My 3 c3nts

I bought a Gti1500 back around 2002. First modern digital target ID detector. I was super thrilled with it, dug coins left and right at one schoolyard. Imaging worked for me. I liked it so much I bought the Gti2500 a year later. And gave the 1500 to my wife. She liked it as well, her favorite detector. She found a Franklin half the first time out, another hunt found a half dime.
The only thing I didn't like was the coil was a bit large and they didn't make any smaller Imaging coils.
I sold the 2500, excellent detector, wasn't too much impressed with it over the 1500. So I took a gamble on a White's MXT and bought the smaller oval coil for it, didn't like the 950 coil. The MXT was a far superior detector over the 1500 and 2500.

So I moved to Georgia from NY, took the 1500, 2500 and the MXT. Sold the Garretts they just could not get any depth at all in the red mineralized clay soil. Wondered at the time, why there were no Garrett dealers but one or two I recall in Georgia. Then I knew.

If the 1500 works for your friend, its still a good detector to get into the hobby with if bought cheap. Then graduate to something newer and better for a bit more.....

By the way, John of Edmonton on the Garrett Findmall forum used to find tons of stuff with his 1500. Very popular at the time.

I agree Sven. The GTA 1250, GTP 1350, and the 1500 and 2500 GTI's worked ...

Nothing wrong with a 'basic black' detector or two in your outfit ...
