    White's XLT and Jimmy Sierra Hot Shot Coil?

    Hi! I have a XLT and I always have used my stock coil. I would like a coil that would give better depth. I have looked a little bit into the Jimmy Sierra hot shot coils. This seems to be the only coil I can find for the XLT to give me better depth since I can't use a Super 12 coil on my XLT. What are the pros/cons of the Hot Shot coil? Is their a better option?

    Thanks!

    After 15 years with the XLT and all its trusty coils, I can honestly say, great coil in my opinion, and you will get the added depth as advertised. Also, the HotShot has the same characteristics as the stock, which makes an easy transition. Only problem .... you'll have to go back to all your previous sites

    Oh! I almost forgot....Does the signals read the same? For example, It I get a VDI of 82 it is usually a clad dime, will the signal be the same with that coil?

    The Hot Shot is a very good coil. It is the only big coil that I use. The VDI will be very close but the depth will read a little shallower but that not real important. Tony

    I got one for my DFX, I'm glad I did can get an extra 2-3 inches no sweat over the stock coil. Weight is not noticable, 2 ounces I think. Love it for Relic hunting. I agree with what Tony said on VDI and depth. You have to remember that using a large coil is for places where targets are far between. Junky areas are better covered with a smaller coil. HH Bob
