Hi Fisho/antony and welcome to the forum.

I use 14 inch mono and i think that is very good coil.
I dont think lot of members use 11dd as on most new detectors mono are the coil of choice.
Well they have their place if you want to use them in trash area so you an discriminate.

Good luck.

HI--- I'm Jack and new here--- I retired from the US Government and moved to Thailand in July. I've been planning a prospecting trip to WA for 5 years and will be hitting Perth April 15th (hopefully scoring a 90-day visa extension). I'm looking for a prospecting partner in WA. I've got a GPX5000 and plan on buying a Toyota Landcruiser camper (after figuring out what you folks call rego laws) and have a few areas in mind: Pilbarra and the salt lakes. I want to take a Udo & Bill field seminar to acclimate myself to the endemic iron issues and then hit the fields hard.
I'm looking for someone to hook up with on these trips--- I retired fairly early (56) and don't have or want another job except digging holes in Australia. If you'd like to discuss the possibility of hooking up in Perth around May 1st next year just let me know--- I have plenty of questions about WA... many of them will appear stupid!
