Fisher F4 Metal Detector

Fisher F4 Metal Detector

Product Review (submitted on March 24, 2016):
I have owned the Fisher F4 for 3 months now and am regretting the purchase. Since I am new to the hobby, I figured that spending $400 on a detector would sort through trashy areas better than this machine. The ground balancing knob is too loose and turns out of adjustment often. The pinpoint mode is very tricky and often has me digging for 30 minutes in the wrong direction. Aluminum cans or lids turn up as silver on the read-out as does copper tubing and hot wheels cars. I have gone through 3 pairs of 9volt batteries and still can't get used to the machine. I have watched videos, read the manual, and practiced repeatedly. I have found several clad coins as well as a silver quarter and two silver dimes but I am tired of digging aluminum and re-ground balancing this machine 3-5 times an hour. I have a blast using the machine, I just expected more. I would recommend doing more research in the $400 range before you settle on this machine. I can't give a recommendation for the Fisher F4 but I can recommend Kellyco for your purchase source. They have the best prices on the internet, and the customer service is fantastic. I give this detector 3 stars and believe that there is better out there for the same money.
