All look like copies of other well known models.  Just as expensive and why are they better other than Aussie made?

Great to see a small Aussie company giving it a go, I'd be tempted to purchase for that reason alone.  Trouble is my Predator tools are unlikely to break or wear out in my lifetime.

Specs seem Right? I know in the video I added a CM to the Cub and Snake as the tape was angled. Said 17 and should have said 16, But its there in Text so I didn't bother re-doing the whole video.
Other than that I'm pretty sure they are right???

I am not going to get in a $hit fight about what is better, sorry wrong thread if your looking for an argument.

What I am saying is why would you send your hard earned money overseas when we have quality digging tools right here in Australia?
But Like I said in the video, I believe these tools are AS GOOD as the imported ones and by buying one and using it your actually helping a fellow Australian Better his own circumstances.

I have spoken to George at predator and the Lady at Lesche and neither are interested in sending diggers here in quantity. They will fill the odd overseas order but not in bulk.
They simply don't have time for us here in Australia, Just like most of the brand names if I am honest.

I am simply trying to support Australian Industry (yes I import gear as well). I tried and failed to get the diggers from overseas Including the UK. Walked into lost treasures one day, bought a Tyger Snake on a whim and fell in love with it.

Just by Chance the guy that makes then dropped off some new stock that day and I thought he was a nice bloke.

So Good tool, made in Australia by a nice bloke and NO chance of getting access to the overseas brands It was just a no brainer to help him out?

Each to their own, it would be boring of there was just one brand anyway I think.

Snake ways 669 on my scales

Blade weighs 663

Take off the wrap and I'm pretty damn close.

Hope that helps.

Clegy

I'm 4 cm over on the Blade and that is my Mistake, I measured the case as well. Rookie! LOL

Sorry Clegy for sounding like I'm nit picking, just been burnt in the past with the buy Australian first policy.  Most consumers now just want something that is reliable, value for money and don't really care where it is from.

I was lucky enough to purchase one of Tyger's 1st prototype  of "the snake" about 2yrs ago.
A good unit, well welded and made.  Happy to show to any ACT hunters if they are interested.

So that, with my other lesche(predator) products, I'll be like Sambo :).

Great to see a small Aussie company giving it a go, I'd be tempted to purchase for that reason alone.  Trouble is my Predator tools are unlikely to break or wear out in my lifetime.

It's all good! My main concern was the poor bloke that makes these has seen this thread and I really felt bad as It turned negative instead of a positive thread about an Australian company that makes stuff that actually works.

I don't care about getting called out myself, I sell Deus and get called everyday on one form of communication or another. 

Appreciate the activity on the thread though and although I have a tendency to rush sometimes and make small errors in my typing etc. I try and represent my brands truly. As some people that have tried to buy a Deus can tell you, I wouldn't let them as it was the wrong machine for them.

I take pride in the fact I don't BS my customers and tell the truth, even when it means losing Business to competitors. I make mistakes, But I don't Lie.

Happy for you to bag my Typing and measuring Skills, But I will defend the product as I use it, Love it, and would rather see a bunch of Tygers in the field than any other predator.

SMASHED that PUN!

So if your looking for a good quality digger that does the job, is strong, reliable and great Value then the Tyger is it for my money.
It is just a bonus that it is also made by A Bloody Nice Bloke in Brisbane.

Happy Hunting All, 

Clegy

Hey Clegy...Must admit I do like the line-up you have here and while I do use a predator shovel find I want something longer.  I do like your shovel and the idea of supporting an Aussie doing something for our hobby, as we seem to have to buy good quality accessories overseas which is disappointing.  I think the prices are very competitive with the added clause of you get what you pay for.  Will be in touch shortly for that shovel.  Just have to sell me on the deus now, make it waterproof so I can take it into the salt water and I'll have one in the blink of an eye.

I just bought a detenix digger (not bad so far) and once that one is wore down I might have a go at yours.  I've wore down 3 Leshe hand diggers over the years.  The Garretts are not as good.

