This detector has a range of coils that are interchangeable. Each coil is designed to suit different search applications.

This is a 6″ Double D coil. It is the most sensitive coil available in the X-Terra range. The pros for this coil is that is waterproof and very good for locating small targets such as earrings, pendants charms and rings. The cons are that due to it’s small size does not cover as much ground as a larger coil.

This is the standard 9″ Concentric search coil provided with the detector. It is a good all-round detector with good depth, great target separation and accurate pinpointing.

This is a 10″x 5″ Elliptical coil. It has great sensitivity good ground coverage and easy to use in rough terrain. useful for finding gold in goldfields.  Would also good be used on the beach.
