    It is for whatever you want to use it for. Mine will look for gold nuggets and jewelry plus maybe a coin now and then.

    I like the look of the machine and that internal coil wire is awesome. Being able to collapse the machine so easily and not have to mess with the cable...

    The military rugged appearance is nice too, although it has nothing to do with how well the machine may work

    Well,it's not wireless,cost a lot,and weighs a lot,and is way too expensive! I don't think Garrett Hit a Home run with this one?

    Lots of negative people here, but that is usual for people that don't create or make anything. Just easier to run your blow holes off.
    The base package will be $2120.75. I'm in and will get one ASAP.

    Screw Minelab and their expensive crap. Heres a new blog post about the Garrett ATX detector I found.

    Just like using an Infinium LS......if the user can't work it out obviously it must be the detector which is faulty

    When the Infinium LS was first released over here, it had a price tag of $Au 3200.00, I hesitate to guess the price of the ATX when released on this side.
    Maybe a holiday in Hawaii would be cheaper, perhaps one can sweet talk MashDetectors to send a package over ...........

    It depends on where you live,and what you hunt! If you live in gold country,it would be ok,or by the beach! For the "average" person detecting (relic hunting,or coinshooting) it wouldn't be the first choice!

    I agree, I love the fact that it breaks down into self for a compact carry, the rugged looks and man that HUGE coil would be great swinging some and I mean some of the open areas where I hunt, but most of the time the 8x10DD is to big, so I'd opt for the smaller coil. Rhode Island is much like Indiana in respect to gold, I dont think we have any lol. Could I drop the 2K plus for it, sure I could, but would I? I think not.

    If you get a divorce, you sure can't afford one. They don't call it the high price of leaving for nothing. lol. I'm glad Garrett listened to their customers and critics and made some improvements, especially with the coil wire. It's out of my range, but I hope to get a sea hunter next year. Intended to get one this fall, but haven't been able to get out and find anything lately. HH.

    My on;y concern with the build quality is, that pivot point where the coil attaches to the shaft, is this an adjustable nut? or is it fixed up? As I can see it getting loose after a bit of use, especially if you fully fold it up each time after use.

    Otherwise I will be looking foward to ordering one with the 20" coil

    It will work well in the high mineral soils, as the delay in the release of it was becasue they had trouble getting it to work in the soils over here in Aus, so they just had to fine tune the firmware and then release it

    I am sure glad I own a GPX 5000. If it were not for Minelab setting the performance bar everyone else would not have to work so hard just trying to catch up. And while I am getting an ATX it sure is not to replace my GPX. I just need something I can dunk in the water. If I could get a GPX 5000 in a CTX 3030 housing I would be buying that instead.

    What is with the rear coil attachment point? A 20" coil hanging out in front like that is an ergonomic nightmare. I guess it has to do with the integrated coil/rod/cable design but that is not going to be an easy thing to swing for long. Another detector that needs a harness and bungee. The little sling included is not going to cut it.

    Same here, but it might take a while to get unbiased reporting. The very first people in line might be a bit biased.

    This is built on the AML 1000 mine detector platform. Has some Garrett Infiniun features. 3 pkgs available based on coil choice. One offering includes all 3 coils.(Costa Mucho) Current AML 1000 (EBay) $600,00/$1500.00- Externally you can't tell the difference. Sucker is built like a tank. You can Google the AML 1000- lots of info & pictures. Personally I am looking @ the Military model to give it a shake down. I don't
    think I can go wrong! It being a PI ,& I mostly Prospect? Would appreciate input once you look it over. I hope the $2000.00 + prices mentioned
    is the 3 coil pkg. I can see maybe $999.00/$1500+ (Day Dreaming).
