Went to a beach at our local lake this morning to try out the new SP22 coil. I was VERY impressed with this coil especially compared to the 11" stock coil. I started out in chest deep water and worked my way to the shore. The coil produced very little drag underwater and was a pleasure to swing. Where this coil excels in comparison to the stock coil is its stability. I was able to run the SP22 with six bars sensitivity and it ran quite as a mouse,,,,absolutely no chatter at all. I was only able to run the stock coil with four bars sensitivity before it began to chatter too much. I felt that I was getting about the same depth as I was getting from the stock coil. If you are a fresh water hunter, I can highly recommend the new SP22 coil. I only use the Simplex for water hunting so can't comment on how the SP22 does in dirt hunting.
