  1. It works perfectly, it doesn't matter if it's salt water or fresh water. Any type of coax cable is fine for this purpose. There is no need to worry about this. I only snorkel with it, but I don't think it would work any differently for deeper dives.
  2. I don't think there would be any problem underwater with the external battery connector. A higher frequency head for the deus 2 would be interesting. I did a small table test, but in combination with wet soil. The test item was a piece of 14K chain weighing 1.5 grams and a hoop earring (0.6 gram). The ID number in the air was chain: 31, earring: 39 When placed on the ground, the chain is 26-28, buried 4 cm deep it is already solid 25, or an iron sound. This depends on the set program. I recently found an 18g stainless steel chain in water, a solid 25, but it was a wide, long signal. If you use the NOTCH function, it greatly reduces the chance of finding a gold chain.
  3. The white HF heads also worked great in the water. They were real chain hunter heads. I hope there will be a smaller head for the deus 2, perhaps with different or higher frequencies.
  4. On a beach or water, jewelry weighing 0.5 g of gold is already enough for the limit.
  5. I'm a freshwater beach hunter, I've never found a gold nugget and I probably never will. I'm satisfied with jewelry. Of course, I would be happy with a couple of nice gold chains. I'm going to test version 0.6 and version 0.71 with my buddy on the same chain piece. With factory programs, in a shallow part of the beach. I wonder what the difference between the two versions will be.
  6. The experience of the last few weeks in freshwater hunting is that the deus 2 is very good for small gold objects. Several pieces of earrings have already been dug up from fresh water, the smallest weighing 0.5 g, all open type, so they were difficult targets. With the Beach Sens and Sensitive Fulltone programs (the latter with pitch sound). Gold chains.. well, this is a more difficult topic, I am testing it in the field, but there are no satisfactory results yet.
  7. I tried this square wave sound in combination with the Picth mode on the Beach sens program, in fresh water. It helped me very well to locate the target. It was also a great help in determining the size of the objects. It saved me a lot of time. 13. The Beach P program is practically the same as the Bech program, but does it put the sounds in Pich mode? Or are there other changes, for example in the frequencies?
  8. The jack connector will not be damaged by splashing water. I'm almost sure, I hunted in water with the Deus 1 for years, the 3.5 jack connector on the waterproof case is no better and no worse than this one. I'm going to test it with my good old KillerBee's headphones wading in water. The BH headphones are very good, but I prefer closed headphones when I'm just wading in the water. ------------ I tested it in a bucket of water for an hour, there is no problem, the headphones work perfectly with it. The remote control and the connector were submerged in the water. So for those who hunt wading and like to use closed headphones, this adapter is the perfect solution. -----------
  9. Could you describe the exact type or a link on the Digikey page?
  10. That's why I didn't buy from the machines sold in the first round. I waited until the 9 " coil became available. I need a small coil to search in water.
  11. What type of connector can this be? I searched the webhop of several electronic parts distributors but haven't found it yet. It can be some kind of sensor connector. Can it be Bulgin or Amphenol type?
  12. The DEUS 2 I bought already has version 0.6. I found two programs in it that are not in the manual. 13. Beach P and 14. Fast 40. I did not find any description of these. Do you know more about these?
  13. The manual suggest use any land program in freshwater. It's still too cold here for me to try.
  14. I am glad that such a good conversation has developed on the subject. I hope soon real results will show what this detector can do. Finding the chain in the salt water environment is the hardest, for sure. But there are also a lot of lost chains and small pieces of jewelry in freshwater. Rings and coins and silver are the first targets to be found. My own experience when I run out of rings from an area. With a good machine like the white HF coil on Deus, the smaller targets and chains come in line. This is also due to the fact that in the absence of signals, I search much more focused for small targets. Here in Europe, I cannot find heavy silver coins in the water, unfortunately. Even a smaller chain brings good grams to the kitchen.
  15. I really hope so! I have high hopes for this machine. In fact, I would be very pleased with a gold chain, open earring comparison test. D2, D1, Nox etc. Equinox in freshwater wasn’t a real player for me, no matter how much energy I put into it. In my three years of use, luck couldn’t have escaped me that much. I regularly found similar items with DEUS 1 (earring, studs, bracelets, chains). When the HF coil came out on the market, this hit rate jumped up spectacularly. I would expect the same from this machine. If Deus 2 would handle heavy mineral soils better than the previous version. Maybe it would work well in mineral mud or black sand beds.
  16. Unfortunately, it wasn't my machine, I could only play with it for 15-20 minutes. (I hope to test with my own machine soon) The test objects, small size 14K 1g children's ring, 14K, 1.3g thin gold bracelet folded into a U-shape about 7 cm long, 14K 2.3 g thicker, but hollow gold chain approx. 7cm long, with a buckle on one side. I tried General and Beach and Deus Mono. With the Deus mono program, it detected the test lacs at a higher frequency but no better than the deus 1 with the round HF coil. I laid the objects on a heavily clayey sandy soil, adjusting the soil balance on the machine. I looked at the manual, where can I find a mention of the air test? I haven't found it yet.
