Most helpful review for Garrett ATX

ATX looking for gold
I was in Arizona in Jan. 2014 picked a new ATX from Arizona Outback with a days training. I also have a AT Gold, I was able to find 4.5 grams of gold over a weeks time. ATX was easy to use easy to adjust. The coil was standard double D, ground was very dry, hard and most finds we're 8 to 10 inches. Really like the ATX.

1000+ nuggetts and counting!
Lets be honest, nothing will touch the minelab GP range of detectors for depth or sensitivity in any ground,for any target! Yes they cost a lot and are heavy and cumbersome and discrimination is not much good at all ,BUT! after 25 years of detecting coins and gold, and testing every make old and new ( except c-scope, never had one!)you never cease to be amazed at the power of this machine! i have been cleaning out an old spot for coins with my gt sovereign, not a lot of trash, but sandy soil and very deep coins. found about 25 "keepers" from 1880-1946 down to about 10" deep. Penny's, halfpenny's,1 3d, the odd sixpence some nice old buttons etc . then tried my GP 2200v2 and it was like no one had ever been there!! found over 30 more coins! some 20" yes 20" deep, and all the tiny silver 3 pence coins were at 10"-12" well out of range of the gt sovereign. and a small 1860's police button at near 2 feet!! with a 18" coiltek mono coil. go to an old coin spot with a gp detector and IF there isn't too much rubbish (and the soil is soft enough to allow coins to sink that far, or old enough!) you will be amazed at how deep you can get coins. and as far as gold goes. why would you even try to use another detector?? 5" deep on .4 of a gram and my mate got a 46oz nugget at 2.5 feet!( took 12hrs to dig in rock hard ground and 37deg heat!! PS try a GP on the beach with an 18" mono coil... but take a shovel!!
