What is the advantage of this Garrett 1140680 AT Gold Metal Detector?
The AT Gold metal detector was designed to find tiny gold nuggets in the most challenging prospecting environments, including shallow fresh water hunting. The AT Gold operates at a high frequency optimized for gold prospecting and includes a True All Metal Mode. The All Metal Mode is preferred for prospecting because it provides the greatest possible depth and sensitivity. It also provides a continuous audio response to allow the operator to hear the subtle detection signals produced by faint targets. The AT Gold is a Motion All Metal detector, meaning that slight motion of the search coil is required to maintain detection, although static detection of targets can be achieved while in Pinpoint mode.
Customer reviewsBuy this machine unless you want to use in ocean.
I did a lot of research on these machines and read a lot of user reviews before I bought mine last month. I have used several metal detectors over the years, but never owned one myself and I would consider myself a novice detector. As such, I wanted a machine with an easy learning curve, but all the bells and whistles of a professional machine. I settled on the AT Gold because I live too far from the ocean to need a salt water machine and I am more likely to take my machine into the California foothills and nugget hunt. It has a small coil on it, but so far I have had no problems finding deep coins at the park. I love that the machine is waterproof up to 10 feet. The stock headphones however are not waterproof, FYI - those cost about 100.
