Fisher F2

The F2 from Fisher Labs is a great all-purpose detector. This entry-level offering features a digital Target ID system as well as 4 audio tones to help identify and separate valuable treasure from trash.

The Fisher F2 provides great discrimination features with its 8-segment Target ID scale. The digital Notch control and Discrimination adjustments can streamline your treasure hunting experience by eliminating specific unwanted target characteristics more than once at a time. A plus/minus button setup provides exact adjustments to rejection and acceptance ranges. Several target icons are also visible on the LCD screen and light up when certain conductivity levels are reached, which are characteristic of certain metals.

When the Pinpoint mode is activated the Fisher F2 goes into an All Metal mode with a numerical depth meter to help determine how deep desired targets are buried and where they are exactly. The F2’s depth indicator is calibrated for coin-sized objects and determines the depth of similar sized and shaped objects in inches. Sensitivity adjustments can also be made via the separate set of buttons to counteract EMI problems and also set the F2’s depth and detection performance to its maximum capacity.

The F2 comes with an 8-inch round search coil and uses a frequency of 5.9 kHz. It needs 2 9-volt batteries and weighs only 2.6 lbs with the batteries attached.
