Yes Andy I would like to see detailed depth tests on a dime and nickel in bad ground between the new coil and the Stock 11" and 17x13 Coil.
Audio and visual ID differences as well as depth meter accuracy.

Thanks,
Bryan

Andy, post a picture of it in your bathtub, I'd like to see if it sinks or floats.

Ditto here, that would be a great test to see. I own the stock coil & the 17" so this test will tell me if I am justified in adding this coil in my arsenal.
Thank You

not for me , only plus for this coil would be covering ground faster, depth same as stock. price to expensive.

I don't know what actual selling price will be, but its gonna have to drop a good bit to match actual selling price on the 17s.

The coil is not like the smaller one from Coiltek. It is a solid coil like the CTX-11 and CTX-17 and as a result, will not float and does not have the potential to leak as some of the early 5x10 coils did

I see that Gary Drayton has a review of it on his youtube channel.

Andy, thanks for the additional input. I'm not trying to bust your chops here but just because the 9x14 coil isn't a design like the 5x10 (which to me I would call solid) and more like the 11 and 17" (with an open wagon wheel like design) wouldn't be reason enough for it not to float....example would be the Whites Dual Field "neutral buoyancy" coils that tend to float its all about what they fill the coil with.
Drayton's latest video showed me what I needed to see and that was the coil scraping the bottom underwater during use....I can't control my 5x10 that well underwater due to fighting the floating capabilities of that coil.

Thanks again for the responses and info Andy!

He wasn't saying the coil didn't have an open spoke design, he said is was SOLID. That means its a shell, with electronics added and then filled with resin (like the CTX-11 and 17) so that it's solid. The original coiltek was hollow so that it was light weight, but that made it very buoyant.

mrwiburino i'm with you 4x6 would be a great trash hunter .I don't know why they made another big coil there's the stock and 17 but there's no trash sniper which would put this coil in high demand . Still waiting Coiltek come on lets see the little coil or least a 8 inch round which would fill the gape from stock to 6 inch coil . sube

I agree AJ.

IMO, if depth/coverage is the goal, the 17" would be the tool. For me, the 14"x9" wouldn't provide much over the stock 11" round to be worth the $$.

I agree with Sube and mrwiburino, a 4"x6" is one I think would be great. I have a 3"x6" NEL Snake for my F75, and love that size/shape coil for trash sifting. I won't be holding my breath for another small coil though.

I see no need for a 6x4" over the little ML 6" coil, its deadly amongst the highest trash, I have picked Romans Minims 4 or 5" down from fields packed full of Roman Hob Nails and other trash, deadly little coil.

I agree. There is no "need" of a 4"x6", anymore than there was a "need" for either of the Coiltek offerings. Generally speaking, IMO, the three Minelab coils (6", 11" & 17") cover most of the "needs" for most situations.

Anything beyond those, is more of a "desire" to fit the preferences of some users. Hence my comment that, "I won't be holding my breath for another small coil though". The practicality of producing one, would be limited by what is already available.
