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 . Can't have everything. Different programs will bring old sites back to life!
