Interesting news, but not all good.

The 5X8 is not that much smaller proportionately than the 6X11 Viper coil, however it might fit in, around and between some trash and brush to be helpful.

A larger size 8½X11 is probably not going to be that great a coil for most lobbyists. Plus it will be a little added weight out on the front end which can take a well-balanced detector and make it a bit more fatiguing

The bad news, is that we don't have good news about a small coil. We need something in 4½" to no more than 6" diameter, and preferably round. It would be nice to see a small Concentric coil, but even if it was a DD coil that would be fine as long as it performed well.
