Why do they say Deus is not good in modern trash?

IMO it is an absolute monster in modern trash, as demonstrated by this loot from August.

Sometimes it makes me dance a little if no one is looking.

Maybe I'm just dense and it's suppose to be a secret?

I'm sensing sarcasm here.

I have a spot in my heart for the Minelabs but the Etrac is a complete pig compared to the Deus, needlessly complicated, cant run it wide open because it high-tones iron, such a shame. Big fan here.

If you guys are wondering what the TIDs are,
A: I don't know.
B: Numbers don't matter and
C: Numbers are for suckers.

Can you show all the trash you dug to find all of those incredible finds?

Well last week that question might not have been silly because I was driving around with a bag of garbage in the back of the truck. Picture a ball of mostly non-ferrous metal about 24" in diameter.

I see you've been here a while so you've heard it all before about aluminum ad-nausea, everybody has, they say its common knowledge yet gold is hard to get right?

So let's play a game. I don't have the trash to show you, but I do have the coins and such.

Looking at this pile of metal, does anything stand out?

Assuming you could see the bag of aluminum I threw out, do you think there was anything special about it? If so, how do you think I was able to determine the "special" aluminum. Serious question, give it some thought.

Agreed. Best case scenario the number gives you the same information as the tone. The rest of the time it is less accurate and one is left figuring out the behavior of this graphic overlay at depth and with co-located targets.

This is a bit of a clue and relates to some reinforcing information I got from one of your videos.

Exactly! Anyone with $100 detector or a basic PI can go dig everything and call themselves a relic hunter.
When I used to hunt ducks we used the "in hand identification method" to ID birds in order to not exceed the point limits,,,it wasn't ideal or very precise.:thumbdown:
I prefer to not use that method detecting because digging is more strenuous and public parks full of modern trash are becoming a fragile and endangered venue for detecting. The FBS machines , as well as others , are simply better at letting a detectorist make an educated guess at WHAT they are digging up.

Well you certainly are very good at what you do as can be shown by all the fantastic gold you have detected! I was just curious how much trash you had to dig to get all those great finds.
It would be nice if we never dug one piece of junk to find a good find. It just doesn't happen in the real world. At least not with me. I was just wondering what your percentage of trash to good jewelry finds were.

Don't tell every body, they will be finding all that.

What do you mean you **fig** way more with Deus? What is "fig"?

And therein lies the reason you say the Deus does fine in modern trash. Might as well buy your a beep-N-dig.

As a very selective hunter, not by choice mind you, when I bend over it's got to be worth the dig. Numbers DO matter, and if they are not reliable it is worthless to me.



The real treasure is in the hunt...
