    Just to make it simple

    For those looking for the best all around mid range detector, here is some help. The At Pro can't be beat, unless of course you detect salt beaches. The AT Pro can't do that from a practical standpoint. On the other hand the Minelab Equinox can. It is essentially an AT Pro that can handle the salt very well. So if you live in the middle of the country and never detect salt beaches, save some money and find an AT Pro at a bargain. You won't be disappointed. If you need wet salt sand or salt water capability, buy a Nox you will get the best of both worlds but at about twice the cost. Just my opinion.

    Wise words. The AT Max is also a good, competitive machine as is the Fisher F-75 and a couple of the White's machines. My old Tesoro Vaquero would kick it even in trashy areas, but Tesoro is having technical difficulties, if you would. I have a digging partner with an AT Pro and he can whoop most folks real good with it. You are correct with the salt water, but even my Tesoro Cibola does good in salt water, however, I generally don't go in the water anymore.

    They the Equinox 800 or Equinox 600 both beat the heck out of the At Pro and you can hunt salt beaches

    I don't detect for the stuff I find, I detect for the stuff I haven't found.

    If I didn't find it I hope you did.

    For the slight difference in price, The Equinox is a much better deal. There's a reason that Garrett has discounted the AT series and/or added incentives to buy one.....they couldn't compete at the same price as the Equinox because the Nox beats the AT in just about every other aspect.

    If you do not need wet salt capability, the Pro is indeed a good option. A used one can be had for half the price of a Nox, the battery system is simple and reliable, headphone options are cheap and numerous, coil choices vary and are amazingly adaptable, pin pointing is super accurate, iron audio is exceptional, its ability to separate signals especially with a small coil is impressive, its ability to hit on the smallest targets is exceptional, and with eight modes and numerous sensitivity adjustments its15 MHz frequency is extremely versatile.

    Anyone know where I can get a Equinox800 for around $500? I'll even pay $600!
    Great deal on the at pro is around $350.
