Obviously based on the Recon model. Moderators I hope that it is alright to post these links to the Garrett site for those who might be interested. If not please delete the post.

Looks very interesting including a larger coil.

Thanks Dave.
Hmmm ?    $2,995.00 USD  = $3,261.04 AUD !   About the price of a Minelab 4000. Now the obvious question will be,
" Does it outperform a Minelab 4000 on gold in Australian soils?" (What do you reckon Bruce?)  We will just have to wait and see.

Thanks Urbanfox. Looks different to a minelab. Nice and compact no cable from the coil. I wonder what it can do here. Be interesting. Anyone know if it discriminates with a mono coil?

Looking at it, a bloke could pull up, jump out, drag this thing out of the box, and be using it in a minute. It looks to fold up and telescope into just about nothing.

Garrett are still pushing it as a multi-purpose machine, which I expect they need to do in the US as I understand there are 10 times the number of blokes in the states using detectors for other than gold than there are blokes solely looking for gold.

Whether it will be as good on gold as a GPX5000 remains to be seen, but I'd say there will be blokes who would prefer the versatility of this machine if they want to detect at the park or beach as well as look for a bit of gold from time to time.

My young bloke had a rifle magazine come apart recently in the scrub, and the internal spring sprung off into the distance... somewhere.... but even though it couldn't have been far away, we couldn't find it. Next trip, I have to throw a GPX into the vehicle and then put on all the gear just to hopefully spend no more than 10 minutes finding this spring in the paddock.... I just might buy one of these Garrett things yet :-)

The gun is an old Anschütz, and I thought we would never buy another magazine for it, however, we were able to. I would still like to find that spring.

The Yank forums are not saying much about this detector other than a few saying they are going to keep their AT PROs and AT Golds because the ATX is too pricey. So not causing a flap over there.

I have not even been able to find an ML PI Forum in the States.Laughing ......Mind you, I have not looked very hard. Smile

The video shows it being used with a collapsed shaft.....something you cannot do with a Minelab. This should give us some idea of its sensitivity, or lack of.??? Shocked 


Still, it looks intriguing, and providing its not a re-cased Infinium, i might have a place for one myself. scratch 


Time will tell.

That looks the goods,love the design,no external motorcycle size batteries to carry etc. 
 Surely they learnt from the Infinium and this thing is on par at least. 
 Finally some comp for minelab jeez i hope so. 
 Is this why the next Minelab hasnt cometh? There been waiting to see what this Garretts like?

Seems by a lot of the comments on the video that people their aren't to impressed. It cost more than mine labs offering and probably does the same or less than the ctx3030. I don't think being an all purpose machine that it could even approach the GPX5000. If it did it would cost more than the 5K.

Most of the commenters on that youtube vid seem to be coming from a coin/relic angle (complaints about having to dig everything due to it being a PI machine).

I like one of the comments:

"There's no freakin way this PI machine is gonna sell! You'd go nuts in the real world detecting! I'm sure it would do good in the gold fields, where there's nothing out there but gold!!"
lol!

Hmmm ?    $2,995.00 USD  = $3,261.04 AUD !  
Prices are out (close Shiraz):

Ok. I've just got my email from Garrett & here are the prices.

ATX by itself - $3399

ATX Deep seeker package - $3999

We are now taking pre orders & they will be in store after mid next month.
Get in quick as there will no doubt be a limited supply.

would be good if Garrett Australia would give a couple of the new machines
to independent testers here. If they're as good as I hope, it will benefit their
sales greatly.
Maybe some 'forumers' could be testers.... Cool

Obviously this new Garrett is aimed at the CTX 'cause they named it the ATX. same coil range and kit package with same accessories as the CTX as well.

I saw someone online say that the ATX price was USD $2495 but it looks cheaply made.

will give Minelab a swift kick in the buttocks. bet you ML will drop the CTX price to about the same in a few weeks.

It's a powerful beast, it runs off 8 AA batteries. Q24  Should I sell the 4500? I am getting tired of digging those 2 foot holes.
