Check Out The Deteknix Scuba Tector!

If you’re a fan of metal detecting underwater and you want to go deep while you’re down there, the Detenix Scuba Tector might be an option for you.

It might look like a spatula, but it’s actually a powerful tool to have in your arsenal while detecting.

This metal detector can be submerged up to 200 feet underwater.

It has a rechargeable battery, and when it’s fully charged, it provides 10 hours of continuous use. That’s longer than you can dive anyway.

So you can take your dive and still have plenty of time left for searching shallow ground when snorkeling.

Garrett is known as one of the heavy hitters in the metal detecting field so when they unveil a new machine, people take notice.

If you’re a fan of detectors that incorporate the latest and greatest technology, you may want to check out the AT Max.

What Features Does The AT Max Have?

The AT Max has built-in Z-Lynk wireless technology that drastically cuts back on the delay many detectors have when you use them. When you’re waving your ordinary detector around, you’ll hear a beep after you’ve passed over the target. Then you take your detector and try to zero in on the target.

With the AT Max however, you’ll hear the beeps from your target when you’re still right over top of it. That will cut down on search time and the situations some detectorists have where they have to expand their plug if they are off an inch or two away from where their target really is.
