No!
6" (really 5.5")
8" and
10"
is all I've found for my two Coinstrikes.

Also, the coils for the ID Edge can be wired (changed) at the connector to work on the C$, not sure just what that is but I believe its only a one wire change and its a ground wire???
If that's something that interest you I'm sure a question here on the forum will get you some help. Or connect forum member "vw242"

Mark, I have the Edge and the C$. The Edge coils work on the C$ without any modification. But the C$ coils as is don't work on the Edge. If I disconnect the ground wire on the C$ coils then they work on the Edge. When using the Edge coils on the C$ I hear a buzz when I touch the metal plug on the cable, but I still get the same depth with either. Love both detectors. Frequently, after I dig up a target I dig deeper to exactly 8" and drop a clad dime in and cover it up. I can detect it in All Metal mode but at that depth the meter is jumpy going from minus 36 to plus 42. Unfortionately some of the deep rusty nails give similar numbers, gotta dig them too. I search in All Metal but will switch to Disc when I need to. Took me several weeks to get familiar with the C$, I think it's an awesome detector, so is the Edge.

I sent "vw242" a pm about the ID Edge coils being used on the C$ and below is what I got back. The reason I contacted him is because I just bought a modified ID Edge coil from him that he had up for sell "For The CoinStrike"
Anyway, my second C$ and that coil is out on loan to my brother and as of yet I've not got any feed back about that coil.
See PM reply below,

Mark,
The only difference is the C$ ground cable ( outter stranded wire ) is connected aka
grounded to the connector housing or "ring". On the ID Edge coils, it is open and not connected.

So, from what I can get so far to use the C$ coil on an ID Edge the grounding should be disconnected, then to use the Edge coil on the C$ the ground should be hooked up.
