The XP Deus from the US is an interesting detector for $1.5kUS

I was watching a YouTube video and noticed the detectorist was carrying the controls around in his pocket. He mentioned 'Deus' so I googled it

Gday karl , the XP Deus has been around for a few years now and are a French machine . They have proven to be a very good detector , light weight while strong and versatile with various coil options . One slight drawback to me is the coil has to contain a battery which adds coil weight and needs to be changed after a few years , It's epoxied in which makes it a bit of a chore . I reckon the Deus along with the Equinox would be the top dogs in Europe these days . I was going to buy the Deus myself a couple of years ago but the behavior of the Aust. importer put me off . If you do decide to buy one and are prepared to go through the learning curve i doubt you will be disappointed .

Yeah, lots of people swear by them and they have the advantage of lots of coil options which could be a good or bad thing depending on how much you want to spend!
