It depends primarily on your ground. DD coils work best in mineralized ground and it was my favorite coil for the DFX and V series of detectors. That was many years ago and there might be something better now.



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

This coil works great on a DFX and just as well on the V series detectors. At the places I detect, I was routinely digging 8 inch coins with this coil. After much experimenting with settings-programs, I settled on a modified "High Pro" program with the detector set for the slowest sweep speed. For the record, I used the SEF 10x12 on four Whites detectors(DFX, MX5, VX3, and V3i). It was as light as the 10 inch dd(actually felt lighter), sensitive, and deeper in all cases. I also tried the 13 inch Ultimate, but liked the 10x12 better.

On my V3i, the 10x12 coil gets better separation and equal or more depth than even the U13. Both coils easily beat the stock 10DD coil. I just added a 10x12 to my Etrac partly due to how well that coil works on the V3i. So far, it's all positive but I've still not gotten the Etrac out into a real hunt yet.

I have to assume that the DFX will really like this coil.

i use the stock 9.5 conc. coil in places where i thank targets may be deeper.i mostly hunt in my area, here in east texas, ground is mostly mild to medium.if i should get a sef 10x12,being a dd,i was just wondering if i could get a little more depth?
