My experiences and opinions about Garrett's AT MAX.

May 24, 2021 04:44AM avatar
Briefly, I have only borrowed an AT MAX a couple of times, and for the most part I like it. Now, for the rest of my thoughts ....thinking

Just wondering what everyone thinks of them? The Z-Link pinpointer and wireless headphones really appeal to me and coil selection available. Let me know your thoughts or opinions please. I've had really awesome luck with my atgold in the past. Also the Hoover boys seems to have really good luck with them.

I liked it best with the 5X8 DD for general-purpose hunting.

I really liked it with their 4½" Concentric coil for trashier sites, and wish they made that coil for their Apex.

I liked their adjustable settings and mode-change configuration.

In several park hunting applications with minimal trash, I got decent detection depth, especially with an 8½X11 DD coil.

I liked having a Threshold-based All Metal mode.

I liked the momentary-use of the Iron Audio function.

I did not like the coil connector location and fumbling to use it.

I did not like the top-heavy feel and balance.

I do not need a waterproof detector so it could have been configured in a smaller, lighter package.

I did not like the fact that it lacked a good Iron Audio Volume control.

More +/- comments could be dug up, but it was otherwise a better general-purpose detector than the AT Pro or AT Gold. That said, it was not as good working in dense Iron Nails or other ferrous debris as the models in my current personal-use Detector Outfit.
