  1. It seems like a consensus is developing that if you had to have a Deus with only one coil, that the 9” round HF coil is the one to have. Yet it appears that is the only coil besides the 13” not available as a stock coil in a new Deus purchase. The only ones I see for sale like that are on eBay from Russian sources and this U.K. website
  2. Published on Apr 26, 2018. The wait is finally over! We are very excited and proud to share with everyone the XP Deus Team USA Metal Detecting Show #1. XP Deus Team USA is a metal detecting show that features team members from across the U.S. who use the XP Deus, one of the top metal detectors on the market.
  3. This will be where I will share info. Head to head test. This pic here, look closely towards end of little screwdriver looking magnet. At the end of it lays a #9 shot pellet out of the cartridge in pic. Equinox hits this small item well, even going out to 1-1.25" coil height (air test). Using settings park 2 Mulit freq, speed setting 6, 0 iron bias. I did notice though reducing speed setting seemed to make performance worse (distance wise). What about Deus using 11" LF coil? Deus could hear, have to be real close coil though, tonal signature not as evident nonferrous exist vs Equinox. Equinox is clear winner here with this test. Forgot to say.Sensitivty setting used on Equinox 23. Sensitivity setting used with Deus 93.
  4. hello I wanted to know if it is possible to improve this result with the Equinox :
  5. Looking at the classified section of another forum and on the first page there are 8 Deus for sale, for trade or marked as sold. Must be quite a few comparisons being made out there.
  6. Hi! Help determine whether it is worth buying this metal detector? It is difficult to determine because it is not cheap. Previously, I wanted to buy an XP Deus 22 or another new cool metal detector Makro Multi Kruzer. Found on the Internet comparison Minelab Equinox 800 vs Makro Multi Kruzer. Now I do not know which of the three detectors to choose :) Does someone already have experience of using them?
  7. Some random notes, and if you don't know what I am talking about as regards some detail of this machine or that I apologize. Well, I finally updated my XP Deus with 11" coil to the version 4 update. Then I hauled it and the Nokta Impact with 11" and Teknetics G2 with 11" out for several hours of cross checking coin type targets. The G2 is a Gold Bug Pro variant running at 19 kHz and I put it up against the Deus at 18 kHz and Impact at 20 kHz. I acquired the G2 new recently to use specifically as a benchmark unit because I am very familiar with it and because in my opinion it does 19 kHz as well as it can be done. I spent hours swapping machines as the hunt machine, then cross checking the undug targets with the other two. Lots of settings tried, with the main goal to try and find some deep fringe type target or target in trash where any machine can get a clear and definable edge. Well good luck with that. All I mainly did was impress myself again with what a little powerhouse the Gold Bug Pro/G2 is for the price. It is fairly mineralized ground but not the worst, 5 bars out of 7 on the G2 Fe3O4 meter, ground balance about 86. The only real "aha" moment was in learning the Impact really likes to upscale shallow small foil when in 5 kHz mode, but shoves the id back down to where it should be at 14 kHz or 20 kHz. All the machines like to upscale deeper aluminum in this ground. All three seemed to get tricked in much the same way on certain targets, like a deep pull tab reading like a dime. For gold hunting purposes I do not mind machines upscaling low conductive targets, and in fact the Impact 5khz mode may have a benefit in nugget detecting because it does want to push light foil (and therefore small gold) higher. But for coin detecting upscaling aluminum is annoying. Pretty much par for the course however for mid to higher single frequency machines. I found running the Impact in VLX1 was nice as I could flip over just one click to the Gen(D) mixed mode program for a dramatically different read and better target definition. Target id numbers in my ground are slightly higher in the "expanded ferrous" modes like VLX1 and VLX2 compared to DI3 and DI4. The Deus V4 Gold Field program does seem to pack some extra punch now, be fun to get it out nugget hunting once the elliptical coil hits the streets. The new Deep mode really seems great while the new Hot mode is, shall I say it, interesting. First time I have used the X-Y screens also. The G2 is what it is, almost no controls but it gets the job done with what it has, and good solid id. Deus and Impact in the other hand have countless options and programs to try, but by and large there is no magic bullet. Three great machines, I can hunt with any of them. It will take a lot more hours to sort it all out. I find when running machines that are all hitting the VLF Wall that it is the "other things" that get my notice. The Impact is obviously the heavier of the three (4 lbs 4.7 oz / 1946 