Default Deus or Etrac?

Getting another detector and have it narrowed down to the 2. I detect ball fields, parks and such. What one would be better for my type of hunting? I live in Minnesota with pretty good dirt, I I just got one of the new f75's but feel I may need a back up.

Since you have F75,,, Deus would be too redundant,,,get etrac.

Etrac will handle EMI better on average as well,,,so if you got into a bad place EMI wise,,while using F75,,, pull out etrac and kill it.

Since you already have an f75 I'd go for the Etrac.

Thanks, I am leaning to the etrac more I guess. Maybe a second f75? Since it's so good.

For the type of hunting you do and E Trac is the choice I would make.

The Minelabs are silver killers. Deus looks interesting but I know the Etrac will kill silver.

You don't need a Etrac if you still have the Explorer XS listed in your signature...

I also have a f75ltd2,,and I got to say those minelab aren't made to back anything up,They usually take center stage.By seeing what you already have Id say your not gonna find more with another machine.I Agree with captain silvers post

The XS is getting old and cranky. I was thinking about getting another XS if I can find a really nice one, maybe even two, but nice ones are hard to come by.
