Good machine no doubt, but again, it’s no deus .

Yes, I know that very well. The Deus I acknowledged as being a workhorse. However, for ME, the ORX makes a better fit. I do not rely on only one make and model in my Regular-Use Detector Team because there's no 'perfect' detector, and for ME, I am enjoying the ORX because it is providing me all the performance I want and need from it, it was reasonably affordable, and it lacks a lot of 'fluff' or added adjustment functions I can easily live without for where I hunt and what I need it to do. There are a lot of rifles out there to hunt with, but I don't need the most featured, largest caliber, highest cost make or model to handle what I need for my hunts. The same goes for selecting a four wheel drive off-road vehicle and many other items that could be compared.

Yes, the Deus is a fine detector. I have friends who have added one to their own detector arsenal. But I also know a couple who HAD a Deus but parted with it and switched to the ORX for similar reasons I like it. So, as long as folks like what they use and find good stuff with it and are satisfied .... I'll just be comfortable I have the excellent ORX.

We all have to like our personal choices.
