It has been 3 months since I went to the beach and I was so desperate to try the new Deus. So last weekend I headed there and within two hours I had a new gold ring ! Un Believable ! There had been severe storm winds in the last weeks, plus the high tide and I had seen some had found more than before due to the sand being taken away. I put my Deus II on Beach Sens, full tones (which i can’t work with now somehow but on beach it was totally ok) and sensitivity on 99. I had A LOT of very small copper bits. Tried finding a gold/silver chain that way but nope. Lucky enough I had a few 1-2 euro coins. Some were even quite deep. Weird but not so much smaller money and lucky not a lot of older coins that I can’t use in the parking :p Oh well. The local parking meter spits out my beach money and I have to start over again every time until i use clean money. Gotta find a way to clean the coins.
THe Spring vacation just started and in combination with the sun finalyl coming out after months, a lot of people were on the beach and a lot of them asked me what I was finding.
Just when I saw the gold shining in the pile of sand, a couple passed and teh guy jokenly asked if i found ag old ring. I said ‘As A matter of Fact, yes’ and showed it to them.
The unbelievable Roll I’m on: Oct 2020: golden pendant July 2021: ring with glass Dec : wedding ring and hollow stamp ring Dec 31: pendant in the field.. Feb 2022: Stamp ring
I have been detecting since 2010 or so.. Only found gold in Montenegro beaches in 2014 and a broken Roman coin here in 2018. Two rings in a playground later on. Weird.. why is it all happening in the last years ?? Also, Why can’t we find much in the fields??
Yesteray I was on a semi-stublled field in another city. It was hell to figure out the new Deus. Then we moved to a more flat field and I put it in Mono on 25khz and reactivity 3. It worked like a charm (high freq and react always give a nice signal). I had a good hunt here and there with the basic program and some customization of it, but on other occasions it just seems to chatter or give false signals. I tried using Beach like I did on the actual beach last weekend. And also Mono. To no avail. Maybe I should stick to my mono/fast reactivity for a while. I always thought I just need the multifreq on the beach. Did some tests, several times even, and always got confused with results. No fun. Well can’t complain about my beach life though lol.
It looks better in real life lol. Someone looked it up and said it’s military brooch from 3rd century. Cool. Never thought I’d find something like this, cos i usually don’t even find the ordinary ones. Now I found an ordinary one just yesterday on a place that’s apparently also Roman, judging by the roof tiles and holes from other hunters.
Found some stuff lying next to the spot where you can park. I’ve been claiming they should put parking spots in the fields for us, because I hardly can ever park near a field and walking 10mins to do some tiresome hobby isn’t for me. So TADA, there it was: a concrete strip suitable for at least 2 vehicles. Coming back to the car, i saw a pigeon ring and huge flat coin lying which i took home. The coin turned out to be 2 sols of 150yr old from France. Almost totally gone, pity.
I have been wanting to scout new fields to get a bit more result in the silver/cool section. Yes, I know I had lots of gold and Roman and stuff around the NEw Year.. But then it slowed down big time. I got the new Deus II on top of it, and after 6 days I finally got rid of the feeling that it found near to nothing.
First, I turned it on and immediately installed my settings from my Deus I, based on Hot program. Way too much noise. After 2 days, I did some tests with silver/gold in polluted ground, slowed it down, turned the disc back to 7 instead of -6. Apparently the -6 disc isn’t helping, it’s masking the good target ! Although I didn’t feel like I was finding less with it on the old Deus lately from now on I won’t turn the disc to under zero.
Then I watched some British guy on youtube explaining all the settings in a 25-min long monologue, which took me DAYS to complete, because I just don’t have the attention span for it. So I started again, this time just with Program 1, trying to get the ground grab to work, which doesn’t work as usual, and there is no manual GB anymore :/ Still, the thing got quiet AND started finding deeper targets yesterday, FINALLY !! I was so depressed that I got my old deus out yesterday before I took the new one again. Maybe it’s because most fields are now so damn wet. THe air humidity is 93%. Everything is wet and cold. The last field I took on with the Deus II has been ploughed a while ago and seems a bit more manageable (flatter) and dryer, so maybe it really makes a lot of difference.
Still, I need to find more places to hang out because now we only have the green fields which are forbidden, and the roughly ploughed ones, where you can’t find much.
