I think "discontinued" is a better word and the Deus 1 has not been discontinued.the same manufacturer obsoleted the 3 fixtures
Deus 1 and 2 are both VLF as are many current detectors. BFO is no longer current. Multi frequency is nothing new.
Spot on bud,i can also prove the same with my 30 year old design non motion C Scope 1220xd that is still in production to this day lol.Old tech but still useful.From Merriam-Webster, the definition of obsolete --"no longer in use or no longer useful"! I guess I am out of touch but I still consider my Compadre useful and if one certain test "proves" another detector is "obsolete", I can "prove" the Compadre "obsoletes" the Deus 2.
Can you tell me how big the foil was and how much higher than the dime it was.Cheers.As far as the platform itself. Yep it is obsolete. It can still sell though. If Xp comes out with Hf elliptical coil for Deus 2 then it really is time for Deus 1 to be classified as obsolete.
Did at max obsolete at pro ?
But at pro still can be bought.
Can a Deus 1 user locate tonally everything a Deus new 2 user can ? Using same size coils? Nope. Deus 1 round Hf 9” coil won’t help in either of these tests. Both deus 1 (LF coil) and deus 2 had 9” coils on them. Sweeping from same direction in the wild.
Did a couple videos. Now if test was with just coin(dime) and nail then 9” Hf coil would indeed help Deus 1 performance.
One video in daylight one in dark.
Video in dark same as daylight version except nail was added to same plane as dime (foil still elevated). Like in first video.
Deus 2 dominates.
I’ll post both vids here.
What signals does said detector pick up when submerged to 20 meters?Squirrel,what if i said to you i know of a detector that can tonally pick up a dime that is 1 inch away from a nail lengthways on to it and an inch above it and also a piece of aluminium on the same plane to the other side of the dime.What if i then said that when the coil is swept over all three targets it will give a different tone for each target accurately......low grunt for iron,mid tone for the aluminium and high tone for the dime.what if i then said i could raise the aluminium piece 1 inch above the dime and still get the same accurate tones......with the high tone giving a much stronger resonse than the deus.Would you think i was fantasizing
You are correct. I don't know a lot about fmf but in the two weeks I have used deus 2 I know I like it a lot. I have a rather large back yard that was many years ago used as a nursery (flower shop). I have gridded the yard with other detectors and deemed it coin free. Every time I wonder around back there with deus 2 I find 4 or five more coins. It totally amazes me how you can here all these differing sounds around the coin but still identify the coin and its numbers on the screen and as proof the things with different sounds and values on the screen sometimes appear with the target in the dirt. I can't be sure about their orientation in regards to the coin. I will leave this up to you guys.proves how much you know
