I have been using the Deus I since 2011, I think. THen I got a used Deus II which I didn’t like and got rid of. Bought the old Deus back (well several setups and kept what I wanted). Now some used parts came along and my Deus II Lite is now again my weapon of choice. It should be better, right ?
I think maybe the fulltones is confusing because you get a high tone for something that isn’t the highest conductor (like a musket ball). Must realize now that there are even HIGHER tones for higher conductors and they make my ears hurt..
Now I’m waiting for a used WSA XL headphones so I ‘m no longer bothered by the cable of the headphones (attached to adapter of WS6 pod).
The Deus II finds small stuff, and sometimes I’m surprised by depth, but also often I feel it’s not going very deep when most of my finds are within 10cm. But on the other hand: I’m coming from a year of bad results anyway. Deus I or Deus II. I still want a Deus II so I can detect the beach without cable issues.
Got lucky and found someone to buy my Minelab Sovereign GT for my price and he really wanted this one, so that went very well. Pity to get rid of the old classic machine with the nicest sound, but 450 euro is too much to sit around the house when I already have a beach machine in the Deus II. I also sold everything else, like an Equinox 600 with carbon rod that got exchanged for a Deus with a French unit. Itt’s all gone, except a Deus I with 28cm coil and 22cm white coil. Both have their ‘superficial’ ugliness so I won’t be able to sell them for a decent price. Maybe I’ll sell the unit or ws5 headphones just to get as much cash back in my wallet as possible. I just don’t know what to do with all the money except to put it into bitcoin, with all the recession that’s coming :p Got myself food for us and our animals already, it’s going to go bad probably.. Or we’ll need it and won’t have enough maybe.
