What customers say about "Key Specs"
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.
Garrett AT Gold Metal Detector
  • The 5x8 coil is the best for coins and small items, much better than the larger coil that comes with the AT pro.
  • It has a small coil on it, but so far I have had no problems finding deep coins at the park.
  • Coils are interchangeable and can be upgraded.
  • I like the smaller coil because I hunt brushy and trashy areas. Very sensitive detector, I've found coins as deep as 10", possibly 12".
  • I don't expect that size coil I thought it was bigger than what I got

What customers say about "Detection"
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.
Garrett AT Gold Metal Detector
  • I can now detect in the water, gold prospect and find targets deeper.. I am very happy with this machine.
  • I use this metal detector for general relic and coin detecting. I like the smaller coil because I hunt brushy and trashy areas.
  • So it's to his benefit if you buy the book, get excited about detecting and buy a Garrett metal detector.
  • It's good for coins and relics too. I'm going to try some dry beach detecting this weekend to see how it performs.
  • While there is some good information concerning general metal detecting I found the majority of the book giving praise to Mr. Garrett and really just a long sales brochure for Garrett detectors. Disappointed.

What customers say about "Features"
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.
Garrett AT Gold Metal Detector
  • You can simultaneously see signal strength, type metal and depth. Plus the sounds help differentiate the target.
  • However, it includes plenty of hype; it's not as easy as the author makes it sound.
  • Plus the sounds help differentiate the target. With a push of a button it pinpoints your target. I wish it had backlighting for dusk, dawn and night use though.
  • For most of the reviewers it really sounds like they have never done any electronic prospecting in there collective lifetimes!
  • This is the first detector I have owned that has depth display, and the first with "notch discrimination", as it has 3 different modes of operation
