Detector of Choice When Traveling to England?
« on: October 09, 2017, 09:57:18 AM »

A question for those of you that have traveled to England for detecting.  It seems that the XP Deus is preferred over the CTX-3030.   Why is that?   :W):
Performance?
Lighter (for long detecting days)?
Travels easier?

Brian if you're going to UK you should talk to me about it.
Both machines are great in UK. Your listed items are all valid. The Deus is a good machine here in the USA it's a great machine in England. The ground is so neutral at least where I have been. It does travel much better. Here's the main thing. England hunting on a tour are very long days 10 plus hours is the norm. The minelab harness or an XP Deus are serious thoughts to consider. I have seen people hurt themselves or a 6 1/2 day hunt. The deus excels at small targets which there are lots of in the uk.

Well of course I was going to talk to you before I made plans  :015:  My brother in law and I were discussing why the preference of the deus and I really didn't know why.  Looking at a spring 2019 trip.
