  1. Steve that's a great idea and I certainly will do that, will be interesting to see how they compare and which one I prefer best.
  2. Well its been a while since I updated this post, thanks to everyone for all the comments and recommendations, I ended up with both. 😂 Orx and a Deus. I have just got to spend time with them now and get to know there language😀 . Heading out on the weekend for some fun.
  3. Thanks again guys, I still haven't bought anything yet. Unfortunately in Australia there are no good deals on new ones anymore, I don't recall us getting the offer of a free pin-pointer either😭. The prices have risen over the last couple of months, a new ORX now comes in at $1399.00 with wireless headphones. A little to expensive for me at this stage, I really think headphones should be part of any deal with detectors... I am pretty disappointed because they are $150 dearer than earlier this year. cheers and merry Xmas guys
  4. Thank you guys for your help, yeah no wireless headphones with the Deus either Jeff. I am thinking I might get the new ORX with the 9 HF round and wireless phones... I also get the 5 year warranty which is a bonus if something goes wrong. Thanks again for your help guys:)
  5. Thanks Chase, the deus comes with the HF eliptical coil, I also noted that the HF coils can go down to around 15khz so that would be low enough for some areas and targets I hunt. But like you said the 25khz spot is where I think I would most likely use it. Some places I have hunted with the NOX I have had to turn off M/F and just use 20 -40 khz as the ground was just so noisy and the machine worked wonders on single Freq in that particular area.
  6. HI Jeff, the Deus has the elliptical HF coil with it, it also has the remote control and no headphones. I was thinking maybe getting the round 9 HF for the ORX if I go that way. Our coins ring in pretty high, at least the old silver and copper coins do anyway. Our decimal coins 1 and 2 dollars come in around 20-22 on the NOX.
  7. Gday guys, I have the opportunity of buying a used Deus for a little less than a new ORX. I have been mulling over this for weeks, does anyone have any advice. I really only want an XP to be able to put it into a backpack, trek into the bush and use it for relic hunting, and a little gold here and there.The warranty factor is something that is swaying me towards the new ORX machine...but I know the Deus has many more features and options. I already have a Equinox 800 for beaches, coins and relic's but I am just wanting something easier for a few locations where I want to travel in stealth wise. So pretty much the question I am asking what would you do, Buy a S/Hand Xp Deus or Buy a new Xp ORX with the desired coil (round hf coil) and Warranty. cheers guys.
  8. Just wondering guys, It just seems that FE-2-0 would be using a very limited filtering system, but by moving it up to FE-2-4 would have been a more accurate result and comparison between FE2 and FE modes. I have been doing some backyard testing here and I really like the FE-2-4 an a Swing/Speed of 6, it seems to run very nicely in my test garden. edit: Thanks for posting the Video Steve.
  9. Yeah be interesting to see how it goes on the new settings. Might have a play in the yard later.
  10. Yep totally enjoyable video well done XP.
  11. Thanks again NSC for all your info on the shaft, cant wait to get it all setup. cheers
  12. Top information again guys... look forward to seeing how yours turn out as well DukeBoxer and thanks for the link. Thinking about the locking pin I will drill a couple of holes (3 or 4) as I want to use in the surf as well. NSC how is yours going is it much better do you think, I image it would be though.
  13. I have been wondering the same thing, I also received my plugger locks yesterday I will have to grab a shaft next.
  14. Very nice will have to try that out, thanks for posting that Steve. Those 1 and 2 dollar coins add up quickly...got to love them?
