Im gonna do a review of the fischer F2 metal detector. Here we’re looking at the face of the Fisher F2 metal detector. Its pretty simple detector to use and a really great detector for the beginner.
Let us see some of the features:
- 8 segment visual target identification and 4 tone audio i.d
- Fast, sensitive target response
- 2 digit numeric target value display distinguishes between iron, foil, nickel, and other metals
- One-touch pinpoint with numeric depth readout
- Coin depth indicator in motion search mode
- Waterproof 8 inch open frame concentric search coil
- Light weight, only 2.6 lbs including batteries
- Ergonomic s-handle design
- Notch system for accepting or rejecting target categories
- Includes two 9 volt alkaline batteries
- Operating frequency: 5.9 kHz
- Recommended entry-level metal detector for: coin shooting, relic hunting, beach hunting
When you turn on the power button, you will see that’s got a large and easy to read display.
It’s got all the categories at the top. The sensitivity is on the left and you can run that thing wide open if you’re not near any big electrical devices.
As you can see, the picture shows that the Fisher F2 found a zinc target. When you’re over a target you get a numerical rating and then you see the category above zinc is highlighting.
On the right side you get your discrimination button and really as push the button, you can discriminate out items. Just as simple as that. To bring the items back just scroll down and bring them back in.
Fisher F2 also has the pinpoint feature, as you can see the button at the center of it. when you find the target and get close to the object, the sound will get a bit louder and you will also get a depth reading on the screen. Its pretty cool.
The Fisher F2 is implementing the target separation. This machine resets itself very quickly which is good when you get targets close together. You get different tones for different targets.
When it detects iron you will get a lower tone, a medium tone for nickle and then silver you get a high tone. You also get the different values displayed on the detector.
Silver, you get a really high number, 97 to 95 quarter 80-82 dime 70 71.
One tip for beginners as aluminum cans can read at very high tone but they read an extremely shallow.
So if you get a tone that read is 0 and you dig down but you don’t find anything, it probably you got can down there.
It could be six-plus inches, super shallow. So if you have a pinpoint it’s a good idea to when you get a target thats reading like zero depth to1 inch, just rub that thing on the spot.
The maximum sensitivity for Fisher F2 is about 8 “ deep.
Well there’s a quick look at the Fisher f2. I really think it’s a great machine for beginner or someone who doesn’t want to spend a whole lot of money to get in the metal detecting.
You’ll definitely find a lot of stuff with it. It is on the air test and to me it will pick up stuff in the ground at least six inches.
This is good metal detector and I really enjoyed it. I found a lot of stuff, I mean just tons and tons of coins. It’s definitely a coin magnet and even a few silver coins.
