Hi Monte,
The XP GoldMaxx Power I bought has a stem like the Deus/ORX units, I have zero time in with it as yet but I was intrigued by the reports I read from a number of people that I respect such as Keith Southern who spoke very favorably about it, I am immersed in trying to learn the Equinox’ 800 and after another month I will move on to some of the other units I picked up in my big buying binge in 2018-19.
The Rutus Alter 71 was another unit that I bought second hand and I did do some hunting with it. It has some very well designed features such as mixed mode, a histogram display sort of like the XLT “spectrograph “ great build quality, fast recovery, all metal modes, and selectable frequencies from 4-18 KHz. I hope to bring some of its qualities to light here, and when I get to a WTHO I will bring it so some of the gang can check it out. I am of the opinion that it is a real sleeper that most folks in the Americas have little to no knowledge of.
The Deep Tech Vista is an original Gold model not the newer gain type, it is 28 kHz and it had no problems with the stack of large silver coins, I also watched a video where it detected a small gold target in dry beach sand that the Fisher Gold Bug 2 failed to pick up, it may have an application for ghost town hunting with its 5” coil, we will see.
I was supposed to help with the Vista X prototype evaluation but it sat idle well I was lame last year so I missed the boat on thatsad smiley.
When I got to opening it up the plastic battery holder is not functional due to a missing cross connector so I am waiting on a couple of 8 AA holders to finally fire it up.
I have put in exactly one hunt with the XP Deus and really like what I saw from my first cursory exam. Alain had his thinking cap on when he came up with that design, a great example of “out of the box” concept and execution. No wonder so many people have taken to it and the ORXsmiling bouncing smiley
The Tesoro I got was one of the Bandido 2 microMAX, your old favorite, your faith in it led me to finally get one thumbs up.
I will post the test results for all to read warts & all.
Cheers
Drew.
