

Well, indeed it exists, and don't confuse it with the current 8" concentric Kellyco sells for the Sovereign. This Hot Head Ferret version was at least sold by Kellyco up until around 2005. The current 8" concentric being sold you can see I already posted in this thread and provided a picture of previously, but I'm providing the picture again after this 8" concenctric hot head ferret (first pic) so you can compare them side by side. Looks to me like two different coils maybe, and not just the stickers being different. If I had a choice of the two I'd opt for the current 8" concentric being sold, because among detectorists at least many various "hot head" coils for numerous machines were not said to be all that good. That' doesn't mean this one isn't of course though.

One interesting question...If this 8" hot head ferret is a concentric, then was the 5" Ferret Hot Head as well? And remember, that coil appears to be a different coil than the 5" Excelerator Detech did/does make, which is said to be 4 & 3/4" in size (prior pic and info already posted in this thread). I wonder if that puts that coil at being the smallest coil ever made for the Sovereign? Still can't nail down if there were/is a 6" Excelerator being made for the Sovereign too, but if I had to put money on it I think I remember seeing that there is and that it currently might be the only round trash coil Detech is making right now for the Sovereign. Vaguely I seem to remember the 5" Excelerator sold by Kellyco a couple years ago was replaced by what they called a 6" Excelerator, but I could very well be wrong about that.

Don't want to re-post the review of this 8" hot head here to bog down the sticky any more than I already have, so just google the words "8" hot head sovereign" and the guy's post reviewing it will pop right up.

One more ultra rare coil and it's pic down. Far as I know we are only missing the 11" Coinsearch coil and 5" Hot Head's pic? If anybody has those please post them and any review you can give or dig up.
