List Of ID For American Coins On The Orx

Recommended Posts

I just wondering if anyone has seen a list of ID numbers for the ORX on American coins.

 I’ve been looking over the discrimination that the ORX has to offer but it’s nothing to write home about. Oh you can block out from 0 to 99 but wherever stop anytime below that won’t be detected. The trouble you can’t step over a number are too and continue on blocking only what you want to .

 If and when XP has a update this one of many they need to work on to make ORX worth their asking price.

I was going to join the XP Forum but right off you have to agree that nothing will be said in a negative way . I knew it would take me longer to register than the time I’d be on there .

 I could be wrong but sales are the lack of will speak for itself.

If somebody hung out on the White's forum and kept speaking negatively about a White's model I would at some point remind them that doing such a thing becomes trolling at some point. Looks like time for your reminder as regards the Orx Chuck. We get it - you think it is priced too high for what it offers. They are not going to lower the price just for you so may as well get over that part. :smile:

   I think you for the friendly reminder of reminding me that they are  not going to change their price of the ORX on my say so alone .

 Oh well that’s life .

Trying to turn the ORX into a Deus with a wishlist of additional features isn't going to achieve anything, and sort of defeats the purpose of a cheaper and more simplified Deus regardless of how it compares with other detectors on the market .  It is what it is and I doubt whether the pricing will change given that they have a huge fan base in Europe.  In time if it doesn't achieve sales targets then we may see some movement in price.

Hi Goldpick  

I have to agree with you on whatever the ORX is that’s the way it’s going to be.

 I myself was wanting the ORX to coin hunt in parks and school grounds. In all the videos seen so far you find the person detecting in a field with shovel in hand . Over all the videos not one time have I seen the pinpoint mode used on the detector and I’m not talking about the M6 Pinpointer . I’m sure in a field you can make a hole as big as one likes . That don’t hold true in somebody’s yard on the size of the hole. I know why they don’t bother pinpointing because of the need to hold a button down for two seconds for it to be operational.

 I’d really enjoy seeing just how well the pinpoint mode on the ORX works even if it takes two seconds out of my life to find out.haha

If the pinpoint mode is anything like that on the Deus, then it should be just fine.  Although I tend to pinpoint most of the time using the drawback method till the target is at the tip of the coil vs the actual pinpoint mode.  Usually a very quick and accurate method for me when detecting in all types of areas, especially with the smaller 9" coils.

Thanks for the quick reply on the other way to pinpoint. I’ve seen it done before on videos but for myself I’ve yet to give it a try . In the past my detector had a trigger to pull are a button that you just pushed. I can see I’d have to take a little time to perfect drawing back the coil to pinpoint a target.

Thanks again.

      A friend and I spent a couple days swinging around a couple junk filled ghost towns. I am very familiar with the Xp deus. I had also brought with the new to me Xp ORX. I spent my time swinging both the deus/ORX with the 9 Hf, 9x5Hf and my LF 11x13 coils. I found some good stuff and was really able to put the new ORX to work. I kept the ORX equipped with the 9x5hf coil. Deus with 9Hf coil. Also have my 11x13 on a straight shaft to easily switch to that. These site have been hit hard over the last few years by me and a ton of other people and have seen 3 to 4 large group hunts. Heres a few pics

      I found these buttons yesterday with the ORX. Two of the buttons were "D" buttons and one was a "V" button. While I'm glad the ORX hit the targets I'm unsure how I was able to tell if they were digable targets. Granted I don't have a lot of hours with the ORX but I'm having significant problems trying to identify good targets. The target ID numbers seem to be unreliable and the tones seemed to be slurred once you get past the iron tone. I'm not knocking the machine but was hoping for some tips on the "how to" of recognizing the "dig me" targets.
      I have the HF Elliptical coil and I'm detecting in fairly trashy areas. Any tips would be appreciated. Thanks for looking!
      Any chance XP will push an update that may help with TID and tones?
