I've enjoyed 'different' experiences though the years.

Like every detector maker there will be highs and lows in their lifetime. I had a few of their first black pin-pointers and they would last about 10 to 12 months, and I pamper my equipment. Then I had a 'carrot' and it worked well. Now I have three of the AT Pro-Pointer 'carrots' w/Z-Lynk technology and they are very reliable. Again, I pamper my equipment.

Then there are the general-use metal Detector and I have enjoyed a lot of success with various Garrett models, from their early BFO's, to their TR's, and VLF-TR's in the latter '70s and early '80s. Then it was more of a hit-miss with various models through to recent years. I liked the Scorpion Gold Stinger, and more for a God Nugget detector I like the AT Gold. I just can't get out nugget hunting like I used to. I liked some of what the AT Pro could do, it just wasn't for me with what I had, but the AT Max is a good detector.

However, with the introduction of the new Apex, I feel they brought us a very competitive, and lightweight and decent detector in an acceptable mid-price range. That's why I own three of them with different coils mounted.

I can't think of any manufacturer who hasn't offered some less desirable models and experienced some 'lows' through the years. But with Garrett, they DO have some very good detectors today, and their AT Pro-Pointer is also one of the best Pin-Pointers out there, at least in my opinion..
