    First hunt with the ATPro made me a believer!

    Picked up a new ATPro today as a fathers day/graduation gift to myself. Went to 2 of my spots that i went over numerous times with my ace350 and managed 1.52 in clad, some other junk, and this pendant/medallion thing that i think may be silver. No marks but it looks like silver and sounds like silver when i drop it lol. it has the word "soni soit qui mal y pense" on it. also 4 more wheats that i for sure never got signals on with my 350. That makes 106 wheats on the year. Some of my targets had multiple pcs of junk in the hole with them. This thing is a beast. It feels solid as a rock compared to the 350. Dont get me wrong i love my 350 but I felt it was time for an upgrade. Thanks for looking and HH!Click image for larger version.

    yeah you along with others on Tnet gave some sound advice, I really like this thing! even the low grunt from iron isnt a terrible sound. My 350s iron grunt made me wanna wrap it around a tree, very loud and annoying. The atpro is smooth and has some nice tones, especially the high ones

    The badge is the British royal coat of arms & I would guess that it is military related. I am not sure of age. Honi soit qui mal y pense" is a French phrase meaning: "Shamed be he who thinks evil of it". Nice find!

    thanks magnum!, it has all the signs of silver but i dont know, i dont have a test kit either. It can be aluminum but i cant bend it, but i dont know if thats a valid way of determining silver or not

    It looks like a silver plate to me. I can see what looks like brass wearing through on the back.

    Ya know, you remind of a very valid point and one that really bears repeating.

    When choosing a detector, remember that you are going to be listening to it for many, many hours to come. If the pitch or frequencies it generates is even a little bit annoying to one's ears at first. It's NOT going to get better! Everyone should "listen" to a proposed detector for a bit to make sure it's sounds aren't hard on their ears.

    Like you say, there are a few that simply cannot stand for a few seconds, let alone hours! The AT-Pro has a frequency that I found I could listen to for hours without a problem. If it's too harsh on you, you're not going to get out of the detector what you might expect.

    So, along with the depth, range, discrimination, ground canceling. It would be a good thing to simply listen to the signals it can make before buying.

    I suspect and predict that you are going to be a VERY happy camper with this one.

    HH!

    absolutely!, ive read multiple reviews why some cant stand minelabs. I read somewhere that someone said it sounded like R2D2 on crack and thats why he got rid of it. Thats not to say i wouldnt gladly use a Minelab, but it just goes to show how, like you said, those tones can make or break your use of any chosen detector

    glad you are one with your new machine. Nice assortment of finds and i think a return visit to that spot is in order. My Pro sitting in the spare room....using my 24 year old Freedom 3 Plus...when machines were machines!
