Hi i bought a garrett ace 300i and was just looking for a bit of advice. I bought it to see if i would like the hobby and now im addicted. I want to get my first upgrade but i dont know wether to upgrade the coil to a nel tornado or just go straight to upgrading the machine. Ive had the garrett ace for about 2 months now and its been brilliant thats why im wondering if i should just upgrade the coil.
Any advice would be appreciated.
Thanks > Tony

That's a hard one, if you get the Nel coil you will wish you had gone for the AT Pro and if you get the AT you will be thinking about a Nel coil for in in no time :-\  but personally I would up grad the machine.
Have you thought about a T2?

I have just done a short search about them and everyone seems to think the t2 is a big step up from the at pro, have you had any experience with both machines and what would be your choice?

I have both machines  and a Whites V3i, the T2 is my first choice and the AT would be my last.

Hi budge1 thanks for your advice why do you think the t2 is better than the at pro if you do mind me asking?

Hi Tony, I get more good finds with the T2 than with any other detector I have used and the T2 loves silver, having said that I do think some detectors suits some people and not others and the only way you will know for sure is to try, if you are going to a dig that I am going to you can have a go with my AT for a day.

No problem Tony, the T2 is the simplest machine to use , have a look on you tube.
