Received an update from the ever jovial John Howland today, and this time around he talks about a forthcomng comparison test of the AT Pro. Of course he also added in a few “arkie” tales and articles just to keep them on their toes (and piss them off). I don’t think he will get tickets to their convention this year….just a hunch.

ANTICIPATION & DISAPPOINTMENT
Well, the ole 6000di Series 2, Hipmount I was waiting for finally arrived…..INOPERABLE!
The detector looked new, but the plastic meter cover was broken, and the meter did did ot work. Had to push battery pack into the unit to get a threshold (foam missing) but could not get a coin to respond. I am amazed that when people pack something like this, they put the control box on the bottom of the box, and everything else on top, not to mention it came with one of those old blue and heavy carry bags which would have made a great cushion.
The knobs/pots also were extremely hard to turn, and the disc knob did not work at all. I have decided to send it back to the factory in hopes that they can fix it. The seller has a great track record, and has agreed to pay repair charges (if it can be fixed). So back to the post office, and another wait. The joys of online shopping!
