The Raider coil, along with Garrett's 1.28 upgrade combine to make the Apex a great metal detector.
The coil cover has a tight fit and I feel it has already protected the coil from a few obstacles.
This is one of the best coils I’ve had the opportunity to use. It pinpoints beneath the ground so well there is no question where the target is and it also gives me the depth that I like. In saying that the coil cover is an important part of detecting also while covering the coil so it cannot be damaged. It is easy to install and very durable. I would recommend this one to anyone.
