Paddy McGowan: Why did u use the Ace 250 And not the Ace 350(Euro Ace) Because that would
pick a gold nugget out of the dirt.The 250 is not good for gold but the 350
is. I love the AT Pro.And the Euro Ace 350
Bearkat4160: @damianicus - The video was to show that the AT Pro will be a good
prospecing detector as it was mainly designed for relic hunting. Don't
watch if you don't need a video like that.
Bearkat4160: @MrGoldpicker...about 1.5 - 2" depth in ground.
Stillwater900: @bearkat4160 Does it only pick up gold?
micmoable: Is the Gold Scorpion a more complicated machine to set up and use than the
AT GOLD ? How hard is ground balancing the scorpion?
waferninja: Nice vid, I will be picking up an AT pro soon.
docatomics: ...be super if you found the extra time to do a live depth test on you next
prospecting outing ~may that day be one in your favor, never too soon ! I
am trying to decide between the purchase of the Stinger or the AT Pro in
regards to gold prospecting tradeoffs, especial with flour caches which is
what is most likely in my neighbourhood, if at all, given historical finds
d1g1man: Great video, thank you! I am curious, what was the VDI on the ATP for the
nugget? I could not make it out?
Silver Prepper: Great video, I subd....Love my ATPRO!
Peter Abbott: You really need to state the operating frequency of the machines , then you
and others will understand why 250 at 6 khz at Pro 15 khz Stinger 16 khz
does make big difference , what actually are trying to say, no disrespect
Ace 250 is an entry level general purpose machine not a gold prospecting,
AT pro 15 khz close to your stinger ,but a rubbish machine anyway designed
to be submerged ,not good on the wet beach submerged or otherwise .
P1r4t3Pr0duct10n5: ive just pay for my gold stinger the other day so should be getting it in
the mail next week, im not very disapointed that its old tech because im
just starting out and am very excite about it lol back in 1991 im sure it
was one of the best out at the time ;-)
fuugon: @zekehooper did you buy the scorpion????and if you did how is it???
El Guapo De Woppo: Excellent Point... an Air Test is only ONE indicator. Once on top of the
ground or more challenging yet... into the ground, that is more of a true
test. The Ace 250 designed as a coin hunter/relic hunter lacks a ground
balance control so it is at a disadvantage. Your video illustrates that....
good interesting video. Golden State Metal Detectors.
ThailandVenture: Use something other than YOUR HAND... the detector will pick up your hand
alone without the gold in it !!!!! so will the others, thats why a plastic
scoop is best used..... IMO !!
Bearkat4160: The Scorpion operates at 15 khz not 16.
micmoable: I would have to go with the AT PRO---I HATE manual ground balancing---isn't
the Gold scorpion hard to keep ground balanced?
frenteperiodistico: Very nice you video
Len K: ahhhh, all of them r only sort of ok on shallow ground, nugget would have
to b very close to surface, waste of time....waste of money, your coil waz
nearly hitting the little nugget to get a signal wanker.....lol
Bearkat4160: The AT Gold is the way to go if you are looking at either...way better
detector and newer technology.
Bearkat4160: @buddy85442 - Not the AT Pro, but the AT Gold is a great alternative to the
goldbug 2. Better discrimination and iron audio.
Bearkat4160: @pkrska - Many people use the Scopion, but I suspect since it is very old
tech (1991) it is not as popular in the goldfields as other newer machines.
I had just purchased the AT Pro at the time of the video and wanted to show
viewers that the AT Pro will pick up tiny niggets just like the Scorpion
does. They both have there place in the nuggets hunting world.
tallwill38: Great review well done and to the point.
MongoTheLloyd: The AT Pro is a fine alternative, especially if you get it with the 5x8
coil option. The smaller coil is for hunting smaller objects like gold
nuggets. The Pro is versatile; it can be used for nugget hunting, and does
relic and coinshooting with ease. This video shows the 8.5x11 coil, which
is not the ideal configuration for gold nugget hunting. With the smaller
5x8 coil, there is little difference between the Pro and the Gold, with
respect to hunting nuggets.
