    Got the Nox 600 and it is ok but definitely not a Deus

    After two, two hour plus hunts with the 600 nox at my site, my right arm is shot. The Deus has spoiled me with it's weight and it's compact-ability. I basically hunted over my already hunted area and while I did find some more targets, I found nothing exciting. I managed to find a sliver of a clad quarter and that was pretty cool and a little bling jewelry but mostly I dug iron and other trash that I had avoided with the Deus. I finally dug a very corroded Memorial penny right before I quit today but I can't swear that I missed it with the Deus. I may not have swung over it at all with the Deus. The 600 is an awesome machine and I like the 50 tone setup. it will make a super good primary machine for someone wanting to step up from a lesser machine. it will be a back up machine for me and a primary water machine. I did dig a couple very small, smaller than 22 short brass that I believe to have been 22 CB caps that I somehow missed with the Deus but then again, I may not have actually swung over them. The heavy coil just really wore me out and I could see how it would make the shaft wobble problem several are complaining about worse. I have partial tears in both shoulders and suffered a torn right bicep late last year and I can feel it very much so right now. The 4.1 version with the LF coil or the HF coil are pretty good at sucking the good stuff out of the ground. yes, I will still play around with the 600 in order to be better with it but there is no way that it will ever take the place of my Deus. Who knows, Deus may step it up with a multi-freq coil as well and I think that the theory is awesome but until then, I will keep a plugging on. The wife picked up the 600 and immediately told me that she might would try it for a minute or two but that would be it. The Deus just has so many awesome features. The only real issue for me right now with the Deus would be getting the tones to where they are more definite or separated better. this is just something that I haven't ironed out in my head as how to tackle it in a manner that I understand. I like the sounds better with the 14kz but want to hunt more in the higher freqs. For the wife and I, Deus rules

    Yep. Even for Deus power users who love Equinox, I do not see anyone (me included) getting rid of their Deus (at least not the HF coils). Plus I think XP may have some tricks up their sleeve for those white coils in the future. I got the Equinox for all weather/water/beach hunting and it has not disappointed, it has also proven itself as a worthy relic and coin machine. But Deus HF beats it in weight/ergonomics, compact travel and grab n go form factor, low profile detecting (not wanting to bring attention to yourself), and super thick iron unmasking.

    I actually just added the Deus to my collection including the 600 Nox. Just started with it, but it does have more options than the Nox and I think I will like it a great deal.

    Hey Dirt,
    I'm in your wife's camp.
    I won't be buying a NOX anytime soon.
    My Deus has all and more than I need.
    I don't get to salt water beaches and for fresh water hunting I have a kit if I decide to go.
    All my other detectors just sit in a dark closet and collect dust.

    hunted two days with the Nox and was totally worn out. it is a very good machine but....today, I was able to hunt longer in the heat, even with the sore arm and found....silver X 2 with the HF coil at 54 kz . will post those finds later this evening when the wife can help me with the pics. I dug a lot of smaller stuff with the 54 kz that didn't hit as well with the lower freqs. I was pretty certain that I was digging trash but wanted to see the difference. I had been checking every hit with all three freqs before digging just to see because they hit higher at 54kz. I was getting pull rings that hit in mid to upper 80s but would drop way down in 14kz. However, I was hot and tired when I hit the silver, just dug two targets that turned out to be an eraser end and a pull tab. So I didn't check this signal with all three freqs. ended up with 2 silvers and a nickel after getting a piece of iron out 1st. The 54 kz nailed the targets no problem under roots at about 5 inches. At 54kz, the nickel, the last target in the hole, still rang up fairly high in the tone.

    I think most serious water hunters swing the Deus inland and the Ctx in the water... I added the NOX to hopefully replace the heavy CTX, but honesty the jury is still out on weather it can compete with ole faithful. I'll do a review once I have 100 hours.

    First time out on the beach with the Deus I found a silver ring. First time out with the 800 I found a 14k gold wedding band. So I’m happy with both detectors. I prefer the overall compact lightness of the Deus though as dirtlooter refers to.

    what settings did you use for the Deus, was the silver very deep? I see the Brits beach hunting with the Deus and they manage to find coins, gold and silver.

    Just bought the Deus about a month ago.4.1 version and after reading a lot, you're guys help (Calabash) , and lots of you tube it's starting to sink in. I really like the 2 screen option. Having a new machine like the Deus makes me more motivated to get new premissions and I'm sure the Nox is great too.

    The only reason I am keeping my deus right now is because of the weight . I got a virgin permission and decided to hit it with the nox for a week then the deus for a week .The deus was lighter to swing but the nox in my opinion blew it away . I could only find a few coins left with the deus I missed with the nox , other than that the deus was really not that helpful . I dug WAY more junk with the deus . For the life of me I can not get the hang of this iron buzz when approaching a bad target . Rust and bottle caps sound like good targets on the deus and I do not want to be fidgeting with should I did or not when I have limited time .

    With the nox I can move with confidence on a bad target right away , no second guessing .With the dues I found myself digging to china for rusty junk more than not . I am waiting for the six inch coil for the nox and if that evens out this nose heavy issue I think my dues will see a life of dusty shelf sitting . My mom comes to visit twice a year and she can only swing a deus as everything else is to heavy for her and that is the only reason I am keeping it at this point .

    Bottom line ....The nox is more user friendly for me anyway . I have pounded my yard with the deus for a year / season and with the nox I found 1902 - 1905 IHP 1902 dime and a 1847 silver spoon in my yard the first day I had the nox and I know for sure my deus missed those targets .
