Waiting for the Mono coil to arrive, should be tomorrow. I hope it has better depth than the DD which is very good. Yet to get onto some yellow, plenty of bullets, shells and wire.Will be a couple of weeks before I can get to test it out. Living the dream in NE Victoria, Australia.

Good to hear hope it work out for you in Vic. ......Ordered the " Garrett 11x13" Mono Closed Search Coil (ATX)" more than 5 weeks ago, never got it so gave up on that deal.

Had the Mono out today on an area I have been over with the dd, It did pick up a feint signal which I dug and did not find anything. signal was there 3 lights and after 20 min dig - check - dig; it just dissapeared, Coil does seem to false slightly on Max Sens, not as bad as the DD. Picked up a .22 lead and a .223 steel casing badly rusted in another area, casing screemed and seemed to radiate into the degrading granite rock, over a 2 ft area ; thought I may be on a reef. Both were on the surface. Yellow light started blinking just as I got the shell signal but still worked very well in the 10 min to find the shell.
I think the Mono is giving stronger signals than the DD, time will tell; now have to get to an area with yellow in it.

I'm sure this is probably old news by now but Steve said in another post that the DD is vastly superior for small gold due to the huge increase in the magnetic field in the middle 5 inches of the coil. I can't remember which topic it was in but he is a wealth of knowledge so I take it to be fact.

The Infinium 7 x 3.5" DD coil works for me on the ATX when searching for tiny gold pickers, 10 x 5" DD coil can also be used for beach work.

I have since got a 4500, got good gold straight away, the ATX sits in the corner, If you want gold you can't go past the 4500. the coil selection is vast, My favorite is the coiltec 11" elite. The weight of the ATX killed it, plus the coil cable problems.
