Fisher F4 Metal Detector

Fisher F4 Metal Detector

Product Review (submitted on April 14, 2008):
I have been metal detecting for almost 18 years and have seen a lot of growth in this hobby. I have had 8 different machines and have only had the Fisher F4 for several months. I have already found several nice rings and many coins. Some were of value but most are just new quarters, dimes, nickels and pennies. This new metal detector has very good electronics and they are very accurate. I would highly recommend this machine to the novice as well as the everyday detectorist. It is very easy to use and the screen is very easy to read and also see. It is very easy to use the discrimination to help know which segment you are looking for from pull tabs which are like rings to nickel, pennies, and so forth. The sensitivity control is easy to adjust and it is very easy to understand how to use it and when to change it for deeper targets. The machine is also easy to ground balance and if you are hunting in an area that has a lot of trash you may have to manually balance it, but it is very simple. All you have to do is find an area where there is no junk and just pump and adjust the detector until it’s balanced. Also, this is important to do in heavy mineralized soils.

I have found several thousands of coins and a number of rings as well as other jewelry and antiques along with an old gun and some old horse shoes. I have also noticed with this machine that the notch touch pad has helped me from digging up unwanted thing such as nails, cans and other trash. I would like to say one more thing about this detector, and that is if the machine says there is a target and its 2 to 10 inches deep, you will find it at the level you are told to expect to find it. I would highly recommend that someone looking to buy a new detector would be wise to purchase a Fisher F4. They are very user friendly and most everyone will be happy with it. As I said at the beginning of this entry, I have been doing this for a number of years and have had many different detectors.
