Which Simplex to use

C.J.M.

Well-known member
I need to set up one of my Simplex for beach hunting only.What I have is a 2.68 simplex that came in a package .It came with NEL 9.5"x5.5''d.d. coil and the stock 11" coil.It was Bought New both coils work great,but the Nel sort of stands out .Also have a New Simplex+ with stock coil and it came with 2.78 update. Which one would you recomand and what mode works the best ?I would be in shallow salt water and wet & dry sand.Does it need to g.b. & beach mode or g.b. and all metal mode? Thank you cjm
 
Beach Detecting Large coil you are not doing Tot Lots
2.77 and 2.78 version really depends om your soil and location
2.78 has a mute button to turn off the speaker from the PinPointer and EMI while digging targets

2.77 has the mute as well. I'm running the 2.77

Sorry. Haven't run mine on the beach yet.
And I only have fresh water beach.
Personally I love the 2.77
Wish I could offer more.
 
I personally like the smaller coil on the beach, it lighter and easier to swing. It’s still going to chirp and stop you for a better look. The coverage 9.5 vs 11 is insignificant. The depth, pretty darn close. I run 2.77 and it works good and I don’t have a problem in the wet either when I take the Ground bal. down to 0. you may get a little noise when you hit some black sand but that’s expected.
 
If you are wading in the water the 9.5 may be easier to use in the surf. Rough wave action can be tough with a larger coil. I have not used either coil on the simplex but have used both sizes on the Whites MXT and MX5. I doubt you will notice much depth difference on the wet or dry sand. Heck try them both.
