This coil has been an excellent addition to the range of Coiltek products that we offer. This is a unique design as it is fully water proof and one of only a few fully water proof coils available for the Minelab GPX range. The coil is potted with epoxy resin which holds all the windings secure and provide its water proof ability. The coil comes with a fitted skid-plate which has been designed so it can be easily removed to clean out trapped dirt or dust or to remove completely and swing without the skid. The coils robustness will ensure that if run without a skid plate it will endure the knocks and bumps during normal swing action. (solid skid plate also available) The strain relief on the coil could be the only area of water intake so always remember to have this hand tight plus half a turn before you are going to submerse the coil. Also remember that the coil is water proof only, so ensure that your cable plug and control box are kept free of moisture at all times.

DD PRO operation hints & tips:
The DD PRO Platypus has been very well received for the hunters who prospect in streams and creeks. Due to the elliptical shape it has been an excellent coil for pinpointing targets. Swinging with an overlapping sweep pattern is crucial to make sure the ground is covered well. When you have a target the slowly swing up to it from 2 different angles and when you start to hear the target it usually is 1 inch in from the nose of the coil.

DD coils quite often produce the signal just where the two windings overlap. The DD coil can handle the heavier mineralised areas quite easily so would be a good choice if you hunt in these regions. If you hunt in trashy areas then the DD will be the only coil to discriminate.
