I have only ever used the ATX Extreme a couple of times as it is a little out of my price range, but it was one of the best machines I have ever used. I couldn’t believe the depth it was finding things at – particularly on the beach.
My friend owns the ATX and he regularly finds gold with it when he goes prospecting out bush, and he reckons what he has found has paid the detector off 3 times over.
