F44 11DD Fisher Metal Detector
Posted on 9/22/2019
I have this detector and am looking for a second one. "Easy manual ground balance is a deal breaker. Back lite display is a plus. Today I tested the weather proof for the first time. When I purchased it I was more concerned with dust and sand. Today at the MD club dig, it sailed through light rain and mist. The double D coil for $40.00 more and a purchase price of $340.0, 2 AA batteries and accurate pin pointer. It is light and easy to carry. I have modified the arm rest by moving it forward 1 1/2 inches by drilling 2 new holes. The arm rest is padded with closed foam from a ground mat used in camping. For a new detectorist not wanting to spend a lot of money it has a lot of features. Almost forgot, you have volume control unlike Big Yellow. My grandson and his father have both taken up MDing. The grandson has a Garrett 350 from long ago My plan is to give my detector to grandsons father and buy GS a new F44. I think there is a lot to be said to having 2 detectors the same. I will probably get the 350 back. No plans to upgrade the 44.
