I do really need a Nel Sharpshooter coil?

I have a fisher F70 with the following coils:
The Fisher 11" DD coil
Nel Snake (6.5"x3.5")

Would there be any real upside for me to buy a Nel Sharpshooter (9.5"x5.5")? Maybe Winter is getting to me and I am restless. I keep thinking about it, but I can not seem to justify it in my head. I can only use one coil at a time. Maybe if I go outside in the snow with the F70 I would feel better. LOL

The snow season is just getting cranked up, so you will probably be ordering a new coil before to long. Personally, I like Fishers 5 x 10 DD better then the Sharpshooter I had. My 5 x 10 was a bit deeper. In fact, on this mornings hunt I dug a true 9" deep tab tail and ring at exact pin pointer deep. Anyway, I am very fond of the 5 x 10. And, there is no winter cure.

Interesting question fjs440. Even though this is an older thread.

I've had my F75 for several yrs now and I got a Snake coil for it almost immediately. That and the standard 11" biaxial coil is all I've felt I need at this point.

I put the Snake on for really bad trashy areas, and the 11" for everything else and I've been pretty comfortable with that. From my perspective, the difficiculty is to have the selfcontrol to NOT buy a whole bunch of different coils, because the "need" isn't necessarily there, but the "want" always is.
