Merry Christmas from Detector Stuff!

I hope Santa fills your stockings with any and all metal detecting goodies you want this year!

Also, it's my personal belief, that Jesus is the reason for the season...keep the kindness of nativity-scene1Christmas alive all year long.

1 Welcome to!


Thanks for visiting...since the launch of DetectorStuff I've worked to improve the hobby of metal detecting by seeking out interviews, metal detector reviews, interesting stories, etc.

Not to brag, or anything (okay...maybe a little!) this was one of the first sites on the Web to interview industry insiders and put their unique perspectives on the written page for hobby enthusiasts.  I've had conversations with legends at Fisher, White's, Detectorpro, Teknetics and more.  The "brains" behind some of the coolest detectors on the planet!

Drop by the forums at for discussions and fun.

Please enjoy the content of this site and feel free to drop me an email or message with ideas, suggestions or just to say hello.

Reviewing the Makro JeoHunter 3D Dual System

It is a fairly good guarantee that once you catch the treasure hunting fever there is no turning back. Those that start out with the basic models of metal detectors will soon be thinking of ways to move up in the world of detectors. Finding deep metals that yield large treasure caches is something that all enthusiasts dream about.

For those who are looking to search deeper it is imperative to select a deep seeking metal detector. If you are looking to begin searching for gold and other precious metals that are deeper than one-meter you will need a two box style metal detector.

One of the best models available in the two box metal detector series is the Makro Jeohunter 3D Dual System. This metal detector has outstanding metal discrimination and separates metals into four categories which are gold, non-ferrous, ferrous and steel. For the first time there is a metal detector that gives complete visual analysis of objects before having to dig. The Makro Jeohunter 3D Dual System makes it possible to find precious metals at extreme depths.


Minelab CTX 3030

Okay...Minelab has done it.  They've officially grabbed my attention with the new CTX 3030!  Waterproof, on-board GPS,  rugged and possibly more powerful than the legendary E-Trac?  or at least so it's been said...  I would love to write up a review on this beast if I can get my hands on one!  I've been talking with Minelab Marketing (USA) to see what we can work out.

...bunch of stuff packed with the CTX 3030 !

XP DEUS Metal Detector Review

XP DEUS is the World’s First Wireless Metal Detector. Why is this such a big deal? Read on, fellow metal detectorists!

It is the hottest metal detector in Europe and NOW the XP DEUS is available in North America.

There are SO MANY features that make the XP DEUS Wireless Metal Detector the most exceptional available, it’s difficult to list them in order of importance. Perhaps the most stand-out quality about this detector is its level of SIMPLICITY, while offering futuristic state-of-the-art functionality. Anyone can grab & go with this wireless metal detector and search for any type of treasure. From coins and relics, to gold prospecting and more, all you need is the XP DEUS—it’s the total package!


Review of the XP Deus coming soon!

A distributor is going to send us an in-house review of the Deus and it's features... very intriguing design.

Spotlight on new detectors.... Blisstool

This looks like the manual tweakers dream machine!  Lots and lots of pots!  One of my most enjoyable analog detectors was the relic-loving Nautilus DMC 2b.  A true depth monster that, when set up correctly, is very hard to beat for pulling brass and lead from extreme depths.


This new Blisstool LTC64X v3 seems to be redefining the notions of what a VLF detector can do. I haven't played with one yet, so everything is hearsay and speculation at this point...however, the videos are impressive!
