Thanks for the video. The highest frequency on the X35 and middle frequency on the 9" HF coil are pretty much about the same, give or take 2kHz avg.

With that being said, how often do you really use the 54kHz on the HF coil?
Just to spot check, or do entire hunts with that frequency?

I get the impression your default frequency you hunt with on the HF coil is the 26 - 31 kHz range.

Agreed.....that's why I got the Deus in the first place. Have had some great finds in holes infested with iron... Im a fan of bigger coils because I hunt a lot of Colonial farms.....some coppers are at 12-13 inches.....always looking for an advantage.

I want to keep it, maybe instead of getting another 9 inch, i might go with the X35 11 inch coil, cant see getting all 3 coils, they are to much . Unless a sponsor gives me a multable coil discount, also looking for Equinox 15 and 6
