Everyone has these things (Garrett professional pointer AT- Garrett carrots), and everyone likes them-a lot of people like them. The white Bullseye TRX beat it in range / depth (and price) and was the carrot's most valuable competitor (as far as I know). I will leave a complete comment to others (there are many) and comment on something I have never seen discussed a lot-although it may appear in Amazon reviews, Youtube, and so on. Garrett Pro-Pointer AT is sensitive along the length of its probe (up to and over 4 "marks), and you'll see on YouTube that this sensitive" wand "can be scanned horizontally to measure the dirt pile, search the side of a deep hole vertically, or look horizontally for shallow targets on the surface. This is useful, but it is not evenly sensitive along its length. Garrett even points out in the manual that the maximum sensitivity to small targets is obtained above the tip and from the side. For maximum pinpoint accuracy, try to test how it responds to typical planar targets (coins, rings, zippers, etc.), depending on their direction. I'll let you experiment and feel it, but here's an example of what I'm talking about: consider putting Pro-Pointer AT on its side and sweeping over its surface, looking for a shallow coin. Most coins are buried flat, so the coins will face the side of the tip of the needle. You'll find a sensitive dumbbell in it.

This is our first metal detector. We have done four of the five times, a total of about eight hours. We tried all-metal mode and automatic notch mode. The automatic cut mode helps to eliminate small iron pieces such as nails and saves a lot of mining work. We use it especially when looking for money. Many metal detectors have a great function, and that is three tones. In our search, the high tone is "good", so we ignore the low tone. We are looking for a very old home, where there are ancient rusty nails everywhere. The treble led us to a brass faucet, two flat canned tuna, some interesting (but unrecognizable pieces of metal), some huge bolts, an old 30 caliber rifle shell, some old drains, and so on. Our mode of operation goes like this. The father (the meticulous one) looks for it, the mother (the capable one) digs it with a big shovel, and the children use the tip of the needle to find the treasure. If we didn't have a pointer, the whole comment would be different! Old things look like dirt. The pointer buzzes when it touches the metal, so the children will pass the wand through the soil in the shovel until we hear the hum. This is very exciting! One comment criticized the suitcase because you had to disassemble the metal detector. I don't agree with them. All you have to do is press a button on the axis to separate them. Then unplug the coil wire from the electronic box. Put the two items in the suitcase and zip them up. No problem. I like it. It protects Devi..

I love this thing! Just dumped our garage (dirt floor for the past 13 years (country life). The crew left all their trendy forms of nails scattered everywhere, plus a pile of concrete powder, whatever it was, mixed with slender Re-bar-like wire. It's not cool. Earlier in history-we had a long swing drive (1 mile +), when we built this place and built the drive in this place, we thought it would be "frugal" to use broken concrete as the drive rock. I strongly urge everyone never to do so. More than 20 years later, we still occasionally find steel fragments on the road. No lies-that * sucks and cost our dealers' wages to fix all those leaky tires. Then why don't we want to buy a metal detector? Because we're stupid. So, um. We spent the first night after the downpour until dark, trying to find nails and collecting about 25. The next day, I bought this and let it spend the night, just before the crew came back to finish it (about 10 more were found). It can be used out of the box. Open it, and we'll go. I'm glad we got this. Saved us another swamp with flat tires. Its effect is amazing. This was our first metal detector and I soon learned that Garrett was a top brand. I'm not disappointed. This thing is very accurate. After the game, everyone said, did, and discovered something from more than a decade ago (rubbish from the original buildings in 1996 / 97). I have so.

This is my first metal detector, which can be said to be my favorite. As the name of the object implies, the metal detector is incredibly accurate when looking for coins underground. Distinguishing settings make it easy to filter nails and pull labels, so you can search only for coins. The range of sensitivity level is quite wide and can deal with a variety of different types of surface mineralization. Precise positioning is much better than my mother's Garrett 1350, because with this detector, you only need to press the precise button once, and it will remain in precise mode until you press it again to return to normal operation. The small plastic plug is plugged into the right side of the detector and can be pulled out with a little twist. You can place the headset, and it may be important to note that you need an adapter to fit the headset correctly into the device. I was surprised when I opened the box and found a treasure guide, 25 best kept secrets, a warranty card to fill in and mailed, and a catalogue of metal detectors and accessories. Detector's money and everything you get in your bag is worth it. It would be a great gift or personal use of any age. The assembly is very simple and shows how to do it in a short manual that comes with the detector.

