    Pulltabfelix, when you get old(er), an extra unnecessary dig with the shovel can become problematic - it hurts! Arthritis stinks and every time you dig a hole, it's wearing out the joints even more. When I get my new machine, (soon) I don't expect to dig much trash at all. It will lengthen the time in the future I will be able to metal detect.

    For the love of god, please stop turning every thread into a cygnus commercial. We get it, its promising a lot. When you get it and use it, THEN tell us about it in your own threads.

    I hardly ever dig trash now with the Deus...I couldn't stand to fill up a bucket with garbage every time I go out. Happiness is an 18th century homesite a few hundred feet off the road that hasn't been around for over 200 years.

    I am new to this but I look at it this way. I think we all started this as a ďfunĒ hobby. If digging trash bothers you, stop digging it and find a target with different numbers and dig those. If trash doesnít bother you, dig it all. I see a bunch of complaints about relic hunters not liking the iron. Heck, I love finding bullets but strange pieces of old, rusted iron interest me as well.
    I donít like pull tabs, but if Iím looking for bullets, Iíll deal with them.
    Just my 2 cents worth

    It all sounds like a lot of Drama to me , digging treasure is synonymous with digging trash ! It goes with the territory. Yes , you can be more selective with your targets because of the information your machine provides , but when it comes right down to it , the more you avoid digging , the more you take the chance of leaving something behind . It just seems that simple to me ! There is always going to be a good target lying at just the right angle , next to something just close enough to give an iffy signal and we will have to take the chance of digging or not digging .

    I agree with you 100%. I have some now minor back issues and high arches issue with my right ankle that acts up after a while on a hunt and it is somewhat of a chore to dig a lot of holes. but then on the other side when relic hunting, those iffy signals are so tempting. So it basically limits my hunt length to about an hour and an half and I am ready to quit and hunt another day.

    I agree and you have to dig everything especially if itís a solid signal.

    I posted this once before. I was on a club dig. Place had been hit by 20 folks for two outings. This was the third, I had missed the first two. I had a "funny sounding" aluminum can signal on the Deus, well, it sounded "funny". The big aluminum almost always has a distinct "echo" to it. This sounded almost the same. Almost. It lacked some of the echo.

    There were a bunch of footprints on it and around it. It was a Rev War belt plate! The way the Deus is set up I almost never dig trash. I do dig some iron deliberately, and got a busted civil war curry comb Saturday, but knew it was iron before it came out of the ground. The one thing the Deus can get confused with is a civil war brass button and a shotgun base, as both are about the same size, weight, and density.

    And on another note, this winter has been very bad on the arthritis thing. I haven't dug much at all, and also because I can't get anyone off their couches to go with me and my gold coin and confederate buckle spot is THAWED at the moment.

    My hunt lasted 3 pitiful miserable hours on Saturday and my knees are still toast! And I fell down once and went boom on Saturday. Danged roots and vines!

    This would be game changer for some of us. Here where I live, getting 6" of depth max is the norm. I can bury a quarter at 10" and my Equinox won't even give me a peep. Do you have any more information on it?

    The deepest signal I ever got was 7' under ground with a standard VLF machine.







    A natural gas pipeline! Survey plots show it's 7' down there. I have to remind myself to tell guests where it is. A few folks have found silvers and minie balls (from two different time frames) on TOP of the pipeline! Place is deeply plowed and stuff gets moved around all the time.

    What settings,
    recovery speed to high can do that .
    iron bias to high can also do that .
    swing speed,
    coin angle.
    coin condition.
    swing directing.
    other items near by like iron.,
    There are many things that come into play.
    We’ve all gone over a good target and missed it.

    I feel your pain. 6" is really the effective max here on coins. Sure, I can hit bigger iron or cans deeper, but not the coins. The soil here is not my friend...
