I figured the round 8½" would show a little depth advantage over the 5X9½ but I didn't think it would be nearly 4".

I do believe either one could make a nice coil pick for most people to keep mounted on the Simplex + full time for typical day-to-day hunting. I would think the 8½" round Double-D will likely be the coil many people would favor. Not sure but I might even like it over the elliptical 5X9½ DD for open parks and yards and such, preferring the 5X9½ for working in and around brushier or more littered places.

Now I look forward to any reports you'll share about your field time with the new coils. Remember to let us know which mode and settings you use when you get out for each coil.
