As for me, I like the bells and whistles of the Deus and now, really taking the time to learn it, is making my detecting trips much more enjoyable and yes, successful.
A part of me regrets getting rid of the NOX 800 without giving it its just due. I did NOT make the difference there, I just neglected it and tossed it aside like some unwanted and misunderstood piece of kit. Someday, maybe I'll revisit it and give it the time I need to get the most out of it and enjoy it. Maybe.

Dan'o,

Many of us have had detectors pass thru our possession and onto somebody else, for a variety of reasons. I make effort to qualify a detector to what I think my needs will be before I make a purchase. Still, there have been times a purchase didn't meet my expectations. And sometimes what we thought we needed wasn't quite right and we have to adjust our preparations. And our interests change over time. And there are other reasons. Let those reasons be your own.

As for now, make the best use of what you have. The Deus is a great detector. Be an expert with it and it will treat you well. Somewhere down the road, if you still feel like you want to have a go with another 800, do it. Minelab appears to be doing well as a company. They'll make more.

It's YOU that makes the difference.

Whats the value of experience?

UtahRich 69 August 20, 2020 04:33PM

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

Monte 78 August 20, 2020 06:03PM
