It might still be the coil. Bad coils will give a spark when the plug is out and no spark when higher compressions is obtained. You might check the air gap between the coil and the flywheel, it should be no more than 0.010". Personally I would suggest buying a quality line trimmer.
Hope this helps, with out seeing the machine it is hard to get the whole picture.
