Went to on of our giant hay fields that have big patches of very heavy iron with my new Deus 2. After playing around with the reactivity, the targets started to pop a little. I found a 1802 draped bust cent about 10” down, scratchy 88-90 signal and up with it came 6-8 tiny iron nails, second I got a scratchy 93-95 signal, popped the plug and found a 4” square nail at around 8” ( deus 2 loves deep square nails) put the plug back, checked it and still had a bangin’ 95 signal, opened it up again and at around 8-10” was a 1804 draped bust cent. Needless to say that I’ve been over these spots several times with my equinox as has my buddy. This was only my 4th time out with the Deus 2 but so far, I like it!!!!! Three of us are road tripping to Virginia at the end of the month so we’ll see how it does on a battlefield.

Impressive results when you can pop a couple of coppers up with the iron. These are the feedback reports that I like, where a person can make an old friend produce even more.
Well done on recoveries and best of luck also on the road trip.
