Hey you Farty  :)

I'm still with the old Deeptech which like yours is basic but works fine.

Not sure if there's any great advances in technology but there's probably plenty of new stuff out there.

I'll be back out probably around September as I prefer digging over the winter when there's not much else to do

Hope you are keeping well matey 👍

If you are looking for something different, try one of the new multifrequency units. They have some definite advantages over the single frequency machnes.

Hey Farty, good to hear from you.  Still have a GM 1+UK and don't think I would ever part with it. 
The Deus comes out the most because it's so light, but I had a barren day once when my mate with a GM1+UK had several nice bits, and as you know, it's swings and roundabouts whether you have a newer machine or an old favourite.

I still think that learning and understanding a machine is more important.

Good luck if you do decide to get a new one and get back on the fields, ergonomically most of the new ones now are very good indeed.

The Rutus Versa is about to hit the market and is definitely worth a look.
It’s multi frequency has an id hodograph light weight,rechargeable,2 coils,telescopic and at around £800 it’s well priced.

The Alter 71 was a very good machine performance wise, just let down by weight and dodgy wireless headphone system, big clunky control box and no rechargeable battery.

The Versa looks to have addressed that, the Rutus hodograph is one of the best visual displays, very accurate. Will be interesting to se how their multifrequency platform performs

I think Rutus have the brains to make very good detectors, and they already have proved that.
I would love to see them get more financial backing.

Re: New detectors MS-2 headset.

Hi Everyone.
Just wondering if anyone can help … Well here goes I’ve been on everything on the internet and YouTube and forums but can’t seem to get help. I have a Garrett AT PRO and a set of MS-2 headphones the 2 pin type not the plug type, anyway my wires have come out on the wired side only 2 left on. I need them to detect this is my only hobby after a stroke, which has left me hard of hearing so I need my headset . If anyone has pictures or a diagram of where the wires should go please help . I can’t be the only person on the planet with a set of MS2. :'(
