The Fisher F2 Metal Detector is a professional-quality detector for the entry-level hunter. Lightweight and all-purpose, the F2 makes it easy to get started coin shooting, relic hunting, and even searching on the beach.
Whether you're a relic hunter or a beachcomber, the entry-level Fisher F2 metal detector searches for treasure wherever you go, from the ball field to the beach. Despite its beginner status, the F2 is packed with top-of-the-line features, so you can start scanning right away.
Identify Your Target
The F2 offers several ways to identify your target. The detector's eight-segment visual target ID makes it easy to differentiate trash from treasure, so you won't go digging for coins only to end up with pop tops. The F2 also offers a four-tone audio ID that allows you to "hear" different target metals. And you won't have to guess the metal type thanks to the two-digit numeric target ID, which offers a 0 to 99 range that displays the most likely metal match. The identity features let you hunt even in high-trash areas like parks and ball fields.
Advanced Visual Display
Information is displayed on the F2's easy-to-read LCD screen, which includes a menu-driven user interface. Screen features include a two-digit display that shows the target ID number or depth, along with a target category readout on the top that distinguishes between iron, foil, nickel, pull-tab, zinc, dime, and quarter. The display also includes a depth meter that gives you an idea of the target depth while the detector is moving, along with a sensitivity bar graph and battery life indicator.
Controlling the F2 is a breeze thanks to the simple control panel, which sports large pushbuttons for easy operation. Specific controls include a notch control that lets you ignore a selected trash target category, such as foil or pull tabs; a sensitivity control that adjusts for soil mineralization and electronic interference; and a discrimination feature that lets your machine ignore ground mineralization and trash.
Treasure hunters will enjoy a fast target response while scanning with the F2, so you can swing your coil quickly and cover more ground. The F2 also offers great sensitivity, with the ability to detect small objects up to 6 inches deep. And users will love the super-lightweight body and adjustable arm cuff, which minimize fatigue after a long day of hunting. Specs include a waterproof 8-inch open frame, an operating frequency of 5.9 kHz, and a weight of 2.6 pounds. Designed to run on two 9-volt batteries (included), the F2 carries a five-year limited warranty.

The F2 is great. I didn't have a LOT of money to invest in one, but I wanted something mid-line for a starter instead of something that cost $60 and was sub par. The F2 does fabulous work! It's accurate, it's light as heck, it's VERY easy to operate, the batteries last forever, and the aftermarket is good as far as coils and things.
It was between this one and the Garrett Ace 250, I believe, and I liked the sounds this one made better and the colors are FAR superior - yellow and black? Really? Ew.

I have taken mine out several times now, and it never fails to deliver. Nothing bad to say about it!
I spent the rest of that Monday with buying stuff you need for that...for digging etc. Today I first read the manual and went through the short introduction. That took me half an hour. Then I packed everything together and started the adventure.
I went to an old (really old) stone pit in the woods near a mountain, not used since decades (many) where normally no people show up... and I found plenty of... waste. Well, at least old waste. Tabs, beer cans, various cans and: 1 shell Freres MEN 6x62 and 1 complete round Mauser FNM 71-8 (I had to remove the projectile very careful at home to remove the grain). Additionally I found two iron V-notches (wedges? chocks?) obviously used to separate the stone blocks. The were buried really deep and must be very old.
So I probably found nothing valuable but interesting things and I learned very fast how to ignore the totally worthless stuff from the at least interesting one. This tool is great! The depth indicator works very well, on larger iron items the material indicator doesn't work but as the manual says: it's made for coin sized material.
Everything else is perfect. Easy to understand and use. Very light and easy to transport in a back pack.
If you want to start that hobby: go for the Fisher F2!
