Hi Folks,
i recently bought a Whites Treasure Pro with the DD coil. I'm not sure i like the coil as i'm used to concentric coils on my Ace 250. With our low mineralization in TwinCities, i think i might get more depth with same size (10 inch) concentric coil. Any ideas would be appreciated. I'm not finding any silver so far but rarely found any with the 250 either. I've been hunting for 10 years now but don't claim to be an expert.

We have a lot of iron in the soil here and the older parks have a lot of nails and other iron trash items and foil and pull tabs, all if which will decrease the depth of either a concentric or DD coil. 

I don't think a concentric coil will get you any deeper here because it sees too many targets per sweep.  I think the DD is the best choice for both depth and target separation, but getting deep in an older park here is tough.

I've been hunting a little local park, about 1/4 acre, tiny. But it has been around as a park since at least 1887. Has tons of trash targets, foil, cans, iron, tabs so I got a 4" coil for my Ace 250. Target separation is much better, enough so that I can find coins laying near trash. But I am digging a lot of the mid range trash signals just to get rid of them so that I can come back with a larger coil some day.

Thanks for your help. I think i'm running out of places to hunt as far as parks are concerned. But maybe with my new machine i can revisit some parks and perhaps pull some silver thats been let behind.
