Back to the..GTI 1500 .. love it
The only way to beat the GTI 1500 is with the GTI 2500 but it is the same as the 1500 it is a tie then. I would recommend the Garrett detectors to my friend's and every one. A good honest company and a very good product. I have the Garrett Pro Pointer and Scorpion and will get a Garrett water detector. Would you say that I am back with Garrett I tried a lot of detectors and went back to Garrett. Oh yes all my best finds were with a Garrett detector. I am sorry I switched but now I know Garrett makes the best.......

Unbelievably accurate and just plain powerfull !!
After receiving the garrett gti 1500 I really was shocked it sure didn't look like a cheepo by any standards and when I put it together and noticed it was a little heavier then I'm used too, but I could hip mount the battery pack that just reassured me even more that I was in for a treat.
I had read the instructions over and over and really couldn't believe how easy the detector was too operate but in my mind I still wasn't convinced of its operating status so on my first outing I set up the gti 1500 in coins mode but changed the tone to my likeing but that's about all I did.
It was more a learning session, I was digging everything except iron so I was digging everything that the disc would allow a beep on even one way.
I was vary surprised at how the discrimination was so tight in fact I hardly heard the detector at all and often found myself checking it with clad in my pocket and it would be fine. After several outings I just gotta say wow I'm finding wheaty's at 10 inches and finding square nails at over 10 inches and when it comes too silver coins you better turn those head phones down because they will blast your ears off! for real, also I would recommend taking it to any so called hunted out sites because when you get done its not going to seem hunted out garrentied! I know because I have done just that.
Well I also gotta give garrett a standing applause on this one, they obviously did there home work! Well done garrett you have found a true garrett user forever.

Garrett 1500 metal has no escape!
Don't hesitate to purchase this machine as it will pick out ALL targets and you can eliminate any junk target you choose for no more false alarms.
The imaging feature proves it has the edge over Minelab an I'm sure it must have the same performance as it rarely goes stays silent. Well what are you waiting for...p.s the GTI 1500 is for sale on the net for £380!!! What a bargain try Amazon and cut out the middle man.. Regards Ry.

It Actually Does What Garrett Says!
Within 10 mins. of hunting with the Garrett GTI 1500, I rec'vd a repeatable Belltone. Using the imaging feature it showed a coin sized object at 3 inches. It turned out to be a 1950 silver dime!!! Further searching resulted in my uncovering a memorial penny. There is no question that the imaging feature feature worked as advertized and saved me a lot time from digging all the trash I've dug in the past. It was fooled a few times like all TIDs. But over all, I don't know how I will ever be able to hunt without the imaging feature.
I not only love the imaging feature, but also the ability for me to sweep eaither fast or slow without a reduction in performance. I also love the FAST recovery time of this Detector. I can't report on the overall depth capabilities of this detector, but here in AZ, most targets are not beyond 6 inches so I'm sure it will be more than adequate. I have read reports of finds at impressive depths with the 1500 but I always feel depth is often determined by the target, soil conditions, as well as the experience of the user.
I also enjoy the simplicity of using the GTI 1500.
A factor a lot of buyers don't give much consideration to is how well the detector fits there personality and style of hunting. I once owned a Minelab Quattro. I was amazed at some of the deeper targets I found with it. But the slow sweep speed and slow recovery of this detector drove me nutts. I'm not knocking the Quattro, I'm just making a point that it did not suit my personality where as the GTI fits me perfectly.
Thank you Mr. Garrett for a wonderful detector. By the way, I am not a dealer.
