Default portable 2m yagi build

I'm going to build one of these and wonder if someone has does this. I found two sites with similar specs for 2m but a guy on ebay was selling one he builds that says will work on 2m and 70cm, handy for satellite work. He also has several wraps of coax around the pvc, I'm guessing to better match impedance.

My basic questions are without a SWR what are the chances for success?
Is the coil necessary?

I think a standard hose clamp would work, no need for stainless.
