Everything a good detector should be.
May 26, 2013I have found a lot of items below the six inch mark. I had a more expensive detector from Garrett and eventually stuck with the 750. The nicest item I have ever found was a 3 x 4.5 22k 58 gram gold plaque below the six inch level. I would never buy from a different manufacturer. I recently sold this item for $3000.00.
Max Depth: 9 inches on US quarter

This machine will get the job done. period!
August 03, 2009Don't get me wrong I don't think all Garrett machines are fantastic, had a GTI-2500 that was just not right. Got this detector off of Ebay used and sent it to Garrett for an upgrade, update and exchanged the old coil for a new one(they give a 40% discount for your old coil)plus a little cash. This machine smokes! They coil I got was the coil that comes on the new GTAx 550. The GTAx 750 with this coil goes deeper than the NEW GTAx 550! Don't belive me call Brad at Garrett and ask him yourself. This detector even gives my new Tesoro Cibola a run for it's money.

Not that bad
June 06, 2007I have been using my 750 for about 3-4 years now as an entry level detector for myself. I have found numerous things below the 4" depth most of which were very strong targets. The pinpoint function is very helpful in narrowing down the final search area. It is an overall very good detector but, the "only" problem I have, and it probably is my fault for lack of know-how/experience, is working beaches with high salt content. I have only used it 3 times on beaches and had trouble picking things out. As far as on land, this detector works as good as the big dogs. I don't believe this detector is still available but I have a friend who is considering purchasing it's predecessor the GTAX 550. I'll letcha know how that turns out. Until then, happy hunting!!!!!

Ok for coin shooting
June 10, 2006Hello, i had my garret for 4 years and i have yet to find anything of value more than 4 inches deep. It can easily find clad with a good pinpionting system, but it can't comprehend what is deeper. This is perfect for getting at the modern coins and is pretty good about tuning out trash....but for those who are serios, get something else.