52969RST: looking for a good all around detectoe for a good price is the ATPRO the
theepicdude bott: At pro is better it is water proof and good me and my dad was looking in
our back yard we found 5 meatless cans and I'm like let's clean up yards
Ardenwolfe: Thank you for this video. I recently discovered that my Ace also doesn't
pick up small and thin pieces of gold jewelry as well. If it's sold, say
like a ring, no worries. But tiny earrings, necklaces, and the like it
zekehooper: @fuugon No..I'm still learning the 250.
zekehooper: thanks for the vid. I was thinking I could use the 250 for gold but you
just showed me I couldn't. I need to get the Scorpian for that.
HowardOnTheFly: yes the scorp is a great detector only reason im upgrading is i need more
options in my hunting :)
Banconslash: ma la piastra DD più piccola dello scorpions concentra più densamente la
frequenza,differente la piastra DD dell' AT Pro essendo più grande tende a
rendere minore la densità della frequenza.Grazie ..è un buon test e l'ATpro
a mio vedere ha fatto un buon lavoro paragonato quasi allo stesso livello
dello scorpion che è dedicato alla ricerca dell'oro.
fuugon: @HowardOnTheFly how is your scorp is it a goode detector, depth????
MrGoldpicker: just a question how far down would it pick up the gold nugget underground
fuugon: @morph1554 hey i want to buy a scorpion, tell me the truth please is it
truth that it is hard but very hard to ground balance this machine ??
buschbeer100: Thanks for posting this vid. Cleared a lot of questions I had.
skateRnystrom: how many nuggets have u found with the stinger? how long did it take you to
get use to the stinger and finally find a nugget?what mode was best for
finding the gram nuggets?have u had any luck with the jewelry mode with
gold?what setting is best for finding nuggets with high mineral ground?
that nugget u have i remember dropping it thanks for finding it.
jessgo33: The at pro sounds smoth.. cool..
Biffbradford: Very interesting. I did find a 10k gold ring with my ACE 250 about 1 inch
down in low grass. It came up as a pop top but I dug it and was very happy!
trigas55: Nice review of these detectors. Thanks for sharing!
backwacker: Good show !
Bearkat4160: @52969RST...one of the best!
Jack'sAdventure's: i using my at pro now with the 5x8 coil on it, picks up tiny gold nice and
easily with that coil. perfect for gold sniffing
micmoable: Thanks-----I have heard that some folks are having major problems with
their Garrett Ace series detectors-----but haven't heard anyone complain
about AT PRO or AT GOLD detectors. I like the idea of being able to use it
in fresh water creeks/rivers, etc.
Peter Krska: @bearkat4160 Old technology? Seems the price doesn't want to go down to an
'Ole piece of technology price' Problem with todays technology is that it's
made of plastic, cheap parts that burn out and usually does stand the test
of time or abuse. Old stuff always was good for abuse: took a licking and
kept on ticking! Dose the Stinger also work for treasure hunting or beach
hunting? I figure that it should hit on any metal and since Gold is one of
it's specialties, it will also do silver?!
Bearkat4160: Watch again...you will see my point in the first one minute and 20 seconds
of the video.
zekehooper: @fuugon The 250 was cheaper and fit my needs better. THe scorpion is manly
a gold detecter. Is that whaty you are after?
52969RST: @bearkat4160 thanks really appreciate the reply!!! will be getting one for
xmas thanks again!!
HowardOnTheFly: ive had a scorp for a few years now and intend to upgrade to the AP pro as
soon as im able very nice mid range system for all area,water land
gold,coins ect all in one unit.good vid man :)
Peter Krska: The only videos showing the Garrett Scorpion Gold Stinger online are from
the store owner or from the manufacterer. I have yet to find anyone
actually using the Garrett Scorpion Gold Stinger. Is there a reason for
this? Does that mean that no one actualy is using the Garrett Scorpion Gold
Stinger? Your video is great -only one that I've seen using the Scorp, but
not in actual use and it seems as though you are trying to push the AT Pro
rather than using the Stinger. Again, is there a reason?
