Testing them all side by side with the same coil give very similar results. What would define “not working as well”?
Well, using one coil type, either the earlier Coinmaster Classic coil or the newer Blue Max series on the different models in actual in-the-field use you can find them to:

• Possibly not work at all on some detectors.

• Maybe work with any audible 'Beep' but on a Classic ID or IDX pro the target ID can be incorrect.

• Possibly not work in some areas due to the Ground balance being noticeable off from functional.

The old 8” coil and the blue max 8” coil on the classic II SL gave the exact same results.
'Exact same results' as in they both produced an audible 'Beep.' Okay, but that Classic II doesn't have the front-end work done to let it be fully functional with the Blue Max series search coils. If the Classic II had Tone ID or a visual TID display, you might have heard or seen different results between the two coils. Also, as indicated above, in some ground environments it might not work well or have a drastically incorrect Ground balance for that coil.

I did discover right away that the old coil did not work whatsoever on my classic ID or my classic III SL. Not even a single beep.
And there you have the answer to the question you first asked. They simply might not work.
