Lets talk about Garrett metal detectors:
This metal detector is designed using lightweight materials making it convenient to use. It works perfectly well and like many other detectors you will have to dig trash here and there. This digging for trash will only come to an end once you fully learn and understand this product and how it works.
Already I am lucky to have found 3 pieces of silver and a 1987 Handmade Navajo Silver Bolo tie made by Willie Yazzie. The sweet part of it is researching and learning the history of your findings.
Shipping was quite so fast and the product was very perfect by design and performance. Batteries were included and the machine generally is light and appealing. The headphones are nice and comfortable. Generally my product is perfectly awesome, I just love it.
My product is very sensitive. It is also kind of hard to point if something is 2 inch or 8 inch or more. I think this is so since the ground has natural metals for instance I found a nail on a same spot. This coil seems to detect minerals around the coil and below it. This happens all time for instance one time it read 2 inches and when I dug I found nothing. I am new to this venture so I bet this happens even to the experts.
I also find the screw at the bottom of the coil weak and loose. I have to tighten it all the time but it usually loosens when I lay down the detector and when the coil moves. But all these are manageable.
To me this detector is not suited for everyone especially the impatient people who do not like reading manuals. This machine will work well for those who want to learn it first before using this product. This is my 8th metal detector I have owned and used. I am so proud of it and I recommend it to anyone willing to experience metal hunting on a new level.
The Garret AT Pro Metal Detector will take your research and hunt to the extremes. It is great for land lovers as well as under water surfaces of about 10 inches below. I have used it in both environs and recovered a lot jewelry hat people have dropped. It is informative and has a superb display. It has an iron audio feature that minimizes the amount of trash you dig. This helps to avoid digging deep for items like bottle caps, quarters etc.
It has the ability to switch from Standard to Pro. Standard mode is like the ACE series from Garrett. PRO mode goes deeper and provides a better audible ability to tell you what is down there. This product has such features like an adjustable volume on the stereo land headphones. It has a custom mode that saves your settings after switching off the machine. It is readily available at an affordable price. This product will make this venture a success in any location you visit.
Once you purchase this product it does not come with water proof headphones. Using the screen under lowlight is a problem as it also does not use a standard headphone. If they made it using rechargeable batteries it would have been great instead of the AA batteries they provide. Even though the price could have shot up a little bit but it would have been great. The Garret AT Pro Metal Detector is an amazing high performance product.
