XP Orx With X35 Coil Bundle

Recommended Posts

Since early August, XP have started selling the ORX with the 9" and 11" X35 coils as a stock option for less than $700. The package deal comes with the wired back headphones. Some online dealers that have these in stock are selling this bundle for substantially less than the lowest advertised price or adding in incentives if you ask. Personally, I never enjoyed using the ORX wireless back phones. I have a really big head and those headphones hurt enough to distract me after about 45 minutes no matter what I did. If you are looking at an ORX and the great all purpose frequencies provided on the X35 coils now would be a good time to investigate these deals.

Sales must be down on the ORX for them to offer a big package like that..

  It’s lots of things I wish the ORX had but I got it for lack of weight and on that alone I’ll live with the rest.

Hi Chuck,

I don't know about sales. I think the whole XP line of detectors have been way overpriced at least here in the USA and the soon to be released Vanquish and the Equinox series have certainly cut into the multi frequency/all terrain VLF market.

 Like many have said, for certain detecting scenarios like relics in iron trash and relics in general, the Deus and Orx are fantastic. In heavy aluminum trashy parks it is not a lot of fun however, where numerical target ID is important since that is the weakest aspect of the Deus and Orx. Its pretty good for gold prospecting and like you said, the lightweight sure gives my wrist a welcome change from my heavier detectors. It sure is easy to backpack it too. I'm still really struggling with my dislike for the audio on the ORX and Deus. I just don't like to listen to really scratchy audio for hours on end. In areas where there aren't many trash targets I am okay with it. After listening to dozens to hundreds of buzzy, scratchy tones, a good target does sound fantastic.

 I’d have to say you covered it all .

True True True  

After the Vanquish and Simplex it’s the market with more at less price we may see others bite the dust .

I just traded for an ORX. I do have the EQ600 but the ORX is tough not to like due to the weight and ease of use.

Also had a nice find the first time out with it.

 I too find the ORX easy to use but I do love the weightlessness . Glad to see it paid off for you already.

 The Best To You on your ORX In the coming days.

      Want to know if it will fit inside my camo duffle backpack and don’t want to have to fit the coil on  at the site of use. Could somebody measure this?
      thanks

      I’m a Relic hunting for coins and thinking about getting the HF Elliptical coil to hunt with. I have the ORX with the the HF 9” round coil but thinking about trying the elliptical one .
      Like to hear from anyone who may have used it for coin hunting..
       Thanks ahead of time.

      I’ve been a long time lover of small coils hunting a new location for the first time. 
       I’m wondering why none are being made . It could be I’m the first that ask for one . I don’t look to find it at my door anytime soon.
       All the relic hunters and one coin hunter in the bunch I can see why I’m sucking hind teat.

      I decided to hit a hammered colonial site where the last several times there with the Nox 800 no significant non-ferrous items were found. Every couple trips I might find a cuff button. So was running the ORX with 9” round hf coin in coin fast 28khz, but switching to coin deep at 54 kHz., reactivity 3, sensitivity 94. Found 1792-1812 period American  naval button ( undetermined variety as yet). With 13 5-pointed stars and Philadelphia back mark.Also found cuff link, outside of large 2-pc ball button. 
      Thesewere all found within 45 minutes, and other targets were going to be found for sure. 
      I’m totally impressed with the machine. So much so that last night I  ordered a 9” XP X35 coil, because folks? The XP ORX is a keeper with a long future. Deepest target ( squarenail ) at 1 1/2. Punpointer lengths. (15”-16”)
