Intro –

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAYou know, the Eurotek Pro kind of frustrates me! No, no…not because it has any problems . …but, instead , because it performs so blasted well while being so inexpensive ! I mean, I have quite a few much higher priced detectors that can’t do what this little fella does. Sure, it doesn’t have a lot of the features found on high-enders like backlight, notches, etc. But what it does bring to the table is the best performance I’ve found in ferreting out non-ferrous targets that are surrounded by iron.

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.

Garrett Ace 250 New users guide

-Detectorstuff member Ian Pettigrew (AKA draaiorgel) has written up a great new users guide with tips and helpful information on the Garrett Ace 250! Many thanks to Ian for his contribution….


All about the Ace 250 for newbies.

The Ace 250 is an ideal beginner’s machine especially if you know absolutely nothing about metal detecting. (Just like me when I first started)

 

I had read on many MD forums about what a fabulous machine it was and
the price was right.

Garrett GTI 2500 Review by Eu_citizen

*Detectorstuff loves user submitted reviews!  Who better to give some advice and feedback than real life users who have plenty of hours behind the coil.  Read HERE for information on being a DetectorStuff review submitter!  Thanks Eu_citizen for another great review!

-Mark

Now when you break this thing out of it’s box… It looks impressive! Nice green colour, big display heavy and steadily built coils.

Everything looks good and so, now taking it into the field will tell if it’s good or not.

Fisher F70 Review

fisherf70

“The Heat!”

To put it bluntly, the Fisher F70 is THE HEAT! As a proud and happy owner of an F75, I caught myself thinking…”I bet the F70 will be a scaled down F75”. In some ways, I was right. A few less features than the F75, (and I LOVE the F75 trigger!…it should be illegal to build a metal detector without a trigger!) However, Fisher retained the most useful functions and made them very accessible to the user. There’s also a little something extra under the hood… more depth than the F75! Yep, you read that right! In my soil, coil-for-coil, the F70 is slightly deeper than the F75.

Speaking of coil-for-coil, if you already have an F75 you can swap coils back and forth. The new elliptical concentric coil for the F70 is great! Excellent design, construction and balance. However, slap the big F75 11” DD coil on the F70 and hang on! I’m talking SERIOUS depth here! Select the “slow” option in areas that will allow it (lengthens the sampling time on the target…if I understand it correctly) and you will be getting way, way down in the ground! (I picture moles, grubs and earthworms packing their bags and fleeing the radio waves in utter terror!) However, due to the lengthened response time, the odds of masking due to nearby trash are increased…but I love having the option to pick which way I want to hunt, depending upon site conditions.

Teknetics Delta 4000 Review

*Review based on prototype version…subject to change!*

(click on images to zoom)


The Teknetics T2 has developed quite a cult-like following since its release! With good reason…It is powerful, lightweight and innovative. It is chock full of useful features that appeal to advanced users in this wonderful hobby.

The Teknetics name has long been synonymous with performance…and that legacy is continued with the launch of the new Teknetics Delta 4000. Lead Engineer on the Delta is John Gardiner. He has had a hand in many recent metal detector releases, including the Fisher F75 and F70. He was backed up by Jorge A. Saad (see my Fisher F5 review for more on him) who wrote the core software code. The legendary Dave Johnson designed the hardware and is overall Lead Engineer for the Teknetics line of metal detectors.
