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.

Headhunter Wader
Well after 30 years of water detecting I guess i can express my opinion of the Detector Pro wader, The detector is based on a great idea, light weight and simple, unfortunatly it is so poorly manufactured you may not get a chance to try it, as i opened the box i noticed the cross threaded coil cable attached to the coil, then the waterproofing??? can you say snap tight? Thats right snap your battery in the headphone case it's water proof-NOT!, oh ya, then the depth, 5 inches air test on a coin was the best it would do, after speaking to others i thought maybe i had a faulty one, so I contacted the factory, They were the rudest people i have ever spoke too!, told me it was my problem! nice thing to say about a detector less than one month old! needless to say I sold it and swore never again on Detector pro, any other brand or I will sift sand with a minnow net at the beach, before i buy another Detector pro product.
