Here is a short video showing how good the Deus 13" coil and Full - Tone setting work in harmony, it shows how well the big coil deals with Iron.

Hi Graham
You need to key it in, here are my Hot and Sifter settings.

Hot
Load up the Deus fast program....Change
Discrimination.....between 0 and 5, if you have problems identifying differences between low tones use disc 5 and dig every repeatable tone
Tones....Full tones
Iron Vol.....0
Audio response....3-4
Here we have some big changes, at first don't be afraid to use a discrimination of 3 - 5 until you get used to the audio feedback.
*Discrimination notes : Disc 0 will accept all the ground noise as a baseline, this is good if you want to hear ground changes. Disc 1 will eliminate ground noise and only accept Iron as a baseline.

Sifter
Load up the HOT program and change :
Discrimination : 0
Sensitivity : 86
Audio Response : 4
TX Gain : 1
Ground Manual : 88

I think it means ground balance manually set at 88. I'm sure Gary will confirm mate.

Confirmed manual, don't use tracking or pumping there is so much Iron the machine can't see the ground to make a correct adjustment.
So play the safe option 88-90 manual which is fixed
