I will tell you a secret the hf coils take away 95 % of the chatter almost silent at times.

I think that's what throws a lot off too ,that it is 5 or 6 different singl freq vlf detectors in one.

Not to mention it being an underwater detector too.

I like to think of the Deus as an enthusiast's detector, a machine with full adjustability on just about every setting you can think of to suit a broad range of sites. I think that fact scares some away from the Deus, especially those first starting out, or wanting a more simplified detector with so called instant results.

I remember a mate who owned a CTX also went out and purchsed Deus after hearing all the rave reviews. First test he did was compared depths on a coin with both detectors, and immediately came up with the conclusion that the CTX was the superior machine. 6-8 months down the track after initally talking about ditching the Deus, something has clicked and he now understands what a potent detector it can be when both set up properly, and utilised on sites that suit its strengths - and also with the realisation that depth isn't everything.

I also think many over complicate things by switching settings, tones and frequencies too often to ever come up with a base program for day to day detecting. Best to stick a base program that offers tones that you feel comfortable or familiar with, and then look at playing with expert settings etc down the track.

So yes, I do think many do part ways with the Deus after finding out it is not a magic wand, it does require a decent number of hours to be confident that you are not leaving good targets in the ground.

To be honest, I really don't see that many up for sale, certainly no more than any other detector. I mean look at how many AT Pros are up for sale now with the imminent release of the AT max.

Wish I had known this before buying the11" but the hf was marketed to folks with mineralzation issues which I dont have plus I've gotten used to it. Just hope I dont miss anything in full tones where the upper tones can be harder to pick out in heavy trash(smile).

You're absolutely right. The mistake I made when I first got the Deus was to try to set up a bunch of specialty programs to fit each site. Finally I settled on one program I really like and just tweek it as needed per each site.

My Deus is not chattery at all

Someone in this thread mentioned their Deus is chattery. Mine isn't chattery whatsoever unless I get near my underground electric supply running from the pole to the house.

Here in the parks of So. Cal. I seem to always get chatter. Sometimes so much so I have to leave the park because I can't tell when I get over a good target. But, in some parks, the Deus will run fairly quiet. I was with two of my friends hunting a park in Culver City, Calif. They were using Garrett 250's and had no chatter at all, but the Deus, I put it on speaker, was chattery and they both said it would drive them nuts with all the chatter it was putting out. I keep trying to find a quiet program, but it still eludes me.:shrug:
I still had a good hunt, even with the chatter. 54 quarters, 63 dimes and a silver ring. So, I don't think my program is too bad, I just need to find the right tweak or tweaks to settle it down. Now, I was using the nine inch HF coil with the 28 frequency, so that may have had something to do with the chatter. I tried the 14 frequency, but the chatter was worse. But, even with this seemingly non-fixable noise problem, I still won't be selling my Deus.

Cal, I'm not sure. Probably somewhere around 90. Sometimes I set it as low as 84 to 86. I change it around until I find a setting that I can deal with. Sometimes it doesn't seem to make any difference. Also, I get a bit nervous if I have to set the sens to low. I feel I may be missing to much.

Cal, I don't think I've ever had my sens over 90 more than four or five times ever when detecting in a park. I GB using the pumping method and then going with manual. And, like the CTX, I re-do my GB procedure about every 30 to 40 minutes.

that's tough cant figure that one out as from what I saw here with emi and how the hf coil handled it. Maybe someone will chime in.

modern wifi and underground cables are a killer to the Deus wifi is even worse on the HF coils , price to pay for its power is some places it unusable have to bust out a Tesoro no emi hurts those tanks.
