After I took my Deus II to Montenegro for the underwater detecting at the beach, I traded it for some cash and a Deus I with HF coil. The reason is that I just can’t get along with how it sounds. In Montenegro i did take it underwater, but when am i going to snorkel again and find stuff to pay back what it cost ?
The sounds are so confusing to me, like when I was on Sutomore beach a lot of the targets turned out to be very small molten aluminium blobs, while everytime I thought i had a bigger target. I tried all sound settings and I’m tired of having an expensive detector and getting annoyed by it. Also I had a really bad year on the fields here, not justifying having this high-end find-it-all detector. I really liked the old Deus and used it in 2014 to wade in the sea and I found plenty so I’m just going to do that again. I’m not waiting to have a superdeep detector for the underwater part of beach anyway since i can’t dig that deep. I didn’t get my Sovereign GT sold for a decent price so I’ll use it again here at the Belgian coast
Here’s our photos from the 5-day trip in May 2022. The beaches of Houlgate and Villers-Sur-Mer had close to nothing to offer because there weren’t many people that time of year. I found 10 cents lol. I didn’t detect that much anyway.
I did a very stupid thing after swapping my own Deus II : i told my mate I wanted to buy his deus II because he offered it too cheap. I put it for sale and found another guy to trade his deus I and some cash.. and then it turned out my mate didn’ have the WS4 headphones included. So that’s what you get when being presumptious. And stupid. So I guess i did a bad deal there and I’m still trying to fix it as much as possible.
This one I’m selling now for 700. Found someone who wants to give that but I have to drive to there in a week. I have another WS5 and white coil from the other trade i did (moron). I thought I’d keep the WS5 because no one wants to spend more than 150 to that, which is almost what they’d pay for a WS4 too. But then again, I rather have 150 and use my own corded headphones if i ever need them (which is rarely). Today I detected the field and I can’t imagine I’m missing tones because everything is very clear and I’m not a person that digs the tiniest of whisp.
Today I went out for an hour on some grass/Weeds with the HF coil. Not sure why people like it that much. I had it before and alwyas felt like it found a lot less. My mate would find 18 coins for example, with his 13″ black coil and I’d have like 4. Plus he’d have the smallest silver coins and I didn’t have anything. Not lol :p So I got rid of all whites and x35 and kept my 28cm old version and I was very happy with it. One of the last times I got to go on a well known trampled field and I got an average of 1 target dug every 2 minutes. It’s amazing.
