TO ALL READERS:
* Yes, zi call a Deus a Deus or the Originall Deus.
** As I stated, maybe twice, I am sorrh. I made the post after some comments from people in e-mails, PM's or phone discussions who pointed out they didn"t like the 'I' added to the Deus.
*** Maybe I should have just asked who prefers Deus and who favors Deus I?
**** I don't dive but on the other CalabasIh videos I have made positive comments. I watch them, and like others, I learned some things from them. I posted and let him know I liked his CalReluc program using the Mono mode and he said he would share his settings with me. I don't have a problem with CB.
***** I also contacted some of those I spoke with who didn't like Deus I and asked them directly and most of those 'Back East' also told.me they didn't like CB. I suggested the pay attention to the video content and what can be learned. That is the important part.
--> I do not have a Deus because zi just didn't care for them, but I have had 4 of the XP ORX units and they worked well for me and the places I used them.
I also made it very clear that after watching many videos from Calabash, Gary Blackwell and a few others, I am going to be adding a Deus II to my working detector battery.
Again, I am sorry if my initial post came off offensive
And OregonGregg, certainly you must know my "7 year" comment was not referring to you. I just grabbed a number because you have also seen newer members to this hobby make suggestions or ask questions that seem to come from a very unknowledgable petson.
We all can have sense of humor, too. Look how we often UtahRich and you have had back-and-forths about you and the FORS CoRe or Racer II with the snake coil.
I wasn't referring to you, but to those who seem to not want to learn but are quick to try and appear knowledgeable but come across as if very skilled and knowledgable.
Now, and I am including me, we need to take a breath, not nit-pick, and just enjoy this great sport and the videos that can help us along.
