Yer the deus will only pick up curtains if they still have the little lead bits that weigh them down .But still one of the best coin and relic machines on the market today.

No pain No gain..

There's no competition between the SDC and the Deus. At the end of the day the Deus as good as it is and it is a great machine. It's still a VLF. The SDC will beat it hands down on Gold. argh

Oh Well!...It's not the end of the world.....That'll probably happen tomorrow!

Both excellent machines,
If your targeting primarily gold then the SDC would win everyday in most scenarios.
The Deus is great in a trash patch or for doing clean up work before you harness up with the PI Machine.

One Advantage of the deus is its also a killer coin machine and can be used for coins and relics between gold trips.

The SDC also slays the wetsand at the beach if your into that sort of hunting.

Its a matter of deciding what machine will suit you most of the time and go that way. I'd guess having the ACE, there is a coin hunter in there somewhere. LOL

Happy hunting.
