Does the elliptical perform as well as an OOR ( out of round) coil ??

The Nokta / Makro 'OOR' coil (an 'Out-Of-Round' design that is 4.7X5.3) is essentially a 5" DD coil, and there will be some performance differences compared with the 5X9½ DD HF coil from XP. At times a sweep from one direction might have them close to comparable (comparing the 4.7 and 5" widths), but a 90° shift in position can favor the 'OOR' DD'5.3 front-to-rear length to the 9½" elliptical length.

Naturally there are all the other variable as with any detector or coil comparison, such the the operating speed, operating frequency, Discrimination accept / reject point, settings used, and certainly the circuitry design in general, makes a significant difference. I can add to this thread that I owned a couple of ORX devices and both a 9" X35 coil and the 5X9½ HF DD coil. For ME and MY hunting site selection and wants & needs, the 5X9½ HF coil was a terrific all-purpose performing search coil. With the ORX and the right frequency choice and other few settings, it provided me with exceptional in-the-field performance in dense Iron Nail environments.

9.5 x 5 Elliptical HF Coil is best one for (ORX). N/T

I agree 100%, a great general-purpose search coil. N/T
