Thanks Diggindirt, Do you know how much Whites charges for the 12" mod?

I had one of the first conversions of the BHID to "300" coil. As a matter of fact, White's only had the black coils available at that time!

Since it's been a while, I really don't want to post the price as it might have changed since I had it installed!

You need to send the detector to White's repair center in VA, (Centerville Electronics). You should call and speak to Bob, super nice guy!!!

I don't have the current number available.

Hey Willee,

Just some food for thought....:shrug: Did you do anything special to the connector on the EX coil or do any depth testing for waterproofing? Also, in theory anyway, a 12" conical should run circles around a 10" DD on most beaches and in neutral to low FE ground for depth. I would think the DD coil would work well in "black sand" though. Am I "all washed up" here?

Bells and whistles are nice, but nothing will substitute for the basic understanding of the hobby.

I recently read your article about the Excelerator coil (Willee)
I did however locate a special long cable version of the D2 from,Warrens Detectors here in Florida.
I was able to keep the unit as a hip mount and the D2 is a BEAST.
If there is a neutral buoyancy coil,then this may very well be it.
Deeper targets,smaller targets and super sensitive with the Gray Ghost headphone mod.
Looking to do the remote pinpoint in the next week or so.
Thanks for the information!

I did the yellow 300 coil mod on my older Beach Hunter. I originally had the 9" disc. Purchased the coil directly from Whites and followed the instructions as outlined by the OP, piece of cake.
