New Garrett Gold Detector Overview – ATX Extreme Pulse Induction Metal Detector
The wait is nearly over! Garrett has just introduced their most advanced gold prospecting and relic hunting metal detector. The Garrett ATX metal detector is so versatile it is sure to become popular with coin and beach hunters as well. This premium machine is designed to military specifications! It’s unique feature set helps the ATX stand apart from its competitors and makes it a metal detector that can search successfully nearly anywhere.
This Garrett multi frequency detector features highly advanced pulse induction (PI) technology so it’s adept at finding treasure in even the most highly mineralized soils – including salt water. Yet, this machine is highly sensitive as well; which isn’t always the case with PI detectors. As a result, the ATX can find jewelry at the beach, tiny gold nuggets in iron stone ground, along with coins, and relics of all kinds even in the most extreme conditions. The ATX has been tested in the gold fields of Western Australia and in the highly mineralized soil of Virginia which is famous for it’s great relic hunting areas.
Detection of small targets is enhanced even further on the ATX metal detector by the addition of a new Garrett DD search coil. This unique search coil design supports easy pinpointing as well as uniform sensitivity around the entire detection area so the machine is able to find large and small targets even at it’s deepest depths.
In order to search even more deeply, users have the option to purchase the Garrett ATX metal detector with a special deep seeker package. This gives you a large, 20” Mono search coil in addition to the 10” X 12” medium DD coil that comes standard with the machine. The larger the search coil used the deeper the metal detector can find treasure. Often however, when you use a large search coil, sensitivity to smaller targets is diminished. However, with the Garrett DD search coil design this sensitivity remains much more intact even when using the larger 20” search coil.
The Garrett ATX metal detector is also unique in that it comes with a fully collapsible stem as well as an adjustable search coil up to 90 degrees. This means you can search embankments, crevices, and other tight places just as easily as you can search wide open fields. Not only that, the ATX metal detector is also submersible up to 10 feet to further widen the types of terrain searchable with this single machine.
ATX Users will also enjoy features like the one handed control design, LED light indicators, audio retune to cancel out ambient noises, and other specialized features like these. The machine can be operated with the included headphones or via the external speaker too, and it has motion and non-motion modes as well to accommodate your preferences.