grams), although very well balanced, so I give the feel on my arm award to the G2 (3 lbs 1.5 oz / 1404 grams) and the Deus (2 lbs 4.0 oz / 1020 grams with 11" coil and control box). The G2 and Deus are neck and neck in the comfort department FOR ME* but the G2 feels ever so slightly better to me, I am guessing because the coil is lighter on the G2. The G2 slays both the Impact and Deus for speaker volume if run without headphones, but on the other hand it has no volume control so would be too loud for some situations. Been awhile since I ran a Gold Bug Pro / G2 unit and caught myself when switching from disc mode to all metal when cross checking at one point and forgetting that the "big number" changes from target id in disc mode to ground phase in all metal mode, so I was looking at the ground phase instead of the little speedometer thinking it was target id for a couple goes. That one quirk always had me liking the F75 versus the Bug in all metal. I wish Fisher made a 19 kHz F75! *On arm comfort is a very subjective subject. In particular it has a great deal to do with the size of a persons hands plus length and thickness of their forearm, and their height. You really can't take any one persons word on this subject as it is like buying hiking boots. What fits one person does not fit another. It is not all about detector weight by a long shot. Balance is very important as is the all important hand grip. I am 5' 11" with forearms on the thinner side and smallish hands. For instance, my forearm really bounces around in the large Impact armrest area. The Deus armrest which may be too small for some fits me better. For me personally, the 3.5 lb Teknetics T2 / Fisher F75 is the most comfortable detector I have ever used. It is superbly balanced and something about the hand grip that narrows to the top as it cants forward really makes my hand happy. I can squeeze the armrest shut to fit my arm. So if you find the F75 to be a great fit for you, my comments apply to you. If you hate the T2/F75 setup then what I have to say is less important.
  8. Alright, Thought I would share a few experiences I had today while detecting in the wild. A 3 hour hunt with split time between round and elliptical HF coils. Made a few finds using both coils. I ran the hot program while actually hunting. But used gold field program to check some targets. Glad I did too. Payed off. Here is pic. Notice the bracelet with the name on it. Gent is still a kicking and in his 80s now, bracelet likely lost back in late50s early 60s. I showed it to his sister actually. What about this bracelet portion? I hope folks don't laugh here, what I am going to say, but it is true. I was when I found this, in the same area where cut Spanish bit and half dime came from back in the summer. I'll bet I have swung a Deus detector, others too over this bracelet buried over 300 times. And I heard it likely every time but didn't dig. Why? Probably the same reason why is the same reason I wouldn't have dug again today except for the mighty gold field program. I swept this bracelet (not knowing) with hot program and the signal I got, I would have bet the farm it was relic iron. A very tight super high short blaring signal. I actually remember getting this same tone here previously many times before. Remember this place does infact have old relic iron smaller, medium sized and bigger all over. So in the past I was writing this target off as iron. Today after I hit the target, I toggled over to gold field same freq run as my hot program Reactivty 2.5. When Iistened to this target using gold field, a nice sounding signal smooth on the edges, usually a good giveaway it is infact nonferrous. And sure enough it was. One more target I dug today I will discuss, and again using gold field gave me some additional Intel to actually recover find. The old button in the pic. I located it with round HF coil but the tone signature was crippled big time, with multiple tones being had as I swept. I repeated sweep several times and I would have gave < 15 % chance of nonferrous even existing beneath my coil. But checking target with gold field even even running 1 level lower (slower) Reactivty (level 2.5) I got more to go on vs the disc mode hot program, meaning now my odds went up to >50 % chance of being nonferous based on what I heard. To conclude here. I won't BS folks here. Using the HF coils running 28.8khz they can be sharper in iron vs the LF coils. A person will get used to if they apply themselves. One thing I will mention here and this too is a good weapon (using gold field to check suspect targets) is using disc program sometimes Deus audio will get caught, trying to sound off extremely close to iron range, and a user may be thinking is what I hear nonferrous or is it iron. When you get these, if you hit them with gold field and you hear nothing, or you hear a signal more corrupt vs what you heard using disc mode program, you can almost bet the farm what you are hearing is iron. Now this applies moreso to shallow and middepth targets. Cheers.
