Most helpful review for Fisher CZ 21

CZ-21, an excellent land and water machine
The CZ-21 is an excellent and easy to use metal detector. Once you learn to use it, you will do very well. It is easy to ground balance and it can be rod, chest, or hip mounted with no problems. It is waterproof down to 250 feet and comes with a straight rod mount that can also be used for diving. The detector, when used in the AutoTune (a wide scan all metal mode) setting is very sensitive, and its 3 tone ID makes detecting a pleasure.
If you want gold, dig the mid tones.
If you are hunting for coins, dig the high tones. If you hear a low tone - it is probably iron.

A low/medium means a possible gold target next to iron. The detector will have trouble finding tiny gold necklaces or tiny chain link bracelets unless they have a clasp, but then the other brands of water detectors also have difficulty in finding such targets.

Be sure to swing the detector coil slow in the water and you will have great success. The pinpoint button takes some getting used to, but after a while in the water you will not even bother using it. Overall, the CZ-21 is an excellent and well built detector that can be used on land or in the water. And, it is proficient in both ocean and fresh water as well as on dry or wet sand.

Very disappointed
I purchased the Headhunter diver in July of 05 hoping to take it to a river in florida where people tube down and loose things every year. I did extensive research on it but it was pretty new and I couldn?t find anything about it but I decided to take a chance. The first one I got flat out did not work, the battery was corroded inside of the battery compartment and broke off inside of it. Then I got another one that worked just fine.
Once I got it down to florida and took it in the water it stopped working. When I got back to the hotel and opened it up I found that it had leaked in both the control part and the battery part. I then sent it back, the company that I bought it from was very understanding and apologetic. The third one that I got started leaking when I took in the bathtub. My boyfriend then did something with the O rings and greased it up. When I took it in the tub again it didn?t leak so I took it to a spring nearby and it worked just fine. A few months later I took it to the beach and the headset never got wet. A few months after that I tested it to see if it was still working because I planned on going back to florida. It didn?t work, when I opened up the battery part they were corroded and when I tried to take one of the batteries out it broke. My boyfriend once again saved the day and got the broken part out, cleaned it up really good and it worked again.

I do not plan on ever taking it in water again, it is not waterproof and the craftsmanship is very bad. I never really found anything except for some change and a few bullets and some junk, I have never really had the chance to look for much yet but I will still give it a chance on land.

I looked and there still aren?t very many reviews on the Headhunter diver so I am leaving mine so that people don?t waste their money and time. I got 3 different ones and none of them worked right.

If you plan on getting an underwater metal detector, don?t get this one. You will be very disappointed.
