Re: AT Pro on the way
I have used the silver umax, golden umax, vaquero, and tejon in the tesoro family. They have a unique language, and they are simple beep dig machines that are very capable if you pay attention and really learn their intricacies.
That being said I have also owned the V3i, Etrac,F75,Whites TDI and Fisher 1280X aquanaut....with the last two being the only ones without VDI. Numbers give you a better idea of what is in the ground, and for a beginner I think they will help her be able to make better informed choices of when to dig. Also the AT Pro is affordable, and from what I have seen and read about it from videos and other forums, she will be able to understand it better based on what she see's on the screen.
I guess the biggest thing is that in the little time we do get out to detect, I want that time to be quality time, and digging higher probability good targets versus all the aluminum cans and tractor parts...as most of out detecting is relic hunting...if that makes and sense.
Back out West...home at last!
