Default Getting word Garrett has 2 new releases or something new

Folks can look around.
Based on what I have heard.
Not earth shattering.
Sticker shock maybe.

Here’s one video showing something.

Another video showing 2 new editions.

This is nothing new, from what I've heard, they are yet again repackaging old tech. Duck dynasty Apex and AT max's! Just what we were all asking for!

Yep, and some of us were aware yesterday when videos were posted.

Someone needs a faster source

Garrett has already realized that the laws of physics, and the reality of coin shooting have already been met.

That's why their focus has been on metal detection security.

Really? This is not new? The duck call is too funny.

Anyone that has used the latest Garrett tech knows that there is PLENTY of room for improvement. If they could create a SMF with capabilities similar to the equinox, D2, and legend, they would at least have a hand in this card game. I highly doubt garrett is folding in the sport division though. I thought I heard something about an AT Apex or something along those lines quite awhile ago. They make a great product with some of the best customer service in the biz, but they have had little to no answers for the competition. Many have been patiently waiting, including myself for a response that may or may not be coming...

I didn't word that correctly cellrdwellr.

More specifically, Garrett has had plenty of time to introduce a submersible SMF, yet they haven't.

I'm thinking it's because they know they're too late to the game, and can't come up with anything groundbreaking, or anything that will able to compete with the likes of Nokta Makro, XP, and Minelab. As such, it seems they have given up, and have focused on their security division.

This camouflage, duck call thing, is to me, absolutely pathetic. Everything indicates that they have given up on metal detectors.

I know a while back Garrett acquired a new president of the company. With the passing of Mrs. Garrett and the changes within the company, my guess is just growing pains associated with the lifecycle of their products. I do wish we really had a good american made detector that could compete with the multifreqency flagships.

Garretts is well on their way. However, like Tesoro, I'm sure they have their fan base who will continue to support them, which is fine.

Years ago there was a discussion about Garretts being "Made in America", to which I'd posted a pic of the speaker in an Ace 250 clearly stamped "Made in Mexico". Assembled/Built is 2 different things.

I guess Garrett expects to sell a huge number of detectors just because they are camo?? ok, whatever.

Hurrrah! Now you can have a detector that you can lay down in the field and never see it again..... Then, you can go buy another camo machine...

Lots of theories on why Garrett is releasing a new signature series metal detector. Has anyone ever worked for a company where they have some surplus stock left over that they would like to move out to create room for some now products? Getting creative to do so is the first step.

So they have an overstock of their previous 2 releases, sounds about right. I'm actually starting believe they have turned most of their attention to the security division, where there is way less competition. They didnt release any new products in 2021:

Garrett has obtained the pinnacle of detecting technology and all they need to do is add coloring to the detector to satisfy the masses.
BTW Pinnacle is the name for their SMF detector coming out soon.
Sheesh! I could get in trouble for leaking this info!

Well put….it does seem they’re late to any game that’s been played as of late. Putting a signal into the ground isn’t really the problem, though there are limits of which most know. The real issue is in the processing itself, and conveying the results to the operator in an intelligible way. It’s a tough thing to do, and it’s possible that Garrett simply doesn’t have the people on board at this moment to go to any “next level”. So in order to sell SOMETHING….well, we’re seeing what we’re seeing.
