Yes, I meant to say Deus 2.

Also, there's nothing wrong with a SF detector. However there's 2 places I would absolutely want an SMF.

1) Hunting old parks/schools in grass where deep old coins lurk. The SMFs can do a better job at IDing, save some digging and reduce attention to yourself.

2) The beach, where to get any decent depth in mineralized salt water soaked ground, you need a detector to be able to discriminate out the salt and mineralization. Dual frequency machines work well here too.

BTW, another reason to have a SMF machine is to get the 4KHz SF. Maybe the X-terra can do that, I don't know. But that frequency is the best for deep high conductors. In fact George Payne, inventor of the motion machine, said 3.5KHz was optimum for a dime.

But in my arguments I'm referring to just a specific environment, that being a littered ghost town site ( iron & rusted tin) when your detector sounds like a machine gun trying to get thru that stuff. I really don't see an advantage with SMF. In fact, one might argue that the higher freq(s) might make the job harder, especially in rusted tin.

Just jumping from a 15KHz CoRe to a 19KHz Relic, the higher freq seems to want to enhance the rusted tin, making it sound even more "coin" like and not giving clues that the 14KHz Racer or 15Khz CoRe do. Granted I still dig a lot of the stuff. Nothing is perfect. But this might be a time to use a 10KHz -15KHz single freq.
Anyhow just a thought. If it was only iron ( nails etc) then the 19KHz Relic would prob do a little bit better than the CoRe in the unmasking dept. But throw in the rusted tin and it's a whole new game.
