    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.

    I do not pay attention to product reports from others. I get it and try it myself. If I need it, I keep it, if not, I sell it. Small price to pay for getting educated. I share what I think but I could not give a fig if anyone else buys an ATX or not. Well, ok, that is not exactly true. I do want machines like this to succeed just so manufacturers will take chances and try new things. Kudos to Garrett for delivering something other than just another mid-frequency do-it-all VLF detector.

    Relying on others for information and then accusing them of bias is rather uncalled for in my opinion. Obviously Garrett dealers are going to have nothing but positives to say. Then there are others who trash stuff never having laid a hand on it. Or others who truly do not like a machine for their own personal needs while another person may think it is the cat's meow. Throw in the old what works good in my ground may suck in your ground and at the end of the day you can just pick the opinion you are predisposed to believe because it says what you want to hear.

    Anyway, I will get one to find out what I can do with it, in large part simply because I enjoy trying new detectors. I will report back on it, and anyone who thinks I am biased please just ignore me. Should I wait a few months so as to not be one of those dreaded first people in line?

    I am jealous of you guys in the US, as Garrett Aust has set our price at $3999 for the deepseeker package and $3399 for the base model.
    All US dealers have also been told that they will be penalised if they send any Garrett detectors to Aust, to people like me who don't want to pay the ripoff retail price of here if I can save $900 by buying from the US.

    Now taking bets as to how long it will be before there are Chionese copies flooding Fleabay etc

    They make it look like you can distinguish an iron target real easy. If it does, it will be the first PI that actually lets you know the target is iron. Would make a great saltwater detector if it can read iron that easy. A big problem with PIs in the water is having to dig deep bobby pins.

    I think my Minelab F3 mine detector does that. I have only played with it a little but IIRC the sounds are different for Ferrous/nonFE targets and it's a PI.

    If you study the specs on the Recon Pro and the ATX, you will see that they are quite different. The ATX is a PI like the Infinium, which I have used for many years. The Infinium has limited discrimination, and I would never even consider using it in most places where I have used mt VLF detector. However, when I wanted depth in hunted out beaches or depth in hunted out woods searching for relics, the Infinium has served me well. If the ATX is an improvement over the Infinium, that would be a real bonus. I bet that the gold nugget hunters are watching this new detector.

    When hunting with the Infinium, most bobby pins are easy to ID. They give double bleeps, or give a moderate signal one way and quiet or null signal the other way. If the ATX has an iron ID, that is bonus!

    I know the Sea Hunter and Infinium have disc but I hear people say all the time that they really don't do a good job discriminating. We will see if this one is different. The ATX has an iron check button, that's different.

    The new unit is the ATX-Extreme PI machine At $2400+ it better find it from 10' away dig it and put it in your pouch. The price is too extreme for me but you guys that have money to burn or nothing better to spend your money on go for it. One good thing it will have is Garrett customer service standing behind it. I have two Garrett machines but this one is too rich for me

    Just curious about performances...Let's see some review...for the price I would like something of definitive, as Minelab CTX wasn't.
    1) Never dig in the archaeological sites or under the plowed soil.
    2) Give all the ancient stuff to the authorities

    2500$ isn't too much for an avid hobbyist. If you spend more than 15 hours a week detecting; this machine will pay for itself in no time (if you know what you're doing).

    Just because something will pay for itself doesn't mean its not overpriced...it just means it will pay for itself.
    Keppy and extractor like this.
