Deus 2 Continues To Impress

The two main reasons are that I didn’t want to be distracted by really small micro can slaw and smaller foil both of which tend to have target IDs in the upper 20s to 40.  I am willing to miss a 0.1 gram earring back or a tiny gold chain.

Hey Jeff

In your hot soil, does running a Disc of 40 help tame any falses from hot soil or old iron?  
Where do you run your iron volume???

thanks>

Sole purpose for me running disc up to 40 was to categorize below 40 audio responses as iron responses or less important responses.

I don't concern myself with responses from iron or steel objects that are responding as mixed ferrous/non-ferrous objects since that is exactly what they are and these advanced SMF detectors are giving truthful and accurate responses to them. If I don't want to hear that "falsing" I will just turn up bottle cap reject and maybe the Silencer.

Running disc above -6.4 will definitely help with magnetite induced ground responses when a proper ground balance isn't enough to take care of them due to soil moisture levels or some other factor. Common target IDs for magnetite/ground responses in my area are -6.4 to -5.5, 0, and very rarely+25. Those aren't "falsing". They are actual target responses that are ground noise related.

Running disc to +40 again was just a quick and easy way from me to put less emphasis on more than likely non-gold ring IDs from 25 to 40. It's taking a chance if say I was never going to detect that area again. That is not the case. I will continue to hunt that park with different detectors and with different settings......seven rings in the last 3 months along with multiple silver coins, wheat pennies, war nickels and lots of clad.

Iron volume level depends on what headphones I’m using and wind/traffic noise. Usually with good headphones and very little ambient noise, 1 or 2.

The 2 if you dive or go wading is ok but this is doable with a Deus 1 ! there's so much on the 2 which youl never use you could easy spend trip after trip changing from setting to setting there's to much useless baggage on the 2 just seemingly overcomplicated ,has my finds rate gone up against my detecting colleague who still uses Deus 1 since I've used the  2 absolutely not ,,perhaps Ive been extremely unlucky ,,been detecting since the late 70,s gone all through MF prior to the XP mono Deus 1 which was a revelation when it came out ,Deu2 was and is a monetary venture on behalf of XP because there was nowhere else to go IMO ,what's next 🤔

 

For me the D2 is a toolbox where you pick up what you like/need . Personally there are 2 things that decided me to change from my D1 to the D2 :  the SQUARE audio that I prefer to the historical PWM D1 audio  , and the additional depth due to the multifrequency .   2 ( very ) good reasons to change for me ...   

However I still have my D1 as a backup but I will probably sell it .

On the other hand I agree the D1 is still an excellent detector especially in plowed fields. But in woods , forests or parks the D2 goes deeper I have no doubt on this ...

Hi Gary Xp.

Do you know where is ground tracking settings in WS6?

Can't find it.

Official WS6 manual shows ground tracking option, page 22.

https://www.xpmetaldetectors.com/uploads/files/document/gb-ws6-deusii-userguide.pdf

 

I’m not Gary but I ground balance with the WS6 all the time. There may be other easier ways but I just pick the program I want, then press the Menu button (lower right with red highlight) and work my way through the settings=discrim, sensitivity, freq. shift, iron vol.,reactivity, audio response, and then you come to GRAB…..hold the menu button while pumping the coil over clean ground until the numbers stabilize. Procedure is on page 21.

That's not the point.

Manual shows ground tracking in WS6.

All i want to know is: Where is it.

My bad.

Ground Tracking is no where to be found on my WS6 running 0.71

I forgot about the shortcut to Ground Grab by holding the options button.

Otherwise, looks like another feature/setting that has been promised but is not available on WS6 like it is on the main remote.
