The 1280-X Aquanaut is available with either an 8 inch diameter search coil or a 10.5 inch diameter "Spider" coil (as shown on the reverse).
Searchers working on rocky, uneven terrain, in thick underbrush, in salt water or high density trash areas generally prefer the quieter operation of the 8 inch coil and its ability to zero in on good targets closer to junk. Pinpointing is also easier with the 8 inch coil and it's easier to get into confined areas.
The 10.5 inch coil will go slightly deeper-5% to 20% in air, less in soil depending on target size and ground mineralization. The most noticeable improvement will be on targets larger than coin-size in non-mineralized soil. Equally important, its wider scan will cover more area with each sweep.
