Garrett Pro-Pointer AT Review – Waterproof Pinpointer from Garrett

The Garrett Pro-Pointer AT is currently one of the most requested metal detector accessories we have in stock; and with very good reason. Even the pros are excited about this fully submersible, all terrain hand held pinpointer and you’re sure to be too.

“The Garrett Pro-Pinpointer AT has taken my detector results to the next level. Super accurate, all weather and easy to use.” – Customer review submitted by Bill S.

Garrett ProPointer AT Pinpointer

Garrett Pro-Pointer AT Pinpointer

It’s based on the already fantastic Garrett Pro-Pointer II but, like the Garrett AT Pro, Garrett AT Gold and new Garrett AT Max metal detectors, their Pro-Pointer AT also includes all of the enhancements users have requested over the years. This has made for a spectacular product that detectorists are understandably really thrilled to use.

Waterproof Pinpointer

One of the most well known features of the Garrett Pro-Pointer AT handheld pinpointer is that it can be submersed in up to 10 ft underwater. This makes it ideal for SCUBA diving with your metal detector as well as for those all terrain treasure hunting excursions.

This pinpointer has a lot of other neat things to offer metal detectors too including a “lost alarm” that will alert you after the pinpointer has been unused for 5 minutes; an invaluable feature that will help you find the pinpointer if it’s lost in the field, as so many are! Garrett also gave the Pro Pointer AT a nice bright color to make it easy to find as well. We want you to be in-the-know, so when you hear someone say “Garrett carrot”, that’s their Pro-Pointer AT!

In addition to these features you’ll get to enjoy a fast re-tune which is important especially when you’re searching in mineralized ground. The Pro-Pointer AT also has a 360 degree detection area, vibration and sensitivity controls, and an LED light so you won’t miss anything. With a feature set like this users are raving about this hand held pinpointer.

Here are just a sampling of the customer reviews and comments we’ve received regarding the Pro Pointer AT:

Bill S: “Next Level – The Garrett Pro-Pinpointer AT has taken my detector results to the next level. Super accurate, all weather and easy to use. No matter how small the target, it will let you know.

Thomas V: “I have been metal detecting for 20 years, sometimes it takes some people a long time to get it right. I got a Pro-Pointer (Garrett) and I can cut my time looking for my target 75 percent. Get one! I also got a better digging tool. I have more fun now.

Michelle H: “I gave this to my boyfriend as a Christmas gift and he is over the moon about it.

Robert Hoover: “This Probe is Incredible! Metals can’t hide from THIS probe. It will tell on metal more than a little sister about your secrets. Price is better than anything even IF close to comparable. One of my grandsons realized that it detected BETTER than his toy detector and used it by itself to find targets. Lots of targets. He called it his “Golden Carrot”. This probe is worth every penny and getting it on at their sale price is AWESOME. I’ve ordered a second one to come with the ATMax. Garrett Pro-Pointer AT is my Probe of Choice!

Ken: I was hesitant about purchasing the Garrett Pin Pointer AT, but now that I have it, I kick myself for waiting so long. Really helps with not having to dig deep holes.

Garrett ATX Metal Detector Review

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.

Garrett Metal Detectors introduces the ATX metal detector.

Garrett Metal Detectors introduces the ATX metal detector. Locate deeply buried gold nuggets, coins, relics and jewelry with this innovative Pulse Induction metal detecting system.

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.
