    They are both excellent detectors. The F75 will potentially go deeper, and it is extremely sensitive to small items. The AT Pro opens new areas due to it's waterproof capabilities.

    Give me a call or PM if I can answer any questions for you.

    Hi,

    I don't own either machine so no bias in my answer. If you plan to do a lot of wet detecting where you need a waterproof machine then the Garrett would be the way to go. If most of your detecting will be on dry ground or where you'll just get the coil and lower shaft wet I would purchase the Fisher F75 From all the research I've done the Fisher is a fantastic machine. And for me with the Fisher coming with a 5 year warranty and the Garrett a 2 year warranty, that's a big selling point to me.

    I think you would be pleased with either machine once you mastered them. But the Fisher will allow you to do more, and again that extra 3 years of warranty is very nice! Let us know what you decide.

    They are both great machines. The Fisher may be a bit easier on the swinging arm due to better ergonomics. But if you're planning water detecting where you may get the control box submerged even accidently, the AT Pro is the one. So, I think what everyone is saying is go for the one that suits your hunting locale. If I can help you, just PM or call. I love to discuss metal detecting.

    my first hunt with the garrett at pro
    its been atleast 20 years since i been coin hunting
    using the garrett at pro is like cheating compare to what i was using then, (whites coin master)
    i love this machine, i cant believe how deep it goes, i found a 22.hull or case about 10 in deep.
    with a dime, and it was still going off.
    got the machine yesterday,3-25-2014, and my first hunt i found 1.59, (4 quarters, 5 dimes, 9 pennies, (2 of them where wheat pennies, 1940,1951) in about 2 hours, ( very cold today, 29`)
    just trying out new things with this detector and learning about the different modes.
    thanks again for everyone's advice
    love this machine

    You gave us nothing to go on.
    What kind of detecting?
    Coin shooting?
    Relic?
    Prospecting?
    Beach?
    Casual or every day hard core?

    Where?
    When?

    The Garrett is the better all-around unit.
    A range of coils can help the Fisher be more casual friendly.

    Hehehe...
    And my opinion is the F70 is the happy marriage of both.

    Not a option, however, if we stick to the OP's question.
    You'll get it all. Or you won't.
    Someday, you'll die and leave it behind anyway.
    Act accordingly.

    I considered the f75, the AT Pro, and the f70.

    Settled on the f70.

    Great price/performance ratio.

    It took some getting used to, but I've really come to appreciate it's strengths now that I understand it pretty well.

    Ive never owned a F75, but I do use the ATP and I'm very happy with it. Like anything, it takes a little bit to REALLY figure out what its telling you. These days, it seems like people like upgrading machines every month before they even understand how the old one worked. Most those people have zero patience and expect the machine to do all the work for them. It takes some common sense and knowledge of the area, as well as understanding what the machine is telling you.

    Im over trying to give advice on what machine is better, it only causes people to point out that that ATP is a big seller and that its overrated...I just know im very happy with my finds over the last few years, which have increased every year.

    Best of luck!
