The new Garrett Pro-Pointer AT is much more sensitive than the original Pro-Pointer. Shown is a 0.15 gram nugget which the new detector easily isolated in ‘maximum’ sensitivity mode. The Pro-Pointer AT has a real ‘sweet spot’ on the shaft approximately 1-2cm from the tip (where the nugget is resting), ideal for sifting through excavated soil in a ‘sweeping’ motion to recover those tiny sub-grammers.
Our new Garrett Propointer AT has just arrived, so we went straight down to the local creek for a test run. We will post a video shortly, showing the adjustable levels of sensitivity, and its ability to isolate small gold nuggets thus reducing recovery time.
