There are few things a water hunter needs to be happy when doing his work...

A good bottom condition and a well prepared machine to do the job.

Many times I found good stuff but really struggling with a coil larger than 10".

Vlf or pulse, will depend for the most by the environment type, but talking about coils, there's no comparison for a diver with an 8".Not only saltwater is a reduced problem with it, but between rocks, between waves,between any other thing, I still prefer to use a smaller coil.

I'm in love with the AQ performance, for what I can see in multiple videos Joe OBN is publishing, but I only think about a smaller coil to be released soon.

I hope Alexandre+FT are already working on this thing, cause otherwise I'll be forced to wait until that moment will be reality.

8" coil is a rule for me.

12.5” too large, 8” too small..... 10”-11” just right! :smile:

I know Steve, 10" can be the good balance between ground coverage and water handling...But I need it smaller cause of multiple rocky places where seems to do crevicing for rings..Not always I'm able/strong enough to move big rocks downthere, so a smaller coil can help. The only option is to tilt the coil and use it like a pointer but I'm afraid for the cable connector on the coil housing to be soon damaged doing this practice.

Salt too is an enemy for big coils near me...I use also the 14x9 on the Ctx with reduced sens or Auto to keep it quiet...

I tell you one thing i requested many times to manufacturer which i was lucky enough to be able to approach,small coils.........the response is always the same:Niche market(For the Thames)but then the number of Permit holder increases every year (maybe +3000) and to satisfy their need for 30 years the only answer was the 4" concentric coil from Tesoro mounted on any Tesoros .

Now that the brand is defunct ...........good luck......years ago when Alexandre started to talked about the Impulse advantage in Iron i asked him as well and managed to get a 7" shell ship to him......so i am waiting.......hopeful,willing and able.

Niche market

Exactly! And You (producer)never know how your niche will react to the product launch until you make it for real.

But today, with all the forums and users reports, factories still seems to be on another far planet.

I'm happy to have a straight and easy contact with Alexandre and Rick (thanks to this forum and Steve) and even more happy about the fact Joe is in some way influencing the future model development....

      Hello All!!!
         Just wanted to wish all the East Coast hunters, and visiting hunters out there, to Be Smart and Safe, pre and post storm!!
          No amount of potential detecting finds is worth risking your life!! 
          As a Retired Public Safety Employee, i am extremely familiar with the many hazards during storms such as this one! 
        Good Luck Detecting!!🍀🍀
          I hope that you all suffer No loss, or damage!!  And i look forward to the many great finds that this storm is likely to produce!! Maybe I'll see a few of you out there, if i get the chance!!👍👍

      I have a Sovereign XS2-a Pro and was looking at aftermarket coils.  
      Any of you fellas use one?  Does it go deeper than stock 10 inch coil?  How's the stability?  
      Any other coils you guys use/recommend?

      I just posted a topic about finally finding some gold after several times to the beach.  I found more than that this time.  Just after I found the only ring of the session I looked up and saw an awful sight.
      The beach area I was now in is an 'all night' area and someone had been there through the night.  They had also been there with some Stella Green Bottles which was not unusual on an alcohol free beach.  What was shocking about it was that they had played target practice with their bottles and sharp, broken glass was all over the beach.  I wish I had taken a picture when I saw it but you'll have to use your imagination.
      Glass bottoms, tops and hundreds of pieces were laying everywhere and people had already walked through it in the dark.  I could see the footprints.  There were at least 4 broken bottles with the sharp bottom pieces sticking up.  The necks were strewn over a 50+ft area and fine glass that could stick you was in several different piles.  The beach groomers were just showing up and I wanted to call them over but what could they do?  I had to do it before someone got hurt.  It was time to give back to the beach that has given me so much over the years.
      I laid down my detector and scooped up the first pile with my scoop and put it in the empty box.  That was just a small dent.  It seemed to be everywhere.  I was hoping for help but no one stopped out of about 10 people.  This had to be cleaned up before the kids and families showed up.
      I worked like a coin spill.  haha  I went over it again and again in different directions as the sun was coming up enough to see the little and big shards.  Some of it was still glued to the label and other pieces had landed a fair distance away after the impact.  When I was nearly done I decided to take a few pictures.
      The glass started near my detector and went all the way up to my feet near the scoop.  It had happened after high tide and was not spread by the small waves.  The box was empty when I started and I wanted to keep detecting but I knew it was up to me to make the beach safer.  That really is more important sometimes than a few trinkets.
      The bottoms were the most dangerous as they stuck up with sharp points.  Joggers had missed them in the early dawn.  It is not a regular occurrence and that can make it worse because it is unexpected.  Anyway, I got it done and only found a couple of quarters after the pickup.  By the time I left there were 4 more guys detecting.  I hope they would have done the same as me if they saw the glass first.

      Thanks for all people involved in this project for their knowledge shared...
      Underwater test next week(I hope)

      G'day, just new to this forum. 
       
      Wondering everyones opinions on a 2200D for beach detecting on dry or eroded sand banks? I have a few spots in mind which a pulse induction machine would be handy on spots my mates CTX can't reach. Of course I'd have to waterproof the machine but as a general machine for depth would it handle alright on these areas? Anyone here use the machine for beaches regularly? It'll be my first pulse machine, I'm a long-time user of the Equinox 600 and 800. 
      Cost isn't an issue, I'm just getting bored and limited in parks. 
      I found one at a decent price with a few DD coils. Would I just be wasting my time and money? The spot I have in mind is a long strip of beach where I've found a bit of silver and military relics in the past, and I know of someone who's found a half sov and someone else who's found a cartwheel penny there .
      I've looked in to a Whites TDI machine but seems like no one here sells them 😞
       
      Cheers!
