Garrett Axiom Metal Detector

Last month Garrett Launched their new gold prospecting machine, the Axiom. Equipped with Garretts ‘Ultra-Pulse’ technology, the Axiom promises gold prospectors an advanced independent dual-channel ground balance system that covers the full range of mineralization, from heavily mineralized magnetic ground to saltwater, and everything in between.

Garrett’s Axiom detector includes built-in technology to make it highly sensitive on even the smallest sub-gram weight gold nuggets. Users have a full range of adjustments to suit their hunting styles, including: four search mode options; four ground track options; two audio tone options; and six searchcoil options. Axiom is revolutionary in that the unit is very lightweight, is rechargeable and software upgradeable, and is priced far below the standard price of competitive high-end pulse induction gold detectors.
