Trailertrash Posted December 20, 2019 Share Posted December 20, 2019 Been a mighty fine week in the desert! I picked up a 12x8 Evo for the 4500, as I have been hunting a lot of rock strewn washes. The Commander 11" is my only other coil, and I was missing a lot of ground by not getting it in between rocks, and up under bushes. Very impressed with this coil so far. I have no doubt the Minelab coil would have found these, but I could never have gotten the round coil into the spots they were found. What really blows me away, is how stable the 12x8 runs, compared to the 11. With the 11, I had a lot of EMI, and false chirps from blades of grass. I usually ran the gain at 9-10, with the stabilizer as low as 7, to get a smooth threshold. With the 12x8, I can bump gain up to 12, and stabilizer 10. Sensitive Extra timing was marginal with the 11, and I often couldn't use it. It's very stable with the 12x8. I'm not the most experienced hand with this machine, but the difference was dramatic to me. Found a couple really cool specimine pieces! I'll be flogging this spot hard!
