What do you think is the advantage over the Deus ?  Ie.: Goes deeper ?  Un-masks around/through iron better ?  Or ... ?

More like your digging targets that you may normally not have dug because the machine is different. One the reasons I use different detectors over old grounds rather than beat the path with the same stick. There are exceptions to that when it may come to depth when one machine may not hit a particular target as deep.

Well it is deeper, that's an advantage, the 12"coil is going to hit deeper with a louder signal.  but many of the targets where not that deep so it must be getting thru the bits of iron better. and the black sand,  one thing is its blow sand but lots of iron in the sand and the black sand mode really make a very clear difference, then add to that the Salinity balance , its just able to cut thru the crap better

Ok for mineralized soil but what about the Tarsacci in mild soil with iron trash ? Does it perform better than the Deus there ? thx ..

I’ve used the deus for the last 8 years. The tarsacci for the last 2 months. I didn’t think another machine could match the target separation that the deus has, but the tarsacci is awesome in the iron! I am hitting old sites and cleaning up finds we missed.  The tarsacci loves the deep brass.

I have used the XP goldmaxx  from 2007 to 2013 , then the Deus from 2013 to now . A total of 14 years with XP ....  I agree that the Deus has the best target separation in iron trash  from all the machines I have used since 1998. 

In Europe separation is the key feature because we very often detect on nail beds here , this is why I am curious about this tarsacci...  🙂

I think you will be pleasantly surprised with the results on the tarsacci.  I wanted the tarsacci for the difficult red soil dirt in VA.  I sometimes dig in.  I never thought I would want to use it in my area where the soil is soft and sandy and easy to dig.

      Second day on the small flat but this time with the DEUS..   It pulled a few good targets using Fast with the XY screen.  The Mexican Real and the pistol tool were maybe an inch apart and the DEUS heard them both.  The more I use the Deus the more I like it.  Cool two piece button in 3 pieces was just under the grass.  I am having trouble reading the date on the coin so maybe somebody can see better than me?

      Spent 4 days in Nevada last week and hit 4 different places that consisted of a Military Fort and 3 ghost towns all on private property. Found a nice assortment of stuff. Coins are pretty crusty but should clean up OK. The holed looking coin turn out to be a ration token that has been counter stamped a bunch of time. It reads U.S, Subsistence Department on the one side and had One ration on the other.

      I'm camping in NC this week, a new campground that is on a remote island in the Currituck area. It's really an old campground that got a facelift from a big company. Did a ton of research (history, maps, aerials) before coming, they implied on the phone that metal detecting was ok here.
      Talked to some folks after scouting the place, it's over 400 acres of woods, marsh and shoreline that really doesn't have a beach except for about 50 feet at the end of a bulkhead. Got permission to pretty much do what I want from the management, really nice people. They pointed me to where an old farmhouse once stood:
      I brought my less intimidating shovel and promised to show them what I found. This place has been hunted by some YouTube personalities, I'm going to find their video if I can. The ground is similar to my landing back home and cuts like butter.
      Got pretty much skunked at the farmhouse in the 2 hours I was there, had to put on 100% Deet to keep the deer flies, mosquitoes, black flies and midges off me. The not so smelly stuff wasn't working.
      My trash was what I expected for the most part, can slaw, some brass, steel and other aluminum bits. Strange was the lack of much iron here. Everything was coming up in the 10-36 range! I was in all metal. Maybe I was just ignoring the iron.
      Got an "O" from either a Ford or Oldsmobile.
      Managed to dig 3 Zincolns, all 70s from when they said the house was pulled down. Odd too that they were all ID'ing from 22-26!
      Going to hunt the "beach" and may go in the water along the bulkhead. I'll probably go back to the farmhouse area if it gets a bit cooler.

      I have been progressively working a Victorian era house site over the last week or so with the Deus and 9" HF coil, previously it had been detected with my Explorer SE Pro several years back, though obviously not thoroughly enough.  The oldest coin so far off the site was from 1862, though more desirable are the dog registration tags which are considered quite rare and fetch a decent price (not that I would ever sell them).  So far only one silver, an 1884 threepence.
      The soil here is also very sandy and drains well, leaving many of the finds in very good condition - some of the dog tags look like they were dropped yesterday and you can achieve some pretty good depths even with the 9" coil fitted.  Hope you enjoy the pics.
