It's 99° at 2:15 PM here, Monday, but we have a 17 MPH wind and i still have some shade left to hide in. Going to go out and see if I can't find ANY piece of silver in this old yard. Striking out so faqr, but I have about an hour of shade left so I'll go use it, along with my ORX to keep the weigh limited on this hot summer day.

I was using a custom program that needs more tuning, but really hits on all targets. The x-y screen is very helpful for dig/no dig decisions.

Based on Deus Fast; disc -3 (3 tone), sens 90, freq 14.4,reactivity 2, audio response 4, no notch.

I'm not a Deus fan because I prefer 'simplicity' but I do know what it might do if the settings are not messing any performance up. I like the ORX because it is simple and easier to use, yet with Deus-like performance in most applications. Like you, I enjoy the 5X9½ DD HF coil for most of my ORX hunting, and I appreciate you posing your settings.

I have two 'Custom' programs I use , save in '5 User Coin' and '6 User Coin' slots, and I always start out in '5' which is at 14.4 kHz, Sensitivity at '98', Discrimination of '7', Reactivity of '2' and Iron Volume 'On.' The 'ORX' is 3-Tone only in the Coin programs and that works out just fine for me. The only think I need to figure out is how to increase the Mi-6 Pinpointer's Sensitivity. I do like how they work and they do let you get away with a faster sweep speed than most other detectors. Not that we should, but ....

Glad to hear you're enjoying that XP and having some success afield. I'm interested in the settings you'll end up settling on with the Deus.
