I am very surprised to see this gold pop out at my local beach. Especially with the last 2 years of COVID-19 stimulus money turn our beaches into a big pothead beach. But anyway 14k wedding band 14k earring and a 18k wedding band. My buddy using his Equinox only found a few silver toe rings.

Nice recoveries! Do you think the detector is that much better or is it the operators knowledge and experience? I have found two mens gold bands with the F75 in lawn/dirt conditions, both came in as nickel numbers which is what I expected.
Just curious on your thoughts….

What a great day at the beach you had. Helps offset the cost of that new Deus 2. Thanks for sharing.

Little of both. I have been hunting beaches now 14years and have the experience but it's also technology too that helps me get to the deeper gold. It's only April and I have already 9 gold rings that's not counting the junk which is probably around 80 rings all pulled with the Deus 2. Most of the rings I have found were pass the 15 inch mark. It's like smartphones the Equinox is a iphone max plus but the Deus 2 is a Samsung S22 ultra. I know Minelab is cooking up something but hopefully they will have the hardware fixed plus take there time make sure everything is right before shipping anything out to the customer. There is a BIG difference between Minelab and XP also. Minelab has there machines put together in Singapore by 7-9 year olds while the Deus 2 is put together in house.

Very cool find, congratulations! I am new to the Deus II - hopefully this week it will arrive. If it's not to much trouble can you PM me your beach program? If not no problem.
Thanks Tony NJ

What’s “big time” consist of in inches? Did you compare these unknown targets with both detectors before digging? Did you have the detectors in comparable settings ( sensitivity, search mode, coil size etc) ?

I concur!…..I seem to be retrieving deeper targets than what I did with my Equinox…. I know I’m not imagining things either!

I use beach one on the Nox sensitivity set at 21/22 recovery speed at 5. Iron bias 0. Yes still big time difference in depth. My buddy uses a nox we compare targets all the time. Yes I am hitting Quarters at very deep depths and Equinox saying it's iron (-5). His settings is beach 2 sensitivity 23 recovery speed 4/5. Iron bias 0. I am getting 4/6 inches more with the Nox!!! That's with Deus 2 cut back some....salt sensitivity at 6 and sensitivity at 93. If I put it at 95 on sensitivity and salt at 7/8 who knows???

This is my 2 tone program beach sensitive. Sensitivity 93 salt sensitivity 6. Recovery speed 1/1.5. silencer 1. Audio I set iron at 100 kzh and good targets 700kzh. The high tone at 993 makes everything sound distorted. Discrimination I set that at 6. Audio response 7.... this makes the difference here with this machine. I have several other programs also.

I posted it to Mark...I don't mind people using it. 2 tones is the way to go. Use a good mid tone. I might make another program with 4/5 tones too. I love the 5 tones of the Vanquish.

I want to make a edit : to where I said : I am getting 4/6 inches more with the Nox!!!::::::
That should say 4/6 inches more with the Deus 2.....sorry have a lot on my plate at the moment. I will be cutting my days on the beach by a lot because my wife will really need my help she has breast cancer so definitely will be cutting back to once a week to get exercise and clear my mind.

I understood what you meant.

Sorry to hear about your wife’s health situation. I pray for a speedy recovery.
