It’s specialized in finding small coins and metals and its target ID meter can detect and show indicators for those items. It also comes with a submersible attachment, so you can search underwater without buying additional accessories. Lastly, it’s a hundred bucks cheaper than AT Gold.
Garrett AT Gold is also an all-terrain metal detector. But unlike AT Pro, AT Gold is specialized for finding gold and small pieces of jewelry. Due to this, AT Gold operates at 18 kHz which allows it to detect gold and other small pieces of jewelry better. AT Gold’s search coil is also smaller, at only 5″ x 8″, allowing it to search into cramp spaces better than AT Pro. Lastly, AT Gold offers a one click search mode which makes it easier for beginners, but also make it less flexible for the more experienced users.
