Sticking pennies together for one of these , leaning towards the Makro . Any pros and cons from users of both machines ?

I have the At Pro and I cant fault it. Its a good machine once you learn how to use it plus its 100% Waterproof, As for the Makro racer I haven't a clue  ;D , But what I would suggest is look for videos on you tube  ;)

Can't comment on the Makro but i expect its pretty good,At pro being using for a couple of months now and am very pleased with as with most machines there will be a learning curve so i guess it depends on what you need most,At pro will be an easy(and joyfull) transition from an ace250,if you're not hitting the beaches a lot,the AT will most likely win inland.Whatever you buy I think the solution is to spend as much time searching with it as possible,The machine will make life easier but its the effort that pays off.
