Do Nexus detectors go deeper?

Don Bowers in Middletown, Pa. - best

I recently purchased a Nexus Credo mostly because I was curious to see how a "full resonance" detector compared to other brands I have used. Besides the Credo DDM, the Credo comes in two revisions. The older version, which I have, does not have "turbo mode" or "stabilized multi tone", which for me is not an issue.
To start with, I find that the minimum performance standards listed on the Nexus website basically hold true for this detector, even in real ground conditions. With that being said, I will tell you that depth is determined by coil size and ground conditions and that is no exception with this detector! My ground conditions rob all my detectors of nearly half of their depth capabilities and it's most apparent in disc modes.
Most notably this detector is advertised as non motion with a fast auto-tune. It makes the detector behave "similar" to a motion type detector. Also, disc mode does not have a sharp break point between accepted and rejected like some other detectors I have used, but is adequate. Lastly, this detector goes amazingly deep in all metal mode. I find myself relic hunting in all metal mode and switching to disk mode often to check things more carefully.
