I think itís all to do with the recovery speed. The Safari isnít the fastest gun in the West but it sure is accurate when you hit a target.
All Minelabs benefit from a slow swing and as you said, if you concentrate on the swing position, you wonít miss much.
Just to rub it in a bit I have to say the NOX is the Bees knees at recovery speed and you can adjust it. It was one of the main selling points. Even so they recommend slow and low.

              Don't forget that as you swing the coil left and right, at the same time as you stride, you may be leaving wedge shaped gaps at the end of each sweep. I worked a paddock for a good few hours with the Safari and pulled out loads of coins; both  decimal and pre-decimal. A week or so later I worked the same section of paddock using a Quest Q40 and continued to pull out plenty of coins.

              I put the continued recovery of coins from the paddock down to a more efficient sweep of  the coil, rather than the Q40 being any better than the Safari; which it isn't! I will often swing the Safari to a count of four seconds but do tend to have the shaft extended to almost maximum. Yes, progress can be quite slow but you will not miss much!
