How Much Are You Willing To Pay For The Orx

The XP Deus that I own, has a notch type ground balance system in Goldfield

You must have a different Deus software version because there is nothing in the V 5.2 Deus manual that says Gold Field uses a solely notch-based ground system or at least nothing different than what is used on the other non-gold field modes other than you can ground grab using the pinpoint button.  You can use the ground notch feature but you can also set ground notch to be off completely as well, just like the other modes.  But see also below.

I might consider looking closely at the ORX if it ground balances differently.

ORX uses only the ground grab method like Gold Field uses on the Deus.  However, on the Deus I have now confirmed that Tracking and Ground Notch will work while in Gold Field mode which is contrary to what I thought and posted a few posts back in this post.  Just wanted to set the record straight as I had promised to do.  Still some lingering questions about tracking and gold field, but it appears they do work together.

Jeff let me know if I got this wrong (re: notch-based ground system on gold field), but that is my take from reading both the users manual and Andy's book.  Thanks.

thanks for trying to clarify the ground balance procedure when using the Goldfield program. 

I don't have an X35 coil yet and am still running version 4 software with my HF coil. Version 5.2 may use a different ground balance type than what I have. I based my statement on one of XPs videos with Gary B. about the Goldfield program on the Deus using the HF coils.

Steve Herschbach has anyone ever told you that you are full of bull !?

 Go write this on your bathroom wall that Chuck Anders said you could be .

 Where did you get 699 from?


I have been told that, yes! 😀

I put in my retailer hat, looked at what the competition offers at each price level for VLF gold nugget detectors and plugged in where I thought the Orx should fit based purely on the feature set. The chart I posted a couple pages back makes it an easy exercise.

      Has anyone had this issue?  Occasionally when charging my elliptical HF coil it will not start the 3 second on/3 seconds off indicator once it is charged.  I changed it for hours yesterday and the most it would do would be that the light would occasionally flicker.  Finally I took it off charge and the controller indicated that the coil was fully charged. The coil seems to function fine other than that.

      Compared the x35 9" coil and the High Frequency Elliptical coil on both XP ORX and the XP Deus using the same settings on 2 different targets next to iron and coal. The first target was a Confederate GA State Seal button and the second was a piece of ornate Colonial gold.

      It finally stopped raining for a couple of days and I was able to get to the farm and try out the new ORX on a couple of old tenant house sites.  These old sites date from around the 1930's or so based on the coin dates.  They also sit on or near older sites so you are never sure what you will find.
      Coin deep was too sparky for me on these sites due to the massive amounts of iron and nails.  I switched back and forth between Coin Fast at 15.2 and 28.8k, standard settings with iron tone "on".  I found the 28.8 frequency to be my favorite.  Once while running in 15.2k I noticed a small aluminum brad on top of the ground (about the size of a match head).  In 15.2 I didn't get even a peep out of it.  I then switched to 28.8 and got a nice loud tone.  The separation in the extreme trash was excellent!
      My better finds for the day was 3 Wheaties, 1 War nickel, 2 Mississippi tax tokens, 1 Louisiana tax token, part of a broken spur, a broken tent tensioner, and one D Buckle.
      Thanks for viewing,
