The Tornado 10" & Sun Ray S-5 Coils Size Comparison
Posted by: Critterhunter
Date: July 15, 2012 01:24PM
The Sun Ray is actually 5.5" in size. A really small coil, and I like that for max separation. Many like odd shaped trash coils where the length is longer in order to attempt to increase depth, but when I'm working heavy trash with a small coil I want max separation and that means the smallest round coil I can find. I still think this coil may get 9" or so on a silver dime in my soil. Very impressive considering the deepest a non-Minelab machine could ever get in my soil was 7.5" on a dime and that was using an 8 to 10" size coils. While I haven't dug a dime at 9" with the S-5 yet, I have dug one about 7" that hit so hard and easy that I believe it could have easily been another 2 to 3" deep and I should probably still have got it just fine. I've read of others reporting 9" or so on dimes with it so I'm fairly confident it will do that for that reason too in my soil, or at least come very close to it.

Early versions of the S-5 were white in color but I haven't heard if the performance was any different than the current version which Sun Ray continues to make to this day.

Here's a thread I did on S-5 and 10" Tornado separation tests against each other. It includes pictures of masked targets and notes in detail how both coils did at two 90 degree angles to each target masked differently. Very long, but detailed and does indeed show the merits of using a small coil for unmasking even better than the already excellent ability of the 10" Tornado...
