  1. Dig all pulltab and (if possible) foil. High school football/soccer fields are usually low on trash. Aaron
  2. Took my buddy Kenny w me back to the high school again. Tons of clad, don’t think it’s been detected in over 20yrs judging by the amount of coins and the years and depth of them. 3hrs of detecting between the 2 of us produced around $7 in clad, a big silver ring, a big brass medallion and some costume jewelry. Kenny ended up finding $3.25 alone in quarters w his new MXT! Thanks! Aaron
  3. Exactly, and that’s my main point. I had MI6 set up and then for some mysterious reason, the probe literally had no power or at least barely enough for 1” of depth. And then tried to get it back running again, forget it😡 That’s the great thing about Garret ProPointer, it’s just sooo darn reliable! Aaron
  4. Yeah,,, I used the MI6 first time out, had it paired up & set. Somehow the sensitivity settings got messed up, got tired of screwing around w it and went back to the car for the ever reliable Carrot. Still haven’t used the MI6….🙄 Aaron
  5. No gold, however this site has A LOT of potential, lots of coins! Thanks for watching…..Aaron
  6. Awesome Cliff! 👍 APL
  7. Here’s a short demo I did in the standard Relic program demonstrating the D2’s ability to “see through” coke and still detect a hammered coin. Hmmmm….thought that only the Tarsacci could do that…..🤔 Aaron https://youtu.be/F2jxngzWF1U
  8. My dealer (Don @ North Georgia Relics) told me XP isn’t selling the D2 coils separately till the fall. Aaron
  9. Great explanation Sir.
  10. https://www.kellycodetectors.com/tarsacci-mdt-8000-metal-detector Hmmm interesting new pricing too😳 I’ve got one new unit left, w 12” BEAST coil & ALL the accessories, for A LOT cheaper! And,,,, I CAN instruct you how to run it! Do you think they can?😂 Aaron
  11. The BEST discrimination is your SHOVEL Aaron
  12. The D2’s discrimination is similar to the ATPro’s in that it has a adjustable tone break on the size of the iron you want to disc out, or rather it has broad iron range. Let’s say your working on a site that has a lot of a specific size nail(s). You can adjust that broad iron disc just to point to where it breaks that specific iron up (tone break), not totally out, or whatever you prefer. Aaron
  13. Thanks!👍 I really think it’s really important for your first X amount of hours to dig a lot of junk. In turn, building confidence in your decision to dig or not too. As I said in the video, there’s definitely a lot of audio nuances in this D2 audio, it’s also in the Goldmaxx Power also, ( a 20yr old machine!). Those French REALLY know what their doing…. Aaron
  14. Yes Chase, in short audio is really most important aspect of discrimination, and it really is GREAT on the D2. However the ultimate discriminator is your shovel,,,so you just never know… Aaron
  15. I found this very interesting…. IDK, maybe it’s just me but I wouldn’t be walking around NYC w all the au unless I had a armed guard next to me. Aaron
  16. Yep, agreed. One thing though, the intelligent audio of the D2 can at least help you weed through a lot of the irregular or mangled pieces of aluminum. A nice round ring is always gonna sound nice. Aaron
  17. Yes, been out 2x’s. 2 weeks ago,(posted a video of that) and last week, didn’t find much. Waters warming up, people started swimming last week. There’s very little to find but hopefully that will change with the warm weather coming… Thanks Aaron
  18. WTG👍Judging by all the non fe targets you found, there’s probably still plenty more there. The D2 like all w all XP machines are fantastic in iron, and more time you get on it the less you’ll be digging, especially the BIG iron. Aaron
  19. This is not a exciting video, however I am hunting in ground that has been POUNDED by myself over many years now. The Tarsacci and Etrac didn’t leave much behind in this area except in the mid conductor range. I still manage to find Buffalos here and once in a great while some gold. Notice the difference in audio between the various pieces of aluminum…. Aaron
  20. I’ve been discussing this issue of target ID’s with Keith Southern, and that’s exactly what he is saying. When using a multiple frequency program, various targets in different frequencies are going to weight different, and w that wide VDI range, their gonna have that type of irregular pattern….
  21. Great job on the categorization, that’s A LOT of work! Yes, I noticed the gold ring numbers a couple weeks ago when I tested my jewelry. I’m actually disappointed w these numbers especially w the ones in the 80s & 90s. I don’t understand why silver dollars are at 99, usually items that high are in the iron wrap around. There’s very little differentiation between medium to large silver coins, not good…. Im no engineer, however I do know it’s not a good idea to be intermingling gold targets w silver. Hopefully this will be addressed in a future update….. Aaron
  22. Unfortunately, your going to have to dig A LOT of foil to find that elusive gold chain, (that I’m still looking for too!). I strongly believe that if your looking for small gold that that, you need to be looking in places it is lost most often, and trash being on the low side. For example soccer and football fields where there is physical contact amongst people, or tot lots where mothers lose bracelets and chains playing w their kids. Also, being too reliant on your VDI can be a mistake as the audio is even more important, volumes could be said on this. The guys w the old beep and digs especially the Tesoro’s know what I’m talking about…. Now if only the Deus 2 could have the same audio that the good old Goldmaxx Power has,,, now that’s a machine thats TUNED to find gold and does NOT like foil! Aaron
  23. So far, the only gold I’ve found is the crucifix I posted a few weeks ago. It was a solid 37-38, and I was using the XY. It was making a little squiggly dot in the center of the screen. I’ll try to do a video on small gold conductors …. Aaron
  24. According to the link, it recommends charging it for 3hrs, and not charging it overnight. And also, not running it dry, but keeping it “topped off” Glad this thread was started👍 Aaron
