It seems like the well-known manufacturer of coils to the most known metal detectors on the market, added something more to its production line: coils for a new metal detector for 2017; The Garrett AT MAX! The photo shows the AT MAX with the NEL Tornado coil. I think that with such coils as NEL Tornado, Garrett AT MAX became even deeper, but it did not add much weight because...
