Really like the Detech 8x6 SEF. It's a bit more sensitive than the stock pro coil 11 inch and causes me to slow down my sweeping motion even further. I haven't noticed any loss of depth in comparision to the pro coil.

Ditto on the 6x8 SEF

The 6x8 SEF coil is my primary go to coil simply becuase it does a better job sniffing out keepers from the trash which is where a good deal of the keepers are hiding and others avoid those areas. The DD design allows you to get close to stock coil depth (sees less ground and hence runs at a higher Sensitivity setting) and the smaller footprint can separate targets better.

Kellyco imports the Detech coils and it looks like it is on sale for the holidays at 30% off . . . that brings the cost down to $105 . . . that is a great deal.

The NEL Sharpshooter shouldn't be overlooked either

Actually the stock coil does a great job at seperation ..I just sold a x5 and a x8..when I bought these smaller coils for my safari i always ended up going back to the pro coil, I cannot say I found anything with the small coils that the pro coil wouldn't have found. I'll never use anything other than the pro coil on any FBS machine .

6x8 SEF is well balanced....meaning the coil depth is near equal throughout the coil footprint. I found the SunRay coils, albeit good quality, have a upside down cone shape to the depth range which means they have a greater depth in the center than they do at the edges. So when hunting a trashy area, you have to overlap nearly have the coil on a Sunray, but meannwhile the SEF you only overlap an inch or so.
