I know this is a dead horse on many fronts and is highly variable and dependent upon soil conditions, metal condition, etc. But I will once again try to gain some insight. So here goes!
1) What ID range have you found gold rings to fall into on the ORX?(50-59 for instance)
2) Is there a particular ID range that nothing but junk appears to huddle into? (0-45 for instance)
I know it is difficult and a dodgy question of sorts but I've never found anything good below the 60's, as it mostly appears to be can slaw, iron, or foil fragments. Another zone of junk seems to be in the 70's.

i HAVE been using the Hot program in full tones, with the HF coil and 28khz , I have been amazed at how good it is at telling iron from non iron , and tells me more about the iron in the ground , like is it round iron flat iron and really good at telling me how big the iron is . I took it to iron hill and its finding 22 slugs, shot shels, brass, right now i would have to say its my favorite, i do check it with the deep , program. the deep seems like the Equnox to me prone to false on cut nails. but so far the hot has been hot and good and hot
I have been forcing my self to use my Deus more here lately. I am finding that I like the Deus very much. For the most part I am using Gold Maxx and deus fast. I have a custom deep program I use as well.
What I am getting at is i am not really using as many of the programs and settings. I fiddle between 2 for the most part and some times 3. And that is Deus fast and either gold Maxx or the deep Custom one I made.
I have been thinking of selling either my Deus remote set up and keeping the ORX or selling the ORX remote set up.
I like the ORX for the large easy to see screen and iron probability bar. Plus I only fiddle with the coin programs anyway.
I actually favor the ORX to tell you the truth.
They are slightly different animals. And each has their own strong points. But target and depth between the 2 are equal.
Who else has the same delima??
Ok so according to the manual of he deus with the white HF coil the target ID normalization is fixed on and supposedly it will not give you the option of turning it off.
So yesterday in my test bed on my zinc penny I noticed in 14 khz the ID was 72 to 76.
When I bumped over to another frequency of 31 khz and went back over the zinc penny the ID jumped about 10 segments to 86-88.
I thought the id Norm was supposed to be fixed on the HF coils????
Am I doing something wrong here?
I went to a friend's house and detected his front yard with my ORX. House was from the 50's. Found some old clad and a few wheat cents and some other odd and end stuff. After a while I did not get any more coin signals. There is the odd and end junk left but no more coins with the ORX.
I took my Deus over there the other day just to cherry pick for coins. Did not find one. Not even a zinc penny.
I think that is pretty impressive.
Just wanted to share with you guys.
Ultra lightweight FROM DEPAR!
DPR6000 is a high-tech metal detector capable of exceptional performance. The DPR 600 has been designed and manufactured in France to give you the ultimate Gold Prospecting experience.
The DPR 600 is innovative in terms of metal detector design as it offers an unique system based on different elements communicating via a digital radio link. In this new design the coil, remote control have each been made independent through the integration of very compact, high-capacity lithium batteries.
An ultra-miniature electronic circuit, incorporated in the search coil, digitises and analyses the signals. Data is then sent to the remote control in real time via a digital radio link. With this method, the signal is processed at source and not conveyed via a wire link, which greatly improves data quality.
Incorporating components from leading-edge technologies such as scientific instrumentation has enabled us to produce a powerful, rapid, lightweight, compact and fully controllable digital detector.
Whether you are an experienced user or a beginner, The DPR 600 lets you decide whether or not to modify any of its settings. Powerful pre-configured factory programs enable all users to get started immediately, while expert detectorists can choose more advanced parameters via the intuitive interface.
Seems like it would be good, I've never heard of it or anything about the detector, made in France
