    Looking at the Garrett AT Max and the Teknetics T2, may be going to order a Fisher Gold Bug 2 for prospecting

    Question Comparison

    Okay everyone. I am getting back into metal detecting after a break. My old detector was a Bounty Hunter, did not like it much. So now I am looking at 2 different ones. I am looking for a good multi-purpose detector that I can do a little of everything including gold prospecting. The 1st one is the Garrett At Max and the 2nd one is the Teknetics T2. What is everyone's opinion on which one to consider. Needing some good advice. According to advisors the Teknetics T2 is better for the gold prospecting aspect but only comes with water proof coils. I live in East Tennessee where most gold is located in rivers in the Smoky mountains. The Garrett At Max and Pro are water proof down to 10 feet. Both I am looking at are bundles and come with multiple heads. So what is everyone's opinion.

    #1- Minelab Equinox 800, I also took a rather long break from detecting, 40 years to be exact. Life, marriage, kids, dogs and a career took all my time. I used a Bounty Hunter also but Iíll tell ya, this nox 800 is something else, havenít prospected with it yet, Iíve only air tested the gold 2 mode and it blows me away how sensitive it is on the smallest of targets 12 to 15 inches from the coil. Welcome back to the metal detecting community and good luck on your decision.

    I agree. The Equinox will be a much better choice.

    You may want to wait and check out the new Garrett Ace Apex that runs on 4 frequencies at the same time. It's also priced a lot lower than either the Minelab 600 or the 800. I've already got one on pre-order.
    As high as your coil is off the ground, that's how much depth you're losing in the ground. - Mat

    Welcome back! For me, the break was 45 years...better late than never! Good luck with your MD search.
