Comparison: Garrett AT MAX & Garrett AT PRO. Depth + salt test

It’s strange, very strange, when the manufacturer has to prove that its new machine is on par with an old one. But it’s difficult to prove it if the new detector looks and works similarly to the old one. For example, the manufacturer says that the new Garrett AT MAX provides greater detection depth than the old Garrett AT PRO. But is it true? Both devices actually come with identical coils. Or, as another example, according to Garrett, on salt beach (and in saltwater) will the Garrett AT MAX operate considerably better than the Garrett AT PRO. Here’s a salt beach test: to compare the Garrett AT MAX and Garrett AT PRO. Also, a depth test: how the machines react to salt sand and water. Continue reading

Minelab Equinox 800: recovery speed test. Are you serious about it?

If the new Minelab Equinox 800 has a Reactivity setting (identical to that of the XP Deus), does it allow to equate this machine with the XP Deus? The Minelab Equinox 800 has 8 reactivity levels, whereas the XP Deus has only 6+1 of them. Which detector is more awesome here? Continue reading

Garrett AT MAX depth test. Comparison: Garrett AT PRO / Garrett AT Gold

Now nobody can say a new Garrett AT MAX is similar to an old Garrett AT PRO – the new one comes with a volume control. So the machine really has a different look )) Here’s a Garrett AT MAX depth test and its comparison with the Garrett AT PRO and Garrett AT Gold. Continue reading

White’s MX Sport: recovery speed test. An unusual thing has happened

Monte’s Nail Board Test has been recognized by metal detector manufacturers. It’s an unusual event indeed as they theretofore stubbornly ignored real requests from hobby enthusiasts. And it is White’s that has become a brave path-breaker. Here’s a test performed with the White’s MX Sport working with different coils. Appreciate frankness from White’s! Continue reading

Comparison between pinpointers. Test on gold

See this test and you will know how to choose a pinpointer and what things should be checked while buying this one. Here’s a comparison between the Garrett Pro-Pointer AT, White’s TRX and Deteknix XPointer Wader: testing on gold targets. Let’s have a look at how different probes can see a small nugget, a bigger one, and how they react to a gold chain. Continue reading
