Hi Greg,
north Knox here. I've done some of those tubing creeks/rivers (depending on season) on the Crosby side. Found sunglasses, full beers, dope pipes, shoes, and various other interesting items, but no gold yet. Hope you can do better than I have!

As to coils, I'm the wrong guy to ask. I think ROBOCOP and others above covered it tho. I like the 10" stock coil and didn't want to put another way for water to infiltrate on my machine. Just threw it out there as an option Ive seen others talk about. I would think that a smaller coil would be better for the type of waters you are hunting to get between the large rocks.
fwiw, I use the CTX in fresh water and the Excal is used solely at salt beaches.

I really don't know what I need, except maintenance, and checking the knob settings.

Next question, Champ--what coils are available for the Excal?
