val,  its the soil that's heavily minerized in parts here ( n wales ) red soil means bad news for detectorists not bothered about  foil etc we all get that of course

anyway i have ordered a nel sharpshooter plus an ultimate coil today,  will do some testing the  ultimate against the sef 15"  i have 2 x explorers se   so can do some comparisons very easily

I knew that David.  I've got some fields that were used for iron making in the past.  Great big patches of red showed up in the soil when the new owner  ploughed for the first time.  It's a nightmare but get your settings right and the NEL wont let you down.  On the Safari it picked it's way through the junk and came up with some interesting finds.
Only mentioned foil etc because I thought you'd mentioned the beach.

I have a n ultimate and a nell sharpshooter I leove them both but I prefer the Ultimate coil it is lighter and easier to swing, be prepared for the challenges of pinpointing. I still struggle at times.

                                I eventually chose the Detech 13" ultimate coil to augment the stock coil that came with the Safari and also added a Nel Snake coil to my armoury of detecting gear. I have already tried the Snake on some verry trashy beach areas and was more than pleased with it's performance. Sadly, the wife is keeping the Ultimate coil under wraps till Christmas day.  Sad

That's OK - if we're to believe AOL's weather forecast we're going to be up to our necks in snow for weeks.

Not that I believe a word that AOL spouts, of course  Roll Eyes

                             I must confess that I have never detected in snowing conditions. I once detected on a Welsh hillside with Chris (Dungbeetle) and we lost site of each other due to thick mist n fog and last year I kicked off detecting at the crack of dawn to make the best of the day, only to find that frost was forming on the coil as I swung it. I also did the beach one day last year and finished up like a sand blasted drowned rat. I think that Chris and lads were also out that same day mud-wrestling!
