Fisher F44 11DD Metal Detector
- Product Review (submitted on September 30, 2018):
- Between February 13, 2018 through September 30, 2018, I estimate that I have found over 300 coins, plus two silver earrings, one silver pendant, a brass cross with Jesus, metal toys, whistles, buttons, bullets/cartridges, junk and of course the normal bottle caps and pull tabs. I say five star because I have continual success with my F44. It is extremely light weight and only uses two double AA batteries. I did add a coil cover to protect the coil. The device is still under 3-lbs. As a beginner with no guidance from others, I started learning how to use the F44 in my yard, at Medina Lake, and at various parking lots that have grassy Islands. At my lunch break, the grassy Islands near movie theatres and between strip centers and restaurants produced a multitude of coins. I would uncover between 7 to 15 coins in 45 to 50 minutes. Then back to work. In the beginning I would rush through the areas and try to get the maximum booty, but I learned how to slow down and use the different modes as the machine talks to you, and you must listen to what it's saying. Every time I went back to the same areas I would unearth more booty dropped by pedestrians, movie goers and passer byes. The zero to 99 numbers on this super fast processor are telling a story of what's beneath and the user deciphers and learns the truth through trial and error. Learning the language is a mental challenge, fun and rewarding. I would recommend this Fisher F44 to anyone.
