Just noticed you have a sunray x-8... how do you like it? I haven't seen many people use it. I have been wanting to check out the SEF Butterfly.. but no one I know has one...

Hey GH...honestly I use that coil more than any other. It just seems more versatile than the other two. The X-5 is great, but I only use it in REALLY trashy areas. The X-8 I feel like I can use pretty much anywhere even in very trashy areas without feeling like I have to move at a snails pace to cover some area like with the X-5. I'd say I have probably used the X-8 as much as 60% of the time since I bought it. Of course the 11" coil has its place, but if I had to choose between the X-5 and X-8, it would be the 8 hands down.

Just my humble opinion. Take it for what its worth...

thanks I like the idea of downsizing the coil but getting the depth.. especially when gridding

You sound like you have some EXP. Talking about different coil sizes and types and stuff, cool. Me i just swing and dig, it seems to work well enough where im at but 98 out of 100 signals are good there. I was just thinking that where you are swinging play's a huge part vrs. what and how you are swinging. Please don't take that wrong , i have very very little EXP. , just food for thought especially for me, just was thinking out loud kind of.
