“I’m new to the trade but have a serious interest. I’m looking to purchase the AT Pro Sports Pack as well as the Pro-Pointer. Any recommendations or other items I should consider? I’ll mainly be detecting on farm properties for relics and precious metals. Thank you for your assistance.”
Excellent question and good pick on the metal detector. I think the AT Pro is one of the best on the market. It is an excellent machine with a lot of options and is priced affordably. The pin pointer is a must. It is a life saver and pays for itself in time and recovery. I recommend the Garrett Pro Pointer II. It is rugged and works like a charm especially when you learn to dial it in to find treasure (more on that later).
Here are the top recommended detectorist tools in addition to a good metal detector and pinponter and explanations why.
