Hi All
Just Wondering About This The Latest News On This Machine Compared
To The Minelab GPX Series, Is All The Rave That They Are Getting More Depth ?
As Most Reviews I Have Seen Hasn't Impressed Me.
It Seems Many Are Saying To Sell Your Minelab & Get The ATX Garrett . Can Anyone Tell Me If This True
I Sure As Don't Believe This Until I see A Big Deep Hole Dug As What I currently Do With The Gpx Range
My Detector can Hit A Clear Signal At 1 Foot For 2 Gram Nugget In Moderate Ground Conditions.
The Video I Seen On The ATX Garrett They Seem To Put The Small Nugget Almost Under The Dusty Soil
Just Within Sight.
If This Is True To Get The Small Sub Zero Nuggets The Size Smaller Than A Grain Of Rice
Are There Any Gold Prospectors Out There Looking For Small Rice Grains.
Well Thanks To All And Happy Hunting From The Goldfields Explorer

G'day GF,

Don't even consider selling your gpx for an atx, you will be sorely disappointed. The one I tested had no hope of picking up a large shotgun pellet at less than an inch depth let alone tiny(0.05g) gold. F@#&s me what they did on the vids to make them appear so sensitive... Rolling Eyes That was with the gain on max, threshold just on edge, volume max using the stock DD coil. Out of all the targets I dug that day, it only just got one, but only just, it would not have pulled my up. As for bigger deeper bits, forget it too!

Cheers Mick

Hi Mechanic
yes matey like I said it was all tall stories and sad songs
I didn't believe it and not to mention it looks like a toy ayhow
wow I had also heard a big fat story it was going down 6 foot
I have a large range of GPX Machines here and I will stick with my 4,000
As I said in my post I am more then happy with the way I have my 4,000
I can hit a 2 gram target at 1 foot in depth and I have done many test with
3500/ 4500/5000, I would never sell my GPX Machines unless some one made
a better detector that actually went down deeper instead of all these tall stories
we hear of going around so anyhow thanks a lot for your post and
The guy who posted the link also on this topic... Cheers to all and happy hunting

I looked into both the Minelab and Garrett and why I decided on the Garrett was that it as much better luck on noisy ground and when I saw the results of both being used on a field that had been detected for years the results spoke heaps, the ATX was much more able to find the small deep gold, far better than the Minelab. Don't get me wrong, it took 8 months of research before I committed as they are both top detectors. The ATX needs a lot more technique and learning to use than the Minelab, but once mastered is a gem to use.

First set ATX up for location condition, then adjust to test nugget (mine is a 0.13 gram picker) ..... now go hunting.
