I sure agree Joel. But I can't dig down 9 in in my town very easily, my arms are not strong enough so I'm probably sticking to the top 5 in. I don't mind at all using a shovel in rough terrain but I'm not going to be going 9 in town with the lecshe hand tool too hard for my arms. But that's why I say for sure the Deus and the 3030 outrank anything they just do. The proof is in the pudding I've seen the finds for my local town and I know who's finding the best and I know it's those two Brands I mentioned. For now I am satisfied with what I have will that last forever who knows for now I'm doing all right.
If those two models "outrank anything" then that's implying they much match each other in performance, and I can assure you they do not. The XP Deus and Minelab CTX 3030 provide some decent in-the-field performance, but those two models have very different circuitry design and therefore behave quite differently.

I have good friends who rely on one or the other models almost exclusively, and some who have one or both models in their arsenal, sometimes with competitor's models, and they are savvy enough to know the difference and pick the model that fits their needs and site challenges better than the others. Thus, they don't 'out-perform' all other. Even with comparable-size search coils, most of the Minelab FBS users know their model choice is not going to be able to 'out-perform' or 'out-rank' the competition if they move into a very dense iron debris field of nails, rusty tin and other unwanted junk.

The Deus and CTX 3030 are both very capable detectors for some types of hunting, and each can provide different performance behavior than the other based upon the site challenges, the desired target types and anticipated recovery depths. Both are good detectors, but not the same in performance, and definitely not able to out-do all of the competition.
