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!

      Want to know if it will fit inside my camo duffle backpack and don’t want to have to fit the coil on  at the site of use. Could somebody measure this?
      thanks

      I’m a Relic hunting for coins and thinking about getting the HF Elliptical coil to hunt with. I have the ORX with the the HF 9” round coil but thinking about trying the elliptical one .
      Like to hear from anyone who may have used it for coin hunting..
       Thanks ahead of time.

      I’ve been a long time lover of small coils hunting a new location for the first time. 
       I’m wondering why none are being made . It could be I’m the first that ask for one . I don’t look to find it at my door anytime soon.
       All the relic hunters and one coin hunter in the bunch I can see why I’m sucking hind teat.

      I decided to hit a hammered colonial site where the last several times there with the Nox 800 no significant non-ferrous items were found. Every couple trips I might find a cuff button. So was running the ORX with 9” round hf coin in coin fast 28khz, but switching to coin deep at 54 kHz., reactivity 3, sensitivity 94. Found 1792-1812 period American  naval button ( undetermined variety as yet). With 13 5-pointed stars and Philadelphia back mark.Also found cuff link, outside of large 2-pc ball button. 
      Thesewere all found within 45 minutes, and other targets were going to be found for sure. 
      I’m totally impressed with the machine. So much so that last night I  ordered a 9” XP X35 coil, because folks? The XP ORX is a keeper with a long future. Deepest target ( squarenail ) at 1 1/2. Punpointer lengths. (15”-16”)
