Flexible RF coils gained large interest in recent years. One possibility to achieve flexibility is using transmission line resonator-type coils made from coaxial cable. These self-resonant structures can be constructed without lumped elements along the loop enhancing flexibility. No consensus has been reached yet whether these coils should be driven at their respective self-resonance. To investigate this question, we have performed a simulation study investigating 11 different setups at 3 frequencies each