  9. Hello. for the moment we dont have the equinox in France . So i cant do the comparison. Anybody have do some comparison beetween the 2 in iron trash ?
  10. This change really bugs me. Seems like now we have a setting that can really screw up performance if it is not set properly and really have not been provided with the tools to properly determine the optimal setting. Its kind of like saying manually set ground balance based on the height of a bargraph without any units shown. Any scientific method at setting this parameter consistently and optimally?
  11. in version 4 and 4.1 there are stock programs that were built using older versions. Why? Why not all built on V4? And when we are building out own programs why would we want to use those older versions? Would not the latest version have the newest technology and thereby being better? I think the Deep program is on the 2.0 version and Hot on 3.2 What is better on these versions that we would want to build on them? Doing so could make a big difference in the type of detecting that we are doing. Let's do it! Thanks
  12. Version 3.0 http://www.xpmetaldetectorsamericas.com/blog/xp-deus-update-version-3-0-announcement/ Version 3.1 http://www.xpmetaldetectorsamericas.com/blog/deus-version-3-1-update-now-available/ Version 3.2 http://www.xpmetaldetectorsamericas.com/blog/xp-deus-metal-detector-software-update-version-3-2-released/ Version 4.0 http://www.xpmetaldetectorsamericas.com/blog/xp-deus-v4-0-software-and-the-high-frequency-coil/ http://www.xpmetaldetectors.com/blog-detection/en/update-deus/deus-product-information-and-news/ Version 4.1 http://www.xpmetaldetectorsamericas.com/xp-deus-version-4-features This link here very helpful. http://www.xpmetaldetectors.com/telechargement/Instruction_manual/ Select 3rd file from the bottom -Summary manual Deus. For some reason XP has merged the version 4.0 and 4.1 changes/improvements on some of their postings. The link with file identified directly above here points out these differences between versions 4.0 and 4.1.
  13. Hey XP, why is the TX power locked at 2 for the HF coils? I am sure that you have a reason for doing so but how about clueing us in on the reason. also, why is it locked at 2 and not let us be able to change it? You could "recommend" setting it at 2 but allow us to change it as needed. The other day i was in heavy iron with the 9" round HF coil and it was just too hot at 2 TX and if I were using a LF coil in this situation i would have dropped the TX to 1 to lower the coil power as I believe that TX 2 was "reflecting" back so strongly that I couldn't get better separation even at reactivity of 3. How about changing that with the next update?
  14. Wow, BeachHunter. For me anyway, that seems rather counter-intuitive. I wouldn't have expected a high-frequency coil or machine to be able to maintain stability AND deliver depth to any substantial degree, in a salty wet-sand environment. You are getting stable operation AND good depth? Steve

    Enjoy http://www.xpmetaldetectorsamericas.com/local/Xpmda/Frontend/assets/docs/DEUS_V4_Manual.pdf ATTN: For those updating and possessing HF coils note bottom of last page in this link. http://www.xpmetaldetectors.com/telechargement/Instruction manual/SUMMARY_MANUAL_DEUS_V4_V4.1_UK.pdf
  16. If like mine, after 5 years of neglect & general ware & tare ,, your remote is suffering from scratches on the screen...... here's a quick tip to restore your remote screen back to new! gently rub over the screen with a " Brasso pad wadding" cleaner,,, it takes about 15-20 minutes, after which your screen will be as new!! hope this helps! regards Dave
  17. In case you read here XP. I have been using the gold field program using both HF coils locating relics in old sites. The program as it is, is very useable but I think an improvement if feasible would make the program even better. The gold nugget hunters using Deus detector I think would welcome this change if it can be done. My recommendation is allow tone pitch change in gold field program much like you currently offer in the Pitch selection for tones option.
  18. For anyone interested. I haven't seen any packages yet for round 9" HF coil though, unless I missed. http://www.xpmetaldetectorsamericas.com/xp-deus
  19. Here is a link talking about the version. Still unofficial, but I think we can see at least some improvements users will get when version is officially released. http://www.findmall.com/read.php?83,2406075
