I still get the notice that it will be delivered by the end of the day 3/16 (yesterday) but I also see that it is still in transit and not out for delivery. I am thinking Monday at the earliest. I was asked to fill out a brief survey by UPS.com and I let them know what I thought of their notification process.

I got the same notice from USPS and their tracking is laughable. So i bet it will show up today or monday.
UPS updated the delivery to the end of day 3/19. Me and three of my buddies can't wait to try it out. We have a new site that has already given up some eagle buttons and Indian heads. 50+ acres so I don't think it will give out too soon.

Well give me a holler when it comes in and I’ll shoot you three programs that will cover about all you’ll need for relics. ATW can probably give you tips on the coin end. Again congrats!

Now the fun begins. I look forward to seeing pic's of some CW saves and hearing of your adventures with the Deus. Although, that Confetrit' officers button will be tough to top. Best of Luck to you with some Great Finds.

I can tell you right now that this thing is going to take some getting used to. I took it to a new site yesterday but didn't find much. The best find was a small watch winder. The rest was just scraps and shot shell bases. But, the wind was blowing 30 mph with gusts over 40 and there was nothing but open fields around me. Several times I knelt down with my back to the wind and shielded the Deus with my body.

Sorry I'm late to the game - I hate missing a discussion on the Deus! Had mine for a couple years now and I use it exclusively except for water and beach. The programming can be intimidating but you'll find ones you like. They are actually very easy to adjust and change on the fly - only takes a few seconds. The weight and balance are sooo sweet, and the cordless headphones make it so nice when you set it down to dig. I went with the 11" coil and sometimes I wish I had the 9". I can't dig that deep anyway :unsure::ROFLMAO:. Can't have everything. Different programs will bring old sites back to life!

I ordered mine with the 9" coil because I hunt some heavily wooded sites and the 9 would be easier to get into some of the tight spots. But, when it came it had the 11" coil in the box. I called the dealer and he said that mine was the second order that week that the shipper had messed up.
He put me in touch with the shipper and I was given two options. One, they would send me a return label and I could ship the 11 back. When they got it they would ship me the 9. The second option was they would sell me a 9" at their cost which was almost 50% off retail. Since I had already planned to get the 11 in a couple months I chose option 2 and I am glad I did. The 11 is a killer in open fields and only weights .2ozs more than the 9.
While I am still learning the Deus I am digging very small targets at 10-12"s. And, I can swing this machine all day with out tiring. My legs give out before my arms and shoulders do. So, I take a short break and get back at it.
