My Fisher quest

So I really like the fishers..... After having a few 1200 series I got a 1265 from the bay as a non working unit .... Hoping to just buy battery packs and it would be up and running....well I put the new battery packs in and it smoked and orange flame she smoked.... So off to the bay she and the extra coils went.... I managed a coin strike with the the 8" and 5" coil. Now I had a coinstrike in the past with 10.5" and 8 but never gave it much ground time because I had to many other Detectors I really liked at the time. So iam very excited to get this one and try my cellar hole colonial sites. I really feel the 5" coil is going to smoke the trashy square nail sites I love to hunt ! What do you guys with experience with the 5" coil have to say....any setting where the 5" coil may differ from the other two bigger coils. Hate to say it but my Whites IDX seems to be to dang good and I want to prove it wrong with another detector but it's been tough in my mild ground and iron tarded sites.

Went out to a big field for about an hour..... Ran 3 programs that I saved from a mix of different threshold and sensitivity ..... It was a very clean field with minimal signals. New permission so we stayed out back. Did dig some jumpy deep signals. All were non ferrous trash,like bullets ,bird tags,copper wire and such. Deepest was $ignal was 9". Nothing round ! My brother n kaw scored 3 brass buckels from 1800's. It did run smooth for me, I just need to swing above something good ! I was using the 8" coil.
