For totlot hunting and looking around the park the F5 is light and quick. Most of my hunting is at totlots and school areas where coins and occaisional jewelry is located.

For when I am looking to find some older deep coins and other stuff, the AT Pro does much better.

Usually not getting much depth is because of not getting a real good ground balance.

A few times hunting with the AT Pro ( and the Fisher F5) I couldn't get much depth at all..just getting surface coins. I ground balanced again and started getting coins at 6-7 inches.
I ground balance once or twice more, after the initial time, within the 1st 10 minutes of searching so I know it is good.

I see you like the F 5 a lot. I never had the F 5 , but used the cz 's & F75 for a long time. The f series are very good detector in my book. I have had a lot of difference detectors and the fisher work the best for me. In clad I have picked up over $10,000 most with the fishers. Keep up the good work.
