Someone To Build Custom MXT Coil

I'm looking for someone to make me an elliptical or rectangular coil that is at least 24 inches long. I intend to use it in England hunting those very large fields. Email eggman@pgtc.com Thanks - Arkansas Gary

You'd be better with a coil closer to "standard" size , 8 to 12 inches . The extra ground coverage you gain will be negated by more iron , and good targets may be masked. Also larger coils seem to be less sensitive , in general , to smaller targets such as Medieval silver pennies.
Having said this , with a larger coil you may find deep artefacts or even a hoard !
Good luck , whatever coil size you go for . P.S. if you know the area in England where you are going , see if you can get hints on coil size used by local detectorists - different coils for different soils <img src="/metal/html/smile.gif" border=0 width=15 height=15 alt=":)">

I've had good luck using an 18 inch Big Foot, but it as a few odd quirks that I don't care for. Hammered pennies havn't been a problem. Sept. will be my 9th trip to England and I'm interested in a larger coil to cover more ground. Coverage is the name of the game on very large fields. After finding an old site and covering it with the big coil I switch to a 10 inch coil. It seem's to work fairly well for me.

My apologies , I thought it would be your first detecting trip to England. There are places where mineralization is quite bad , usually in the eastern counties , but as you've had success previously I would hazard a guess that normal soil (with good depth) conditions are prevelant where you detect over here.
I hope someone can sort you out with a decent coil and good luck for when you come over.
