Coils for the V3i

What type of coils are good on the V3i and still get decent depth. The one I am waiting on comes with a 10d2 I think. Going to use it in parks and a few schools that are still open around Sacramento California.

the 6x10 is a good one for more trashy areas but you'll lose a couple inches in depth to the d2. I also have the detech ul13 and if I could only have one that would be it. goes very deep and separates very good. it is also very lite for a coil that big. I have a dime buried in my test garden at 9.5" and the v3i with the detech is the only one out of my six detectors that will hit it. the d2 is actually a very good coil but it feels really heavy. the 6x10 works great in high grass and in the woods because its a closed coil and doesn't get hung up on stuff. with it I can hit the 7" silver dime I have buried with the right settings. if you use a different coil make sure you change you coil settings and adjust your recovery delay accordingly. I usually run RD about 50 with the 6x10 and about 85 to 90 with the UL13".

I agree with john57 on the Detech 13

I agree, the 6x10 is great for the trash, but in my ground looses closer to 3" over the stock D2 coil.

8x6 SEF Detech. Best coil selection I ever made.

Mars SNIPER coil works very good with full RX power. Nice depth and very good target separation!
