Well the Beach was fine!

Went to the beach finally and located almost four dollars in clad (regular
coins). Also located small staple (iron) at about 3.5 inches. The GTP
1350 truly amazes me at the depth and smallest of size of items it can
detect. I didn't locate anything in the wet sand although I buried coins
to test it, and the unit worked fine (stable as when on dry sand). Didn't
take it into the water though (cold). I'm still very impressed with the
GTP 1350 and have located several great finds since my last review
(including a 100 yr old pocket watch at 10" deep, Silver ring embedded with
garnet and topaz stones, and a Tiffany and Co. Locket). So if mister
Garrett can get me up and running on one of his units in a month and a half
time, I think this machine would make a great alround metal detector for

Coin O Matic
February 16, 2007
I've just started detecting this month and can say My only expierence is
being familiar with cable locating equipment up until now. I found the GTP
1350 to be a simple turn on and go system with some nice feature useually
found on higher end equipment (notching, audio tones, auto ground
balancing, preset modes, icon read out). The Target Profiler is really
nice if your in a hurry and would like to hit only coins or dig small
targets, (eliminates cans or Larger targets quickly but you still might
get a tab or two). When you hit a coin it just about slaps you upside your
head with a "cha ching" that any child could understand.
purchased mine used and made my decision to purchase due to the reviews on
this page. They made a believer out of me! Although I still haven't taken
it to the beach though, and other detectorist think it may not make the
grade. I'll report later to see what I find. Don't chase false signals by
wearing steel tip shoes. 8) Finds: Wheaties, Pennies, dimes, quarters,
ring, earing, a gun knife, marbels, bottle, dog tag, bullets/spent,
assorted other goofy collectables all in +or- 14 hours of detecting over 6
days. I'd give the unit a thumbs up, Rick

Good as DFX

I am fairly new to metal detecting, But I have a friend that goes out with
me often with a whites DFX, when we find a target we call the other over
and compare reading on the machines, they have always called junk junk, and
when it comes to coins they both say the same thing and the 1350 image is
always right on, the Whits is about 400-500 bucks more, VERY happy with my
choice in the Garrett 1350

I am very impressed with the 1350. I have been using it for about 6 months
( I have been dectecting for 13 months) and this weekend I found my 33rd
ring. I can only hunt for about 4 hours a week, but have found $275 in
coins and 33 rings including my first diamond ring. Thanks Garrett.

After pinpointing a target I always found it, even if it was a pull tab.
Unfortunately pull tabs and gold rings have the same signature. One way to
find targets quickly is to use two trowels: one metal for hard ground, and
pour the dirt into a plastic one to wave over the coil to let you know when
you have it. After locating the scoop slowly shake the dirt out untill you
find the target.

The 1350 is a winner!

Everything I've heard about the 1350 is dead on! This is one great machine!
The learning curve is so easy...is't almost non-existant. Andy's review is
absolutely true. By running in the jewelry mode, you will pick up more
depth. Make sure sensitivity is at max, and you'll be diggin' Chinese
coins! This is my favorite ID detector!!

This is the most user friendly detector on the market.great on the beach!
was right on with everything ive found.it likes silver and it goes deep!!
batteries last a long time too.you wont go wrong with a GTP1350. good price
Easy to use detector
November 26, 2004
Let me start what to do first before you
go out in the field with this nice detector.
Here are my tips:
1. Set the
threshold to the point where you can barely here it.
2. Tape the coil cable straight up the lower
(See my picture)
3. After you did number 2 run sensitivity at max.
detector is not stable back down a notch.
4. Run it in jewelry mode for max depth.
you run it in coin mode you loose some depth.
5. Get the 4.5 inch coil for it.That coil will give
you great target separation and id around old houses.
6.Make sure you always have spare
battery holder.That is the only weakness of the Garrett.
7.If the id jumps for iron to coin...it's
If it jumps in the coin range it's a deep coin most of the time.
Garrett GTP 1350 is the same model like the GTAx 1250 but the 1350 has
think that profiling isn't really necessary, because you can tell by the
length of the tone that size the
target is.I don't like that you turn profiling on every time you press
pinpoint; because you have to press it
again to turn it of.
It uses different tone in profiling mode than in disc mode...why...it's not
that profiling is just a help if you hunt a place where targets are not to
(Beach).In trash you can't use it because the coil sees to many targets at
once and the reading is off.
The GTP 1350 can size with ALL coils unlike the GTIs.
Is the Garrett deep ??? Yes if you
follow my tips.
It is as deep as every other top of the line detector out there.I compared
it to the
Whites MXT and can say the Garrett hits better on silver and copper, but
the MXT is a little hotter on
nickels.The Garrett runs more quiet.
The garrett is well balanced and fun to use.You don't have
to read the manual every time you use it, because it is easy to use.There
are no outside controls you
could accidently turn.
Target ID is right on if you use the right coil for the area you hunt
can come in a little higher some time, so accept one more notch up.
I liked the 1250 better,
because i don't need the profiling.Performance is the same.
