I also have the Nel Big, but for the 250. Been using it for nearly 3 ish months now. Its pig heavy, but I would say I'm getting used to it. Like you say, pinpointing can be a little tricky, and even now I still get it wrong. But my finds tally has vastly improved, and I am noticeably digging very deep holes often with a goodie at the bottom. I have gone back over ground I had already detected on and found even more. Not sure it will be any good for stubble later in the season (will probably revert back to standard coil), but if people are thinking on getting one, you won't regret it
Also I struggle to get it in the back of my car as well...
Are you still using the Nel big coil?
Read your review on the airtests, but how did it perform overall?
Thinking of getting one for my T2.
Chefphones, Detech 13" Coil, Whites TRX Pinpointer.
As for bin lid understatement more like a ten gallon sombrero mate ..
Cheers for the information spot on !!!

just after a few bits of info now that you have had your Nel coil for awhile . I to have the AT PRO which I enjoy using , but I keep thinking am I missing anything . I go mostly on the beach and would like to know how you rate the NEL on the beach also what size coil you think will best be suited for a not very trashy beach . I enjoy reading your posts and it,s obvious you know your stuff . So any input would be greatly received .
Good hunting .
