Is XP Deus II the perfect balance?

Of those in the field of SMF, the Deus 2 is my most anticipated.

To me, Garrett joined the SMF ranks with their Apex which is a quality detector capable of Salt water beach hunting with a detector sporting great ergonomics. It doesn’t match the multi-iq of Minelab, but they have a viable option at an entry level price.

Nokta has just introduced their Legend which appears intended to give you an equinox built by Nokta / Nokta engineering at a very reasonable price point $300 below what Minelab is asking for their detector.

Fisher has discontinued their CZ platform and apparently removed themselves for the SMF field altogether with no replacement in view. Go figure.

XP has tipped their hand to a new Deus, the Deus 2, which has their Fast multi frequency FMF technology (take that multi-IQ) in a very light package capable of much greater depths in water environs. Comes at a price though. You can buy 3 Apex’s or one Deus 2. I have an Equinox and a Deus, a great one two punch for most any site. I’m really curious about this new D2 and how it will perform in the field.

Also curious how Nokta is going to fare with their first attempt at SMF.
