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.

Excalibur 800 dream machine.
Just so easy to use. I don't mind the weight that seems to bother others. Great depth, perfect pinpoint. The one and only problem I have had (and I assume everyone does), is pull tabs and other aluminum gives such a nice tone. I have been using this machine for about 3 years and am amazed by the sensitivity. Also with practice the tone variation lets me guess the target 80% of the time. So far it is maintenance free and I use it in fresh and salt and on the beach. A Classic!
