Most helpful review for Garrett AT MAX

At max
Love this machine. First outing with this second dig a gold ring 10in. Second outing gold ring 5in. I use pro-zero, a 8x5x11 in coil. Ground conditions varied from moist to dry. Sensitivity setting high. Light weight. In my opinion this is the best out of the At series, using the others from experience of my own. Good investment for the hobby.

Most helpful review for Whites Beach Hunter ID

Whites Beach Hunter ID
I own/have owned several top of the line water detectors and am liking White's Beach Hunter ID more each day! While it is not quite as stable as others, I tend to find things with it! It seems to have lots of sensitivity. So running the sensitivity too high is a mistake at times. I have found dimes up to 11 inches! I think the 9.5" coil is just right. However it should be a weighted spider coil design for better water hunting. The headphones are top quality and comfortable. The detector is well balanced and feels light.

I do not like the all metal/disc/reset toggle switch as it pops out of all metal at the slightest touch. White's confirmed that this is the way they are. Well, I say choose a better switch White's!!! I also do not like the battery closure device... a thin rubber O-ring that tears. I think White's can do better than that!
Best of all I love the light and tone I.D. All of the gold rings I have found give the same nice medium tone and a yellow light. Each time I get a solid medium tone and yellow light while hunting, I get excited and start seeing gold! So I guess this detector excites me and makes detecting fun!

I also like its bright yellow cheerful color. Somehow it makes me feel better! Perhaps it reminds me of gold?! Just dig all those yellow and blue signals... some gold rings close to the coil give a blue light/high tone. If you want one, buy it! Good Hunting!
