The Excelerator 5" Coil...
Posted by: Critterhunter
Date: July 16, 2012 09:19AM
I dug up a quote on this coil from somebody on it's actual size..."I have the Detech 5" Excelerator S Coil. The actual diameter of the coil is 4 3/4 inches."

That's pretty small then because the S-5 is 5.5" and to me looks like a hockey puck, so for even more extremely severe trash people might want to opt for the Excelerator, although the S-5 is one tiny little coil and I don't see how it could get much better separation wise. I did see one review where a guy said the S-5 got more depth for him, was more stable, and that he just liked the S-5 over all better. But, I've never really read any bad remarks about the Excelerator so take that with a grain of salt. The FBS guys for sure seem to love them.

Below is a picture I dug up from Matthias of the Excelerator. I'm assuming it's the same coil the above quote talks about size wise because Matthias called it a 5" coil. However, note the name of the coil in the picture while the quote above called is an "S" coil. The mysterey of potential versions/sizes of the Detech Excelerator trash coil(s) continues. As said, I *think* there might be two Excelerators out there...A 5 and a 6". If I had to guess I *think* they replaced the 5" with a 6" but it might have been the reverse of that, if they ever did in fact make a coil in both sizes? Still not sure about that, but I do believe whichever one was the last (if there were two) is still being made in a Sovereign version and Kellyco still carries it far as I know. I guess you'd have to call and ask somebody who knows like JW. But with the above "S" coil name and the pic of Matthias's below, now I'm wondering if there are even a few versions of a 5" coil as well too? Either way, the coil below looks like it's probably a 4 & 3/4" coil like the size described above in the quote.

I think I'll shoot off a PM to JW and see if he can clear this up for me to post- were there two size coils, and were there a few versions of each or something...As well as what the current version Detech makes for the Sovereign is.

The pic below I think says "Multiple Harmonic Wideband DD Searchcoil".
