Xp deus 2 with 9 inch or 11 inch coil


Well-known member
Will the 9 inch coil or the 11 inch coil do it for me ? I hunt primary grass areas, but during the summer I hunt a lot in the water wading. Once in a while I go to the beach areas of the pacific coast , while there are times I hunt the mountain areas of the Sierras. Decisions, decision. Which way do I go George ...

I went with both. They each have their own place. When walking out on a huge beach the 11" is on. In the forest, park, with all the obstacles the 9".They're both great coils. I would like to see more coils like the HF elliptical or something.

Also, like everyone mentions, in the water the 9" coil is going to be much easier to use, and with its depth I don't think you're going to miss anything.
The 11" coil would be better than the 9" one. Because you will cover more ground with it. I have the deus 2 and i have dug a back of an earring 10" deep. It take's awhile to learn how to use it too.

From your descriptions of where you hunt, I would go with the 9" if the grassy areas are lawns.
If fields than beach and field 11"
I have the 9"on my Deus2 and had all of the coils for my Deus1.
For the most part I run the 9" on both all the time and don't think I'm missing anything.
But I also don't think you can go wrong with either coil.

I recommend the 9” as it is A LOT more powerful than most realize. The 11” would be great for the beach/ocean however, how often are you gonna go there? I’ve had a XP Goldmaxx Power for many years, and I have ALL the coils including the NELS. NOTHING works as good especially in separating iron than the 9” round. And based at what I’m seeing so far,,, I’m thinking it’s probably the same w the D2.
Just my 2 cents worth….

I have the 11 because it came with the machine because I didn’t want to wait. I can tell you that the 11 separates very well. I have pick out coins in areas I have been over many times.
Whichever one you get, make sure you wash out the coil cover often
