    Also they say WATERPROOF (I am guessing to 10 ft)., but the headphones do not look waterproof at all. Optional waterproof headphones?

    Big statement for something you've never seen more than a picture of.

    As for the "time domain", the FBS technology in the E-Trac and Explorers use that, so that doesn't mean it's going to be a PI.

    Where did you read underwater?
    I read water proof which means splash proof.

    Waterproof is a specific term which seems misplaced or at the least ill-advised. Water resistant is the true term they should be using. Even scuba diving equipment will say water restitant to xxx feet.

    After the 30 second demo of Minelabs new detector they tell you that the detector is waterproof to 10 feet just like Garretts AT Pro.

    That's one hell of an expensive toy right there. I'll stick with my cz for the time being, my wallet is not able to choke a horse at this time.

    yes unfortunately those who set prices have full Wallets & several Bank accounts.

    They don't realize not everyone can just say "New toy", "I Need it"

    Despite your poor attempt at humor, the problem with the 10ft depth rating is the amount of "fudge factor" built into that rating. The pressure at 10 feet deep (in the ocean) is 4.4 psi. You can create much more psi against the seals if you move the unit forcefully underwater, such as falling, having a wave crash over you, or just moving too fast.

    If it's highly over engineered and the 10 foot depth is a safe limit, then it will be fine. This is the same problem Garrett had with the initial rollout of the AT-Pro.

    I'll refrain from joining in the social tactlessness you enjoy, and just respond. My post had nothing to do with how far under water it can safely go, it was referring to it "only being splash proof". It does not matter if it is 2' or 200' they would not put a depth on it, if it were merely splash proof. As you so eloquently stated, the actual depth may vary but if it was not submersable at all, and they placed a depth rating on it, they would be in a lot of trouble after the first person dunked it and it ceased to function.

    Wow, if saying "poor attempt at humor" is being socially tactless, you must have real issues with daily living.

    It was minor yes, I just get ticked off at the pattern of cutting down or getting a little jab in from certain posters every time they have a contradictory point or disagree with someone, everyone does it from time to time, some just to a fault. Over reaction? Yes I cannot disagree.

    I read the weight is over five pounds, which I think is even heavier than the e-trac - although the high mount battery pack will help counterbalance somewhat it is sadly still too heavy for some of us weakling women. I am crushed - was praying for a lighter version of an e-trac.

    How about a full blown Etrac packaged in a waterproof design down to fifty feet, scratch that, make it 250 feet. It has bright state-of-the-art color LCD crap, day or night. This thing weights 2.7 pounds soaking wet. It's waterproof in salt water too. Speaking of, it has salt mode. It has the best selection of coil designs and sizes in the industry. It has a lifetime warranty. It gets fifty hours on modern batteries. It costs $350,000,000.

    I posted this in Feb 2011. Was I close?

    The big 17" coil is just stupendous, it's over the top, it's smashing, it's the cat's meow, it's a bit scary. The small 6" is incredible. NO PRICING YET?
