.. in time to make our 12th WTHO in Nevada starting June 3rd? Something new in physical packaging and circuitry design concept that would make a good performer in dense Iron Nails, Rusty Tin and other challenging conditions we face?

The AT Max, but that was more-or-less blending some of the features of the Pro and Gold models with a couple of additions. They are still top-heavy, and lack many of the circuitry design features we have seen over the last 5+ years.

I will bring the AT Gold. It does not have "iron audio", as one would expect - you cannot adjust the volume, but you can turn the iron "grunt" on or off if you wish. Frankly, as you pointed out with the Impact, in nail infested sights, you really don't want to hear that anyway - would drive you nuts after a while. Since, in a lot of nails, with discrimination set critically for nails, you'll still get some "blips" once in a while reminding you the nails are still there.

The AT Gold Passes every iron test I could throw at it, as well as the Impact.

So, the only remaining *real* problem with it is the balance. I will be working on that. Since the detector is 1 lb. less than the Impact or MXT, there's wiggle room to improve it with a counterweight.

They are at a point to come up with something.
