new 950 v rated coil for my V3i, love it. 1944 dime first 10 minutes

Went out to an old school site that had 3 schools thre. on 1889, 1924, 1937. All torn down by 1978, My new 950 coil is able to handle RX 15, Tx boost on. The first 10 minutes I hit a 1944 merc at 6 inches. It hit hard like it was only 3 inches. I cannot believe how stable the 950 coil is. It is not chatty at the max setting. It pinpoints right on it. I believe it could hit a quarter coin at 8-10.If you don't have one of these coils you should.

How accurate are the VDI's? How trashy was the site?
Anyone else have similar experience with this coil over the stock V3i coil?

ir was not that trashy and the VDIs were right on. Dug a little trash but that goes with the game.

I wished I had one for the last 2 weeks while hunting beaches in Florida. The D2 was very unimpressive and ended up using then10x 12 with some success . I will have one hope before to long.

I use 950 concentric....and it does well here.....but low minerals in my area.

I like the 9 inch spider eclipse even better than the 950. The balance is definitely better and target tones seem to be cleaner.

When I talked to Carl, I was told the two 950 coils were the same coil in different housings.

Which coil is the best for the salt water beach in Connecticut the 950 ot the 950 spider? I will be putting it on a V3I.

Thanks,

As I stated earlier in the post there is NO operating difference. Same internals different case.

A lot of people mention that the 950 seems to be more resistant to EMI than the standard 10DD coil. I have not seen any of these reports relative to the spider, probably because it has not been around so long.

I have been looking specifically for comparisons of the old 950 "flying saucer" vs the new spider in terms of EMI susceptibility, or if the more open case design would have any effect on that.

What part of same coil different housing seems to escape you guys?.......:rage:

Re: "What part of same coil different housing seems to escape you guys?.."

Because coil housing materials, particularly the conductance of the material, and the shape and thickness of the housing around a coil are obviously :poke:very important factors in determining it's susceptibility to EMI.

I don't doubt what Carl has said regarding the new 9" Spider vs the 950 Eclipse, but as someone who owns/uses both coils, there are other differences which several users including myself have highlighted in previous/other posts 9" Spider Eclipse on this forum!

Both coils are concentric coils. Concentric coils are less affected by EMI than DD coils. The 10" coil is a DD coil. The old 950 coil was a solid filled coil and therefore could not be rebuilt. The 9" spider and 10" can be rebuilt and are not epoxy embedded and are therefore lighter. According to Carl (former lead engineer) the 9" and 950 coils are identical electrically.

Therefore, according to Whites except for physical differences there should be no performace differences such as resistance to EMI or depth..:confused:
