I'm looking to pick up a NEL coil for my "green" T2. I like the NELs when I had it on a AT Pro. I'm between the sharpshooter and the hunter. What is the consensus of recommendations?

I have the sharpshooter and I like it a lot. Very light and I fill it is well balanced for the green T2 which I also have.. It fits in some pretty tight places. So far this year it has found me over $120.00 in coins, some toy cars, 2 watches, some keys, kids tokens, 4 rings, some kids tokens and of course some other junk! This coil was put on my T2 the day I got it and has not been off yet. GREAT COIL!

My vote also goes for the Sharpshooter coil,for some reason and i am not sure but the Hunter coil seems to be the least popular one in the NEL lineup,most folks tend to go for either the Sharpshooter or goes straight for the Tornado but miss the Hunter coil out.

Deus and Nexus MP main everyday detectors

Displays on a Detector are really the equivalent of relying on sub-titles,give me a Analogue machine anyday.

Some of my site specific use machines.
TDI Pro 20'' Mono
Nexus SE dual 9'' coil
Nexus MP 14x13
Fisher TW-5 twin box
Crossbow PI 14x9 Mono
Mirage PI 5'' Mono
DFX 18'' Detech
T2 SEF15x12
IDX Pro 15'' Concentric
B1 and B3
Trident11 Extreme NEL Snake

Sharpshooter gets my vote for its weight and target separation and it's as deep in my book as the 11"DD stock coil.

Garrett AT-PRO NEL Tornado 12x13 coil & 5x8" DD coil
Fisher1265x 8" coil
Tesoro Bandido II 8" coil
Deteknix X-Pointer
Raptor 31c digger and Whites Digmaster digger

I am certainly no expert on metal detectors. But I like how much easier it is to pinpoint and I don't miss the extra weight of the 11DD. They both seem to have the same depth.

I use the NEL Hunter on my T2 Classic and really love it!! It didn't add a ton of weight and I noticed a 1 1/2 - 2 inch increase in depth over the stock 11" coil.

Hello Everyone.........I run a NEL Hunter coil on my Omega 8000 and I love it.
I have every coil size from 5" to 13" for my Omega but the NEL Hunter coil is my favorite!
Runs smooth, ground balances well & does not add too much weight over the 7 x 11 dd stock coil.
