RUTUS Metal Detectors have a reputation for strong target separation and depth. Their latest offering is the Versa, but unfortunately there are no vendors in the USA. However, the rest of the world will tell you about their amazing capabilities. I reached out to RUTUS a while back to see if I could find out a bit more about their company. They were very pleasant to deal with and even the language barrier didn’t stop us from putting something together here!

RUTUS is located in Poland. Check out their website here

Check out their latest, the Versa, HERE

Rutus Metal Detectors agreed to answer a few questions for us here at Detectorstuff.

Q. If you had to pick one or two strong points of your metal detectors vs. other brands, what would it be?

A. RUTUS detectors are created by an experienced metal detectorist not by an engineer from big company. We keep very close contact with our customers to help them…and we listen to their comments and requests.

A. Yes, we hope that it will be possible in the future.

Q. The Versa is your latest detector and is making waves in the hobby world!  What makes it unique?

A. Dual mode – fusion of motion and non motion modes gives more information about find – it’s like having both eyes open while searching.

A. Top secret 🙂
