  1. I have had a Garrett ACE 250 for several years and just bought a very slightly used Garrett AT Pro a week ago. A couple of times I did not get any sound when first turned on but after wiggling the coil cable it started giving tones again. On occasion it has suddenly started chattering with almost no movement and I have done a reset and it corrected the problem. My main issue right now is that if I bump the coil cable close to the connector I get a tone every time. I have removed and re-inserted the connector twice making sure it is fully inserted but still get the tones. I have made sure its not the connector itself. I don't have another coil for the AT Pro to swap out. I texted the previous owner to find out when he purchased it hoping it was less than the 24 month warranty that Garrett has. Wondering how strict Garrett is on fixing issues like this or replacing a coil with a bad cable if I was not the original purchaser. Any suggestions are appreciated.
  2. Hello everyone. I haven't really gotten out to use my detector since buying it last year spring time (Garrett AT Gold). I'm not sure exactly how to use it and would love some pointers or would be very happy to get with someone local and teach me some pointers. I am a GPAA member and I am thinking about going to the claim they have out by Rye Patch next Tuesday Dec 04. I have never been out to that area so any info on that would be appreciated as well. Thank you very much and have a great week.
  3. Now through March 31st you can buy the Garrett AT Pro with the smaller 5" x 8" DD coil instead of the normal stock 8.5" x 11" coil. The package is also at a lower price of $488 of course... and you get a free hat! While this is being billed as a holiday special the fact that it runs through March 31, 2019 means there is plenty of time to take advantage of this package deal. https://www.garrett.com/hobbysite/pdfs/garrett_dec_2018.pdf Garrett AT Pro Sport Special
  4. Are the Garrett AT series detectors (Pro, Gold and Max) that good? Based on youtube personalities, it looks like it. But after doing research on online message boards, it seems like they're "good, but there are other comparable or better options out there," a la the Equinox. How much of the prevalence of Garrett AT metal detectors on youtube is due to effective marketing and how much is due the AT metal detectors being that good? I'm not intending to start a flame war or anything as I eventually plan on upgrading my machine and I'm considering the AT Max, Equinox 800 or Fisher F75.
  5. Hey all, As for the Garrett AT Pro, does anyone else not like the fact that the unit doesn't have a "tone only" mode? Find that it's a deal breaker for you? Thoughts?

  7. Was looking at my AT Pro that I run with a big coil and trying to figure out if I could make a counter weight or not and looking under the armrest I discovered Garrett put a wire clip! After all these years I never noticed it. After giving up on the idea of a counter weight I hooked the headphone wire to the clip and discovered the wire had a nasty slice through it and was only held together by the copper shielding! Dug through my box of stuff I use for electronic repair I had a container of liquid electrical tape. Looks like I'm good to go. Close call as I plan to hit the beaches this weekend.
  8. I always hear how good the AT GOLD is in the iron wearing the 5x8 coil. My question is compared to what? I put it against 3 other detectors in this video on a very simple test.
  9. Decided to get me another AT Pro. Last hunt back I was out in a light drizzling misty rain with my metal detector wrapped in a walmart bag and decided I needed a wet weather detector. Did a review and I know its not the new darling around town but I remembered how well the Garrett coil performed for me in the past and decided to get another one. Looking forward to chatting about it later. HH Mike

  15. You have a NOX 800; why would you want an AT Pro, other than to just have one..? Curious, is all.. I have an AT Pro.. Really like it a lot.. It's a main machine of mine for where I live.. However, I bought it less than a year before the Equinox series was announced.. If I could have a do-over the day NOX was released I know which machine I would buy to have only one of the two and it wouldn't be an AT Pro.. Not that there's anything wrong with 'em, it's simply because they pale in comparison.. Sooo, it really is a curiosity to me why you want an ATP other than to just have it..? What function can it perform for you the E8 cannot..? This is not a cut or cut-down of any kind, I'd just really like to know / know your thoughts / reasoning..? Swamp

  17. For a "limited time only" (I could not find out what that means.... end of month maybe?) and at participating dealers.... ....purchase a Garrett AT Max and get a free wireless Pro-Pointer AT Z-Lynk. Garrett Promotions Page

  19. This is just a short video clip showing the AT Max in highly mineralized red dirt, on a "live dug" Civil War bullet. Settings were Custom (so that the machine saves the settings) but basically, Pro Zero mode with Iron Disc at 10. The search coil used is the CORS Strike 12" x 13" DD coil (same as NEL Tornado).

  20. I had the opportunity to detect an old summer camp and an old store cellar hole and was rewarded with some old relics and a v nickle and wheatie. The spoon piece was about a foot down.
