That's probably a good piece of equipment, but the AT-2005 is the gold standard. For a little bit more, you can have the AT-2005. It is excellent.

We do not have the AT-2005 on our site, but if you decide to go that route we would be at $890.96 with the board member discount.

Another one that we move a ton of is the Ideal 61-958. I cannot give the discount on that price, but you will not find it under $1000 at very many places.

Boss supplied me with an Ideal 61-954 to as part of my tool package....I love it...Fairly basic, but works absolutely wonderful....Just make sure you grab a different ground than what you are tracing.

I prefer Amprobe tracers myself (from previous experience). I recently purchased an AT-2005 on ebay for $500 and it was in mint condition. I did a lot of research before I made my decision. Once you figure out what you want ebay is the place to look first in my opinion.
