    On weight-

    I'm guessing between 4 and 5 pounds, but the balance is perfect, can balance the grip on one finger and the coil is bout 2 in from ground, can even swing it that way, if you swing too fast, you need to hold the coil down, will come right up, no stress on anything, and with grip angle you just let arm hang free with detector dangling, don't even bend the elbow-COOL.
    depth on bout all coins runs around 8" or 9", buckle size stuff around 20", deep enough for ME:bthumb:

    OK, I know this is an old post but ........... here's my 2 cents.

    About 20 years ago my 1st detector was a Garrett Master Hunter CX II.
    Great machine. And I agree with you, the balance was PERFECT !!!
    I think that extra bit of weight was from that heavy battery pack.
    But over time mine simply quit working, so I now have a At Pro.
    Another great machine by Garrett.

    my 2nd detector back in the early 80's was a Garrett Deepseeker. I found a lot of relics with it. I now have the Garrett Master CX which is an updated version of the Deepseeker. It is a great machine and I've dug minnie balls as much as nearly a foot deep, although most are far more nearer the surface. Garrett in my opinion, still makes great detectors. I have never owned an Ace, but I've heard an awful lot of good about this detector.

    Yep,, I have the Master Hunter CXIII, and you are right about the weight and the balance. She has rewarded me with many a coin. It was because of the quality of Garret's detectors that I leaned towards buying the AT PRO. (I also own an AT4). She is still working today after 17 years. (I purchased it in 95), but the AT PRO is my primary machine.:cool:
