Maybe RR can chirp in on this one as he is a mxt guru. Thinking about going to a large coil to increase coverage area while detecting Michigan upper peninsula. Gonna be stone beaches with for the most part low junk levels. I do have a whites 12" that might suffice ....Huh?

G'day Mate,

Yeah the 12" factory Concentric would be your best bet unless you have arms like poppye then the 15" MXT Max Coil might have the edge, I have a couple of the 14x10s and they are lighter than the 10"DD but DD's on the MXT don't work as well on the beach, The 15" Coil would Float like crazy in the water, So I think your 12" Coil would be the best bet, They also do a 9.5" version of the 12" Coil as well as the standard 9.5/950, But your 12" spider coil would be the one I'd use.

Hope this helps, good luck.

J

I have the 12". It gives your wrist a workout . Usually use the 10DD. Your right the 15 would be too much. Will have a go with the 12" gonna use it in the beach gravel w the mxt and in the water run the cz21....

If you have a 950/9.5 coil you could use that but the MXT does not like DD coils for the beach, On the beach you can run the Gain higher with a concentric and you won't dig as much junk either.

Ok, cool. Freshwater by the way. Not sure of the ground up there. Don't remember having and ground issues hunting  there before.
