The Minelab 8" Coinsearch Coil & 8" (Actually 7 & 1/4" ) Minelab Tornado Coil In Same Pic For Size Comparison
Posted by: Critterhunter
Date: July 27, 2012 11:48AM
This photo courtesy of Deepdiger doing some hard searching for pics of the elusive 11" Coinsearch coil. It wasn't the 11", but still a great find of two coils in the same pic to show the size difference of the 8" Minelab Tornado that is really only 7 & 1/4" compared to the true 8" size of the Minelab Coinsearch. The old heavy Minelab BBS coil is also 7 & 1/4" like the newer Tornado currently made to this day. It shows why many prefer the 8" Tornado for hunting heavy trash, as it still gets outstanding depth (heard of a few coins around a foot in depth with it, like the Coinsearch) yet has excellent separation.

I'm one who prefers the S-5 ( 5.5" ) coil because I want the smallest round coil I can find for a trash coil and I'm still shocked by it's excellent depth, but I think the 5" Exclerator Detech currently makes might be smaller, and might even be smaller than 5". I dug up a blurb (see prior blurb in this sticky) where somebody said the 5" Excelerator is 4 & 3/4" in size, but there is some small doubt (again, see prior info) that that might have been a version replaced by the current one they call the 5" Excelerator. I doubt that, but it's worth mentioning. I think the old Hot Head Ferret coil might also have been smaller than 5". So if smallest possible is your primary goal for heavy trash, you might want to check into the currently made Excelerator or try to dig up the rare Hot Head Ferret which might have been even smaller still yet. Still, the S-5 sure looks tiny to me, and many love this coil on even the FBS machines when working the worst of the worst in terms of heavy trash. I know some FBS guys prefer it over the 8x6 (sadly not made yet or maybe never for the Sovereign) SEF coil when trash is beyond belief.

Even this pic for size comparison doesn't do the Tornado or BBS coils justice. My friend has the BBS version on his Excal and it looks like a hockey puck. The picture below makes the Tornado (same size) look bigger to me then it does in person.
