just as many good targets with the 11" as with the 9". Several Deus users told me to NOT get the 11" when I was first looking to get a Deus but a great deal on an 11" package came along so I bought it. Couldn't imagine why they were opposed to the 11". It is definitely my favorite coil. I did get a 9" (and a 13") but use it mostly for water hunting since it pushes through the water and weeds a little easier.
