Surprising Performance and Simplicity
January 14, 2005I originally bought the Fast Tracker for my son, but the discrimination is so good I can see myself using it also. The discrimination is as about as good as any thing out there.
The Fast Tracker is simple to use. There are only two controls to think about - Sensitivity and Discrimination. I was able to turn the sensitivity to maximum without any falsing. The discrimination can be set so that pull tabs give kind of broken tone and most everything else of value gives a high or low tone. Iron will only give a short pop or no sound at all if you set it that way. The depth is only about 5 inches, but I attribute this to the smaller 7" coil. A larger 8" coil will probably give better depth. The discrimination can be turned off to put the Fast Tracker in ALL METAL mode. There is no toggle switch for all metals so you will need to mark the dial setting to return to your favorite discrimination setting.
*Excellent discrimination - as good as anything else out there
*Easy to use
*Very lightweight and comfortable
*Low Price - anyone can get into the hobby
*5 Year Warranty
*The shaft is a little wobbly, but I could see no effect on the performance.
*The depth was not as good as advertised 5" vs. 7"
*There is no low battery indicator - I have heard that the newest Fast Trackers have an audible low battery warning.
For the money, this model has surprising performance. It is worth what I paid for it. The Fast Tracker is a good beginner model or an extra detector to have around to let a friend or family use when you want to take them hunting.
