Title: ? Coil upgrade for Garrett at pro.
Post by: TJ on February 16, 2017, 08:17:24 PM
I am thinking of upgrading the standard coil on my garrett at pro .
Torn between MARS Goliath or NEL Giant.
Massive price difference but does anyone have any experience in using these coils ?

I meant NEL Big coil. 15 x 17 and Mars 15 x 15
Mars is only 425g with the NEL at 925g
The mars is 60 cheaper .

Don't be misled by the weight they advertise, I was. They don't include the weight of the coil and fittings, only the head.
I can confirm the NEL is a heavy addition. Couldnt fault it's capabilities though I found it made my shoulder ache and cut down detecting time.
