    garrett pulse 200 'underwater' detector worth..

    assuming it is true that it is in good working shape- has new seals- 2 coils-headphones.. is the older pulse 200 garrett and acc. worth $225 (maybe 250)? I made a 225 offer and waiting on response. Thanks. I do not plan on diving but rather be in chest high beach areas,. maybe up to chin if I get brave. thanks

    You might have a hard time getting parts or repairs done if parts aren't available. The battery packs used to run about $50.

    Beach and Shallow Water Hunting
    Got caught by high tide recently when wading off Gulf coast beach MDing on first sandbar. When water got to my neck I decide to return to shore BUT the "dip" (not sure what to call it) between shore and sandbar was 7 ft deep! I struggled to return to shore, using my scoop and metal detector to prop myself above the water to breath but 2 ft waves went over head and found myself several times underwater a ft or more. Almost had to ditch the weightbelt! Managed to return to shore, finally, but learned a valuable lesson - watch the tide and if it is coming in, give yourself plenty of height to get back to shore!

    thanks on the info guys. I am passing on it. He never got back to me. I would only be in lake beaches here in WI.. no tides. Are some sandbars in rivers here but too dangerous for my blood. thanks again.

    If your budget can support it, the Garrett AT Pro would be a good choice for you lakes in WI.

    I have a question. .have the ace 250 and thinking of purchasing the At Pro...I have no interest in digging post holes. . So thinking the AT would be good.
    I will sometimes do dry beach and maybe the wet sand as well..some of the Santa Cruz Ca beaches have quite a bit of black sand..if it is a beach with black sand would the wet be the only problematic area for the AtPro?
    Thanks

    squiggy.. you'd get better response if you ask that question as a new thread instead of a thread I started on a different detector. No one will know your asking about a ATpro unless they got info to add to the pulse 200 I started. I'm just thinking you'd get better responses starting the thread as a ATpro question. Much, Much more actively used detector than the old pulse 200. Hope you get your answer.

    I would not suggest you purchase it. It is old, and probably can't be repaired. There are a lot of used pulse detectors a lot newer and still repairable for that kind of money.


    Keep an eye out for a used Infinium or Sea Hunter Mark II. Much better and has newer technology.
