2016 coil choices, need advice

I am planning a coil upgrade on my Excal II.
I was first set on the SEF 12 x 15 butterfly after seeing so many people with them on the treasure beaches here after the recent hurricane.
(I met one well known detectorist who had just scooped up 23 1/2 and 1 reale coins from the sand dune, using that coil).

Then I read about the NEL 15 attack coil.
I spoke with Kellyco and they said that the NEL Attack was unstable with some of the Excaliburs, as if it was a coin toss whether it would work or not.
They have had about 5 or more returns on them, so they wont recommend them.

They recommended the 15 Tornado from NEL instead, but I cannot find a single review on that coil with the Excalibur, so I am reluctant to be a guinea pig.
Is the lack of reviews and info because it is so new ?

The other coil they recommended is the WOT.
But as I understand from reviews, the WOT has been surpassed in performance by other coils in same size range.
This detector will be used mainly in wet/dry sand, seldom in water more than a foot deep.
The treasure beaches where I intend to use it are not heavy on trash.
My intent is to gain some depth and more coverage per hour.
I will be upgrading the phones from the GG UW to the GG Amphibians, and adding a remote pinpoint switch.
But mainly I am in a hurry to select a coil, since that is the only "unknown".

Suggestions appreciated.



Excalibur early Sword model, Gary Storm built serial EX112, (needs new case)
Excalibur 1000/GreyGhosts
Excalibur II -1000/Grey Ghosts
