The launch was delayed to January 7th 2022 with most suppliers operating a first-come, first-served basis.
This led to a chaotic attempt for people to try and acquire a Déus II.
One retailer announced before the launch that the only way to purchase a machine was online only as the shop was shut and not taking 'phone orders. Unfortunately, those that stuck to those rules missed out but those that didn't could order over the telephone.
The majority of the machines appear to have gone to YouTube influencers rather than experienced detectorists.
This is supported by the lack of the expected avalanche of finds that were expected, whether imaginary or factual.
There are far more images of Déus II boxes and machines than there are of the anticipated finds.
Looking at the forums, nothing has changed at all!
A couple of the team have decided to perhaps purchase a Déus II, not because it is percieved to find more, it's simply more robust and there may be an advantage with it being a multi-frequency machine.
There's no rush to buy a Déus II as the Déus One has proved to be the best machine to date for us.
Just as a reminder, this is what we've found with the Déus One.... Enjoy!
