I just got a Deus 2 WS6 with the 9" coil & WSA 2 headphones from Bart @ big boy hobbies. This WS6 with the 9" coil package is the lightest metal detector I ever swung. I can metal detect all day long with the WS6 & not get arm fatigue. My first good find was a nickel & it was about 9" down. That boosted my confidence that the deus WS6 can go deep. I did get fooled a couple of times with deep iron. But for the most part I think it dose a better job in iron than my Manticore.
