lighter coil

Post by rockyroad » Fri May 04, 2018 1:42 pm

hi all I've bought my son a garrett 300i as an upgrade from his
but after only a short session even i thought the stock coil was a tad on the heavy side
are there other aftermarket coils that would be lighter and more manageable for him?
hes 11yo
cheers

If the problem is that in use, the detector is 'nose heavy' adjusting the stem length to a shorter setting may help. It does make quite a difference. ::g Regards ss47

Edit: Using a 'bungy' attachment is also a possible solution.
A disservice is no service at all.
