Anyone have any experience with the new Garrett AT Gold? Was wondering how it performs against the Whites and Fisher units? I like that it is submersible and could be used for some shallow water detecting too.

 I don't have the AT Gold (just the AT Pro, which is surprisingly sensitive) and have considered getting one. I'm kinda leery re. ground handling since it seems to have a problem with saltwater beaches.. what about alkali flats 'n such? This summer, I plan to use the AT Pro for water hunting (don't want to chase around specks when chest deep in a stream) and my V3 for bedrock/dry land hunting. I suppose, since the AT Gold is so new, that it will take a while for any really substantive reports on it's performance to surface. Still, it looks to be a rather skookum unit.

Mine just came in last week,  I'll post my results as soon as I get some field time in.  The Water proof to 10' feature was a big reason I picked the AT Gold.  Even if I don't hunt too much in the water, I still like to traverse small creeks in the summer.  Haven't had a bad spill yet, but when it happens I don't want to be saying goodbye to $700.

I have only had it for a year, I have the gold bug 2 as well, the at gold is pretty good for the very hot rock mineralized areas...thank god, as the goldbug2 is absolutely way too sensitive, it goes off like crazy and takes years to learn in a hot rock mineralized area...but I guess it is good in a gold bearing area where there are not many hotrocks...anyways the at gold will pick up large flakes, maybe the size of pencil head eraser flat, in disc2, threshold 3, sens cranked, it is hard to pick it out but you can....It is excellent picking out jewelery on the beaches as well!!!

I'm getting ready to order my second detector.  My first was a cheap-o Radio Shack that was purchased after my daughter got upset at her boy friend and tossed her engagement ring off the balcony of the hotel we were staying at.  The little detector found it and I was hooked.  Now I'm looking into a Garrett AT Pro or the AT Gold, haven't decided yet but it will be in the next few weeks...Marry Christmas to ME!  I haven't decided which model yet, so given every one here obviously has more experience than I, what is the general views on the two machines.  I'm looking for a good all-around machine that I can take to the park, and also for (possibly) for prospecting along the Arkansas River or the mountains in Colorado

Thanks in advance for your input.

 I'd say to get a White's MXT or MXT Pro. I ended up going back to the MXT (MXT Pro now). Dead simple to use, extremely sensitive to gold, and the ground tracking (best in the industry) allows it to be used over ground that will plain shut other VLF detectors down. Get the DD elliptical coil (5x10"ish) for it and you'll b set.
