Deus Loves Round Targets
Quote this message in a reply
Took my new Deus (3rd one now!) out for a 2 hr hunt at a well hunted site today.

Was a nice 55/60 degree day here in Michigan (not bad for early March) considering it's typically in the 30s/40s this time of yr Big Grin

Ran the Deus fast program with a couple tweaks = 4 tones, 3.5 disc, 18kHz

Nothing too special today

couple marbles
a flat button
cog to a watch
cap gun piece
tiny washer
part of a suspender clip
cool ornate top to a compact case of sorts (not makeup) = more like a trinket box/compact
etc.

That case is a work of art, MRH! And the marbles and suspender clip are great digs, IMO Yes

It's obvious by now that the Deus has won you over, and after seeing many of the machines you use, would I be wrong in assuming that most of your hunting spots are early/mid 1800's homes sites, with a few farm fields sprinkled in? The reason I assume that is, those types of spots are normally littered with iron/trash, and the name of the game isn't so much depth, as it is speed/separation. Now, question...

What if your Deus broke, and you were stuck using a Racer, would you consider it a handicap, or would it do most of what the Deus can do?

Cool finds! I love those marbles they are fun to find.

Why the third Deus? Did they brake or did you sell them off?

Yes Joe -- I've come back around to the Deus (as well as) I just bought my 3rd CTX again too!

I've tested so many machines in the last couple yrs that there's no doubt in my mind personally that these 2 just can't be beat as a "combo".

And you're partially correct in that I hunt specifically 1800s sites but it's a more of a mix of sites in farm country.

As to the Racer = if I was stuck using one VS a Deus I'd have to say that it's a decent machine but in my opinion it is what it is and that's a "mid level" machine that does not measure up to a Deus in terms of versatility or functionality. If you have a million sites littered with a billion tiny bits of iron/nails then it's a great machine with the small oor 5" coil installed and will pull stuff most other machines can't see but outside of that = there's many other machines on the market I can think of that are much more useful for many more sites/conditions. Yes

Excellent finds! The Deus is a great machine. It can really sniff out the good targets, and your post just proved that!