I didn't mean to come across as negative either.  I'm actually wrapt that there is a local manufacturer that is making, what certainly appears to be, quality items.  If and when I'm in the market for something I'll definitely be knocking on the door (great that they are a local Brissy company too :) ).

Hi Jack,

Ok the waterproof is Done on the deus, so give me a call when your ready. 5 M Rated. ;)


Just by complete accident the shovel will add ZERO to the postage because the Deus is so light and gets killed on the BS that is Volumetric shipping.

Do I hear a Digger/Deus combo pack coming along?

Thanks for the inspiration Jack.

Clegy.

Hi Clegy...Whats the model number of the waterproof deus. Thanks Jack

Any of them Jack, with the addition of the water kit.

The actual remote is not water resistant and needs to be housed to go in the water, the Ws4/Ws5 are water resistant but are not suited to underwater by themselves. Think raining more than swimming.

The water kit gives you a waterproof pouch (5m) a thin cable for clear signals, a set of 100% waterproof ear buds.

Most I know of where remote around the neck inside pouch. But I don't know of anyone diving with it. If thats the goal as much as I hate to say it Buy a CTX or Excal you'll have way more fun.

Deus is designed to be killer on the land and offer the PART TIME underwater and gold guys a reasonable chance of success. I cannot recommend Deus if water is your main hunting location. Just too risky IMHO.

Here is a video I made regarding Fitting Water Kit C that may explain better than my long posts can. LOL.

Mate I live a few hundred meters from the beach and it would be for diving around 2 - 3 meters in salt water.  I currently use an excal II and thought the deus would be a water/diving machine upgrade.  I also use a 3030 which I dont take past knee depth and a 2300 after the beaches have been done by tourists with cheap vlf machines.

Hopefully deus will bring out a totally waterproof machine.  Thanks

Please no more about the Deus (Doushe Bag;D had enough with the disappointment of the CTX thread :-X  
I'd be happy to give one for these diggers a Go . OZY made will always be fine by me as long as the price is fair and they hold up to the task at hand

Jack, In your position I would not recommend Deus in its current form.
The excal II is way better suited to being underwater as is the CTX.

Marty, sorry mate, but if people ask questions I need to respond.

The Tygers are flying all over the country and I'm sure the new users will post their thoughts once they get them in their hands.

Remember too there are some local stockists around, they are listed under the video in the first post, so you can walk in and be digging by lunchtime with a tyger.

Happy Hunting all, as usual any questions about Tyger diggers Just give me a call, the number us at the website.

I thought that but really that's the Hilt,
So I measured the part you actually dig with.

It is much wider at the hilt, but really the first 15 cm of the blade will probably get used 90% of the time.

So I made the decision to go with the "Widest part you actually dig with" and that is about 5.5 cm.

Hope that make sense.

Got a Tyger Blade 2 weeks ago and have used a few times now.
Feels good and substantial in the hand, better than the Garrett ever did.
The sheath dose work, making returning to the belt far easier.

Just a little bump for these awesome diggers, They are fast becoming one of the best selling products with excellent feedback from a lot of users.

The LAST Digging tool you will need to buy for a long long time.
Put a Tyger on your belt.

At the end of the day if you need to use anything more than a probe - you should not be detecting in a public park  ;)
In the past 10 yrs a probe is all I have used in parks and for the beach I use a US made scoop and a custom carbon fibre shaft to suit
On the gold fields I use the original MalleeBoy Pick that was made by Mike a very good Mate of mine before he past the rights onto a close knock off reproduction of this pick that is just not the same 
So  Probe , Scoop and pick is all you need  ;D OH and a good pin pointer that I use for all 3 applications 
Oh, and Clegy where the heck have you placed the Sov's within the forum I gave up after looking through every post and reply some 11 pages now and I have not found a single one , you said you wanted more forum traffic , this sure is one way of achieving this

On private land it full go and get the backhoe if needed  ;D in parks I feel no one should make a plug as it only makes us all look bad when its not done right
