Recommended Posts

Two videos....

gardansolyn Published on Jan 7, 2019 The ORX metal detector from XP is an easy to use machine which can locate targets at impressive depths. Deep coins and artefacts can not hide from this machine as this video demonstrates. The MI-6 pinpointer compliments the ORX very well it saves a lot of time when location deep targets.

and....

Gary is really great explaining about the ORX in his videos.  He has a easy layed back way of getting over to you what he wants you to know about the ORX.

The ORX is looking good to me. A simple version of the Deus but still seems to pack a punch. I have swung a friends Deus and the weight is ridiculous and I love the “back phones”. The cost always kept me from taking the plunge but I may have to give one of these a go.

My brother and I have just each ordered one.  With my tennis elbow I am really looking forward to a super lightweight detector.  I can't wait to try out the 9" coil at the farm (large amounts of iron).  I think it will be a great companion detector to the Equinox 800 that I have. 

I would give my eyeteeth for a 9" coil for the Nox. :biggrin:

I don’t think the Orx is gong to have much impact in the gold prospecting world but it looks like it’s going to be a popular option for general purpose detecting. I basically like what I see. It’s funny how it’s tempting to jump on a new model when I don’t actually need one.

A new video just was posted on the net yesterday showing the ORX being used for nugget hunting in Australia. What they were showing I’d say it was doing great.

 Seeing is believing but sometimes do you believe what you see .

I sold my AT pro (too heavy) and my F70 (didn't push enough volume for my poor hearing) and got the ORX as my "backup" detector.  Even at 2.9 lbs I still have to use a swingy thing to support the Nox if I am going to swing it all day.  I have always wanted an XP but couldn't bring myself to spend the money for a new Deus and I didn't want to buy one that was used and possibly get one with issues.

 It’s bad at 39 and holding but it’s pure hell when you’re pushing 78.

LOL  - I keep working my way to lighter and louder detectors.  I need to figure out a way to pair my hearing aids to the detectors.  I told my son that one day I will be limited to watching him detect.

Thats kind of where I’m at. 

Im down to 2 Tesoros and the Makro MKruzer.  The Kruzer is plenty light but those XPs are feather weight and the “back phones” are the icing on the 🎂 

Probably will scoop one up when the IRS return hits the bank!

      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?

      I found my first silver coin with the ORX this week.  A nice 1853 half dime!

      I hit various areas and in the big fields been using the AT Pro with a Nel Big 17x15 coil. Buddy of mine just got the AT MAX with stock coil and goes just as deep as the Pro with the big.
      How does the ORX compare to the MAX? Does it have an All Metal Mode? 
      I like the idea of something super light and the choice of frequencies as the AT Pro doesn't find really small gold targets with it's low freq.

      soooooo, you guys that have both Equinox and XP Deus/Orx,  which one has an edge in separation in trashy park-type areas, comparing same type/size coils of course.....

      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.
      Thanks
