I was relic hunting this past Saturday with the Minelab Safari and the 8' Sun day search coil. The coil would not allow me to pinpoint a target. It was all over the place sounding off to the front, back, and sides. I got pretty flustered. I like this little coil, being 3 inches smaller and some lighter than the 11' coil, but it was all but useless to me about halfway through our hunt. Has anyone else by chance used this 8' coil with either the Etrac or Safari and experienced the same issue? I put the 11' coil back on and there is no problem pinpointing. Strange. The smaller 8' coil should be more precise in pinpointing but it isn't. Guess which coil I'm using next hunt.