It is used to accurately locate the detected metal (target) buried in the ground, that is, the required coins or other detectable items (nails, pull rings, foil). I bought a kumon$39 dollar pointer to start, although a good price point, Garrett professional pointer II is "live" with minimal errors and a larger range. I used several detectors, for example, Garrett ACE200,Tesoro compadre,Bounty Hunter Lonestar Pro. You must use all your tools to "get the feeling of testing". I visited my local park again (early morning) and found several $misc. Coins. I identified the zipper / bottle cap and "opened" only the iron. The tip pointer (Garrett) is very accurate-about 3 inches + or more, pointing directly to the coin. When you dig out some soil, sand, I put it on my side and spread it on the soil / sand. It beeps when it finds something, vibrates / pulses when it approaches, and then produces a steady tone above the target. (Kuman is good as an entry-level pointer-but you'll soon get better.) My only criticism is that it's black, and it's hard to see if you drop it, not optically yellow or orange like a waterproof Garret model. It has a "lost" function, and if it is turned on for a period of time, it beeps every few seconds (but the tone is not loud). Go, go! In addition, I took my Tesoro back to my backyard and pulled out about 12 old nails buried in the yard-probably added to the house in the late 1970s. There are no coins, but it's good, just like on the beach, throw away the trash. I'm sorry.

Wow, light, doesn’t tire the arm, easy swing, and fast. Read the manual, if you have used others don’t think you know it all.. watched You Tube videos of comparisons to others and demonstrators did not real good results. I read my manual and discovers why. The Fisher F75 is very accurate and reads dimes to 18 inches in good soil, BUT you have to swing wide and fast. Don’t hover over a target in indecision. Swing shoulder wide, be aggressive, trust the machine. It can handle its circuitry is made tor this. You will be amazed at the ground you will cover especially if you set the F75 properly. It set to work out of the box for newbies. Experienced detectorists, without F75 experience, will find they need to change their search methods as described in the owners manual. Take the time to read it, you will be pleasantly surprised. This thing is very light and easy to swing. My 119 pound 5’2” wife liked it so much I had to buy another one for me. At 73, after forty years of marriage we have a new hobby that gets us good excerxise, fresh air and fun times together.

I have used this metal detector for months before reviewing. The best way to get your feet wet and know what you might be digging up is to dig up everything that sets the metal detector off. Steer clear of all metal mode most of the time especially in trashy areas and use all metal to help pinpoint your discriminated object. Set both dials to 50% as suggested in the manual. Use either discriminating mode and you will find absolutely find stuff. Digging up items is the only way that you will know and anticipate what that may be. I found it does extremely well at locating silver, brass and copper coins bullets and steel. The battery life is very good, you'll get a lot of use before you pull out a set of new battery's. I started with a vintage White Coinmaster detector it was so much harder to use and the battery life sucked. These newer models even the cheaper ones such as this put that old thing to pasture. You can spend buckets of money on something better, for the price, I'm extremely happy and I'm not shopping around when this is doing so well.

The second time I bought this metal detector. I sold the first one for about the original price. Equipped with bags, headphones and waterproof search coils. You can't exceed the price. I prefer analog detectors because I hear that LED lights tend to go out a few years later. I tested it with gold, silver, steel, slag, etc., and it registered everything correctly. You have to get used to sensitivity settings, but overall, this metal detector is good for anyone who wants to start. One level higher than a child detector and one level lower than a professional model. It's perfect for my weekend walk on the beach.

Like it now, maybe upgrade to love it later. I'm also learning something about dials and buttons, and how to use it correctly to find things. I found my first piece of metal today. Although it is a chain fence, it is something. It feels strong enough, easy to adjust, and light in weight, so you can do a few hours of testing. Headphones don't fit on the ear, but they work well, and the best thing is that there is a volume adjustment because the device beeps quite loudly. It also comes with a shovel / pick, which has been used in some ways and is very sturdy. On the whole, we are very satisfied with the purchase and look forward to finding large amounts of gold and silver. Or soda cans.

Or you can spend more money on it if you are looking for the highest value.

Easy to operate

You are buying a metal detector to hunt for treasures in wide area of beaches. It should be easy to operate in the sand. Some functions will make it easier. Think about factors that make it easy to use. Ground balance, noise control, waterproof and programs for frequent use settings make effects. Some metal detectors have battery inside to support the power. It is a little heavier but you can take the device to go and search in the sand for long hours.

Detecting items

Get to know what you are looking for before making a choice. In the case you are hunting for target in popular tourist areas. It is more possible to discover coins, watches, bracelets and other items. Some valuable items tend to stay ashore by waves or storms. You may get some coins at sea. Storms and big tides may stir up other materials and treasures onto the shore. You can also find something on the walkway towards vehicles. They get the items lost when walking back to the car with full hands.

Dry or wet sand

The beach metal detector can be used for wet sand as well as dry sand. Detecting metals at beach may be more challenging. One reason is that the salt water tends to magnify the normal minerals. That leads to false detection. You may find nothing when the detector indicator rings. However a lot of metal detectors can adjust to reduce the false. To solve this problem, you have to adjust it to the mineralization level of the sand. If you are using it in wet sand, a special metal detector would be your choice.
