There are a number of good choices out there, I just hope to give them a fairly informed choice. I could go on etc. etc., I will only add that so far, I have not found any good information about it anywhere. The one video put out by Garrett was as sad as the one Minelab put on the Vanquish.

    Calabash, liked your most recent post here. That 74 khz on my XP Deus just scored 12 Civil War buttons in a hunted out site running that HF coil. Every machine known to God and man has been on this spot. Since the 1960's. I am the CAT!

    I just preordered one. The Hoover boys are doing a review of it next week!
    Not sure if itís entry level, being the price and complexity. They say itís nothing like the other ace machines...

    You are right about the APEX, newbies will order it, I did! What I like is the multi freq 5, 10, 15, and 20 selectable plus the Multi Freq and Salt Multi Freq use those plus a few higher ones. Those are not selectable individually but they are there and in use when on MF or MFS. I travel a wide range of soil types and beach types so I see the MF and MFS a big plus. The Iron audio should be a real plus. That was always a distraction on my "very old" White Coin Master. As for yellow box... love it , easy to see in the woods, and I really wouldn't care if they made it purple. Not into fashion. I made the leap due to weight, MF, MFS and visual and audio and ol' guy can work with. Now if it would just hurry up and ship....

    All the videos I've seen about the Apex look to be Garrett promotional propaganda. Let's see some unbiased head to head comparisons......both against other Garrett machines and other detectors in their class.

    Unless I am mistaken calabash, the Garrett can be switched into 3 different single Freq's, where the Minelab Vanquish can not. A small thing really, but still, options like that are nice to have IF you choose to use them. Am I mistaken? about the Vanquish not being to do that, pretty sure I'm not, anyway, good to see Garett with this, my first detector was a Garrett A3B United States gold hunter, I run Minelabs now, but still have a little soft spot for Garretts, kind of like your very first date, but if asked to recommend a detector to a new user? I might point to the Apex over the Vanquish. Now, to everybody else, I'm not going against calabash, I believe that guy has forgotten more about detectors then I have yet to lean, and that's all I have to say about that.

    Well, haven't noticed them make the claim that it will obsolete all other detectors, so theres that ,,,

    Touchť.

    But still... that claim can still stand until it releases and tested.

    Couple years too late, only goes to 20khz iirc. Garret detectors are terrible imo

    Is that all you do, prowl forums looking to trash garrett for some odd reason ?
    More than likely you know nox sales are going to tank when the Apex is released, and are trying to reassure yourself that you still will have the best machine.

    Garrett maybe late to the table with multi frequency but they are definitely not too late. They are doing just fine with their competitors. Whites and Tesoro I would say are too late. Garrett is more than capable of putting out competitive machines and theyíve just proved it with the Apex. More to come for sure. What is it you donít like about Garrett detectors?

    I own a nox 800, a CTX3030, a whites TDI, a Garrett AT Pro- and I can honestly say most of my great finds came with the AT Pro.

    The CTX is the superior detector available by far IMO- but it does come at both a great cost, and great weight.

    But to say Garret is bad is silly..
