I'm sure I could give it some thought and come up with more than just one.

But just keeping it on topic with the Vanquish series, I wish they would have used a name or width and length dimensions rather than a term that leaves us wondering.

For example, my Fisher F5 has a 7" concentric coil mounted but it came with a 10" concentric coil. The average hobbyist is going to think those might both be the dimensions of a round coil, but the 7" concentric is a round coil, while the 10" Concentric is an elliptical that they call 10" but that's only close to the front to rear length of the coil.

Personally I kind of like the use of some descriptive words, such as Viper, Ripper, Raider, Sharp, Snake, Sharpshooter and so on because we all learn what those are dimensionally. I know I have a bad habit, or some might think so, of using both the name of the coil as well as the dimensional specs of the coil, but I do that because some consumers and readers don't know what it is when I say Ripper coil.

As for having Gregg use Hemi, that might almost work, because at least it relates to a brand. I think back 49 years to November of 1971 when my brother Ed and I we're working for a private investigative firm, which called for a lot of tailing and stakeout time, and we were each driving our own personal cars, each a Dodge. One was a 440 with a V8.

Monte: I agree with you in that manufacturers in some instances have put "strange" names/figures on their coils--------but-----
