Most helpful review for Fisher F-19

Good for relic and gold.
Great metal detector. Deep on relics, 19kHz. Also very sensitive to gold nuggets, and rejects hot rocks very well. Not the best on the beach. It also works well on GB and f75 coils. Good in hot ground conditions, versatile, and very durable. Locks onto targets very quickly. Deepest target was a 19 gram gold ring at 17". Picks up 1 grain of gold at 3-5" depending on ground conditions.

Most helpful review for Garrett GTI 2500

Review; Pro's and con's
Having used the GTI 2500 for a year here are some thoughts:

Good depth (yeah coins at 8" is nice..)
Fair battery life

Sizing is nice
(helps the newbie, can use pinpoint to "size" a target as well)

Big LCD screen (helps those who have poor sight)
Good pinpoint


Over priced (yes, really only basic adjustments)

Sound "quality" is bad
(sounds are almost the same)

The headphones that come with sucks

Discrimination is not good for Europe/Sweden
(only practical for USA/North America??)

Coils are heavy.(9.5" and 12.5", epoxy filled?)

Note: it is more suited as a relic machine as it SUCKS for coins.
(you almost have to dig everything)
