Iíve been detecting off and on since around 2000 and I finally have some more time to actually get serious about it. I traded in my old Tesoro Cutlass II for a Garrett AT Max and canít wait for the snow to melt and the ground to thaw to test it out.

Hope it melts soon, for you! In the meantime, set it low sensitivity and go out and detect the shallow snow on the tubing hills. Or high sensitivity if the snow is deep!
