Been using Minelabs, XP Deus machines forever. This one scared me since it's so affordable. Wasn't disappointed at all. Used a factory field program and got 3 IH pennies, a 1890 Seated dime and 2 Shield nickels out of an old field I've been hunting forever. Neat machine. Actually turned on YouTube to learn more about how to set it up afterwards. Very stable machine and can't wait for the next trip out now that I've learned a few things.
