Very good question. I would think that with the multi frequency capability, Minelab would incorporate the algorithm to cancel out the salt effect, especially because they are calling this an all terrain machine. Just my thoughts.

It will work fine in the salt water, it is multi freq.

No one knows until someone DUNKS it for us.
But the Specs on paper say it should work good in Water and SALT.

The AT is a single freq too....not multi. IF it can perform based on whats being put out ..... i see a lot of potential as a wader out there to neck deep just like the CTX. Look..... its light and easier to swing, its multi switchable to single freq, its more capable than the multi for dry sand on small gold, it has a TID, and some are saying its doing better than the CTX in difficult minerals. Best of all its simple....and faster than an Xcal. I dont believe it will out do a CTX in the dirt....... but at the beach and for the crazy price we may well be seeing a lot of them..... especially from those with ATs. We are seeing info from just dirt hunters who seem to be giving it high marks....... but i believe it may have greater potential to equal a CTX IN the water.........IF we ever get someone to post about that.

Not a peep out of Drayton? His name was shown as going to Detectival but I am not sure if the Hurricane changed those plans? Still you would think he would be the logical salt water tester?

I can see it's quick in single frequency but how fast is it in multi frequency ???? No one is saying anything about that. Do we know ?
