What an awesome machine!
on November 23, 2012
The Fisher F-2 is just such a great machine, the different sounds help me when i am not looking at the screen,
The 4 inch coil is great for those trashy areas and gets a respectable 6 inches in my soil
the 8 inch coil is just great for multiple purposes i found it also does well in trashy areas and have found my first Liberty half dollar with it last week!
the F2's Pinpoint feature is dead on and the VIDS really help me by telling me whats trash and whats not,
now the Pinpointer is very chinese and feels like a chinese product and not good at all..... but since its included for free i guess its not that bad
the only thing i noticed about my machine that i didn't like is my rod seems a little wobbly but i don't really mind
a little tip for the beginners if the VIDS and the category are jumping from (example only) like zinc to foil to iron etc
it means its just junk
how much i liked this machine i have ordered the 11 DD Coil to put on it and will let you guys know how much that changed my machine but all and all, I would take the F2 over the ACE 250 anyday the F2 simply is just the better machine.
Edit: The 11 DD Turns the F2 INTO A BEAST! The target separation is so good i thought i had the 4" coil on!
the depth is great just yesterday i got a quarter signal (at 9 inches) and to my surprise it wasn't a regular washington quarter it was a Barber! get the f2 you won't regret it!
