Hello and welcome to the MDF OooO
How come you have so many different machines in such a short period of time ?

I honestly don't have a good answer for it. I started with a compadre, it is shallow seeking, bought a used silver sabre II with my finds,I thought I should upgrade to a Deleon. Then I thought I needed a ground balance machine, bought a T2 classic and a used CTX the same week. The CTX was local located, took it home before the T2 was delivered. Both are excellent machines. I kept reading about the XP deus, I found a new deus lite for sale at a good price so I bought it. The person who sold me the CTX has a deus , he will use his remote to install programs for my deus lite. I was actually looking at the Rutus Alter 71 or the Nokta Impact. I am currently selling my compadre and Deleon. That is a somewhat long winded boring story.It doesn't make much sense either but it the best answer I have. rl; Ivan

Hi Bibelot, Welcome to forum, you omit you have a lot to learn well in my opinion you are making it alot more harder for yourself by having a fresh detector on average every two months the ones you mention are all good detectors but you have to take time and listen to your machine and become a team, i use the deus lite at the moment but one of my all time favorites is my silver sabre switch and go i call it which i have had some great finds with,my advice to you would be to pick one detector bury a few coins, can pulls, bottle tops, nails etc at different depths in the garden to form a test bed and learn the different sounds they make (i dont do display numbers)
best of luck knotalot ::g
Hope none of the above advice will sour UK-USA special relationship :)) :))
;) if there is a cheap ctx 3030 for sale i am interested :)) :))

I will always keep my silver sabre II and T2 classic. Yes, the much to learn is from not having enough time behind the machines to know everything about them yet. As you stated. The history here is interesting but no where near as fascinating as the history you have.1847 is my oldest coin so far which isn't even a blip on the radar there. The Rutus Alter is gaining popularity here. There are no dealers here so we would have to order it from Detecnicks. The Hodograph is new to us, I've seen it on the Aka machines, the Alter 71 frequency settings is new...Thank you for the repsonses.

Welcome to the forum bibelot. That's a lot of detectors there and I'm a little envious! If I were you I would use the Deus for really difficult areas and the CTX for deep pasture land. Although saying that if you completely spend the next year out with one detector and REALLY get your ear trained what to listen for your finds rate will increase. Good luck on your choices and your journey.

Happy digging (don't buy any more detectors I think your good for the next 30 years) ;)

Hi, I am from Avoca, NY. I hunt parks, fair grounds, sport field perimeters., abandoned farm houses, old foundations where houses use to sit years ago. It is funny but one of my favorite finds is a 1992 ten pence coin. I also find a lot of Canadian pennies which have been phased out as well but you can turn the pennies back into circulation here yet if you choose to. I detect at the Steuben county fair ground which is in nearby Bath, NY. It is the longest continually running fair in the US. This will be 198th year running. There use to be two horse tracks on the same grounds prior to the fair grounds, so I'm able to find Queens plate shoe pieces and all sorts of odd bits and pieces that you wouldn't normally see elsewhere in my area. Thank you all for the warm welcome. I sold the Tesoro Compadre and have offers on the Deleon. I am looking forward to learning the XP Deus. My wife wondered why I bought another machine that is more expensive for accessory bits for it but it is what it is. :)) Ivan

Every once in a while I have to dig them to make sure they are as I think they are. Oh the irony when you dig the one on the right. =))

Ivan those are really cool ::g you will have some brilliant finds on those sites. The irony of the anti littering slogans always raises a smile B-)

I suppose you have to get through really modern stuff but you'll get a great mix of decades amongst everything you find? Please share some more pics, they are great to see ::g
