Best small coil for AT Pro?
« on: January 26, 2014, 18:00 »
I'm in the early stages of looking into moving to an AT Pro sometime later in the year and would like to get a second coil for trashy areas, snot lots, fencelines etc.  I had a 4.5" for the Euro Ace which worked very nicely.

It seems there's two potential coils for the job, the 4.5 "sniper" type, and the 5X8" DD.

The more I swat up on these, the less obvious the choice seems to be. Both have their fans it seems.  :-\

Has anyone had experience with these and maybe be able to provide some guidance for a confused soul?  :)

I use the 5x8" works for me in trashy areas.

5x8" Garrett works well

Depends on the detecting your doing but personally haven't found any need for the sniper coil yet. Not to say I would never need it but i think the 5x8 would get more use.

Thanks for the input guys!

I was leaning towards the 8x5 because it seemed to be a bit more versatile and I do like a DD.

Now, for the saving bit!  ;)

I have only had my AT PRO International for a week and my yard has a lot of trash ,I mean a lot . I was blessed with the deal of the century on the AT and it came with a lot of extras .  Included was a tiny little coil ,The Super Sniper that measures just over 100 mm . I have not tried it out yet but to date have 36 coins from my yard .  I will try the Super Sniper out tomorrow and see if it really can see through the trash .  Stay tuned .                Gaz

Tried the sniper today without any finds.  Put the 5 x 8 on and had two coins rather quick.  I have a large 11 x 9  DD but it seems to make the pro heavy going and its constantly hitting targets .  I will have to lean toward the  8 x  5.     The all rounder i think.   Gaz
