Default Question

I have a Garrett GTP 1350 that I like. Should I pay $150 for a bigger coil or try the Garrett AT pro? Any advise would be great. I also have a Fisher CZ 6A I'm still trying to learn how to use.
Thanks

Go with the AT Pro, you get much more detector that is way more versatile and waterproof. The AT Pro is a great all around machine that flat out performs.

Buy the bigger coil,,,your learning curve not as steep.

I personally don't think bigger coils help much,,can also hurt.

You can find a good used detector (another model) at reasonable price.

Btw,,,I think Choppadude's AT pro just sold at a reasonable price-- nice pristine looking unit.

I would wait and get what I wanted even if buying used,,,sometimes when we are on the search for a used one (specific.) model,,,,we can't find,,,and pull trigger on something else.
And when you do you do,,you know what happens???
The very model detector used will pop up at reasonable price,,,and you are saying to yourself,,,SHUCKS???
