Orx Is On The Way..

Recommended Posts


Calabash my ORX arrived Thursday.  I have never used an XP product before and would be keenly interested in your thoughts on this unit.  I would also be interested in knowing what your best setup for relic hunting turns out to be.

Thanks

I have never owned an xp,  I'm tempted to try one also.  I hear a lot of good things about them, what sends a chill up my leg is the light weight. My aching shoulder would love it. I think it would complement my nox 800 rather well.   Just a tad pricey, I can live with that. I also like the simplicity of the controls.  I don't use a detector full time to be able to remember all the fine tune settings that the deus has. I'll let the guinea people try them out first before I make my final decision. I like Calabash's videos he does in his test garden. I hope he videos it also in his patch of nasty  test dirt he has.  I have to wonder if the ORX was designed to compete with the Equinox?

Deus fine tuning???

Let’s see

disc

reactivity.

Those are the ones.  Disc setting you will use the same one loads of times.  Speed setting or reactivity is easy.  Shift on the fly.  Leave silencer at -1.

Your detect programs can be saved and named on Deus.

Not a hard detector to run.

Hardest part is understanding how the ID system works.  And associated assigned tones for vdi of target.

I’ll watch the ORX videos and read the feedback.  I don’t need one as I have Deus units already.

Reactivity has 123 settings I'am sure the Orx 1 is the same as Deus 2 . Orx 2 and 3 are larger moves up the scale than 

the Deus and effect depth.

Coin Fast seems to have a Silencer setting while Coin Deep has  -1 none. My preferred set up is the coin deep program 

set up in Coin Fast and saved in one of the empty slots 5 or 6 and lower the Disc from pre set 7 to 5 and Sensitivity up

to 95 if conditions allow.

Thanks🙂 I do like the no frills Deus and for anybody new to detecting it will be great to be away from all the Deus crackpot killer programs and the self doubt that causes.

      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

      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,
