You tube is a bad influence!

I'm getting sucked into buying a new machine by youtube. I've been looking at videos of people relic hunting with the Mindlab Equinox 800 and the Deus and its making me doubt the T2+, but after watching these videos again and again I'm starting to feel confident in the T2+ again. All the targets the Nox was finding my T2+ would have easily found as well. The T2+ is good in trashy areas and has good depth as well and I'm very familiar with it . I think I might hold of on the purchase of a new machine and not fall victim to all the hype just yet. I would appreciate the groups thoughts and advice on this.

Never had the T2 but I had the F75. The F75 is a very good machine. I bought a Deus 1 3 1/2 years ago. I absolutely love it. I have ordered the Deus 2 mainly for salt water but I'll be keeping the 1. The ability to change frequencies and settings on different sites...it's like having several different detectors. I sold my F75 and a few others. If my Deus 2 ever arrives I'll sell off my salt water machine and I'll be down to 2 machines. (Deus 1 and 2). But that's just me, if you love the T2 I wouldn't tell you to sell it to buy something else. Best of luck

I about sold the TM-808 was testing it in the backyard getting ready to sell it making sure it was still working I buried a 10lbs steel weight to test it, it worked so well I decided to keep it.

Their all the same lately.
Until a New ground breaking tech that positively ID's metals in the ground 100% comes along.
Just another money sucking Gambit.

I have a T2 and a Deus. I cannot honestly say that the Deus found something the T2 would not have. I don't think it's numbers are any more accurate but I usually just keep the Deus remote in my pocket unless I want to turn it on to change something. It is lighter and more adjustable in certain ways but I sure wish it had a toggle for all metal like the T2. What I would say is that If you want to try a Deus, now is a good time because many are discarding them for the Deus 2 and you can get them for a pretty good price. I see the price is dropping a little on the Equinox but just wait until the Equinox 2 comes out, then there will be great deals on it. But then again, you will probably be wanting the 2 by then.

You're not going to find much if anything more with it. You will find things you missed as you would with if you went from the x detector to a T2. You're familiar and I assume like using your T2 so I would hold off. But,,, you never know unless you try. If you can get a great deal on a used one and can later sell it for the same $ if you don't like it then why not.

I have heard that FT is supposed to come out with a couple new machines maybe around Summer but who knows. If they don't they could be the next to fall.
