Cibola Coil


Not really sure how much smaller you want to go but it's hard to beat Tesoro's 5.75" coil (really a 6" coil) for hunting trashier sites. I use one on a original Bandido but it has a 10-turn manual ground balance adjust which easily allows tuning out ground when switching to a different coil. I've never used a Cibola so maybe others that have will chime in regarding coil changes with one. HH!

There are small DD coils available for those from Serious Detecting. I have one and it's awesome in my test garden with nail/coin targets

When I went for a sniper coil for my Vaq I had no problem instantly deciding on the small concentric.
Gets deep in good soil, not too shabby in mineralized soil, very sensitive and most importantly to me pop tops are easily avoided while using Tesoros with DD coils are very problematic while hunting in trash infested public sites...for me.
I avoided sites with tons of these things using a DD coil on my Vaq, using the concentric was a 180 degrees difference and a pleasure.
