excellent point of view steve! am waiting on fisher. don't know to a certainty,
however believe that 'fisher" is ''still" in the hunt!  wishful thinking? perhaps!
never sell dave johnson and crew short though! ''tons" of experience there! 

(h.h.!)

j.t.

Thanks for the great breakdown. I have to admit I've fallen behind on much in the detector world aside from Minelab gold machines, it's nice to get a concise summary of what's going on and what's to come in the wider world.

Hello and Happy New Year!

 

I m pretty sure XP will release something soon,those guys aren't sleeping.i will put my bet for April........The fact that we are so spoiled for choice make me wonder where will i put my money next if i do as i realised that the Nox on the beach is very very good,The Tarsacci another very good one.

For my type of research on the Thames i ve got all of the best/fast and selective machine.

I ll get the 12" coil for the MDT when it comes out and should use my G5c more,Covid restriction out of the way of course!

$teve,as usual some interesting input on the state of the most popular detecting machines around at the moment,the main 2 that you have mentioned that i use are of course the Deus and the Equinox as these machines basically cover all my everyday use.The 2 other that i am dusting off and plan on using more are the Nexus MP and the TDI Pro both the latter detectors are for real deep artefact hunters and best suited for pasture sites,both are deep especially with the larger coils that can be used on them but not used them much this year due to the Covid lockdown.

Thanks again for your thoughts on what is currently happening in the detector market but still my favourite machine and the one i grab as i am heading out is the Deus with the HF elliptical coil.

Great insight on all the brands and glad to see a point of view from someone that knows their business.

Good hunting and good luck in this 2021 year.

I agree with every word you say and glad to see someone will say it.

XP Have made no secret that a new machine is imminent, they have also said the DEUS is not being discontinued or retired.

If I were to put my money on anything it would be a waterproof multifrequency.

Problem is when you've been implying it is imminent for multiple years, you kind of lose credibility.  They've been saying that about the Deus companion app for years also.  It's always just few months away.  A few months later, its still a few months away.  That's how XP has done things since they announced version 4 SW is imminent 1.5 years before it was actually delivered.   I've been seeing photos of their 2-box coil since 2015.

Bottom line, I'll believe the XP rumors when I actually see some hardware and not just whispers or even glossy marketing brochures.

I agree but aren't all manufacturer the same????? they need the hype :)

The hoard hunter is a delicate one as when you hunt hoards it aint anymore a hobby.......

      THIS !! All the people boo hooing will be in line to get one at that price point. It will also force the hand of ML with their price structure. ML raised their price on the 800 and NM absolutely crushed that price point. The Legend doesn't have to be better, just equal to turn the fortunes in their favor. ML and their arrogant "obsolete" charge is foolish. Obsolete by definition means no longer produced or used. Many detectorist and their single frequency machines are still out there making great finds and having fun. Furthermore, single frequency detectors are still being made and sold. NM build quality is far and away superior to the Nox detectors.

      I thought I was pretty damn good, but this technology has me beat.

      Might be time to invest?

      Metal detectors often seem to have a 'Depth Gauge'.  How is it calculated? Is it the strength (or inverse of it) of the amplitude of the return signal?  So, for instance, everything else being equal, the 'deep' target would mean either a stronger target at greater depth or a weaker shallow target?

      While we're all abuzz with the announcement and advertised feature and performance characteristics of the XP Deus II, I'm wondering about tests that distinguish between detectors' target separation abilities.  'Word on the street' is that in trashy iron sites, the original Deus is still the best available.  Presumably those reports are based upon in-field testing, which of course is the real proof.  But the downside is, (AFAIK) these are qualitative observations, not quantitative.  Subjectivity involved?  Unfortunately, yes.
      We do have Monte's Nail Board Test for a special case -- iron nails near a single coin, all in the same plane and typically all on the surface of the ground.  Add depth combined with some mineralization (burying the MNB) and you've included another real world dimension.  But in the field, multiple nearby targets are seldom in the same plane.
      So you hopefully see the purpose of this post.  Has anyone seen/tried other methods to better simulate actual in-field conditions to differentiate between competing detectors to best be able to handle trashy sites?

      I mostly hunt in lakes and the bottoms are mostly all sand. A test on a sandy beach with the Equinox 800 and Xp Orx, both hit hard on a 14k 3.7 gram gold ring buried at 14". For mild ground I don't see a need for multi frequency. I do like the multiple frequencies on the Orx.
      Is there an advantage to multi frequency in mild ground?
