Weighing in at just over 3 pounds, the Garrett AT Pro is one of the lightest, most comfortable metal detectors available today. It is also one of the most affordable, with a price tag of around $600. This lightweight detector offers excellent depth and performance at an affordable price, making it perfect for any hunter metal detecting on a budget who wants to find treasure in remote areas without an overly heavy machine.
In addition, the Garrett At Pro offers features usually only found in more expensive models. For example, iron audio makes it easy to identify unwanted targets buried deep underground, while the discrimination capabilities eliminate false signals caused by items like cans, bottle caps, and nails. All this while still detecting valuable metals like gold coins and silver jewelry. With its detection modes, iron discrimination, and auto ground balance, the At Pro makes finding things easy!.
The Garrett At Pro was designed for high performance in all environments. With a quality, Double D coil, the machine makes hunting easy. This lightweight machine is ultra-sensitive enough to detect items as small as coins or jewelry yet powerful enough to pinpoint deeper targets up to 12 inches. The all-metal mode is perfect for relic hunting.
As I’m sure you can tell by now, today we are going to take a look at the Garrett At Pro. This was my first machine when I began treasure hunting and a decision that I was glad I made. So let’s begin!
Is the Garrett AT Pro Good for Beginners?
This is a question often asked, and the answer is a resounding yes! The Garrett At Pro is an excellent metal detector for beginners. It also makes an excellent choice as a first metal detector because it is so easy to use and has a variety of features that make it very user-friendly.
First, the Garrett At Pro offers two modes of operation, standard and pro mode. The easier option, standard mode, is perfect for someone just starting out with little or no treasure hunting experience. It gives a simple audible response based on the target. The pro mode is more accurate but requires a more experienced hunter with knowledge of using metal detectors.
The machine also has a variety of features that make it very user-friendly. For example, this detector offers automatic ground balancing and pinpointing, which makes finding things a snap. In addition, the At Pro offers an LCD display, an iron audio feature, as well as notch discrimination, making it great for the beginner who wants a detector that is lightweight and easy to use right out of the box. The machine is also waterproof and submersible, making it ideal for use in all environments.
How Deep Can the AT Pro Find Treasure?
A second question commonly asked is how deep can the At Pro find treasure? One of the main benefits of this metal detector is its ability to detect treasure at greater depths than other metal detectors at this price point. The machine has a detection depth of up to about 12 inches, making it perfect for finding treasure in all environments. This might not be enough for some people, but from my experience, 12 inches is a lot, especially if you’re a beginner.
The machine comes with a high-end dd search coil out of the box. And it’s the coil that gives it good depth and target identification, which we’ll discuss later.
Is the Garrett At Pro Outdated?
Another question being asked more and more is, “is the machine outdated?” Although Garrett Metal Detectors released this machine over ten years ago and newer metal detectors have since come on the market, many treasure hunters still enjoy using this model because of its excellent combination of features and performance.
The Garrett At Pro offers digital target identification and various search modes, including three-tone audio, just like newer machines. In addition, this metal detector has an automatic ground balance that eliminates the need to adjust settings manually while hunting. Finally, the At Pro offers quality performance at an affordable price, which is something that never goes out of style!(more…)
