Just like the original XP Deus, the DEUS II is one powerful and lightweight metal detector but you have to know how to fine tune the car to get the most out of it. I get asked a lot about these 3 settings: Reactivity, Silencer, and Discrimination. The big question I get is about reactivity. How much is too much? That answer really all depends on what you are hunting for and what your ground conditions are but in this video I will try to address when too much Reactivity may actually hurt you but when it might be beneficial to use a higher Reactivity.
