Short Report on the new Deus -

June 01, 2019 05:54PM avatar
I'm almost to the point of having to recharge my rig. Have been out 3 different times to a handful of sites, mostly parks that I've hunted before.

Getting used to the sounds and working my way around the controller. Have dabbled with both the Deep and the Fast programs and made a couple 'custom' programs based on recommendations from Kickindirt. So far, so good. I've been digging A LOT of trash items by design, getting to know what they sound like and how the Deus responds. Making a lot of little changes to the settings as well to see how results are impacted. Started off using the Horseshoe screen and currently using the X/Y screen and I like it; so far.

Picked up my first 'older' coin at a park, a '44 wheatie at 6". Easy target. Picked up a couple more wheaties today in a parking strip tear out. Was told I was the 4th detectorist to hunt it they were aware of. Grass and roots removed, about 3" worth. LOTS of pull tabs and square tabs left by my predecessors, and zincolns. Picked up the 2 wheaties, a nickel sized machine token (numbered with center hole), a very nice costume jewelry ring and some clad. Guess the previous hunters cherry picked the high conductors they could find. Glad they missed the token.

With the grass removed, the need of pinpointing was minimal and it was quicker to sweep a handful of dirt across the coil just like Gary does on the XP Skills School videos. Doing lots of re-reading now that I have the Deus in hand and am beginning to get just a little experience under the belt.

Basically, I'm getting used to how XP does things and learning the ropes. A long ways to go before I arrive at any sort of proficiency, but we're on the road and headed that way. thumbs up

Will drop back when I have more. Till then . . .

PS Should have mentioned I have the Deus w/controller, 9" x35 coil, WS-4 headphones and MI6 pinpointer.
