What customers say about "Key Specs"
Garrett AT Max Metal Detector
  • The metal disc is great and is easy to tell most metal junk like nails, and even most metal bottle caps from a coin.
  • Single freq VLF detectors like the Garrett AT series just don't work well in salt water like pulse and multi-frequency detectors do.
  • It's my first metal detector and I like it a lot. I already found a gold ring in my own yard.
  • Bought this as an early Christmas present for myself. I am giving it a 5* rating despite the fact that I have yet to uncover any hidden treasures and strike it rich
  • Great metal detector but dont waste your money my at pro will go just as deep
Garrett AT Pro Metal Detector
  • After taking it on a beach trip and watching the Garrett how to videos online I started finding some good stuff on the beach. $3.88 in various coins...and a 14k gold ring with 8 small diamonds!!!
  • I like this machine alot, it's a big upgrade from my old one. Found my first coin spill the other day.
  • Very Nice. I consistently dig way more GOOD stuff than any other person I've hunted with. Very happy with it.
  • This detector is great like advertised. I have ran around 100 hours with it and found several coins, relics, and trash
  • Mine has issue with coil. Garret sent me a new coil but it didnt fix the problem. I bought a smaller coil that works fine.

What customers say about "Detection"
Garrett AT Max Metal Detector
  • Sensitivity is definitely improved, you'll find more goodies in hunted out areas.
  • FINALLY, an all metal mode, this is where the Max really shines. If you're upgrading from the Pro, keep in mind the Max has only Pro tones.
  • Seems to go much deeper than my Ace 300 and not as much junk.
  • Without All Metal Mode, you basically have an AT Pro - or a hybrid of the Pro and the AT Gold - with a few new whizzbangs.
Garrett AT Pro Metal Detector
  • This detector works great! Was able to find lost survey pins as well as a number of other objects like coins and jewelry.
  • Very pleased with this metal detector, we live in FLORIDA so we go hunting on the beaches often. With the automatic ground balance this is a superior tool for the job!
  • Saltwater took a bit of getting used to, but ended up with a gold ring and more than 70 coins in a single day!
  • This is perfect for beginners who are curious/ interested in metal detecting, it is not expensive and the screen shows how deep the object is, and what it is.
  • The depth is fantastic even on standard mode and the discriminator although not entirely foolproof is a lot better as I don't have to waste a lot of time digging for junk.

What customers say about "Features"
Garrett AT Max Metal Detector
  • The wireless headphones are a big improvement over the AT Pro. The upgraded grip is nice, but I didn't mind the foam grip on the Pro.
  • Backlight, volume control, wireless headphone. All very nice features.
  • Another great product from Garrett. Love the cordless zlink no more fighting the cord or taking headphones off every time I dig.
  • Lack of tone differentiation in All Metal Mode
  • Goes through batteries faster - likely due to the backlight feature, and possibly the wireless
Garrett AT Pro Metal Detector
  • Easy learning curve to use this detector.
  • Excellent detector. Seller was very helpful with a small issue I had with an accessory.
  • Found a WWII button first time out! Very accurate
  • The reading it gives from 0-100 is extremely inaccurate ( and yes ive bought new coils and tried different sizes ).
  • I love the pinpointing feature and the ability to see and "hear" what's in the ground. This is one of the best values in metal detectors!
  • My only complaint is that the screen does not have a back-light.
