The Ultimate is lightweight being only marginally heavier than the stock coil.
It is a good coil for covering a little more ground but I have not noticed any other advantage with it. I haven't noticed any greater depth achieved, however it finds small targets like cut halves and quarters and pinpoints as accurately as the stock coil does, once you get used to it.
I used a 15" coiltec on an Xterra 705 and couldn't get on with it. There seemed to be no benefit to the extra size and weight. That is only my opinion, and as you've got one try it out.
I am with Wigeon on the Ultimate coil. It is very manageable on the E-trac, but as he says the main benefit is covering extra ground. You might like to consider going smaller rather than larger. the Nel Sharpshooter coil is a very useful addition on restricted sites.
Good luck with the E-trac.
