    Has anyone had any luck loosening up the Vance Muffs?

    Is it possible to loosen up the death grip that they have on my skull just a bit? Tight, but they do have great sound! :detecting:

    Hard Times Token!!!

    ​I went to work this morning with the Deus for a few hours in hopes of another Spanish coin, but no such luck. :P I found a few keepers. A couple weren't worth posting. One was a blank copper disk. 1825 Farthing 1857 Hard Times Token. A couple of silvers. 1920 5 cents and a 1968...

    Finally! The Deus knocks one off the bucket list.

    Finally, I found a real! I thought I had a hammered English at first, until I saw 'ole Phil's name. I hunted the same area last week with the Etrac and the 13" coil and the X5 coil. Maybe I just didn't get my coil over it then. When I hit it with the deus.... I was using 0 disc. I love 0...

    Full tones falsing on shallow ground (Mineralized outcrops)

    I was out in the woods hunting today in an area with granite outcrops. When using full tones, I was getting high pitched background noise when going over the granite. When I switched to two tones, etc... the noise left. It was much, much quieter, even though it would false occasionally. I...

    Coronet LC and a couple of more goodies.

    I was back at the farm where I found the Rev. War button. The blackflies were relentless. I could only hunt for a few hours. In a few weeks, the Canadian fall will creep up on them and they'll all be dead! Muahahahaha! Anyway, to the finds. I thought for sure that I had a gold ring. Once I...

    RNB Battery

    The RNB battery is a fantastic product. I never did post a review, but after a year-plus of hunting hard.... I can still hunt for days before a "2 hour" charge. That is all. :cheers:

    The DEUS surprises me yet again!

    Back at a farm that I've been to many times before, hunting in 8khz and reactivity 2, TX2, Disc 1, Iron volume 1. It took me half the day to realize that I had the silencer on 2.... Things improved once I lowered it to 0, but that just may have been luck. Nothing was hayed, the grass was...

    Deep target audio. Reactivity 3/Full tones

    When you have a deep target using reactivity 3, response 4 and full tones, do you find that the tone jumps out at you slightly? It almost pulses a bit compared to that deep iron chirp? I have had a tone like this a few times in the last couple of weeks, and it's been a deeper non ferrous...

    The DEUS goes to work on a pounded site!

    I was out the other day for a hunt with a friend of mine. He took me to his go-to spot that he's hunted 30+ times. He has found many coins there, but according to him, it had dried up. I too was there once before with the Etrac and the small coil. I only found one coin that day and a couple...

    Give me your best "ground balance notch" story....

    When has this setting helped you out in the field? I haven't even used it yet. :wiggle: :wacko:

    How I feel out in the field after a few hunts....

    :twodetecting: All kidding aside... Who has a trashy park program? Someone mentioned that they hunt in 8 khz, and notch out mid to high 90's and 30 or less? What about reactivity and the rest? Any advice would be great.

    New Deus owner here. I consider myself good with the Etrac, but...

    This Deus is a whole different world! I used to use multi tone on the ETrac. Should I stick to full tones when using my programs? I've learned a lot in my first couple of hunts, but I find myself getting a brain lock trying to remember all of the tweaks and what does what.... I'm getting...

    Hi guys. The Deus is on it's way!

    Longtime ETrac user here adding this amazing detector to my arsenal. I look forward to meeting and learning from you guys. Expect the odd newbie question here and there! :twodetecting: Happy hunting.

    Which goes deeper? 9" concentric or the 10 " Elliptical DD 18khz

    Hi everyone, I have an xterra 70, but it's been a while since I used it. I am bringing a friend out with me tomorrow and I'd like to give him max depth. The ground is very friendly without a lot of junk. 9" coil or 10" DD 18khz? Would the concentric be better for coin shooting? Last time...

    FYI - Repair costs for a "Voltage Overload" error:surprised:

    I just received an email from Minelab America. There is a problem on the main PC Board and it is not a problem that can be serviced at the component level. This would require a board replacement. The prices would be as follows: Etrac Main PCB #5904-0139 $910.52 Labour 1.5 hours @ $80.00 per...
