Wow.. . WOw.. . woW.. . wOW.. . WOW! Thar's gold in dem hills!
OK just this past Christmas of 2012 my wife bought me my very first detector. True I am a beginner. However I got out there with it (in 3ft of snow). And this may sound lame to you? But not to my neighbor, who lost their house keys!
I became a hero that day and was well rewarded with a "find" of some very delicious chocolate chips cookies! And Number 128526,
WOW what a find!
The AT-Pro is NOT a joke, it takes time to learn, so I suggest the following:
Read the instructions carefully several times
Locate some usage clips on u-tube
Get the app "treasureNet"
Join "TreasureNet" (cost nothing)
Make contact with people in your state on TreasureNet
Look for me on TreasureNet, they call me "EverestJumper"

AT pro amazing
After years of using high end detectors that were soleless machines well they bleep I dig always suffered with iron errors, then last year I had a look at the garrett ace 250 and thought what a sweet detector but then I noticed the garrett at pro and had to get one.
As soon as I got to the field I set the machine to basic coin hunting mode and before long found my first bell tone sound a small roman coin, very thin, came out the area was had a lot of trash builders bits of iron, so I changed to iron audio mode I no could hear all the iron and new the good targets from bad.
One interesting thing that happened to me that I have never had on any other detector was when I got a good signal I also got some iron audio noise, it was a mixed sound with both high and low readings on the meter, si after a bit of digging I found some nails, I was just about to fill the hole in when I spotted the shape of a coin in the soil, wow I have never seen a detector able to do that!
Summing this detector up its brill and can easily be set up in standard modes till you get use to it, you will do a lot of deep digging.
This machine will find thin hammered silver with ease, but not if you notch out foil best use the iron audio in all metal mode.
If your a beginner go for a ace 250 its a fab machine with a gr8 resale price when you are ready to upgrade.
The price of this machine is just right, if you thunk the xp deus is a rip off its a good machine but not at that price, if it was priced nearer to the AT pro I might have considered the deus but I could buy a iphone no contract and a at pro for a lot less than a deus.

After I found about 5 coins I could tell when I was hitting on a coin, a short high pitched tone, pennies were reading between 75-79 on the digital scale while dimes read between 81-85. Also the reading for a lot of scraps of what looked like tin. But the difference was if it was a long high pitched tone it was always junk whereas a short high pitched tone was a coin almost every time. I guess only time will tell if this is a good quality machine, but I have to say so far I am loving it.

Awesome detector my favorite by far!
Reviews it's not true. Heck the 3rd day out I found a lady's 10k diamond ring.
This detector hits harder on nickels and pull tabs than any machine I've ever owned and that equates to more rings. It's also weather proof and uses a 15 kHz frequency
Which makes it pretty sensitive to gold. It also works really well for coin hunting. Depth is really good too and can hunt beaches lakes and in rain too. Out of all the machines I've owned this ones my favorite by far.

Awesome machine my favorite yet
The best thing about it is it hits nickels really well in fact better than any other machine I've owned and I've owned a few in my time trust me.
That equates to more finds. It's weather proof and has good depth. So you can hunt beaches lakes and don't have to worry when it rains on your machine. It's an all around machine and a good value for all of its features. Thumbs up To Garrett.

At pro review
Second, When it locates one object, it is likely to find 5 others as you start digging. Then they all start disappearing.
I really wish I had bought a simpler, more expense product. I am a novice, but have spent a lot of time reading the instructions and using the unit.
I got burned. I would give it a zero rating, but that is not an option.

Would be here all day doing this review if I listed them all. The thing with the At Pro is this if you walk over it it will find it, just take your time to get use to the machine, for me its been top notch.
