Ive had thin sectioned pieces of non-ferrous scrap coming in between 40 and 50 on the Deus.
 
I know air tests for depth dont mean a thing, but using air tests with some of my hammered on the Deus for target ID purposes was a bit of an eye opener, with small hammered coming in between 35 and 45 on occasion,  I dig anything over 35 and if I dig the occasional piece of Coke, then so be it, its better than wondering if Ive just ignored a hammered half penny or a cut half !  ;)

...not particularly, as far as I think the only real difference between the two machines, except the obvious cosmetic and technological things, is that the Deus gets deeper, so it would be a better choice for most ground conditions by that fact alone!

Can i also add the T2 is far superior to the deus when it comes to gold,the deus is pants on gold  ;)

Very useful post.  Thanks for the info guys. Great to get all that condensed experience.  I'm saving this one for future reference!

Yup I am the same Bob.  However although I would also like to save this one for future reference I don't know how to do that!  Maybe I should print it out.  I can recommend the Deus; I love mine.

...yes, on certain programmes like Deus Fast I agree, but if you change to GM Power or Goldmax (I think) , then gold comes through loud and clear if I remember correctly. For some reason Deus Fast just does not pick it up great in the soil!!

Just out of interest Derek what do you use on your ctx programme wise i.e 50 tone or 35 combined etc.
