    I sold my xlt for the at pro and feel it is a better machine. This is just one opinion of course.

    it goes in the water and I find it gets more depth. I relic hunt and have gone over areas that I have been many times previously , found missed items and seems to pick up on copper better. IMO

    Parker. My first question is the same as Frankn's.... What is wrong (WAS wrong) with the XLT? Second: Did you own it long enough to really get to know the machine? I don't want to sound accusatory but if the AT PRO you were expecting to buy was the one you posted from Craig's list, you should have taken the time to reflect on Frankn's question and answered him. If you took the time, you would still have a detector. The XLT is a perfectly good machine. So is the AT PRO, I guess. Just give the machine enough time. TTC

    Good deal! Now hold on to the xlt till you have at LEAST 100 hours on it. Then, if you don't think it's the one, swap it out. I think you'll find it is all you'll need.... for awhile. Take care. TTC

    I started with the Ace 350 and quickly upgraded to the AT-Pro. It's an easy transition. The AT-Pro has still found stuffI in areas I pounded with the 350! So in my opinion the At-Pro is way better than the Ace350 plus it goes underwater or you can have it out in the rain with no worries. I have hunted with it in fresh water rivers and the ocean beaches here on the Jersey Shore without any worry of getting it wet or splashed by waves and worrying that it won't work the next time I take it out again. Do a search, there are plenty of others that have gone the same path as I and do not regret it one bit.
    It is like comparing a BH Pinpointer to the Garrett ProPointer. All who take the chance and convert are great-full they took the chance and will never look back.
    One must be smarter than the equipment they are working with!

    Well, after reading all the comments, I must say, you never find it all. If you go over with another detector, how do you know that the other detector would not have found it? It is best to do a side to side test to see which reaches down further.
    As you can see from my detector listing, I use different types of detectors for different purposes. The XLT is used the most, The Surfmaster PI is used at the beach, The Hays 2 Box is for cache hunting and when I want to ignore small targets. The Vibra-Tector Is a speciality small underwater pinpointer with a range of app. 6". Different tools for different jobs.

    I've used both and would take the XLT any day over the AT Pro. Much more customization possibilities with the XLT and it doesn't ring bottle caps up as coins like the AT pro. Also, the At pro is the most uncomfortable detector I have ever used...shallow arm cup and a big cumbersome coil with holes in it that love to snag on grass and pop your elbow out of the cup.
    Why do they call it "Taking a dump" when you're actually leaving one?

    thank you for your response i acutally sold it and bought another xlt with better attchments for cheaper and i dont regret 1 bit missing the at pro deal besides its was 450 with a gpp lol i think my garrett ace 350 is uncomfortable as well i kind of figured the at pro would be the same
