The Deus – can it really be as good as they say? Anybody tried one? I’d really love to see an independent review or video on this one. This detector has really caught my attention, not just because of claims about its performance (although that certainly is a big factor), because it weighs less than 1 kilo (2.2lbs) and is wireless. The weight is a huge selling point for detectorists (like me) that have back problems. The Deus is made by the french company that gave us the Goldmaxx Power, a machine that has achieved legendary status among many detectorists.
