I have posted An Extensive Review of the Garrett ATX vs Minelab GPX 5000

Very long story short - if you can get past the ergonomic shortcomings of the Garrett ATX it delivers 90% of the performance of a GPX for 1/3 the price.

For me personally ergonomics is paramount and I want that extra 10%. But for somebody looking for bang for the buck the ATX has got it.

Thanks for the input Steve !

Hi dmort,

All metal detectors by their nature weigh very little and break down into small packages. Lots of models to study at the Gold Nugget Detector Guide but if you have nothing else to go on the Fisher Gold Bug Pro is worth a look. Good all around unit, less than 3 lbs, very compact, and affordable.

Thanks.Portability is a factor as I will have to fly most places I want to hunt in.

Hi Steve:

I do like my Infinium because I use it down by the creeks and would hate to have it destroyed by dropping it into the water. Just picked up Minelabs new pinpointer and it looks like it's made real nice. I like the vibe part of it and that's why I got it over the Garrett.

Hi dmort:

As far as getting started, do your research and get what suits the type of detedting that you plan on doing. Most folks take a long time trying different MD's till they find what works best for their needs. Usually, one isn't enough though.

Good luck detecting!

dmortRe: New Minelab Waterproof PI
What detector do you recommend for a rookie ?
Steve_HerschbachRe: New Minelab Waterproof PI
No, that would make it the second most expensive detector available from the Big 5 manufacturers (First Texas, Garrett, Minelab, Tesoro, White's). It will obviously be a niche machine as few people need a waterproof PI detector.
dmortRe: New Minelab Waterproof PI
Thanks Steve.Not exactly inexpensive :smile:

A few more details on the Minelab SDC were just released at http://www.minelab.com/usa/consumer/knowledge-base/news?article=215928 1/31/14

The US retail has not been publically announced yet but lots of rumors flying about somewhere in the $3000 - $4000 range.
dmortRe: New Minelab Waterproof PI
Whats the cost of this detector ? I like how its so compact !!
