Garrett has it's loyal customers just like all companies out there. People will continue to support them no matter what they release.

My opinion and it is just that....Us beach hunters were waiting for a SMF for decades. Since the day of putting Sovereigns in a box. Those of you who watched Grave digger Max videos years ago probably remember his Explorer head unit in a box. Sure we had the Excal, but it is clunky, heavy, expensive to mod, and more suited for water than a beach. And it has no screen. Garrett released the AT Pro. A waterproof detector that just didn't cut it on a salt water beach because it wasn't SMF. What did they release next? The AT Max. A missed opportunity. The Windows Vista in the detecting world. Now they finally release the Apex and guess what. Not waterproof! People can claim that Garrett is not asleep. Probably true. But then those years that went by were a missed opportunity to gain the admiration of salt water beach hunters.
