Does anyone know if the Mars sniper coil (6x10) marked F5 is compatible with the G2+?

If you ask Mars, they will tell you it's fully compatible but that their coils marked G2 are tweaked for optimal performance with the Fisher/Tek 19 kHz machines (as per their email to me). They won't give any details as to what optimal performance actually means. I have a Tiger coil with F5 marked on it and it works very well with my F19. I've never tried one marked G2 and a dealer told me there was no difference. :confused:

If I bought another Mars coil for my F19 I'd make sure that the coil is marked G2 just to be sure.

Active detectors and accessories: Fisher F19 LTD on Mars universal shaft, F19 on original shaft, Nokta Fors CoRe, Whites MX7, Makro and Nokta pointers. Killer B's and Jolly Rogers headphones and assorted coils.
Previous detectors in order of acquisition: Bounty Hunter Discovery, Fisher F44, Fisher F5, Omega 8000 V6, Minelab X-Terra 705
