Choose from powerful single frequencies to enhance detection on specific targets*, or select one of Apex’s simultaneous multifrequency modes to achieve excellent detection on all targets in all soils.
Fully waterproof, the Viper is a blend of two of Garrett’s most popular DD coils. The 11" size is large enough to cover plowed fields, but its narrow 6" footprint allows easy separation of targets in iron-infested areas.
The Viper is designed as a low-impedance, broad-bandwidth coil to support the new Apex Multi-Flex frequency technology.
Note: As a result of the Multi-Flex coil technology, the Apex Viper coil is not compatible with older ACE detectors. Prior ACE coils are not compatible with an Apex detector. *
Note: lower frequencies generally offer improved detection on larger and more conductive targets (i.e. large silver coins). Higher frequencies generally offer improved detection on smaller and less conductive targets (i.e., hammered silver coins, gold nuggets).
APEXFREQUENCY OPTIONS 5kHz|10kHz|15kHz|20kHz|Multi-Frequency|Multi-Salt Specifications
IRON VOLUME:CONTROL WHAT YOU HEAR IRON VOLUME allows user to decrease the volume of iron targets, while the volume of non-ferrous targets remains at normal level. >
Experienced treasure hunters often like hearing all targets, but will appreciate the option to decrease volume of undesired items.
With eight Iron Volume adjustments, Apex offers more flexibility than any other detectors in its price range.
EXCELLENT DETECTION DEPTH on a wide variety of targets. >
FAST TARGET RECOVERY SPEED HIGHLY VERSATILE LIGHT WEIGHT Well-Balanced
Only 2.5 Pounds Multi-Flex Multi-Frequency technology makes Apex ideal for coin shooting, relic hunting, shallow water wading, beach hunting, and even prospecting! >
INTUITIVE AND EFFICIENT CONTROLS Direct drive buttons for most frequently used controls. Easy-access menu adjustments for other controls.

The Apex is my first detector and I have a lot about it to learn yet. That said I have hunted a late 1800s farm site that’s a place where many have metal detected before. While many of the high tones are gone now, I have found some interesting things with the Apex that I thought should have been easy enough for someone to locate. I believe this unit is a powerful tool for someone who may not want to spend twice as much but still have solid functionality. A big plus, after two heart surgeries, is its lightweight. I am very pleased.
So far I really like the Apex, I have only been out three times and have found three rings and one silver war nickel, and four dollars in clad. One of the rings as gold with three diamonds. This is my first metal detector and like the exercise I’m getting. Thanks for selling me this fine detector.
Great detector but I didn't really appreciate them putting the digging tool inside the apex box. It made my new detector arrive slightly damaged.
After an exhausting but fulfilling research of metal detectors, I excitedly ordered the Garrett APEX detector from High Plains. I've been on several salt water beach hunts so far and this detector is awsome. Even found a 14k gold ring with multiple diamonds on my first day out. The multi-frequency is great. Garrett is back in the game with this one.