  17. Calabash Digger: Thank you for your time and work on behalf of the detector community! I love watching the test videos you made! What I think a lot of people are curious about is the small size of the hard-to-detect gold objects that work on the machine. In a saltwater or freshwater environment. Open earrings and gold chains are among the hardest targets. Deus 1 worked very well in freshwater against such targets, he was a true champion. Equinox did not live up to my expectations. I only tested the Deus 2 with an air test, but it performed very poorly by default. I’m a little worried that the machine won’t be efficient enough to detect these objects. Who cares about coins when hunting on the beach, where jewelry is the number one destination. Exactly the jewelry that other hunters are unable to find. 🙂
  18. Xp Deus silencer helps Very interesting video! May it help eliminate the ground noise in water to hear the small low conductors. I am curious how will works in water hunting with it.
  19. Welcome to the forum. Freshwater gold chain hunting is not an easy sport. In my environment, three types of machines are used for this. Garrett AT gold or Pro because it is cheap and waterproof, XP deus, preferably HF round or HF elliptical head. I think this is where most chains can be found with Deus. The new machines are the Equinox 800/600, this is also popular, I have been using it for two years but I only found 1 chain with it. That's not the real thing for me.
  20. This situation will not change for a while. There will also be changes within Europe when the UK leaves the EU without an agreement in December. The Xp is French and I think the English market is the biggest in this hobby. And in continental Europe, it buys most used detectors from England.
  21. It is interesting how few use Deus in freshwater in the US. Here in Europe, this machine is popular among water hunters. I really like to use the HF scroll for jewelry hunting in the lakes. But I know several hunters who can easily find a lot of chains, small earrings, the back of an earring with the old low frequency coil. The HF coil is much more sensitive to gold. The gold range changes as the frequency increases. Therefore, it is much more difficult to learn typical values, coins. In a very trashy place, it is more difficult to select the gold range.
  22. ⁉️ Which one is better? Has anyone done a comparison test between the two coils for a jewelry hunt in the water? (freshwater or land) Both are able to use the same frequency. 28 kHz is very good for detecting gold. When I hunt in the water it is a very useful feature of target ID normalization. On the of LF coil, this was a big advantage. I set the gold range, so I only dug out the signals that belong to it. The HF 9" coil is great, but when I increase the frequency the VDI changes, getting higher and higher. The upper range will become narrower. This makes it difficult to decide whether to dig or not. Let's look at an example. A 1.5 g 14K wedding ring is the test object. HF 9 "coil at 14 kHz = ID 50, 28 kHz = ID 65, 56 kHz = ID 79. X35 11 "coil 11.3 kHz = ID 54, 16.4 kHz = ID 54, 25.4 kHz = ID 54! If I use frequency offset these numbers will change a bit. The general opinion of many people is that the HF coil is the best. I'm not so sure about that. I looked at this idea in terms of the gold jewelry hunt.
  23. Great topic! What do you think guys, the Dual Filed work with 14,8V Lithium-ion battery pack? If the circuit tolerate, give some depth gain?
  24. Thank you for your response Chase, sorry to answer just now. These beaches are very different, with a small pond with a pebble bottom. From here came many other gold objects, many silver objects, including many silver bracelets and chains. In addition, there are more than a dozen different gold pendants. But only 3-4 chains. I searched very carefully with different machines. Deus, Excalibur, Equinox. Another example is a very popular but large beach with volcanic sludge where the machines go crazy with lots of tiny iron trash. There with many colleagues who regularly walk the water. The ring is a very rare hit here. Nowadays I tend to find open earrings. I guess because they are harder to find. Interestingly, those who use Deus often find chains. I see a lot of people use Park1 / 2 Filed 1/2 programs in freshwater. I couldn't make these programs stable because they produce continuous fake signals in the 1-2 range. Another possibility is that there are so many tiny little trash in the water. I use the beach1 program because it gives me the most stable machine and acceptable depth. Somehow I always come back to this. I'm trying to create a setting that can detect chains in the 1-2 range without a lot of false signals. I find many small pieces of lead. 3-6-8 range, much more than Deus. But less aluminum than Deus. I think about the multifrequency. Sorry for the bad kindness, the translator helped. I want beach 1 mode stability with single high frequency for gold. 🙂
  25. Is there anyone who has already found a gold chain with this machine? Not just one piece, but one who has already found several pieces. Without pendant. I had high hopes for chain hunting in the freshwater, but I couldn't find any. No bracelet, no necklace. I'm talking about gold because silver is an easy target.
