Dan'o, believe it or not, this is about what I figured you'd answer.

That's a tough question, hmmm...
Forgive me but I'm going to reason this out in this post.

The Anfibio Multi is easy to use with just enough adjustments to make it usable on just about any site - the 9.5X5 and the 5" coils would be my choice although the 7" concentric could take the place of the 9.5 for a year.

The Simplex with the stock and the 9.5X5" coil would be a safe choice but it doesn't have multi frequency capabilities.

The Deus with the 9.5X5 and the 9" X35 would make me very confident and comfortable for a year.

The Vista X would be great with the stock and the 5" coil. It would force me to really learn the tones and tonal differences and gives up nothing in depth, separation and ease of use. Again, no multi frequency capabilities but with its 16khz it would be and is very versatile.

Tic tok, tic tok, tic tok, tic tok - and the winner is;

It has to be the Deus for me!
With all the frequencies available from 4 - 74khz, the ability to fine tune (or really screw it up) for each site's conditions combined with its light weight and the ability to raise and lower not only the pitch and or tones but also where they break or don't and the ability to to use full tones if the mood strikes. For me its the most versatile with the most oportunity to learn and grow by learning the detector settings and the tones and offers the most comfortable ergonomics of all of those listed above. Deus, Yep, the Deus!

Just so you know, I almost chose the Vista X.

Although you currently have a very good 'team' of detectors, it does get difficult with the question I posted to only select ONE brand new detector and an extra coil if, for whatever reason, you suddenly were down to zero and had to pick one to use for a year. Your list included what you have, and the Nokta / Makro Anfibio Multi and Simplex + are both very serious contenders that feature visual TID, and the DeepTech Vista 'X' is also an impressive unit in the non-display category.

But the XP Deus, big brother to the ORX which I favor of the two, is definitely a very good selection for the very reasons you noted. And the 5X9½ DD HF coil is also a perfect addition to your choice. And you've been putting in the time to learn what you have and that's great.thumbs up

Let's just hope you and I and all the others are never in a position to have to make a One Only decision for a year of hunting.

Whats the value of experience?

UtahRich 64 August 20, 2020 04:33PM

I concur with regard to experience. However, it brings this thought to mind.
