Only issue I have with the SEF is that the open design which makes it lighter also causes it to get hung up on corn stalks or any other plants/things sticking up out of the ground. Sealed designs like the Commander series or Detech closed coil alternatives allow you to brush right over that stuff. You can rig up a flat coil cover but then you are adding weight... Detech sealed coils are slightly lighter, cost less, and are waterproof vs. their Commander counterparts. But the Commander's have slightly better performance, including slightly better compatibility with the built-in GPX iron rejection feature. Even though the Commander coils are not waterproof per se, they will work fine in dew and even in light rain showers, they are just not supposed to be submerged or used in downpours. HTH
I have never had an issue with commander coils, even in heavy rains.

the only way water can/might get into a coil is thru the holes in the ears. And thats an easy spot to make water tight. I wish they would fill them when they are made. I see a lot of guys trying to water proof where the cable enters the coil, but that's already waterproof by way of design. Total waste of time messing with it. I squeeze RTV into the holes om my commander coils, insert a bolt and wait for the sealer to set up. This not only waterproofs the ear holes, it stiffens them too. When guys overtighten the bolt it warps the ears and can let water in.
