Joel, a coil 'naming' issue.

June 08, 2022 12:15AM avatar
White's had their Blue Max 600 that they called 6". I call it 6½" because I measured it. Then they made the same coil in a black housing but named it 5.3 Black Max and many people wouldn't buy it because they thought that it was too small and just a little over 5".

Then they changed the name, of the very same coil, to 5.3 Bullseye, and also made the same size for the MXT Pro, V3i and others, calling it the 5.3 Eclipse. All of those coils are closest to a measured 6½".

Tesoro then followed up with a cutsie move to call their 6" coils a 5.75

But any ruler will show you they are almost exactly 6" on the nose.
