This coil has been an excellent addition to the range of products we offer. This is a unique design as it is fully water proof and one of only a few fully water proof coils we produce. 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) Remember that only the coil is water proof, so ensure that your cable plug and control box are kept free of moisture at all times.

DD PRO operation hints & tips
The Platypus has been very well received for the hunters who detect on the beach or around 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 then 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.
The Platypus excels in areas of high trash and targets stand out with its excellent sensitivity, great pinpointing ability and good target separation.
