Thanks Bearkat! The biggest takeaway for me was that the ATGold got all the targets! Talk about price-performance!

Hey Bearkat. Impressed with all of your videos.A question comes to mind,when you run the AT GOLD over the same targets it does extremely well.how would it compare if the three were in highly mineralised soil,or on a salt beach?

The worse the soil the better the PI's will do. There is some ground down in Cali that the AT Gold just goes bonkers, that;s when a PI just shines. The ground in the video in medium hot but consistent with not a lot of iron pockets o rrocks so the AT Gold does a bit better in areas like that. But you put hot rocks and more iron rich soil...got to have a PI.

I'm not sure how the AT Gold does on a beach as I've never had mine in that environment, but I'd like to hear myself how it does on salt.

You have done one heck of a great job making these ATX videos BK and I really appreciate the hard work you have done here. Watching your videos has been instrumental with me in my decision to buy one and I want to thank you for that BK. I hope you continue to make more ATX videos, as they really show how it performs out in the field.

:)

Great vid BK.
Would you believe that the Aussie boys are still calling it a biased and unfair comparison.
I reckon Garrett should forget Australia, focus on the civilised world and let the Aussie desert dwellers find out for themselves how good the ATX is.

This place is a small market and time is wasted and sales are lost in trying to impress a minority group of ML operators although I am certain that a few will include an ATX in their kit now that they can see that it hits all size gold very well and with just one coil and for sure the beach and relic detectorists will require very little convincing

Were not all desert dwellers some live in the bush and were not all one eyed Minelab users, but were smart enough to use what works for us!! for me its an ATX which i lked what i saw in the first reports and going by the initial sales on the garrett i wasnt alone,for more seroius prospectors theyll get more out of a GPX , and i know theres a lot of pro minelab users in the states ,i dont think your comment is well founded

What settings do you reckon he's using?

This is the REAL market, where Minelab's profits soared in 2011-2013, but have now decreased. Rugged, easy to use detectors with alkaline batteries - no recharging. This is the race and ML has the distribution network. A few months head start by Garrett might be wiped out by the money and attention Minelab has invested in the region. Check out the map. Google Minelab Zimbabwe.

I was being sarcastic because I was in a bad mood :veryangry:..........I am betta now :biggrin:
I realise that the majority of detectorist can see the ATX for what it is and that is a mighty fine metal detector.

Bk thanks for all the great info!
...and be careful of all the non-Minelab homies...they can be very non-reasoned at times and sensible at others...usually when their alone.. LOL


Cheers,

Tye
