  1. Thanks Tnsharpshooter. I was in coin deep, and probably should have been in coin fast considering the area was fairly contaminated. In my opinion, It just doesn't have that "dig" me tone that I'm accustomed to hearing. Maybe it's operator error, maybe I'm not use to the tones. I'll follow your advice and keep listening and learning. Question, does the Deus have that clear "dig" me tones in contaminated spots or does it have the many shades of gray also? Some of my spots are really trashy and I really need to descriminate on what I'm digging. The clean areas are easy to dig all the targets, the trashy spots not so easy.
  2. 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?
  3. Thanks guys. I agreeTn, seems like the Nox desciminates better in my hunting scenarios. The ID seems to be much more helpful on the Nox also. The design and weight goes to the XP of course, it's like swinging a feather. I like both machines and I'm still learning each, but I'm leaning more toward the Nox at this point.
  4. Yes it was! I don't have many days like that.
  5. Inquiring minds (and me) want to know this answer. šŸ˜ I know there's a bunch of variables, but I would love to hear opinions from people who own and hunt with both. I'm currently learning both machines and it's hard to have one in both hands for comparison. šŸ¤·šŸ¼ā€ā™‚ļøšŸ˜„
  6. Possibly.... there was also a good bit of camp lead there also so it may be a small camp. We went back today to follow up on the site but the farmers had it freshly plowed. It will be after harvest now before I can get back in there.
  7. They were all New Orleans mint marks. I would love to find one with a San Francisco mark.
  8. Groundscanner and I stumbled upon a spot and I pulled these three 1850 era half dimes out. Iā€™m guessing the flat piece of lead with the ā€œXā€ scratched in it is some type of game piece. Pretty good day. I was running the Nox on field 2. Thanks for looking!
  9. 14 inches. WOW! Thanks for posting videos on the ORX. Keep them coming.
  10. That's good information for new XP users. Thanks Calabash!
