The 17 x 11” Elliptical DD PRO coil has and is proving to be a fantastic all round performing coil. Released to provide a well balanced coil which provides the prospector with good maneuverability in tight areas it continues to be a preferred coil of use for a lot of operators.
With its elliptical shape it provides good coverage over the ground and the ability to search in and around the terrain and is also complemented in having excellent depth and sensitivity capabilities. When nugget hunting it can pick up the sub gram pieces and ensure that pinpointing is made easy with the tip of the coil.
It has a center mount shaft mounting position with an 8 mm nylon nut and bolt for extra strength. Also, being of the solid coil design it can help when grasses are long to push down close to the ground and not be hindered by sticks and the like stopping the swing. This coil is a great choice for excellent overall performance and balance and continues to find gold in many of the world’s gold prospecting regions.
DD PRO operation hints & tips
With its excellent detecting capabilities you will find that this coil will ensure you have a great chance in the field as it will search deep as well as seeing the smaller sub gram targets quite easily. By keeping the coil close to the ground (no more that 1 inch above) you will find that the 0.1 gram nuggets can be heard at a couple of inches which is proving that the coil has good sensitivity. When pinpointing, slowly work up to the target and listen for the first response heard. Usually this is within the first inch in from the tip of the coil. Then repeat the process at 90 degrees from the first direction. Once you have a cross hair view of the location it becomes a lot easier to accurately dig for the target. The DD PRO allows the operator to have quiet operation in the heavier mineralised areas ensuring faint target responses are heard. Needing only to overlap the coil by one third, this coil can cover the ground quickly due to its elliptical shape making this a great choice for the more open areas in the detecting field. This is a good medium-sized patch hunting coil.
