XP Deus

So what's happening with this big Deus coil, that's 2 I've now seen for sale and they've only been out a month???

I only know of one but I'll look out for the second!

I'm still waiting for mine.

Personally, I think they have sold too quick. The Deus is due for a software update (free) at the end of
the month and I believe part of this update is for the larger coil.

The update is for non motion detecting and also a constant soil mineralisation display amongst things.

The one person who sold his coil said it was deeper but that he could not distinguish iron as easy as he
could with the standard coil, and in his opinion it wasn't worth the extra money.

I may feel the same. But until I've given it a try and done some testing with it, I can't really comment.

It should offer something different as otherwise it isn't worth the money. Maybe it was so different to the
stock coil that they didn't like it. I don't know.

Adam & Lisa seem to have done OK with theirs, but I think you could give them a hazel twig and a bent coat hanger and they'd still come home with the goodies.
At least it's finding small silver OK, it's probably the same as the SEF on the Minelab. People bang on about using the 12x15 and how it will still find the small silver but over the course of a year I wonder how much more you are finding than you would with the Pro or a 10x12.

The standard coil on the Deus is excellent. Usually the much larger coils aren't as sensitive to hammereds

but I'll be happy to get another couple of inches on pasture.

There's nothing like an old fool with money...........so I'll try for myself.  Wink

It all started about 8 years ago when I sold my XLT which I'd had 7 years.

I've got a machine I'm happy with now so I won't be changing for some time.......... Roll Eyes

If you want to set up an old fools club and want members, let me know! I'll be a committee member.  Grin

That's not the detector for me.............I got a female that nags at home without taking one out 
when I go detecting.  Cry

Thanks, but I'll stick with my Deus......I just get a lovely sound when HE's found something !  Grin

Chased up Nigel's yesterday - told they should be back in stock next week - started to panic as the only detector I have at the moment is pulse induction and the rally is drawing nearer so cutting it a bit fine Cry   A very kind friend immediately offered to lend me his spare Quattro so all's well again  Cool

Well, the above link is another dealer. Will Regton match the price or do you want the never never?

After seeing the  upgraded 0.2 version advert in this months searcher .It looks like XP have conned a lot of Deus owners into becoming beta testers on the MK 1 
I will stick with the minelab
