With all the talk about finding gold even I keep forgetting that the XP Deus is arguably the best coin and relic detector on the market today in Australia.
The last piece of the high frequency XP Deus and Version 4 is just about to be released, making the Deus the most versatile VLF detector available in Australia. But its always been a coin Killer!
NOTHING recovers faster, sorts through trash better or gives you more adjustability. You can use it as a “Turn-on-and-go” Machine for the easy $2 coin hunts or you can adjust it in an almost infinite amount of ways to really eek out every last target in an area.
The Deus has been designed to be super simple to use when you first get it, but it has enough toys in the box, that as your experience and detecting needs grow the Deus Grows with you.
The people I have seen getting the most out the Deus are quite often the new detectorist that has never detected before. The reason is they don’t have anything to forget from the last detector and they just learn the machine they have.
The biggest issue with Upgrading to deus from say a 705 (what I did) was that for a month I had to forget everything I been doing with the 705 as the deus was just a different beast altogether.
I think the biggest thing that really amazes people about the Deus is just it is so small and lightweight. The Control box is about the size of an Iphone and because all the actual detecting stuff is in the coil it can be made small and light.
We all have that Bigger is better complex in a lot of situations and when we see people using these machines that weigh 2-3 kg’s and are quite cumbersome we assume that we need a massive machine to get results.
Its just not the case, in 99% of situations I will back the XP deus to out perform any other VLF metal detector on the market today despite weighing about 800 grams and feeling like a kids toy.
A Toy it certainly is not but once you get your head around the XP deus you will hit areas with massive confidence and STOP worrying about what was missed, because with the right techniques you have a machine that has the capability to FIND IT ALL.
YES I am giving the XP Deus a massive plug here as in the last 12 months all the talk has been about XP deus on Gold and highly mineralised ground. It works by the way. I have even found myself looking for gold hunting locations rather than coin shooting ones.
But in the last week or so I have been out coin shooting again and have re-fallen in love the XP deus as a super capable coin and relic machine that has the ability to be taken to the goldfields as well.
I have re-fallen in love with coin shooting in general again and realised that with my 1500+ hours on the XP deus I am actually bloody good at it! I speak fluent DEUS and I know what a lot of the tones mean and can quite often name the target I am about to dig. Not all the time but way Over 50% I am spot on.
Thats because the Xp deus is very very good at identifying what type of metal you may dig up and once you know the machine it is almost too easy to go out to just about any park in Australia and pick up $20 or more off the ground.
I can then take the Deus out to the Historical sites and confidently hit ground looking for pre-dec coins and relics from the past.
Lastly as a patch cleaning tool in the gold fields it is just really easy to use and after you get the hang of it can easily stop you digging Iron and give you excellent ferrous/NON-Ferrous identification.
So if you’re looking to get into Detecting or if your looking at upgrading your current entry level machine then the XP deus needs to be on your radar.
I sincerely believe and so do many other’s that the XP Deus is going to be the last VLF metal detector you will buy. It is the top of the tree, the king of the heap and really there is nothing to upgrade too after buying a deus.
No Its not the cheapest, but the best rarely is. XP Owners are more often than not long term owners and many have had the machines for some years. Those that are new to the deus lose find envy very fast and stop thinking about what they missed as they are so confident the deus got it all.
Put the “What will I get next” question to bed once and for all, and go for the top of the tree with the XP deus.
Happy Hunting Folks.
